4.0 out of 5 stars Rocky Beginning, 19 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Darker Than Black - The Complete First Season [DVD] (DVD)
I spent the first few minutes of the first episode watching through my fingers, and flinching as one guy broke his own fingers. I didn't really warm up to any of the characters until near the end of the episode, and the only one I really liked got killed off before the episode was finished.
Despite the rocky start, I completely fell in love with the characters, and am now eagerly awaiting season two in the mail.
Part of this is that you can't really help warming up to certain characters once you get a sense of what the hecks going on, part of it is the episodic story format drags you in, dropping little crumbs about the characters here and there and reeling you in slowly and then BAM!
Character centric episodes. Conspiracy. Arc-plots, rather than arc sub plots which are completely obvious in retrospect. I kept watching even as my second favourite character got killed off. Usually, that's the point I roll my eyes, and turn to my notebook or ipod or something. That is how awesome this series was.
