I've finished "Durarara Saika Arc Vol. 1" by Ryohgo Narita.

Product Description

Ikebukuro, Tokyo-a neighborhood where twisted love prowls!!

A series of street slashings in Ikebukuro begins to connect total strangers:

A teenage girl with no personality of her own; a beat writer for a third-rate tabloid; a teacher suspected of harassment; an informant based in Shinjuku and a headless rider straddling a pitch-black motorcycle!!

Meanwhile, the slasher continues to terrorize the night, all in search of "him"?

My Review:

This arc deals with a reporter trying to find the strongest person in Ikebukuro, a slasher who searching for him, we learn more about Shizuo Heiwajima's past, the headless rider who rides a black motorcycle, a harassing teacher and a teenage girl with no personality.

The artwork is greatly detailed and Shizuo seems like a normal guy until you cross him and then he goes berserk.


Thanks Hachette Book Group Canada/Yen Press for sending me this manga to review, greatly appreciated!
