this will be a SPOILER so BEWARE don't hate!


anyway in vol 6 in the lightnovels, mikado apparently has a very cold side to him. Not the cautious, shy mikaido we know!


So what do you guys think? do you think he is hiding his real nature? But for what reason?
Posted 3/13/10
To start life anew?
He moved to Ikebukuro.
I remember that one episode where Simon is narrating and speaking of "foreigners" that come to Ikebukuro in search of their desires.
Mikado's could possibly be to start a new life in an interesting way.

I swear, at the end of episode 10 I had thought that Mikado was possessed or something

Didn't he say that he wanted to live a different life? It seems like he was a little bored and wanted to do something interesting.

I kinda like the new Mikado. Shy and cautious can be a little boring. I think after this it is going to get pretty interesting. I wonder what Kida-kun will think about Mikado new side.

What did Mikado mean by pawns? He's new to the city so he couldn't have caused much of what is happening, even though he is involved now and I guess is a member of the Dollars. Was he doing or saying something important in the chatroom? and he just became a member of the Dollars right? I wonder who sends out the emails to join that gang.
Mikado seems very happy to be involved now and know the secrets about the headless rider and yagari pharmaceuticals.

A clue that isn't as clear hear as elsewhere is ep 11's title. Storm and Stress is a common (if commonly regarded as kind of inaccurate, or at least misleading) English translation of Sturm und Drang. Searching for both phrases can get idea of what it's about.

Whether it has meaning is questionable though. Harry Potter fans might recognize the words in Strum und Drang in the school name Durmstrang. While Durmstrang is an obvious reference to this literary movement, it is just name dropping without any meaning behind it. and it is always a possibility that the same is happening here in ep 11, but this is unlikely considering the OP.

oh hmm.. well i was thinking more about the fact that in vol. 6 of the light novels mikaido acutally stabs someone here

MAJOR SPOILER
Here the chapter you see Mikado real personality.
spoilers:

DURARARA Vol.6 Mikado, Aoba, and ballpoint pen action.





SAME TIME, AN ABANDONED FACTORY IN TOKYO


The abandoned factory turned even eerier as the night drew close.

For some reason its electricity supply still worked; naked bulbs only barely illuminated the rusty insides of the factory.

"......What's the matter, Mikado-sempai. You have something to tell me in a place like this?"

Kuronuma Aoba spoke to Ryuugamine Mikado, who stood there in his day clothes.

He was twirling a ballpoint pen in his right hand, tapping the steel drum next to him with it every now and then.

Aoba was still surrounded like he was during the day by Blue Square members - and, whether out of coincidence or not, in the same formation they had stood before.

Only this time, it was Mikado who asked to meet them here.

"Ahh, ......I'm really sorry about calling you guys out when you've already had so much stuff for the day like this."

"Don't mind that, it was my bad to drag sempai here at an inappropriate time in the first place."

Aoba smiled harmlessly. Mikado also replied with the same smile he had always been seen wearing at school.

This surprised Aoba.

- ?

- He can't possibly have set up a trap with that Black Rider......?

Taking due caution, Aoba continued to speak with contrived calm.

“So, may I ask what is it that sempai wants to talk to me about?"

"Yeah......I um, thought it over in my own way......"

Sadness permeated Mikado's expression as he tapped the steel drum with the end of his ballpoint pen.

"You were right, the way Dollars is going now is just......wrong. It's definitely not the Dollars I was hoping for it to become. Though there are still idealists among us like Kadota-san and his gang......but the overwhelming majority simply aren't like that."

"My thoughts exactly."

"But it's not like Dollars had any rules to begin with, and making any rules now would just make Dollars not Dollars anymore. ......In a world without rules......the only thing you can rely on to have your dreams realized is power."

Mikado nodded quietly as if to himself, and tapped the steel drum to make it resonate again.

"......And Shizuo-san just quit Dollars today."

"Oh......did he really?"

Aoba was genuinely surprised upon hearing about Shizuo.

Mikado nodded again in silence.

"I......, I'm thinking if you guys are willing to lend me your power, and use me for your own purposes at the same time......then that is a deal I can accept."

"Really!"

Aoba's harmless smile widened.

- Everything's according to the plan.

He suppressed an evil smirk in his heart.

- You're way too naïve, Mikado-sempai.

- This is going way more smoothly than I thought it would.

He hadn't expected everything to happen the way it did today.

All he did was to pit Dollars against the motorcycle gangs hoping it would shove the reality in Mikado's face. Yet the result turned out simply delicious -

- Well, Orihara Izaya probably also did something in the dark to make it that way.

Though he could sense his enemy's presence in this whole affair, Aoba decided to content himself with the fact that he had been able to make Mikado comply with his plan.

- Up until this point things should have gone according to both Izaya's plan and mine.

- To go from here it's just a matter of which side's going to gain the upper hand.

Aoba contemplated this as he quickly reviewed today's happenings in his mind.

- I've located what might be the Black Rider's living quarters. I'll visit that apartment tomorrow.

- And......I'm getting more interested in Anri-sempai.

- Except that Izaya's probably already got all the information on these two matters. ......But it's very unlikely that the Black Rider is one of his chess pieces. If I can make the best out of it -

Aoba juggled all these thoughts in his mind while his expression remained the same docile kouhai-face he always wore when talking to Mikado.

