Ahahahahaha! Knew it!

They brought in another super powerful Contractor just to move the plot, and when they are done, they just kill him off. It's already a gag, considering how many times they've done this already...

The rest of the episode... Meh, nothing that great. I guess one good thing in the episode was that they didn't do Suou's deredere over that old man...

Mmmmmeh, mixed feelings. On the one hand they did emphasize again for the nay-sayers that dolls do still have a degree of free will; even July was helping out without instructions. And we got some focus on how Suou doesn't think of dolls as just tools, just as Hei did. (I say "did" because he seems to have devolved a little bit to the "dolls are just tools" mindset himself as part of his new emo-self, although he shows a bit of appreciation for July at the end)

On the other hand, we get a "freak of the week" villain, and they really could have integrated the parts with Suou's appreciation of dolls into a more plot-oriented episode rather than basically have almost everything come to a standstill for a story about Suou and dolls. This is really not what they should be doing in a 12-episode series. At least the next episode looks to be furthering the plot again.

6/10

Dr Pavlichenko fabricated the official document of his family member registration TWICE. It's not revealed when, but I think it implies death and rebirth of either Suou or Shion. However, a question is remaining. From the beginning, we were informed that Dr Pavlichenko can forge human's memory, but how can he have a replica of physical body for himself and Suou/Shion? Is this related to Shion's ability as a contractor? Well...

Genma describes the NAO as a roost of dolls. Interesting.

Btw, I think Iriya Sokurov is working for Russian Agency.


Finally, the most important thing. There is no henshin scene in this episode!

Hei to the rescue yet again, with his rave music!

I really liked this episode. Some nice development for July and Suou development, and at the same time we get to laugh at Hei's disguise. & laugh i did.

The contractor in this episode was a creepy, eerie guy. Kinda lost that image when he started talking though.

& the best scene this week has to be Suou planning to hit Mao with a snowball.

I don't know if this is revelant but in the Gemini myth one of the twins gives up part of their life so that the other may live. Darker than black seems to be following this myth based on suou and shion's stars, so maybe Shion did infact give up part of his contractor powers so that suou could live after the meteor. The other power of shion could be in making duplicates.

Fun episode. Some familiar faces showed up again. Mao delivered his old man routine. Suou went into a contractor trans with some grisly results. (When did she train at throwing projectiles?) Poor July got the naked child duty this week. (Hang in there, little guy! Maybe with enough emotional development you too can start killing contractors left, right and center with your observation ghosts.) And Hei swooped in for the rescue.

If nothing else, I'll remember that creepy psycho-killer anesthetist for keeping this episode maho shojo free.

Shion probably makes the clones and Dr. Pavlichenko takes care of the memory transfer.

Had just watch DTB for about 5 days...I must say, I shouldn't watch this in marathon when I haven't even watch this before. It makes my mind full of it and I don't think I can't think of anything else beside DTB for this week >.<

anyway....surprisingly, this episode is quite good for me o.o and for some reasons, Suou looks more 'human' than before >_>;

This wasn't the best episode so far however it was an OK episode.

It felt more like a filler-character development episode for Suou, Hei's teachings are really coming in handy for her. I think it's the first time she actually tried to kill a human being, or rather to say, she inflicted serious wounds on her victim although I don't think she hit anywhere vital but she could have died from bleeding.

Another question that popped into my mind is, why did Hei say "You should thank July"? How did he know July helped him since he can't see observation spirits?

Probably when July observation ghost surprised that psychopatic contractor when he was trying to put Hei into 'that' state to kill him. After he was surprised, it seems that Hei managed to gain consciousness(?) and managed to kill him at last.

The problem is, how can he manage to find their place ? probably with informant or something like that...

It was a a mediocre episode, The pace is suffocatingly slow. Though we did finally find that souo's dad is alive and well. But Hei & co. haven't even reached tokyo yet, I should give up hope for seeing any more older characters though.

Also Illya was interesting but was snubbed out without any real exposure.

A soothing episode. Actually liked that glass throwing. Not much action but still watchable and enjoyable.
