G4 like the Marvel stuff?!? Don't make me laugh! Although seriously it will probably be pretty good...

(Do you know when it's coming?)

Elfen Lied is WAAAAAY too bloody. From what I've seen, Durarara!! is like a slightly tamer Baccano! Should be big with the Bebop and Ghost In The Shell crowd.

It's like a kid show compared to Baccano.

Well that may be, but it's less like a kid's show than Bleach or Kekkaishi, right? I think it even qualifies as seinen rather than shonen.

I'm not sure what Baccano! qualifies as, but if you've never seen it, it's back on Hulu right now. Warning: don't get used to the voices of any of the characters in this if they happen to show up in Durarara!!; they WILL change!

Sometimes it seems even darker than Baccano.

 

 

Spoiler

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.

Headless biker chick has a cool scythe.

In the first episode she uses the scythe to attack some dude.

However, once the scythe goes through the dude, there is no blood, there is no laceration, and we even see him later in the series as if nothing ever happened at all.

=\

There's only maybe 3 scenes where I recall there being any blood at all, one of which being a flashback.

Makes sense.

 

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.

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.

There's only 2 !s in Durarara!!. Not 7 !s and a ?.

White beats up Brown while Red does nothing to stop White, in spite of sympathy for Brown. Issei Hyodo, Rias Gremory, and Koneko Tojo are a lot like the Aqua Teen Hunger Force in that way.


Go ahead and ask me something.

We're forgetting creepy lecherous teacher guy and his crazy ass stalker?

 

Also,

Spoiler
the idea that they took some murdered girl and attached someone else's head to her body, (even though it turns out to be a fake-out) is pretty gruesome. Especially when you remember that they supposedly do it to appease an ass-face teen and his sister's creepy incestuous love for him.

:/

 

And the gang violence is still pretty scary and there's the Slasher scenes and Blue Square's retaliation against the Yellow Scarves.

Spoiler
They force Kida to listen while they break his girlfriend's legs.

 

That's pretty bad as well.

The fake out was really stupid.

That was the last straw for me.

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.
