Story

Good, but not focused enough. It kind of meanders around the main point for a long time. You want to find out more about the characters and don't until very near the end, which I suppose make you watch it so credit has to be given

 

Animation

Good, but nearly too cheery for some of the subject matter. The characters are all designed very well. As a personal preference I would have liked Darker than Black to use more black. It is not a cheery anime and yet the colours are quite vivid.

 

Sound

The voices are well cast and are performed well. I would recommend the dub for this anime as, unless you are fluent in japanese, you will have to be quite a fast reader to keep up with some of the dialogue. The music sets the tone and mode with ease without becoming a distraction, not surprising considering who was involved in making it.

 

Characters

Some developed well, others waited too long. However, as has already been mentioned, this makes you watch it. Perhaps a coup;e more characters could have been fleshed out sooner

 

Overall

Good but could have been great

7/10 story
