Sakura Sakurakouji may seem like a frail and demure girl, but in reality she’s a powerful martial artist with an unmatched sense of justice. One day, on her way home from school, she witnesses a boy murdering several people with bright blue flames. That boy is Rei Ogami, a merciless assassin known as a "Code Breaker", and the latest student to join Sakura’s class! While Rei appears to be the perfect gentleman at school, in truth he lives by the principle of "an eye for an eye" and is hired to target and dispose of criminals who have escaped the law. With everyone oblivious to his true nature, only Sakura knows what he really is and his remorseless feelings towards what he does. But despite his icy heart and his threat to burn Sakura and everyone around her should she reveal his secret, the righteous teen can’t help but feel that there’s more to Rei than meets the eye...
The main character in Darker Than Black is similar to the male protagonist in Code:Breaker as they both have mysterious pasts and strange abilities. They are both part of another organisation of ability users.
A wall dividing the utter hell from the normal. A wall that separates WORLDS!! That is what connects DTB and Returners. Everyone fears the wall and what lies beyond. Few have the nads to step near the wall. Most feel the spine tingle of the sight of it. Each protagonist has some sort of superhuman power to fight with. It's a battle of the beyond in both manga and a bloody one at that. If you liked one then the other will feel the same.
