DRRR!! isn't getting a 2nd season It apparently will get an OVA though.
Seriously, nobody can resist his trolling powers except for Simon (who is untrollable) and to an extent Namie. Everyone else gets mad just by standing near him.
Both him and Shizuo are really awesome characters.
The anime was really good but the ending was... nothing special.
I am HUGELY disappointed by the amount of people who have watched this but haven't watched Baccano!, one of the best anime ever made. I mean, seriously? If you think Durarara!! is good then watch Baccano!, seriously. Same producers, a couple similarities but different anime (set in the same universe, but Baccano! is in ~1930)
Agreed, Baccano! is very awesome.
In fact, the main reason I watched Durarara! was because I was expecting it to be just like Baccano! I'm pleased to announce that it was while being unique at the same time.
Ok finally back to watching it I'm on episode 7(and trying to doge all other posts in here out of spoiler fear!) it's even better than I remember and I have the luxury of having more time to properly watch it and as such understand it better, Izaya is such a hero he make my heart smile.
I watched it, as there were a lot of people who recommended me saying it was good and what not, I gave it ago.... but it was so boring I could die, it had the same feeling I had when I watched "Welcome to the NHK", like watching 1 episode would feel like I'm watching for a whole year.
I didn't like any part of it, sure there were a few mysteries but meh, it felt bland and boring to me, soundtracks, characters etc etc they were all poor, imo. -.-
By the way when I say I gave it ago I watched like till episode 14 that's like more than half of the anime not 3-4 episodes. -.- It never changed anything of the view I had on it, it still was so boring and not interesting in the least.
Set by Sheikah
I was intrigued by how all those different stories came together. Like, there were a lot of different main characters with different stories, but they all came together in an un-abrupt fashion. Plus the concept of Dollars is pretty awesome.
Wait, you people sure it's just gonna get an OVA? I thought it got renewed for a 2nd season...hmmm......
Anyway, the anime itself is incredible. It's definitely right up there with Baccano! on my list of favs. To think the only reason I actually came across Durarara! was because I saw Izaya's version of Renai Circulation.....heh.

I actually just finished this series a while back. I really liked the feel of it and at first I thought it was kind of boring but the second season was really nice. What disappointed me though was the ending of the second season. I thought something really big was going to happen because of the way things built up but instead everything just sort of ended with some convenient happy ending and I was left unsatisfied. I felt like this anime had really great potential though, it just didn't get as big and interesting as it could have.
