Darker than Black: Ryuusei no Gemini Final Impressions

My most anticipated anime of the Fall season: Darker than Black: Ryuusei no Gemini.

It was hands down the best action series of this season. The animation for the fight scenes were well done, but the amount of these scenes seemed to dwindle as the series went on.

The changes between the 1st season and this season felt out of place. I was surprised at Hei’s change of character along with all the focus on Yin. She didn’t seem to hold that much importance in the 1st season – at least not at the level of world affairs.

I also didn’t really like the focus on the new character (Suou) and preferred the old times with Hei masquerading as Li Shensun.

The 12 episode length of this season made the series simply too short. The ending felt a bit rushed and could have used some much needed explanations, but I guess they wanted some confusion/mysteries to remain as they work on another season.

Despite all this, it’s still one of the best anime for the Fall 2009 season. On a side note, Misaki needs to hook up with Hei already.
