A triangle chessboard representing the 3 leaders.
3 different chess pieces, shogi, white, black and ryuugime, anri, kida, respectively.
Ah this show's cleverness and the way they relate everything and tieing it up into a nice bow, never seizes to amaze me.

Good episode, I just can't get enough of Izaya's trickery.

And hopefully Mikado will actually start using the Dollars actively now. He's been moping around too much in the last couple of episodes.

Btw, does anyone happen to have more pics of this girl?

I thought Kida who was hurt at the preview oh I guess it's Shizu-chan^^
Anyways nice episode. Anri is really being useful but Mikado is..*sigh* I really want to see Kida's reaction when he see's Anri. But he saves Anri though in the preview:D

and I hate cliffhangers!!

PS: Kinda like the part where Seiji's talks to Mikado^_^

I'm actually dissapointed that this serise finishes in three episodes.:(
Production could cover all the night novels, then, they'll have plenty of time to cover anything else that goes on in the current manga.
What a waste!!!

I'm sorry, but I can't take Kida seriously as a leader.:P

Yay!!! Shizuo returns (short but sweet), yet I hope he wasn't injured at the end!:o
One of the petty gang members made me laugh; "You don't mess with Shizuo or the black dude at Russian Sushi".

Anri taking out the yellow scalves was genious; why recruit your own army when you can influence an inside job.
I'd love to have her power.

Seiji still with the stalker girl, carrying on their fake romance; she seems happy, yet he'll smash her head in again if he catches a glimps at Selty's head.
Stalker (forgot her name) is suppose to be Anri's friend, she's quite selfish.

Knockers.:D

This episode was so awesome.

I'm just hopeing they do more with Mikado then the nothing as of late. I loved how Anri used he powers to control the yellow scarves to try and stop things. Izaya was of course awesome as always, I loved the phone call to make sure the chess pieces were always being moved.

And Mikado saying knockers made me laugh pretty hard at the end.

Never thought Seiji would come out of any episode looking the best, but he did here. His words were beautiful, powerful and exactly what Mikado needed to hear at that moment.

All of the other characters ended up aggravating me to varying degrees with Mikado's cowardice at the top of the list. However, it is worth stating that Mikado has built something impressive in Dollars - especially when contrasted with the Yellow Scarves which is quickly being consumed by its ill intentioned and violent minority.

Izaya's so evil. Hope he pays in full for the "entertainment" he's created for himself.

It's Anri or Celty or Kida who has to do something since they know the most info.

Well Anri is trying (would be better if she would go head on to Kida and tell him it was all a HUGE misunderstanding...but wheres the fun in that X=), Celty can't really do much since its between Mikado, Anri And Kida (Love triangle =0).
And Kida, even if he tries to keep YS at bay, they don't care, they just want their city back by any means possible =/.

The next episode looks to disagree with you. Mikado looking pretty serious there and has made his decision after Seiji's talk. He may not have all the info but he's going to do what he can.

I mostly agree with you, but calling him a coward is a bit much. He's very difficult situation especially compared to the Yagiri stuff. He doesn't want an unnecessary conflict and without Kida for support he's having a tough time. He's come out of his funk by the end of the episode.

~I thought Anri=Saika ,even if Anri telepathically send message from herself to the children and to the dollar network.But still Anri =Saika...but anyway,I saw Anri playing with her phone,so I guess she gain excess in to dollar network using the hand phone.
~Well anyway ,I did put "Anri" instead of directly Anri.I think you can guess is the Kirisakima(children).Mikado did ask Izaya about "Anri".It is true that Mikado ask Izaya about yellow scarf,but Mikado ask him because Mikado think that the misunderstanding between dollar and yellow scarf are created from Kirisakima.I get this from episode 19......

The information war is all done in the dollar network


Yes, Anri is Saika in the chatroom.

And it isn't necessarily "unnecessary" information Izaya is spreading since he's obviously manipulating the three sides.

For my opinion,War itself is unnecessary in this world =P
Spreading unnecessary information to created innocent bloodshed is just unnecessary.
Since this is just Anime,I think I just take it as entertainment.
Ohh...in this arc.I think Izaya only manipulate the 2 side(Anri and Mikado),but it strongly effect yellow scarf(Kida)

When I saw Shinra's mug. lol
And when Mikado passed those three people who in a way, resembled himself, Kida, and Anri...I chuckled at that too. lol

I really, really, really wish that Mikado had done something, but since it helps lead us into the next episode thinking that he'll do something...I hope his move is good.

At the very end, I couldn't tell if they were taking Anri away or if she had them all entranced like everyone else. Her eyes weren't glowing red, but she was just walking with them. Whatever the case be, this is getting interesting. I'm excited to see how this ends!

Agreed.

Good episode, a bit slow except for Kida finding out about Anri. Mikado better do something, soon.
And, uhm, did I see at the end of next weeks preview a man who looked like Shizuo laying on the floor... if that is Shizuo, I'll have to shoot myself.

