Bungo Stray Dogs
Volume 1


Atsushi Nakajima is on the brink of death after being kicked out of his orphanage. With no food and nowhere to go, all hope seems lost—until he saves a mysterious man called Osamu Dazai from drowning. Much to his partner Doppo Kunikida's irritation, Dazai offers Atsushi a meal and reveals they work for the Armed Detective Agency, an organization of gifted individuals who take care of criminal cases the authorities cannot.

The two ask Atsushi for his assistance in tracking down a supernatural tiger that has been wreaking havoc throughout the city, and he reluctantly agrees. After they resolve the case, Dazai offers him a position in the agency. But the job is about to get a lot more dangerous as the Port Mafia, the local crime syndicate, begins to move against them. Caught in the middle of a turf war, Atsushi must master his newfound special ability in order to protect himself, his new friends, and the entire city.

Do you love interesting stories with compelling characters who each have their own motivation and ideologie?
Well than this manga is perfect for you! (kind off feel like an ad on the radio 😁)
I absolutely love this story and cannot stop constantly looking when a new chapter drops.
The story is amazing how well planned and thought out it is. It keeps on surprising me and I never lost interest while reading it. The plot twist can be a bit over the top, but there are way more positive aspects that overrule the absurdness or over the topness (is that an actual word?).
This is one of the ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (106/? eps)
I really love bsd I watched the anime like 5 times and was my hyperfixation for almost a year, but I feel like the manga is getting a bit meh and confusing since the hunting dogs arc. The last 20 chapters or so have like 5 subplots with different characters doing different things and since we only get a chapter a month (hopefully) it starts getting confusing or maybe you even forget what happened 6 chapters ago with a character that Asagiri dedices to put in the new chapter. Sometimes I even feel like he has forgot some of the subplots 😭. Also the cliffhangers ...

Preliminary (3/? eps)
I am 40 year’s old and this manga says nothing to me. Art, story or other staffs always can have some sort of quality in any manga, that’s the easiest part (even cheapest american movies do something to watch based on cinematic tricks ) but if you are looking for something to learn from it, this is completely waste of time. I am just writing this review to warn people who have limited time to read, this is not for you. Be sure you can find a better one easily.

There is nothing special about story, again and again and again some meaningless powers from ...
