One of the main series that Aniplex USA brought out when they really got going and into the streaming side of things, Durarara!! has been shopped around a lot. It’s had extensive streaming and broadcast attention and it’s had some time to rest as well. Now, the series and its followup with X2 are now streaming on Funimation thanks to the new relationship that they have as companies under parent owner Sony. This means there’s some sixty episodes of the show to stream and get into, which is a lot and a whole lot of fun. The series is available in bilingual form to audiences in the US and Canada as that’s where Aniplex USA holds the rights to them.
The main staff includes Takahiro Omori directing based on scripts by Noboru Takagi and character designs by Takahiro Kishida. Animation production is being done by studio Shuka, their first production, instead of Brains Base which handled the first series.
Plot concept: A pitch-black headless motorcyclist who roams the city?! High-tension suspense and action are taking over Tokyo’s Ikebukuro District! Warped romances and friendships – and plenty of hidden secrets – lie behind these big city walls!
