WINTER ANIME SEASON 2014/2015 PREVIEW: Durarara!!x2 Shou

durarara!!x2 shouWhenever there are colours, there are problems… But is the scientific white to be a colour and how could the colourless be called “coloured”… Then, something’s wrong with logic. We shall meet new friends, learn even more new games and discover what has stayed hidden from our eyes since the end of the first Durarara!! season.

This new Durarara!!x2 Shou series will begin on 10th January, 2015. Streaming services as well as TV channels will show you all episodes!

How the Story Goes

The story starts off here the last one stopped. It continued the daptation of Ryohgo Narita’s original light novel series and will meet us with everyone we have missed-out on in the first series. Durarara!!x2 Shou is the first of three seasons of new Durarara!! material. The next ones will come out in the summer of this year and during next year’s winter season.

Six months after the last show, we know that Kida has went on a trip, but his nickname appears once more in the Dollars chatroom. Once more, the old gang will be together. Once more, in Durarara!!x2 Shou, Izaya has played his tricks to bring their time apart to an end.

Once everything had settled some time ago, it stayed like this. New enemies are appearing, though. The black rider will have to ride once more, the Dollars may need to act again and a certain sword might need to be wielded yet another time.

The foreign molecules are darkening the landscape, bringing yet another shade to the colourful air in Ikebukuro.


Characters and Cast

Apart from the usual suspects Mikado Ryyugamine, Masaomi Kida, Anri Sonohara, Izaya Orihara and Shizuo Heiwajima, we will meet some new characters. Some of them we have met, but for such a brief moment, that I prefer calling them “new” as well.

Egor, Slon, the Akabayashi family members and even Izaya’s most dreaded gaming opponent Aoba Kuronuma will all enter the stage as main or almost-main characters.

Just wait to see what will happen once everything is in motion!
