Wow. Lots of fangirl material being generated for this show. I always knew DtB had potential to be big with that market All you need is Hei in handcuffs, being cold, being in various states of undress, or all three and you have the girls locked in.

All they need is to have November 11 sexually abuse Hei and it will be the front page for every fangirl blog and message sig for the next year.

That is the problem I have with including Akemi as Shihoko, in this case of the hospital scene through the end of that song, she does act exactly like Akemi, that is how I was able to figure it out, as Akemi/Shihoko looks somewhat different as she is a lot older now. The only reason to put her in that hospital was to invoke that scene from the past..., so now you are totally emotionally invested in this character and then she does something evil. And now you have to go back to Saikano, which is not easy to do, to try to put the pieces to the puzzle together, and when you do...
And then beyond that, I think the fact that Shihoko is a contractor also reveals a dark secret about Saikano...
Objectively, I can appreciate the craft, the genius, the almost circular logic.
Subjectively, I am cursing up a storm.

Leave it to BONES to be good at developing the characters to the point that you care about them, even the grumpy old men.

Oh, yes, Akemi & Chise are my 2 favorite anime characters by far, like where #3 is like #98.
I don't really see any semblance between Saikano's Akemi and DTB's Shihiko, albeit both are among my favorite characters in anime.

However there's one thing I think remain unclear : was Shihoko a contractor all the time, or did she acquire/awaken her contractor power sometime after she met Huang? From what's shown, I find it really hard to believe that Shihoko has faked everything from start to finish, and I don't really see any reason of the whole setup.

Btw: (C.G. 2nd season spoilers : I heard they will deal with aliens and with other super-human-powers XD ; nah, this anime is definitely nothing for me!)
That came from someone who has no proof whatsoever and has never been backed up. Not to mention it sounds like complete rubbish so if you're thinking they're for real, think again.

I don't think she was a contractor all the time. Especially since this seems to have been in the very early days after Hell's Gate appeared.

Quick questions for a latecomer.

What episode is Darker than Black up to right now? What is the latest subbed episode you can find?
