Review: Darker than Black

This is one of those anime series that I’m very sad to see end. It had a great theme song and the main characters were really well written!

Anyhow, “Darker than Black” is a 25-episode anime series that is based in the future after some catasphrophe has hit Earth making most of South American “inaccessible” to humans. The human race has spit, and now there exist humans call “contractors.” Contractors have various super powers and are now used by governments and crime syndicates as spies and assassins. This is the story of one such contactor, Hei or “BK-201.” I don’t want to give anyway any of the story, since this is one of those series in which most of the fun is watching the situation unfold. Unfortunately, there are a 2 or 3 filler episode featuring a pitiful detective and his cheery sidekick which throw the story completely off. Ignoring those episode, I’d have to say this was a great anime.

I give this 4.5/5, with a half point deduction for crappy filler episodes.
