Final Thoughts on Durarara

Wow, I can’t believe it’s over! Really, I haven’t enjoyed anything that much in a really long time! Even Spice and Wolf (both seasons) which is one of my top five favourite anime series, I wouldn’t watch every week. I often fell into long buildups of episodes. This happened once with Durarara but I was finishing school so things were a little busy. Still, aside from those two weeks, I waited eagerly for Friday to come so that it would be time for subs.

That really isn’t saying anything about the show, of course. So how did I feel about the show? I felt like I knew every character and was there in Ikebukuro the whole time. Although I usually love series that invoke a great deal of emotion in me, this one did not. It was fascinating and fun. Plus one of the most original things I’ve watched in who knows how long. That is why I love it. That is why it made it in my top five list in under ten episodes. It seemed too fun to be good for me.

I didn’t really like the ending, though. I thought the series was flawless up till that point. I do hope there is another season because my favourite character didn’t even appear (>: Mairu~). I’m not that familiar with the novels but I do think there would be a lot of ground to still be covered. Akane? Vorona? how many other interesting characters did we not see yet? It might not flow well, and I’ll be sad for the lack of Anri but I would faithfully watch another season. And perhaps, in due time it shall be so.

    I’m hyped for a second season too this was my favorite show this season, and the end also left me starving because it seems like all of it was build up for something even more awesome we won’t see unless there’s a second season.
    I love you and your blog and your music reviews btw, it’s such a shame that I only found about it recently.
