Did you finish all of Bungo Stray Dogs yet? Although they’re thrilling, season finales often leave you craving more, but with a painfully long time to go until the next new episode. While you wait for more Bungo Stray Dogs, take some time to get familiar with the real life Japanese authors that inspired many of the members of the Armed Detective Agency and Port Mafia. These famous writers are not very well known outside of Japan, but are a fundamental part of a Japanese education. Their fascinating lives were often marred by tragedy, but in writing about the darker and hidden sides of society, they provided fascinating insight into the changes in Japanese society in the 20th century.
