Bungou Stray Dogs Season 5 Announced + Key Visual And Release Date Revealed
Bungou Stray Dogs Season 5 gets a release window!
Every anime fan has at least one anime that they consider underrated. But if you have ever gone deep into the cracks and crevices of the anime community to see what others consider “underrated,” you may have heard the chants of everyone screaming “Dazai, Dazai, Dazai!!”.
At some point, you must have wondered who is “Dazai.” Why is he pulling so many girls? To answer only one of those questions, Dazai is from the series called Bungou Stray Dogs.
Bungou Stray Dogs is an action-mystery anime based on the manga written by Kafka Asagiri and an anime adapted by Studio Bones.
The story begins with our protagonist, Atsushi Nakajima, who is on the verge of dying from starvation due to his recent eviction from his orphanage.
When he is about to bite it, a strange man appears drowning in a nearby river. Nakajima uses what little energy he has left to rescue this stranger, and it turns out he rescues Osamu Dazai, a suicide enthusiast and a supernatural detective.
Dazai’s partner, Doppo Kunikida, shows up shortly afterward, and they all go out for a bite to eat. During their meal, the detectives tell Nakajima they are searching for a tiger loose on the streets of Yokohama.
In a strange turn of events, the tiger is none other than Nakajima himself, even though he is unaware of his ability to transform into a tiger.
Dazai sees potential in Nakajima, and with his supernatural ability and nowhere else to go, Nakajima decides to join their detective agency with his new fellow gifted friends to solve crimes and take down any supernatural enemies.
The central plot focuses on the Agency fighting against Port Mafia, a criminal organization that wants Nakajima because of his ability to turn into a tiger.
The appeal of Bungou Stray Dogs comes from its cast, interactions, and lightheartedness. Also, the characters are not sexualized and are used for fan service, which can put off many viewers.
