I so desperately want America to experience the awesome that is Durarara!!
That information has not been officially confirmed yet as far as I know.

I never liked Bacanno so I desided to give this a chance.
Impressions on episodes 1-4

Spoiler:


And the next episodes procceed equally uniteresting until that RETARDED DUO RETURNS MID-SEASON. And that is where I dropped it. Geez, those were the reason I couldn't watch more of 10 minutes of Bacanno and now they are back. Seriously, I gave the series 11 episodes to amaze me and I got Jack from it. In fact, nothing much happened after episode 4. And I hear it becomes far less interesting in the later half. LESS INTERESTING THAN THIS??? DEAR LORD, I won't even bother.

Once again, it's one of those overhyped series that has nothing to offer in the long run. I give it a 6/10 for the whole plot mess but THAT IS THAT. I wasn't entertained at all.

If it wasn't for FMAB, this entire year would be completely shit.

That's very nice of you,I must say.I'm sure you didn't even give it a chance and you saw everything in a bad light.I agree though that the lack of shading on characters is the only major problem of Baccano.Well,you have your opinion and I certainly won't try to force mine down your throat.Maybe you should watch the remaining episodes without a biased eye.

I think half the series is way much of a chance.

Of course I did. There was no shading, the cameraman must be fired, lol. But seriously, the first 4 episodes were plain terrible and I have no idea why so many people liked that parade of random people and lame puns.

You mean Durarara. Baccano didn't had this much.

How can I possibly watch without bias a series which has left me completely disappointed up to half? Even if the second half is better (and I was told it's far worse) it would still not make up for the bad image it gave me.

That doesn't make any sense.

Well anyway, I really suggest you stay away from character driven storylines since it seems they just aren't your thing.

It's not like story driven series are any better. The characters there have little cotrol over their actions and they are all peons to the fate that is the story. I prefer a good balance of both. For example, FMAB has both character driven story AND a very good scenario which doesn't get stuck, drag or does circles for dozens of episodes.

I've also been looking up Durarara videos lately, and been getting "This video has been removed due to a copyright claim from Aniplex".

Based on its actions there and elsewhere, Aniplex clearly hopes to bring DRRR to the US. The probability is very high that DRRR will come to the US. But it's not been officially confirmed yet by anyone that DRRR is coming to the US. Which is the only point my comment was making.

It's not an official announcement, but the people who have gotten screeners of the Gurren Laggan movie report that there are two trailers on there, one for Darker than Black II and one for Durarara. The article over on Mania says that both are fully subbed and are coming to the US. Not sure if this has any bearing on it, but I was looking through old ANN news articles and found that the website for this Gurren Laggan movie had gone up quite a while before the announcement so Aniplex may just be a bit slow in that area.

Although I kinda hope it's not true, I want to hear dub! Issac and Miria again!

That's the "elsewhere" I was referring to. Also, I'm hearing a lot of trauma about the possibility of a sub only US release. Several people have commented that Durarara would make for a good dub. A statement I totally agree with.

Ahhh, I was wondering what you meant there. And I also would love to watch DRRR dubbed oddly enough. I want to re-watch it subbed but I think, for some strange reason, that it could do well dubbed (plus dubs sell more in the US, plain and simple).
And so we return to the waiting game, I wonder if not having the DVDs all out yet makes licensing more tricky.

I feel Funi would be going after Drrr (and DTB 2 for that matter). After all Funi has Baccano (and the 1st DTB). I don't know maybe those series didn't sell so well but it just seems odd to me that Funi wouldn't be interested in Drrr. And obviously if Funi gets it there would be a dub.

But maybe Aniplex does want to take out the middle man again.

IIRC the dudes on ANNCast said something along the lines of if crunchyroll picks something up, it means that Funi skipped on it. Not sure if this is always 100% true though.

Nope, Funimation has gotten Last Exile, Chrono Crusade, and Kaleido Star and those were all on Crunchyroll (abeit they were license rescues). Having it streamed does mean that it's less likely to get licensed now (which seems silly, just have a clause in the contract that streaming rights will go to the R1 distributor and they're losing less money to fansubs there).

I was saying more along the lines of new series, rather than license rescues.

Not entirely correct. It was more along the lines that they're wary of picking up things that are already streaming on services other than their own. Not that they'll skip them. And they've certainly picked alot of Gonzo stuff that's been shown on Crunchyroll (Druaga, Blassreiter, Linebarrels, Strike Witches).

Also, inversely, some titles on Crunchyroll may have been passed on by FUNimation already - the Japanese licensors would prefer to sell to someone like FUNImation who will go for the full extras package on streaming, video rights, packaging assets etc. Part of the reason why Crunchyroll announcements are often so late is that people are holding out till the last minute for a better offer.

Don't know where to post this, so here we go...

I got bored and googled Russian Sushi just now, and low and behold, it is a REAL cuisine style. Guess I shouldn't be surprised, as Japan and Russia are neighbours and neighbouring nations swap food ideas all the time.
Суши По-русски

Wow...that's pretty cool. Looks like they've taken the concept and the aesthetics and applied it to Russian ingredients? (I don't know what Russians normally eat...except from google...) Wonder how it tastes...
