Darker than Black Watch Order Guide

The Darker than Black is a series with a lot going for it, including an engaging, maturely dark, brooding fast-paced mystery plot and colorful cast of diverse characters. The main “paranormal powers at the cost of something” gimmick of the show sets it apart from other anime of its genre and is something that drives viewers towards the show.

The battles and action sequences of Darker than Black anime play an essential role in its appeal. However, beyond that appeal, it also features deeply unnerving narrative themes. It requires the viewers always to stay focused on the dialogues and events that unfold in front of them.
