TIME OF THE SEASON Spring 2016 Edition: BUNGO Stray DOGS

You know your childhood is fucked up when you’re an orphan and not even the orphanage wants you and the way they booted that guy out…..

That’s a “fuck you, never come back and die in a ditch, motherfucker.”

Too harsh? Well, eh…….this is Bungo Stray Dogs.

Plot Summary: Kicked out of his orphanage and on the verge of starving to death, Nakajima Atsushi meets some strange men. One of them, Dazai Osamu, is a suicidal man attempting to drown himself in broad daylight. The other, bespectacled Kunikida Doppo, nervously stands by flipping through a notepad. Both are members of the “Armed Detective Agency” said to solve incidents that even the military and police won’t touch. Atsushi ends up accompanying them on a mission to eliminate a man-eating tiger that’s been terrorizing the population… In the virtual city of Yokohama are individuals bearing the name of Bungo, “literary masters,” who possess unusual powers likened to that name.

First Thoughts: Ah, so we have another type of procedural anime where we go along with this guys solving crimes that most normal agencies won’t touch and of course, we look at it in the eyes of an newcomer in the form of Nakajima, who I said before in the opener that this guy has the worst luck of being an orphan and kicked out of the orphanage at that. From the opener, it looks like the show could be like the other ones in this season that really has some potential and allure although I thought some of the jokes are mostly hit and miss and I do detect some flavor of other shows like Baccano! and Blood Blockade Battlefront on there, I just hope it’s not trying to copy and paste from them because that could hurt them than help.

I’m interested in seeing more of this so once again, I’m going with CONTINUE on a Medium Priority. HA! 12 new shows in and so far, I like the majority of these first impressions. Keep that shit up, Spring 2016. You are blowing away the last 2 years!!

This is MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid saying I would probably fuck up things if I had powers like that.
