posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The 16th compiled book volume of Kafka Asagiri and Sango Harukawa's Bungō Stray Dogs manga revealed on Tuesday that Takuya Igarashi and Yoji Enokido will return to respectively direct and pen the scripts for the third season of the manga's anime adaptation. BONES is also returning for the animation.
The manga 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.
The manga has inspired two previous television anime seasons, and an anime film. The first television anime adaptation 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. Funimation and Crunchyroll released the first season on home video with an English dub on March 6.
