If MAL's synopsis is any indication, then maybe the color gangs vs. DOLLARS vs. Celty will have a massive showdown on a free for all to get her head back. Then you have Seiji, who is in love with the girl. Then there's Mikado and Kida who also saw this girl. Maybe they might end up helping Seiji, then it became

Color gangs vs. DOLLARS vs. Celty+Shizuo vs. Seiji+Mikado+Kida with Izaya screwing everyone in the background and Simon running around stopping fights.
Oww.. I just realize it then!
so, from your statement we can see that Celty is the one who focuses on, and the others helping it. each of them connected.
I remember Baccano! have a simliar of this. aha. am I right?

Baccano! is centered around "something", so yes kinda .

Keep in mind it's all speculations though.

OwO. its really IS Izaya's power! >////< thanks for sharing!

@stupiodget okay! its just a speculation! but since its have the same author, why cant we tell? XD owww.. I finally realize why I love Ryohgo Narita's work. It have many characters, many plots, but its connected!

Yeah, my guess is that the ones who took Celty's head slapped it on Harima's body, and Harima's head is the one being kept in the tank.

Either that, or the scene in Ep03 where Anri mistook neck-injury-girl as Harima was a red herring, or meant something else altogether.

I dont quite get it.
So the one in the tank is Harima, and the one on Harima, is Celty? confuse here

You're right. Maybe the different timelines(?) make it difficuilt to understand that.
Because Harima does have her head at some points in the current episodes and at some she shouldn't(where Anri mistook the "neck-injury-girl" with Harima for example)
Quite distracting, I think.

My guess is that both the head on Harima right now and the one in the tank are Celty's. Just because we see the head in a tank in the opening doesn't mean it still has to be there at this point in the series.

I would hope that Harima's head can be placed back on her body. It does make you wonder how Harima lost her head in the first place though.

Not enough info on Harima's case at the moment, though it's not too far fetched that she was just at the wrong place at the wrong time. I wonder how Anri would react to all this though...

Yeah, like KOapps said. And what Kanon_ said might also be true, though neck-injury-girl and head-in-the-tank have different [apparent] hair colors.

Wouldn't that depend on the solution, lighting and if her hair is dyed after attachement? She obviously not being kept in pure water.

The "head" having a mind of its own could have wanted a change of appearance to match the "new" body.

XD I like this idea so much right now. If there is a showdown it probably won't happen like that but who knows? well, the novel readers do....

I have a feeling Celty is more of a neutral party in alot of this. I dont see her taking down anyone really since her only goal is to find her head but the speculation versus is funny to read.

I think figuring out who the Dollars are is gonna be like figuring out who the Immortals were in Baccano Some were obvious, some werent.

There aren't enough source from the anime to determine that yet, but there maybe possibly probably likely some from what was shown in the OP and episode 3 and 4.

The story is also billed as a "twisted love story" and we've seen a few couples who might fit the bill there. But it's unlikely to become the main plot line, probably just a side one to distract us.

My guess is that:

1. Mika Harima (The one who doesn't have the name in the beginning of the OP that Seiji was looking for back in ep 3 and found her in the end of the episode), well her head could possibly be Selty's. I mean just look at her scar in the neck, it's obvious... or it could be the creator is just trying to mess with us.

In MAL's character profiles when I looked at Mika's, it had a spoiler tag and in top of that it said "Major spoilers, read at your own risk". Doesn't that seem a bit suspicious to anyone?

Discuss.

Also, please answer this anybody because this has been bothering me for a while. This is going back to episode 3.

2. Why did Anri run away in embarrassment when she saw Mika? Isn't Mika's last name Harima? Then Anri said "Sorry, wrong person!" How can that be the wrong person? Didn't she scream out "HARIMA!" in the beginning? That's something that really confused me and is bothering me. Does Mika have amnesia? I need an episode focusing on Mika and Anri's relationship.

You don't have to hide these in spoilers, since it's speculations and on episodes that have already aired and subbed. I'm just going to answer the 2nd part.

I think Anri run away in embarrassment because she saw the back of that girl who was walking around, so she mistaken-ed that person to be her friend. I think it's just a simple case of recognizing the wrong person from the back.

We know nothing about Mika except those ganguro who said Mika used to defend Anri against bullies.

Some speculations and things I feel the need to point out...

- Kida is completely scared of Izaya, that should mean that he knows exactly what Izaya is capable of. Likely firsthand or closely related.
- I'm confused about Anri. Not sure what she's doing. A quiet character, yet she is reaching out to "Harima"/neck-scar girl, and Seiji/class-skipping guy. So not exactly a shy character, but seems to like to give Mikado the cold shoulder. I'm interested to find out what her aims are and her character development.
- Dollars gang, clearly one of the main groups in the series, but still rather unknown. With the mention of people pretending to be Dollar members, is their current reputation due to posers or real members? And with Dollars being the main gang, I'm assuming their focus isn't simple like hang out and act tough. So I'm interested in what is the point of the gang.
- Izaya mentioned that he was in Ikebukuro to see someone, and already did. So who is he referring to, and the second question of why? I assume someone like Izaya wouldn't be going out of his way to just see someone without a good reason.
- Also I'm a bit confused about why Kida was so surprised when Mikado and Anri ran away. What did Kida expect Mikado to do?

Can't wait to see how this entire series go.

I always scared of looking those spoilers.

btw, for Harima speculation, I kinda agree, her neck is like being stitched. Its kinda creepy thought.

@IamTN I think Izaya is looking for more information of people. Like after he met Mikado, he skipping because got his information. my question : did Izaya met Mikado for a reason? I mean, he do really want to met him. Sorry for my english. DX
