Muimi ja nai ano hikari DURARARA!! Looking back, I don't quite get it.
But, in a way, I do.
Anyway, it would change my life.
But, in a way, nothing changed at all.
It was both very, very strange, and also the sort of thing that could happen to anyone.
Here in Ikebukuro EXIT 1/ FIRST WORD I-I'm sor I want to go home.
Please don't laugh.
In both elementary and middle school, I stayed home from class trips.
Bye! I stayed home from class trips.
Here I am, a 15-year-old boy on his first trip to Tokyo, never having left my hometown, and at a loss in this big city.
That's me, Mikado Ryugamine.
And why am I standing dumbstruck in front of the Tobu-Tojo line, you ask? In April, I'll be starting class at Raira Academy, in East Ikebukuro.
It's ranked above average academically, is pretty, and has all the facilities you'd want.
But mostly, I'm going 'cause a friend of mine since elementary school invited me.
My parents wanted me to go to public school back home, but I'd always longed to go to Tokyo.
Mikado! Huh? Masaomi? Do I detect a question mark? Here's the answer.
Pick one of the following! One! Masaomi Kida! Two! Masaomi Kida! Three! Masaomi Kida! Masaomi! It's really you? I spent three years coming up with that, and you just ignore it? Man, I've missed you! You look so different! I barely recognized you! I never thought you'd dye your hair.
And your joke sucked.
It's been four years, after all.
You look exactly the same as in elementary school.
And don't say my joke sucked.
It was awesome.
Yes.
This is my best friend, Masaomi Kida.
I haven't seen him since he moved away in elementary school, but aside from appearances, nothing's changed.
Okay, let's go! Let's get outside the station.
Today, I feel like going west! So, one might expect us to take the west exit, but we're actually taking the Seibu exit His jokes suck, but he's a good guy.
We chatted online every day, so I hadn't ever realized how far apart we were or how long it had been.
Hey, know what the difference between the west exit and the Seibu exit is? so I hadn't ever realized how far apart we were or how long it had been.
Hey, know what the difference between the west exit and the Seibu exit is? But seeing him for the first time in four years really shows me how we've been living apart.
In Ikebukuro, the Tobu department store is on the west side, But seeing him for the first time in four years really shows me how we've been living apart.
and the Seibu department store is on the east side.
But seeing him for the first time in four years really shows me how we've been living apart.
and the Seibu department store is on the east side.
Ah, darn it Why do I always explain my failed jokes? Ah, darn it Why do I always explain my failed jokes? But inside, he hasn't changed at all, especially the way his jokes suck.
Ah, whatever.
But inside, he hasn't changed at all, especially the way his jokes suck.
Any place you want to check out? But inside, he hasn't changed at all, especially the way his jokes suck.
Any place you want to check out? Hmm Sunshine 60, maybe? Right now? That's the place to take a girlfriend, man.
Th-Then, what about Ikebukuro West Gate Park? Call it Nishiguchi Park like everyone else.
But don't all Ikebukurians call it that? Ikebukuro-what now? Oh, wait.
You really want to go? Huh? No, well W-Wait! N-Never mind! It's nighttime! Those color gangs will kill us! You've gotta be kidding me, man.
And it's like 6 o'clock.
I see you're still as much of a wuss as ever.
Taro Tanaka has joined the room.
Taro Tanaka Good evening.
Setton 'Evening.
Taro Tanaka Hey, Setton.
Taro Tanaka I'll be living in Ikebukuro, starting tomorrow.
Setton Oh, really? Setton Setton You might end up living near me, then.
Taro Tanaka Maybe so.
Taro Tanaka Right now, I'm still at home, Taro Tanaka but starting tomorrow, I'll be living in an apartment near Sunshine.
Welcome to Ikebukuro.
Amazing A whole world that I've only seen in manga and on the internet stands before me.
It's more amazing than Kamisakura-Machi-Ginza.
Then I'll take you to Shibuya some time.
Or, if you like crowds, maybe you'd prefer a horse track.
Lately, there aren't as many color gangs.
There were a lot of really showy ones around last year, but they picked a fight with gangs from the Saitama area, and a bunch got arrested.
Ever since then, if a bunch of people wearing the same colored clothes gather in one place, the police are on 'em in a second.
Then, Ikebukuro's safe now? I don't really know too many details myself, so don't take me for an expert, but there are lots of other dangerous people around.
Be careful.
I see By the way, this is Sixty Story Street.
There's another street called Sunshine Street.
I wonder if they made Sunshine Street first.
S-Sorry! Oh, it's Masaomi.
Hey, Oh! Hey, Erika.
