Durarara!!×2 “Ketsu” – #27
KONNICHIWA! Emi again!
The pervious episode ends with Ceity’s head being put in the public in the streets of Ikebukuro. I have a sense that a lot of things will happen in episode 27! Without any further ado, I will talk about the highlights in Episode 27.
Summary of Episode 27
Due to a person’s mistake, Ceity’s head is being put in the public. This incident shocked Ceity and Izaya. Ikebukuro is abuzz with fear. Mikado figures out what he really wants. While Haruna Niekawa, in order to find her lover Takashi Nasujima, goes to Anri for help, however…..
1st Highlight Mikado vs Izaya
These two haven’t come together for a while. Mikado calls Izaya in regards of Ceity’s head but Izaya misunderstands that and thinks that Mikado is calling in regards of Akabayashi’s incident and accidentally exposes to Akabayashi that Mikado is the creator of DOLLARS.
Mikado, who wishes to go back to the DOLLARS, doesn’t want to fail in the same way again and therefore asks Izaya to be in his side. Izaya’s answer to Mikado’s request is unclear and Mikado learns about Izaya’s true behavior. So I guess at the end one side is going to use the other, and the other is going to be used.
2nd Highlight Interlacing of suprising characters
In this episode, there are surprising characters that we are able to meet.
- Anri, Kujiragi and Niekawas’ Saika group
One thing that surprises me is to be able to see that the Saika group comes together. In the past, there are scenes where Anri and Niekawa follow the order of Nasujima and fight. This time, Anri is the center of the fight. While Anri and Niekawa are fighting against each other, Kujiragi who happens to accidentally come by saves Anri. Kujiragi thinks that it’s not good for Ani using Saika and suggest to give Saika to her.
- Shijima and Nasujima
Nasujima comes to Shijima, who works for Jinnai Yodogiri. He tells Shijima that Yodogiri died in a car accident. Nasujima, who has a lot of debt, brings up a plan to steal Yodogiri’s assets. I am surprised to see Shinjima and Nasujima working together. Also, I am shocked to know that Nasujima is the criminal that hit Kadota. I think since Shijima and Nasujima are working together now, the story will have a huge development in the upcoming episodes.
- Masaomi and Chikage Rokujou
Toramaru’s head Chikage pays a visit to Kokinzoku’s Masaomi. This is the first time that both of them meet.
Chikage goes to the Kokinzoku and picks a fight with the them. I think the reason why Chikage is picking up a fight with the Kokinzuka is because he thinks that the criminal who hits Kadota is an Kokinzoku. Anyhow, I think there is something big going on pretty soon since Masaomi and Chikage met each other.
So, how did you like it?
With all these characters surprisingly coming together, I think there will be new problems in Ikebukuro. I think I am so confused since so many characters pop out in this episode, but I am looking forward to see how the problems will be solved in the upcoming episodes.
