Um, I believe those are two separate characters. Shinra Kishitani (a doctor) is the man who appeared in the lab coat in the OP but the other man (whose handle I forgot, the girl mentioned it when they met) appears to have been offed by Celty and a gang member too.

2 separate chats imo. First chat started day before but continued the day after the events transpired when Nakura (info broker) using a female avatar entered the chat room and started talking about the missing girls and tried to get Mikado to meet him offline. Nakura had to catch up in the thread. That's why Nakura keeps mentioning Dotachin with Mikado wondering who that person was. Dotachin was the guy who got hit by the scythe at the end imo.

24 would certainly be nice though.

I think the chatroom is more like some kind of message board, because the "logs" can be read by everyone, so really the entire "chat" is more or less continuous.

Spoiler for First Chat:


Spoiler for Second Chat:

There was no indication whether he had just joined at that point or had stopped idling.

You might be right about that. Yet, the point stands that there has to be a skip in the conversation time frame based on the other things I typed.

Definitely going to be following this one. I also found the ED strangely addicting, even though I generally don't go for this sort of music.

Both the OP and ED are excellent.

However, though Baccano's OP made it easy to remember the characters, it's gonna be harder with Durarara, since its character designs, albeit quite appealing, just aren't as distinct.

I just watch the first episode and its good. Just what I expected though it didn't exceeded what I initially thought of it. But still good.

Ah, in the novel it's pretty clear that the chats are over two different days, some day before Mikado comes to Ikebukuro and then the day that he does. But the chatters all seem to be the same for both days, Mikado and then two others who are familiar with the area. And I must say, these chats are so much easier to understand in the anime, color coordination really straightens out whose talking to who.

Just got around watching episode 1 and it really does seem like a series I would enjoy. The characters introduced so far seem pretty likable and the setting has that nice, modern feel that I like. Has all the makings for a fun series.

It's probably been asked before, so forgive me, but what's the official spelling of this series? Dhurarara!! or Durarara!!? From the official website, it seems like it's Durarara!! Is that right?

I think they're very distinct, though if you're having a hard time, just label a character's name to their clothes.

& regarding the phone chat, it was on my second watch that it seemed more like each chat was separated over a few days, especially the one regarding the black motorcycle. So i'm pretty much agreeing with stuopidget's earlier post.

I'd like to know that too. It doesn't seem to be a common name, but I don't see what's weird with it either x_x

You're definitely not alone but I'm listening to BOTH. Can no longer count how many times they've played *they're in continuous playing. Only those tracks xD*

Anime and manga uses Durarara!! but novel romanizations use Dullalala. The latter seems more appropriate because of the dullahan reference, but majority use the spelling with the "R's". In other words, any spelling would be okay.

If he does end up as your favorite character, then join me in Izaya worshipping xD LOLz

Actually Izaya is REALLY an uncommon name in Japanese. So far I never encountered Izaya (let alone a kanji for "Iza" compound unless I make that up) in any list of possible name readings.

Notice that you can't really read Izaya's first kanji (臨) as "Iza" in any ordinary way Although I would love for someone to explain this more properly than I am...

Hmmm . . . then maybe what made his name weird is because it's THAT uncommon? Maybe there's no such a name at all even o_o

Weird character with a weird name . . . how does he keep on delighting me xD Hahaha!

As you may see in the thread title, it's licensed by CR = Crunchyroll. So you can definitely see it there

Don't make it just a "high chance". Consider him your favorite male already :P His presence is already awesome. His one line in the first episode is enough to make the episode's awesomeness level go much much higher. Mwahahaha!



Okay, I better shut up before people get scared of my Izaya obsession. Hahahahah!
