Trivia

The Devil's Trill, episodes, 4, 5 and 6's title, is a real piece of classical music. The anime used 5 minutes, 38 seconds of the normally 14 minutes, 30 seconds Devil's Trill for the episodes. The best known work of Italian composer Giuseppe Tartini, the Devil's Trill is so called presumably because of a legend surrounding it. The legend has it that Tartini dreamed of the devil playing a violin. When Tartini woke up, he composed a violin sonata based on what the devil was playing in his dream. Another version of the legend has Tartini even making a contract with the devil for the violin sonata. The Devil's Trill is also so called presumably because of its defining, very difficult cadenza part, which consists of trills (a musical technique of rapid playing of the marked note and the note one step above) going for a lengthy period that the violinist plays on one string while he plays rapidly moving notes on another string.

Kazutaka Muraki: You think so? Humans are frighteningly weak beings. No matter what advances we make in science, humans cannot escape death or illness. I came to discover recently that even doctors have their limits. Doesn't that make you frustrated? Your perfect body will someday...
Kazutaka Muraki: You should be careful. You would not want to lose those precious to you.
Kazutaka Muraki: uzuki-san, please look only at me, and also, show yourself only to me. Let me be the only one to see you fall apart!

Those who live in darkness, wander aimlessly
3 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

Yoko Matsushita's wonderful, offbeat manga is turned into a short, but satisfying animated series. The premise is simple enough: In a bureaucratic underworld, a group of supernatural detectives called Shinigami make certain the dead get where they are supposed to go. These shinigami are themselves dead - having been granted the right to become shinigami due to their unsettled pasts. The series consists of four separate story arcs, in which seemingly mis-matched partners Asato Tsuzuki and Hisoka Kurosaki learn to rely on each other and battle the series' primary villain, the sadistic Dr. Muraki. The animation is quite good, very fluid. The character designs are true to the manga and are excellent. The Japanese voice actors are top-notch. It has been released in North America as Descendants of Darkness and is an enjoyable blend of supernatural action and drama with some comedic overtones to keep things from getting too heavy. If you are looking for anime that offers something outside of the norm, give this series a try. I only hope the producers decide to release a second series covering later books of the manga