Walker.
Howdy.
How've you been? Yo.
How's it hangin', Kida? Long time no see! Who's this kid? Friend of yours? Yeah, this is an old friend of mine.
He just moved to Ikebukuro today.
Ah, cool.
This young lady is Erika.
And this is Walker.
Over there are Kyohei and Saburo.
U-Um, my name is Mikado Ryugamine.
Did I say something I shouldn't have? A pen name? Why would a high schooler have a pen name? Oh, maybe he's on the radio or writes for some magazine? U-Um, it's actually my real name.
No way! It's your real name? Wow, what a cool name! Like the star of a manga series! Aw, you're embarrassing me! Aw, you're embarrassing me! What should I do? I can't keep up with this conversation.
What should I do? I can't keep up with this conversation.
You guys were out shopping? Yup.
Dengeki Bunko just released their latest publishing run.
I picked up thirty copies or so.
Dengeki Bunko puts out thirty books a month? No, of course not! One each for him and me, and then, oh Ten more for other stuff.
Other stuff.
What do they mean by other stuff? Like a copy to keep, or a copy for work, or a copy just to look at or something? Well, we're gonna get going.
See you guys soon! Right.
Peace.
Oh, hold that by her head.
See you.
Hey! Don't let it bang into the car! Well, they're a bit odd, but treat them nice and they'll treat you nice, too.
I didn't know you had friends like that.
I get involved in all kinds of things.
I know all the good shops, where to get good used clothes, I know all the good shops, where to get good used clothes, What has he experienced over the last four years, while I was sitting alone at home? and even how to get street vendors to cut their prices.
What has he experienced over the last four years, while I was sitting alone at home? What has he experienced over the last four years, while I was sitting alone at home? Well, if you know everything going on, it makes it that much easier to talk to all the girls.
He's a perv.
Found her.
You sure? Complete match to the provided description.
Roger.
Let's go.
Yeah.
Don't use too much.
If she doesn't wake up, they take it from our pay.
It's all good.
It's a teenage female.
That's a fifty percent bonus, right? Twenty percent, dude.
Twenty percent.
Our first good target in a while.
A teenage girl! Yeah.
Thank God for that info broker.
Good evening.
Taro Tanaka Kanra! Taro Tanaka I didn't know you were here.
Kanra I was on the phone.
Kanra Oh.
Kanra I just finished reading the scrollback.
You're moving to Tokyo? Kanra Congratulations.
Kanra Want to get together IRL? Taro Tanaka Yeah.
That sounds fun.
Kanra Doesn't it? Kanra Oh, speaking of meeting offline, Kanra ever heard about suicide meet-ups? Setton Yeah, those were big for a while, weren't they? Setton People find each other on the internet, then commit suicide together.
Taro Tanaka Horrible, isn't it? Taro Tanaka But you don't hear much about them anymore, do you? Setton Maybe they're not successful at offing themselves Kanra Or maybe there are a bunch of them, Kanra but people haven't found out.
Kanra Like they haven't found the bodies or something.
Setton Don't be indiscrete.
Kanra Come to think of it, a lot of people have gone missing lately.
Taro Tanaka Huh? Taro Tanaka Is there such news? Kanra Let's see Kanra Mostly illegal aliens, Kanra or kids who've run away from home to Tokyo.
A lot of them are going missing between Ikebukuro and Shibuya.
Excuse me.
Yes? Miss Mazenda? Yes.
Oh, are you Mr.
Nakura? Good! I figured it was you.
Hello.
Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you, too.
Shall we get going? Okay.
We're almost there.
Two others are there already.
Oh, okay.
That's it.
Hey.
Hello.
We clear? There's no one around at all.
Okay, then Sorry for tricking you! But there is someone here.
Masaomi just kept on talking.
I was getting tired.
Either from walking, or from listening to his bad jokes.
There's so much to talk about when you meet in person, huh? Either from walking, or from listening to his bad jokes.
There's so much to talk about when you meet in person, huh? Probably both.
There's so much to talk about when you meet in person, huh? Y-Yeah.
I figure I've only gone over about 5/400ths of what I had to cover.
Oh, 4/400ths are Erika and the others.
I was debating whether to humor him or not, and that's when I saw him.
Hey, miss.
It's been a while.
Dressed like a sushi chef and recruiting customers No, a black guy dressed like a sushi chef, who was really big No, someone dressed like a sushi chef trying to draw in customers who was black for some reason Mister, long time no see.
Hey, Simon! Long time no see! Oh, Kida! Want sushi? It good.
I give you discount.
Sushi good! Nah.
I'm broke, so not today.
