At the point of first season she still does not know what kind of emotion "love" is, and confused if the minor lingering feelings she have (she is not much into feelings, Saika does all the love, Anri herself is empty shell) are friendship love or anything. She is not capable of it yet, also follows the social conventions expected from her.

So major character development needed before actual love can be even an option, unless MC ready to be shealth for her blade.
>>
>>119307735
Who cares? Everyone will be fapping to Izaya sisters. Also Shizuo ends with Celty anyway.
>>
>>119307524
They all get more interesting as the story goes on and develop more. Kida get the least development I think, but the other two will get more character development, Shizuo will also get more screen time I believe.

Them rushing to finish Durarara means they plant to make Etsusa Bridge anime later.

They're gonna cover the rest of the first novel series up to the end I think. I wouldn't worry much, considering they've got 3 cours to work with.

Nah. Celty and Shinra stays together and Shizuo gets a Russian assassin and a loli.
>>
>>119307681
>Them animating 3 cours of Durarara means more Baccano characters will appear though
Baccano characters are mostly cameo, little relevance to plot stuff.

Meanwhile Vamp! has full crossover with Durarara. Would be nice seeing Succubi trying to seduce Shizuo while transformed into Izaya, mistaking his hate passion for love.

It`ll be nice if there was attempt to promote Narita verse (Baccano, Duarara, Vamp, Bridge, Yozakura Quartet) as such, but i dont see a driving force like Typemoon to do it.

Will they use the same OST? Kinda it being other studio (same staff neverless) doubt it. OST made great deal of Durarara anime appeal.

At very least should get same composer.

Did Izaya die after he got his shit kicked by Shizuo and Vorona?

He didn't, but the entire world is basically his enemy now.

He got rekt when he had to take Shizuo head-on in the 13th novel. Shizuo punches his shit, breaks both arms and causes some severe internal injury. And then Vorona shoots him. The gang he organized to protect himself (dead dragon) is ruined and he has two people remaining with him at the end of the novel, the yakuza guy who helped him get to where he is when he was young (Kine) and the girl who tried to murder him when Izaya was hospitalized (Manami). He asks them to get him away from Ikebukuro but claims he isn't sure if he'll make it. They do comply but Manami gets everything she can from Izaya's computers and delivers them to Shinra so she can out Izaya and ruin his life.
>>
>>119310606
There's only 13 total volumes though so it's more like 3 volumes per cour (except for one) when you take away the ones S1 covered. So four episodes per volume seems about right
>>
Should I expect more fun like the first half of DRRR or more angsty bullshit like the second half?
>>
>>119310761
Reading the spoiler >>119310700 here makes the show less fun I think.
>>
>>119310756
Actually yeah you are right I missread your post as if it was saying 36 volumes. My bad. It's the same exact staff as S1 minus the studio so I don't think we have anything to worry about

Well, at least the twins grew up.

From what I read Mikado shows up at the end of SH 1. With the exception of Izaya the main series wraps up everything nicely anyway. Everyone's basically happy. Excluding Izaya. So new characters aren't necessarily bad.
>>
>Stylish 4chan CSS enabled on /a/
I'm ready for S2, /a/.

>>119310803

You mean the spoiler itself or being spoiled? I was spoiled on /a/ about Mikado and Masaomi before S1 began and I guess it did ruin the experience a little for me.
>>
>>119310825

dammit that is not thigh-highs work at all

those basically look like they were painted on
>>
>>119310756
Are the later novels shorter? Because since the first season covered 3 novels in 2 cour and the new season will cover the same amount in just 1 cour segments wouldn't that imply it's going to be more rushed?
>>
>>119306928
It was really boring for me until episode 10
>>
Really surprised with the lack of enthusiasm for the new season. I see these threads hardly reaching 100 posts. Is /a/ just full of newfags who don't care about DRRR anymore and all the oldfags left or did /a/ never care about DRRR back when it was airing?
>>
>>119311344
Not original anime. It`ll liven up a lot when it start airing, but main downfall its still adoptation, so there`d be not much meaningfull discussion. And given its not Pornogatari levels of fanservice, threads will not consist of waifu fapping as well.
>>
>>119311344
A lot of people didn't like the second half of the show, this is nothing new
>>
>>119311344
>did /a/ never care about DRRR back when it was airing?

