: On Durarara!! and Raven :
Zoicite☆For all I carry are murdered
jyuufish
I watched the first episode of Durarara!! because of crsg and honestly it's a pretty good series, I can see where of course it's going on the random front, I'll probably not watch much more then a few episodes atm but I think it's a very strong series for what it's trying to do. And the intro is very remiscient of Baccano!! which really is definitely a good thing. So I'm somewhat interested and excited to get into it when the time comes for myself and shuufish to watch it. I think I'm mostly intriqued by the black motorcycle rider.. it's very much taking from the legend of the Headless Horseman.. except sans the Pumpkin.

Other then that I don't really know what to post about, I grow a bit of excessive with my Raven-love (since I seriously haven't loved a character this much in a long time. There is loads more I could really say about my love for Raven, I could ramble hours upon hours with him and the whole kicker was that I didn't really think that I'd like him so much when Jennie first pointed out that she was intriqued by this pairing. Now honestly now if one were to stand the two of them side by side and say "pick one to muse", there would be absolutely no choice nor doubt in the matter.. I'd go with Raven all the way. It's funny how characters do that to you, they come in and then tear your life asunder and make your headspace a little bit nicer for it.

Though Sir Schwann "Emos"rain is pretty awesome too.

Now to go and sort through all this new music I've got.. fweeee...

Good! It's my current 'safe to recommend to anyone' anime pick. I too was intrigued by the kitty biker. ♥ The more I watch, the more I like her. Fortunately, it's given more episodes than Baccano was.

Yes fortunately indeed. Yeah, I think that Celty sounds pretty awesome honestly. I lieks her alot!

I loves Durarara! and just finished watching episode 20. If possible, try to avoid becoming spoiled for it so the twists really sink in like they're supposed to.

And Celty = Awesome. They made a headless woman moe, for chrissakes.

That's just the most awesome thing I've heard They've made a headless woman moe for christsakes

The amazing part is that I'm not even joking. There is so much absurd stuff in this show that describing it sounds stupid, but in practice it just works.

Durarara is the only new series I'm currently watching, and I enjoy it a lot. My favorite is Shizuo, but I love that he and Celty have such a great bromance going on! I also enjoy the fact that they use a Celtic mythos in general, which is explained later on.

I think it's directed by the same guy who did Baccano! I checked once and forgot, but I'm pretty sure it's parts of the same team, which is why they're so similar (aside from the fact that one author wrote both the novels the series were based on).

Do you use myanimelist or Anime-Planet to keep track of what you've watched/are watching? There's a lot, particularly newer series, that you and others on my flist talk about that I haven't seen.

I'm actually jyuufish or jyuukoi on my anime list. *heh's*

Durarara is a fun series :D And yeah, I believe the light novel was written by the same person who wrote the Baccano one, so they might be trying to make this one a bit reminiscent of it. The opening song is so catchy, on top of that ♥

Shizuo is still my favorite character, but Celty is awesome too. I used to like Izaya the most, but I discovered that I like Shizzy's personality a bit better. I think he might be one of my top two favorite characters currently, haha...

Yup, same guy wrote both. And in fact there are a few references and one very spoilerific thing that shows that they're in the same universe later on, but the shared universe itself isn't a spoiler.

Yeah, I remember when Isaac and Miria were in the anime, that was pretty awesome! I didn't know it was a shared universe, though, that's really cool.

Is it a novel-only spoiler, or do you think it'll be in the anime? I totally don't mind spoilers, anyway, so you could totally message me and tell me haha

You will looooooooooooove Shizuo! :D

The anime sounds interesting. And I'm glad you liked Raven so much, I hope it goes to my credit that occasionally I have a good idea now and again.

I'm planning to watch both Durarara! and Baccano! as well, and i've heard so many rave reviews about both of those shows. ;D

Durarara is fantastic :)

Welcome to DRRR!! side of things. You're going to love it. I definitely do. :'D

I'm glad you're enjoying Durarara!!! :D
