Bungo Stray Dogs Anime Casts Takayuki Sugo
posted on by Kevin Yuan
The official website for the Bungo Stray Dogs television anime revealed on Friday that Takayuki Sugo (Tokyo Ghoul's Yoshimura, The Heroic Legend of Arslan's Andragoras III) will play the character Herman M. The character's special ability is "Moby Dick," the title of a book by the real-life author Herman Melville.
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.
