This thread is for talking about Durarara!!, a new show by the team that brought you Baccano! based on the light novel series by Narita Ryohgo. It began airing in Winter 2010 and will continue to air in Spring 2010. Since it is currently airing, we are watching it as it airs together and convening in this thread to discuss it. Since we are cheap, we will be watching the free, delayed airing on Crunchyroll.
What this means is, if you are not watching the Crunchyroll free stream and are one week ahead, you are not to mention anything about it at all, even the fact that you are watching it at all.

Well, that's the thing- they noticed that the person hacking into the boards somehow manages to go from proxy server to proxy server almost instantaniously. If it is a psychic attack, then this wouldn't be much of a problem either. As to why she's attacking the boards at the same time, though? No clue.ich1990 (post: 1389076) wrote:I am not familiar with Kanon, but I think I get the gist of what you are talking about.
I actually wondered if it was Anri myself, but have become less convinced after this most recent episode thanks to the chat room messages. If what you are suggesting is true, then when she is bullied she not only cuts people up, she simultaneously uses an iphone or something to hack into and troll message boards.
True about the attacks. I think I'll stick with it until there's a definate explanation, or it really becomes clear what's going on, though.But that still doesn't explain why she attacks others even when she isn't being threatened, or why that guy in the subway isn't in a hospital yet.
One can hope, I guess.
I think by this point we've established the van guys as immortal side characters. They'll always be around, but they'll probably never be the most important people around, if you follow.Mr. Hat'n'Clogs (post: 1391316) wrote:So Team Van didn't get as much screentime as I would have hoped for, but they made up for it by ramming the poor reporter guy and saving Anri.

The third light novel comprises mostly Kida's story, and along with it Saki, who you can expect to see more of then, but no, likely not right now.Mr. Hat'n'Clogs (post: 1391316) wrote:Saki's relation to Izaya or Kida still hasn't been explained, but I'm guessing that will have to wait until we get to the third light novel. Not much Mikado or any Shingen in this episode, unfortunately, but it can't have episode eleven every time. I'm also wondering if the yakuza princess that befriends Shizuo will show up before the anime is over, or if she's in the fourth light novel.
Ah, okay, they're more like the Gandors, at least for The Rolling Bootlegs.Fish and Chips (post: 1391319) wrote:I think by this point we've established the van guys as immortal side characters. They'll always be around, but they'll probably never be the most important people around, if you follow.
You have no idea.
The third light novel comprises mostly Kida's story, and along with it Saki, who you can expect to see more of then, but no, likely not right now.
And Akane the ten-year-old yakuza princess and part-time assassin is, unfortunately, reserved for whenever they decide to adapt the fifth novel.

I also find it interesting that DRRR vol. 1 of the light novel still sells enough to break the top whatever charts and has sold, in total, much more than double any of the other volumes on that chart.
