Darker than BLACK 2 – CM

 

There was a Darker than BLACK 2 – officially titled Darker than BLACK: Ryuusei no Gemini – commercial that aired with today’s episode of Basquash. As you can see above, it starts with a quick montage of stuff that happened in the final episode of the first series, including Hei’s line about how there is no longer any man named Li. Then comes the interesting part of the commercial, the much wilder looking Hei. It’s not a lot to go on (there are magazine spoilers that reveal more), but it’s exciting to me all the same, and I’m looking forward to the series. The fact that the commercial aired during Basquash today means that it’ll most likely be taking over that MBS timeslot come October, the same Thursday timeslot that the first series had.

    FUCK YES Hei!!

    Beautiful, I really love this series. I cannot wait to see what the 2nd season has in store for us. Really, really looking forward to it.

    Second season seems to not be from the manga, so I hope they can pull it off well enough to not destroy what the first left us with. Maybe they are leaving the Shikkoku no Hana series for a second sequel/third season, considering that one just started.

    I think the manga version is like a little 2-ep arc that not really related?

  • August 6, 2009 at 11:49 pmMegas

    This is DTB we’re talking about. It’s entire theme was a long exaggerated plot twist that took the whole series to pan out. I don’t think they can screw up any kind of sequel as long as it has enough uber action to tide me over, no matter how funky the plot is.

    OH GOD! FINALLY! We have something to look forward to that’s not summer anime b.s.

  • August 7, 2009 at 12:46 amChsel

  • August 7, 2009 at 12:48 amJello

    do not want long haired Hei.
    Do want DTB 2 though. ;___;
    what a dilemma.

  • August 7, 2009 at 12:58 amChimasternmay

    WOW one new clip of him and made my heart beat faster./

  • August 7, 2009 at 1:10 amBK-110

    Looking forward to this. Hei looks badass like always, although I wonder how he now looks without the mask.

  • August 7, 2009 at 1:53 amLoganoob

    This is what i’ve been looking forward to!

  • August 7, 2009 at 3:32 amjlyn101

    i just can’t wait XD

  • August 7, 2009 at 3:56 amChoko

    I wonder what kind of plot it’ll have, since most of the cast died(if i’m not mistaken) in the last episode.

  • August 7, 2009 at 4:50 amwilson191

    Hope it’s a good one.

  • August 7, 2009 at 5:04 amsoldier

    @ Choko:
    Looking at the official title “Darker than BLACK: Ryuusei no Gemini”, I would guess the plot may be something about a change caused by a comet…;>

  • August 7, 2009 at 7:06 amDragonite88

    Any Idea on the opening or ending. Howling was good likeD the song and the ending was alright for the first season.

  • August 7, 2009 at 8:54 amtreble89

    finally,it’s here,though i still confuse with the 1st season

  • August 7, 2009 at 9:24 ambk201

    can’t believe the second season is airing in a matter of 2months =o

  • August 7, 2009 at 10:13 amewok

    good, seems to be my action treat after CANAAN ends :3

  • August 7, 2009 at 10:29 amyUkishin

    i haven’t watch the whole 1st series..but im a fan of heiXgreen-haired girl….>.<hope they do end up together…ahahahhah

  • August 7, 2009 at 10:53 ammira

    Ah man the wilder Hei looks totally rad! I loved the first season. Really excited about this!

  • August 7, 2009 at 11:09 amcha

    does anyone happen to know the song in the background despite it being only like 3 seconds long? sounded great.

  • August 7, 2009 at 1:03 pmK_a_n

    The first season was AWESOME and I can’t wait for the second season. Never really got any closure.

  • August 7, 2009 at 2:17 pmChimasternmay

    @yUkishin
    umm sorry to disappoint u but Green-haired girl (Amber) is no more. and go watch the first season now.

  • August 7, 2009 at 4:21 pmw00tsauce

    lol. when the guy said “darker than black” at the end. god i love asian accents xD looks good, hope it is as good as the first season

  • August 7, 2009 at 4:40 pmReiter

    Sweet. Hei looks badass, as always. I hope they bring back Yin too (maybe more grown up and emotional and less loli and stone-faced?). At any rate, DTB2 is a definite watch for me.

  • August 7, 2009 at 5:17 pmblinx01

    Ah, fall season is indeed something to look forward to.
    Loved the original, but will be interesting to see how they pick things up after the ending of the original.
    Not liking the long haired Hei though. :/

  • August 7, 2009 at 5:27 pmAzure

    Awesome another season of DTB!

