Completed Darker than BLACK tonight and there’s so many things I’ve liked about this anime.
At first it may sound confusing but with time you’ll begin to understand the pace of the show and you’ll end up liking it.
Darker than BLACK its about a new age of super-powered agents called Contractors, that began to appear after an incident called “Heaven’s Gate” creating an chaotic area of space that appeared in South America and disappeared five years before the beginning of the series, along with everything in a 1500 km radius around it.
These “chosen” people gain their power to the mysterious power of the Gate surrounding Tokyo. Its still unknown how they gain them but, for any power, comes a price.
All Contractors must pay a price for using their powers, whether they wish to or not. Moreover, it seems that the amount of payment required is dependent on how much the Contractor uses his/her power. Although this payment can be delayed, especially in the midst of combat, it is ultimately unavoidable.
If you like sci-fi, action, drama, and dark themed shows this is definitely for you.
At the end of the show, I asked my friends, which contract would they make and what would be their remuneration?
I’d manipulate electricity and my payment would be not sleeping.
What about yours?
