The anime's second half (starting with the 13th episode) will premiere on Tokyo MX and WOWOW on Monday, October 5 at 25:05 (effectively Tuesday, October 6 at 1:05 a.m.). The band SCREEN mode will perform the anime's new opening theme song "Reason Living," and Luck Life will perform the ending theme song "Kaze ga Fuku Machi" (The Town Where the Wind Blows).
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 Bungo 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.
