Well I happened to notice that nobody had bothered to write a review for the Durarara!! (the exclamation marks are very important) light novels before now, which I found quite surprising given the popularity of the anime adaptation, but anyhow I’ve taken it upon myself and I apologise in advance for the lousy job that I do but still nevertheless this will end up as the most helpful review, well for the time being at least.

Manga: Baccano!
Both Baccano! and Durarara!! are written by similar author, Narita Ryohgo and have similar twisted of time-lines.

Manga: Yozakura Quartet
Modern urban fantasy with a delicious blend of comedy and drama, and a great ensemble cast. Yozakura Quartet has a lot more supernatural beings, most of whom are youkai, but there are some prominent supernatural aspects (namely Celty) evident in Durarara!! too. And if the artwork looks familiar, there's a good reason. YZ's mangaka did the artwork for the Durarara!! novels and the anime character design.
