Durarara!! Premieres on U.S. TV's Adult Swim Tonight
posted on by Egan Loo
The 2010 Durarara!! anime adapts Ryohgo Narita's suspense action light novels of the same name. After launching his earlier Baccano! light novel series, Narita wrote Durarara's "warped adolescent fantasy romance" about the colorful young denizens of Tokyo's Ikebukuro neighborhood.
Narita has written nine Durarara!! novel volumes since 2004, and Akiyo Satorigi began drawing a manga series in Square Enix's G Fantasy magazine in 2009. Aniplex shipped the entire 26-episode anime on DVD in North America. The website Crunchyroll streamed the anime outside Japan as it aired.
