Funimation will release Bungo Stray Dogs on home video on March 6. The series will ship to retailers in both standard and limited editions. The limited edition will include an art book and a set of author bookmarks.

The series, which is based on Kafka Asagiri (writer) and Sango Harukawa’s (artist) manga series of the same name, hit Japanese TV in the Spring 2016 broadcast season. Takuya Igarashi (Captain Earth, Ouran High School Host Club) helmed the project at Bones, while Nobuhiro Arai (Chaika – The Coffin Princess) provides character designs. Yoji Enokido (Melody of Oblivion, Ouran High School Host Club) was in charge of the show’s scripts.

Crunchyroll streamed Bungo Stray Dogs as a simulcast. They describe the show as:

Kicked out of his orphanage and on the verge of starving to death, Nakajima Atsushi meets some strange men. One of them, Dazai Osamu, is a suicidal man attempting to drown himself in broad daylight. The other, bespectacled Kunikida Doppo, nervously stands by flipping through a notepad. Both are members of the “Armed Detective Agency” said to solve incidents that even the military and police won’t touch. Atsushi ends up accompanying them on a mission to eliminate a man-eating tiger that’s been terrorizing the population…
