Funimation announced additional cast members for its English dub of the Bungo Stray Dogs anime. The additional cast includes:

  • Patrick Seitz as Doppo Kunikida
  • Vic Mignogna as Rampo Edogawa
  • Spike Spencer as Junichirō Tanizaki
  • Lucien Dodge as Kenji Miyazawa
  • Erica Lindbeck as Akiko Yosano

Previously announced cast members include:

  • Max Mittelman as Atsushi Nakajima
  • Kaiji Tang as Osamu Dazai

Funimation will release the series on home video on March 6. In addition to the regular edition, Funimation will also offer a limited edition with a chipboard box, art book, and author bookmarks.

The first television anime adaptation of Kafka Asagiri and Sango Harukawa's Bungō Stray Dogs manga aired in April-June 2016, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. The anime's second 12-episode series aired from October-December 2016, and Crunchyroll again streamed the series as it aired. An anime film will open in Japan on March 3.

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.
