Mikado Ryūgamine, a young boy who longs for the exciting life of the big city moves to Ikebukuro at the invitation of his childhood friend Masaomi Kida, who he has not seen since he was young to attend Raira Academy with him. After meeting Masaomi at the train station, they both set out at night to the streets of Ikebukuro. Masaomi warns him about people he doesn't want to cross in the city: like a violent and superhumanly strong man, Shizuo Heiwajima, an information broker named Izaya Orihara, and a mysterious gang known as "The Dollars." After running into some of the side characters, Mikado witnesses a local legend called the "Black Rider", who rides around Ikebukuro on a black bike that occasionally brays like a horse and also rumored to have no head under its helmet. The "Black Rider" is Celty Sturluson, an Irish dullahan who is in Ikebukuro looking for her stolen head. The narrative follows all of the characters equally, showing how their lives intersect, creating a greater plot-line from what each character knows about a common incident.
Durarara!! is a very detailed Anime I can defeniteley recommend! You won't really get what's going on until you watch it till the end and if you made it through the first season the second will be even more awesome and kind of makes you think "Dafuq just happened again?" all the time! Read on and I'll tell you more!
Have you ever been hit by a beverage dispenser on the street? Well done, because that means you've never been in Ikebukuro before!
Durarara!! carries you off into a world full of shemes, mysteries, supernatural things, supernatural people and over all a small group of three kids living a kind of messed up life where nothing seems to be preditable. Well you even think that yourself until you meet Izaya, an information dealer who messes with everyones life!
Something that kind of bothered me in this series was my anger and hate I felt because of the things happening the way they were. I was annoyed the WHOLE series long because there was ALWAYS something that made everything complicated again when you just thaught everything could get way better!
Because I can't tell you something about the story (except for it to be AWESOME) because I would spoiler you to death whatever I told you, I'll just present the most interesting characters and the ones you just need to know!
A black russian sushi seller. He's just awesome.
An angry character who's always on the edge of raging through Ikebukuro. Although he's a great man who cares for his friends and has noble ideals he has a problem with dealing with his anger and always snaps out of it.
A calculating bastard I really hate because he uses people as he likes it and doesn't even think about them, ALTHOUGH he always sais he would love humans. That may be the reason he likes to "play" with them. He can easily predict everything anyone will do, EXCEPT for Shizuo, his enemy. Shizzy is the only one wich moves he can't predict, what is the reason he hates him. Whats relies on mutuality.
A scottish so called Dullahan who is searching through Ikebukuro for her stolen head. She rides a motorbike and is seen as a mysterious biker who's difficult to be seen. She has a good heart and is always there if she's needed by someone - one of the "good people" there.
Actually... he's boring.
He's annoying and too full of himself.
She's cute, strong, awesome, beautiful, has big boobs and she is a good friend. Also she is shy but everything more would be a spoiler.
So to say Durarara!! is very interesting to watch! To tell you the truth: You have to chew yourself through the first season because everything seems unreasonable and boring UNTIL you reach the eighth or ninth episode where suddenly everything seems to makes sense and you get a hang of what's going on and OMG X_X
ALSO: THE OPENING OF THE FIRST SEASON IS JUST AWESOME I LOVE IT OMG AT LEAST LISTEN TO IT!
I can recommend it to those who have fun with different interesting characters, there's not THIS much action though!
