With the successful run of spin-off instalment, Bungo Stray Dogs: Dead Apple, from January to March this year, the anime fan community is wondering about the future of season 4 of the original series. The anime adaptation of Bungo Stray Dogs first aired in 2016. A total of 36 episodes with a special OVA have been telecasted so far.
The original series takes its inspiration from the manga and the light novel series of the same name. However, most of the anime adaptation is based on the storylines of the manga editions. In 2015, Bones picked it up for the anime adaptation and aired it next year with immense positive critical reception. With Takuya Igarashi at the helm, the animation studio has delivered a total of three spectacular seasons.
Can we expect the fourth season to appear in the future? Check out all the details right here!
Bungo Stray Dogs: Plot Synopsis
The plot revolves around a group of young detectives who also possess the knowledge of supernatural powers. Our protagonist’s name is Atsushi. The show starts with little Atsushi getting kicked out of an orphanage. People living with or around him figured out that he was responsible for all the bizarre supernatural things that occurred there.
Atsushi begins to live his life on his own. With no money and food with him, he meets Osamu Dazai. Sometime later, he discovers that Dazai is a detective who utilizes supernatural tactics to solve his cases. The latter tries to solve the case of a mysterious tiger. It is the same tiger that haunted Atsushi’s orphanage. He agrees to help the supernatural detective.
Along with Doppo Kunikida, the group starts to unravel the mystery. The more they try to solve the case, the more they clash with The Guild, an American Supernatural Organization.
