The Keiyakusha Conspiracy

Globalisation. Commercialization. Marketing. Advertising. This has nothing to do with the Syndicate or the Pandora. I am not talking about the Contractors and the Gate. I am talking about the significant presence of a certain organisation of the real world, not of which found in the fictional world created in Darker Than Black. I am referring on Pizza Hut and Nifty that made obvious appearance throughout the story. The conspiracy which I call as The Keiyakusha Conspiracy.Alright, enough with those gibberish and down to business. It sounds pretty nonsense because if Pizza Hut is actually sponsoring for the animation production, there is no wrong in their action to post their logo everywhere in the story. One thing for sure, Darker Than Black is “infested” with Nifty, an unknown organisation. We all know what is Pizza Hut but I am not certain about this “Nifty”. Nonetheless I have managed to record the existence throughout the story up to episode 10. Here are some visual evidences of this:

Darker Than BlackNifty and Pizza Hut are sighted together.

Darker Than BlackFirst appearance of Nifty in episode 1.

Darker Than BlackAll the Nifty inside the train.

Darker Than BlackThis one is in episode 3.

Darker Than BlackNifty is making a big show in episode 7 and 8.

Darker Than BlackNifty. Enough said.

Darker Than BlackPizza Hut had a humble start.

Darker Than BlackAnother Pizza Hut sighted in episode 9.Also making appearance is Aniplex but it is more of a cameo rather than an outstanding presence like Nifty and Pizza Hut. You might recall this from episode 10. I think I did mention this in my review. Anyway here’s the proof.

Darker Than BlackAniplex also does elevator maintenance?

    The Syndicate/New world order is the world’s most powerful governments + most powerful corporations (Pizzahut owned by Pepsi Cola, Coca, Cola, etc)

    This is a super late comment, but I’m just watching this series for the first time. I’m watching it on my laptop via Netflix and I thought I was going crazy for seeing a quick flash on what originally read PIZZA SLICE. I had to rewind it 3 time and pause it just right to uncover PIZZA HUT. I would haven’t thought anything of it. Advertising in movies is a norm. Growing up watching my favorite turtles on the big screen I became fascinated on what *coughdominoscough* was. Anyway… I just find it creepy that it was just a split second. Is that all they need to brainwash children? I’ll stick to non-chain family owned pizza thank you!
