I wasn’t even aware that a sequel was under creation. Durarara!! x2 was a pleasant surprise for me. The original series was not a total adaptation of the light novel source material but the series felt like it had moved towards completion with all major plot points in the first run of the show being resolved back in 2011.
Durarara!! for me always had a confusing cast with numerous characters of varying significance. The cast at times seems diluted; so much so that at the beginning of this season i could not remember all the characters thrown across the screen within the short runtime of the show. The character which always had significance for me however was Celty, the headless rider. Her character ark is what makes the show so entertaining as this mythical creature is continuously thrust into unexpected situations with often charming reactions. Also her ghost phone and bike are in need of mention. On the merit of this Character alone Durarara!! is a must watch.
