    So I figure I'll start a Durarara!! Thread, since there isn't one. Not that you guys watch it, but I figure I'd call some attention to it if anything.
    So at the time of writing this, the series is on episode 9, and it's taken me about 7 episodes to actually come to like it, but It's been a part of my week for a few months now, and I'm enjoying it a lot. Anybody else have any opinions on this series?
    I'd say it's got a lot of main characters, and has trouble switching between them throughout the series, but it begins tying everyone together as the series progresses.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Anyway, if you have no idea what I'm talking about, I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of anime.

    Spoilers insue! Current episodes will be discussed. (you've been warned)

    Also, might as well post a link to the Durarara Chat thingy that seems to be catching on a bit more.

    It's pretty cool, I'd say go check it out sometime.
    (I'll be on as Bammer if I'm ever on due to the character limit)

    I still like Baccano! a little more than Durarara, but they're both my favorite animus of all time.

    Oh, and if you guys want to spoil yourselves, there's a person who's been translating some parts of the novel here and there.

    I did spoil myself with a lot of things, but I'm still going to watch the animu, as there's tons of things that haven't been properly explained. Best animu last season, and probably will be this year.

    Nice, though I don't exactly wanna spoil anything. I'm loving the animation, and I've read enough manga of everything else, so it feels nice to actually watch something. Anyway, new episode drops tomorrow, as always I'm looking forward to it.

    It's a great series. I really wasn't expecting much since I haven't seen Bacanno. I just started watching it because I needed another series to watch, but once the story started I was pleasantly surprised.

    yeah man, seriously didn't see that comin. Though they did well in explaining it. Think that's how Moot felt? hehe. Anyway, the series is still gaining momentum, and it seems to only get better.

    Next thing happening will probably be a war over Selty's head.
    What do you guys think?

    Something's obviously gonna develop with Selty... Mikado was just held up with a knife, so do you think Izaya's gonna do somethin about that? Maybe Selty, maybe Selty's head??
    And what happened with that one person who was all black in the alley with a knife and killed the yellow scarfs guys?

    My favorite part on the latest was the head smash:

    Haha, of course there'd be a gif of it.
    It's mostly Izaya I'm talking about. It's like, who's side is he on?

    Izaya said he is interested in human behavior, so I think he just creates situations to see how to develop for his own entertainment (like the suicide girl from the beginning).
