Since 2012, Bungou Stray Dogs has been serialised in Kadokawa Shoten’s seinen manga magazine Young Ace, written by Kafka Asagiri and portrayed by Sango Harukawa. This Japanese Manga series, written and illustrated by Kafta Asagiri and Sango Harukawa, had Chapter 53 converted into Season 3 of the programme. A solid tale still holds up and can be turned into a popular fourth-part display.
The “Armed Detective Agency” members are followed throughout their daily lives in this series. The show centres on weretiger Atsushi Nakajima, who teams up with others endowed with supernatural abilities to complete various jobs including operating a business, solving mysteries, and carrying out mafia missions.
It centres around the orphaned youngster Atsushi Nakajima and his various mysterious abilities. His transformation into a fearsome tiger after being exposed to moonlight has enthralled the audience and added to the show’s intrigue. As much as we all enjoy watching this show, we must admit that the uncertainty of whether or not season 4 will be published retards us every time.
Bungou Stray Dogs has had three seasons released on HBO Max to date. Because the program is based on the Young Ace Magazine, a serialised and released monthly picture strip, there is still a lot of material to be covered in the show.
Atsushi Nakajima, a young adult, is the protagonist of the novel. Atsushi unintentionally prevents a detective called Osamu Dazai from committing suicide by drowning in a river. During his contacts with Dazai, Atsushi discovers he possesses a mystical power that allows him to convert into a berserker white tiger in the moonlight. Dazai recruits him into the Agency, where he meets many other ability users as they work on various cases and events in Yokohama, a city brimming with people who have superhuman powers.Atsushi becomes a target for the Port Mafia, particularly Dazai’s old student, Ryunosuke Akutagawa.
During Atsushi’s battles with the mafia, he meets Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald, the leader of the Fellowship of the Guild, who puts a price on his head. Fitzgerald discloses that Atsushi’s tiger is related to a mystical book capable of altering reality, resulting in a black market bounty. In repayment for the book, Fitzgerald disregards any minor damage the Guild may cause to Yokohama by having an airship named “Moby Dick” destroy the city. When Atsushi and Akutagawa join forces, he is nearly slain, while former mafia member Kyoka Izumi stops Moby Dick.
Another figure, Fyodor Dostoevsky, appears and expresses his desire to gain the book to eradicate all gifted individuals. Throughout the several conflicts, it is revealed that there is someone above Dostoevsky who must be stopped. Atsushi learns that the commander of Decay of Angels is a guy called Kamui during a confrontation with one of Fyodor’s allies, Sigma. The Agency is then gathered by Ranpo Edogawa, who manages to prove their innocence to the authorities. Season 3 depicted the scenario up to chapter 53 of the original manga series, so there is still a lot coming. Season 4 of Bungou Stray Dogs will continue the unfinished decay of the Angel arc.
