Finally. I finished watching Darker than BLACK (and its OAV) over the weekend, so here’s the review for the series. I’m still rather surprised with how much I ended up liking the series, but I’m not sure I explained that very well in the review. I never feel like I adequately explain anything in my reviews, haha; maybe that’s why they always end up excruciatingly long.
I’d really like to see a sequel to DtB though. If that BONES document leak last summer was right about the Fullmetal Alchemist sequel, then here’s to hoping that DtB part was true too, eh? As much as I’d love to have some answers to the five billion questions I have though, I have to wonder if having a sequel explain it all would take away from the huge mystery that is this series. I watched the last two episodes again while writing the review, but I still can’t be confident in making any kind of solid conclusion about the ending. It’s nice in a way, probably because it’s such a big change from the usual fare.
Side note: I can’t decide if I should bother reviewing the OAV. It’s really not that important to anything, but it was entertaining all the same — probably as close to DtB will ever get to crack.
