Finally the final episode of Death Note. Review coming up soon and this follows by with Devil May Cry. Hands tied up, better start typing now.
As more mysteries of the Gate and about the Contractors (also Hei’s past) about to be raveled, hopefully this would make up a great episode. I am impressed of the development of the story as the writers initiated character building and more storytelling about the mysteries revolve in this anime. This time PANDORA or
Physicalqantity Physicalquantity Alternation Natural Deconstruction Organized Research Agency was in focus and sure enough, the episode this time is very promising. So this time the review would be a little too long. Possibly that I am all pumped up for the review of the final episode of Death Note. Yes, it’s the finale already and with heavy hearts, I will review it. But first, I need to settle on Darker Than Black.
Hei meets Corinna. Wait, I thought Hei likes lolis.
Hei was sitting inside the bus when a girl sitting next to him asked him if he believes in an urban legend about a person can retrieve what was lost inside the Gate, which comes with a great price. She wondered what would that price be. And I am not talking in terms of financial currency here. Hei’s silent response gave her the idea that he did not actually believes in it and she admitted that she did not believe it as well.

It was revealed that Hei was assigned to infiltrate this research centre. Mao called out the dangers of the task as the PANDORA is situated next to the Hell’s Gate and that contractors can lose control of themselves. Adding that Hei won’t be able to pass the initial security checks, Mao thought that it is an impossible task to perform. Yet the Syndicate was dead serious about it and wanted Hei to do a retrieval job inside the PANDORA centre. It was known that an explosion occurred inside the facility where two security guards were killed. The PANDORA blamed the accident to faulty wiring. However a CIA agent uncovered that the explosion was intentional rather than accidental so that a gate-extracted substance known as “meteor fragment” can be obtained. Knowing that the meteor fragment is still inside the PANDORA centre, the Syndicate wanted to have their hands on it. In order for Hei to accomplish this mission, Huang provided Hei a transparent film strip.
