So I recently watched the entire Durarara and X2 series, and I absolutely loved it. It might be the reason I joined crunchyroll.

Has anyone read the manga, and if so, is it worth reading even though I already watched the series?

Also, I'm super new here, hi everyone!

Wait, as in "there is no manga," or "no, read the manga," or "no, don't read the manga?"

That's super disappointing, I was just on the wikipedia and I could have sworn they said it was originally a manga. My bad!

There are various versions of the spinoff manga and from what I've heard of, a main manga. However, most of the material is based on the light novels.

Ahhh so it is a Light Novel. that's what I meant originally.

And thank you for the suggestions. I am an avid reader, and always seem to enjoy the literary version of any movie or show. Perhaps I will try to get a copy of the series.

Do you guys know if it is available in e-book form, maybe for my kindle? That would be awesome.

It was serialized in GFantasy, though don't ask me how far in the light novels they went. Looks like there're some side stories focusing on Anri and Masaomi too, but again... don't ask me if these were part of the light novel.

I've seen electronic versions of them on amazon.co.jp, but those're gonna be in Japanese. I think they also check if your IP address is from inside Japan, but that's only hearsay.

Maybe check on amazon.com to see if they've been translated.

thanks caelk!

just curious, who is your favorite character in the series? I love Izaya, even though he is a jerk I can't help it!

in the english dub, the voice actor who plays Izaya is pretty popular, but I can't put my finger on which other popular Anime he is in. Do you know who I am talking about? I keep thinking its Ichigo from Bleach, but I don't think that's right. It's on the front of mind but I can't quite remember who he is. do you know?

His name is Johnny Yong Bosch. He's Ichigo and Vash, among countless other roles.

Thank you so much. It was one of those annoying "tip of my tongue" situations, possibly resulting in sleep loss (lol). I actually have another un-related situation you might be able to help me with:
