Bungo Stray Dogs Season 5 Plot: What Will This New Season Be About?
It began with Atsushi Nakajima slowly transforming into a white tiger at night with no control over himself. He was then exiled from the orphanage and met Osamu Dazai, the leader of an organization entitled Armed Detective Agency. This organization deals with high-level operations, ones that the local police department is incapable of solving. Since the members of this organization are all supernatural creatures, it becomes easier for them to solve any and every case assigned to them by the leaders. The crux, as you probably already predicted, is a rival organization, The Decay of Angels.
This clan targets Atsuki and all his team members. With its abundant powers, Atsushi, the under-confident overly kind-hearted, has a hard time protecting his organization. The leader of Decay of Angels, Kamui aka Ochi Fukuchi is on a mission to destroy humanity and exert dominance over the world. With Atsushi and the black beast of the Port Mafia, Ryunosuke Akutagawa being defeated by Kamui and his subordinates, Bungo Stray Dogs stands at a crucial stage.
Now that Kamui is planning to inject a deadly virus into the air that turns people into vampires, the stakes for Dazai and Atsushi are running high. They have to retrieve One Order, an antidote-style weapon that could help them save the world. Going against all odds in Bungo Stray Dogs Season 5, Atsushi’s journey has become even spicier than usual.
