The Darker Than BLACK: Ryuusei no Gemini OST is out!

Oh yeah, definitely getting vibes of Hellsing there, especially with some tunes. The soft piano piece from episode... 4? is gorgeous, the soft and mournful voice of the singer gives me chills every time. Overall the soundtrack is pretty good, even though I think it stands better on its own and was maybe a bit too flamboyant for the anime. But that could be because I was so used to Yoko Kanno's subtlety and recurring motifs. I kinda missed her music.

I'm a bit disappointed that the new tracks from the very last episode didn't make it, though. Those were really good, it's such a shame not to have them on the OST...

I still haven't forgiven the anime for the mess it made of the ending, by the way. I don't care if the upcoming OVAs are supposed to clear things out, because this just reeks of marketing ploy and you should never have to buy extras in order to understand the plot of the main story. Too many deus ex machinas, too many things left open to interpretation... To me, it was just lazy. But then again, YMMV.
