    Hey you, want to watch something weird and wonderful?
    I don't even know where to begin with this anime. It's incredibly off beat and certainly doing its own thing, and to be frank, there's really nothing like it on Crunchy Roll. The visual style, production values and overall timing of the show are nothing short of spectacular. I really don't need to make this review very long because if you're tired of seeing high school stories and want something ...

    FULL SEASON 1 AND 2 REVIEW (SPOILER FREE!)
    HERE'S A VIDEO VERSION IN CASE YOU DON'T WANT TO READ THIS WHOLE REVIEW! https://youtu.be/3ZsmcmewhGY

    When it came to the Fall 2016 anime season, this was really the only show I kept up with. I don’t know if you can’t tell, but I don’t usually talk about trending topics and that’s usually because I’m not on top of the 10’s of shows coming out each season. I was kind of looking ...

    Fantastic supernatural thriller & black comedy
    I have never read the manga this is based on, but so far after two episodes, this anime really holds up strong.

    EDIT: I just want to address some points that I've seen come up now.

    "There's too much comedy": We got a taste of this in episode 3, but the series gets really dark and brutal. Having recently gone ahead and read the manga in my spare time I can say that for a fact. ...

    A Review after Bungo Stray Dogs 2 completed
    This has become one of my favorite anime ever. This anime has it's own style. It is easily the best anime of 2016 for me (along with Re: Zero). It has a motif of literature (like he names people after authors). There is a diverse group of characters. You will even like some villains. This anime doesn't leave you going "ugh that's all I get?" or the feeling of being left hanging. The endings are ...

    It's Amazing and Great!
    This show is smart, funny, creative, and suspenseful. It also keeps me guessing and leave me shocked at every new revelation.

    While the names can be hard to pronounce, the concept of having powers based on famous poems is very fresh.

    This show went from 0 to 100, real quick.

    THE Best Anime of 2016
    Seriously is a life changing type of anime. The characters they use, are depictions of real life authors/artists. It makes you go research the authors, then re-watch it to find little easter eggs... it's a totally re-newed experience.

    The storyline is a little comedic in season 1, but as soon as you hit season 2... it gets so awesome. I loved the beginning of season 2.

    Please watch and ...

    Detective Supernatural Comedy
    [Review based up to episode 12, end of season 1]

    Comedy, action, supernatural, secretive organization, poverty, suicide...... this seems like a lot to take in, but Bungo Stray Dogs does it all, and it has a good plot and great characters. It starts off more as a comedy but gets deeper as time goes on. The animation is amazing, especially the backgrounds and the action sequences aren't bad ...

    Please just watch it.
    My new favorite show (and I thought nothing could ever beat Haikyu). It has an amazing plot and very well-paced. If your a fan of action, mystery, fantasy, or even comedy, this is for you!!! I was hesitant about mystery shows, but boy was I in for a ride with this!! I highly recommend. Took me so long to finally get started w/ this show but i finished it in about 3 days. Cant wait for Season ...

    A mix of beautiful storylines, plot, character dramatization. The perfect cup of coffee.
    What a beautiful Anime. The perfect dose of action, drama, thriller and storytelling. Its not very becoming that a anime of the new generation can capture the tenacity that is required to keep you entertained but also so invested in the characters personalities and emotions that you cant help but feel a deep sense of connection to the pain they feel. Season 2 kicks of and to me it is the better of ...

    Okay, I'm totally hooked.
    Honestly, I only began watching anime regularly again about two years ago, after almost a decade. So I'm not much of an authority. But I really think Bungo Stray Dogs is one of the best animes--hell, one of the best tv series--airing right now. The art/animation, the characters, the unique way everything is put together. The author references are fun too, at least for someone like me who was a ...
