Izaya-“Internet troll powers activate!!”

 Wooooooooooooo! Time for more Durarara on Metanorn and I can’t wait to talk about all the fun and mysterious stuff that happened on this episode! Sorry for the delay, but better late than never right?


Durarara World Problems

Ten million for Celty’s head?!

If anything can be said of Durarara I would say the creators always do a good job of blending in all their characters giving them all equal screen time even though the core theme seems to center around Celty! Much like this week with Max Sandshelt putting a massive bounty just to discover her identity and make her a movie star? Damn ten million sounds great compared to what she lost last time! Hell she could easily create a realistic shadow clone of herself and turn the clone in and take the money and run, but I guess it really isn’t in her to be that sneaky huh? Then again she was super depressed about losing her money and for some reason it came off as a D’awwww moment or maybe it’s a moe trait for her since she can’t really express that emotion with her face? I did laugh when she turned that emotion into a ball which she trapped part of Shinra inside, but those two are always adorable together no matter what they are doing.

Choose your poison! Kururi or Mairu? Just kidding! I pick both!

While Celty deals with her finical problems things are going down at Mikado and Anri’s school! Namely two new transfer students with the Orihara twins Kururi and Mairu who are not in the same class, but even so they stand out because of their extreme personalities! Well just Mairu who proudly proclaimed “My favorite books are encyclopedias, manga and porn!” and then she quickly told the entire class “I swing both ways when it comes to love and sex drive, but I already have a male partner in mind, so just forget it! As for girls, there is no limit to how many I can go with so keep that in mind when you confess your love!.” After hearing all of that I was like whoa she is CRAZY, but she reminds me of Rika from Boku wa tomadachi even down to wearing glasses. On the flip side we have Kururi who seems to be more quiet compared to Mairu, but she is just as crazy because for some reason she chooses to wear her gym clothes instead of a normal high school uniform? I wonder how she managed to convince the teachers to allow that? Either way which sister do you like? I can’t really decide because both of them are just so damn fun to watch even though I am leaning more towards Kururi because she is voiced by my favorite actress Hisako Kanemoto.

Mairu-“Sup bruh wanna have some girl talk?”           Random girl-“…..help…..”

So with the Orihara sisters standing out more than the other students naturally they gain the attention of all the mean girls who start to bully them and according to Izaya he is not all that worried because the bullies quickly learn you simply DO NOT screw with them! Well more like don’t screw with Mairu who is far more into the act of getting revenge than Kururi; however like any pair of over protective siblings if you mess with one of them you are bound to suffer the wrath from both of them or worse the family! I fear for anyone who pisses off the Orihara family or maybe you can be as bold as Aoba who stood up for one of the sisters and is now on their good side? Then again most would say he totally struck gold because he even got a kiss from both of them?! I guess that beats being punched or kicked by them.

Shingen-“I must research your boobs err I mean character progression.”     Anri-“……” 

Finally we have Anri meeting Shingen at some random karaoke bar and to my surprise he knew her parents and even her demonic blade also knows him as well? I just have one question! What the hell was he into back in the day? It is starting to sink into my brain that he knows a LOT about the supernatural world, but I suppose if Celty exists in the world of Durarara then why not other supernatual like creatures? Personally I would love to see more supernatural characters thrown into the mix. I don’t know if anyone here watches the TV series Sleepy Hollow, but that series also has a headless horseman which they are using as a tie in for The four horsemen of the apocalypse. I wouldn’t be shocked if they do the same with Celty or some other characters later on and no I have not read the light novels for Durarara.

Aoba-“Damn Mikado you got dat ass.”                 Mikado.”Oh god why.”

Erika-“yo yo yo yo yo yo.”

End thoughts

Dayum that was such an entertaining episode! I guess partially due to Kururi and Mairu finally joining the cast officially along with Aoba who was a bit creepy stalker-ish towards Mikado who quickly discovered he was a member of Dollars? I can’t imagine what Aoba would do if he learned the truth about Mikado later on in the series, but I almost forgot the bit at the start with Shizuo using a park bench to knock the hell out of that masked attacker and TALL ass dude! So I wonder if the tall guy has anything to do with the Hollywood killer? I mean Anri detected something from him right? So that means something up but for now I will say probably not because I think that is the first mini arc of this new season! Anyway what did you like about this episode? The new characters or maybe the old characters doing stuff was more enjoyable for you?

    Just a general metanorn comment: you guys are getting carried away with the FK YAs.

    Durarara is a show of like 70% build up, 30% payoff. We are in the building phase, so I just want to see all the different paths intersecting. Plus, I still can’t predict where the show’s direction is pointing, so that makes the show even better in my book.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Hahaha yeah I guess I could take those off my posts in the future so you can blame me for that xD

      True we are in world build mode for now with all of the characters showing up for a bit doing their thing and then we switch to someone else, but I hope we focus on the Hollywood killer and figure out what else is going on.