  • August 7, 2009 at 6:22 pmdamian

    I thought it was gonna be longer, but it’s enough for now! Thanks Omni, really looking forward to this. Now I just need to get myself familiar with the first season since it’s been a while, and hey just to the right I click on it and read about it thanks to Omni! XD

  • August 7, 2009 at 7:15 pmChimasternmay

    i just hope that the red hair girl is not becoming the main. will p m off.

  • August 7, 2009 at 8:38 pmBAKABAKASHI

    i want to see moaar YIN !!!!

  • August 8, 2009 at 1:26 amKazuhide Aeiji

    I was wondering when this would come out :D

  • August 8, 2009 at 10:28 amLeonin

    Awesomesauce, can’t wait.
    What is L doing there though?

  • August 8, 2009 at 7:37 pmNoemi

    Enjoyed the 1st series, but I kept holding out for something incredible which didn’t really happen. Hope that’s what happens come season 2!

  • August 9, 2009 at 1:04 pmDevin

    The PV is out
    http://www.d-black.net/gallary/index.html

    i’m hoping Omni or anyone that knows Japanese could translate it, it seems to still focus on these new characters…with glimpses of hei.

  • August 9, 2009 at 8:55 pmReiter

    Blargh, just saw the trailer and I’m kinda disappointed that it looks like this new red-haired girl is going to be the main character and Hei a side character? If so, are the creators of DTB2 pulling a Metal Gear Solid 2? Even more disheartening is that there’s no sight of Yin in the trailer. :( At least they have that black lady contractor with the white hair and can control the rain; always thought she was a neat character.

  • August 10, 2009 at 5:39 amPothine

    OMG!!! I love it *.* I can´t wait >.<

  • August 10, 2009 at 6:03 pminvAZN

    @ Reiter
    I really don’t think that Hei will take the role of a side character, he’s the freaking icon of the show and same with Yin.

    I think the PV was scenes taken from the first episode just as an (re)introduction to the whole DtB plot like the Contractors and whatnot.

    As long as they don’t try to replace Yin with new girl, I’m fine with it lol.

  • August 10, 2009 at 9:27 pmslamdunkfan

    I am willing to bet Season 2 will be flashback from south africa then fast forward to the present. I hope i see some more misaki and hei development.

  • August 10, 2009 at 11:22 pmPutang

    meh… I dropped this show at episode 7…

    i lost all interest in this when they added a fucking private investigator type character to the story… i hate those kind of characters who aren’t REAL investigators and don’t mind their own fucking business…

  • August 11, 2009 at 2:10 amender650

    Its great DTB came back, I didnt think it would for a while after S1 ended. Looking forward to the new episodes

  • August 13, 2009 at 6:11 pmmads

    OMG YES!

  • August 19, 2009 at 3:55 ammy guess

    yay, this makes me happy. I just hope at some point they make Hei say: “Ever get hit with a 1000 volts of awesome?” …:)

    but this makes me excited

  • August 20, 2009 at 7:39 pmBlack_Otaku

    I just finished watching season 1. I can’t wait for this new season!

  • August 28, 2009 at 3:42 pmslipher

    darker than dark is a fan-freackon-tastic series, I’m so looking forward to this new seaon he totally looks bad ass, perhaps this new seaon will include a comet hitting earth createing a new heavens gate since the last heavens gate was was destroyed by hei’s sister pie in south america and lets not forget that the sintacit still exists.

  • September 3, 2009 at 3:35 pmIrkm

    Its ironic. A few days ago I had the sudden urge to rewatch the series. And right after I finish ep 25 I see this. Amazing timing. I can’t wait!!!

  • September 9, 2009 at 10:07 pmFellshadow

    Just btw for everyone that thinks Darker Than Black was based off the manga, you’re mistaken >.< The Anime came first and the Manga was made after it.

  • September 11, 2009 at 5:38 pmtracy

    I hope hey is still sticking with yin !!!!!!!!!!!! love them together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • October 9, 2009 at 2:08 amwutupz

    reference: Gundum 00. Neil’s replacement, Lyle

  • October 23, 2009 at 1:17 amslipher

    I really really hate this new addition to darker than black, I mean seriously hei is a slightly fat stinkin druck, yin is died, and hei isnt free he’s working for the cia I mean what the hell ;[
