As mentioned before, the ones who're disappointed are more likely to post, while people who like it normally don't. I liked it though, so I guess I'm a rarity.

Now, we add a few more questions to the ones left over from Season 1:

- Who is the boy in the Gate? I assume it's the result of Izanami and Izanagi meeting, Kagutsuchi the Destroyer, if we follow the obvious mythological references.
- Where is the new Gate?
- Did Hei kill Yin? It's plausible, given how Hei actually said he'd do so in the same episode, plus it seems like a way to release Yin from her 'torment'. Also, I'm not too sure he's in the right mindset to take another Third Option like he did at the end of Season 1.
- What role with Earth 2 play in the future? Probably little, really, as it's mentioned to be an Ark, possibly as a backup just in case everything on the original Earth literally goes to Hell.

Episode basically made me go: "What happened?"

Still trying to understand.

Your right, I did forget that scene which makes this ending rather typical now for Dtb. I can only hope for more Hei action if they plan to make another DtB season, I watch it regardless of what I think of how this series ends its seasons.

Rather than a 'new Gate'...from the Japanese, I got the impression that they meant that Hell's gate had opened again.

At about 14 minutes, a grunt reports that "Hell's Gate ga hirakimasu"「ヘルズゲートが開きます」
23 minutes in: "mata Gate ga hiraita yo" 「またゲートが開いたよ」

I'll need to check with someone, but in this case, I think 'mata' means 'again' rather than 'another'.

The whole copy Earth thing is just strange. Where is it now? Another planet added to the Solar System?
Besides Oreille and Misaki and/or Hei, no one else seems to see/know about this copy Earth.

Oh.My.God.

What an ending.

So, could it be the case(even thought, that Misaki said, she thinks, that Hei is alive), that Hei is dead?
Could this be that this is the complete end of the Darker than Black story?

Wow i indeed must get more informations about that.

I didn't think lowly of the ending. I thought it was particularly decent, and some ends were resolved.

With regard to Hei killing Yin, here's my interpretation of it. It's not the same as others, but it's still pretty logical to me.

The star representing BK-201 is still shining brightly, which means Hei is very much alive. Whether Yin is as well though...

I thought it was fairly straightforward actually, but then again given the Postgrad course I'm taking, comprehension comes easier to me these days. I loved the implication, for example, that the US (or the CIA at least) was behind the Syndicate from Season 1 from the very beginning ("There's no longer any need for the Syndicate to act in secret"), or that Dolls start evolving once inside the radius of the Gate (which was something thought unique to Yin, but as we've seen July and Oreille's twins now have different Spectres that can move independent of electrical lines).

Hei is very much alive. His star has even grown brighter. His star is the star that Suou looks upon at the denouement of the show.

Yin is prob dead. Hei killed her after 11 episodes of saying that he's going to kill her. That flash at 20 min was him getting his powers back and killing her at the same time.

Suou also lives in the same area as Hei's/Li-kun's apartment complex and is using a telescope. The coincidence there is too much. She's prob going to meet Hei again.

Poor Misaki. She got her wish but lost Hei.

Suou got her wish and she lost Shion.

Hei got his wish and he lost Yin.

July got his wish and he lost Suou.

No I'm betting that's the other Earth.

Likely as well, though Haruhi knows what kind of gravitic anomalies its existence will cause on the rest of the solar system. Hilariously, I don't think Shion ever made a moon to go with the other Earth... Or did it take Earth's real moon with it?

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, Angelic Layer and Rahxephon had a good ending imo.

The BONES list

And shame on all you people who rated this ep as a 1.

and wtf suddenly there's america coming to state their position as mighty society!?

and what about the other gates which opened (the 2 twin dolls said that)?

wtf xD I have to add this ending to the worst ending I've seen oO

@ the above poster. Yeah, I got a ton more questions than that. Its just that DtB pulls shit out of its hole, doesn't explain how its poo is that way or how it's form. And then given for the consumer to digest. (Horrible)

- Misaki's wish, really, is to see Hei.
- July wanted to stay with Shion. If you haven't been paying much attention, July's actually been changing through the course of the series, and this came to a head in episode 12. Note how Suou and July's meeting parallel Hei and Yin's travel to the center of Hell's Gate at the end of season 1?
- The US is apparently behind the Syndicate from the first season, and now they made their power play and invaded Hell's Gate.
- Apparently the creation of the Second Earth was planned from the very beginning, as it's called an 'Ark'. The implications of that for the original Earth is not good, as you only make Arks when you want to SURVIVE something.

Suou was transported to the new Earth. The memories of all the inhabitants of od Earth gained from the doll network and ME were used to fabricate the new one (season 1 old Earth). Shion made a new Earth where there were 2 parents for Suou.

The Gate had a dark sense of humor...

Suou wanted to find Shion. The Gate allowed her to find him and she lost him in the new Earth. She's an only child there.

July is an evolved doll. He wished to stay with Suou. The Gate granted that wish and transported him to the new Earth with her. However, she's 13yo and he's 10 yo. He lost her due to age differences. Let's face it. It's not cool for a 13 yo female to look at a 10 yo male.

I don't really get it, now there're two worlds? one without contractors and stuff, like in the scenes we saw Suou as schoolgirl and one where america's starting a war to prove their mighty society and where Misaki etc. are "the syndicate"?

and who's that boy/girl who awakened in the coffin and killed the CIA's men?
