In the flashy and restless streets of Tokyo's downtown Ikebukuro district, 15-year-old student Mikado Ryuugamine arrives wide-eyed and ready to inhale the exciting breath of city life. Up until now, his only insight into urban affairs was through an anonymous online group chat, where he found out about Ikebukuro's renowned legend. Known only as the "Black Rider," legend says it is a headless biker rumored to be just a shadow, executing its own justice against criminals.

But the district's quirks do not end there; Ikebukuro is swarming with so-called color gangs and their ceaseless conflicts. Among them, a colorless gang known as the Dollars is most noteworthy, as its founder, members, and numbers are all unknown. With odd cliques at every turn and uncanny tales coming to life, humans seem to mix with the supernatural, and Mikado soon dives into the deep sea of Ikebukuro's myths, deceits, and carefully planned out crises—a dangerous world, but possibly one where he belongs.

Here's the deal. The anime was before the manga so of course all the fans that watched the anime first where let down and very confused.

I read the manga first so to me it was very good because it draws you to the DRRR!! universe and it explains you some of the not very cleared things in the anime.

I think if you want to read the manga first go ahead, if you already watched the anime don't bother. you'll only get very confused or you'll get bored.

And if you haven't read the manga yet, since vol. 3 and 4 aren't translated yet, don't bother, watch ...

I'm not going to go into too much detail as the anime is one of my alltime-favorites and way more recommendable to spend time on than this manga. Really, whatever you think of Durarara!! after reading this (or planning to), watch the anime! You definitely won't regret it.

What's upsetting me the most is that the artstyle is just, whack. I think I'd only read it more than once because I basically love the characters a lot, but overall it isn't an enjoyable sight. The story portrayed in these 4 volumes is also rather... weak, to stay humble. It's almost as if you're already supposed to ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (11/22 eps)
For people who don't carefully look into the details that are laid out before you, this manga will be an utter annoyance for you. Some things (like the art) seem to be simpler, but details really are the key point in the manga. But there are many things this manga is lacking.

There are subtle clues as to what is going on in the plot and if you don't pay attention, you aren't going to get it until they really begin to explain whats going on. (Which they haven't really, they just elude to everything and seem to think [or hope] you'll get it.) The plot ...
