When you watch him fight, he looks cool the way that Godzilla looks cool to the kid watching it. I guess that sums it up. At any rate, he's one crazy bastard. ......Gotta admit, I've got some admiration for him. Wish I could tear things up the way he does.

Ikebukuro's Most Dangerous is the third chapter of the second Durarara!! light novel.

Synopsis[]

Shuuji Niekawa is tasked to write an article with the theme "the strongest in Ikebukuro" and sets out to interview various residents of the city for their take on who it could be, gaining testimonies from people on the street, members of the Dollars and Yellow Scarves, a person connected to the police, and Haruya Shiki, Denis, Izaya Orihara, and Celty Sturluson.

While Shuuji initially dismisses the first mention of Shizuo Heiwajima, after each "strong" person testifies Shizuo to be the strongest, and he hears of his superhuman feats, Shuuji manages to get in contact with Shizuo's boss, Tom Tanaka, to set up an interview with him. Upon meeting Shizuo, he has trouble believing Shizuo to be what everyone says he is based on his appearance and demeanor. He forfeits Tom's warnings, provoking Shizuo in order to witness his rumored strength. Without warning, Shuuji is thrown across the alley.

Afterward, Shuuji is filled with pain, awe, excitement, and curiosity about Shizuo's strength and is inspired to write an article on him. Later that night, however, he is rumored to have been attacked by the slasher. Kanra brings up the incident in the chat room when the user Saika logs on again, spamming messages of wanting to cut more people and wanting to find Shizuo Heiwajima.

Quotes[]

Celty (about Shizuo): "That's it - his strength is like the power of a gun. Even comparing him to others makes no sense."
