Durarara!!

I just watched the first episode of Durarara!! season 2 which has been running for a month on Crunchyroll. It seems to be every bit as  is every bit as delightfully wackadoodle as its predecessor. 


I highly recommend that you watch the first series if you haven't already. Crunchyroll is also running the dub of the first season (which aired on Cartoon Network some years ago). The dub is quite good and is actually a benefit in this show as the story switches maniacally from one focus to another. 

For those who are unfamiliar with the shows premise, it is set in Tokyo's Ikebukaro district and is basically a quiet slice of life show that follows several groups of apparently unconnected people as they carry on their day to day activities which are COMPLETELY NORMAL . That is their story and they are sticking to it...as best they can...which isn't well at all actually. 

The first series was all kinds of off-beat fun, and I enjoyed it immensely.  It's based on a series of light novels by Ryogo Narita who did such a good job with Baccano some years ago and has the same quirky style and mile a minute pacing, reminiscent of a Howard Hawks film or a '40s comedy. If you adored Baccano and never once winced while watching it, you may be deeply disappointed at the jarringly lower amounts of blood in Durrarara!!* However, for the rest of us, this was a feature and not a bug.

Here is a brief look at the characters from season one, minus any spoilers.



OK maybe one spoiler...

*You may also need serious help.
