Animenewsnetwork - If you're a fan of Durarara!!, and you really love the series for what it is, then you know what's coming and you've already accepted it. It's time once again for the "Everything You Know Is Actually Wrong Ha Ha Ha" anticlimax arc finale! The good news is that this arc's conclusion is a solid one, closer to the quality of the excellent first and second story arcs than the (abysmal) third and the (shruggy) fourth. (Yes, this arc covers books five and six of the novels, but the "Akane" and "Blue Squares" stories basically slur into one big one instead of being distinct like the previous four, at least in this anime adaptation.) It's a pretty good story overall once you put the pieces together, but that brings us to the bad news. The bad news is that it is extremely difficult to put all those pieces together, thanks to the show's continually lifeless execution.
