I'd rather have Baccano! second season.

I'd rather have you say that in the actual Baccano topic.

I made that topic. :book:

To clarify, I mean that Baccano! deserves a second season more than Durarara! does and if it we're one or the other, it is obvious which has more potential.

7/10

would have been 9/10 if they stopped at episode 12.

Ending was open: very open. It definitely did not feel like the end, so I'm hoping that that means a second season is on the horizon (well there's also the August specials to look forward to if they get subbed.)

I was really happy to see Shizuo own their car,
and surprisingly,
even more joyous to see Izaya punched in the face.

The studio delivered. Thank you, so much for that sock to the face. :up:

I'm very much a Masaomi x Saki fan now, too. <3

Overall, 9/10: it would be a 10/10, but the ending was just... too anti-climactic. Which could be a very good thing or a very bad thing: only the studio's decision will tell in the future.
Hoping this gets released in the US sometime soon, specifcally in a Box Set. :ying:

HAHAHA. Loved Shizuo's little road sign scene. He looks so hot covered in bandages and blood. <3


Lmfao @
"I'm going to cut you."
"Hoh?!"

I really love Izaya, but I must admit seeing him get punched was funny. Simon's lecture scene is great :up:

Love love love this series all around. Great ending scene for Celty and Shinra. So adorable xD

I'm also really happy for Kida and Saki. They're great together. <3
Spoiler :
But considering where they disappeared to, I'm actually SUPER PISSED! I love Izaya and all, but JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :evil: He didn't have to take such an awesome character! Though I suppose I should be more mad at Kida for making the decision.... GAH THEY MAKE ME ANGRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!



They actually stopped the episodes at a pretty good place. Considering all that's happened, it's a pretty good finale. The next chapters and volumes of the light novels could use their own season, what with all the new characters and things that'll happen. So yeah, really glad they managed to do so well in covering the light novels up until now. Good stopping point for the first season :up:
I'm confident there will be a second season, since Durarara!! is having great success in Japan, and there will most likely be a huge demand for it.

11/10.

Last episode wasn't amazing (really did enjoy it though), but it does pretty much wrap up the series the way it should have. It'll do for now. Even if it doesn't continue, I loved this show all around. I'd give it a good 9/10 :up:

For those of you who don't know yet, a bonus epilogue, "episode 25," is going to be released with Durarara!!'s final dvd, in Feb of 2011. It's going to introduce Mairu and Kururi~ <3 <3
Also, the seventh dvd volume of Durarara!!, which comes out this August, is going to have an extra episode with it as well, "episode 12.5."

Been doing a lot of catching up on anime series and finally got around to Durarara!! Glad I did, awesome show... found a pretty racist statement in episode 19 though:
Spoiler :
Slasher wrote:I'll slash open those yellow children and love them too.

I lol'd :mrgreen:
George Orwell wrote:People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Found this awhile back but I kept forgetting to post it.

I look forward to Otakon's aftermath. :up: (Anyone actually going this year? It'd be great to hear the announcement from a member who is going to be an attendee there.)

I didn't know that the cast was being announced at Otakon. I'm not missing that for the world. I'll try to post the cast list the moment its announced.
