Durarara!! is like a slightly tamer Baccano!
Hah. More like extremely tamer.
It's like a kid show compared to Baccano.

I think it even qualifies as seinen rather than shonen.

Sometimes it seems even darker than Baccano.
I don't know...people becoming immortal and only being able to die by eating each other through their own left hands is pretty dark. But a headless biker chick seems about on a par wtih that.
Still, I'm sure you agree that it feels less like a kid's show than Bleach or Kekkaishi. Maybe more akin to FMA:B than Bebop or GITS, as far as the current [as] lineup is concerned.

Dullahans tend to say the name of the person who is about to die then they perish or use whips made from human bones. Though they tend to use the whips to blind people instead of killing them.
I have never heard of them using shadows to harm people.

G4 marvel stuff is rather lame.
Kim Manning has said herself that they cannot get elfen lied (though she wanted it).
Durarara is definitely low on the blood. but its HUGE on language and suggestive content lol. and despite there being little blood, its def [as] material lol.

i'd say some of the jokes are . either way, there's plenty of stuff you wouldn't wanna let a little kid hear .

No-name girl is kidnapped presumably to be forced into an AV/prostitution. That's in the first and second episodes. Don't think she is ever heard from again.
That's the only 'suggestive content' I can recall in DRRR.
We're forgetting creepy lecherous teacher guy and his crazy ass stalker?
And the gang violence is still pretty scary and there's the Slasher scenes and Blue Square's retaliation against the Yellow Scarves.
That's pretty bad as well.

I have to agree about that. It was really annoying. But if Celty had found her head that quickly that wouldn't have been very good either I don't think.
The Celty's head story in general was stupid. I don't give a fuuuuuudge about her bull**tut-tut** love life, those aren't the answers I wanted, nor did I want them within 4 episodes.
She started as the focal mystery, should have stayed that way. Information release in the show was awful.
