Durarara!!, Vol. 1

Durarara!!, Vol. 1 - Ryohgo Narita, ヤスダ スズヒト, Stephen Paul I've seen people say that the DRRR!! series is cool or something but... this book sure doesn't show anything cool.
All the men get the limelight, they fight each other and get to be the cool ones. Meanwhile Celty the supposed protagonist is often beaten, humiliated and at one point cries in the arms of her abuser.
The women are in the periphery and the ones that do get some form of characterization love abusers. The author thinks this is "just love" and not abuse at all, which informs me as to how the author views life.
The actual evens of the book are honestly boring. Nothing much really happens and with all the characters around, it becomes a confusing mess at times. Also there's a Deus Ex Machina ending and our Mikado is suddenly a "bad ass". Something women aren't afforded in stories.
