It is officially announced today on October 5 at the Dengeki Bunko Aki no Saiten 2014 (Dengeki Bunko Fall Festival) event in Akihabara that the upcoming Durarara!!×2 TV anime will be a 3-cour project. The first cour titled "承" (Shou) is, as previously announced, scheduled for January 2015, then the second cour "転" (Ten) for July 2015, the third cour "結" (Ketsu) for January 2016.
"起承転結" (ki-shou-ten-ketsu) is the four-part organization of Chinese and Japanese narratives. So the 24-episode 1st season, which was aired from January to June 2010, presumably takes the part of "起" (Ki) in the four characters.
At the event, four additional voice cast for the second season are also announced as below:
Hiro Shimono as Aoba Kuronuma
M.A.O as Vorona
Yuuki Ono as Chikage Rokujo
Kappei Yamaguchi as Mizuki Akabayashi
>We are in the age of three split cour series now
>year and a half worth of durarara content
i'm ok with this
I gave up hope for more Baccano animated after I started reading the novels, seriously they are damn good fun.
I just want more of them translated or licensed, I think Baccano is something that could actually do very well in the western market.
I think the same thing.
Any time a western publisher takes suggestions for new series to license I throw the Baccano novels out there. Though the only response I've seen is "Too many books, too long, we want to to a shorter LN series or manga"
>Durarara got 3 cours 2nd season
>SoRaNoWoTo gets fucking nothing
Maybe you shouldn't have shitposted DRRR threads to oblivion with "herp derp lol durarara yaoi shit lol" back then, SPECULAH faggots. Karma is a bitch.
This girl... I think I'm going to like her.

It sounds like they're doing all novels
I think they should be fine. Really the only long story arcs are in volumes 5-6 and 10-13. The other novels could fit into maybe 4 to 6 episodes/ Volume 9 especially doesn't need many episodes strictly devoted to it since it's almost all exposition on Shinra and Izaya's backstory.
