News Durarara's Final DVD to Add DVD-Exclusive Episode 25
posted on 2010-06-21 10:00 EDT
The official website of the Durarara!! television anime series confirmed that the 13th and final DVD volume will ship next February with a DVD-exclusive episode 25. The final television episode, episode 24 "Sokutenkyoshi," will air in Japan this Thursday. Director Takahiro Omori revealed in a Sunday Twitter post that Ryohgo Narita, the author of the original Durarara!! light novels, had drafted the story for the episode. Narita himself had said in a Twitter post earlier on Sunday that he feels that episode 25 will not be the story's finale as such, but a bonus epilogue.
Rob Peryda, Vice-President, Licensing at Crunchyroll, had revealed in a March 18 Twitter post that his company would "stream DuRaRaRa 25-26 and SoRaNoWoTo 13-14 the same day as Japanese home video." The first DVD-exclusive episode, which will ship with the seventh DVD volume on August 25, was eventually numbered as "12.5," so the second DVD-exclusive episode will be numbered "25" instead of "26." The final DVD volume will ship on February 23, 2011.
