Hello everyone at T.H.A.T Anime Blog the name is Keith but I go by Ackmm7. I am one of the new bloggers on the site and as my first post I am going to write about one of my favorite spring shows, Darker than Black.
This episode starts with Yin playing the piano for her teacher. He tries to give her a pointer but she lashes out at him, he just calmly says that she needs to put more feeling into it. Her mother says that she’s not old enough to understand. Yin then starts talking about the moon and how she loves its silver rays so much. It then shows Yin thinking about an airplane accident and Hei and Mao getting briefed on a group of contractors after them. The Astronomy Division gets a signal pointing them in the direction of 2 contractors.
We cut to a large women standing at a railing when a man in a car pulls up. They start talking but notice that they are being watched by the division. The man then uses his power to suck them into him. He notices that they are being watched by the river (this is Yin’s doing) and he trying to suck that one up but Yin falls down in the alley she was spying in a breaks the surveillance. It cuts to the detective office (not these guys again) and inside is Yin’s piano teacher, he wants to find Yin.
We see the contractors that we saw at the river and this time they have names. The man is Itzhak and the woman is Berta. They are talking about there remunerations (price for their powers) and Berta asks for a pack a cigarettes for hers. Hei is talking to Huang on the phone and they are talking about Yin, she has been missing since last night. Although dolls can’t think for themselves so he thinks she may have been kidnapped. Yin is actually watching someone play the piano in the park; thinking about her teacher and mother. Yin is bumped into by Kiko (one of the detectives), she is so surprised to find Yin for her client so fast so they go get a drink. Kiko goes to call Gai (other detective) that she found Yin and they are at a restaurant. Yin at this point is already walking out of the place onto the street.
Yin wanders into an empty lot where Itzhak is waiting. He tries to catch her but is stopped by Mao pouncing on his head followed by Hei putting him in a headlock. Hei suddenly notices Berta behind him ready to use her powers and he jumps aside. Berta lets out shockwaves and some of the nearby building starts to collapse, Hei runs to Yin and manages to save her. As Yin is running away she is found by Gai and Kastinen (Yin’s teacher). It cuts to Itzhak and Berta in a car, Berta starts to eat the cigarettes she was given earlier. Meanwhile Hei is getting scolded for letting Yin be taken by Gai. A train is shown with Gai, Kiko, Kastinen and Yin on it. Kastinen says that it would be best if they went home, Yin responds by saying I won’t go back.
Not a bad episode but I was hoping those detectives would never be shown again. They do add some comedy but that’s not why im watching this show. I like the new contractors; they don’t have ridiculous powers like some of the other characters. Also finally some Yin back story and it seems like everything will be revealed next episode.
