“Why are you scared… You should tell her yourself, as well. She’s no longer human anyway. Tell her to come quickly to my side.”

"I absolutely LOVE what they did to the decor!"

Hong Kong and it's bright city lights~

What an interesting episode. Though it was not as quickly-paced as the first in the OVA miniseries, it certainly developed Yin’s double-personality as herself and Izanami. This OVA series clearly linked the two proper DTB series together through familiar characters from both.


As usual, action was fast and nicely choreographed. What’s unusual was that Hei actually didn’t end up killing anyone, which to me in a way, reflects his quasi-uselessness in Yin’s evolution. This episode clearly showed Hei as essentially being tossed around by his circumstances and Izanami’s toying. Kinda surprising since we’re used to seeing him in control, especially in most of his fight sequences.

No, you probably don't want to make him angry.

It’s nice to hear Misato Fukuen’s Yin/Izanami, and we heard a LOT of her this episode. What quite struck me was Izanami’s voice and character. It is totally different to Yin’s calm passivity, and it actually sounds rather sinister and chilling. Great job.

Say cheese~

Anyway it’s a very interesting episode plot-wise and I have little idea how the remaining 2 OVA episodes will turn out, especially with the return of Evening Primrose. Stay tuned~

    Oh evil Yin is awesome. Poor Hei he has no idea what to do with her. These episodes would have been so helpful before we watched the second season.

    agreed~ but i guess that intrigue kept us watching S2

    Agreed with both Fabrice and ippius, these eps would have helped but it definitely kept our interest afloat after s2. Can’t wait for the next ep. DTB still doesn’t disappoint at all!

    Man, Hei is getting beat down a lot these days.

    Looking forward to the next one!

    Yeh I agree….Hei didn’t really own anyone and in fact got owned by the other contractors and Yin….
    Though at least he has his powers. I didnt like season 2 as much as season 1 simply because we never got to see people getting electrocuted….
