Durarara!! Light Novel Discussion thread

I have a question about the Durarara light novel. (Or dhurarara, however you want to spell it).

THREAD CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS FROM THE NOVEL: View at your own risk

Spoiler:

Could anyone with some knowledge of the novels enlighten us spoiler-seeking people with perhaps a summary of the major events in novel so far?

Hmm, full spoilers for 1-3, read at your own risk. Been a while since I've read it, and some details are different from the anime. Since it's a msytery novel, it's kinda hard to summarize the major events without telling you what other things happened, I'll just give you a run down of book 1.

Spoiler for Book1:


I'll do book 2 and 3 later (or someone else can do it...). I don't know 4 and onward except more casts show up (Izaya's twin sisters, Shizuo's younger brother, and the Russian mafia started having a more active role etc.) since the books aren't available online ...

I found this on Durarara!! LJ and it apparently contains excepts and spoilers from vol 1-3 and some of 4 with a timeline that goes from vol 1-3.

I haven't look at myself since I'm avoiding spoilers, but for those interested:

EDIT: Changed the link.

Anybody know the real difference between the Yellow flags and Yellow scarves from the novel?

In Ep 5 Kida confronts three members of the Yellow scarves (What happened to the flags?)

I thought it's just translation differences and they're the same group.

I think it's that since I've even seen it translated as The Yellow Turbans.

Ok I have enough figured out now. What I am curious about is there some sort of supernatural powers involving shadows as seen so prominently in the ED and throughout? Like are the main characters going to develop some sort of shadow powers?

Holy balls guys!!!! Ruri Hijiribe made an appearance in episode 6!!!!!

Spoiler for Her identity:


I wonder if this means that the anime will at least go to volume 4. In that case we also see the huge cast of members in volume 4 as well.

If Baccano! managed to squish 5 books into 16 episodes, I don't see why they couldn't do that with 26 episodes...

The manga is way more intense and more insane than the anime.

Episode 7 of the anime was ridiculous. I don't know how the original (light novel) is.
But i am starting to prefer the manga over the anime!

Because I keep forgetting it has more episodes T___T, and the anime sequence's merging a lot of stuff together.

Spoiler for Rio:


EDIT: Wonder if we can turn this into a lightnovel AND manga thread, so we can talk about the manga here too (since so far it's really faithful to the light novel).
