This is one of those anime that takes a bit to get into; it's a little slow at first until the series has finished introducing the characters. Even then, it's kind of like one of those shows that you start to like but your not really sure why because it's just so different. At first, I was so confused as to what the story was, but I felt this need to keep watching anyway just to find out. Once the story actually started to unfold, it was even harder to stay away. This show has some great characters and don't think that just because it starts out with intros, that you feel like you know everything about them. This is definitely one of those anime that keeps throwing those curve balls. So, if your looking for something fun and different, give Durarara!! a shot. Even if it's just to learn a little something about the Dollars. ;)
