I mean, seriously, what the hell is going on with Bungou Stray Dogs these days? The show has been putting out banger after banger episodes every week. Each new episode brings in something totally unexpected and leaves you on a cliffhanger. I think I am addicted to Bungou Stray Dogs S5.
I wait for every new episode like a well… stray dog lol. Jokes aside this season has just been one twist after another. Some things are built up and some things just shock you out of nowhere. It has been exhilarating to watch so far.
So welcome to the first mid-season review of this season. And I had to go with Bungou Stray Dogs S5 for this one. Especially after the latest episode, I had to talk about the series this week. So let’s get started.
What do I think of Bungou Stray Dogs S5?
I apologize in advance for any spoilers, but it’s difficult to discuss the recent episodes without revealing certain details.
The one person we thought to be the most reasonable member of the Hunting Dogs, their leader, Fukuchi Ouchi turns out to be the most twisted among them. It is kind of fitting but just before that revelation, we learned just how much Fukuzawa trusted Fukuchi. We are shown that they’ve known each other since they’re teens and Fukuzawa was sure Fukuchi would help them.
But then in one fell swoop, the whole trajectory of the arc changed. It is revealed that Fukuchi is the mastermind behind all of the things that lead to the Agency’s predicament and the person who has the Page. Rampo figured this out just in the nick of time and reveals his ability to Atsuhi before bailing. And then we get one of the best fights in the series so far. Atsushi and Akutagawa vs. Fukuchi. Fukuchi is just a beast throughout the fight.
And then in the latest episode, we now have vampires in the series too? What the hell is going on here lol? The plot so far has been absolutely incredible. We haven’t had action-heavy episodes in the series for a while now, we finally got more of those too. I love the pacing of this season, it really draws you in. And those perfectly executed cliffhanger ends leave you beginning for more every single time.
That’s all for now. I am extremely pleased with Bungou Stray Dogs S5 so far. It is an amazing season. Easily 10/10 right now, in my book. We will see how that rating changes at the end. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!!
