Ryuugamine Mikado is a boy who longs for the exciting life of the big city. At the invitation of his childhood friend Masaomi, he transfers to a school in Ikebukuro. Masaomi has warned him about people he doesn't want to cross in the city: a champion fighter, an informant, and a mysterious gang called "Darazu." Nervous from Masaomi's stories, Mikado witnesses an urban legend on his first day in the city, the Headless Rider astride a black motorcycle. From then on, the existence of supernatural cases and a gang called the Yellow Turbans will rise to the surface, and Ikebukuro will pushed to the breaking point.
Durarara!! is one of my favorite animes. Telling the story of Ikebukuro and it's inhabitants, the show has a great number of residents. From super strong Shizuo to the always inscrutable Izaya Orihara, this show is Anime GOLD! A very good show, that just begins the exploration of a mysterious town with mysteries, mayhem, and some good old fashioned brawls!
It's difficult to describe this anime. There are many intertwining stories from multiple characters and all of their point of views. Somehow they all connect over various different incidents. The genre of this anime is probably mystery. I cant really describe it but i didn't enjoy it very much.
Such a fantastic show I recommend to any anime watcher. So much goes on with it's large cast to where so much crazy stuff happens, and it has one of the funniest rivalries between a set of two characters in any anime I've ever seen.
