ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D – Complication PV (Durarara!! OP2)

With the full version of the second Durarara opening theme having been leaked over a week in advance, I’ve been listening to a it fair bit like I mentioned back when episode 19 aired. I even threw it up on the sidebar for a while for those who were interested. Well today is the official release of the single and along with the limited edition is the PV for it you see above. It’s not a bad one either, but the best part of it is still the song itself. As good as the TV size version is already, the full version has a longer lead in and rap portions which together make the song sound so much better. I just don’t seem to get sick of it regardless of how much I’ve listened to it. It’s likely because the song switches the tempo up at various parts, offering a bit of everything, before coming on strong every time it gets back to the chorus. If you haven’t listened to it already and watch the series, then I really recommend doing so!

    First comment!
    Kewlio, the official release! This really is a great song, and I agree with what you’ve said, Divine, though it wasn’t quite as in depth. :P
    Can’t wait to watch the rest of Durarara!!

    As much as I love this song, I find the intro quite long. It was a full 45 seconds before the singer started. I know it was more for effect, but I didn’t think it required that long. I enjoy the chorus more than the rapping too. But everyone’s got their opinions.

    A week in advance? I’ve had the full version of the song in my iTunes since April 27th. I didn’t know it wasn’t out yet.

    I’ve been listening to this in the side bar to the left for a while, and I really love it. I’m pretty obsessed with it, considering I kept replaying it for like an hour straight :P

    I really like this song, but I also agree with Pw3age comment about the intro being too long. That doesn:t deter me from listening this song every day though :P

    I’m loving the music from DRRR and Angel Beats. Total happy camper. I manage to watch the whole OP and ED for every episode of DRRR, but now that I have the full song it’s going in my car.

    the reason why they didn’t put the other guitar into the first chorus may haunt me for the rest of the month…

    lol, did I see shizuo came as a cameo, throwin’ some stuff at 4.09? xD

    Sweet! I love the song, and I also never get sick of it. Thanks for the post!

    @mehblah. That was actually a copter flying through the tunnel. Doesn’t make sense though.

    Japanese rap has to be one of the few rap I would actually listen to. ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D is a great band.

    I loved Durarara songs except the 2nd ED. Still didn’t grow on me yet.
    This song is awesome! Thanks for posting it.

    Interesting, it’s a male band. My viewing habits could skew it, but it seems to me that most groups used for anime openings and endings are composed of women.

    i love this song. +1 best song of this season.

    Awesome PV. Can’t believe that this band has only 3 guys! Is it me, but is the same vocalist did the rapping as well? If he is, then he is a very versatile artist. ^_^

    NICE song! heard it so many times, still not tired of it! I wish there are songs like this!

    The intro was long, but in the TV version, it was too short.
