Despite their differences in position, three men—the youngest senior executive of the Port Mafia, Osamu Dazai, the lowest ranking member, Sakunosuke Oda, and the intelligence agent, Angou Sakaguchi—gather at the Lupin Bar at the end of the day to relax and take delight in the company of friends.

However, one night, Angou disappears. A photograph taken at the bar is all that is left of the three together.

Fast forward to the present, and Dazai is now a member of the Armed Detective Agency. The Guild, an American gifted organisation, has entered the fray and is intent on taking the Agency's work permit. They must now divide their attention between the two groups, the Guild and the Port Mafia, who oppose their very existence.

A Bungou Stray Dogs (2nd season) Review - Rewritten and Revised
Spoiler-free if you have watched the first season, not so much if you haven't.

TL;DR: A lot more serious and darker than the first season. Absolute improvement from what the first season offered.

1st arc (13-16): Osamu Dazai and the Dark Era
2nd Arc (17-20): Guild Arc; Double Black
3rd Arc (21-24): Yin and Yang Arc
For the people who never watched Bungou Stray Dogs:
What’re you doing here? Go watch the first season.

If you were to ask me if I suggest watching Bungou Stray Dogs:

Bungou Sleigh Bells returns just in time for the holidays. And just like that, I’m already out of holiday puns.

To be honest, following Bambi Stray Dogs throughout the season was a surprisingly difficult task. Not just because of the weird and scattered narrative, but also because Crunchyroll changed its release schedule at least thirty-five times, just like the number of people Kyouka killed. So, my recollection of this series, which I only finished watching about twelve minutes ago, is rather hazy.

Looking back at the first cour from the spring, Stray Doggos was a decent time that seemed to have some sort of identity crisis. It read more

After watching the first season of Bungou Stray Dogs, I have to admit that the author made a rather bold attempt at constructing such a show based on literal characters. At its core, the series has an extraordinary cast of characters. By that, I mean they are able to perform supernatural feats that defies the logic of nature. The second season can also be described as extraordinary in more ways than one.

One of the most unique dynamics about Bungou Stray Dogs is about its characters. There’s such a diverse and colorful cast. The main cast consists of the Armed Detective Agency with each character having read more

Let me begin by saying I wish I could rate this show a 12/10 in all categories except Art that can stay at 10.

This show was the anime of the year for me, and that's coming from a huge dragonball fanboy and huge Food wars fan.

What this show did so well, particularly in the 2nd season, was taking the time to highlight and make full use out of its large cast of characters. Amazing story and great battle sequences aside, the show in its 2nd season did a much better job with explaining plot concepts and the characters all improved read more
