    Episode 1 is okay.

    Emilia is my favorite among the new characters so far.

    It was a lackluster episode. The most underwhelming I've watched this week, actually. It felt like this could have been made into a special that didn't air on TV, since it was mostly like a roll call for the entire cast.

    Oh I see, so it indeed is gonna be the LN adaptation.

    I predict the first few episodes may seem "lackluster", same as with season 1.
    Well for me, since I read the LNs, the episode was awesome..! It was a setup of many plot lines (still haven't even introduced all of the characters that were shown, but figures it's gonna take time since there's just a lot), and I don't doubt the many-plotlines-connecting-into-one thing will be done masterfully, same as season 1. I'm so very excited

    Love the opening (although I'm so-so about the song). Carries similar style to season 1's OP2 with the character shots as well as the "speaking/recap" during the OP thing (always loved that so much). A very nice ending as well~~

    Tbh this ep got me waaay more excited for this season than I was before (and I was already excited before).

    To me the episode didn't feel lackluster at all, it was the perfect Durarara vibe we got during the beginning of first season too Granted things started a bit slow but like you said there are MANY people to cover + let's not forget that the anime is over 4 years old by now and they had to remember people about some of the events from past season, to get them back into the story. An overly rushed story would've served nothing here, they can't expect everyone knowing the LN or having rewatched the first season (which I did some days ago, very good choice. You really forget some stuff after all those years xD). In that sense I feel like they did a really good job, so many nostalgic tracks too

    Yeah, the song isn't that great but it's okay. I don't like the OP and ED as much as I did the ones from the first season (song-wise) but they still feel pretty Durarara'ish, so that's good for me =)

    I remember last season used the first 6 or so episodes to introduce us to the different people too and I actually enjoyed that quite a bit, so I won't have any problems if the plot progress is a bit slow. A strong plot needs well-established characters, so I don't really mind that at all, considering a huge part of the fun of Durarara (to me) are all the different crazy and likeable characters.

    Re: Durarara!!x2 Shou

    It seemed about the same as I remember season 1 so far to me. Durarara was pretty chaotic at first, like a bunch of short stories with a common setting rather than one story with a lot of different points of view, it wasn't until about halfway through that things started to come together. Which was the point, I think. Creating a sense of community among peculiar and seemingly unrelated people; then having them rise up together. Although, I remember it being apparent pretty early that Mikado was in center of things. This episode didn't seem as clear on who this story is going to be about.

    So I wonder if this is going to be the same as before or something a little different.

    Episode was good. Only exists to build the hype honestly, so it mirrors a lot about the first season. Looking forward to more.

    Re: Durarara!!x2 Shou

    Me and BAE (xi0) watched this on the couch now.

    ... > xi0

    Episode was OK/Good IMO. I kind of echo Jammin here, feels extremely much like S1. Made me smile when I heard the old OST start playing when Mikado was shown. He looks older than S1 even if it's only half a year. I know nothing of this plot, like with S1, so really clueless after this episode. It could've been faster on some scenes IMO, but overall a strong episode with a very DRRR feel. The only thing lacking was even more old OST, and especially the chatting. Missed that a lot.

    Actually fuck it, the episode was garbage, barely any Shizu in it!! CMON!!!!!!!!!!!

    Kind of "rehash" op/ed tbh. S1 2nd part had a very different OP. Almost feels like they want to "reproduce" the awesomeness by using old formula, not something I'm automatically against. I actually liked it a lot (the OP). Very different, yet very similar. The ED was copy pasta basically, made me smirk in both cases, but especially at the ED. None of the songs really captured me at first listen though. DRRR OP1 made me kreygasm instantly, same with ED1. Maybe these will with time.

    Same.

    However I actually didn't like the first episodes much the first time around. I liked the first, partly second and then 3-5 I was like "what's going on...?" It was difficult to get captured by the story then, so I can relate to people with less knowledge/hype around the series getting these opinions. However DRRR is one of those series you need patience with.

    And yeah you should remember since you watched it some days ago like you said in the same post

    Nice to see that someone who have read the light novels likes the adaptation.

    I think I like Izaya's sisters Have to say the new guys and girls all seem pretty great so far. From the badass guy getting owned by Shizu, to Izaya's sister taking synchronization to another level, to this blue haired boy making fun of the bullies. Quite surprised, I think I'm already sold on all of them and it looks like we're in on a fun ride for the upcoming episode. So far the second season continues to be crazy and fun, couldn't ask for more XD

    Much better than what we saw in the first episode. Though Durarara won't be Durarara without Simon making his appearance first.
    No wonder Izaya is not fond of his own sisters, when they look so damn difficult to manipulate.

    Episode 2.

    Aoba is a combination of Mikado and Masaomi while Kururi is like Anri. And together they seem to be a new generation version of Mikado and Anri. Seeing them using the chat room is nice. And it's interesting to know that Shingen was the former owner of Saika and that he let her 'slash souls of bizarre monsters overseas.'

    So far so good.
