It is a commercial and entertainment district of Tokyo and the largest city in Toshima-Ku. It is also the home of many famous myths as well as infamous color gangs that fight for territory within Ikebukuro. A certain legend that is often floated around the district is that of the Dollars. A gang that was both feared and respected but mysteriously vanished a couple years ago, the numbers of the gang were record breaking and were known for accepting everyone who wanted in. After they had vanished and territory within the city opened up, new color gangs began to form and thus we begin a new era Ikebukuro.

Color Gangs are sectioned groups of youth that align under the banner of a certain, color. The groups would walk in isolated packs as a means of representing their selves and claiming territories as their own. And in some occurrences when another color gang trespasses on said territory they are enthralled to protect it. Results like this creating rivalries between color gangs and often large brawls within the streets of Ikebukuro.
Legend or Reality
To most, myths are nothing more than stories told by mothers to keep their children from staying up too late or sneaking out. Or maybe even to give representation to a belief or feelings. Sometimes they are even falsified efforts to bring a bright dream to reality. As such, many of these things are correct- and most things of legend are false. But not all. In the underworld of Ikebukuro there are stories of things that are hard to explain, things that many would think impossible. Whether it be a headless motorcycle rider zipping through the district in a flash, or a killer who brainwashes those they harm. Though few and discrete, under Ikebukuro's surface lie things of fairy tail.
Now, to out story...
Ikebukuro has been peaceful for the past couple years after the disbanding of the remaining color gangs and the disappearance of the Dollars. Though, a new generation of youth is coming to that age and have rekindled the fire that was once thought to be extinguished. New color gangs begin to form and the Ikebukuro underworld is once again beginning to become unveiled to the people. And as these youths delve deeper into the unknown, no one knows what they will find.
Hello guys/gals/sirs/ma'ams~ I'm here to bring to you a Durarara!! based roleplay that I'm hoping will survive long-term. If you're unfamiliar with the it, I'm sorry you're missing out, but nonetheless even if you have no information on it you are welcome to join. The basic idea is people 'mostly early teens to young adults' are within the town of Ikebukuro looking to find ways to entertain themselves, make a name for themselves, and mostly pursue their own goals and ambitions. Some will do this alone with their owns story and reasoning for such, others will seek the help of a group of people 'Color Gangs' to achieve these outcomes.
Now I know this seems kind of open-ended and directionless, but I'm hoping to find some talented people who will enjoy just that. My idea for this RP is for us to create the plot ourselves through our characters interactions with one another and how they get along, or don't get along. And while these things happening, we can discover ways to throw our characters into a crazy plot just like the original. But this is an Interest Check, so thinking about stuff like that is a bit far to be so decided. In conclusion, I will be looking for 5-6 active people showing interest to make an OOC. Once that's made I'll throw down a character skeleton and we will get these misadventures on the road.
