Just fantastic.

Episode 21 will be the hit too

Towards the final this show is getting more and more brilliant.

Btw:

SInce the characters do resemble each other pretty much, the guy in the white silk, is he the one with the "blood-attack" again?

In the end Hei shall die peacefully.
Yes is Weiss... he is scary..i dont want him near to Hei.. . The preview show a fight between them.

Well actually Hei is really intelligent rather than being powerfull.

He made most of his power so far. There are much more dangerous powers than Hei's elecricíty

Without the "doll" (who showed great interest in Hei, since he saeved her and even kissed her) in the first two episodes, Hei would be quite dead.

He's skillful and athletic more than "intelligent". The guy's a damn ninja even without his power, which is really more of a bonus.

Yeah he is pretty atheletic, but i mean intelligence in reagard to his combat senses!

He knows when to fight and how to fight properly. ALso very fast in analyzing the situations.

Remember he gavve himself an electroshock to counter the opponent's? Without this, he would be pretty sure dead.

So skillfull means not only athletic but also mostly "intelligence", which helped him out big time.

He is very athletic and fast!, but more than ninja he seems to be trained in the cirque du soleil... and yes he is very clever.. but about his power, i have the feeling that he hasn`t show all the real power that he has...

Well the time he will show his maximum power could most probably be the last time, since the (yet unknown) remuneration he would have to pay would cost his life

Great episode, if DTB had it's own sub-forum with threads for episodes, I'd give this one a 9.

my interrest in that serie has been slowly dying when it stoped being dark, so i had stoped watching it, i must admit i was pretty confused when watching the new opening of episode 20. i though i had download an episode of wagan midnight or initial D.
apart from that, the show is still too convential to make it really worth my time too bad it couldnt keep the atmosphere of the first 2 episodes...

Hey wao, I had a thought this morning. Wanna bet that this is how the final eps will be named?

Ep 23 - 神は天にいまし
Ep 24 - すべて世は事もなし
Ep 25 - 黒より暗し, 黒の契約者

I still don't understand the scene were Huang is pulling Shihoko with him in episode 19. Is that the first time they met?.

And so the boundary between human and Contractor becomes even less prominent after these two episodes.

I was wrong about Contractors being normal people who gained a power in exchange for becoming emo. They are normal people who gained a power in exchange for becoming tsunderes. It's been obvious a long time ago that Contractors are not self-centered killers, and that dolls are not emotionless shells.

In this episode, Alma argued that Contractors are just humans with an evolved mind that is more rational and self-interested, just as there are humans who throw away sentiment and focus of becoming rational are able to succeed.

But right from the begging of the series I questioned the whole Contractor issue -- the fact is, if I was cold, calculating and only interested in my own well-being, would I go around killing people and getting into dangerous situations for some government/criminal organization? No I wouldn't. If my renumeration was painful or difficult I'd probably never use my power. So basically, contractors are really just being exploited, and if left alone they would probably live in peace for the most part.

just finished ep 20. the show just keeps getting better. now lets just hope that Hei's death in the last ep is carefully crafted and poignant.

Yes, but there are two factors. One is the "pride of the Contractor", which makes them want to use their power no matter what. The other is that contractors are unlikely to be left alone. There'll always be someone trying to exploit them, which reduces the possibilities of them living in peace.

I'm sure there are a few discreet ones out there, but they won't appear in the story precisely because they're so boring. As for the others, who were found out as contractors... Well, the choice's basically working for an organisation, or being blackmailed by them.

There was a Popularity poll, on the @nifty website, (sorry if its already been posted here >.>)

I only know the first three results, would be great if anyone could translate all the results. I'd guess it would be Misaki, Mao or November next in the poll, though not sure about the order.

1.Hei
2.Yin
3.Lei

That was a "mission" to choose a character for an official wall paper, it was close like two monts ago and the Hei (the winner) wallpaper its in the same page.
The new "missions" are about make cosplayer of Hei or Yin.. you can even download the Hei mask to print it.

So thats what is was.. I pictured it was more like the winner got a wallpaper of him and not you vote for the wallpaper, still it sounds like in the end it was basically a popularity contest.
