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, Ango 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, Ango 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 organization, 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.

It's a solid improvement on the first season with a couple of strong emotional through lines. It all felt very surface level in S2, and while not everyone has evolved beyond that, there's been some genuine progression for more than a few characters, including a great deal from Dazai who stole the show in the first arc. The final fight works well enough to get your blood pumping in the usual Shonen way while adding something a little extra for our characters to get over. The use of gifts has also gotten more interesting and impactful. With an MC who still seems pretty basic and ...

English: First let me congratulate you on this wonderful season
The first arc about the past of daizai was great, I like this model of explains well the past of the character, at the end of the season we see that the past is much deeper still
The guild arc left me very neutral, it was neither good nor bad, it can be said that the anime did the basics the right way.
The development of the protagonist is kind of dubious yet but I have nothing to complain about
Anime super recommended but would not get into my favorites, Anime 8/10

PT-BR: Primeiro deixe-me ...

I wanted to like this show, but the plot is just awful, and pointless.

The villain of the story is some billionaire, Francis Fitzgerald, and it was loosely stated that he wanted to capture Atsushi so that he could help him find a book. But instead of contacting and directly paying a starving orphan or hiring the agency he works for, he decides to put a hit on him through a mob. Then for some unknown reason decides to destroy the city? Francis' power is to be able to burn through his money and convert that to strength. But why not just spend that ...