      • Wanderer says:

        Maaaaybe we will, but do recall how long it took them to focus on the Slasher in season 1, despite the fact that she was talked about very early on.

        • Foshizzel says:

          You are correct that took up a good portion of the season but I know we are getting at least four seasons of Durarara this year so it won’t be long.

          • BlackBriar says:

            It’s a total of three cours: Winter 2015, Summer 2015 and Winter 2016.

    We, um, kind of knew that already. Shinra told us last season that Shingen is the reason Celty’s head is lost: Shingen used Saika to sever the connection between Celty’s head and her body. That’s why she can’t sense her head, or see through it, and why she’s lost the memories that were in it.

    The characters now look uglier. Really, they could have stayed consistent to S1.

    • BlackBriar says:

      Really? I don’t see a difference between Anri and Izaya of season one and now.

      • JPNIgor says:

        I actually noticed some narrower eyes on some characters like Masaomi, but nothing too degrading to the point of making them ugly.

        • BlackBriar says:

          Unless such things are put under the microscope, I’m not going to notice them so easily.

      • Wanderer says:

        I have to go with BlackBriar on this one. Everyone who matters (Anri, the twins, Erika, and I suppose some guys if you care about that 😛 ) all look pretty consistent to me. There may have been some minor fluctuations, maybe, but nothing like… say… the difference between the two seasons of Log Horizon.

        • BlackBriar says:

          With Log Horizon, the differences are in plain view. Like the character designs look sharper on anyone who has anything pointy. Hair, for instance.

    • JapanInspired says:

      Think about it this way, they just got older 😉

      Though Izaya’s eyes creep me out a bit.

      • BlackBriar says:

        The thing about anime characters, even if a certain amount of time passes, it won’t be easy to see a difference unless it’s a drastic change. That and they tend not to look like their supposed ages. Hitsugi no Chaika’s Toru is 20 years old but looks roughly around 16 or 17.

    • Foshizzel says:

      I kind of notice some changes in the designs, but overall I will say they still look the same to me and I remember the artwork from the first season being a bit weak in some episodes.

    IzayaFoshizzel-“Internet troll powers activate!!”

    There. Corrected.

  5. JPNIgor says:

    When Mairu just said that porn was among her favorite books I just had to pause the video and scream “WHAT THE HELL?!” and then she continued by saying that she swinged both ways and I had to pause again to laugh maniacally. I love her. Way more than her sister, srsly.

    Oh, Aoba. I hope my envy kills you at some point.

    • JapanInspired says:

      Lol, my exact reaction. I actually replayed that part a few times. Hilarious.
      Surely an enjoyable character. It’s sometimes hard to tell if she’s serious or not.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Mairu = BEST GIRL EVAR <3 <3 <3

    • BlackBriar says:

      It was unbelievable. I replayed that part a handful of times to make sure there were no mistakes in my reading. My impression of her shot up after that.

  6. Wanderer says:

    Oh so many silly people trying to choose between the twins… You don’t understand that there isn’t a choice. As far as they are concerned, they aren’t two different people: they are one person in two bodies, and when you combine the personality traits they display individually it makes a single being.

  7. zztop says:

    Heiwajima Shizuo vs The Hulk. Place your bets.

    • BlackBriar says:

      Is betting on a stalemate possible? This could go either way.

      • zztop says:

        Stalemates are accepted.
        Of course, angry green giants are so passe…
        Plus, I hear Heiwajima makes a knockout Long Island Ice Tea.

    • Foshizzel says:

      You have to factor in stamina! The hulk gets stronger and stronger the more he fights so I think eventually Shizuo would get tired…maybe…I mean he can keep up with Izaya who always jumps around.

    • Kyokai says:

      Shizuo, every time!

  8. BlackBriar says:

    How unreal it still feels acknowledging Durarara’s actually back.

    Ten million for Celty’s head?!

    That amount isn’t enough if you ask me. The bounty on Koro-sensei (Assassination Classroom) is ten billion.

    I’m already in love with the Orihara twins. They’re a riot and make me question their genetics. Are we sure they’re indeed blood related to Izaya? Right now, Mairu is the leading force of the two for her impulsiveness and unpredictability that I couldn’t help laughing. A girl that admits she’s into porn is a win in my book but when she says she swings both ways, I was left speechless but grinning from ear to ear.

  9. Kyokai says:

    So, I’m pretty sure the person Shizuo banged up was Hollywood in the park. The tall ass dude voiced by Morikawa Toshiyuki was also injured by Shizuo in the same events so I wonder if he’s actually dead? Hollywood must have survived but let’s see how things roll in next episode. 😉

    • BlackBriar says:

      If he indeed has a connection to the supernatural, it won’t take him long to recover.
