Bungou Stray Dogs Episode 31: The trials of parenthood

It looks like the story is still on standby, but I did like the thematic style of this episode. On its own, it's a combination of two side stories to explore the pasts of Atsushi and Kyouka some more.

Bungou Stray Dogs Episode 30: The mysterious girl

Compared to last week's episode, this week's episode ended up being fairly light despite the explosive opener.

Bungou Stray Dogs Episode 29: A veil of confidence

This episode was a pretty solid opening for the present day story. I liked how Fyodor was presented in this episode, and he's shaping up to be a formidable foe.

Bungou Stray Dogs Episode 28: Space and gravity

This story ended up being cool, but I thought that the episode did a lot in the end to kind of tie things up with a bow.

Bungou Stray Dogs Episode 27: The real god

This story doesn't really have any brakes, does it? This week's episode basically blazes forward from the setup in the first episode.

Bungou Stray Dogs Final Episode (24): Joining the team

Well, this ending had strong points and weak points. I liked how they introduced the concept of Akutagawa and Atsushi working together, especially Dazai's line about Akutagawa fitting a support role. Kyouka's story also resolves nicely and doesn't feel overly forced.

Bungou Stray Dogs Episode 23: Primary colors attack!

Well, this episode felt...longer than it should have. I always have an issue when this series tries too hard to beat a point home, even resorting to showing you a flashback to a scene from this episode that you just saw. At the end of the day, you can really boil the fights down to a few punches as well. That being said, the fight isn't over yet, so we might be in for something more interesting next week.

Bungou Stray Dogs Episode 22: The culprit is...

I think that the episodes that involve Rampo tend to be more interesting for me. As such, I thought the first half of the episode was pretty fun, though it was a terrible excuse for a mystery. I think Akiko had strong moments in the first half too. The second half of the episode didn't feel like much...more of a setup, I guess? I'm looking forward to seeing Akutagawa and Atsushi team up against Fitzgerald next week, though.

Bungou Stray Dogs Episode 21: Full on Cthulu

This episode's a tough one. I think the main battle of the episode was pretty cool, but there were some elements in the episode that I would consider a regression for the show. To give a quick example, I wasn't a fan of having Dazai off on the side explaining stuff again. I also would have liked to know what was so special about Lovecraft...

Bungou Stray Dogs Episode 20: White whale!

At this point, we have to be done with the super pitiful Atsushi, right? I think it's about time Atsushi got a decent episode...he's my major complaint with the series and I think this one helps. Dazai's role in the episode is a bit questionable, but the extra authors introduced in this episode make me glad the Guild exists. At least they make me feel like I actually know literature...
