Bungo Stray Dogs

Bungo Stray Dogs is all about re-interpretations of famous Japanese authors. So that means you'll be lucky to have heard of any of them. Taking these writers' stories and turning them into superpowers (like an Atsushi Nakajima who turns into a tiger or a Kenji Miyazawa who is Not Defeated By Rain when he's hungry) the show definitely seems to try too hard to be clever. But it can't be too bad since there's this guy with ridiculous sunglasses and scarf holding a lemon. Maybe I need to brush up on my Japanese authors, since I don't remember coming across any lemon-wielding wordsmiths.
