"Though never brought up in the Durarara!! anime, Walker Yumasaki is regularly noted in the Light Novels to be biracial (half-what has yet to be elaborated upon, but it's implied to be white)"
Is this true? Are there any details? (I'd be happy with which parent is Japanese, although I'd also like to know the exact nationality of the foreigner - 'Walker' sounds American to me.) --Gwern (contribs) 22:17 7 August 2011 (GMT) 22:17, August 7, 2011 (UTC)
It seems the character of Walker Yumasaki reminds me so much of Gin Ichimaru (from Bleach). And the hobby of "People Watching" Izaya is noted for is also a trade characteristic of the late captain. Could it be DRRR!! has been influenced by Kubo's works at some point?

None of Narita's other works have been seemingly influenced by Kubo's and in Walker and Gin's case, I'd say it's a instance of character tropes. It's certainly not impossible but personally I'd say it's not likely 18.104.22.168 18:55, December 25, 2013 (UTC) OmniSapien (talk) 18:55, December 25, 2013 (UTC) (forgot to log in)
Even though Narita is a fan of Bleach I don't think that he was influenced from Tite Kubo's work. Walker does resemble Gin by facial expressions, but there's is many differences between those two that I really don't want to list. - Firegod
