Hei, The Black Reaper

The story goes like this:
The world has changed. It is vastly different than the world we know today. A select few of the human race have been given specials powers. However, in return these "contractors" lose their soul, their feelings, their humanity. In combination with their special gifts, they are the ideal assassins. They always do the logical thing, and always do what benefits them.

Amongst the many contractors that walk the earth, one strikes fear into the heart of masses: the Black Reaper. Together with his human companion and his Doll, the Black Reaper is under the control of the Syndicate, a mysterious organization that manifest itself into every thing.



As the story unfolds, the answers slowly come out and the plot thickens and its just plot twist after plot twist. Hei, or the Black Reaper, meets many interesting human and contractors a like, each with their own stories.

The story is fantastic as it is complex. The action just never ends and the battles are never dull. Animation/artwork is nothing special, but the character development and the plot twists are really what sets this anime apart.If you enjoy, high octane, action-packed animes, then you will love Darker Than Black.

As always, check out my pages for more reviews!!

Excellent, Excellent,

Darker Than Black the first season will always remain my absolute favorite animes of all time. An interesting and well thought out story, executed beautifully, that crafts an immersive world that you wish you had more time to know. Unfortunately, the second season was extremely flawed, it seemed to have lost all of the intelligence and careful story telling that season one possessed.

Beautifully Dark and Dangerous

4.0Overall
This series was fantastic!
I absolutely adored all of the characters, and just how dark and meaningful the show was in general. By the end of the show I was hooked, and very much in love with Hei.
I would recommend this series to anyone who likes Noein or Elfen lied. Any anime that has a bit of a darker storyline, or gruesome content. (hence the name)
However I just had a couple comments

Hellow Everyone~!
It's time for another one of my anime reviews.
This review is for Darker Than Black.

I really really liked this anime! The main character looks dull. (Duller than any of the other anime characters on the series I've noticed)
But once he puts one his cloak and mask he become.... a super cool and dangerous phantom of the night~! Man, what I wouldn't to have a guy like that!!!! lol back to the story. OK! Well and the rest of the anime is about his prosecute
I thought it was so funny that he meets so many outrageous people! That's one of my fave parts!

Over all I rate it as EXCELLENT!

So if your looking for a good phantom of darkness type character with issues, this is a good anime for you!

Different from Other Anime

5.0Overall
It is not often that you find an anime that came out before it's manga, but that is exactly what happened with Darker Than Black. Perhaps because of this, it is totally different from any other anime I have seen.

The quickest way to describe Darker Than Black is that it is a dark take on superheroes with a mystery story. In the world created from it, there are people who are called "contractors" who have superpowers and are said to be void of emotion. These contractors -just like the name suggests- can only use their powers if they fulfill a "contract" of sorts that is different for everyone. One contractor might have to wear a hat with bunny ears, while another might have to chew on a pieces of glass. Without doing this, they will not be able to use their powers.

Most the contractors work for an organization of some sort, and it is no different for our main character who is known as Hei. He is given missions that must be completed under all circumstances. Sometimes he has to go undercover, but other times it is as simple as killing someone.

Contractors are only supposed to think logically, so when Hei starts doing things his own way, he gains the notice of his organization. He ignores this, and is dead set on finding out what happened to his sister, Pai.

I can't say too much more without ruining it, but I suggest you watch it! It is slow paced and (big surprise) dark, but it is an anime you will remember.

Just a warning, the end is pretty complex and confuses a lot of people, so make sure you pay attention.

Brilliant, a must see for anime fans!
