Having seen the sneak peak for this new series, it has this Space Dandy (or Gintama) vibe running all over, but with the expectation of having less fanservice. If you’re into sci-fi action comedy, you may want to check this one out.
Also: Sugibro and Daisuke Sakaguchi (aka Shinpachi) are here.

Premiere: 12 April 2019, every Fridays 11:00pm with replays every Saturday 8:00pm (Show page)
Bungo Stray Dogs 3 is the long-awaited sequel of the popular hit series adapted from the popular Japanese manga of the same name written by Kafka Asagiri and illustrated by Sango Harukawa. The cast will also reprise their roles after three years since the last season.

The only things I know about this series is that Mamoru Miyano is here, and the characters are named after famed novelists. I am sure the fans can tell the highlights of the story better than mine, so I’ll leave it to all the fans to come up here and leave their reactions for good measure.
In the Philippines, watch Aniplus on SKYcable SD Channel 139 in Metro Manila, Camanava/Rizal, Cavite, Laguna, Bulacan (San Jose Del Monte) via SKY Select for Php100 a month as well as Cablelink Channel 103 (Basic PLUS). If you have the EasyTV digibox from the guys at Solar, switch to Channel 10.
