Durarara!!: Daisy Chain

Currently finished: Episode 3

Very much like Baccano!, this story takes a very unorthodox approach to storytelling. But instead of using a massive parallel layout like Baccano!, it uses more of a daisy chain approach. This is just as an effective method as the other, because the story gets into the huge cluster fuck situation just as quickly as they did in Baccano!.

Also, I thought the characters looks somewhat familiar. Then, episode 3 tipped me off with one of the character waving a Yozakura Quartet manga and talking about going to get it signed by Yasuda sensei. That's when I recognized that all characters here look just like the ones from Yozakura Quartet. It turns out, Suzuhito Yasuda, the artist behind Yozakura Quartet is also responsible for the character design of Durarara!!