I remember it being really popular. There were even people trying to create some sort of pseudo-dollars by starting internet rumours and a Dollars website and shit.

I think the problem is that it's been too long since the first season and LN translations are crappy at best. There isn't anything DRRR-related to generate interest.
>>
>>119311344

Try starting a Baccano thread and you'll see the same shit despite the show's general popularity on /a/. There isn't a lot of new content to discuss because most of /a/ doesn't follow LNs/can't moonspeak. DRRR manga is also lagging way behind for some reason.

It was the best selling show of its respective season if I remember it right, it'll be fine even if it gets trolled to hell and back with fujoshit and gayshit trolls

The PV looks like ass though. Izaya looks so strange

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=nCUHLDDK8o8
>>
>>119311584

This was announced months ago though, I don't know how popular the first threads were. Baccano has always been more popular than Durarara though

Besides those threads would be full of HYPE and fake spoilers
>>
OPs were great and it had a good concept with horrible execution.
>>
I never could get into this show. Everything was good except the story, it seemed to jump from one arc to another for no reason, without ever really getting anywhere. The protagonist being the only faggot in a setting full of fun characters didn't help either.
>>
>>119311810

I don't doubt even for a second that if Baccano was aired recently instead of during the pre-tumblr era, it would be accused of being boring fujoshit tumblrina bait.
>>
>>119311868

The storytelling is what makes it or kills it for people imo. The problem with DRRR is that it takes a lot more time for plotlines to come together in comparison to Baccano.

The protagonist does get better. Takes him a while though.
>>
>>119311344
/a/ stopped giving a shit when the entire second half of the show was focused on the worst characters. This is not my subjective opinion, but a fact that cannot be refuted. I have logs.
>>
>>119311868

That's just Narita's preferred method of storytelling. All over the place but actually connected. Can see why some people would find it boring though
>>
>>119311943
well the first season did stop right before Mikado and Anri gets any character development.

Anri still doesn't do shit for a long, long time though.

I mean, you got a sword capable of turning anyone into your slaves and you just spend your days doing nothing and feeling depressed? Really? She's the worst DRRR character.
>>
>>119312168

Which one, the blond faggot or the fedora wearing harem lead?
>>
>>119312226
Well considering they'll actually adapt the rest of the novel, they'll eventually reach the point where she starts doing shit.

But yeah, her character growth is irrelevant when compared to Mikado.
>>
>>119312091
I know you are, but what am I?
>>
So did Celty get her head back? And what happened when she did?

Also Durarara story could be easily concluded/most issues awoided if somebody murdered Izaya at any point of time. Why no one does, is main flaw in writing.
>>
>>119312265
Blond faggot seemed more interesting.
>>
>>119312226
You missed the point that Anri is basically emoutionless hulk adapting to function in human society somewhat, like a parazite? She has little amnition nor emotion, she only slowly starts to regain such thing and realize it.

Most of her concicious capacity is used to suppress Saika`s everloud and passionate love for humanity, leaving herself as merely a shell.

Her seen emotions/desires for most part are merely fulfilling whats expected from her by people interacting with her.
>>
>>119311780
The rest of the seasons are done by a different anime studio. I guess that's why some characters may change a bit.
>>
>>119312319
>So did Celty get her head back? And what happened when she did?
Yes, read volume 13 and find out.
>>
>>119312546
Accedent resulting in Japanese goverment building Etsusa Bridge?
>>
>>119312517
It looks like the new studio is staying closer to the novel art style.
>>
>>119312319

Because Izaya is subtle and careful in his shit-flinging. He also works with and has a lot of powerful and dangerous people working for him.

She gets her head back, realizes she's too non-human and has duties, brings the plot to a closure, saves a bunch of characters from death and apologizes to everyone for the shit her head has caused. She tries to leave the mortal realm and claims she doesn't remember the time she's spent in Ikebukuro (which later turns out to be a lie). She then begins ascending or something. Shinra asks Shizuo to throw him at her and when Celty catches him he severs the connection between her head and body with a Saika blade again. He begs her to stay. Celty accepts. They live happily ever after and shit.

Hi there!

