Bungo Stray Dogs Anime Casts Haruka Kudou
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the Bungo Stray Dogs television anime revealed on Monday that Haruka Kudou (Honey and Clover's Hagumi, Death Note's Sayu Yagami, Captain Earth's Setsuna) will play the character Yumeno Kyūsaku. The character's special ability is "Dogra Magra," the title of a book by the real-life author Yumeno Kyūsaku.
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.
