Wasn't season2 supposed to air this season?
Whos the best Boy?
and it will be 3 cour
3 Seasons filled with a Masterpiece
one of the first anime i've watched during its airing time. it made me addicted to the medium.
Oh shit you just said season instead of cour as if they're interchangeable, now they'll come
Is Mikado now in a Relationship with Anri?
Why... is he too nice?
Simon best boy.
He lights people on fire, so one thing he isn't is nice.
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
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.
Izaya a best boy.
>tfw IIIZZZZZZAAAAAAAYYAAAAA all year soon
>first show i watched with /a/
>new season 4 years later
Hyped as fuck.
Nope. Brains Base fucked up and let this one get away. Way to lose your highest selling series, faggots.
Durrr is garbage
The new studio has pretty much the same staff
True but BB won't be the ones cashing in.
Wait are you guys fucking serious? They're finally making Durarara season 2?
Yes 3 cours are coming starting this Winter
They can still make another Natsume season or Baccano S2
Izaya best boy or not
Shizuo always gon' be my nigga
Is Baccano! season 2 too much to hope for?
Oh and Spice & Wolf 3
Daily reminder that Shizuo is getting a loli and a russian mercenary in his harem.
as expected of best boy
We Doll/a/rs now
Can't 4chan become a group like Dollars?
Dotachin best boy.
There already is a Dollars BBS/Group
It's full of cancerous, circlejerking underageb&
>When even his screencap says Izaya
Why is OP such a disgusting waste of oxygen.
>you were the first person to notice
this thread has failed
pack it up and go home folks
>izaya and celty
You mean Izaya and Shizuo, right?
Get the fuck out you fujoshit.
It's actually Iayaza.
Shizuo and Izaya a shit.
Celty, Shinra and the van gang are best characters.
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.
Your opinion is one of the most retarded that I have read.
>/a/ is Izaya
But nobody loves human beings more than him!
when you think about it, he really is just an asshole with no friends
>guy moving all the chess pieces with master plan
>really just playing with himself because everyone hates him
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?
>everyone hates him in the anime
>the fanbase loves him
Do you think he'd care about the opinions of the type of people in his fanbase?
>Shinra and the van gang are best characters
Why the fuck did they not include the next episode preview music in the OST?
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.
He only cares about schemes and manipulations. >>115284661 points out just how hollow all of it is in the end.
Because it sounded like someone strangling a cat?
Are Walker and Erika an actual couple?
LN is pretty far translated if you want to read up
Shit gets real.
>Not liking best boy
>Heiwajima Shizuo will never wingman that otaku chick for you
How many LN are there and how many have been adapted so far?
How many do you think s2 will cover?
>Stop disliking what I like!
Fuck off, pleb.
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.
Disliking Drrr is pretty dumb though.
Nobody said that you should stop being a retarded.
Can we all agree hospital girl is the best girl?
Perfect waifu material.
I love her smile, even though there's absolutely nothing interesting about her.
Second best, nothing tops Celty.
No, but Saika's whispers are getting louder, especially when she thinks about him
>reached second-to-last volume
>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.
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.
What exactly makes Narita's writing so bad?
If it's so bad why did you read nearly all of them instead of dropping it?
I just realized how much she looks like a snake.
I hear the story gets much darker.
>S2 covering the rest of DRRR
Well there goes my hype. 10 volumes in 3 cours? Fuck that shit
Some volumes are short and can be told in a couple of episodes, like volume 4
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.
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.
Crippling OCD, coupled with friends encouraging me after every fucking volume, "The next one's where the story really picks up, I swear!"
S1 had no plot.
Shizuo a shit
How are you supposed to like Celty when she has no head?
Is dis nigga serious?
>Why... is he too nice?
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.
Shizou. Don't listen to Kamiyan friends.
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.
Good. As the leader of this harem I'm seeing through that Shizuo gets all the best girls. Narita make it all happen.
this site is gay as hell
Its sure is Chuu2 in there. I bet it gets worse when the anime airs.