You seem to have made a bit of a mistake in your post. Luckily, the users of 4chan are always willing to help you clear this problem right up! You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops! You should always remember to stop using your tripcode when the thread it was used for is gone, unless another one is started! Posting with a tripcode when it isn't necessary is poor form. You should always try to post anonymously, unless your identity is absolutely vital to the post that you're making!

Now, there's no need to thank me - I'm just doing my bit to help you get used to the anonymous image-board culture!

Shinra is fucked up in the head, probably the result of growing up with a headless death fairy. He doesn't really care about anyone besides Celty.

Anri and Mikado? No way.

Celty and Shinra are probably fucking like rabbits though, and I'm sure Shizuo will probably tap dat Russian ass at some point and Aoba probably had a threesome with the twins...
>>
>>119312892
Even without Celty's presence he was going to end up pretty fucked up thanks to his nut job father. I think Celty keeps him in check for the most part because he knows that she wouldn't approve of him doing anything really bad.
>>
>>119312859

What would he even do with it?
>>
>>119313108

Seriously, the best he could get out of her was a "Mikado-kun" after the guy went on a rampage and almost killed himself afterward.

I don't even wanna imagine how their first attempt at sex would be like. They're sort of like Nice and Jaccuzi, actually, with genders reversed...
>>
>>119313153
Pretty sure he wouldn't go around making zombies but thinking about that makes me realize that it's probably better that he returned it.
>>
>>119313120

Yeah, I guess. He's still a pretty shitty person.

Nearly the entire cast is fucking nuts.
>>
Just rewatched S1, the only "loose end" i did not get was the plot of "fireworks" guy assaulting research facility since they kidnapped (and apparently release, since she could tell him) her girlfriend.

He was shown storming it, was still alive when Shinra concluded eye test on him - but after that was not mentioned, and this plot not relevant for anime.

I assume they deal with the whole Nebula corp later in story and that accident becomes relevant?
>>
>>119313344

Didn't he get it from the secretary though? She was pretty screwed up in the head too from what I remember.

They don't show it but Yagiri Pharmaceuticals had that guy killed, presumably. The corporate guy says the girlfriend guy is not gonna make it home alive to Shinra in that scene, probably in order to threaten Shinra.

It saddens me that he never got back at Izaya for the shit he did.
>>
>>119313506
Yeah.She seemed more stable than the other Saikas though, she just worked for the worst people in world. She wanted someone to love her, despite being a monster, which is why she cut Shinra in the first place.

I'm just gonna imagine Anri's suppressed emotions surface during the fucking and she becomes a sex-crazed animal.

>>
>>119313756
>suppressed
Thats the deal, she does not "supppress" them. She stopped caring/became lifeless hulk before even sliced by Saika, through years of family violence.

So its not like she has storm of emotions pent up inside. She does not know how to feel really, and slowly relearns ability to once she learns to trust some people again - at snail pace though.

Midako easily could have made her his girlfriend and laid, since she follows the social norms/expectations - but thats just like dating a robot.

The only strong emotion she shows is Strict/Motherly care at times for her "children"/friends - but not sure even if its her or Saika manifesting that way.
>>
>>119313895

He suffers plenty. Poor Izaya.
>>
>>119313926

What does Mikado even see in this girl besides the boobs, I wonder?
>>
>>119314021
Is his family any better, or does the girl who`s run with Kida and twins turn out to be manipulative villains as well?
>>
>>119311344
The second half was pretty bad a lot of people only liked the side characters but they were thrown to the wayside for the kids, and everyone lost interest when it left a sour taste in their mouths. Also no one reads LNs.

>>119311879
Why? It's nowhere close to being a shoujo show.
>>
>>119313805
Because she doesn't know anything about love either. She's a monster and doesn't even think she's capable of living with humans and having humanlike emotions. She doesn't actually start developing feeling for him till he's older and even then she isn't sure if it's really love.
>>
>>119314089
I did find the whole Dollars v Scarves a bit boring, but it was still enjoyable overall.
>>
>>119314068

They're both crazy as shit (the glasses one more so than the other) but mostly because their parents never came home and Izaya fucked with them. They're not villains or manipulative though. Just incredibly sexual...
>>
>>119314089

Because that's generally what /a/ does when a show has more male characters than female ones.
>>
>>119310756
They can probably do everything important that happens in volume 4 in a single episode, actually. It'd make a nice opener for the new series.
>>
>>119314068

Kida's girlfriend isn't a relative. She just worshiped Izaya for a long time because the guy manipulated her. I think her family might have been abusive or something and Izaya took advantage of it.

