Ryūgamine Mikado is a boy who longs for the exciting life of the big city. At the invitation of his childhood friend Masaomi, he transfers to a school in Ikebukuro. Masaomi has warned him about people he doesn't want to cross in the city: a champion fighter, an informant, and a mysterious gang called "Dollars." Nervous from Masaomi's stories, Mikado witnesses an urban legend on his first day in the city, the Headless Rider astride a black motorcycle.

From then on, the existence of supernatural cases and a gang called the Yellow Scarves will rise to the surface, and Ikebukuro will pushed to the breaking point.


Ah yes the show this website was inspired from! Durarara!! is an anime adaptation of the novel by the same name by Ryohgo Narita (also author of Baccano!). Its first season was 24 episodes long and first aired in 2010.

Its second season, Durarara!!x2, will be split into three cours. The first one titled "Shou" is scheduled for January 2015, the second one "Ten" is scheduled for July 2015 and the third "Ketsu" for January 2015 (see the kishoutenketsu narrative structure).

Everyone seems to recommend Kuroshitsuji's anime and I'd like to give my opinion and say the first anime was horrible. The first and second season were nothing like the manga -- which is probably my favorite on-going manga because of it's depth and the obvious amounts of love that goes into detail and writing. The anime's plot went from nowhere to lost in a void of nothingness and the writing was so weak it pretty much collapsed on itself with the biggest cop-out ending I've ever seen.

If you're gonna watch an anime for Kuro, watch the recent Book of Circus, it follows the Circus Arc from the manga and adapts it accurately and wonderfully in my opinion. Also keep an eye out for the Book of Murder OVA that adapts the Murder Arc from the manga, given how accurate Book of Circus was, this one will probably be just as good (I haven't seen it yet).

Also allow me to criticize Another by saying, the plot is slow-paced as fuck, the climax of the series is the only part where the plot actually begins to move along. If you're willing to be frustrated yet hooked into watching the next ep with that "but what happens next" feel then go for. If not this anime probably isn't for you. Also if you're not a fan of gore then this anime is definitely not for you.

If you're looking for a dark and gorey anime, try to on-going Death Parade, not too gorey yet (or even episodes) but I see so much potential in this anime, storywise and pretty much for everything else too. Just looks really good so far.

I'm finishing NANA today and looking forward to watch more similar animes, 'cause almost everything I've ever watched was only seinen and shounen (I'm a 19 year old girl lol)...
By the way, are there other NANA fans here? :)

Worst Anime Characters (500)

1 Name: Kerra-Chan : 2012-06-23 11:20 ID:4I+hMJCB [Del]

I have not seen this yet so......What is the worst anime character you've ever seen and why? Mine are

Sakura-Naruto (She annoys me to no end with her liking of Sasuke for no good reason. She treats Naruto badly and can't really do anything)

Karin-Naruto(Same as Sakura except for the the Naruto thing)

Donzo-Naruto (I....I just really dislike him)

498 Name: Haru : 2015-01-31 06:48 ID:NAFapv17 [Del]

for me its Niijima Haruo...its annoying enough that he always claims to be the strongest, but in the end all he does is just running away... and that creepy face of his...

499 Name: Anonymous : 2015-01-31 07:08 ID:z3Zb3yBo [Del]

Hate all same characters, like typical tsundere, moe,

500 Name: Sora : 2015-01-31 09:45 ID:9m0BxgWL [Del]

Sasuke Uchiha, he absolutely failed. Also Momo Hinamori from Bleach - I can't stand her at all.

Noragami (73)

Noragami is an anime from the 2014 winter season, produced by Studio Bones, licensed by Funimation, and consisting of 12 episodes and one OVA. If Bleach and Soul Eater fucked and birthed this, Beyond the Boundary and Binbougami Ga raised it, sent it off to Monogatari High where it graduated to attend Flowers of Evil University...

yeah, this is the resulting show.

Main character Yato is a stray god of war, accomplishing little tasks to help people in order to collect enough yen (he only charges 5 per task, so this will take a while) to get his own shrine. Until that happens, he wanders homeless, advertising where he can and defeating abstract creatures called phantoms - blobs of evil will. By combating them with a Regalia (shinki) - a loose spirit from a dead human that can turn into a weapon, gods can accomplish the destruction of phantoms and help the community, who otherwise can't see them but...

well, it works.

So Yato finds a new Regalia named Yukine who's a bratty pain in the ass most of the time and tries to find a cure for this girl Hiyori's becoming a half-phantom after an accident. They go around places and talk to other gods and Yukine and Hiyori start to realize they've gotten themselves into a larger mess than they originally thought. Thanks a lot, based Yato.

Yahari no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru (10)

This romantic comedy revolves around an antisocial high school student named Hikigaya Hachiman with a distorted view on life and no friends or girlfriend. When he see his classmates talking excitedly about living their adolescent lives, he mutters, They're a bunch of liars. When he is asked about his future dreams, he responds, Not working. A teacher gets Hachiman to join the volunteer service club, which happens to have the school's prettiest girl, Yukinoshita Yukino.

This happens to be one of the greatest spice of life anime I've ever seen. For some reason, I find this anime quite closer to reality. Where social hierarchies and feudal society exist. This anime is still ongoing but surely when you watch episode 1 you'll be interested and crave for more on how the MC's react to this world which is cruel. Many people can relate to the MC which makes this anime give quite an impact to the world of otakus.

Oh aaaand lastly, find the trap >:D

10 Name: Ryuushi : 2015-01-31 01:45 ID:8/ObJYZ+ [Del]

I love this anime. I can really relate to Hachiman in some scenes specially when he is stating his opinion about what he sees in the world.

Hachiman X Yukino is my OTP :3 <3
