    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 ...

    A character-driven masterpiece
    I went into this anime not quite knowing what to expect. I tend toward watching shows with intense action and/or thrills, but there was something about Durarara's art style and description that drew me to it. I was not disappointed.

    Durarara centers on the intertwining lives of the countless residents of Tokyo's Ikebukuro neighborhood. We're first introduced to the city through the eyes of ...

    Action, Supernatural, Badass, Romance, School Life, Slice of Life, Comedy. Perfect
    Alright, so you're looking at the picture right. The art ain't looks kind of plane. You see just these random assortment of characters and you're like 'Is this really worth the time?'

    And YES IT IS.

    So watching the first few episodes you might be thinking 'Why is this so slow. Kill me now' BUT BE STRONG ANIME WATCHER.
    You will understand WHY it was so slow in the beginning. This anime is ...

    Rah rah, Ah ah ah, Durarara!
    I decided to give this anime a chance, and fell in love with it.

    First off, the storyline is jumbled mess in a good way. Each character, which have a story of their own, have a string that ties to every other character. You know how the reader/watcher always seem to know more than the characters? Well, that doesn't happen here, it seems the characters, especially Izaya, know a little ...

    IT HAS BLOODY EVERYTHING!
    Durarara has everything you can possibly imagine:
    Drama
    Comedy
    Romance
    Blood
    Action
    School Life
    Conspiracies
    The Supernatural
    Gang Wars
    Sociopaths
    and it's all wrapped up in a neat little ribbon.
    If you haven't watched it yet, just watch the first three epsidoes, if you are not hooked into the story by then you probably never will be. I say this because after the first episode I was ...

    "Ikebukuro's Finest."
    -- It all started with a bored teenager looking for an exciting life.
    He looked in the right place.

    Durarara!! begins in the entertainment district of Ikebukuro & the story revolves around each of the colorful characters inhabiting it & their histories intermingling with one another.

    Mikado Ryugamine, arrives from the countryside, tired of his typical life, to follow ...

    A-ma-zing story, characters, music, setting...!
    At first glance, the main characters might seem pretty typical - the ordinary transfer student, the loud and outgoing best friend, and the shy, quiet class prez. Not so once the story starts rolling. As soon as a Russian sushimaker, a (sexy) headless motorcycle rider, otakus, a vending-machine-throwing debt collector, and a psychotic, manipulative information broker join the mix, you know that ...

    My new favorite anime
    Brilliant. I stumbled on this anime not knowing what to expect. It's diverse, suspenseful and keeps me on my toes. There is constant twists and turns and surprises and it keeps me from getting bored. It's been awhile since I found an anime that truly keeps me on the edge of my seat. It's unique to the core.

    Is it worth watching?
    Yes.
    At a first glance, this show looks basic, and it picks up extremely slow.
    HOWEVER, this will easily become your favorite anime by the end. It was a thrilling plot and fantastic character development. I found myself clenching my jaws and laughing out loud. It is rare to see an anime get me this hyped up before. Simply writing this review is giving me trembling nostalgia.
