In Tokyo's downtown district of Ikebukuro, amidst many strange rumors and warnings of anonymous gangs and dangerous occupants, one urban legend stands out above the rest—the existence of a headless "Black Rider" who is said to be seen driving a jet-black motorcycle through the city streets. Mikado Ryuugamine has always longed for the excitement of the city life, and an invitation from a childhood friend convinces him to move to Tokyo. Witnessing the Black Rider on his first day in the city, his wishes already seem to have been granted. But as supernatural events begin to occur, ordinary citizens like himself, along with Ikebukuro's most colorful inhabitants, are mixed up in the commotion breaking out in their city.

While we might fancy ourselves one of those murky grey figures in the background, Durarara is out to prove we’re all just as crazy as Izaya.


Sprawling cast of eclectic personalities, supernatural intrigue and cultural exploration of the internet age wrapped up in a slick package.


Parallel stories following some wacky characters all eventually comes together throughout the whole series. Really a crazy but fun ride!


This is so good! NOTHING is linked, but EVERYTHING is linked!


I enjoyed this way more than I thought I would. Well-constructed storylines and characters. Shizuo and Celty are my favs.


Wow… At the start it was meh but then everything was like BANG and everything just clicked together.


The original season of the hit anime of supernatural beings, gang members, & high school students who are interlinked in the city Ikebukuro
