Bungou Stray Dogs season 3 has been announced!

Good news for all fans of Bungou Stray Dogs: the third season has finally been announced on the official Twitter page!

After the great succes of the movie, Bungou Stray Dogs: Dead Apple, we are blessed with a third season of this great anime! The series has been successful so far: manga, anime adaptation, an OVA, a movie and a mobile game (if you want to play it in English, download from Google Play or App Store).

The one thing that makes this series so popular and unique is the fact that all the characters are based off famous authors and their works. And the good thing is it’s not just Japanese authors, but international authors as well, so if you are a bookworm and wish to see a portrayal of your favourite author together with his works you might find them here. Not only that, but it’s also packed with action and unique superpowers that make everything so entertaining and refreshing.

And if you are not convinced if you should watch it or not, I will give you a short plot summary:

Nakajima Atsushi, an 18-year old boy gets kicked out of the orphanage. While starving on a river bank, he saves a man from drowning. Instead of being thankful, the man is just mad at his suicide attempt failure. He introduces himself as Osamu Dazai and offers Atsushi food, together with his colleague, Kunikida Doppo. Atsushi tells them how he believes a tiger is following him around, and since the other two were investigating the same beast they offer their help.

Many things happen, but Atsushi ends up joining them in their work, at a place called Armed Detective Agency. This is an agency of gifted individuals that each possess an “ability”, or something we would normally call superpower. Atsushi, together with his eccentric colleagues, will investigates cases and fight vicious enemies, such as the Port Mafia.

We will have to wait for a release date for the third season, but until then we can just rejoice at these news.
