Bungo Stray Dogs Season 6: Release Date Confirmed!

Is there a possibility of the production of the sixth season of the anime series, Bungo Stray Dogs?

Bungo Stray Dogs is an anime series that belongs to the action-mystery genre. The storyline is based on the manga written by Kafka Asagiri and was skillfully adapted for anime by Studio Bones.

The narrative commences with the story’s central character, Atsushi Nakajima, who finds himself on the brink of death from malnourishment, after being evicted from his orphanage.

Nakajima utilized his remaining energy to provide assistance to an unknown individual in distress. The beneficiary of his efforts happened to be a person of interest named Osamu Dazai, who possesses an inclination towards self-harm and is a paranormal investigator.

In an unusual development, it has been discovered that the tiger in question is actually Nakajima himself, albeit without his knowledge of his capacity to metamorphose into a tiger.

Dazai recognizes Nakajima’s potential and having nowhere else to turn, Nakajima decides to join their detective agency alongside his equally gifted colleagues to investigate criminal cases and combat any paranormal adversaries that may arise.

The main premise of the story centers around the Agency’s efforts to combat the Port Mafia, a notorious criminal outfit that is after Nakajima due to his unique ability to transform into a tiger.

The appeal of Bungou Stray Dogs stems from the strong character dynamics, witty dialogues, and the series’ overall lighthearted tone. Additionally, the non-sexualized depiction of the characters may be appreciated by some viewers who may be put off by the use of fan service in anime.

Post the ending of season five, fans have been questioning if there will be a possibility of a sixth installment or not.

Similar to past installments, Bungou Stray Dogs Season 5 was also incredibly popular. It was the third highest rated i.e., 8.8/10, on MyAnimeList of Summer 2023.

Ther views and ratings might warrant a renewal however the availability of source material and studio is crucial.

Presently, series like Metallic Rouge, My Hero Academia 7, and Sk8 the Infinity 2 are listed as part of the production schedule.

The good news is the anime s’ official Twitter account has already announced that Bungo Stray Dogs is ‘Not Finished,’ which is a clear message from creators that they will return for Bungo Stray Dogs Season 6.

Considering the reviews of season five and the overall popularity of Bungo Stray Dogs, a renewal for Bungo Stray Dogs Season 6 should be a no brainer.

However, the concerning point is not the studio but the source material or lack thereof.

Bungo Stray Dogs Season 5 was adapted to Chapter 110, which is the most recent chapter published on 4th September 2023. Hence, the creators don’t have any source material to adapt for Bungo Stray Dogs Season 6.

So, if Studio Bones have used all the available source material, when can we expect Bungo Stray Dogs Season 6.

Studio Bones would need atleast another six volumes to produce a twelve-episode season.

The release of new manga content occurs at an interval of nine months per volume. Consequently, it would require an additional three years to publish six volumes.

It is anticipated that information regarding the Bungo Stray Dogs Season 6 trailer and release date will be disclosed around Mid-2026.
