Dengeki streamed the promotional video for Durarara!!×2 Shō anime that debuted at the Dengeki Bunko Aki no Saiten (Dengeki Bunko Fall Festival) event on Sunday. The video teases the new story developments and one of the new characters, Aoba:
Mikado: Half a year has passed since I experienced those mysterious — but not mysterious, life-changing — but not life-changing, strange – but commonplace events.
Masaomi: Seriously, sorry I haven't been able to participate in this chat for half a year! I was actually on a lovey-dovey rendezvous with my girlfriend!
Mikado: Masaomi...!? Is that really you, Masaomi!?
Shizuo: Why you piece of...!!
Celty: It's not here...! It's not here...! I must have dropped it somewhere!! WHERE DID I DROP IT!?
Anri: who are you? What do you... How much do you know?
