dog ties

Alla fine cosa rimane? Solo il banale orrore di due persone che si trovano per caso, si piacciono, si amano… Magari pensano persino che l'amore sia qualcosa di eterno… finché una delle due abbandona l'altra… e scompare… così come scompaiono mille e mille estranei che nella vita incontriamo per un attimo e non vedremo mai più.
—  Dylan Dog, Gente che scompare.

Bungou Stray Dogs - Ch. 42 Omake

Along with chapter 42, Young Ace published a short report on the anime recordings of Bungou Stray Dogs focusing on the Port Mafia cast, with art by Kanaineko-sensei, the author of BSD Wan. This is part 2 of 4 in the series of Sea Urchin’s (that little black star) observations - part 1 will be posted later (we recently realized we do have the raws after all, but this one was already done XD).

Brought to you by Liz (raw provider & translator) and Cris (cleaning, redrawing & typesetting). 

Pessimistic POV on the Signs
  • Aries: Jock™, thinks they're better than you, probably ate dog food once, a dick.
  • Taurus: 🤑 personified. Will do anything for cash or free things. Lowkey spontaneous and uses their stoic and proper facade to get what they want.
  • Gemini: Will manipulate you and when someone asks they'll play victim. Liars.
  • Cancer: Cries a lot. Plays victim, hypocrite.
  • Leo: Center of Attention. Brat. Needs to let go of things. Anger Issues. Toxic in relationships, depending.
  • Virgo: Two faced, manipulative. Sexy Secretary™. Ex cheated on them so they cheat on their partners. Uses their past to justify their actions, but never fixes the behavior. Believes their perfect (intelligence/personality wise).
  • Libra: Clingy™. Uses your heart against you. Would probably push you infront of a bus if it meant they could pet someones dog. Will cut ties for minuscule things, as long as you aren't dating.
  • Scorpio: Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll. Uses sex to get what they want. Became "that creative" bc of the time they took a psychedelic.
  • Sagittarius: Knows they shouldnt say the shit they do, uses "Blunt" as an excuse to bully people. Disappears without reasons and when you ask they shrug. Claims to be honest, but isn't if the situation is relatively awkward. Talks their way outta fucking anything. Can manipulate you without lying.
  • Capricorn: Fucked your family member. Has no concept of loyalty. Wants to have power over others. Psychopath™.
  • Aquarius: Reminds everyone how giving they are so they get things. Will smoke all of your weed. Will manipulate you. Creates false ego's in order to seem more "real". Basically a surveillance robot sent by aliens.
  • Pisces: Hipster™. Plays the victim, wants to be treated like a princess. Has no concept of what its like to be hated. Talks shit. Pathological Liars, claims to be doing it to "protect" people, despite lying about unnecessary things.
  • *use moon or rising too

It has been a long process, but it feels really good to be at a point with Chalo where we can just dabble — just flowing between playing and bouncy, happy heeling. Just a sloppy novice trainer with a primitive-type dog, just enjoying.


Khovrinsky hospital (also known as Umbrella) is an unfinished hospital in Moscow that was abandoned in 1985 and became the last refuge for many people. An infamous graffiti inside the hospital reads, “The hospital is the land of miracles, you are entering it and disappear there.“ At the end of 80’s an old lady that was living near the hospital lost her dog. She entered the hospital to look for it and found it dead. The legs of the dog were tied up and it was clear that the dog was brutally murdered, as were many other animals that the old lady found there. She would come back to the building, hoping that she will find the killer. However, she broke both her legs there and couldn’t get any help. Her body was found only weeks later. Just as her dog, she died a very horrible and painful death. In 1990, a girl was murdered in the hospital. In 2005, a 16-year-old teenager that went by nickname Edge committed suicide there. Those cases were just one of the many deaths the hospital has witnessed. The exact number of bodies found inside of the Khovrinsky hospital was never released, but it’s clear that the count goes on dozens.
