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.

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.

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

Mixed Feelings
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.

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 ...
