    WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

  • karldeck

    So, will the plot lead into to something now?

    • Kaetsu

      I feel the first season created a solid base for the next season to work with.

    • Detrimont

      seeing as how each volume is a full enclosed story, with next to no continuation other than characters, you might be a bit disapoointed with no continuing story

      • komiko12

        I think there are some volumes that connect to each other.

        Volumes 5-6 is an arc and I think Volumes 10-13 is also an arc.

        • Detrimont

          yes and no, they do continue on, but they’re also self enclosed at the same time

          • komiko12

            I am quite sure Vol. 5 and 6 would definitely leave you confused if you didn’t read them together.

          • Detrimont

            if you skipped any volume you’d be confused

          • komiko12

            Of course you would be since it’s a series after all. But it’s not the same as Volumes 5 and 6.

            Volume 4 is quite independent if you ask me.

          • Detrimont

            you still need to read v4 to know who the new characters are

  • Afternoon Intergalactic

    Maybe I’ll pick DRRR back up now, it was interesting but I couldn’t relate with the protagonist’s group enough to finish it. The supporting characters were great though.

  • ShinTekk

    I’m wondering if Celty will ever encounter her missing head. During the whole anime I was thinking, “When will she get her head back?!”

    • Detrimont

      volume 12

  • DCBlackbird

    Fantastic.

  • Luis Camargo

    YES
    YES
    YES
    YES

    Praise the sun

    What a wonderful surprise.

    Yay
    I wish the first season had a budget box set, I loved it when it was on Adult Swim.

    It was finally time!! With the slow process of translating the light novels I was starting to crave more Durarara sweetness. Amazing news!

  • Luigi87

    omg YES. I haven’t been this happy with anime news in a long time.

  • MrJechgo

    • Ric Vazquez

      Not enough hypes! I’ve waited for this for so damn long and knew it was bound to happen because of the light novel.

      • MrJechgo

        Too much “HYPE!” would possibly have been considered a spam from Silicon Era though XD

        • Ric Vazquez

          LOL

  • heavymetalmixer

    Finally :D

  • Saphiren

    YES
    YES
    ALL MY YES
    MORE SHIZU-CHAN
    MORE IZAYA-KUN
    YES!

  • Astromime

    IIIIIZAAAAAYAAAAAA!!!!!

    • thcotaku

      Hahaha Izayaaaa :D

  • Jonathan Caminhas

    To Aru Majutsu no Index have 10 years anniversary too, why not Index season 3 dammit. Oh well, but it’s still good that we will have a season 2 of Durarara! dark Mikado is awesome.

  • Kaihedgie

    ‘Bout time :V

  • Kaetsu

    Finally…MORE RUSSIA SUSHI!

  • http://mizzi-sama.tumblr.com/ Pinkyuu

    ALL ABOARD THE HYPE TRAIN!

  • DragKudo

    AHHHH YEAAAAHHHH

  • Ricardo C

    The light novel ended recently in January of this year but I dont know how much the anime covered, this will be interesting.

    • Suzaku

      The anime adapted the first three novels.

  • Suzaku

    Since the light novels are complete (not counting the SH sequel series), I really hope they adapt everything.

  • epy

    Excellent. Time to rewatch the first one.

  • Suicunesol

    …10th anniversary? You should clarify that it’s the anniversary for the light novels. I got scared that I was getting old there.

    Also, if you’re going to report on anime news, you might as well report the news about the new Sailor Moon anime airing in July.

    • WingsOfEternity

      I think they did this one solely because the artist is the same guy who did Devil Survivor. I’m pretty sure SMT is the most liked (if not, atleast top 3) franchise among the Siliconera community.

  • saxophone15

    This is great news. I was hoping for another season because I knew there must be more (I didn’t read the source material).

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    DURRRRRRRR!!!

  • luckgandor

    Looking forward to it, since volume 4 of the LN is supposed to be amazing.

    • Detrimont

      great, not amazing, that would be v5, volume 4 is more of a laugh fest(twins are introduced, and they’re hilarious)

  • Oltheros

    Wow, awesome loved the first season.

    Still hope for Baccano s2?(!)

  • komiko12

    WAAH! This news made me so surprised that I had to comment after weeks of not doing so.

    This anime announcement and the light novel sequels makes this a good Durarara year.

  • Tiramii

    OMG YES YES YES. I WAS HOPING IT’D GET ANOTHER SEASON SINCE THERE’S A PARTICULAR SCENE IN THE LIGHT NOVELS INVOLVING MIKADO THAT I WANTED ANIMATED SO BAD. HERE’S HOPING.

  • Uso Ewin

    That’s grrrreat.

  • Hagaren

    Super hyped for this! With Durarara 2 confirmed all I need is To Aru Majutsu no Index 3 and more Baccano.

  • Skeptika Crediblus

    Woo-HOOOO!

  • axemtitanium

    The only thing that can make me happier is if they also announce a new season of Baccano!!

  • mike dickson

    yay

  • ChristyKf9

    Finally the light novel is so darn far ahead, this is a few years late.