>>119314053

His attraction is superficial at the beginning but they bond through the crazy shit that keeps happening to them.

yeah, but shippers in denial and all that shit. a lot of fujos like to claim the hate and constant fights between them is just repressed homolust because "they never really kill each other and just play around" and things along those lines.

i don't doubt that izaya would kill shizuo if he had the power. shizuo geniunely wants to be a better person and still almost murders izaya, eventually.

She chooses the teacher in the end. 10/10 still mad.

Izaya also uses Nakura

Pure Water is Aoba

Kururi is Kyo and Mairu is Mai

Setton is Celty

Mikado is Tanaka Taro

Kida is Bakyura

Saki is Saki

Anri is Saika

At one point Izaya's accounts get compromised by multiple characters though.
>>
Can any DRRRfags justify Shizuo's character?

He's one of the worst written, most insipid characters I've ever encountered.

>>119317909

Because he attacks whatever shit pisses him off?

I find it very refreshing.

That coat sure looks a lot like Izaya's.
>>
>>119317979
Anri invites him late in the novel.
>>
>>119318051
It is. That's just Yasuda subtlety pushing his OTP.
>>
>>119318050

To be fair his anger is a massive obstacle in his way. He tries to overpower himself in a sense each time he gets pissed off. He just can't control himself.

Incidentally he's finally pretty calm in the last volume.
>>
>>119318050
And his broship with Celty.
>>
>>119318099
I can see that, but it's just strange to see old guy like him talking to people like Kyo in a equal level.
>>
>>119318161

I can't see Namie ever falling for another guy besides her brother. She might fuck Izaya if he offered her a way to win Seiji though.

Izaya should die suffering, all alone.
>>
>>119318187
Whats the deal with his actor brother? From anime he does not seem like a decent guy, more like sociopatic Villain to be revealed, yet Shizuo adores him.
>>
Unlike Izaya, Mikado did everything wrong.
>>
>>119318254

His handle is Gaki. Maybe he's a kid at heart.
>>
>>119318214
That's not a very big deal post volume 2, they have little character interaction past that. I guess cares about friends in general does count though.
>>
>>119318291
He doesn't emote for shit unless he's acting, but he cares about Shizuo, clearly.
>>
>>119318377
And Ruri.
>>
>>119318291

He's completely incapable of expressing his emotions and a bit emotionally stunted, I guess. He's a good guy though. He cares a lot about Shizuo too, just can't show it.

Also gets himself a murderer waifu.
>>
>>119318377
Should give him Saika then. He`d control her perfectly and not be tempted to create army of brainwashed zombies because he already has one.
>>
>>119318292

Mikado is surrounded by friends and people who love him. He gets invited to parties.

Izaya is surrounded by people who're biding their time to brutally murder him and is hated by everyone, including his family. He doesn't get invited to parties.
>>
>>119318490
Saika could control him since he does care about people and love his family though. The only way to control Saika is to overpower it's love with your own or to not allow yourself to feel love for others.
>>
>>119317979

Kadota's Monta, Walker's Walker, Erika's Maomin. I think that's pretty much it, not sure.
>>
>>119318609
Those are Dollars handles, not Kanra's chatroom.
>>
My biggest gripe with Drr is Izaya. Initially though he`s a gray area character - doing good stuff thre, bad stuff here but in the end it turned out to be he`s just insane evil incarnate and whatever "good" he did was always part of his plan for evil.

It was more interesting when it was "dark underworld" stuff akin to Black Laggon, and not "evil incarnate, evil mafia, evil insane scientists and evil corporations"

Sounds hilarious.
>>
>>119318774
No but he really doesn't get invited to parties.
>>
>>119318782
Izaya getting butthurt is hilarious in general. Wasn't he also butturt at some point that no one came to see him when he was hospitalized?
>>
The problem with DRRR is that the comedic elements are very intrusive and jarring within what is supposed to be dramatic or tense scenarios.

There is murder, kidnapping, and violent beatings in one scene, and the next is Shizuo swinging a giant lamppost while charming music is playing in the background.
There is gang warfare stirring up in the city, except the gangs are joke kiddy punk gangs led by a 15 year old and another by internet tough guys.

