With a couple of preview pics, the Twitter account for the new Durarara!! anime has revealed that Hello Kitty will be stepping onto the streets of Ikebukuro. Merch based on the collaboration between the character goods queen and the urban mystery/fantasy series are being prepared for the Dengeki Fall Festival taking place October 5th.
The second Durarara!! anime series is planned for January 2015. Key staff including director Takahiro Omori, composition writer Noboru Takagi and character designer Takahiro Kishida are returning, but production credits go to Shuka rather than Brains Base.
