    SANTA MONICA, CA (May 28, 2011) – Aniplex of America Inc. announced today that its breakout anime hit show Durarara!! will make its U.S. network television debut on Adult Swim in June. The 26-episode Durarara!! series is slated to air during the cable network’s Saturday evening programming block, strengthening an already robust line-up of popular anime shows. Subsequent episodes (in English language dub) thereafter will be made available online through AdultSwim.com.

    Adult Swim matches up perfectly with such an unpredictable show like Durarara!!” says Hideki Goto, president of Aniplex of America. “We are very excited with this opportunity. We hope many more people will have chance to watch Durarara!!.”

    Best TV related news I've heard in a long, long time. I'll be watched for sure since I didn't when the series first came out.

      A pleasant surprise to see this on Adult Swim (or any anime on TV). The slot is likely replacing Kekkaishi. I may still watch it again even though I have the DVDs with Part 3 on route to me.

        This is cool news. Hopefully it will be (a relative) success for Adult Swim. I don't have cable anymore, but I will look forward to watching it on AdultSwim.com. I haven't seen the dub yet.

              Very nice. Since I'm waiting for a BD release, this gives me a chance to see it with the dub.

                Nice one, Aniplex! Finally, a great anime on American TV that didn't just get on there because it's related to an earlier anime. Of course I have the first two sets and the third one just shipped, but this is something that really deserves mainstream attention, so I'm really happy for it.

                  Definitely cool to hear right after the Syfy thing. Too bad I don't have cable--I'd actually have something to watch.

                      So it turns out that Durarara, and not Inuyasha the Final Act, was the third title Adult Swim acquired. I knew it would come on TV someday, though I thought that SyFy was the obvious choice until the channel pulled the plug on its anime block. Kekkaishi finishes up tonight, so it's great timing. I am so looking forward to this.

                          I wonder if the broadcast will include the two DVD-only episodes.

                            The PR noted 26 episodes, so you should be safe there.

                              I'm not entirely convinced this is the case. It seems to me like too much time has passed for the two licensing announcements to be related, unless the PR says as much.
