With both Durarara!! and Boogiepop Phantom you get a sense of the dark supernatural underside of the city, as evidenced by certain characters (Boogiepop, Celty).
Both shows are about some sort of urban legend and have a lot of characters. Normally it`s characters have a very small chance to meet each other, but all of them take part in a complicated and intricate story.
Both feature nonlinear storytelling, with events depicted multiple times, from different characters' points of view (something shown briefly, or even in the background, of one episode may be the main focus of a later episode). Both deal with urban legends and supernatural creatures, as well as scientists with ambiguous intentions/ethics. Both shows target a relatively mature, intelligent audience. While Durarara raises questions of identity and the nature of human relationships, Boogiepop is notably darker (literally and in tone) and deals heavily with issues of memory, maturity, identity, and change.
