If Darker than Black aired this season, would /a/ still like it? Hei is edgier than Kirito and the first episodes were mediocre.
>>
/a/ actually hated DtB for a good while when it started airing because no one knew what the fuck was going on and the first episode made Hei seem like a weak ass punk while we thought that doll bitch was a main character. /a/ also liked the second season until long after it finished.
>>
>the first episodes were mediocre
Nigga pls
>>
/a/ will bitch about anything and everything because S3 would be overhyped. Most would probably still watch it anyway because we all want answers concerning the S2 ending.
With that said, an actual 3rd season will never happen.
>>
Not in S1 he's not

>Hei is edgier than Kirito
I was talking to someone yesterday about this. He's edgy as fuck but bones make him work somehow, though he's a lot less edgy as an alcoholic failure in season 2.
>>
>>100504785
It makes sense for someone like Hei to be edgy, as he was killing people even from a young age. Contrast that with a faggot prodigy who risks his life in a fucking video game.

Hei is more believable and likable than Kirito ever will be.
>>
>>100503770
I can't imagine Darker than Black not being edgy by /a/'s standards since it isn't about cute girls doing cute things but professional killers "without emotions".
>>
I never liked it.
>>
>>100503770
>Faggot in a game constantly winning and with crazy amounts of pussy at his disposal being "edgy".

This word just gets tossed out for whatever reason these days, isn't it?

It's sad you guys aren't even trolling.
>>
>>100507460
But Hei IS edgy, and if you read the thread we explain why and why it works in his case.
>>
>>100507677
What's the definition of edgy? It gets thrown around so much, like weeaboo, I forgot the definition.
>>
>>100507794
It's just another term that's been abused so much that it means nothing.
>>
First episodes were some of my favourites. It was so subtle with how it handled Hei, the connection between the masked Contractor and the mild-mannered travelling student weren't immediately apparent and I loved how they didn't need to directly reveal or explain what his ability was.
>>
>>100507888
Aside from the whole electric batman. What WAS his ability?
And I didn't think he was a contractor, he didn't have to renumerate, right? I thought his imouto gave him his electric batman powers and the other thing which I didn't pay enough attention to, to understand.
>>
>>100507794
Go look it up. It's mostly used ironically.

>>100507794
I think it's a flavour of chuuni.
>>
>>100507999
yea she was like inside him
>>
>>100507999
At the first episodes, I thought eating lots of food was his remuneration.
>>
>>100507999
His ability was the electromagnetic force.
>>
>>100507999
Molecular manipulation or some shit.

The manga had him being able to stop a gun from firing.
>>
>>100507794


Basically anything that has serious tones is edgy these days.

Person with a troubled past? Edgy
Person motivated by revenge? Edgy
Show with violence? Edgy


Its all over the fucking place
>>
>>100508327
If it has those, it's edgyshit.

If it doesn't, it's moeshit.

From what I observe, it's usually those characters with immense anger. The brooding type of anger instead of the furious rage kind. And is usually very cold to everyone.
>>
>>100504034
>/a/ also liked the second season until long after it finished

Uh huh, sure. Maybe there was less complaining during some of the airing (because Hobo Hei was amusing), but the ending was ridiculous. No one thought this was good.
>>
>>100507999
Basically just conducting electricity with his body. He could zap things he touched, or send a current through a conductive medium he was touching to zap whatever was at the other end. He could also control the amount of zap he sent through enough to be either lethal or non-lethal.

They stretch his ability later on to be a lot more than just zapping things, which makes a lot of sense if he's able to control electricity like that, but it's kinda lame that they had to break his ability down from being a very simple and clear-cut one into something so ambiguous

Season 2, the one where Hei mentors the little Russian girl. Sometime during the season there's this bitch (pic) who shows up, she has dolls or something that let her learn all sorts of shit which fits the story.

But then at some point she shows up wearing a space suit, has a lazer zoop zoop gun to zoop zoop people with straight out of 50s sciene fiction and she has a magic floating car that travels through time? None of which makes any sense, has any backing, or is ever explained why/where it came from.

The show takes great pains to show while contractors do have their emotions stunted due to their abilities, it's not like they are outright nonfunctional psychopaths. You can see various forms of "humanity" in several contractors though I thought the most notable was Bertha, the opera singer and her remuneration even when compared with Amber or Havoc.

>>100503770
The show was as much about the supporting cast/enemies and their arcs as much as it was about Hei. Honestly, I didn't think the starting episodes of DtB were mediocre if you are comparing them to SAO. I'm not quite sure it'd be all that popular if it was airing today but it wasn't all that popular when it was first airing anyway. It was pretty buried under TTGL thread and the counter LS threads despite Anonymous translations going on.

Hei has a dark personality with a tragic past.

Calling him edgy is inaccurate, because he doesn't even really like being a contractor or killing people. He just does it as a means to an end, where is end-goal is actually for the sake of his sister and completely unselfish nor malicious.
