Looking for a change, Mikado moves from the countryside to bustling Ikebukuro to attend the same high school as his best friend, Masaomi. Though navigating a new school and friendships can prove tough by itself, Mikado also finds an overwhelming number of new delights and dangers in the district he now calls home. From a friendly Russian sushi bar to the violent color gangs, to even an urban legend in the form of a black motorcycle rider, each resident of Ikebukuro is unique and frightening. But the town is smaller than it seems at first, and these strange events appear to be connected. Will the growing storm sweep up the transplanted country boy and his friends or will Mikado find himself at the center of a dramatic change for Tokyo?
i think that is anime is alot dirtyer then durarara! but they have the the same feel to it so if u like one you will like the other.
These series are perfect for those who love complicated plot threads and characters who are not always what they seem to be.
Both series focus on building characters up and slowly showing more and more of them to really make the viewer care and root for them.
Both series have surprising twists and turns and often keep you watching just to see what happens next.
Durarara!! is a bit more fast paced from the start and We without wings has a gentler buildup. I think of it as a rollercoaster. Durarara!! is a very steep fast climb and We Without Wings is a more staid climb.
Once they reach their peaks though, the differences end. They both become intense and runaway plots as everything thunders to amazing conclusions.

Two shows with a very similar "feel". Both have for the most part a silly and easygoing attitude with fantasy elements, slapstick, and fanservice, but both also have some serious and surprisingly impactful twists along the way.
