I doubt it, it'd feel out of place in Durarara. Though I certainly wouldn't mind seeing that
Aside from the fanservice, I can think of a few comedy gold moments in such an episode. For now, you'll have to make do with that nice shower scene at the beginning of this ep, fufufu...

Well that was a lot revealing of what Shingen did. He seems the only person who understand Izaya's game right now.

It's official, Shingen is my favorite character in this show now. I just adore his wacky personality, and what it does during the interaction scenes.

Also i found it pretty awesome that Izaya poured out a cup of tea for Celty.

I definitely enjoyed this episode quite a bit. Everything felt a little more interesting than the prior episode, and I felt that the pace was a lot better than usual, reminiscent of some of the past episodes before the end of the first arc.

I don't think I've actually laughed at an episode of Drrr, or any anime episode for that matter, as much as I did this one:

Spoiler:


What really made the episode great was that it had essentially everything I would want out of a good slice of this series: comedy, plot/character development, and some serious storyline information that I haven't gotten spoiled for me yet, which is a first.

A couple things here, I haven't read the light novels so these speculations are all mine alone. There's a lot of speculation here, unless you haven't seen the episode I would really like you to look at what I'm thinking here

Spoiler:


Also, the elevator scene was one of the funniest things I think I've ever seen. I thought Shinra's dad would be creepy and malevolent, sort of a stereotypical bad guy character, but the way that he's been presented so far is much much better than what I would have ever imagined, he's just so awesome.

I think this was an interesting episode with lots of information given. but it seemed slow since there was little action

Good episode, nice balance of humor and mystery. What peaked my interest was the discussion between Shingen and Izaya. At this point I just want to know Izaya's end game. It seems he wants to provoke a full-scale struggle between all his pieces (Yellow Scarves/Dollars/Dullahans/Slasher(s)/Celty's Head?) and have Celty summon Valkyries or unearth some greater plane of existence for himself? (if I read the subtitles correctly)

So-so episode for me. Shingen made it enjoyable. I adore the elevator scene. There seems to be more layers hidden in that goofy personality of him, though. If anything, he may even be the only character who can fight on par with Izaya, mentally of course, though I don't think he bothers much about Izaya's plan to use Celty's head.

Not many Anri scenes as I had hoped. I want more of her. Also, how could she get away from that scene in the last episode only to get attacked again anyway? Many things still left unexplained. Damn cliffhanger!

Shingen is bad-assssssss. Oh man that was a great laugh watching him in action. Shingen is an awesome daddy. XD

His high brain-power seems quite obvious though. The "accidental" blurting out of his "plan" to Celty is obviously to bait her along his and Izaya's game plan.

I do however speculate that near the end of the show, there may be some backstabbing involved. I can imagine someone's going to be greedy when the time for Valkyria comes. Just a wonder who is gonna act first.

Now, off to work again... *SIGH*

You know, I can watch a "Kishitani" family sitcom with just Shingen, Celty and Shinra and not get bored at all. Shingen really is a fun character, best Mad Doctor/Scientist in awhile, terrible father though. He works for Nebula too huh?

This episode was surprising informative, with the reveal of "Saika" we at least have an origin point of the Slasher(s) as well as the chat spammer still lots of questions. If Saika is actually a cursed katana that the Slasher uses, why then have 2 of the 3 Slashers seen wielding a Dagger and a Kitchen knife? How does Haruna and Anri (going by Celty's monologue) fit into it? Izaya's comment after speaking with Shingen also points that the Slasher figures into his schemes.

I also feel rather sorry for Shinra, it seems he didn't know Saika and the sword his father used were one and the same until recently, and there's still some emotional baggage leftover from the whole Yagiri/Dollars affair. Atleast he was upfront with her this time, now what happens is pretty much upto Celty.

I didn't realize it until I watched the subs, but Celty releases more smoke when she blushes. That's a nice touch.

Creepy teacher hinted at it when he first met Anri, I don't remember the exact sentence but it was something like: "I've heard about you. I'm going to take good care of you too *pedo smile* "

I didn't realize the attacker at the end was the reporter, but looking closely, it does seem to be the case. Same hat and coat. I have no idea why he would want to attack Anri though. How many slasher does that make now? There's the one with the sword that attacked Celty which I'm sure was Anri, the one with the knife and long hair (Haruna?) and now the reporter. And the one who attacked the 3 stooges is possibly yet another one. Now that it's been confirmed that the red eyes aren't just a "special effect" for the audience, it seems likely that Saika can possess several people at once. That also explains how Saika can spam all those message boards during the time of the incidents.

Shingen is absolutely hilarious, but he still seems pretty evil. He basically suggested that Izaya hurt the people close to Celty, and thus his own son. Of course, that's something Izaya already planned to do...