You can't tell if you're supposed to laugh or feel thrilled.

For example Hanakana's backstory and Masaomi's backstory feel completely out of place in the relatively light-hearted setting with many comedic and fantastical elements. It's not a bait & switch like Madoka, but feels like the author doesn't know what the fuck he's doing.
>>
>>119318862
I thought tons of people came to kill him.
>>
I remember a scene from season 1 where he goes on a rant that because he loves humans they should all love him. Based on this thread I'm assuming he never actually does anything about that or it just fails miserably.
>>
>>119318879
>feels like the author doesn't know what the fuck he's doing.
Then he's doing great at making the readers feel the same
>>
>>119318689

I don't think he's evil - he just tries his best to be absolutely, insanely selfish. He goes with the evil Celty's head plan because he's afraid of his sense of self disappearing completely after death and doesn't mind hell as long as he's still himself. Even then, he still struggles with himself because he considers Shinra a friend and knows his actions will hurt him eventually.

I think you could speculate to hell and back about his psychological problems, though.

>>119318862

He kept calling Shinra repeatedly and was told off each time. Maximum butthurt.
>>
>>119318879
Cant agree. This works fine really and is one of main theme/setting of the show. Its not "adult bussiness". Its only surface of "dark underworld".

As opposed to Baccano thats ultra violent with lots of cruelty and tragedy and still fun as hell.
>>
>>119318879
Playing things like that for laughs was BB's choice. The novel has a much darker tone to it.
>>
>>119318904

No, he was just having a panic attack and imagining people coming to murder him in his hospital bed. Then one crazy chick he didn't even think about came to kill him.
>>
>>119318879
Didn't they fuck up the overall mood in the anime by making it much more lighthearted compared to the LNs?
>>
>>119318879
is this perhaps your first introduction to "shonen anime"?

do you get confused as to why someone who dresses like a giant flamingo can ever be considered remotely serious or theatening at all? Do you have trouble relating to a character if they have a silly name?
>>
>>119318964
Shinra was right to tell him off. How dare Izaya interrupt his sexy cosplay time with Celty.
>>
>>119319006

The novel is also more serious and "cooler", imo. I don't mind the comedy though.
>>
So Izaya likes Shinra right? But is Shinra still friends with Izaya or does he eventually get fed up with his bullshit?
>>
>>119318922
The secretary on 2nd time he said that pointed out correctly that she belives the humans actually all hate him and want him dead.

Then again, he IS a fascinating person and could be adored by those truly living for battle, conflict and happening (remember he treid to stage a battle aking to Valhalla) and that dont have personal grudge against him - and some characters do recognize him as such, also dont approve and go other ways.
>>
>>119319087

Yeah, but that's your school friend lying in a hospital bed after getting stabbed...
>>
>>119319006
So now that BB don't have their hands on it anymore will we get a proper adaptation?
>>
So guys i'm confused.

Shizuo ends up with Vorona or Celty?

Fujotears anyways.
>>
>>119319116
Didn't he have a cult of young girls working for him at some point too?
>>
>>119319167
Why would he end up with Celty when she already has Shinra?
>>
>>119319042
Unlike Nishio, Narita`s writing is not language heavy and rather simple - his strength is characters and story. Both Baccano and Drrr were good adaptations and actual improvement on LN expirience (unlike say Monogatari adaptations that dont do Nishio justice)
>>
>>119319167
Canonically, no one but Vorona is pushed as kind of his love interest.

Shinra and Celty are as canon as canon can be and may as well be married.
>>
>>119319006
I don't think you can blame BB for that. Even later LNs made things apparently awful into laughable jokes. Like the whole thing when Izaya was kidnapped.
>>
>keep hearing about how great of a villain Izaya is, supposed to be a sociopathic bad ass mastermind puppeteer

>>119317610
I rewatched it like 3 times and I still think this show is genuinely better than most shows airing right now, from multiple perspectives (Music, storytelling, art and shit).

Of course there are some cringe-worthy plots here and there but if this show is counted as "bad" then there aren't many shows left that can be called as "not bad" or "average" these 2 years.

