    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 ...

    One of My Favorite Anime Series
    Bungo Stray Dogs is definitely an underrated anime series. I love how this series blends action, drama, and comedy together. The story is intriguing and the characters each have individual personalities. The art and music are superb and still continue to amaze me. I'm proud to say that Bungo Stray Dogs is one of my favorite series of all time.

    Bungo Stray Dogs is a masterpiece worth celebrating
    This was actually the show that got me into watching anime and reading manga. The first episode is a little slow, like all animes, but as the show progresses, this world comes to life. The animation is absolutely breathtaking and the characters have a depth to them that is missing in other animes. Everything is planned carefully and very clever, kudos to Mr. Bones.

    Honestly, what a show
    This show has kept me hooked from the start of season 1 all the way through to where it's at.
    The character development and backstories are incredibly thought through and explained amazingly. You'll love one character and immediately fall in love with the next.
    The show has done an amazing job keeping the mystery aspect I love to see in shows with not just the story but with some of the ...

    This is my favorite anime of all time
    Seriously, no other show has captured my attention like this one. There's something for everyone here; it's funny, it's dark, it's mysterious, it's dramatic, it's over-the-top, it's something much deeper than what it seems.
    The premise of the show is one of the most creative I've ever seen. Most of the characters contain a supernatural special ability, unique to each one of them, and those ...
