Darker than Black : Ryuusei no Gemini – so many things change, yet some are set in stone

November 12, 2009

Note : I’m stopping episodic posts but I’ll still talk about this show.

Changes, yes.

snapshot20091112212911I have to say, I’m quite impressed with New Mao and New Hei. Wow. Mao the flying squirrell and Hei the alcoholic. I guess the CIA does not pay well enough, or it’s somehow Yin’s fault. Les absents ont toujours tort.

I mean, to go from that :

a loooot of Suntory whisky must have been involved.

Hei finally starts eating at episode 5. He almost had me worried here.

Apparently, Hei still hits redheads though. I know he’s no angel, but Suou does get a hard agent training. Oh, see, I’m not only talking about changes from the first season. Did I mention that Suou becomes a contractor ? Even if she doesn’t turn all emotionless/logical/jerk right away, she does undergo quite a change of behavior. Not as striking as Tanya, but still.

And that things comes out of her, by the way. Okay. She’s becoming quite the interesting female lead…

But there is something you can count on, a rock, an anchor, an everlasting pillar : Kirihara’s obsession with BK-201. Thank you, Misaki.

Let’s first take a walk down Memory Lane…

Poor Misaki. Her heart aches so much. She even gets teased at work. You go, girl ! I still enjoy her stubbornness and dedication.

I hope she won’t get disappointed. They might come in contact soon, after all, thanks to the mysterious Izanami.
