As an avid fan of the supernatural genre, Bungou Stray Dogs had me at the description. A group people solving supernatural problems? A detective agency? What’s not to look forward to?
Damn! I still miss Ghost Hunt.
The first episode wasn’t anything mind blowing, but it was a nice setup to establish two main characters Atsushi Nakajima and Osamu Dazai. It had it’s random comedic moments which were a little out of the place and the solution to the first mystery was pretty predictable.
However, it managed to make me care for Nakajima. It also made me curious about the eccentric detective Dazai, who is shrouded in mystery and I suspect, the relation between Nakajima and Dazai is going to be an entertaining one.
Being one of Bones studios venture, the animation quality is as expected, especially action scenes are well done.
While I wouldn’t consider Bungou to be anything amazing, I’m going to continue watching it a little more to form a proper opinion.
