“Abracadabra!” “Time for my grand entrance.” “To be or not to be? That’s a dumb question.” “Poof! I’m gone!” “Now you see Spider-Man. Soon you won’t.” “Where do you keep the window cleaner?” “Prepare yourselves for the magic of Mysterio!” “Now you see me! Now you don’t!” “Wa-lah!” “Hold your applause.” “It’s an illusion!”
The new (and final) season of Durarara is here! Oh man, let’s get to watching, hehe it’s kinda cool how they have a different character narrate each episode, wonder who it’ll be this ti-
oh god no
Shinra I love you but oh god any narrator but you
anyone but the one who peppers his conversation with smart-sounding four-character kanji compounds and big words and obscure sayings
please no I have the subtitles off Shinra please no show some mercy I’m begging you nooooooooooooooooooooooooo
[one very long 24-minute video later]
Okay, I just learned ten four-character compounds through my blood and tears, and I’m gonna compile them here for anyone else who’s planning to go into the Durarara episode armed with a Japanese dictionary. Avenge me.
