Both of these shows are what I would call truly "modern" animes. Though cell phones and such have been featured in animes for years, these shows both use modern technology and the power of the internet heavily as a part of the plotline and center around the power of connectivity and the internet generation.
Each of these series have a lot of things going on that make it rather confusing and hard to keep up with, but manage to be great series. Other than that, it is kind of just a feeling that draws these series together in my mind.
Durarara and Eden of the East are two exciting, by the seat-of-your-pants type shows. With very interesting yet mysterious plots, they keep you guessing until the last minute. If you liked the fast paced action of one be sure to check out the other!

Both series have a similar atmosphere and setting (both are set in a big city) and both have a large amount of characters and you get to find out about each of them, although Durarara!! has more. There are also gangs involved with both anime. If you liked one, you should definitely check out the other.
Both K and Durarara have plots involving students who get themselves involved and large power struggles between rivaling gangs. Both casts are large, but full of memorable characters. Both contain supernatural elements as well. Furthermore, both of these have the setting be a large city.
In both K and Durarara!!, you get to see things through the viewpoints of various characters. Numerous questions are raised. Who is the good guy? Who is the bad guy? Is this character as innocent as they claim to be? What do they have to do with anything? With large casts and lots of stuff happening at once, you may want to remember names and faces. The story doesn't make much sense in either series until later on as things start to come together, so be prepared to buckle up.
There are still a few more things these two share - both are set in a large city, there are different gangs going at each other, and there's even some supernatural stuff going on to spice things up. It's undeniable - if you liked one, you should definitely be interested in the other.

Blood Blockade Battlefront pretty much reminded of me Durarara because of the anime style and characters. Both had action, comedy and good characters
Both shows center around a main character that has come to a new city and finds themselves surrounded by a unique set of individuals. Both animes are also set in cities where things that would be crazy anywhere else are just another day there. Both have action, comedy, and intresting characters. The feel of the Blood Blockade Battlefront also reminded me of Durara in that the plot gets better and more complex as the show continues. In my opinion Durarara is the superior show, but both are worth a watch, so if you like one you should check the other out.
The information spreads like fire and the thrill is unmatched. Just like Drrr!!, something is brewing, and every episode will tell you a bit of each characters' story. Also, the side humour. Don't forget that!
