* Isaac and Miria's voices sounding different in the dub is obviously due to different dubbing companies, but there actually ''is'' a plausible in-universe explanation--notice that Isaac seems to pronounce Miria's name differently than he does in ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'s'' dub, with a slight rolled r. He's using the Japanese pronunciation. ''Isaac and Miria are speaking Japanese'', just like all the other characters, [[TranslationConvention we're just hearing it in English in the dub]]. Even better seeing as Isaac and Miria are confirmed to be able to speak Japanese in the light novels.

* I just realized something, [[spoiler: Anri]] claims that the only she can wield Saika without going insane is because she can't feel love right? Well, assuming that's true, [[spoiler: Shinra's dad]] has also wielded Saika in the past, in order to [[spoiler: cut off Celty's head.]] However, he actually is capable of feeling love, as evidenced by his status as a PapaWolf (apparently the only reason he did that with the sword is because someone threatened his son's life). This means that he can pick up and use Saika without being driven insane and being controlled by it despite having an apparently undamaged capacity to love. This says ''a lot'' to me about how strong this person is mentally, and he just became a BadAss in my eyes.

* Izaya has a ''frighteningly'' expansive knowledge of psychology. Suicide pacts aside, hearing him talk to you is enough to break you mentally, or make you think of ending your life (though they mostly get foiled, this doesn't include ''successful'' attempts that aren't shown). He's also got many characters and entire groups under his strings once or twice in the show, causing them to go to war with each other with them being none the wiser. His followers are so devoted to him that, "if he wanted them to die, they would probably have gone ahead and did it, even if they had doubts." His endgame plan even included goading Shizuo to kill him and prove that he is, indeed, a monster. And all of his depravity started because of love for someone else (Shinra incident, remember?) It's a damn good thing that Izaya's merely content with trolling the fuck out of people, because with his level of intelligence and influence, he could '''easily''' be the next [[{{Manga/Monster}} Johan Liebert]] once he steps up his game...
** To give a clear example; what happens if Izaya decides that humanity is no longer worthy of receiving love? Besides, after the events of Ketsu, once he recovers, ''just'' what place will he cause misery and suffering at next? Will the humiliation he received at the hands of his enemy cause him to really step up his game? Given that, on "A Sunset with Orihara Izaya", he manipulated a salaryman into killing his own co-worker...

** While scarce details are available about his cult of personality, "...his fans had conflicts between students in several Ikebukuro high schools, leading to a protracted period of unrest." Can he be, or ''is'' he already the next Charles Manson? To think both of their followers tend to be traumatized young girls.

* Izaya's recruitment and treatment of his own followers has far ''too'' many similarities with real-life cults...

* Shizuo's rages. We're talking about a guy who can lift vending machines out of the ground with ease. And when he is having a particular bad tantrum, he tends to throw heavy objects into the street, which more than likely has either killed or injured random people.
