The love I have for this show is infinite.

It, and everybody in it, everybody who made it, everybody who watch it, and everybody who have heard of it, I love them all.

I think it's Kadota the leader.....right? I would much rather like it more if it were Izaya.

Actually, I don't think it falls in the "suspense" and "slice of life" genre.

God I fucking love this show. I don't usually rate anime on the first few episodes but man I'm gonna have to put this at a 9 for now. It has a high chance of becoming the next 10 on my list.
^This. However, if the director made this before Baccano I would give this a 10.

Honestly, five episodes in and I already think it's surpassed Baccano

Ah, so she was a bro-con. I had a feeling but wasn't 100% sure.

-There's something to be said for quality anime. It's been a while since when an episode ends, I'm so annoyed because I have to wait a week for the next one but if I wait to marathon it, the suspense will kill me. I can't believe how much I enjoy everything about this show. Two episode ago, we were dealing with a headless faerie and a doctor with a headless fetish getting character development. Then we had a typical school episode that turned out not to be typical school episode. Now we have an episode about, normally, would be the minor of the minor characters (though given that they're "Dollars" they'll probably be important). Nothing less from Baccano's author anyway.

-So we've met everybody in the OP that was named right? Except for the dude with the dreads and hangs out with Shizuo.

-I got a good laugh at the "torture scene" and them using Dokuro-chan and Ladies versus Butlers. (Was that a plug? That show is still airing)

-Next week....SHIZUO EPISODE!

*sigh*Are you even watching shows like Baccano?Basically this show is about multiple story tied together in strings of event.Sad for you who cannot enjoy it because this show is unique,not your typical anime plot.If you aware this episode reveal the Dollars,they are key part of the story.I knew the Dollars will have some connection with all the said character in the show.

Is a purpose really necessary?
My favorite animes are the completely pointless ones.

But if you really want to simplify things up, I'll give you a purpose: find Celty's head. Shinra is the bad guy since he doesn't want it to be found.

Technically speaking but that's like saying Darker than Black is a comedy and slice of life.

Ok, I love the torture based on light novels, that was epic. However, can someone tell me what all 5 are (I know Bokusatsu and Ladies v Butlers, and I think the last one is To Aru Majutsu no Index, but I'm not sure). If someone could tell me that'd be great.

I don't know for you people, but a creature that hasn't a head can watch TV and Hear people speaking is definitely weird (and why does she need a head since she is able to do anything like a normal headful human even riding a bike)... I mean there are limits for some one's imagination ... Well I won't really call this person an imaginative one since this Person is insane ^___^

Yeah ... Maybe you don't agree with me and yes when I am watching an anime I do want to know what its purpose is otherwise it won't be FUN at all ...

I am really disapointed in that anime, I really thought it will be something since all the great seiyuu were brought to do the voices ... Well, I guess I was too sure of myself *cries*

And by the way ... KIDA, screw you .... >.< I really hate this character and for the very first time in my life I am hating Mamoru miyano for doing his voice, it completely destroyed the image I had of him ... *sob*

Probably is Index as that was in the manga.I can't tell the others though.

You clearly haven't been paying attention to Celty's episode. She is a supernatural being, a dullahan, so clearly she has abilities that far exceeds a normal human's expectations. There is a purpose to all that has been revealed so far. It obviously connects together into one overarching grand scheme that surrounds the Ikebukuro area. If you can't see it, then you simply don't understand what the anime is about.

I always wonder when this conversation comes up. Sometimes, I'll say "None of this makes any sense" (I'll use Phantom as an example since it's the first one that came to mind), and I'll list many inconsistencies and ambiguities that were passed off as an explanation. More often than not, the first reply I'll get is "Why do you have to be spoon-fed everything. This is for adults who can think for themselves." Really though, that's just a bad excuse for a poorly focused story, and despite attempts to rationalize the plot, nothing happens.

