Bungo Stray Dogs season 2 anime review

bungo-stray-dogsThe first four episodes of Bungo Stray Dogs season 2 had little to do with season one. These episodes follow Dazai near the end of his career with the Port Mafia and introduces two characters that will be important later on to a small degree. The most important part of these four episodes is the fact that it shows how much (and how little) Dazai has changed since he joined and then left the Port Mafia. These episodes have a darker tone than season one but the series returns to normal once this story arc concludes.

Each character was able to show off their special ability. The abilities in this series are actually very interesting. They are all based off of books, poems, or short stories that the author that has inspired the character has written. The characters are also very interesting, though I find myself caring little about a few characters mainly because they don’t appear on screen enough.

The series is popular enough and the ending sets up for a season 3. I can’t wait until it airs. If you haven’t yet watched season 1 I highly recommend it to anyone. There are literary references found in the characters, there is some humour though at times it can be weak, and its just an enjoyable anime to watch.

Final Rating – 47.5/50
