I actually felt bad for Celty there. She was stuck in a room where almost everyone was in there was crazy and were pretty much trolling her.

There was glorious bantering between Namie and Mika, though most of the awesome what Namie being rescued by Shingen. Helps that he's played by Akio Otsuka.

Ladies and gentlemen Durarara is back!

Last time we saw Izaya he is being being hauled by Slon controlled by Kasane's Saika. Lucky for him he has reliable subordinates. He now wants to set up a trap for Kasane.

Kasane's influence goes as far as keeping Shizuo at police custody. Discovering these cops are mind controlled zombies he was about to let lose. Luckily for the cops the Traffic Cop after Celty busted in and warned them. He also told Shizuo to send Celty a message. Given not all cops in the precinct are not mind controlled Shizuo decides to wait it out.

Meanwhile Izaya's associates go and meet Mikado. Aoba warns the twins not to go out of town for their safety. Guess Mairu and Kururi are the only persons he cares about.

Shu Aozaki meeting with Ran Izumi sets his eyes on Dollars for profit.

Celty is losing her sanity over the loons that has invaded her pad. After getting explanations the group elects her as the leader of their guild. As they are all threatened. Celty doesn't want to put on her head on until Shinra passes away in old age but she doesn't want Izaya having it. Deciding to have Nebula keep it for her until then when she finds it.

As somebody at SB said it best.

"My God, Celty's apartment is filled with nut jobs, perverts, perverted nut jobs...and that driver guy."

I think I made a mistake in putting Sloan along with Izaya's faction. Was he part of the Niekawa brood from the start?

Cool new OP song. I like it just as much as the previous season.

Lol I like how Izaya's past actions still influence the story up to this point. Good to see Shinra doing slightly better.

It felt more like a transition episode from previous season and buildup. Very excited to see how the remainder 11 episodes will be like. Celty is so awesome still, can't wait to see her role for rest of the season.

I was disappointed Izaya was rescued by his team this easily. I thought he had been truly outplayed this time around, yet he still managed to overturn the situation.

Scenes at Celty's place were amusing. The best scene, however, was Shingen rescuing Namie with the help of Gas Mask #2 and #3.

Great start for this season, nice OP.
Poor Celty, had to deal with all those people like that. XD

New Opening and Ending were as catchy as always.

For Celty to deal with all these freaks despite being the supernatural being, that is saying something. I was so wishing for her to whip out her scythe and cut that unlikable brocon bitch. Seiji is as weird as always and so is Mika, knowing that the guy is only keeping her around for her "head" and yet is wasting her considerable talents in protecting the jerk.

And I'm sorry, but am I the only one who DOESN'T like the relationship between Celty and Shinra? Even Namie pointed out how stupid it was that Celty just "punched Shinra once" and then immediately forgave the guy for keeping a vital part of her body away from her. Yeah, he's afraid she might leave due to her nature, but he doesn't know that for sure. People can change and it should be her choice. This whole thing reeks of Stockholm Syndrome; she hung out with the guy so much that she came around to his way of thinking. I suppose this is only done to keep supporting one of the many themes in this series: twisted love.

I would pair Celty with Shizuo if it wasn't for the fact that Verona is a heavy contender. But, a man can dream.

Nah your not alone, I fucking despise that pairing. Shinra is just some spoiled fetish-fueled brat and can't let go of something. I don't like him period. Celty would be better off alone or with some person, preferably a nice girl (lols).

I figured this cities normal people were more creepy than it's supernatural ones, for the most part.
