When its quite obvious, Mikado is Moot.

And also Light is an insane megalomaniac which Mikado definitely is not.

And Mikado is definitely no longer just an ordinary boy. I think a lot of people want to do extraordinary things with their life but rarely actually do them. As they say talk is cheap.

And I stand by my contention that it's much more accurate to call Mikado the "founder" of Dollars - not the "leader". Viewed in that context, what could have been a credulity-testing plot twist was brought off quite believably in 10-11.
Agreed with the above. It's so nice to have a decisive, amiable and logical lead character with set of balls.

Ah, I see when saw some of discussions and images elsewhere talking about it yesterday (well one day ago now) I assumed 3/20 was the date.

Still, the group has no rules, which causes a lot of problems later on.
I that's how I view it too. He has quite nice ability for get people together and do things.

Well, he's a admin on the site. It's like he is the most influential person in the gang anyway.

Lol he did manage too order over 100 people at ones with only his cellphone and his position as the founder in episode 11.

I would have too say that Mikado has the power too control all the gangs with the touch of his computer :P

Mikado is a role model to to us all.

Remember, any socially inept internet nerd can become a gang leader.

What the heck guys. I'd rather compare Mikado to Azawa from Eden of the east.
The only one up to par with Yagami is Lelouch.


Still Mikado really surprised me this past few eps when i saw him i thought "great another generic wimp'ass character" i'll look forward to his future development.

Mikado being the creator of Dollars came as a huge surprise for me. Then again, it somehow makes sense. Dollars isn't a terrible gang, it's simply an anonymous group consists of people who avoid traditions and authority of all sorts. Still, I don't think Dollars will stop at that, it will continue to evolve. A group with no rule and no leader - it won't end up nice. Even 4chan has mods, you know.


Also, about Mikado, Masaomi, Dollars and Yellow Scarves:

Well since Kida's Mikado's friend I think most likely he would try to stop that from happening since he is happy that he came to Ikebukuro in the first place and make him step out of his depression.

Haha I know that Izaya is the cause of this whole problem, since he's the one that messed up Kida's life and everything, and I do feel sorry for Kida but It just makes me love Izaya even more.

His special voice into was so bland it was fitting for him, made better by the fact whoever he was speaking to walked away. I... can't stop laughing at Mikado's cover song. I really can't XD. The cover does not help.

When I first saw Mikado, I thought he was the main character in general. But of course, in the Narita-verse, there never is a real main character.
