I wanted to point out how well the Durarara!! anime used lighting to its advantage. In each scene where Mikado reveals some of his potential, the shadow on his face gets smaller and smaller. In the finale when his black emotions finally emerge, nearly his entire face is uncovered. This is symbolic of Mikado’s TRUE personality emerging. People often underestimate him as a timid and weak character, but DON’T BE FOOLED. HE WILL BURN YOU ALIVE.
