Durarara!! Anime Premieres on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim Tonight


Definitely worth checking this one out. This is the ‘spiritual successor’ to Baccano! but much less violent, yet no less twisted. Show time is 12:30AM EDT. Shows are usually available streaming on http://www.adultswim.com/ following broadcast.
Wikipedia explains the show thusly:
“Mikado Ryūgamine is a young man who longs for the exciting life of the big city. At the invitation of his childhood friend Kida Masaomi, he transfers to a school in Ikebukuro, Tokyo.
“Masaomi warns him about people he doesn't want to cross in the city: a violent man dressed like a bartender, an information merchant, and a mysterious gang called "Dollars." And to top it off, Mikado witnesses an urban legend on his first day in the city: the "Black Rider," the supposedly headless rider of a black motorcycle.
“The narrative follows all of the characters equally, showing how their lives intersect, creating a greater plotline from what each character knows about a common incident.”
