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!

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

TL;DR: A lot more dark and serious than the first season. Definitely a step-up from what the first season offered.

1st arc (13-16): Osamu Dazai and the Dark Era
2nd Arc (17-?): Guild Arc; Double Black

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For the people who never watched Bungou Stray Dogs:
What’re you doing here? Go watch the first season.

“The people I've met back then made who I am now.”

Story:

The first arc is a prequel to the anime. It really shows you what happened in Dazai’s past, including the people that were involved in his past. read more

So my Review got took down because the admin or something said i didn't watch episode 4 and then he figured out that i did and said i could put my review back up. I still don't agree with the guidelines but i'll follow the rules because i have to.


Plot: The plot is about 3 friends named Ango Sakaguichi, Dazai Osamu and Odasaku and one day Ango goes missing and Dazai and Odasaku are thinking maybe he died or maybe he betrayed them but he was actually apart of a group named mimic that was watching the port mafia and Ango later betrays mimic read more

In the first season of Bungou Stray Dogs [文豪ストレイドッグス], covered the events surrounding [中島 敦] Nakajima Atsushi's arrival in Yokohama and subsequent joining of the Armed Detective Agency [武装探偵社] based there. From there, they introduce each character in the main cast as well as the conflict with the Port Mafia, a criminal organization in Yokohama.

In the second season of Bungou Stray Dogs [文豪ストレイドッグス], the animation was amped up significantly. The first four episodes are a prequel of sorts, covering the light novel called "Osamu Dazai and the Dark Era," which provides much background for the beloved character Osamu Dazai. Episode 5, however, picks up read more

The second season of Bungou Stray Dogs does not cease to impress. In fact, I would say that this season was a massive step-up from last season.

Story: 8/10

The story of this anime is very good, although it definitely is nowhere near the likes of other beloved animes, it does not fail to entertain. The first arc deals with Osamu Dazai's backstory in the Port Mafia. Immediately the watcher may notice that there is a significant switch in tone. The series has traded in it's more comedic style of presentation for a darker one. Honestly, I love this change especially considering that the series is dealing read more
