Durarara!! 19, 20, & 21
…As you know, I’ve been away, so lumping all these episodes together >_>
So, first, Anri managed to infiltrate the Yellow Scarves’ SUPER SECRET NOTUNDERGROUND BASE DURR HURR
Where she learnt that Kida is t3h leedar.
She then gets “saved” (she has a freaking katana why would she need to get saved) by Celty who JUMPS OVER A WALL. ON A HORSE. WHICH IS ACTUALLY A MOTORCYCLE WTF
So now Anri knows that Kida’s the leader of the Yellow Scarves. Kida knows nothing. Mikado knows nothing.
On to the next episode~
…Which is basically Kida and Team Kadota talking about nothing in Russia Sushi. Really not worth watching :/
They then tell Kida to contact Izaya to find out who the leeda of the dollars is.
So now, Anri knows that Kida’s the leader, Kida knows that Mikado’s the leader, and Mikado knows nothing yet again.
Which concludes episode 20.
Finally, in episode 21, both Mikado and Kida lose their control over their gangs and SHIT HAPPENS.
And Anri’s just micromanaging everyone through Reisen hypnosis.
Everything’s just escalating now, as Kida finally realizes that the SLASHARZ is actually Anri. Mikado talks to (and encourages the consumption of high-energy beverages) various random people but STILL KNOWS NOTHING AT ALL THE FREAKING IDIOT
And then it ends with Anri being kidnapped.
I don’t get it.
There’s three episodes left and it’s still building?
There’s a lot of things wrong with this now.
Firstly, why wouldn’t Kida just DIRECTLY TALK TO MIKADO OR ANRI?! He knows both of them are the Dollarleader and Slasher, so if he just talked to them everything could be sorted out.
What’s with the one episode where everyone just talks for half an hour?! And then Walker and Erika’s blasphemous nonsense about some otaku fantasy world that noone understood at all (If you did, get outta here)?!
Why couldn’t Anri just slash through everyone and run away? Or just tell Kida that she (not U.N. Owen) was her?
Why does that Russian Sushi chef has epic knife skills?!
…Ignore the last one.
I was really hyped up about this anime in the intermediate episodes with all the Shizuo-Tastumaki Senpuukyakunesses, but now it feels like it’s declining. Instead of being an anime that builds up towards the climax it feels like the climax is already over and this is the denouement :<
Then again it could just build up until the last episode and then EPIC WAR START…
Eh, this series wasted enough of my life for me to watch it till the end, I guess.
The old ending was still way better though.
So is Youmu.
