    Rah! Rah! Durarara! - first three episodes
    This show has the potential to be a classic. But...

    It took them three loosely connected episodes to get to the point of the series, and this is a Winter series, so it's likely to only be 12 or 13 episodes long. So as fascinating as the storyline might be so far, my worry is whether they'll have enough episodes to tell all (or even most) of the story threads they've started. This could easily ...

  • Gangs, Madness, And Glorious Entertainment!
    Let me just start by saying: I love Izaya. Now, please be patient. I will explain why later.

    This series came exactly when I needed something slightly dark but entertaining. True, the plot is not absolutely amazing (but it's still good), the pacing is not great, and the plot twists are quite poor. Yet, this work is not about any of that, and you can tell that by the start. It's the characters ...

  • Amazing Anime! All the Different Characters Makes it Amazing!
    The very informative backstory from the very first few episodes negated the pacing of the story a little bit but without the explanation, the audience would probably be lost anyways. I really liked how they use a lot of the characters, in the first few episodes, to explain the backstory while implying character development at the same time. It's not only about the main characters but more about ...

  • One of the best shows I have seen.
    After watching great shows like Kill la Kill and Gurren Lagann, I thought it would be difficult to find a show that would fill the void. I loved this show. Thevepisodes flowed nicely and are filled with amazing and interesting characters. This show is extremely original and should be seen as one of the best.

  • A mysterious rider, strong man and three kids all jammed together.
    I kept thinking when I watched the opening that this resembled Baccano and it was indeed the same author. I liked all the elements of the show. I really had a hard time getting into the show at first because I am a bit of a snob when I start trying to watch a show.

    But it pieced together quite well. It's funny how small a world can be or how even looking into our own worlds, we all come ...

  • A Review of Durarara
    Durarara is truly an interesting piece of work. Similar to Baccano, Durarara doesn't follow the story of just one character, nor does it focus on any one of these characters for long periods of time. Set in the constantly active city of Ikebukoro, Durarara will keep you hooked with it's huge cast of characters, multiple plots, and supernatural elements.

    Setting
    Everything that ...

  • The plot and pacing of a novel with amazing animation.
    There's so many reviews, so I'll keep it short. Amazing characters, pacing, plot, and a great finish. The layering of intrigue and introductions is incredibly well done and it lasts just long enough to avoid overstaying its welcome. There's nothing quite like it; and who knew a Dallahan could be so charming?

  • Absolutly loved this anime!
    This was a mysterious anime with many plot twists. Each character has to go through many hardships and discovers something very surprising about each other. Izaya was a genius who played behind the scenes with each event that seems to occur, I loved his personality!

    Despite the fact that the three friends knew each others darkest secrets, they still desired to stay friends. It's a beautiful ...

  • One of my favorites!
    Durarara is one of those shows that can take a few episodes to get going but once it gets going it is simply amazing. The story is very very complex which can be a bit confusing at times but it comes together so beautifully so it's totally worth it. Each character in the show has their own unique story and develops each characters very well. The soundtrack is also top notch! I really recommend ...

  • Durarara is amazing!
    This anime is random and deep it gave me a feeling of excitement, delight and curiosity, at first it was a little chaotic and confusing, the characters were introduced way too fast I agree but each character having his own unique personality makes up for it, all the characters were connected in some weird epic way! It had a dark side to it, and unexpected plot twists, the comedy was simply ...
