    Default Durarara!! (DRRR!!)

    Does anyone have any idea how they would classify this anime? I'm keeping up on it (episode 12 is out today!) and it just seems like one of those animes that you just can't pigeonhole into any specific genre.

    Also, anyone else loving this series as much as I am? Its got a very interesting cast of characters and for some reason it makes me think about The Big Lebowski whenever I watch it. Feel free to take that however you like, lol.

    Mystery and maybe psychological(something we see in Izaya, Ryugamine, Celty, and Kida at times).

    I really enjoy the method of storytelling that is used; introducing a mystery in one episode, and then explaining the first mystery while introducing a new one in the next episode. At the same time, it has also built an overarching mystery in the forefront (Celty), and kept a more subtle overarching mystery in the background (the Dollars).

    I know! I love it. For the first few episodes I kept asking myself if there was even a plot, I'm glad I decided to stick it out as it comes together so wonderfully.

    And ya, I noticed the way that every event seems to be dependent on Celty's head, it gives the story a wonderful angle.

    Well said Gjallarhorn, it is one of the shows of im currently watching that I am really enjoying. Sadly some of the others are ending... I really hope this comes out well and doesn't end terribly, cause its too enjoyable.

    There's also some fantasy in it too, with Celty being a Dullahan.

    To be honest I considered this more to be along the lines of magic realism. Everyone in the series (for the most part) treats Celty as such a logically possible being that she almost enters the realm of possibility within the show.

    Hell, Shinra practically explains how its possible that she exists in one episode.

    Yeah, I agree, magic realism is a more specific category.

    It seems that you either love this anime or hate it. I have some friends who can't get past the first couple of episodes for some reason. Guess it's not your cup of tea.

    I think the genre would be action, romance, and supernatural~

    Give it a chance up until at least episode 10, thats when the story begins to come together.

    Believe me, I had the same problem as well but when things finally started to make sense, I was blown away.

    Well, after a week of, Durarara!! is back.

    And as seen in the beginning of the new OP, it appears that the proper romanized title is "DRRR!!" and not "Durarara!!", though that should have been obvious in the first place...motorcycle sound effect and whatnot. I added it to the thread title...because I never really get to use the title-changing mod option...>_>


    It seems to have finally taken the inevitable dark turn that had been set up fairly early, too. Obvious the issues surrounding Anri, Izaya having Celty's head, and it now seems that Simon is perhaps a bit less innocent than he appears.

    I live in Ikebukuro, so I find the way the town is depicted kind of amusing.

    The books were standard light novel fare, but I enjoyed them in a sort of guilty way.

    It's going to be 24 episodes, 13 have aired so far.

    And TheThunderBringer, asking for/giving places to download anime and such is against our site rules.

    crunchyroll.com has it ThunderBringer. They're a bunch of legal pirates, but still.

    Haha, when I first checked back in I thought someone had somehow hacked the topic and changed it becuase I said something really "derp"-like.
