Darker Than Black: The Final Conflict

Currently Finished: Episode 24

After 11 segments, 5 long monthes, the final conflict is here. The plot layout is definately one of the best I've seen. It never lost its 2 episode segment style until this final conflict. Each segment, by itself may not have much significant meaning. But when you put them together, the big picture is so much more then the sum of the all. I love it.

I have to say, Darker than Black is by far the best anime of 2007. From what I've heard about the October season, I don't think anything else would be able to beat it. The outcome of the last episode only have limited choices by now. Either one would be a great finish. If they manage to put out something completely unexpected, that's even better. Therefore, I'm going to just go ahead and award Darker than Black with:

Richard's Pick: Best Drama of 2007

Richard's rating: 4.9 out of 5 (net gain: 0.4)
The only reason it didn't earn a perfect score is I think it had dragged a little bit in the middle of the series.
