It was a good week to be an anime fan. Along with the Attack on Titan dub announcements and the first piece of official art from the new Sailor Moon anime, there’s another piece of exciting news: it’s now been confirmed that a second anime series for Durarara!! is in the works. The news came out of the Dengeki Game Festival 2014 in Japan on Sunday. The majority of the staff from the first anime series will be working together on this new project, and it’s expected that the voice actors will return to reprise their roles as well.

Durarara!! is the story of several strange and interesting individuals inhabiting Ikebukuro, a district within Tokyo. Central to the plot are gang conflicts, personal drama, and supernatural happenings- including the legend of a headless motorcycle rider. The new series’ story takes place a year and a half after the events of the first anime series.

The first series was released by Aniplex of America in North America and showed for a time on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block. The manga is being released in North America by Yen Press, although the original light novels by Ryohgo Narita have not been released outside of Japan as of yet. Sharp-eyed fans might have already spotted Shizuo Heiwajima in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax.
