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.

Mixed Feelings
"Headless Horseman" wasn't as good as the commercials and numerous AMVs for its theme. If you ever want to watch it, it's probably easier to read Wikipedia and watch another clip.
This anime is about social interaction between different groups, including interest groups. There are some incredibly colorful characters here that are worthy of mentioning in their own right. What is only worth Shizuo Heiwajima: and his own philosophy, and his troubles, well, and comic scenes with his participation strongly motivate to tear through the grayness of the narrative.
The plot itself is very poor and often fits in a few words. People live, entertained ...

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 ...
