About five years ago I learnt about the character called Izaya Orihara from Ryougo Narita‘s novel series and multiple-media project Durarara!! Little did I know that it would be this fictional character that would dominate my life forever. To be fair, it is one of the most popular personae in the series if not the most popular one. I never tended to like the major characters in television or film but in this regard, Durarara!! is different to me as there are many actors in the play and each can be considered the protagonist according to which point of view the story is told from and who we, as the reader, take interest in or relate to.
