4.0 out of 5 stars Product info.....not a review of Season Two August 10, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Since Amazons description is a litte vague at this point I was curious just which was a limitied edition. It appears that this version is "Darker than Black: The Complete Season Two {Blu Ray}..The version that is completely black...not the one with white on the side of the box.(they posted this review on both versions).It is in the same style of box as the Limited Editions for "RideBack" - "Dance in the Vampire Bund" - "Chrome Shelled Regios" - "Ga-Rei-Zero" ...etc. I checked another web site (Right Stuf) and here is all the info I could find on it.

"Darker Than Black Season 2 + OVAs DVD/Blu-ray Complete Set (Hyb) Limited Ed."

This limited edition comes with a chipboard art box.

Contains episodes 1-12 and OVAs 1-4 (Kuro no Keiyakusha: Gaiden).

Special Features: Episode 04 Commentary, OVA Part 1 Commentary, Textless Songs, Trailers.

Spoken Languages: English, Japanese, English subtitles.

Hope it helps...At least it helped me buy the right one anyway.

**CONTAINS A FEW SPOILERS, PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK**

The first season of Darker than Black ended with Hei and Yin escaping from the syndicate, and you think that's where season two would begin the aftermath of their escape. Sadly, no. Take a deep breath, and prepare to take in one of the most mediocre sequels to one of my favorite animes. When the second season begins, Hei has long hair and has become a drunk. Why? We don't know why. Meanwhile, we go into a new story about a Russian girl named Suo. Hei just happens to be on a mission that groups them up together, and it starts on of the biggest annoyances of the series - Hei training a little girl. Early on in the series, Hei loses his powers, and it makes the action scenes after this sort of suck. All of the action we were used to from Season One is pretty much all gone, with the exception of our new character, Suo, who wields a giant rifle (which is the ONLY cool thing about her).

You all make think I'm being overly harsh on Season Two. Well, I'm not. If you loved the first season as much as I did, you would hate Season Two as much I do. However, it doesn't mean that the second season isn't worth watching at all. It does fill in a FEW loose ends about what happened to some other characters from Season One. It also introduces some new contractors (who have some pretty interesting abilities). Yoko Kanno's fantastic soundtrack from the first season is also gone, which also makes the music in this season forgettable. The series is also relatively short with 12 episodes, unlike Season one, which was 25 episodes. I'm also not a big fan of the ending.

I was going to recommend avoiding this, but this set also includes a 4 episode OVA (that aired a year after Season Two).

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre, doesn't live up to S.1 November 24, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Season one of Darker than Black is filled with great action, intrigue, and such and such. Season two lacks in almost every department. Sure, there is some great action, but far too little of it. I'm not going to moan about Hei's loss of his powers: in fact, the way he can still take out contractors without using any contractor power himself just underlines how bad a-- he really is. No, the problem with this show is its focus: a twelve year old girl whose contractor power is a magical girl transformation and an anti tank rifle. Now, she's not as bad as she could be: there's not too much whining from her, she's occasionally useful and can fight decently every once in a while. No, the problem is that she sucks up all the attention and everything's focused on her, and she's just not that interesting, at least not until the last couple episodes. Hei and Kirihara, the other awesome main character from season one, are relegated to the back seat so we can focus on a pretty boring 12 year old.

The OVA's are better than the second season in that, packed into 4 episodes is as much action as the entire 12 season two episodes. The first OVA starts off with a four way fight between Hei and some syndicate contractors, so it's immediately intense. The tone manages to match the first season better as well, being more tense and filled with a real and oppressive feeling of danger to our main characters. It also should be watched before the second season, as it sets that season up.

Now, for the packaging: the blu-ray/dvd combo comes in a nice art box big enough to slip the complete first season set into if you happen to have that version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Defines Underrated Masterpiece August 15, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Since coming out everyone loves to complain about the second season of Darker Than Black. I will explain why most if not all of these complaints are a result of the series being misunderstood.

The most abundant one is: its nothing like the first season.
Every anime season is produced at least on some level as a self contained being. There is no `five year plan`in anime. Each season is made with only the amount of episodes ordered (so in the case of DTB S1 they didn`t think beyond episode 26) in mind. When or if more does come the creators odften approach it as a seperate series. ie: GITS:2nd gig,Gunslinger Girl Il Teatrino, or Eureka seven AO (a brillant series also being misunderstood and awfully treated.)
The crew had no intention of doing more of season 1 because thay already did that. They threw away the security blanket by having a diffrent setting and mostly diffrent charcters, allowing the franchise to evolve. That first episode is brillantly structred, showing an entirley diffrent group of pepole with one minor charecter from season 1 in a very diffrent context. The clifhanger being the reintroduction of the main charecter.

2.Suo and other anime cliches: As much as I love it the first season of Darker Than Black isn`t very orignal. Sharing a lot of elements with american superhero comics in particular but using them in a terrific way. Season 2 does much the same thing as Season 1 showed they are aware of the faults currently at heart at the anime industry. The writing team chose a le ts show em how its done approach in this regard. Suo is a strong charecter who wont bow to the adults and some pepole may find that approach noff putting but her story is a good one.(However even I cant defend what they did to Mao.)
