At the invitation of an old school friend, introverted high-school student Mikado Ryuugamine, yearning for a life less ordinary, makes his way to Tokyo. His destination: Ikebukuro, a hotbed of madmen living most unusual lives. On his first day there, Mikado encounters a cast of characters so colorful, the rich hues of his rural hometown pale in comparison! And as if the naive stalker chick, the high school senior obsessed with the rather creepy object of his affections, the hikikomori genius doctor, the hedonistic information dealer, the strongest man in all of Ikebukuro weren't enough…Mikado also chances upon a sight that leaves him rubbing his eyes and scratching his head—the Black Biker, who is black as night from bodysuit to license plate, soundlessly weaving through the streets like a figure out of an urban legend. Who is this "Headless Rider" on the jet-black metal steed!? And why does it seem like Mikado's already gotten himself neck-deep in the insanity that is the norm in his new home!?

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 read more

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 read more

tbh I didn't know the anime came first until reading the other reviews

Secondly, I'm not sure why everyone was so confused by it. There were a handful of lines that seemed translated poorly that didn't take away too much from what all was happening.

That being said, having not seen the anime I will judge it on its own and not for how it measures up to the anime. The world of Ikeburo Tokyo is an exciting one with gangs and key players to look out for, your perspective is that of someone who is also new to these things so everything is thoroughly explained to read more

haaa.... since there were only negative reviews, I'll try to show you all the positive part of this manga.

I admit, it really IS a little confusing.
The first chapters suddenly throw you into the story, while the whole plot, involving (almost) every charcter, is partially shown to you.
The art too, isn't what i would call outstanding, it looks better in the Anime...

If you read all the currently available chapters and you stlii haven't understood it yet, i recommend to watch the anime.
That's what i have done (from the beginning) and i must say that the story has a lot of twists and is a little read more
