You don't have to remove the brackets. You just have to process the result correctly. It's not an object but an array with an object as its first element.

If you're only interested in the first module (e.g. because you know that there is exactly one), you can use `j[0]["kind"]`, `j[0]["name"]`, `j[0]["file"]`.

If you want to handle multiple modules, you can loop over the array:
foreach (size_t i, item; j)
    /* It's a bit silly that `foreach (item; j)` doesn't work. */
    /* ... use `item["kind"]` etc. here ... */
