Synopsis

Nakajima Atsushi was kicked out of his orphanage, and now he has no place to go and no food. While he is standing by a river, on the brink of starvation, he rescues a man whimsically attempting suicide. That man is Dazai Osamu, and he and his partner Kunikida are members of a very special detective agency. They have supernatural powers and deal with cases that are too dangerous for the police or the military. They're tracking down a tiger that has appeared in the area recently, around the time Atsushi came to the area. The tiger seems to have a connection to Atsushi, and by the time the case is solved, it is clear that Atsushi's future will involve much more of Dazai and the rest of the detectives!

Should you watch it?
Try the first episode, if you don't like that type of immature comedy or the way the characters act stupidly then you should just drop it because that is a big part of the anime. However for those that will continue it there are some good action scenes waiting in the later episodes.

In short: good action, decent characters and bad comedy (imo).

Overall 5
The anime doesn't really know what it wants to be between comedy, action or detective show. It seems it tries too much and achieving not much as consequence. The comedy is hit or miss and if it is a miss read more

This review is written after watching the first 4 episodes, mild spoilers of the first episode might appear.

Bungou Stray Dogs is probably one of the most disapointing animes this season and it is well under all of my expectations. When I first heard of the anime I found out that most of the main characters were gonna be named after Japanese authors and their superpowers named after that author's most famous work, making the story amazing for literature geeks. (One of the first characters we meet is Dazai Osamu, who is shown floating head down in a river, while the author with the same name read more

Mystery and comedy don't usually go together, and this show is a mix of both genres.

*May contain minor spoilers*

So, if you strongly dislike comedy, this show is not for you. Why? Because a big part of this show consists of comedic acts. Since Bungou Stray Dogs (BSD) is done by the same production house that did Ouran High School Host Club, it makes sense. Those who have watched Ouran High would be familiar with the gags in BSD.

The storyline of BSD is quite interesting, although at first it seemed simple. Atsushi the MC was kicked out of his orphanage, so he's practically homeless. Then he read more

Review until episode 4, NO SPOILERS:

Story:
I like the story, it seems fresh compared to the slice of life, more fan service animes I've been watching. I have the give the story, which seems unique, a 9.

Art:
I like the art at most time. It has a few scenes that I personally enjoy for the detail in art. Some scene shower, use a different style which I don't personally like. I'd give it an 8 in personal opinion, but 9 for detail and beauty.

Sound:
The music and voice acting is amazing. Point blank. I'll give it a 9, only because one of the character is somewhat monotone (even read more
