Durarara!! - Episode 11 (+ New OP and ED News)


Ohmygod.... this episode shows that even modern (or earlier/previous rather, since it's set like 6 years ago) technology can be so incredible.... and even ordinary people could be badass.... oh Mikado got me so thrilled~

[ SHE'S ANGRY (SELTY) ]

I'm so relieved that it didn't take too many freakin' episodes just in search of the annoying girl. She was found quite quick... and I'm happy that it's our Dollars peeps so Mikado was able to track her. He gives Selty what she wants and she did for him what he asked for: just be badass xD LOLz
All she asked is the name... which is the same as hers. I guess she couldn't cut off that head, but wants her existence known... and she didn't give a damn when the public saw her headless self. Oh people... they took pictures first before running away xD
I knew it... she could be heard! Her voice can be heard and they heard her but since she doesn't talk even those who know her weren't able to recognize her at once. I was amused at the part when Shizuo realized it was her... the cigarette fell xD
Oh yeah, of course how she went down the building was really AWESOME!!!! Stunts like that always rock~ But it's actually a horse, making it even cooler xD *prefers horses over motorcycles*

[ HE'S ANGRY (MIKADO) ]

Namie to Mikado: Could it be that in today's world, people like you are the most dangerous?
(Goddess, you are so right on him~ DON'T UNDERESTIMATE "GENTLE" PEOPLE.... ESPECIALLY IF HE'S A NARITA CHARACTER xD)
Mikado doesn't like what Yamie's doing and wants her to turn herself in. He's being underestimated though and his ideals were made fun of.
Mikado's a nice guy. I don't think he wants to be a hero exactly.... he just wants peace, order, and harmony. In this chaotic world, what he wants is something idealistic. I don't care if he does hero drama speech (which was awesome even pretty corny: "I LOVE HAPPY ENDINGS"), as long as he actually does something about it. In other words, he's not just all talk but he actually does something. He began by encouraging people to do simple good deeds like picking trash or cleaning... now he has gone to entirely different level: going against criminals involved in human trafficking.
Anywayz, Mikado seemed to have some attitude switch. Hmmm.... I don't see it exactly as that... it's more of he's showing his true self. He is still Kida's pure pure boy.... but he's one BADASS pure pure boy xD He sees something undesirable, and he frankly says he's not happy with it. I love his angry tone. For someone who's supposed to be weak and meek, he DARED to use such a tone and talk like that to my dangerous goddess. He has guts. He's no scaredy cat. He could be really dangerous and intimidating when pissed off. I LOVE THAT!
Oh I really love it when characters turn out to be cooler than what they appear to be. I already love Mikado on his dopey self.... I love him even more for this kind of badass attitude.
But come to think of it, ALL DRRR!! CHARACTERS ARE BADASS!!!! (Fine, maybe not all.... *really can't stand Seiji and Miwa*)

[ DOLLARS (FOUNDER) ]

So it's finally revealed in this episode that Mikado is actually one of the founders of Dollars. His co-founders seemed to have given up after the bad fake rumors about the group. Well, since Mikado continued it... I believe it's clear to assume that he's indeed the leader of the group.
In this episode he has been communicating with Dollars members through the message boards... and he also managed to tex all members.
I find it amazing that even though he's attacking Namie and her men, he still managed to have that attack done without any bloodshed at all. He just made them all stare at someone who's not looking at their phone. That got Namie and her men so disturbed xD It's simple... YET CREEPILICIOUSLY AWESOME!!!! Oh wow... even simple things can be this amazing.

[ DOLLARS (MEMBERS) ]

I find it awesome that a lot of the Dollars members are just ordinary citizens. Mikado managed to have ordinary citizens do something amazing... and even go against dangerous people. SEE! WE CAN BE AWESOME EVEN IF WE'RE INCAPABLE OF KICKASS FIGHTING!
It's also so awesome that it appears that a lot of the main characters are Dollars members! Funny that BOTH Shizuo and Izaya are part of Dollars xD Bwahahahaha! I want Mikado to make them work together~

[ LOVABLE IDIOTIC COUPLE (WALKER and ERIKA) ]

Of course the Dollars members that we already know have also attended the first ever group meeting. It's cute though that even if it appears that the people that are crowded there are all Dollars members, Erika was still wondering which of them is part of their group xD Haha!
And ah, anyone else noticed Erika's and Walker's message alert tones?
"You have mail, young master." and "Wanna try to die once?"
THEY ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!! xD

[ LOVABLE IDIOTIC COUPLE (ISAAC and MIRIA) ]

THESE TWO ARE PART OF DOLLARS TOO??? I AM NOT SURPRISED! LOLz!!!!!
AND THEY'RE IN SHINSENGUMI COSTUME!!! LOLzzzz!
Yes, it's like as you say Miria, it's amazing. SUGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOI xD
THEY'RE THE SAME AS EVER!!! I LOVE THOSE TWO xD
OH I MISS BACCANO! DAMNIT I'LL FAINT FROM TOO MUCH DELIGHT IF FIRO, CLAIRE, LADD, and GRAHAM ALSO MAKE AN APPEARANCE xD

