It's a good anime. i warn you though you've gotta kinda 'get though' with it for a few episodes until you grasp what's all going on. Once you do though it's VERY cool. The only thing i didn't like about the series is the entire time the story is building towards what i thought was going to be an amazing climax and it just came off being pretty gay. The whole 'gang' them really wasn't used as good as it could have been in my opinion. :/ But definitely worth a watch!

I'd say it has a very similar 'feel' to baccano. If you couldnt get into that you wont get into this, but i think its very good

I don't know why people thought this gets bad after 12 episodes. Pretty compelling story. You gotta watch eps 12.5 and the first 10 minutes of ep22.

I thought the series was pretty decent, it gets better further in the story. I do wish story didn't jump around so much between character point of views so often between episodes. Does have quite a few active character so it's expected.

I also gave up after episode 8 or so, but seeing how everyone says it gets better i might try it again.

Overall, no. Absolutely not, it's a complete mess of a story that focuses on the wrong characters and forgets it's purpose.
It's a fun experience, and the first half is interesting enough. The second half is laughably bad at times, decent at others. Keep watching if you enjoy what you've already seen, but don't bother if you aren't because it's only going to get worse from there.
It's not the worst show or anything, it's decent and has a lot of good ideas, but wow was it disappointing for me.

It's good after 10 episodes.

Then it suddenly stops. And there's no season 2 >.<;; so I'm left with this feeling of unfinished anime.

Unlike what "JayVeeDees" said, I actually got into it more after episodes 9-12, I watched 1-7 so slowly...It took me a few weeks. Then I got to 15 and breezed through the rest in one sitting.

It's a complicated show. The design and animation are excellent. The tone is kind of like a slice of life series in a cyber-punk environment with an ensemble cast. Since each character gets at least one significant story arc, it can come off as disorganized, but most of the arcs tie together in some way. In my opinion, it was the best show of the WInter 2010 season (at least for those shows available on CR). See my review at http://www.crunchyroll.com/durarara/reviews

I just started watching it, I'm on episode 6. It started out boring but it's starting to get a little more interesting.

its pretty good, though I personally felt that there were a few eps that should've been cut out because it felt like filler

It's good! It does kind of switch gears a bit before halfway through, moving from something that seemed like a slightly gritty slice-of-life into something else, but I liked both "halves." And I really liked all the background music too.