Mikado spoke slowly to Aoba.

"That's right. So would you mind coming over here? I'd like you to sign an agreement."

"An agreement?"

"Yes. An agreement is necessary if we're going to make this deal fair, isn't it?"

- .......

- Well, you can't really say it's un-Mikado-sampai-ish.

- If he's planning to do something with my signature, I'll take the due precautions.

No one really signs agreements for deals like this, but it was Mikado that they were trying to deal with - who was simply unused to everything underworldly.

Aoba thought to himself as he walked towards Mikado.

"So what would you like me to write?"

”Ah right, about this agreement......"

Mikado pointed towards a sheet of paper that lay on the top of the steel drum.

What could he possibly have written there?

Did he set up any elaborate traps between the lines, him, the founder of Dollars? Or did he simply write down straightforward conditions of sealing the deal?

Aoba started just as he reached out his hand while speculating the contents of that agreement.

- Blank sheet?!



The next second - a searing sense of pain was coming from the back of his outstretched hand.

"......HHHH! .........ARGH......"

The pain came from the boneless part between his thumb and index finger, which had just been pierced through.

Still too shocked to realize what had happened, Aoba looked down at his own hand.

And -

Blood was gushing out from the hole left a second ago by Mikado's ballpoint pen which had been jabbed without hesitation into his hand, leaving winding scarlet patterns on the sheet of paper.

Aoba, without thinking, looked up at Mikado -

And froze instantly at what he saw.

Not that he had suddenly put on make-up or anything. Nor did the features on his face change.

Yet for a splitting second Aoba seriously began to think that the person he was looking at couldn't possibly be Mikado.

The boy's eyes were relentlessly cold, as if he looked down on everything in this world -



"Oy, Aoba!?"

"The hell you're doing?!"

Turning to face his restless fellow Blue Square members, Aoba made a gesture of "you guys wait there" with his uninjured hand.

"......Mikado......sempai....... What is......?"

"No matter what you did......you involved Sonohara-san in this whole thing. ......This is my reaction to that fact. It's also my first order to you."

"......"



"Stomach the full wrath of my anger."



Aoba tried desperately to put up with the pain as he spoke to a cold-all-around Mikado.

"......That was.....an impressive line, sempai."

"......If you don't want to comply, just stab my hand or throat back with that ballpoint pen. ......Or report me to the school or the police."

"......"

"After what I've just done to you, you have a right to."

Sadness diluted the iciness in his expression.

Aoba, looking at Mikado, chose to smile instead -

"......No, it's alright. This will serve just fine as......our agreement, written in my blood."

Aoba raised the bloodstained piece of paper high up in the air as he announced with a fearless smile.

"From now on, Mikado-sempai......will be our leader. .......Sempai, feel free to use us Blue Square as part of your Dollars for whatever you please."

"......OK."



Aoba, still struggling to not let the pain show on his face, turned to make sure that Mikado had nodded -

And felt himself freeze.

The air of coldness that had emanated from the boy right in front of him was gone within a mere three seconds; now he already had back on the same smile he wore everyday to school.

"That's just awesome......I mean, I'm really glad you just agreed to do that! I'm so, so sorry about your hand. Ahh, I actually brought some disinfectant and bandages. I'll apply those for you, so here, just elevate your hand above your heart!"

Mikado prepped the bandages so expertly that one might take him for a class health representative at school.

He was back to being the Mikado Aoba had always known - actually, even more Mikado-ish than the Mikado he had always known -

Yet Aoba was seized by an eerie feeling close to what you'd call fear.

The Blue Square members must have shared the feeling to some degree, seeing as how they had given up on their usual banter and instead watched Aoba and Mikado go about their business in silence.

Aoba, feeling his back virtually drenched in cold sweat, whispered in his heart.



- Orihara Izaya, have you realized this?

- I and you, we've probably both underestimated Mikado-sempai.

- Even with what you and I already know about him...it could turn out that sempai......

- Had far from shown us his true character.



- Have you realized this......Orihara Izaya......?

Dang ok. I read it! Now I'm just trying to erase my own memories....

Anyways, I guess this is stuff that might relate to the second season. Cause if i remember correctly the Blue Squares didn't come back yet. And for Mikado, maybe his nature changed when Izaya told him on episode 12 that unless he go more underground each time things will be like the everyday for him. Seeing Mikado react while Izaya was talking maybe just show his ambitions for a exciting life.

So maybe he got too abitious and went a little too underground to the point where it changed him. I didn't read the vols (...yet), but all this is just a guess from watching the show.

- Even with what you and I already know about him...it could turn out that sempai......

- Had far from shown us his true character.



- Have you realized this......Orihara Izaya......?

Mikado is epic. I would of never guess Mikado would be this way. I guess that's what happen when your the leader of Dollars!

this will be a SPOILER so BEWARE don't hate!


anyway in vol 6 in the lightnovels, mikado apparently has a very cold side to him. Not the cautious, shy mikaido we know!


So what do you guys think? do you think he is hiding his real nature? But for what reason?


dunno...

well if you ask me... some of the characters are still mysterious to me...
like you said mikado..
and also the russian guy and izaya...

maybe this will all be clear if there's a new season of this anime....
