Yeah, but it's a bit different when you consider the Japanese only have words for older and younger siblings, not generic terms like simply "brother" or "sister". Most anime are still culturally Japanese in terms of how characters interact even when they're in a non-Japanese setting.

Would be nice if she gets to use the Japanese version: Type 97, since its 20mm (Russian counterparts only go to 14.5 mm).

Please do explain. I'm rather interested in this piece of weaponry. In fact, what is it's real name?
They are impractical since modern tank armor is too heavy and things like a anti tank missiles were much easier to carry into battle and use. Today, they are obsolete, they do not carry sufficient punch to do anything. Should work against those armor cars, however realistically besides going though the armor and killing one soldier from the small battalion it won't do much else. The gun is probably PTRD-41 (one shot). I'm with Suou, its utter junk.

It probably will happen, though i would like it if Suou stays as a normal human being for this story. Chances of that happening are very low though.

Her best friend is now her enemy. Her "ex" is waving a death flag. Her pet is possessed by Mao and her brother is missing. She's almost down to nothing.

Next stop basement...

Anyone else get the feeling they're grooming her to become the BK-201 successor?
- She's almost down to nothing. = NOW SHE'S LOST IT
- Anti-tank rifle = SHE KNOWS SHE CAN KILL
- Japan bound = THE TRUTH EXISTS BEYOND THE GATE

13, I think. As for the groping, I doubt there was much to grope in the first place.

Suou isn't your average 13yr old in the suburb so isn't it reasonable that's she's physically stronger and more mature? Also, the ATR she picked up looked like it was missing a bunch of parts and that's just from what the eye can see, it would not surprise me if there were even more things missing internally.

Speaking of power-ups, I hope she gets some in the chest area as the series goes along (kinda like how Ed Elric gets taller in FMA).

Suou will have to change her mentality towards killing and leave all those moraldriver (well, guess it was her first and last time stopping Hei to kill someone) behind if she wants to survive.

I always get my hopes up on protagonists, not only because they go through the most changes in the story, but because I think she's meant to change everyone around her as well.

I'd like her to stay as is, character age always gets undertoned in anime (like, from 17 to 15, 15 to 13 etc.), so keeping it real would be better for me.

That's the key power of a protagonist, they don't need to kill in order to survive

You really think so? It's not a shonen-anime after all where you can save yourself all the time and at the same time save others...

I'm inclined to believe she won't start the killing because there are plenty of people who can do it for her (Hei, Shion, etc.) and because someone has to keep their hands clean in order to have a higher position of speech, which casually goes to the main character.

True, but the deer scene would suggest they at least want us to think she'll have to kill something at some point.

Hei and her won't be toghether all the time.
Actually i think they will be seperated very soon.

And a higher position of speech because you haven't killed ? Come on, it is Darker than Black.
We don't need a moralteaching-loli besides Hei, certainly not.

And what you are saying is wrong. Hei was the protagonist of the first season. He killed pretty many people, hasn't he?

Believe what you want. I hope i am confirmed very soon.

Well Hei was clearly not a hero, he was introduced as an assassin and all, while Suou is "just another girl", y'know? Of course, this IS DTB so the probability of what you said being the way things turn out is there too...I just like to get my hopes high
