OtapediaBungo Stray Dogs Season 3

Alternate Title



“Bungo” of Bungo Stray Dogs means “literary master,” fittingly so because the characters of Bungo Stray Dogs are based on literary authors who wield superhero powers with some based on the books they wrote. These characters are the minority, caught up in being used by organizations, and face discrimination. One such organization is the Armed Detective Agency which is filled with several of them who solve mysteries and work for the mafia.


Bungo Stray Dogs began in 2012 as a manga in Young Ace magazine created by Kafka Asagiri and illustrated by Sango Harukawa. Season 3 of the anime adaptation will be directed by Takuya Igarashi with screenwriting by Yoji Enokido, who both had the same roles in the two seasons prior as well as the movie Bungo Stray Dogs: Dead Apple. The anime will once again be produced by Studio Bones, and GRANDRODEO as well as Luck Life are returning for the opening and ending themes, respectively.
