Durarara!!×2 “Ketsu” – Episode 31 Review
This round’s subtitle is “Worse than Dogs and Monkeys.” This means that archenemies hate each other far more than dogs and monkeys would go against each other. In Japan, dogs and monkeys are usually considered being on bad terms.
The dog and monkey referred here are Izaya and Shizuo. These two guys are archrivals ever since junior high school. They face each other again this time. Don’t miss Shizuo’s ultra cool action scene!
Let me introduce you some of the highlights of the 31st episode.
Synopsis: Episode 31
The shocking Celty’s head incident flew Namie into a fit of rage. She goes ballistic on the chat room and accuses Mikado to take the responsibility.
On the other hand, Shizuo is still with the Shooter, looking for Celty. He runs into Kasane, and learns from her that she is selling Celty to Seitaro Yagiri. Shizuo gets visibly furious at this outcome. Varona (a.k.a. Ворона) suddenly appears at the site and points her gun at Shizuo.
Highlight 1: Kasane Captured the Body of Celty
The reason why Kasane captured Celty is because it makes her business.
Seitaro Yagiri – the president of Yagiri Medicine Company – collects “creatures of abnormal appearances” as his hobby. Kasane’s intention is to sell Celty like a commodity and make money out of it. In other words, the man behind the Celty hunt project was this dilettanttes of non-human creatures, Seitaro Yagiri.
Highlight 2: Shizuo Steals the Spotlight
Shizuo has been searching for Celty. His pursuit eventually brings him to Kasane and Yagiri. Enraged Shizuo explodes his fury at Kasane. Varona (a.k.a. Bopoнa) appears from the dark; she’s here to meet with Kasane, but now, she points her gun at Shizuo and demands him to let go off Kasane.
Bopoнa even tries to make an argument, however, his feelings toward her makes him less confrontational. Shizuo simply blushes her off. Kasane suggests Ворона to leave the scene with her, saying it is a bad idea to mix business and personal matters.
At that precise moment, a construction material falls off from the building roof top. Ворона quickly notices this and jumps to protect Shizuo from getting hit; however, she herself suffers an injury on the leg.
The attack didn’t end there. Over the heads of Shizuo and Ворона together, a shovel car drops down. Shizuo uses his superhuman ability to hurl off the heavy shovel car. Shizuo’s mighty power is second to no one!
By the way… have you already figured out who had dropped those crazy things?
You are right, it’s Izaya – the man who wants to get rid of Shizuo so bad. He is plotting to eradicate any abnormal creatures, plus, Shizuo.
How did you enjoy the show?
Shizuo shined like a star; he practically played a leading role in this episode. In the very last scene, Shizuo expresses absolute fury at Izaya. These two archrivals share some heavy past. It looks like the next duel might be their last battle…!
