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... welp, it doesn't. 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). -- Update: After re-watching Season 2, I admit that Hei's strategies for fighting without his powers was still interesting. I guess I was just feeling bitter about S2 at the time.

You all may think I'm being overly harsh on season two but I'm not. If you loved the first season as much as I did, you would hate season 2 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.

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.

I will in the review give my reasons as to why the 2nd season is very good and not worthless in terms of story like most people try to make it out to be. This first part will be a review of the 2nd seasons content and then a product review overall.

The 2nd season follows after the OVA's left off where Hei is now in a stupor as he searches for Yin who was kidnapped, he arrives in Russia working for the CIA where he is sent to capture a boy named Shion.

So the 2nd season of Darker than Black had a lot of hate given to it because of the confusion about what happened to Yin and Hei. Also many didn't like the introduction of a new character a young girl named Suou. This confusion was the result of many people not watching the OVA's between the 1st and 2nd season. This was critical because it explains what happened to Yin. Suou as a character was great or bad she was just along for the ride and this was meant to be because of event that happen in the story with the character Shion.

Another important aspect of where people get confused is the fact that Darker than Black is following the Izanami/Izanagi/Kagutsuchi legend, which helps to explain what the over arching ideas of the story are and how the names correspond to the characters. Most believe that Hei is Izanagi, Yin is definitely Izanami, and the result of their being together would be Kagutsuchi. The last few being speculation by most viewers, but this helps to clarify their story and why Yin is changing from a normal doll to something else

Okay on to the actual product review, this version was perfect for someone who already owns the 1st season if it comes in a single DVD case because the chipboard case leaves room for the 1st season so all of it can be held in one box.
