Didn't really enjoy how the Durarara!! anime developed, even though I liked most of the characters. Is the LN any better?
It's certainly better for the sole fact that it continues from where the anime left off.
Is it translated? What about the manga?
No one cares about the manga, just read the novels.
watch baccano instead. same style of ridiculous characters, except they interact in a more interesting way through a nonlinear plotline.
