I think the previews for Huang's character mentioned that he is jealous of Contractors' powers, which explains his attitude toward Hei.

Sour grapes and all.

Little by little are they revealing more about the nature of the Contractors and starting to disclose or about to Hei's background.

Yes, I don`t think that any character in this show will be black or white (well.. names doesn`t count) .. as far as we see, there are a lots ofs grays. That`s what makes the anime soo good. I really hope that chapter 7 and 8 dont make the quality fall (you know.. as they will be "funny fillers".

Does anyone know why the tone of the show is changing for the next arc? This show isn't based on a manga, so there is no need for traditional fillers.

Doesn't look like a filler to me --- and we shouldn't take what the preview gives seriously. It probably will be a wacky episode, though not in the sense the preview is telling us.

Or i could be completely wrong, and it'll be everything the preview tells us.

You're right, of course, but I think it is interesting that even Mao questions his attitude.

Is Darker Than Black really only going to be 13 episodes. That seems so unlike BONES to have such a short series.

Anyway among other things I finally got around to watching some episodes of this show. True to form, BONES doesn't reveal all its latest series cards, or many at all really in the early episodes, but if Darker Than Black is anything like their other series its going to be worth it when the finally reveal some of the secrets after building up anticipation. I will state that I think this is easily the prettiest series of the season and that the characters are all very interesting and seem to have a story that you want to learn. The Loli as usual seems like she'll hold the Key to the story, being featured in the opening, wearing gothic lolita and appearing to be more than meer eye candy (These tend to be tipoffs). Also its nice to see an opening with Lyrics that are relevant to a series for the first time in a while and that the opening isn't necessarily just a push for Yui Horie or whoever's latest song (Though Darker Than Black wouldn't be the right series to promote that kind of music anyway). Now I've Lost It, I Know I Can Kill, The Truth Is Just Beyond The Gate *Followed by the title card and a shot of Hell's Gate* (Which is mentioned in episode 1 to be blocking the view of something critically important that the inhabitants of the city aren't meant to see). The suspense to find out what truth lies just beyond the gate is killing me as is learning the characters stories and motivations. BONES you've done it again. I just hope the series isn't only 13 episodes as there's easily enough potential in this series for 50 episodes let alone 26.

sometimes they schedule a series for 13 episodes, thus ensure more time and quality.

then they can regroup and do it again for the rest of the story, with a second batch. sometimes i think thats the best method, at leased they don't have an excuse to drop quality halfway though, in animation or story

Chances are, after Ayakashi Ayashi got cancelled, BONES decided to play it safe.

this topic needs a subheading in bright, bold letters that 26 episodes are planned for the series, because every few pages, someone new brings up one issue or another with the idea that it's only going to be 13.

Ep 6 is just excellent beyond words.

Spoiler for ep 6:

Btw, is there an English equivalent for 喪失者 (Soushitsusha)? The DtB Wiki calls them Regressors, but I think the meaning is off.

it's actually 13 stories
since each story = 2 episodes
so in total should be 26 episodes
