To be honest I'd rather see him fall off a bridge. Just somehow I haven't liked the guy from the start. Think there are just people in the world you just know you are not going to like very much. Not that he's devoid of positive qualities, just that they get twisted and used for different purposes.

Won't happen.
I am sick of flat typical shounen characters.
And i am not a moralfag, therefore Izaya just hit the spot right on.

I am so eager to see what he is planning, how he is manimpulating each and everyone, ahaha.

It's your right to be a troll. Just don't expect to not end badly.

Seriously, "moralfag"? What are you doing outside 4chan?

how funny I like him for the start, I find him rather interesting. I Like watching Shizou and Izaya fighting. XD

Oh I agree he is twisted but he is twisted in a very amusing way. I guess in my perspective a character doesn't have to be someone I would like as a person to enjoy as a character.

I didn't like him at first because I thought he was going to be the typical "dark" character. Instead he is absolutely hilarious in how unashamedly bad he is. He is always having so much fun and I have to admit (even though I don't like how he tortures poor Shizuo) I am having so much fun watching him.

The way he keeps playing around and manipulating people really makes him someone crazy. Why did he do what he did to Shizou? Also, is he really human? I wouldn't be surprised, what with Celty's existence already.

Izaya makes Durarara!! A much more interesting series. He is the catalist that moves the plot along and he makes me laugh.

Is it me or does Izaya have a great interest in Mikado?

^^ In my opinion, Izaya has a great interest in anything humans do. But since he came to see Mikado specifically in ep 10, I'd say that, yes, Mikado is one of humans he's focusing on at the moment.

Ah, but I did write something about the tread. Izaya is a troll, to the point of putting himself in unnecessary risk, for nearly no material gain. The same way Shizuo couldn't help going berserk even if he doesn't want to. Both are compulsive and a victim of their own lack of self control.

By the way, you will need higher status to negative-rep, not like you would ever earn it. Trolls will be trolls.

I have mixed feelings about Izaya. He's a great character with complexity and deep layers but I always feel like the author is too fond of him that he gives Izaya too much power over other characters and that makes Izaya a bit too overpowered for my taste. Not to mention less chance for character development too. Then, again, Izaya is the main antagonist after all.

I don't know what I should think of him. Characters like him usually end up badly. You see, he has the upper-hand since the beginning and rise too far above everyone... too far that it can be predicted that whenever the story takes the twist-and-turn, he's going to fall real hard. But then, I don't know what to expect from Narita Ryogoh. Maybe he can find a way for Izaya to remain bad-ass throughout the story.

Speaking of Izaya, I was reading up on fragment translation of novel 4-6, and fell in love with his twisted twin sisters Kururi and Mairu.

Izaya is well among the most fascinating characters in anime/comics/novels. His motivation is as solid as a molten rock. Each change brings about fire anywhere it flows into and keeps people on the move. I can't imagine a Durarara!! without him ...and Shingen.

Orihara Izaya perfectly represents an outsider of the human race that uses people in his "game". Rules does not apply to him, so does a set of moral truth. He does things on his own behalf, things that will benefit him and make his life more enjoyable. He often takes pleasure in putting humans to often difficult and deadly tests. In the end, the only things that are left in Orihara's path of a couple of wasted game pieces and a elated grin.

He's an asshole at times, but other times he's an asshole in a very adorable way.

I want him to stomp on more cellphones and boyfriends of those cellphone owners. *_*

I also like his jacket. I want one!

Moral Fag is in Natsu from Fairy Tail. Like many other things, you can only take friendship so far.

am i the only one who thinks that the actual main character of this series is supposedly izaya? Hes at the center of everything, and basically every event is somewhat related to him.

There's no single main character in this show. That's just how the story works.