Or maybe by this standard anime as a whole is just shit, that's acceptable too.
>>
>>119319112

Shinra and the Orihara twins are pretty much the only people Izaya connects with on a more personal level, but Izaya still eventually chooses to do his evil shit even if it risks their lives.

The only person Shinra truly cares about is Celty, though I think he is way more capable of connecting with other people than Izaya. Shinra just tolerates him.
>>
>>119319291
It can't be awful because it happened to Izaya.
>>
>>119319147
Well no one ever said he was a good friend. They both pretty awful friends to each other.
>>
>>119319220
At begining, when first seem Celty, he said "he felt that this will be his future". So pretty much that and his brofist interactions with celty at begining made this pairing strong. But nothing came of that, and focus switched completely to Shinra. Maybe author had other plans in begining.
>>
Why does Saika love Shizuo if she hates monsters?
>>
>>119319330

Didn't Izaya pull off a keikaku doori and it turned out it wasn't him under the hood who was getting tortured the whole time? Am I remembering it wrong?
>>
>>119319006
I find it pretty interesting how the anime basically plays for laughs away the fact that the otaku duo are actually dangerously insane.
>>
>>119319321
>The only person Shinra truly cares about is Celty
Really? I thought he was good friends with Shizuo. But the way people in this thread talk he seems like a yandere who's good at hiding it.

Not really, these are shows I consider better than DRRR in just last season alone: UBW, Parasyte, Chaika, Grisaia, PP2, G-Reco, AgK, CA, Inou Battle, Amaburi, Shirobako.

I bet you didn't even watch most airing shows.

It might seem like that because volume 2 is sort of Shizuo's spot light novel, he has a lot of interaction with Celty because of that. Also that scene when he meets Celty for the first time isn't in the novel.

The novel pushes Celty and Shinra pretty hard from the get go. There's a lot more in volume 1 that talks about how she's beginning to understand what she feels for him is love.
>>
>>119319503

No, it's really him. Just that the fact that amphishittoolongtoread was a joke group from Izaya's uni time is hilarious.

Because they are? Go away fujoshi.
>>
>>119319425

well, the novels have a flashback to their meeting in middle school. it's explained that izaya always stayed away from people until shinra pressured him into forming a club, and izaya became interested in him because of shinra's complete disregard for humans, unlike izaya.

he's not a sociopath. it's just that his absolute priority is his waifu.
>>
>>119319425
He considers Shizuo a friend but Shizuo sees him as more that annoying guy that hangs around too much. Sort of true since Shinra's hyperness grates on Shizuo but at the same time Shinra does a lot for Shizuo.

Shinra, Celty, and Aoba are still main characters.
Characters that also show up but aren't really too important so far are: Shizuo, Tom, Simon, Orihaya Twins, Togusa (MC's uncle or something), the rest of the blue square guys, Shiki, Mikado shows up briefly at the end of SH1, Mikage, those two leaders from gambling rings Izaya crushed briefly show up at the end of SH2, and probably a couple more.
Anri actually speaks with the new 3 main characters, but it happens offscreen. Izaya is also mentioned a lot despite having no direct or indirect fiddling with any of the events in SH1 or 2, nor does he ever appear

Really, there's more old cast than new cast.

Akane specifically: likes diving into trouble due to a strong sense of justice, wants to get strong enough to beat Shizuo to prove he isn't a monster, and initially tried to kill Shizuo at the drop of a hat over false information.

Because they are not?
Unless you are a fujoshi or gay yourself then you can make anything fujoshit. The plot itself has nothing that involves gay stuff.
And fujoshis were just as obnoxious when drrr came out. But why did no one calls it a fujoshit?
Why would you let fujoshis fantasies decide your opinion over a series?

the crazy sword that possesses people that loves him because he's a really strong human.

Why does Saika hate Izaya then?
>>
>>119320311
Yes, it's the new MC talking to Aoba.
For the record, another character explains the MC's strength as something like: You know how when a person is really afraid, they can exhibit more strength than normal? That's Yahiro, except even the slightest thing can cause it.

>>119320367
No one thinks Izaya is dead. But he's had no role yet aside from still being a target of worship and hated, causing people to do crazy things. You know, the usual. As far as the readers are concerned so far, he could be crippled, but we got nothing.
>>
>>119320464

Because it thinks he's trying to steal its humans.

Are we getting the Mikado fire scene?