I'll eat here once I get a job and some money, so how 'bout some sushi on the house? I can't! I would disappear into seaweed of Russian tundra! Seaweed in the tundra? See you.
Mister, long time no see.
You know him? Yeah.
His name's Simon.
He's a black Russian.
He pulls customers in for that Russian sushi place over there.
Sorry.
I'm not following your joke.
I'm serious.
His real name is Semyon, but everyone reads it like English and calls him Simon.
Mister, long time no see.
His real name is Semyon, but everyone reads it like English and calls him Simon.
Mister, long time no see.
I don't know the details, but his parents took asylum in Russia from America or something.
I don't know the details, but his parents took asylum in Russia from America or something.
Anyway, a Russian friend of his started a sushi place, so he started working there.
Don't piss him off.
I once saw him stop a fight by picking up a guy as big as him with one hand.
Speaking of people you shouldn't piss off Wh-What's that? What's going on? Speak of the devil.
Just stay away from a guy named Shizuo Heiwajima.
Of course, just live a normal life and he'll never talk to you.
Wh-What kind of person is he? They aren't here yet.
That's weird.
The higher-ups are a bunch of slackers.
They need to be more careful.
Who cares? Not like we've got anywhere to be.
True that.
A man's body needs times like these.
A temporary respite from the brutalities of modern life.
By the way, I saw that black bike today.
Black bike? Um Kanra You haven't heard of it? Kanra It's the talk of Shinjuku and Ikebukuro lately.
Kanra It's been like an urban legend for a while, Kanra but a lot of people have been taking pictures of it lately.
Setton Oh, I've heard of that.
Setton But isn't it just a normal bike gangster? Setton Not that anyone's ever seen it in a group or anything, but you know Kanra If they're riding a bike with no lights, they're an idiot.
Kanra Assuming they're human Taro Tanaka What do you mean by that? Kanra Um, well, you see Kanra It's like a monster.
Hey.
Um You one of the higher-ups? Obviously not.
Then who is that? Are you screwing with us? We're kinda busy here.
If you're gonna get in the way, then die! Y-You've gotta be shitting me Oh, crap! H-H-H-Hey! No! Get off me! Let go! I said to get off me.
Oh, shit, shit, shit, sh Wh-What the hell is that? What the hell is that? Taro Tanaka What do you mean it's a monster? Kanra Dotachin calls them the Grim Reaper.
Taro Tanaka Dotachin? Who's Dotachin? Kanra You see, the man on the black bike Taro Tanaka You're ignoring my question about Dotachin? Damn it! Take that! You bastard Kanra doesn't have a head.
Kanra Their head's cut clean off, but they still move.
Wh-What the hell are you? Wh-What are you?! Hey, are there any other people I should stay away from? Well, the yakuza and the gangs, obviously.
Also, there's a guy called Izaya Orihara.
Izaya Orihara? That's a strange name.
You're one to talk.
He's dangerous, so stay away.
Well, he mostly hangs out in Shinjuku, so you'll probably never see him.
Oh, and stay away from the Dollars.
The Dollars? Yeah, it's same as in Wanderers.
What the heck are Wanderers? I don't know details, but there are lots of them.
And they're all a little nuts Seems they're a color gang, but no one knows what color.
Of course, they can't really get together currently, so they may have split up by now.
I see.
Hey! Are you okay? You okay? Um, I'm sorry.
Are you all right? Um No No! No! No! Hey! What was that? Not even a thank you? I wonder what happened to her.
I don't know.
Anything can happen in this town.
You're lucky.
Just today, you met Kyohei and the gang, and Simon.
Plus, you saw a vending machine and a guy get thrown by Shizuo, and you bumped into a really pretty girl.
Is that honestly good luck? I'm happy.
Huh? I'm happy I get to go to school with you here, and that we can hang out again.
So am I.
You really are lucky today! You get to witness an urban legend, too! Masaomi! You saw the black bike, Taro Tanaka? Setton Was it around 9 PM? Taro Tanaka Ah, did you already hear about it, Setton? Setton Yeah.
I was there, too.
Taro Tanaka What? What do you mean, urban legend? The black bike! The Headless Rider! Just then, I realized that my body was shaking.
I wasn't scared.
I think I was moved.
I'd seen something amazing.
Right here, in this town, I experienced something I'd never experience anywhere else.
An impossible reality that I never thought I'd experience was before my very eyes.
It may contradict what I said at first, but at the least, it's what I thought then.
I was shaking with the premonition of a new reality beginning for me.
Really? Taro Tanaka Then we might've passed each other without knowing.
Setton Maybe so.
