  • The day summer vacation begins: Mikado’s parents are killed in a car accident caused by Yagiri Pharmacies (YP). Mikado is “adopted” by YP soon after.
  • YP begins using Mikado in an experiment to create a weapon that can transmit its electric signals over anything. Mikado remains in YP due to still being alive, despite not showing signs of progress, and keeps his power hidden from Namie.
  • October: Izaya takes a job by YP and sees Mikado for the first time. The meeting causes the first change in Mikado, who wishes to see Izaya again. Seiji, who feels a connection between Mikado and Celty’s head, wishes to see Mikado again as well.

  • Izaya, who hears about the Dollars, is surprised to receive an invitation from the admin.
  • Mikado begins to recruit people from Ikebukuro to the Dollars and by chance, invites Shizuo.

Year -1

  • On New Years, Mikado hears Celty’s voice for the first time. He realizes something will happen and wishes to avoid the so called war.
  • Mikado notices Anri from the many people and feels an attraction to her. He hears about the Slashers and with the help of Kadota and Celty (contacted thru as the Dollars admin), saves Anri and gains her trust. He begins to communicate with the girl on a daily basis. He gives her a new apartment and asks that she wait for him there.
  • Aoba, who realizes how lax things seem in Ikebukuro, decides to gather people in order to form the Blue Squares (BS). He obtains a gang that completely obeys him by allowing them to obtain a higher position inside the gang through fights between each other. His goal is to raise powerful members that will win unconditionally against the YTs.
  • End of May: Mikado contacts Celty as well as Kadota and his gang as Tanaka Taro and the Dollars admin respectively. In order to gain Celty’s skills in his escape plan, he indicates that he will give Celty her head.
  • He explains to Kadota that Ikebukuro will become a battleground, possibly due to him, and asks for his help. In order to gain his trust, Mikado sends classified information he stole from YP to Kadota. Kadota then decides to help him however he needs, including finding more members for the Dollars.
  • On October, without contacting Masaomi, Mikado breaks out of YP and brings with him the other five test subjects he considers his siblings. He sends them, with Kadota’s help, to the country side where YP will not find them and sends them periodically some money in order to aid them.
    • Mikado sees Izaya and Shizuo from afar and becomes scared when he notices how many people are watching the two fight. Celty brings Mikado to an apartment he obtained and realizes that Mikado is the reason why she had lost her head and had come to Ikebukuro. The two talk and decide to take things slow but keep each other in the loop of things.
    • Anri and Mikado meet as Celty leaves the apartment. Celty realizes that Mikado is the Dollars admin when Anri thanks Mikado for helping her find a home.
    • Mikado begins to search information about Shizuo as his fight remains in his mind and learns about Kasuka.
  • Anri approaches Masaomi, who had built up an interest in her, the next day at school and tells him that Mikado is now safe. Mikado then sends a mail to Masaomi in order for them to meet the same day after classes.
    • Masaomi reunites with Mikado and the two discuss everything that has happen until that moment and about everything that will happen soon. Mikado then asks that Masaomi uses his gang to support Dollars, which he describes as the town’s news board that mustn’t raise a fist. Masaomi agrees, however, he decides not to tell his gang in order to keep the Dollars as a mysterious existence, which he calls romantic.
    • Namie realizes that the experiment with Mikado was a success and gets Izaya to obtain information on the boy’s whereabouts.
  • Izaya, without knowing the true details of Mikado’s experiments, finds Mikado within a week but decides to find out why YP is so interested in him before that. He tells Namie that Mikado is no longer in Ikebukuro and by using the information about Celty’s head, decides to start a war just so he could bring Mikado out of hiding and see what would happen.
  • Mikado, through spying on Izaya, learns of his plans and begins to build a supercomputer in order to maintain a network of information.
  • Upon learning about the disappearance of Celty’s head, Seiji tells Mika (who had recently moved to Ikebukuro in the summer) that if she wants to be with him it would only be as a replacement for the head. Mika, with a beautiful illustration of Celty’s head done by Seiji, gets an operation to change her face. Seiji accepts her love and wonders where Mikado is.
  • December: Mikado finally begins contact with Kasuka and the two begin to learn from each other. They talk about Shizuo, Mikado, of the things that might happen in the future, and how Mikado can survive once everything is finished.
  • The next day, by coincidence, a man who is recruited by YP moves into the apartment two doors down from Mikado and greets his neighbors. When Mikado meets him, they originally don’t know each other but Mikado begins to attack him, showing Anri for the first time, his evil side. After this, Anri makes the man into one of her children and promises Mikado to guard him from anything that might force him into a corner.

Year 0

  • Aoba becomes interested in the Dollars, the more he hears about them and is approached by Izaya who wishes to use Aoba’s gang to bring out Mikado out of hiding. Aoba is intrigued by the fact that the Dollars leader doesn’t go out and agrees to participate in Izaya’s game.

  • Izaya’s move (First night):

  • Aoba’s move (Second night):
    • Aoba, who had previously followed Anri home at one time, makes his move by ordering part of his gang to fight against the YT while he visits Mikado who had purposely left himself alone so Aoba would approach him. He tries to persuade Aoba to stop his plan with Izaya but is forced to show part of his true self to Aoba who threatened to hurt Anri and Masaomi.

    • While no one notices the outside, Mikado begins to send out the message, still looping the images he saw in his mind. Once Shizuo wakes up, after a whole hour, Masaomi returns to Mikado. Shizuo, in his sedated state, sees Celty’s head smiling at him.
    • Once back, Masaomi manages to convince Mikado that Shizuo is fine and Mikado hides in a corner to apologize to Kasuka, who manages to get Mikado’s address in order for the boy to apologize to Shizuo himself.

    • Shingen arrives at Mikado’s place by chance and gets into the apartment after one of Saika’s children (who lives in the same apartment building) goes in to check on Mikado. After speaking, Shingen agrees to try and help Mikado in exchange for learning about Mikado.

    • Namie moves a group of her people and sets up vans all over the city to make a net that prevents different frequencies from working. All different types of electronics stop working in a radius and all radiuses interconnect to focus on Mikado’s apartment. As an added protection, all wireless signals are also jammed.
    • Mikado, who had been napping, wakes up to silence and after a phone call, realizes that Namie is closing in on him. With no other option, Mikado leaves and takes a bag with a small laptop, a book about mythology (that he used for research to learn about Celty) and his cell phone. Since his own phone couldn’t be used, he contacted Celty using his neighbor’s phone.
    • At the same time, Celty was conversing with Shizuo before she received Mikado’s call and immediately looks for Mikado at his apartment. She gives Shizuo the task of finding and destroying the net that Namie placed.

    • Once Kadota and gang realize what’s happening they formulate a plan to find Mikado. Karisawa and Yumasaki leave a note on the forum asking others to help find Mikado before logging out, not realizing that Izaya also logged on and instigated people to help Mikado and stop Namie’s net.
