posted on by Andrew Osmond
Manga UK is streaming a 73-second dubbed trailer for Darker Than Black: Gemini of the Meteor (Darker Than Black: Ryūsei no Gemini), which is due to be released in the U.K. on a two-disc DVD on December 26. The series is the sequel to Tensai Okamura and Bones' Darker than BLACK science-fiction adventure series from 2007, which was released by Manga in 2009. The sequel continues the story two years later and follows the main characters Hiei and Yin on the run as they encounter a Russian-Japanese girl named Suō Pavlichenko.
Original character designer Yuji Iwahara, anime character designer and chief animation director Takahiro Komori, and most of the main staff return, although Yasushi Ishii (Hellsing) replaces Yoko Kanno as composer.
Manga Entertainment had previously announced in September that it would release the series on both DVD and Blu-ray. However, the company has since said on twitter that, "The Blu-ray is now in doubt... We will see how the DVD sells and then make a decision."
Update - Article amended to reflect the now "doubtful" status of the Blu-ray, as pointed out by the poster "Just Passing Through" in a comment on this story.
