Bungō Stray Dogs Anime's 2nd Half Premieres on October 5

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Kafka Asagiri and Sango Harukawa's Bungō Stray Dogs manga announced on Friday that the anime's second half (starting with the 13th episode) will premiere on Tokyo MX and WOWOW on October 5 at 25:05 (effectively October 6 at 1:05 a.m.).

The anime's staff had announced the show's split-season plans in June. The first 12 episodes aired in April to June, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.

The "battle action" story centers around a league of literary figures with supernatural powers. For example, in real life, Ryūnosuke Akutagawa wrote acclaimed stories that inspired Akira Kurosawa's Rashōmon film and the Aoi Bungaku Series anime's Jigoku Hen (Hell Screen) arc. In Bungō Stray Dogs, he has the power to transform and manipulate his cloak into a monster-like entity. Together, these writers solve mysteries as part of the "Armed Detective Agency."

Yen Press announced in July that it had licensed Asagiri and Harukawa's original manga.
