Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Shapeshifting, Body Control, Hair Manipulation, Flight, Wormhole creation, energy-based weapons, mental attack resistance, and Matter Manipulation (Via transferring her Transform Ability into matter; created several clones of Rito made of water and a big golem of rock)
Transformation Ability: Golden Darkness' signature ability is her transformation ability, otherwise known as the Trans-ability. This ability allows her to turn almost any part of her body into nearly any animate objects (preferably weapons or tools used for combat) or reshape the size and figure of her body. The nanomachines that circulate through her body allow her to do this. A downside to her powers is that if she uses her power excessively, the nanomachines in her body overheat, leaving her extremely weak and unable to move and causing her to pass out.
Yami considers her power to be a "cursed power" and that it can only be used for hurting people, however, she is truly able to use her capabilities for harmless and trivial purposes with safe precision, such as cutting up Lala's tofu or doing maid work at Saki Tenjouin's mansion.
Weapon Transformation: This ability gives her the power to change any parts of her body into weapons like her hands turning into blades, claws or massive mechanical gauntlets. Yami mostly uses this ability to create weapons from her hair. She has also been shown to develop non-weapon objects such a frying pan or even some medical equipment but is still useful against opponents.
Hair Manipulation: Yami's most notable ability is her control over her hair. She can control its movements, extend its reach, and uses it to create giant fists and dragon heads. She can even solidify her hair to form metallic objects like sword blades, metal teeth, battle axe, spiked maces, drills, hammer, wrecking balls, etc. Even a giant shoe that's similar to the ones she wears.
Body Transformation: Yami can change her bodies size and measurements to look more mature and adult-like.
Partial Animal Transformation: She is also able to change parts of her body into animal-like features that give her extra capabilities, growing a pair of white-feathered wings (black while in her Darkness Form) from her back similar to an angel, to enable her fight. She can also turn her legs into a fishtail similar to a mermaid with gills that lets her breath and swim better underwater.
Attire Transmogrification: On her "date" with Rito, Yami used her abilities to change her black Gothic outfit into a cute dress, but she said that she couldn't hold it for very long.
Darkness Transformation: Following Tearju's expulsion from Eden, the scientists affiliated with the group implanted a program called "Darkness" into Yami. Nemesis has stated that this form is a grand weapon of destruction that can destroy the whole universe. Tearju also feared her dangerous potential after Rito and Momo mentioned it to her during the Festival (Darkness Chapter 24). Because the scientists ultimately hated the fact that the universe was heading towards peace, they designed "Darkness" to activate when Yami felt a sense of peace in her heart. The Transformation starts with Yami losing control over her transform ability, in which it started molesting her with her hair. After a while, she is then cocooned by her hair and emerges in a transformed state. In this form, all of Yami's previous abilities are enhanced as well as gaining new ones:
Limitless Transform Ability: According to Nemesis, the Darkness form is what happens when Transform runs amok and removes all of its limits, which she referred to as the Limitless Transform Ability. This ultimately turns Yami from an Anti-personnel weapon into an Anti-planetary weapon.
Wormholes: Yami can create wormholes with the use of her hair and teleport anything or anyone anywhere, even herself. Tearju describes it as applying her Transform Abilities on space to displace it.
Matter Manipulation: Yami is now able to freely control physical matter itself by transferring her Transform Ability into the said matter. She has been shown being able to control water and solidify it, creating huge hands and is also able to stand on it. She can also control solid material like creating a wormhole in the ground shaped like a mouth with sharp teeth, and creating and controlling a giant earth statue shaped like Rito.
Energy based Weapons: Yami can now construct weapons made out of energy.
Planet Slicer: Yami makes a giant blade of light that is capable of slicing Planet Kild and had the raw power to destroy 2 to 3 planets even when holding back. She used it against Lala and then Black when clashing with his Railgun.

Nana and Momo comment that if Mea tried to psycho dive into Yami mind there was a chance she would be a risk of darkness program invading her mind. Mea said that planet slicer attack of Yami had enough power to destroy 2 or 3 planets and even after using said attack she has plenty of energy to spare. Yami also easily defeats her sister Mea and dodges attacks from Nana and Momo one of which used a creature that shoots lightning.
These scans show Yami has full control over her darkness form and Yami fights Black and wins with no wounds even after their two strongest attacks clash. Also shows she used more energy in this planet slicer attack than the one she used against Lala that could destroy 2 or 3 planets.
Dream: Spice and Wolf's the next title I'm rewatching. Stay tuned.

Taka: My favorite episode in Samurai Champloo was probably Ep 22.
Feb 3, 2020 5:22:08 GMT
Dream: The one with zombies excavating for treasure? Think that one's the most out there of episodes in the series. Mine's probably the one involving Mugen busting a counterfeit coin ring while trying to get nookie from a ninja girl disguised as a prostitute.

Master Menos: Updates complete. As for a life update, I'm quitting my fast food job soon. Was good for my very first job, but things are getting FAR too chaotic for my tastes.
Feb 6, 2020 22:06:13 GMT
Dream: Far as job front goes on my end, still waiting on projects to start up with my freelance job. Beyond that, nothing new for other work in my search.
Feb 6, 2020 22:42:02 GMT
Dream: Just completed Spice and Wolf. Plan to work on a review for it sometime tomorrow. Too late to have any inhibition to get one done from my end.
Feb 7, 2020 3:17:29 GMT
Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.
Feb 7, 2020 5:19:21 GMT
Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.
Feb 9, 2020 3:24:18 GMT
Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.
Feb 11, 2020 2:11:38 GMT
Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!
Feb 11, 2020 6:31:08 GMT
Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)
Feb 15, 2020 4:17:13 GMT
Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
