Yes I sound too negative. But I can't help after being drilled by that RL lecture orz I'm still hoping this will be having a really good selling though despite my negativity! ;-;

DOUBLE EDIT (This is far too awesome not to fangirl) : I KNOW IT YANA TOBOSO IS A BIG DURARARA!! FANGIRL AHAHAHAHAHAHA -shot- (I was having doubts that she done that pics out of necessity as a G-Fan author, but lmao that doubt was already dissipated BD)

I was never a Shizou fangirl to begin with. But this episode managed to make me feel less for him than before. I really liked his interactions with his brother. But learning that his extreme violence is nothing more than a simple lack of anger management skills was rather disappointing. I would have preferred him to remain a mysterious force of nature than to learn that about him.

On the other hand, I've always like Shinra. This episode just enhanced that sentiment. He's so quirkily weird. A true delight to watch.

Izaya is just god.

I laughed my ass off seeing how Shizuo raged, raged and raged again.

That is very true. I forgot how much the otaku looked forward to Railgun . The big difference is that no one really knew about Drrr till now.

Female otakus/fujoshi buying power is still pretty strong. Kuroshitsuji first volume sold 20k, Hetalia first volume sold 28k (after a whole year though). Pixiv statistc shows how popular Drrr is with female audience (oh god...more then 50% of Drrr fanart has Izaya in it...).

Also, I think some fans would wait for a bit for now. This is obviously produced in HD yet they're only releasing a DVD. I wouldn't be surprise after 1 year this has been aired, there would be a BD-boxset.

Let's just wait till next week.

Oh yea...where's the character singles? They got a whole bunch of fujoshi favourite seiyuus, they're going to force them to sing right?

As I know 1st volume of DVD gives you:
-Shinra's gaiden
-Kida's karaoke: "Linda Linda" by The Blue Hearts
-pic of Shizuo and Izaya
-Mikado's character card

Shinra looks indifferent between male and female.

what that could be a huge spoiler? then if that's the case I had already a idea on the identity of one. I thought its just your average fan made one.

Though I like izahaya in female mode.

Those of us who are unaware of the spoilers would have remained happily ignorant if you had not mentioned that.

Posting images with spoilers has a fine line since it doesn't deal right with the epi. If you know something you're posting has spoilers please say it in the spoiler tags since a lot of time tags are simply used for hiding large images. I edited the tag.

If the spoiler is what I think I see then to me if no big deal to me since me line of thinking was going that way but remember be courtious to everyone in the thread

Maggare OnoD is also confirmed to sing character song...

... Which comes with vol 3 DVD Limited Edition.

-Cue wallets drying up even further-

They are definitely going to continue this trend, and that will assure some hardcore CV fans to buy the DVD, heh. I am not going to accept no Kamiyan or FukuJun songs, certainly they are the perfect bait for every single fans :| Sorry, but not sure on wanting Toyonaga's, prolly because I don't know who he is orz

Episode 7 was great, Shizuo is just awesome he is now officially my favorite character in Durarara. I though it was funny when he threw the power ranger at the kids birthday party, I couldn't stop laughing at that.

I hope we get to see some more of Shizuo in the future he is just too awesome. Really looking forward to the next episode.

BUT FukuJun and Kamiyan can't sing a single note...Have you heard Lelouch's character song? It ripped my ears, no matter how much I love FukuJun's voice acting or Lelouch.

Toyonaga played 2 characters in Katekyo Hitman Reborn, he sung a character song for one of them. Pretty average vocals for a male seiyuu, it's not amazing but not terrible like FukuJun. Pretty much on OnoD's level, but I'm using OnoD's Haruhi live as comparison.

Why do I want Kana-chan to sing one too? I loved Renai Circulation...

In all honesty, I don't consider FukuJun as one of good singer, trust me. But damn, he is so popular for some reason... Pffft @ Zero's power! I only consider him since he could boost some sales as much as I feel deterrent towards him~

As for Kamiyan himself, it's actually half hit or miss in all honesty Although I do can see why it's easy to think most of his songs are so off-notch lmao Not helping that some of the composition of the music itself are... Hmm, weird is not the word here, but close to weird. Still, if he hit the notch good enough, or he's not using his usual higher pitch when singing songs, I think it would be okay for most part

Although, in all honesty, that might be because I have heard too much of seiyuu songs that I consider Kamiyan to be at least 7/10 in a scale of CV singers. There are practically songs that are far worse than his occasional off-notches, imho Yuuichi Nakamura included BD;; That and the fact that they are not trained for singing~ Female songs are usually ranked higher in my books if I actually want to be very objective.

I still want to kick someone who decides we can get Miyano's character song first though. :I Tonally his songs are good, but damn if I say that they really lack feelings so much orz Oh well, at least the box cover from Amazon is ahem, good gracious I'm seeing something good there!
