There's something that has been bothering me since watching episode 10. It's revealed that Suou died 8 years ago when the university was bombed. I thought that Shion got his contractor powers 2 years ago during the Hell's Gate incident? How would he have been able to clone Suou if she had died 8 years ago, but he didn't have his contractor powers until 2 years ago?

Shion has been a contractor since birth

In the US the release date is for March 23rd so you have a bit longer to wait unfortunately.

Weird question, but... Is S2 finished? After just 12 episodes? And if it isn't, how many are there gonna be? If it is finished, is there going to be a new season? It's kind of a strange ending for the story if it really ends at EP12 S2 Oh and I was wondering if I should read the manga and if so which chapter should I start at?

I would like to add that Hei's gluttony can also be a representation of him filling up the void within himself, hence Hei = black. Well, he could have been a glutton during his "happy times" with Bai but experiences can change how one previously perceive things, recall Havoc's dialogue concerning eating.

4.Does the people that work with Misaki have a fetish with Hei? Seriously, they chase him around everywhere and try to lure him in.

5.Is hei a contractor or a human? Before and after he lost his powers.

6.Is Suou a contractor?

7.How did Norio come to become a pedophile? All lovey dovey on Suou.

8.What are the Heaven and Hell's gate, and why are they important?

9.Why is there no corrolation between Season 1 and Season 2?

10.Seriously, why is Hei so damn emo? And he drinks more than my Russian friend.

Bai has transmutation powers. She has the power over energy, particles, etc. Like the Silver Surfer or something.

According to the sub, I watched... she was able to change Hei's body in the same way her body was and give him a copy of her powers. At least, allow him to tap into her power source.

His powers are "artificial."

My guess... this could be the "premise" of a third season. People trying to recreate what Bai did and take powers from a contractor and give them to someone else.

Nick seemed to have the same powers Bai did. Why? or were they just similar?

Hei powers are very complex and the easiest way to manifest them is to just manipulate electrons.

----
Hei is a faux contractor, real human. Hei has never thought as a contractor. Hei has always sacrificed his own self interest for the sake of others. He gave up his chance at a regular life to protect his cold, distant, contractor sister. He killed tons of people he didn't want to kill as a super assassin for the sake of his sister. He's always been an extremely emotional, irrational, guilt-ridden love fool that has put on a face of a hardcase. He's the surly troubled loner. He's a common hero/antihero type. He wears black, looks sad, talks the game of being some hardass emotionless killer(which is totally BS), and has every chick he ever meets wanting to have his children when he takes a bullet for any young couple, orphan, cripple, puppy, kitten, or hamster that he sees in danger.

A few questions. Season 2 is over correct? Are the new OVA's a sequel or fill up any plot holes? Basically, since I like having all episodes before watching, should I start season 2 or wait till all the OVA's are out.

I don't know. Okamura had said that S2 is the end and he wants it that way.

Only the released OVAs that we hear of now will cover some gap from S1 and S2, just like the Shikoku no Hana manga's doing.

Anyone know the name of the insert song that plays at the end of Ep 12, and if there's a release date for it on an album or single? The one right before the credits. Not sure if it's played in previous eps and I'm also too lazy to check anyway.

Isn't Norio only about 16?

In Darker than Black, it's been a decade since contractors showed up. In Darker than Black S2, it's been 12 years. Norio's mom left him when he was about 3, when her powers awoke. So that means he's about 15 or 16 years old dependent of when his mother "awakened."


Suo is 13 or 14. They are about 2-3 years apart in age. Shion was born on the day the gates appeared, that is why he was born a contractor.

Quick question. Does anyone know the release dates of all the DVDs (the OVAs) and could you please post them if you do?
