Bungo Stray Dogs Episode 5

Overview:

Atsushi is kicked out his orphanage and starving when he rescues a man from drowning. This man turns out to be from the ‘Armed Detective Agency’ and after a series of events Atsushi ends up working at the agency. Oh, and they all have really weird powers and there’s a mafia group involved.

Review:

Episode 5 remains true to form with a weird blend of over-the-top reactions from Atsushi, some dead-pan humour, visual gags and a really dark undercurrent flowing the whole way through. This episode focussed on Rampo and I found him to be the most interesting character so far. No spoilers but this episode was great. The pacing was good, the jokes didn’t detract from the story, and a nice revelation to finish. Possibly the strongest in the series so far.

Bungo Stray Dogs is available on Crunchyroll.

    1. I’m really kind of hoping this show continues to gain momentum but I’m a little worried given where things could go wrong.

I'd love to know what you think.
