In Tokyo's downtown district of Ikebukuro, amidst many strange rumors and warnings of anonymous gangs and dangerous occupants, one urban legend stands out above the rest—the existence of a headless "Black Rider" who is said to be seen driving a jet-black motorcycle through the city streets.

Mikado Ryuugamine has always longed for the excitement of the city life, and an invitation from a childhood friend convinces him to move to Tokyo. Witnessing the Black Rider on his first day in the city, his wishes already seem to have been granted. But as supernatural events begin to occur, ordinary citizens like himself, along with Ikebukuro's most colorful inhabitants, are mixed up in the commotion breaking out in their city.

Durarara eu vejo como um anime de cotidiano onde as coisas vao acontecendo lentamente e as vezes natural, com alguns plot twists bons pra historia, virou uma das minhas historias favoritas por ter otimos personagens como Simon,Izaya, Shizuo, o medico e a duhalan, uma historia q foge dos padroes dos animes e uma das melhores do genero, com um estilo de arte peculiar e bem trabalhada.

A longo prazo nao seria bom mas uma historia fechada com 60 episodios deste universo ta de bom tamanho, tambem o publico precisa ser um pouco maduro para entender ja que nem tudo vem mastigado e tem detalhes que fazem ...

Despite being a far cry from other more notable Takahiro Omori titles (Baccano!, Haibane Renmei, Hell Girl, Natsume's Book of Friends, Hotarubi no Mori e), more than a decade since it's release Durarara!! continues to be a part of the zeitgeist.

1) It's aura of mystique - it oozes of rich lore of urban legends saturating the streets of Ikebukuro
2) It's mesmerizing score - an absolute vibe

These components alone are reason enough to sit through 24 episodes meandering through ...

A little bit of a series retrospective here. I haven't seen Durarara since it came out and would never rewatch it. In my mind, it is one of the original massively overrated series of my childhood, with baffling storytelling and focus problems that ruin everything good about it.

Let me start with an analogy: imagine JK Rowling creates the world of Harry Potter, filled with wizards, magic, lore, history, a haunted castle, centaurs, giant spiders, elves, soul-stealing dark phantoms, dragons, etc. But as she's writing it she decides, "no Harry Potter is too much a chosen one type and involved with interesting people, secrets, and ...
