If Shion's creations can leave behind a corpse, we can assume they are permanent.
That being said, Suou and Dad are in the fray so they won't be spared.

Suou is my favorite character in both series. I feel about her the way the Yin shippers feel about Yin: let's have a season three with the 19-year-old version. Not that I don't like Yin, too, and look forward to the mini OVA series.

But they could end this well in two episodes if everyone except Misaki dies, and Misaki is left as "Everyman" to deliver the eulogy.

However, the apparent popularity of the show makes me think a third season is possible. 2channel rates this #2 for 2009. I don't know what the TV ratings are. DVD#1 comes out later in December, so we will get a better idea of popularity then.

If there is a third season, they might well repeat this formula and introduce someone new, leaving fans of both Yin and Suou to watch eagerly for vague appearances by either, lol.
Ditto, and I had liked Yin alot in s1, but I never thought about shipping in DtB. Gotta say though, if they flash forward to her being a bit older and working with Hei, she is going to be really really cool. This season might end up being a setup season for her next season, since I have wondered aloud a few times if they intended to have Suou replace Hei and kill him off.

But alas, theyve spent a whole season developing her if you think about it.

I dont think theyd just end the series yet, I just dont see the ultimate ending.

But lets be honest that scene was like what less than one second? It was practically unnoticeable and obviously watching it slowly would make some scene looks worse than it is as some of them are not intended to be viewed slowly. It is just like scene that are zoomed in to make them look bad, even though the characters face are drawn in distant so they don't have lot of details.

Suou being copy, I am going to wait until I believe it. There is still a chance that Suou's mom took a copy that was made by Shion. But it would be interesting what this will develop however Suou didn't have identity crises like I thought she might have. So whether she is real or doesn't really seems to matter anymore as character development goes.

Wow this episode was really great. For the 'Yin' at the final scene, I thought it wasn't Yin as I was really sure that it was a guy. I thought it was this 'Izanagi' which Youko was talking about, the person who shouldn't meet with Izanami (Yin). And I don't think its Shion either.

The whole Suou pouring her thoughts and feelings to Hei were pretty touching; and the bmg went good with it too. I was surprised that Mao straightforwardly said it was love, and not some other form of attachment/emotions. what I think are chances of Hei x Suou are? Probably zero. But I don't think Hei is going to form any sort of romantic relationship, but I guess we can guess/dream.

lol at Mao's ankle fetish. He must have been happy as a cat?
And lol at Suou stopping Hei with 'she gave me steam buns!' Hei understands how important that is.

Yeah, I actually wanted Suou to show some sort of reaction to the new and improved Hei, but she's just like... I guess she does have a lot on her mind, which is a shame

:/ I don't think that it was Yin at the end of the episode also, Yoko have told Hei that Izanami/Yin is at 18th reasearch building, unless, it's located in the Gate

Indeed what came out of that cocoon is not Yin she's supposed to be somewhere else. On a side note did anyone else nothing that the uniform she is wearing strongly resemble the one Bai wore in heaven's gate war.

About Youko's death, IT seem Hei brought he to a designated location for torture. Their was all kinds of equipment for torturing people there. But the dead Youko was not online tortured for information, she was beaten to death with a lot of anger. The blood stains and splatter seems to indicate an extremely violent even. A lot of hate was directed at Yuoko by someone, either that or that someone was a complete psychopath.

Anyway, great episode, I'm really looking forward to the final episodes now

As someone mentioned, it's called Dhurarara. It's made by the same staff that made Baccano, from a novel by the same guy who wrote the Baccano novel, and it has a great cast. Should be good.

I never read anyone mention that Hei was violent to Misaki because he felt quite cheated by her. He did not expect the woman he's saved the life of (twice, even) to be a part of the group that's captured and imprisoned the only person he's valued ever since the events of the first season. Were that everyman I doubt anyone would have hesitated. Of course, we know better, but they're not the omniscient narrators of the show, are they?

Well, it doesn't looks like Yin. The face is too round. Seens more like Suou...
Shion said that he copied it, but it was smaller than he thought... any clue about it?
And we have Dr. and Shion in the aquarium, but it has been off-limits for several years. Probably they are already inside the Gate.

Ah Bones, you stick in explanations/plot twists when no one expects them. I never expected we would get Mao back story and what do you know, it's actually relevant! And is it just me or does Mao/Pecha look like they're gaining a bit of weight around the edges? Also contemplating the theory that he might get his real body back at the end of the series via Shion's power.
Speaking of Shion, so he was creepy to start with, figures, the personalities of contractors doesn't seem to change that much actually. And I'm of mixed opinions if Suou is "incomplete" or not. One the one hand, she's made of incomplete memories of 4 and younger and then another six years of memories that were totally made up. But she has spent two years living her own life and has those experiences. But I wonder why Shion created Suou in the first place, accidental discharge of his power after he got it? And I now think that Suou is Izanagi not Shion, it would fit in with Yin, both aren't human or contractor or doll really, they have gone beyond that.
And damn Misaki reacted pretty fast to getting grabbed by Hei, don't think he was expecting that.

If you look close enough, you see a miniature whale in the tank. I believe that was what he was referring too

Enjoyed the despicable origins of Suo c/o of Dr. Pavlichenko, being in the Syndicate. Guess Shion was in the conspiracy at the start.

And yeah, RIP Yoko. I'll burn some paper money and a house to spare you the afterlife.

PS - Digged Mao's ponytail. XD

@Yu Ominae -- Hey, there's nothing "despicable" about Suou's origins. Her mother shouldn't have interrupted the process, is all I say. Papa was crazy, but that was the right thing to do, in my opinion. Maybe Mama really will come to regret it. Suou may be an incomplete copy, but she's a complete human being, it seems to me.

@wandering-dreamer -- I thought Suou was likely made soon after she was killed, and given what memories papa was able to get before he mother took her -- with the addition of the day at the aquarium. Maybe she had to be remade after the explosion two years ago, but she existed on that trip then with her father and brother, didn't she?
