A great sequel that could be better,
This review is from: Darker Than Black - Gemini of The Meteor Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
As a fan of the first series, this was a must have when released. And in alot of sense it wasn't much of a let-down. But however there were three things that didn't get it's five stars.
1) Action is plenty but sometimes the chatty parts take up more of the fights, also the fights sometimes end pretty short, making me wanting more.
2) The entire second series was shorter than the first one, making me also want more out it when season 1 was 25 episodes long.
3) The ending also seemed something of a let down, it seemed rushed which also leaves one or two new questions for me. But interesting enough also leaves it wide open for possibly another series.
However, the animation is noticably better with smoother framework on the action scenes. The music soundtrack in my opinion is also a winner, it blends in well with the scenes. Remarkably the English dub hasn't dropped its performance from the first series. The new characters involved also shows the series has no limits of imagination here, where Suo (a new main character) fills the gap of becoming a contractor and also shows Hei isn't completely heartless.
I highly recommamend watching the OVA episodes before the series as it fills the gap and makes it a better understanding. All in all a great series to watch, and hopefully sometime there might be a third series (although none is planned at the moment as I write this).
