Bringing back this old thread from the dead. Obviously if you're clicking on this thread, you must have already watched both anime. If not, then here's a simple base line.
From the anime, "Darker Than Black", some people at random ages in the world are given an ability/power at a random time of their life. They then become almost emotionless & start searching for an answer for something (It's been a while since i rewatched it)..Anyways, after they use their power for a certain amount of times. They have a "price" they must pay..As in, you have to smoke some cigs, or tell the truth to everyone you talk to, or cut off a body part to gain back your powers/abilities. www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHJjr9HpIQw
Branches of Sin:
These people are in a death-roll prison & some crap goes down each week? i think. Where they're locked in an arena in a 1v1 prisoner fight. Sure enough, these prisoners have powers/abilities too. Their powers/abilities are all blood based. As in, scythe blades coming out of your arm, :| (this one is fucking weird to imagine) pulling out your earrings so blood flows out & you gain super strong tentacles on your hair, armor, i think there was even one associated with a cannon or a sword.www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=IX3lLzhJoNk
Well yea, there you have it. In a full fled fight of Contractors vs The Branches of Sin, which side do you think would win? Pictures & Videos are much appreciated.
