Bungo Stray Dogs season 4 is the highly anticipated sequel to its previous three seasons. Here are all the latest updates from TGC.
Bungo Stray Dogs or ‘Bungō Sutorei Doggusu’ is a hugely popular anime series. It is based on a seinen manga series of the same name, written by Kafka Asagiri and illustrated by Sango Harukawa. The manga, serialized in the Young Ace magazine, began publishing in 2012. Owing to its popularity, it was soon adapted to be turned into an anime. It has currently three seasons released.
The first season aired on April 7, 2016, followed by a second season soon after in October of the same year. The third season premiered three years later on April 12, 2019, concluding on June 28 after a 12 episode run. Fans of the series have since then been eagerly awaiting news of a Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4 and while not yet confirmed is most certainly guaranteed to happen.
Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4 Release Date:
Although season 1 and 2 succeeded each other in a matter of a few months, season 3 only premiered after three years from the end of season 2. Given that there is no official announcement yet, we cannot say for sure when the new Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4 will arrive. However, there have been rumors of a possible 2021 release of the Bungo Stray Dogs season 4. But since the COVID-19 pandemic has delayed almost all releases of TV series and shows, the same can be expected for Bungo Stray Dogs.
The Story So Far
The anime series directed by Takuya Igarashi (who has previously been involved in the making of series like Ouran Highschool Host Club and Soul Eater among others), is a supernatural comedy revolving around protagonist Atsushi Nakajima (voiced by Yuto Uemura for the Japanese dub and Max Mittelman for the English dub) and his mysterious adventures with the “Armed Detective Agency.” The story has the unique concept of where each character of the Armed Detective Agency has the persona of a bygone famous personality re-imagined as a teenager or a young adult.
Episode one kicks off with the MC Atsushi in a state of hopeless misery after being banished from his orphanage where he was suspected to be the reason behind a series of mysterious happenings. From this miserable state, he is rescued by Osamu Dazai who introduces himself as a supernatural detective on the hunt for a mystical tiger. The same tiger was responsible for causing disturbances at the orphanage, Atsushi agrees to join Dazai on the trail for this tiger along with another Armed Detective Agency member Doppo Kunikida.
