The 1st cour of Bungo Stray Dogs may have concluded, but the battle with the Guild has just begun, and the official website has published a key visual for the 2nd cour that focuses on this new group of literary antagonists.
Additionally, the official web site also updated the character profiles for the series with a trio of villainous authors:
Ougai Mori (voiced by Mitsuru Miyamoto), the leader of the Port Mafia. His gift is called “Vita Sexualis”. Although Mori projects the image of a boring, middle-aged man, he is actually a merciless killer that always looks for the ideal outcome in any situation, and he never loses his cool. Mori is always found in the company of Elise, a mysterious and beautiful young girl.
Francis F (voiced by Takahiro Sakurai), the leader of the Guild, a clandestine group of gifted individuals based in North America. His ability is called “The Great Gatsby”. Francis is the one who placed the bounty on Atsushi’s head. An extravagant millionaire who is used to getting what he wants, Francis seeks to obtain the Armed Detective Agency’s permit for the Guild.
Lucy M (voiced by Kana Hanazawa), a member of the Guild. Lucy is a dreamy girl with a gift called “Anne of Abyssal Red” which allows her to trap people in a pocket dimension. Although she also grew up in an orphanage, Lucy is fiercely envious of Atsushi, who she believes has led a charmed life.
Bungo Stray Dogs is based on the manga and light novels written by Kafka Asagiri and illustrated by Sango Harukawa that re-imagine famous authors and super-powered heroes and villains. The TV series is directed by Takuya Igarashi and features animation by BONES. Bungo Stray Dogs will continue in October of 2016.
