Bungou Stray Dogs S2 and S3 Review — B-

Famous authors fight mafia wars with superpowers.

My opinion of this has improved since the first season. I think that’s more a reflection of me than a reflection of the show, however. Looking back on my review, everything I said before still holds. I couldn’t explain the plot of this show if I tried. Honestly, I was kind of confused about who the bad guy in the last arc was, even.

But whatever. I still enjoyed watching it. The characters are dumb but they grew on me. By the end I even liked the tiger guy. I feel bad for kimono girls and raggedy ann (they’re also good) but shipping him with the emo vampire dude is Very Good.

Sometimes I wonder if anyone knows who I’m talking about when I write about anime, since I’m so bad at remembering names.

Anyway, it was fun and crazy and always served for some good mindless entertainment. I’ve increasingly come to value that.
