New characters are based on Gone With the Wind, The Scarlet Letter authors

The official website for the Bungō Stray Dogs television anime announced two additional cast members for the anime's second season on Wednesday. The new cast members are:


Kaori Nazuka (Akame ga Kill's Chelsea and Code Geass's Nunally Lamperouge/Vi Britannia) will voice Margaret M.
Special Ability: "Gone With The Wind"



Tarusuke Shingaki (Big Order's Abraham Louis Fran and Fate/Zero's Kariya Matō) will voice Nathaniel H.
Special Ability: "The Scarlet Letter"

The real-life American authors Margaret Mitchell and Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote the novels Gone With the Wind and The Scarlet Letter, respectively.

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 band SCREEN mode will perform the anime's new opening theme song "Reason Living."

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, some of these writers solve mysteries as part of the "Armed Detective Agency," while others appear as antagonists.

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