Durarara!! (デュラララ!! Dyurarara!!?), often romanized as DRRR!! in Japan, is a Japanese light novel series written by Ryohgo Narita, with illustrations by Suzuhito Yasuda. As of February 2011, nine volumes have been published by ASCII Media Worksunder their Dengeki Bunko imprint. A manga adaptation by Akiyo Satorigi started serialization in the shōnen manga magazineMonthly GFantasy on April 18, 2009. An anime adaptation began airing in Japan in January 2010. The series is about adullahan working as an underworld courier in Ikebukuro, Japan, an internet-based anonymous gang called The Dollars, and the chaos that unfolds around the most dangerous people in Ikebukuro. A game based on the series for the PlayStation Portable was released on September 22, 2010.


Mikado Ryūgamine is a young boy who longs for the exciting life of the big city. At the invitation of his childhood friend Masaomi Kida, he leaves home to go to a high school, Raira Academy, in Ikebukuro, Tokyo.

Masaomi warns him about people he doesn't want to cross in the city: a violent and superhumanly strong man dressed like a bartender, an information broker, and a mysterious gang called "The Dollars." And, to top it off, Mikado witnesses an urban legend on his first day in the city: the "Black Rider," the supposedly headless pilot of a black motorcycle that sounds like a horse.

The narrative follows all of the characters equally, showing how their lives intersect, creating a greater plotline from what each character knows about a common incident.
