The official Twitter account for the anime adaptations of Kafka Asagiri and Sango Harukawa's Bungo Stray Dogs manga revealed two more cast members for the Sheep group for the television anime's third season on Wednesday. Masaaki Mizunaka will play Shirase, and Yuuna Mimura will play Yuan. The characters will debut in episode 27 on April 19.

Yuuna Mimura as Yuan

The season premiered on April 12, and Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs.

The main cast and staff from the previous two television anime seasons and film are returning for the third season. Takuya Igarashi and Yoji Enokido return to respectively direct and pen the scripts for the season. BONES is also returning for the animation.

Kenichi Suzumura will join the anime's cast as the character Katai Tayama. Tayama is a hacker who has known Kunikida for a decade. A former Armed Detective Agency member, he now lives as a shut-in in his apartment.

GRANRODEO performs the opening theme song "Setsuna no Ai," and Luck Life performs the ending theme song "Lily." Both groups have previously performed theme songs for the previous television anime and the Bungo Stray Dogs: Dead Apple film.

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 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.

Yen Press is publishing the manga in English.

The manga has inspired two previous television anime seasons, and an anime film.
