    Best Anime so far (2016)
    This anime is really good so far, and I know i can't judge it quite yet, considering it is only on episode 3, but it is really good. If you like funny, supernatural, mystery sort of anime, this is perfect! It's about a boy (16? -ish) who has special powers he doesn't no about, and cannot control them. But he gets picked up (ship it BTW) by another man with special powers, named Dazai. Together the ...

    A Solid Must-Watch for Any Anime Fan!
    I had zero knowledge about Bungou Stray Dogs before it came out but i'm so glad I clicked play!
    The characters introduced are lovable and their interactions are well written, with Dazai and Kunikida being so different but working together flawlessly.
    After 9 episodes in, I would have liked Atsushi to have grown a little more confident however this still may happen in the future. I would also ...

    Misleading Anime - Neither Dark nor an Action
    Disclaimer: I write this only after watching 5 episodes, but I think it's enough.

    While the anime promises a dark, beautiful shonen/drama the action just doesn't match up. Most scenes rest too long on one person speaking, or one flash of something that just happened but that you never get to see. There have been two fights so far, and I stretch to call them fights. One was mostly talking with ...

  • Amazing Anime, recommend it
    What gets me most about this anime, is how every episode is unpredictable, and every episode isn't just some 'episode with no meaning' , it seems it all leads up to the finale and anticipation is something you look forward to regarding the next episode

  • It's a funny show, with a strong plot, in the fashion, it's there.
    The characters are eccentric but respond to different situations more or less exactly the same as the previous one, unless something extreme happened to that particular character. When I first started to watch it, I was laughing more than anything and taking it pretty light hearted. Which I gained more from than if I expected something darker like Tokyo Ghoul, or even better still, Grimgar of ...

    A vast improvement on the first season.
    The second season of Bungou Stray Dogs builds on the successes, and some of the flaws, of the first. For the most part, it’s an improvement on almost all aspects of the first season, including the animation, soundtrack and even the story. The story is mentioned in a skeptical light because the second season still follows the same format as the first, although not in the first four episodes known ...

  • BST or how to tell 3 stories in one season.
    Best fight scenes, Best main characters, Best drama arc.
    The 4 first episodes are a masterpiece.
    I like the following episodes 'cause i appreciate how they introduced new characters into the game with ,interesting yet not too cliché, powers.
    As usual we get a smooth ending, and I am not disappoionted in any of their "scenario choices".

    Sry for the low quality english.

  • Reminded me why I love anime so much
    I have so much to say about this series that I don't know where to begin. In short, I'd just say WATCH IT NOW PLEASE because you won't regret a second of it. After going through an anime slump, I came across this show around the end of season 1. I decided to give it a go since I knew it was animated by BONES as well as directed by the same person as OHSHC and Soul Eater, and I am so glad I did. ...
