Cool, but it's sure taking awhile. =/

Pretty expected to me.
He did great in Persona 4 as Adachi, so he should do fine..

That would be pretty pointless especially considering that Celty is the closest thing to a MC in this series. Every plot point whether directly or, indirectly involves her at some level. Part of the first half series was about her letting go some of the heavy fixation on head. If anything the more important point is if she really is Valkyrie and how Izaya plans chaos differently this time to achieve his goal.

A spin-off series would be better suited for a deeper look in to the Yellow/Blue Square war involving Masaomi, the Otaku, Izumi and Izaya. Even Shizuo, Izaya and Shinra school days would be great.

^Thanks.

Can't make head nor tails of these screens, but it looks entertaining. Serious lack of twins though, aren't they supposed to be in this episode?

Yeah, if the scans from a couple months ago are to be believed. Surprising enough Kasuka is seems to play role here too.

This looks very promising. What's up with the UFO thing? I'm predicting a hilarious Celty scene.

anyone else buy the DVD volume 1 for Durarara!! Overall rating I give it an 8, pretty good dub series over all is great and I enjoy the story after it starts picking up after ep 6.

Aniplex did a pretty good job with the handling of this imo.

I didnt buy the DVD but I saw the English Dub online.
It was decent, I like a lot of the VA's in the show.
6/10 or a C+ Which ever you prefer.
Slightly above average.

Some of the dub was better than others. The first episode was really difficult for me to listen to because it sounded like Kida and Mikado's VAs, especially, were reading off a page and not really thinking about the line delivery. The cadence and emphasis was off, in the sort of way that happens if you're reading out loud.

But I got used to it, mostly, as the episodes progressed, and some of the VAs were much more satisfactory - Celty's and Simon's, and JYB was great as Shizuo.

(I'm slightly disappointed that they went with "Shizu-chan" and not the "Shizzy" nickname that the first sub I saw used. It's a much more fitting localisation, imo, considering that they decided to have everyone call each other by first name, including the otaku group who no one calls by first name.)

JYB plays Izaya. Crispin Freeman plays Shizuo.

Oops, I was specifically thinking of Shizuo, but I had looked up Izaya's VA to see who it was, because I was thinking he was better than the others, too, so that's probably how I mixed them up. they're both pretty good.

Awesome episode 25. Really, I wouldn't mind another season just to see all the weird happenings in Ikebukuro. Always fun to watch. Also, epic imoutos are epic. Didn't see that coming... those moves almost looked as though on par with Izaya.

I think I disagree cuz Izaya can go par with Shizuo with Speed!
Shizuo is the strongest mean=Power
Celty is Overall and win with SP!

EDIT: DID SOMEONE SAW Isaac in 80's clothes and he's the boss of Yuuhei?

That was a really great episode. So... Durararaish X)
I enjoyed Namie killing Izaya's TV and saying all this "where-the-hell-is-he-oh-like-I-care". And the way Shizuo dealt with Orihara twins. And shaggy Shinra worrying about his darling Celty, as usual. Aaaand Izaya-Shizuo interactions (gosh all the chasing scene was hilarious!), of course.
I realized how I miss them all. Want another season so badly.

My new favorite episode!!

OMG! I LOOOOOVE EP 25!!! It was PERFECT especially for all the Shizaya fans. Their fighting took a HUGE chuck of the latter half. This is going to be an extremely long post cuz I want to post my thoughts on all the characters.

Their fighting was just AWESOME and EPIC and I never knew Izaya could move like that! The parkour scenes were mind-blowing! I wish they showed more of it. It was so fast too keep up. Even tho Shizuo can do parkour too, Izaya still keeps it in his OWN fun style with all the swinging and all.

Izaya is such a loveable prick taunting Shizuo like that (and getting away with it). OMG it just made me love him all over again. : D====

Was it just me or did they made Izaya’s expression very Light Yagami (Death Note)? Throughout the entire episode, all those zoom in Izaya’s shots were faces that I have seen Light made. It creped me out!! Izaya was having a little TOO much fun.

I went 0.0 how Shizuo treated Izaya’s sisters!! How mean!! I thought he had a policy to never hurt girls? I wonder how they got out? The sisters were very cute being all fangirls but that kiss came out of no where. I assume it was fanservice?

Celty and Shinra was just pure awesome. I love how MOE and caring Celty was and how lovely dovey Shinra was. Too bad they didn’t win for #1 couple.

I can’t believe they showed Kida & Saki!! Urgh too MUCH Seiji and I can’t believe Namie destroyed Izaya’s TV!! How is he gonna watch his kiddie shows now? I’m happy they showed Namie but her level of incest is getting too disturbing.

Kasuka wasn’t at all what I expected; I always wondered how he was a great actor if all he does is deadpan. It actually disturbed me seeing him having….Kida’s personality….Mikado and Anri were the same; yay Anri (and Kida) got new clothes!! Simon was funny trying to get on tv so he could advertise his sushi.

Did anyone notice that during the final scene where everyone got the “this is what they are doing now” scenes that they skipped Izaya?!!! Even the cop got a “final” scene!!

Sadly the ending gave me a “no second season” feeling cuz they randomly included a new “Mikado’s character.”

Also thank you so very much Revan21 for helping me find it!

Agreed! No one knows how much I hate that little jerk and his stupid squealing girlfriend >< Just... ugh. I expected them not to show up in this episode, so I can say now they were the only disappointment for me. And yay for Namie! I wish she was less obsessed with her brother though... That's the main reason I read light novel, actually. I love her personality there.
