Durarara!! x2 Shou – 03

January 28, 2015

Durarara x2 Shou - 03-01Later than planned, but couldn’t be helped.  Anyway this episode was mainly concerned with the identity of the ‘Hollywood’ serial killer and mostly takes place at the same time as the events of the previous two episodes.  I do love how Durarara!! has so many things happening simultaneously – inevitable when you have such a large cast I suppose.

Durarara!! x2 Shou – 02

January 18, 2015

Durarara x2 Shou - 02-05Well I couldn’t not blog this sequel now could I?  Opening up this draft had me awash in a sea of nostalgia – Drrrr!! was the very first series I started to blog five years ago!

Anyway, this episode continues the work of the first episode in that it is mostly concerned with introducing the new characters and reacquainting us with old favourites.  Considering I didn’t have time to rewatch the first season of Drrr!! prior to starting this season, I’m pretty pleased the show is taking the time to do this.  All the familiar faces and places also serve to remind me why I loved this series so much – this episode was a lot of fun.