[ DRRR!! TECHNOLOGY (LOL) ]

Yahoo = Yoohoo
Windows = Mindows
Amazon = Amezon
Youtube = Yo! Tube
I think there were more... but I can't recall them at the moment (either that or I'm not familiar with the original site). I'm so amused with the name changes xD

[ DRRR!! TECHNOLOGY (POWER OF THE INTERNET) ]

I really find it incredible that the show uses the technology that we have right now in very badass ways xD It doesn't have to be in a futuristic setting, our era's/generation's technology can already be that incredible if you know how to use it xD
Websites... message boards... social networking... chat... mobile tex messaging.... internet.... all these everyday common things in real life could actually be used in stories that deal with supernatural phenomenon and gang/evil-organization wars.
Oh I love technology~

[ SHET YOU LOVER BOY xD ]

Shinra: Marry me.
HE JUST PROPOSED O_O
Selty's reaction.... damn, this makes me wish she has a head.
But she's still thinking about it so lovingly at the rooftop.... squeee~
OH BE 100% CANON ALREADY xD

[ OH SHIZUO~ ]

Shizuo: "What is life?" "Why do people live?" Someone asked me that, and I beat him within an inch oh his life
Lessons learned:
1) Don't go pathetically poetic infront of Shizuo xD Especially if you're an outlaw. Haha
2) Being honest to Shizuo with as simple as admitting that you're not listening to him can also piss him off xD LOLz Saimon~

[ SHE IS STILL MY GODDESS ]

My goddess has a point when she's considering Mikado's ideals as something foolish. But ah well, as if her reasons aren't that foolish either. Humans can be such fools yet they're interesting (damn, I feel like Izaya xD)
I don't think her brother deserves all the things she has done for him. And he totally doesn't deserve to still be bathing with her even in their present ages O_O *just saw latest chapter of the manga* Seiji's one lucky bastard, damnit. Undeserving lucky bastard. I guess he's already used to naked women because of his sister.... and she definitely has a very sexy body~

[ JUST DIE SEIJI ]

Uggghh... he goes "Only I can protect her" again... so he escapes from his sister's safety cell... and he ran after Mikado.
OH MIKADO BE CAREFUL!!! (Or Izaya, go rescue him again xD LOLz)

[ NEXT EPISODE ]

Izaya has Selty's head now.... WTF!!!! O_O (ah, I already knew becaues of spoilers though)
Anywayz, that means more Izaya screentime next episode. YESSSSSSSSSSSS~

[ NEW OP and ED ]

(Thanks to Mimiko-chan for this update~ Info from official site btw)
It's not yet 100% certain that this will premierre on episode 12, but official site has announced the singers of the new OP and ED themes!
Opening theme is by ROOKiEZ is PUNK'D with the song Complication. Ending theme will be by ON/OFF but the song hasn't been announced yet.
I'm not familiar with the OP theme singers but the name of their group implies that the new OP theme will be PUNKish xD And I love ON/OFF music... most likely it'll be some cool r&b song like the current one. Kyaaaa! Whoever picks the artists for the OP and ED themes, he/she has taste xD I look forward to these!!! YAY!!!

Looking forward to ON/OFF.

Yeah, I watched this same episode earlier this morning and I was like O.O up till the end, Izaya was so stuck up and enjoying himself, and the Yagiris are close to losing their heads (no pun intended).

ISAAC AND MIRIA. How they've gotten from the US to Japan, I'll never know. =_=

Yukihito said...

Ah, I'm lagging behind on Durarara!! again. Your posts always leave me super hyped for the new episodes though. I'm so glad I picked this show to watch this season~ *resolves to have some Durarara!! time this weekend* XD

Whoa! Isaac and Miria~ I'm having Baccano nostalgia.

And awesome that ON/OFF will do the ED theme. I love ON/OFF music, it's so catchy :O

I lol'd at Erika's ringtone. I've heard that ringtone before and I think I have it in one of my CDs.

"ISAAC AND MIRIA. How they've gotten from the US to Japan, I'll never know. =_="
---> they are thieves and they like cosplay. Explains the money... and why they're in Japan? xD

@ Yukihito
I am so happy that I have motivated you to watch it xD So go catch up on it~ Hehehehe
I agree that ON/OFF music is so catchy xD I dropped VK but still listen to its music 'coz of ON/OFF xD Hehe *and the singers satisfy my Kiryuu twins fetish xD*

@ bsie
I have a feeling it's a line from an anime (they are otakus after all xD)... but I can't recall what series x_x

@ H0shi
"if 12 eps covers the whole vol.1 of the light novels, will they able to reach it until volume 7?"
from what I remember the whole series will reach until volume 6 only. the special episode in dvd vol. 7 will feature a part from the 7th volume of the light novel though
