For weeks, Atsushi Nakajima's orphanage has been plagued by a mystical tiger that only he seems to be aware of. Suspected to be behind the strange incidents, the 18-year-old is abruptly kicked out of the orphanage and left hungry, homeless, and wandering through the city. While starving on a riverbank, Atsushi saves a rather eccentric man named Osamu Dazai from drowning. Whimsical suicide enthusiast and supernatural detective, Dazai has been investigating the same tiger that has been terrorizing the boy. Together with Dazai's partner Doppo Kunikida, they solve the mystery, but its resolution leaves Atsushi in a tight spot. As various odd events take place, Atsushi is coerced into joining their firm of supernatural investigators, taking on unusual cases the police cannot handle, alongside his numerous enigmatic co-workers.

One of my favourite anime of all time! I love the soundtrack, the different arcs, and the curveballs that were thrown our way.


Could have been an interesting show but the uneven humor and characters really brought it down for me.


Brilliant, one of my favorite modern shows


Skinny boys with super powers fighting other skinny boys with super powers. It’s been done better than what’s done here.


One of my favourites. Characters are great, action is good, comedy is good, story is great.


Honestly surprising how much story they fit into 12 episodes.


Take great authors whos books and poems are great to read. Give them superpowers. Add a dash of comedy. Badass action scenes. Anime of 2016.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
