A sequel series, Durarara!! SH (Snake Hands), Hands) as part of the ten year anniversary celebration, came out April 2014, continuing from the final novel after a TimeSkip of two years. Featuring a new set of protagonists, as year and a half.

[[TheBerserker Yah]][[ActionSurvivor Yah]][[CombatPragmatist iro]] [[SuperStrength Mizuchi]], a student from a distant hot springs village in Akita, listening to the advice of a tourist, has moved to Ikebukuro and transferred into Raira Academy. He wants to see the UrbanLegends that have become mundane and more importantly, can he, with the strength and instincts of a monster in battle, fit in with them?


Added DiffLines:

* FunWithAcronyms: SH officially stands for Snake Hands, but in the afterword of volume 1, Narita mentions that it could be anything under the reader's interpretation like Sonohara's Hall or Super Hard.

Added DiffLines:

* MortalityPhobia: Izaya's primary goal is to avoid the CessationOfExistence he believes will occur beyond death, and has driven him to form an extremely convoluted plan in attempt to prevent it: hypothesizing that [[HeadlessHorseman Dullahan]] are actually {{Valkyries}} left dormant on Earth, he decides to start a massive gang war in the hopes of creating a conflict large enough to wake up resident Dullahan Celty and hitch a ride with her to whatever afterlife she returns to. He flatly states that he doesn't care whether or not it's a hellish place filled with nothing but pain, just as long as it's not [[TheNothingAfterDeath nothing]]. Ironically, since ''{{Durarara}}'' and ''{{Baccano}}'' share a [[TheVerse 'verse]], there is a much simpler and more reliable (also arguably less insane) means for attaining {{Immortality}} that he just doesn't know about; which makes the brief appearance of [[spoiler: [[CharacterOverlap Isaac and Miria]]]], who are ''members of the Dollars no less'', much more hilarious.

Added DiffLines:

* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Saika's "children" act an awful lot like zombies (they're even referred to as zombies by a few characters). They walk in an eerily undead fashion (usually in hordes), and if you suffer the misfortune of getting cut by one of them, you become one yourself.

* BluntMetaphorsTrauma: [[FunnyForeigner Simon]] is occasionally guilt of this, due to his breathtakingly poor Japanese. At one point when Kadota's gang are eating at Russia Sushi he addresses Kadota as "Kadota-''shachō''" and Kadota is rather confused. The intention might have been to call him "boss" in an affectionate sense, but said idiom doesn't really work since 'shachō'''( 社長) specifically means boss/president/manager ''of a company.''