The upcoming will have more than one cour, right? It should reach that part.
I want to protect that smile.

I just hope the soundtrack is going to be as good as S1. Specifically, the stuff they played in the background that was jarring as fuck but somehow fit.

No, the upcoming season is one cour BUT we're getting another in July and another January 2016.

You don't have guys with a saxophone come up and start playing it when you're having a conversation in the street?
What kind of third-world country do you live in?

>>119320790
Three split-cour? Neat, though recently most series with split-cour are shit.

>>119320480
So he's basically Shizuo but with fear instead of rage?

No, but we have guys who come up and start playing the trumpet when you throw a lamp post. Step up, Senpai.
>>
>>119321096

Anon, that's...that's not a trumpet.
>>
>>119320941
Yep. A theme in SH the new generation taking over the old. The novel starts off with it saying there's no on to replace Shizuo, but as you see, there is.

He's a lot calmer than Shizuo in general, though. And actually gets along with his Izaya clone despite being fully aware he's an Izaya clone.
>>
>>119321332

>Izaya clone

Is it the other kid? How is he an Izaya clone?

Several reasons.
He intentionally provokes Shizuo into attacking him, and takes the hit just like Izaya would.
He and his sister run the IkeNEWS site, dealing in information.
And to top it all off, he said he would become a better Izaya because his sister used to be an Izaya fanatic.
And he claims to hate all humans like how Izaya loved all humans.


Despite all this, he has yet to actually try to fuck over Yahiro in any way. He actually stepped in and helped him refuse an invitation from Dragon Zombie, since the MC has trouble saying "no" and wasn't aware it was a biker gang.
>>
>>119320504
That makes me think, Momo Kisaragi from Kagerou Days is a character who would receive the maximum possible amount of hatred from Saika. In addition to being a monster who makes humans love her, there are a dozen other small details that would make Saika glow red hot in fury.

Why is Izaya so pathetic?
>>
>>119321694
>>119321738
Useless main heroine with family issues. Her sisters and the two people from Amphiwhatever are the cause of the disappearances that Celty was getting blamed for. Turns out there were no kidnappings, all the people who disappeared were just extreme Celty fanatics.
Heroine doesn't do much aside from lockpicking Green Hair's house to get in, and not giving a single fuck that the MC can beat the shit out of nearly anyone (the MC emphasizes this since he thinks himself as a monster).

>>119321750
Shizuo wonders aloud to Celty about what would happen if himself and Izaya actually got along, referring to Yahiro and Green Hair of course.
I take this to be a hint they're going to get in and out of trouble together.

>>119321937
Basically, except so far she's shown no signs of anything that abnormal. Shinra, when comparing Yahiro to Shizuo and Green hair with Izaya, compared her to himself for real reason other than to fill in the blank of the Raijin trio version 3.

Another fun fact. Shinra is the one who essentially told the new MC to come to Ikebukuro.
>>
>>119322043
>for no real reason
Fixed.

>>119322043
Does useless heroine want MC or not?

>>119321965
because he could have used his resources and intellect to help his community but instead almost ruins everything for everyone.

Wait wait hold up
I just got here

If you know moon and have finished the original LN series, tell me what happened to Izaya in the end
I saw people mention that he got BTFO in previous threads but they never elaborated

It's okay you can spoil me

>>119322043
>not giving a single fuck that the MC can beat the shit out of nearly anyone
That sounds vaguely Shinra-like. We'll have to give it a few more volumes to see how it plays out.
>>
>>119322142
When class girls ask the two if they're dating, they both very calmly reply they aren't and are just friends.
They're both not very social or emotional and haven't had any hinted romantic shit yet. But they're clearing getting together because this is Narita.

>>119322178
>If you know moon and have finished the original LN series, tell me what happened to Izaya in the end
He gets heavily injured but saved at the last second. Nothing after that is mentioned.
>>
>>119322043
>Another fun fact.
What? Did they talk in a chatroom or something?
>>
>>119321965

I honestly do think his family being completely absent and him having to care for sisters at an early age screwed him up into a massively insecure attentionwhore asshole with an overwhelming need for controlling people so they can't do anything unpredictable/leave him/etc.

Shinra getting stabbed and yakuza stuff probably helped. He is actually really pathetic, just also really intelligent and charismatic.