Then we have cases like this and Eden of the East, where I see what's going on, realize that there is a distinct lack of information for the sake of mystery (not ambiguity, this is very different), and someone comments how nothing makes sense. What is seemingly different, is that more people in this case like to say "I don't like my shows to make sense, that's was so fun." When really, that's not what the person was asking for.

So, motoko, as was mentioned in Kida's monolgue at the end of last week's episode, the purpose of this show is to come to understand how everyone is connected. We got flashes of this by knowing how the structure of the Dollars works, seeing how the stalker boy is related to the doctor performing human experiments who in turn elicits the help of the lame kidnappers who were hired by Izaya to kidnap the girl in the second episode. We also are given hints that Kida was in some gang (color or Dollars, we're not sure yet) before Mikado comes into town sniffing around about everything.

Lots of connections were made in this episode. It's understandable that it was overwhelming, because I didn't really notice until right before they did the flashback to Celty saving the girl from the second episode. It's there though, and because of that, I feel like this is the cleverest show of the season, and I hope it doesn't disappoint.

No ... Seriously I know that she is a dullahan-thing ... It is just I can't eccept this idea, that's all, and since I am the only one disliking this series, I'll try and reconsider ...

I think you are kind of wasting your time here because this individual doesn't have a problem with just the mystery of the show but with the fantastic elements. Elements like that, ether you accept them or you don't. If you can't accept them you won't enjoy the show and just complain about the lack of realism.
It's kind of stupid if you ask me because is like watching Evangelion and instead of analyzing the scenario you can't get your head around on how can creatures like Angels and Eva's exist. If that's the way you are watching then don't watch the bloody thing and go find a reality show on TV, not an anime.

I think no matter how you try you won't see what the rest of us find enjoyable because your personality obviously doesn't allow you to understand the style. Is something similar on putting some beer loving guy from Texas that loves westerns in frond of the screen to watch Ghost in the Shell. He want get it. His just gonna wonder what is this shit with human that aren't humans, strange little robots on wheels that talk and people speaking about strange computer and political boring staff. OH! fuck it let's put John Wayne back and see some shooting. It just isn't his style.

I find it strange that you can't accept a headless woman on a motorcycle but can accept a guy who used a notebook to kill countless people by writing their name in it. =3=

He wasn't comparing anime, he was comparing just the unrealistic perspective of a woman with out a head and a notebook that can kill.

the supernatural element is my least favorite part - the rest of the story almost seems too good for it ...that being said, don't you think its more interesting if they push some limits? i mean, why bother with a predictable story?

Probably,but since Dotachin is quite informative about the Dollars based on his narration,I may think he tell half the information regarding Dollars to Kida without revealing who are the actual members.

Great episode. Loved the whole thing. Lol'ed @ the password.

And yes, after just now reading how the torturing went down in the manga, I wish they would have stuck to it. That was funny.

so thats who the dollars really are! and it looks like the whereabouts of selty's head is revealed, but why they need humans for experiments confounds me?
the only way to stop a gamer from playing is either: beat them, or wait until they get bored (though 2% percent suffer seizures

Isn't that human trafficking?
But I dunno. I believe that this has to do with Celty's head.

It's possible that the girl with the scar on her neck was a result of one of these experiments -- maybe it was done so for Seiji's sake. I think that Seiji knows about his sister's research or whatever that is, because come on, you don't just ignore your girlfriend's scar.

Anyway, although I was pretty disappointed with the torture scene, I liked this episode. Shizuo throwing a poor elephant slide at Izaya was awesome. xD Maybe I should have watched the anime over reading manga... but then again, curiosity gets the better of me. TuT

It's become impossible to follow the thread of an ongoing series, due to both fanboyism and OH MY GOD WALLS OF TEXT.

Hahaha, this is another big puzzle of the whole picture called durarara.

My guess was exactly right, those quadruple gang was dollars. Izaya is definitely involved in dollars too, might be a leader of whole thing. Celty is also part of dollars I guess.

Human experiment? Damn, I got a bad feeling about this. I can't wait for the next episode. (*apparantly, it will be about our shinzou-chan <3)
