I haven’t watched a good anime in while, so when I stumbled upon Durarara!! I found it almost impossible to not watch all 25 episodes in one sitting! Set in a sort of dystopian Ikebukuro with a cast of surreal characters, Durarara!! is sure to grab your attention. Each character has their own story that is slowly and ingeniously woven into a fantastic narrative.
A mysterious “Black Rider” who rides a horse sounding motorcycle, a quick tempered superhumanly strong bar man, a black Russian sushi shop assistant, a very cunning information broker, high school kids and gangs…really what more could you ask for?! I know it sounds strange right? It may sound odd (and yes maybe it is a little), but Durarara!! is funny, clever, original and really just a great story of friendship. If you haven’t seen it, I really recommend you watch it, and let me know what you think 😉
