Things picked up again this week (no whale and no Atsushi really helped) and we saw an attempt at making an alliance with the Port Mafia by the Agency. What I like about this is that both sides know they are going to cooperate because they are kind of just used to one another and neither of them like the interlopers, but they also know they don’t want to admit that so are posturing like crazy. However, posturing aside, Chuuya shows up just as Dazai knew he would when Dazai walked into the Guild’s trap to retrieve Q (who seems to mysteriously disappear during the battle at the end of this episode but whatever). Chuuya is awesome in this week’s fight and we see exactly why Chuuya and Dazai worked as partners. It’s over the top and crazy but they may have finally actually killed someone (who knows, he may turn out to just be injured like everyone else yet). It’s a fun episode and has the right mix of comedy and drama to keep you engaged and the chemistry between Chuuya and Dazai as they banter and then team up to battle is fantastic to watch.
Also, I love how Dazai just casually slips this comment to Kunikida during the opening sequence.
Bungo Stray Dogs is available on Crunchyroll.

oh yeah…i forgot that whole battle was about Q
It was almost irrelevant by the end anyway.
Ahh! I’m not caught up yet! BUT! I will say – I’ve been curious how people at the agency were going to find out his origins! I stopped after the first 4 episodes of season 2 because I think I want to just watch this one all in one go. But I really really liked the first 4 with Odasaku. I’m very sad he wasn’t a permanent recurring character.
