What to expect from the plot of Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4?
An anime series is an adaptation of a comic series serialized every month in Young Ace. Each season consists of 17-18 chapters of the series. The story is about a boy named Atsushi Nakajima who saves the life of Osamu Dazai.
Atsushi has the supernatural power to transform into a white tiger in the moonlight. Nakajima finds a place in a detective agency named Armed Detective Agency.
In the Agency, he uses his magical powers to solve criminal cases beyond the normal non-magical world. After recruiting Atsushi, Dazai becomes the idiot of the Port Mafia.
Atsushi’s escape, in the end, leaves the audience in suspense. Bangu Stray Dogs Season 4 will continue the decay of the Angel arc which is not yet finished.
Don’t be surprised to see a new criminal agency, Decay of Angels, with Dostoevsky and Nikolai Gogol, Bram Stoker, Oichi Fukuchi, and Sigma as members of their group. Season 3 featured the storyline up to Chapter 53 of the original manga series, so there’s more to come.
