Well it's not like we weren't discussing that possbility here anyways. It was obvious from the type of comparison made earlier imo.

Izaya looks good as a female.

What's with Kida singing Linda Linda Linda?

Obvious is not confirmation though, and some might not have been following the conversation the entire time.

I was a little surprised by this popularity on pixiv and it's not a bad thing since there's too much Vocaloid/Touhou stuff (even there're really nice drawings).
Even there's "yaoi" stuff, we have nice stuff like Celty fanarts

Spoiler for Celty luv pics~:

I loved episode 7. I had been waiting for shizuo's story and it sure as hell didnt disappoint.

I loved how they explained Shizuo's freakish strength as its somewhat based in reality. Our brain regulates what we do for a reason. The human body is capable of more than we actual do with it but its also fragile. Therefore the feeling of pain or tiredness keep us from over doing it except in those cases where people do the impossible like a mother developing super strength for a short period of time trying to save or protect their child. In Shizuo's case that part of his brain that should tell the body to stop is well turned off. So he can use 100% of his strength but the body physically could not handle it so kept breaking his bones. Whats funny is he kept getting stronger everytime he healed (like a certain Goku we all love) because his body was learning and adjusting to his strength. Then there's the milk well we really dont need to go into that one its pretty self explanatory.

There are just some people you dont like before they even open their mouths but in this case i see way Shizuo hates Izaya its pretty well deserved. There first duel Izaya won by default because Shizuo got hit by a truck LMAO I think these two will be bitter enemies till their on their death beds and even then Shizuo will be trying to crush Izayas head with a heart monitor.

I think the only 2 people that can keep him check is his brother which i enjoyed all their scenes together especially the one with him going nuts and his brother doesnt say a word just breaks out the milk lol. Then there is Celty that was a nice scene at the end well anything scene with Celty in it is good for me.

The writing for Dhurarara is top notch and i dont mind the animation either. Its crisp scenes dont move to fast and the stop action is used at the appropriate time and not over done. Im loving the music so far as well everything just seems to fall into place. The show is easy to understand, humorous and knows how to keep an audiences attention. Even with the show split between several different characters that are all connected its very easy to follow. I feel this is key when having a large amount of characters that are of equal importance.

Favorite line from episode 7.

Simon: Shizuo!
Shizuo: Yo
Simon: are we done with puberty? The its time to eat sushi.

^ Izaya is like the perfect asshole. I doubt hes bitter against shizuo for that reason, just liked making him mad.

Izaya is awesome but I am still amazed he has friends. Shizuo is great this week too.

Ep07 was pretty damned entertaining. If Shizuo had ever played those smash-the-town games, I bet he'd totally own every slot in the high score. Though on second thought, he'd probably destroy the machine before that'd happen.
And while having such an insane ability seems convenient, it did ended up messing Shizuo's childhood quite a bit. Kinda sad to think about it, but it's fun watching Shizuo break stuff so I'm not complaining.

We're bound to see it, though i don't think it'll be until near the end of the series. The mystery of Izaya is an important part of the series, so they'll keep that mystery locked up for as long as possible.

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.
That was just great when he owned the power rangers. Probably not a great idea for a job there . Still damn hilarious to watch.

He definitely became my favourite character after this one. His past was pretty interesting to look into and you can't help feeling for the guy since it's outside of his control. Has to be incredibly tough to get by like that.

Yeah there really are some people you know you will hate. Of course Izaya completely lived up to expectations and probably surpassed them. At this point Shizuo really has built up quite a few reasons to hate Izaya. After all that has happened it's probably a good idea to try to take him out right from the start. I could seriously see Shizuo on his deathbed picking up the heart monitor ready to beat Izaya to death with it. Since you could certainly still see Izaya saying something to piss him off even at the end.

You are probably right there. I'm not sure if Celty could keep him calm, but would probably have the sense to just stay out of the way. Sadly too many stupid people go at him and pay the price. A nice bond he has with his brother who certainly knows how Shizuo's life has gone. A good relationship between brothers that helps comfort Shizuo no matter what happens. Plus that friendship between Shizuo and Celty does make sense. She definitely helped with the irritation he'd been feeling. Always good especially in Shizuo's case to have someone around you can simply talk to. Besides she understands how someone can feel when being around Izaya.

One word to describe Ep. 7: GAR!

Shizuo is the freakin' man.

Also enjoyed Celty repeatedly jabbing Shinra wahahaha. Tough love.

Dont you remember Baccano? Its just 13 episode but is epic, it even gain #25 rank at MAL. and I think with Ryohgo Narita's ability *jyah* bet he can do it
go narita!

I'm pretty sure the hint is that it's to do with the supernatural rather than just 'instinct' and that it will be explained later on.

Anyway i thought this episode was great. Even though Shizou's reason for hating Izaya right off the bat was strange, I still manged to sympathise with him and hate Izaya a little myself. So that was well done imo.

Other great stuff like Darher Than Black, Bacanno!!, Cencoroll, chibi Shizou, teen Izaya vs Shizou, ShizouxCelty and Shizou weilding a road sign that says '!'.
I think Shizou disliked Izaya for his insensitive-ness. Imagine a stranger/friend's friend applauding you for something you hate to do, with a smile on his face, like mocking you. I think i understand how Shizou feels

Perhaps maybe, but Shizou never made any such justification. he just said that he hates Izaya, for reeasons even he himself didn't know (or something along those lines).

Which why I and some others have said it likely based on Shizuo's intuition than on logic. If you noticed he in he also correct guessed that Cetly wasn't normal either in the same way despite only meeting her for the first time.

It's just intuition. It's nothing supernatural. Everyone using it everyday.
