Three more weeks until the return of a weaponized messageboard and its admin. Who hype?
Will we get as far as the pen scene this season?
First arc ended early this year with 13 volumes, and the first volume of the second arc after a two year timeskip was released in April.
They have years of material to work with. I just hope Studio Shuka will put out new seasons unlike Brains Base.
Then again Shuka is mostly old Brains Base staff who left precisely because they wanted to work on Durarara.
>watched first season as it aired
>rewatching with gf before the next season starts since she's never seen it before
>all this plot hinting and foreshadowing I never noticed the first run since I didn't know any of the story
>all this temptation to spoil it because the twists are actually interesting and well done
Man, I didn't even realize it was actually this good when it was airing. Season 2 hype is real.
I always loved the van gang. They're kinda just random, normal characters who're just there, yet are just as interesting as the "main" characters.
Things get less light-hearted and darker every volume. Especially Mikado, even leaving you wondering if he ever really was a likeable character. There's still humor, but even that gets darker.
There's two other novel series set in the same universe as Baccano! and Durarara!!
I don't know anything about them, but I wonder if they're ever going to get adapted. (Bow Wow! and Vamp!)
She spends most of her time trying to figure out whats wrong with Mikado. She has a couple of good action scenes in vol 5-6 and some good character interaction with the Shinra, Celty and the van gang. Also, worst Saika.
you're being an ass, but my gripe with the show was that it had excellent build up, but then the climaxes rarely delivered.
I mean, at the end those gangsters tried to get away but Shizuo impaled their car with a signpost. And I was disappointed. I think that says more about how hyped I was for the climax and their comeuppance, that something as rad-sounding as that was a "disappointment." I was expecting him to cut the car in half with the sign like fucking Goemon or something, dragon kick their asses into the milk way, whatever.
then things like that traffic cop, and the doctor's father, just kind of being there and vaguely threatening at first, then not actually mattering.
