Izaya obviously.

IZAYA?
>>
>>115279238
He lights people on fire, so one thing he isn't is nice.
>>
>>115279788
But this isnt a good Reason for Anri to friendzone him.. she should date him
>>
whenever i talk to girls on the internet, this is the only anime we can agree on. the boys are just too good, the story is interesting, the music and setting are fantastic. i'd have a threesome with izaya and celty, no homo.
>>
TRUST ME TRUST ME TRUST ME TRUST ME

>>115279830
She has Saika to deal with though so she never lets herself get too close. She really should let someone like Shinra take over Saika permanently.

DRRR was one of the most bland animes that I've ever seen. It wasn't good, it wasn't bad. It was the pinnacle of average.

Man, I bet Namie didn't even get invited. Izaya probably dragged her down there and she ditched him after leaving the room on an excuse and seeing someone she knew.

Is Izaya linked to the Daily Days in anyway?

No, not really. But I don't think he cares about the opinions from the people of the anime anyways.

Add Kida to that and it's perfect.

Not even Miyano Mamoru's voice could make me love that faggot.

How many LN are there and how many have been adapted so far?
How many do you think s2 will cover?

>>115284621
>Stop disliking what I like!
Fuck off, pleb.
>>
>>115285683
S1 covered the first 3 IIRC. S2 is 3 cours, so probably up to 7-8.

DRRR is 13 volumes, DRRR SH is set 2 years after DRRR storyline. Basically a sequel LN.

>>115285773
Disliking Drrr is pretty dumb though.

No, but Saika's whispers are getting louder, especially when she thinks about him
>>
>read LNs

>mfw shitty second-rate english translations have more literary merit than the fucking original

Seriously, some LNs are misunderstood as shit because of lousy english translations by people who have no business translating novels, ever, but you need to be a native speaker to truly appreciate the steaming pile of faeces that is Narita's writing.
>>
>>115285683
Season 1 covered volumes 1-3. Season 2 was confirmed to be 3-cour and will adapt all of the first series (volumes 4-13).
The new volumes Durarara!! SH and it takes place after a timeskip with 3 new main characters. Mikado and Anri graduated, Anri works in her parents store while Kida started working and never finished high school, Izaya is missing after Shizuo left him half-dead in volume 13, Aoba with Izaya's sisters are senior in high school and the rest of the characters remain the same. Mikado makes a cameo when he talks to one of the MCs.

>>115286856
What exactly makes Narita's writing so bad?

>S2 covering the rest of DRRR
Well there goes my hype. 10 volumes in 3 cours? Fuck that shit
>>
>>115287812
Some volumes are short and can be told in a couple of episodes, like volume 4
>>
>>115287812
Shouldn't be a problem. There's only two really important story arcs. Volumes 4, 7 and 9 could be covered quickly. Just depeds on how things are paced.
>>
>>115287126
This response is going to be long as fuck, but in a nutshell: his prose and his plotting.
The prose is shit. It's the closest thing to "purple prose" that I've ever seen in Japanese writing. The constant run-on sentences (even by already-loose Japanese standards) and overly dramatic monologues that rely too much on the ambiguity of the Japanese language without making anything of it wore my patience down quite swiftly. This, coupled with the flat, flat character archetypes that have varying degrees of psychosis slapped on for extra "depth" (doesn't work) is very grating. I think that it's a good novel for those just starting off with reading LNs untranslated. Someone may not realise how cheesy and uninspired the way Narita describes everything (every fucking minute detail) if you're not a native speaker/not sufficiently exposed to what constitutes GOOD WRITING in Japanese (hell, even mediocre writing). The English translations I saw once on some Livejournal page (I think the translator was named Anna or something?) improved the prose and the overall tone of the narration by leaps and bounds.

The plotting, on the other hand, is beyond salvation. He's known for these plots where anything and everything can happen, yet he restrains the actual culmination of events for plot convenience to the extent that every dramatic moment is an anticlimax. The messier aspects of fallout after certain plot arcs (post volume 7 especially) are swept under the rug for the most part, and the extent of shit certain characters are allowed to get up to without any consequences or disruption to their normal lives is unrealistic as fuck.

I haven't read Baccano, so I can't comment on Narita's writing in that, but the Etsusa Bridge series actually remedies a lot of Durarara's flaws and is decent. Not amazing, but decent.
>>
>>115287429
Crippling OCD, coupled with friends encouraging me after every fucking volume, "The next one's where the story really picks up, I swear!"
>>
>>115287812
S1 had no plot.
>>
>>115281601
Shizuo a shit

How are you supposed to like Celty when she has no head?

Anri ha literal brain problems. She is trying to love him, but it would take time.

Erika is confirmed for bisexual.
Walker only likes 2D and is asexual for 3D.
So, no. They are not together.
>>
>>115278515
Shizou. Don't listen to Kamiyan friends.
>>
>>115288105
This just strengthen my belief that Japanese has backward taste of literature than the west; I say Japanese novels are mostly written weirdly and borderline shit while the natives think it's good. Not to mention that when it's translated, some of them feels just weird to read.

When I read it in english, I thought it's amazing.. but it could be just the translator ability to improve the writing. Nevertheless I thought it was the best written LN that I ever read with how he wrote down the narration fluidly, easy to read and more importantly, it's more natural than other LN I read at that time.
>>
>>115281477
Good. As the leader of this harem I'm seeing through that Shizuo gets all the best girls. Narita make it all happen.
