Since Shingen is responsible for so much, I expected him to have a bigger role in the end. I mean, he used Saika to steal Celty's head. He more or less started it all. He also seems to be familiar with Izaya. >_>;
I guess I was so convinced that Namie would backstab Izaya that I overlooked the possibility that she wanted or still wanted to kill Mikado. Haha.
Oh. I see. The light novel goes way beyond the anime.
