[The story so far in DRRR!!!]
Simon: I came by to narrate the plotline because I don't have any appearances lately.
Simon: I'm jacking the plotline.
[Mikado bumped into a young girl as he was running toward the sound of the black bike.]
[That girl was being chased by the black bike, for some unknown reason.]
[Mikado grabs the girl's arm and starts running.]
Simon: Just kidding! That shop up there is imaginary!
Simon: What will happen to Mikado and the girl? / Find out on the next page. / I'm done with work for today, so I'll go read it too.
[The story continues on the next page!!]
[The basics of fliers. Hand them out as if you're giving a letter to a friend.]

[The black bike speeds through Ikebukuro again today.]
Certy thought: I didn't find my head today either, // even though I'm always searching for my head when I'm off work.
Certy thought: Well, I suppose I wouldn't find my head by just roaming aimlessly around the city.
Certy thought: Which reminds me, I haven't seen any fairies or sprites since coming to Japan. / If I flew all the way to Hokkaido or Okinawa, would I meet them?
Certy thought: Then again, / it's not like I can leave this city right now.
Certy thought: What if the sense of my head disappears while I'm away?
Certy thought: There is no doubt that I sense my head is in Ikebukuro.
Certy thought: The only lead I have is that sense. // I've been patiently patrolling the streets all this time but-
Certy thought: I haven't been able to grasp a single hint in these 20 years.
[Why don't you give up?]
Certy thought: Like I could do that!!
Certy thought: It's not that I'm unsatisfied with my life now.
Certy thought: But in order to attain a peaceful life, I need to see my head again. // No matter what.
[And the reason is… something I can't tell Shinra yet.]
[I can't tell him about these emotions that twist within my chest.]
Shizuo: Certy, can you come with me for a bit?
Certy: According to Shinra, this is "the man who doesn't live up to his name in the least."
Shizuo: Izaya's in Ikebukuro again.
Shizuo: I almost got to punch him but, / Simon interfered at the last minute.
[Heiwajima Shizuo and Orihara Izaya have been archenemies for a long time.]
[Until the day Izaya moved to Shinjuku, the two were fighting on 60 Street every day.]
[Simon would often forcefully interfere, // and drag them into his sushi shop.]
[The reason Shizuo doesn't mind me, is probably because I don't talk.]
Shizuo: Unlike Kadota and Yumasaki, I'm always alone when I cause trouble. // The same goes for Izaya, since he doesn't have any friends.
Shizuo: It's not like I'm never lonely.
Shizuo: I want to meet people too, even if it's only a shallow relationship.
Shizuo: Why did Izaya come to this city?
[That's because Izaya's target of his twisted hobbies was coincidentally in Ikebukuro…]
[But wait, that was yesterday!!]
[A few years ago, Izaya moved his office to Shinjuku, after leaving Shizuo with a few felony charges.]
[It's unthinkable that an Informer who works in Shinjuku would spend two consecutive days in Ikebukuro.]
Shizuo: That's right-
Shizuo: I remember he was talking to a kid from Raira…
Shizuo: Did someone fall?
Shizuo: Should we give them a hand… / Ah-
Certy: It can't be.
Certy: It can't be.
Certy: It can't possibly be.
Certy PDA: I just want to see your face closely!
Crowd: It's the black bike! // The rider is grabbing the girl!
Shizuo: Ah, please calm down.
Shizuo: We're not trying to hurt-
Seiji: Let go of her.
Certy: Wait! // But Shizuo…
Shizuo: It's alright. // Go on.
Shizuo: Don't get what's going on, but you need to chase her, right?
Certy SFX: Clap
Certy: Wait! / That's-
Certy: That face-
Certy: Isn't that my head?!
Certy: Another High Schooler?!
Certy: W- Wait a second!!!
[Certy chases after Mikado!]
TV ANIME "DURARARA!!" After-Recording Report Manga.
[We visited the recording of "Durarara!!" episode 21!]
[As always, a rich cast bring the characters to life!!]
[Mikado does the narration for episode 21.]
[Manager - Katoppe]
Toyonaga: That time, why did I…
[The voice actor is Toyonaga Toshiyuki-san.]
[This episode, worries and struggles take over Mikado.]
Toyonaga: I decided I would change… but…
[He moved me with his heartrending acting!!]
[And the ones who really left an impression were these two.]
Miyano: You really don't remember anything?
[Kida Masaomi - Voiced by Miyano Mamoru]
Ono: Eh? // Ehh??
[Heiwajima Shizuo - Voiced by Ono Daisuke]
[Their low tones really gave the episode a tense feel.]
[Not to mention we got to see a new side of Shizuo this time!]
Shizuo: Ah… Tom-san.
Katoppe: How refreshing…
Torino: He's so obedient…
[On the other hand, there's Shinra, voiced by Fukuyama Jun, who looks at everything very calmly.
Fukuyama: So… What will you do?
[Since he uses many difficult words, he checks with the director for explanations.]
Fukuyama: What does this mean?
Director: Oh, that's…
[Next up are the females! Something occurs between these two…!]
[Even though it's a serious scene, watching them is somehow relaxing.]
Certy Sturluson voiced by Sawashiro Miyuki]
[Sonohara Anri voiced by Hanazawa Kana]
Sonoara: Sorry… // Please don't ask me anything right now.
[The reason is because Certy almost seems like an older sister, the way she worries for Anri!]
Sawashiro: Don't worry. // Okay?
[But the peace is fleeting. Black shadows close in on Anri…]
[And the one who watches that from afar is…]
Kamiya: Good. // Good~!
Kamiya: It's getting exciting.
[Orihara Izaya voiced by Kamiya Hiroshi]
[As usual, he watches the scene from somewhere very high.]
Kamiya: The Queen // has been surrounded by black.
[What do those words mean…?!]
Bold: Find out on air!!
[The speed of the anime increases as we near the climax!]
[Secrets begin to unfold one after the next. Yet, there are still mysteries to be solved!]