Somebody in the thread explained what happened to him

The first SH novel is translated, you know.
Celty and Shinra, while on an onsen tour around Japan, visited his town and Shinra basically told Yahiro that he's normal and there's much weirder people in Ikeubukuro.
This prompts Yahiro to move, and Shinra later regrets this because rumors start about "SH" (Snake Hands, referring to Yahiro in his Celty-made monster costume) and Celty being a couple start popping up.
>>
>>119310700

Why doesn't he just run the hell away?
>>
>>119322751
Izaya was trying to achieve one of two things: Kill Shizuo, or get killed by Shizuo in front of many witnesses to make it where a monster like Shizuo won't ever be accepted by society.

Turns out that if Izaya had just fought Shizuo head-on with knife from the start, he would have likely done better than his trap-scheme.
>>
>>119312265
Fedora wearing harem fag isn't in season 1. Also, I can't wait for his and Kadota's fight.
>>
>>119322517
Why doesn't somebody show him what a real monster looks like?
>>
36-39 episode for 10 volume of LN?

This is gonna be one nasty adaptation right?
>>
>>119323149
He fights Shizuo (and barely loses) and meets Celty (who tried to restrain him but failed).
His conclusion that Shizuo and Celty are good people and he's still (mentally) more of a monster.

He consults Celty later on about this and she tells him that if he can't stand being halfway to a monster, then to just be a monster. Which prompts the SH disguise thing, beating up two biker gangs and some yakuza.
>>
>>119319755
Simon is the best.

I'm pretty sure the same team that worked on S1 is working on it, so it shouldn't be a complete and utter trainwreck.

Izaya underestimates the hell out of Shizuo in that fight. At one point he realizes he can't avoid a hit and blocks Shizuo's punch with his arms. His arms BTFO and he gets wrecked.

He thinks he's winning anyway by proving Shizuo is a monster, but Shizuo doesn't go with it (he's surprisingly very calm in this scene) and Vorona just gets up and shoots him instead.
>>
>>119323370
Maybe Celty and Shinra should refrain from giving advice in this story. They did pretty well in the first story but goddamn.
>>
>>119323428

In a sexual way?
>>
>>119322316

I thought his family was normal.
>>
>>119323443
>he's surprisingly very calm in this scene
No, he isn't. He was trying to kill Izaya until Vorona got in the way, which surprised the fuck out of him and made him prioritize her not ruining her life over him (which is stupid, her already being a professional killer), and Izaya was rescued moments later. He even admits that if Izaya hadn't left, he would have likely probably kept trying to kill him.
>>
>>119323505
It's up his ass and sharp are my priorities.
>>
>>119323542

They're always working overseas.

Izaya could have been a harem MC if he had a cute childhood furendo caring for him and making him breakfast each morning, but life dealt him Shinra, a completely shitty friend.
>>
>>119323505
No, in a platonic way.
>>
>>119323547

Wasn't Vorona injured in that scene though?
>>
>>119323599
He was already pretty messed up before Shinra stepped in. I always felt that his relationship with Shinra mostly led to him becoming an information trafficker.
>>
>>119323781

Yeah, that's why he needed a cute childhood friend to dote over him from an early age. His sisters are batshit too, though that's probably his influence in the first place.
>>
>>119323856

What he needs is a bloody therapist from an early age.
>>
>>119323370
It would have made more sense to stab him with Saika.
>>
>>119323896

>My Childhood Friend is Secretly a Therapist?!

See, I even came up with a crappy LN title. This shit writes itself.
>>
>>119314354
They were fully aware that Izaya was still gonna use the shit out of them, but they needed money and access to information, which are some of the few things Izaya wouldn't fuck with them about
>>
>>119306899
why is this shit so hyped?

there's literally nothing dat good about it it's just average
>>
>>119317628
Na, its going to start exactly like the light novel prologue, with a random fight scene between an unexplained serial killer and an unexplained hitman getting their asses handed to them with a park bench.
>>
>>119306899
I noticed from the trailer that they changed Izaya's face a bit.
>>
>>119323599

I'm sure somewhere in the vast seas of Internet a shitty fanfiction or two exists with that exact premise.
>>
They are going to cram too much shit into 3 cours, and the LNs start to get meh near the end of the first series. Just read the LNs since the good ones are translated
