The official website for the Durarara!! anime confirmed on Sunday that production on a second original video anime (OVA) for Durarara!!×2 has been green-lit. 10 theaters throughout Japan will screen the new OVA, Durarara!!×2 Ten Gaiden!? (Durarara!! ×2 The Second Arc Side Story), starting on November 14.
"Episode 13.5" is set between episodes 13 and 14, and depicts the shocking incident that occurs during Celty and Shinra's romantic trip together. It adapts a popular story segment from the seventh volume of Ryohgo Narita's original novel series.
The cast includes:
- Miyuki Sawashiro as Celty Sturluson
- Jun Fukuyama as Shinra Kishitani
- Hiroshi Kamiya as Izaya Orihara
- Daisuke Ono as Shizuo Heiwajima
- Daisuke Kishio as Kasuka Heiwajima
- Sanae Kobayashi as Namie Yagiri
- Junichi Suwabe as Traugott Geissendorfer
Toshiyuki Toyonaga is contributing his song "91cm" as the ending theme of Episode #13.5. The song is already on sale on a CD with the opening theme, "Day you laugh."
The screenings will be about 45 minutes long — 25 minutes for the episode itself with 20 more minutes of extras for the screenings. The limited advance tickets for the screenings include an "Izaya and Shizuo's Ikebukuro Ghost Story CD," and those bought via Aniplex+ will also include a B2-size poster of the image above. The regular advance tickets will go on sale on September 12 with a postcard of Isaya and Shizuo in kimonos.