Izaya is only instigating war for his own personal amusement. And he is messing with all three sides. He's the one who told Kida about Mikado being the Dollars leader after all.

So Kida finally demonstrates some of his strength, I was starting to think he was all talk lol
And I thought it was funny how both Kida and Mikado were certain the girl described was Anri after it was mentioned that she had big breasts :3

With only 3 episodes left, I hope they are able to decently wrap up the story by then. Though leaving it open for a sequel would be pretty nice.

I just want Mikado to find his balls and start ordering the Dollars around. He's got an army the size of a city (literally). Use it!

I think that it must be fundamentally wrong for me to love Izaya as much as I do. The more evil and manipulative he gets, the more awesome he is. Don't get me wrong, I love Shizuo too, but man. Izaya kicks everyone's ass.

I'm sad that it's ending soon! Hurry up and order another 24 episodes!

I remember when this series first started, I thought it was interesting how Anri had these huge boobs, but little to no attention was ever drawn to them. Fast forward to now when they've become her calling card of sorts (well there is the whole Saika thing, but that's a little easier to hide).
Ha-cha!

If he die, I will die, too x___x

Kida surely acts like a leader, but rest of Yellow Scarves makes me really angry, stupid bastards.
And Mikado, who doesn't do anything...

Btw. Izaya is really mental XD I love him.
And Shinra's mug, haha.

I want to see Celty chase after her head some more.
I think this part is forgotten but maybe this(her head) will be brought up later. I have faith in the way the story is told.

Damn, Izaya just amuses me to no end. "Kyaho!! Kanra-chan deeesu..........Pum pum!.......Baybay bee!!" XD. And him observing things far away is so evil but I can't seem to hate him :3 I guess we were wrong about the representation of the pieces of the game board Izaya is playing but it's very interesting.

The weird couple....is still weird. Seiji looked like a zombie when Harima was talking to Mikado until he spoke which was kinda cool. But they're still weird...

Well, that's...one way to identify Anri. Raira uniform, glasses....big breasts XD. Is there no one else with that profile in their school? Guess not.
I like it that she is using the Slasher network but it's doing more harm than good from the looks of things.

Kida and Mikado are just being pussies in this episode, most especially Mikado. I though Mikado would man up at the last part but it looks like it's next episode.

The tension is really building up in this show. Preview looks awesome!! Damn, 3 more episodes. Hope this ends in an awesome way. I want the next episode now!

Question:
Do the voices in the Dollars chat matter?
For your information,
I know in the 4 way chat between Kanra, Setton, Saika, and Tanaka Taro, each corresponding charcater voices its screen name.(ex: Celty's voice would speak for Setton's posts)
Long before when we did NOT know who the people behind the chat names were, random voices were put in. (For example, back then Setton had various male voices)

Now I KNOW I heard Fukuyama Jun (voice for Shinra) at chat log for 17:12 and a few others.

Anyone know what his screen name says?
Now, I've noticed that it's consistent. By that, I mean that FukuJun voices the same screen name (could someone figure it out please? XD)

I also heard Kadota (I forget his v.a. name. It's the same guy that does Okazaki Tomoya from Clannad) for the screen name 'Monta'.

Anyone remember from that episode where Kadota got invited to join Dollars? Was his screen name Monta that time too?

THE POINT OF ALL THIS is that now the voices are consistent each screen name in the Dollar chat. So, most likely, corresponding characters voice the screen names. In which case, we should be able to figure out which character has which screen name in the Dollars chat, and what kind of attitudes each character holds. (or in Izaya's case, manipulates)

It was just last episode.
In fact it's part of the last week's screencaps in this week's OP sequence. Hope that doesn't sound confusing. Basically, I mean, watch the OP sequence in ep 21.

I love the way everyone knew Izaya was an asshole from the beginning but loved him for it until the full extent of his assholery was revealed and since then everything he does is HATE HATE HATE.

I still adore him. He absolutely made this episode for me, tbh.
At "Kyaho! Kanra-chan deeeeeesu!", I died a little.<3

That and Shinra's mug, and the word "knockers".

Still loved it. Can't believe it's ending soon...

Mikado continues to be absolutely useless and they keep dilly-dallying with not much ever happening.

I hope the big conflict that it's been building up for the past 5-6 episodes is actually worth it.

I think it's pretty pointless to tell a character that is clearly used to pacifism to grow a pair. It's not within Mikado's characteristics. (Not now anyway.) He created Dollars as somewhat of a joke and to break free from the mundane reality he was living in. So it's only natural that he's completely baffled that this has turned into a situation out of his control, and especially one that became quite too serious for his relaxed fantasy. You gotta remember, he's kept himself isolated since he was a kid and so his perspective of reality is warped in such a way that he doesn't admit to the bad. (For example, how he confronted Namie that she should turn herself in, thinking the situation should be that simple.)

But I won't deny that Mikado has the potential for a much more...serious personality. He came up with the Dollars meeting idea, after all, and reading the novel, it's this and several other conflicts he's pitted in that eventually allows him to grow the pair you all wish he would've grown already.
