Sucky show is sucky.

I prefer Darker Than Black if only for more awesomeness per episode.

Darker than Black is indeed better.

Wow, I like DtB, but I'd hardly compare it to Monster.

Monsters pretty cool, even if it's the purest form of my own Trope, Random Japanese lead, Foreign land. Seriously, my animu is gonna be a western about some random Japanese dude as the lead for no reason what so ever.

Darker than Black is a typical show. Which is fine, except it took itself too seriously. Too much melodrama slammed into me in the first episode for me to care about the rest.

Monster also had grand ambitions, yet from the beginning, it focused on building characters and emotional reactions. It didn't cheapen itself with gratuitous flashiness.

I do love me some supernatural secret police and hot librarian commanders, though.

Sharp, why the f did you start this thread if you don't want anyone to, like, talk about it? Spoil it? You're too late on the boat.
