There's a little joke in the scheduling of Durarara!! schemer Izaya Orihara's birthday. It's on May 4th, while his voice actor Hiroshi Kamiya's birthday is on January 28th. Izaya's nemesis Shizuo Heiwajima's birthday is January 28th while his voice actor Ono Daisuke's birthday is May 4th.
Calebrating Izaya's big day online, a special limited wallpaper was posted on the new anime's site at http://www.durarara.com/special/birthday.html
There's also a Twitter campaign to win a birthday card signed by director Takahiro Omori http://www.durarara.com/special/present01.html
And, a special birthday event/exhibition was held at Animate Ikebukuro this weekend.
A gift set with post cards, mini-plate, butter knife and bromides sold for 3,000yen
