I've never read any of the stories by any of the authors that are in this series, and most of my knowledge of them comes from Bungou Stray Dogs. But I'm basically only here for the pretty boys and the voice actors anyway, so for me this show is delivering quite nicely! With the added bonus of a talking cat.

Why does Nick's link in the discussion of Ryosuke Nakamura's thirsty shot composition lead to a Discord log-in page? Is he hanging out in chat 24/7 waiting for someone to drop by and discuss it? (I'm not a gamer and don't have a Discord account, and I'm gonna pass on creating one just to find out)

At least the article got me interested in seeing Aoi Bungaku. As for Taint Fighters, it's been ok so far (I much prefer Touken Ranbu's sword boys, which has the same plot except history instead of literature), though I might lose interest by the time it returns from quarantine.

I do have a Discord and that link does not work.
My guess is they clicked "Copy Message Link" rather than "Copy Link".
So when they made the web version they pasted the wrong URL.

I dropped this show faster than you drop a hot potato. I lie. I did watch all 3 episodes and then got pissed off that Dazai has to scream all his lines and be such a drama queen, amongst other things. So I went and rewatched the first season of Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru and reread all the Bungo Stray Dogs manga I have.

And I do love me pretty anime boys, but I draw the line somewhere. I did fail to make the "taint" connection. Now I won't be able to forget. Thank you, guys.

Yeah it looks like something got garbled, but for those curious it's this particular shot from Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash

The funny thing is that both TR and B&A share the same publisher, DMM but this one is based off a browser game, similar to KanColle.

I thought TR was also a browser game, too? I keep meaning to get I to it, but alas I’m lazy.
