The premise of these reviews is simple: watch the first episode of a series and then immediately sit down to record a review mini-podcast. The reviews are five- to ten-minutes long and entirely off the cuff. As always we only review new shows (so no sequels or continuations) and try to avoid anything that just looks outright awful.

    I followed the Bungo Stray Dogs manga for a while and did quite enjoy it, but I haven’t read it in ages for some reason , so the start of the anime was a good occassion for me to pick up from where I had left it.

    The characters (and the powers) aren’t really that strongly linked to the actual persons, though there are some neat references. The suicide-thing of Dazai in Bungo Stray Dogs makes a lot more sense if you realize that the real Dazai had tried to commit suicide like four times.

    The series is based on ‘classic’ writers, but they designed three ‘modern’ characters as part of a marketing campaign two, three years ago. So Dan Brown does not actually appear in the series. Though they did turn the other two promotion characters of Yukito Ayatsuji (Another, The Decagon House Murders) and Natsuhiko Kyogoku (Summer of the Ubume) into a book earlier this year, so perhaps in the future…

    I had zero idea that these characters wee based on authors; a benefit of not reading descriptions beforehand.

    Now that I know this, there will be much pausing for an internet search
