~makes sure not to the epi 5 spoilers~

I liked epi 4, at first I thought it was a bit slow, though Mai setting ppl on fire was interesting.
But then Hei breaks out his kick butt side and I was happy!! The glowing effect looked very nice
I still dont get the seeds and the flower being contacted to contracter's

The seeds of the flower could suppress the awakening of contractors powers - hence why one was planted in to Mai's wrist.

O_o That was a slightly weird episode. But it was okay nonetheless. It definitely felt like more of a set-up than anything else but... ah whatever, it's 4:45 am and I want to go back to sleep

However, to think
Spoiler:


Bah, but now I want to know what happens next week. They ended on a rather nice note.

Also, Hei didn't appear for 90% of this episode (PS: This doesn't mean it's bad. Not in the least)

PPS: And Kazuhiko Inoue is \o/

Guys, I wonder what's the point of replying to wao's post (the one with spoilers about episode 6 and 7) if you forget to use spoiler tags when you are replying to it. Come on.

Amber is the name of that girl with green hair in the OP (the one who looks like C.C., she's also been featured in some scans).

There is one Animedia scan that says that "Hei has a purpose, and that is to look for Amber", but
Spoiler for ep 5:


EDIT: The mag spoielrs should be coming any time soon now, but OI OI OI at the staff credits for episode 7. OK, it was already leaked earlier that an "Igarashi-san" was going to do storyboards for the 4th story (=ep 7 and 8), but to think it was the Igarashi-san I was guessing...

Takuya Igarashi. Ouran's director!

What's better is that this rumour/pasted thing/whatever seems to say that not only is Igarashi storyboarding 7, but one of Ouran's better directors, Shingo Kaneko, is directing and Ouran's hardworking character designer Kumiko Takahashi is doing the animation supervision.... no way? I had read on the production blog that that arc is going to be more lighthearted, which makes it very suitable for being done a bit by the Ouran team, but this is a bit too unbeliveable (It would be really unbelieveable if it was Enokido doing the script too...)

Who do you guys think the kids in the preview flashback is? I don't think it's Hei because they look too different. It kind of looks like November 11 except his hair color is different...

I have watched episode four and at first I thought that all the hints an clues regarding Moratorium, the star, and what relationship holds with the Contractors was out off sequence until Tahara gave his proper explanation.

Spoiler:


Tahara's research.
Spoiler:


The conclusion.

Well, Hei and most of the other contractors we have seen are older than 10 years, which is when the contractors started appearing (stated in episode 1), so I don't think they are born that way, but their exact cause certainly is a mystery.
Quote:
My theory goes that when someone awakens as a Contractor that person casts aside her former personality and life. Notice that I am not stating that the Contractors lose their memories or anything else, but I am merely stating that they get rid of any attachments to the ordinary world.
That is a very interesting observation.

I finally finished the first arc of Darker than black it left a bitter sweet feeling . A few unanswered question which are better left that way, primarily though had Hei fallen for Shinoda . Apart from Hei’s chivalry these words also add to that

She wasn’t a puppet she was alive

Overall a good arc reminded me slightly of the movie Entrapment , On a lighter note Hei’s beady eyes and appearance reminded me of L .
