The Gossipmonger is the second half of the second chapter of Durarara!! SH.

Overview[]

After Yahiro declines the proposition to search for the Headless Rider, Kuon Kotonami takes Yahiro to Rakuei Gym, where they encounter their upper-classmate Mairu Orihara. Yahiro and Mairu exchange introductions, while Kuon laments how they could be searching for the urban legend instead. Mairu offers to give them some intel on the Headless Rider, revealing her past connection her and her siblings have with it.

Upon hearing her brother Izaya was friends with the Headless Rider, Kuon pressures Mairu to call her brother only to learn that he had gone missing a year and a half prior. Kuon is about to remark how his disappearance is similar to the series of missing cases going on presently when Akane interrupts them, exclaiming the Headless Rider is not behind the disappearances. Kuon tries to extort information out of Akane, but Mairu shuts his attempts down by mentioning a classmate of Akane's had also disappeared. Akane proclaims she will be searching for her missing classmate - Ai Tatsugami - and Yahiro decides to help her in her search, wishing to want to know more about the Headless Rider. Mairu jumps in as well, and tells Kuon to pass the message along to Aoba.

Afterwards, Yahiro, Kuon and Akane return home, leaving Mairu behind. As Mairu takes a break on the benches, she is approached by one of the instructors, Mikage Sharaku. Mikage questions her on the two high school boys earlier, particularly Yahiro. She then goes on to remark the scars she spotted on Yahiro's hands, which she concluded they could only have been made from teeth he had punched out.

Trivia[]

  • Mairu mentions a "Kisa-senpai" and Traugott, characters from the Naritaverse (Wednesdays Smiling with Otsuberu and Vamp!, respectively).
