A mature yet entertaining (and dark ) anime about people called "Contractors" that have to perform obsessive compulsive "payment" in order to use their super powers. It's set in an alternate universe where there are 2 places called "hells gate" and "heavens gate" which are supposedly the source of where the contractors come from and hold supernatural qualities. "Contractors" are people, hidden from the general public and considered highly dangerous to the government and "not human"(not displaying much human emotion and relying on logical thought) . While a small number of these contractors work for the government, most form underground society's or groups that work (or dispute) against each other. Also working with these contractors are Emotionless locators called "Dolls" that use certain elements as mediums to locate people or contractors.
The main character, Hei, is a contractor known as the Black Reaper. Although meddling in more trouble than most contractors could handle, is considered the most dangerous while only using his contracted powers for self defense and against mobsters and actual criminals. Though we do not know very much about the mysterious Hei, we do know that his sister, Bai, disappeared along with heavens gate several years ago. More episodes to come for this Epic anime...
