somebody has to do it
Before even starting Durarara I managed to finish up Baccano in hopes of seeing what I was about to get this season. To say the least I was fairly pleased. If I’d have to define the show in a few words I’ll have to use the terms cool and messy in the same sentence. So after watching Baccano it went without saying that was expecting something similar of that sort in Durarara.
So far it isn’t what I expected to see from the same creator. The second episode wasn’t exactly thrilling as it was mostly recap of the first episode with a couple of new scenes and some other scenes that were better explained by a narrator. Surprisingly, the second episode provided more dramatic and serious tones that I was expecting this show to have. This isn’t necessarily something I dislike but it isn’t exactly what I was expecting to see here either.
Durarara is still starting very slow but seeing that this is a 24 episodes series, I suppose that they have enough time to build up and get the story going around next episode(s). I suppose they’ll keep on quickly introducing new characters and developing their stories in future episodes. As we saw in the second ep, a more crucial character who happens to be far from normal made his appearance. In any case, I’m hoping to see that Durarara manages to keep going without losing the interest of its audience. Based on what I saw Durarara is already providing a different type of treat that I previously had.
