Ah yes, Darker Than Black: Here's a program that most certainly gets me to stop in my tracks in effort to enjoy even when my "tracks" include shows that are longer, more hyped, and have already been released in their entirety. After all, this is a series I picked up in the fourth installment, backtracked to the first and now will attempt to evaluate this, the 6th and final, DVD release of the show. My sporadic route to getting here aside, the sixth Funimation release of the gritty superhero drama follows the format of the prior four volumes in terms of structure and runtime.

Containing episodes 23-26, Darker Than Black 6 comes in at a runtime of 100 minutes even. Just like in the previous sets, the four episodes within are actually a pair of two-parters. Wearing an appropriate TV MA rating (17+), DTB makes frequent use of violent sequences and occasional gore. Language leans toward the adult side but vulgarity is certainly not gratuitous. Additionally there is no real nudity or sexual situations to report.

These four episodes come packaged on a single disc within a standard sized DVD case (with cool foil art wrapping). Extras come in the form of an English cast commentary over episode 26, production artwork stills gallery, textless songs and Funimation trailers.

Language options are typical sub & dub meaning the option of original Japanese dialog track (stereo) or an English dub (5.1 Dolby Surround) and English subtitles available under either.

The show, for those who know nothing about it, can best be described if the Japanese were to develop a serious incarnation of what we Americans might consider comic-book superheroes.

In Darker Than Black volume 6, all the story threads and hints from the entire series get neatly wrapped up with one or two exceptions. The animation in this series is gorgeous, and the music by Yoko Kanno really sets the mood. The ending is a little rushed, but this still is one of the year's better anime series.

This is the 6th DVD in the "Darker Than Black" series. Since this DVD contains episodes 23 - 26, I recommend starting on Darker Than Black: Volume One as there is a lot of backstory not explained in these episodes.

Unlike the previous volumes, the four episodes on this DVD are more standalone, with the first three concluding the main plot line that was building up since the first episode. Most of the outstanding questions about Hei (AKA: BK201, The Black Reaper) and his sister are finally answered. We also learn more about "The Syndicate" (the group Hei worked for) and the shadowy Pandora organization.

This is an exciting and action packed volume that provides a satisfactory conclusion to the Darker Than black series (there may be a new `season' in production).

Recommended!
