Durarara!!Reviewed by TheCritic

Welcome to Ikebukuro.
City of mystery, color gangs, strange people in a strange town and.... is that a flying vending machine!?
The story of Durarara!! follows an Irish dullahan named Celty as she searches for her head in Japan. Not only does the story mainly focus on Celty, there are many subplots making the story of all the characters connect. I am told that Durarara!! is very similar to it's sister series, Baccano! but I have yet to confirm that.
The characters and settings are beautifully drawn. As you watch, it gives you the feeling of being in Ikebukuro, Tokyo, Japan.
The main theme songs are nice to listen to as are the voice actors. I enjoy the dubbed version of the anime but I have heard sound clips of the Japanese. Perhaps I will get back to you on that.
The characters of the show are rather interesting. The protagonist, Celty is headless and her love interest is a doctor that she lives with. Each character has a distinct personality. Mikado, the shy and meek one, Masaomi, the perverted playboy with a dark past, Anri, the big-busted shy girl, Shizuo, the short fuse and Izaya, the manipulative bastard.
The wonderful blend of characters makes the show interesting for they keep you guessing on what will happen.
Overall, Durarara!! was entertaining to watch. It is very interesting to say the least. The characters make it interesting with great art, intertwining the stories and characters together. I am a big fan of it and hope to check out the sister series, Baccano! as soon as I can. I recommend this anime to a friend if they would like a taste of something different.
