Action thriller animes infused with the savvy detective trope have always held a concrete position on the watch list of many. Be it Death Note or Bungo Stray Dogs, these animes when dealing with an already popular trope manage to leave a lasting impact on the anime connoisseurs. Bungo Stray Dogs is renowned for portraying some intense action sequences, all the while maintaining a fragility to the characters that render viewers dazed. While the anime has been experimenting with long runtime and dynamic characters, it hasn’t been inconsiderate towards its compelling plot.
It is due to these elements that Bungo Stray Dogs Season 6 release date has become highly anticipated. Millions of fans have their eyes set on the renewal status of this eponymous season. So, is it approved? Let us find out!
Bungo Stray Dogs Season 6 Release Date
Tajuya Igarashi, the man behind Soul Eater, picked up Kafka Asagiri’s titular manga and developed a cinematic version of it. Asagiri’s seinen manga was published in 2012 and is currently being accumulated by Yen Press and Kadakowa Comics A Young Ace. It is still ongoing with 23 volumes to its name so far with more being added as we discuss. Multiple light novels have been published by Asagiri so far as well. After Bungo Stray Dogs debuted on Crunchyroll in April 2016 in two halves each of twelve episodes, the franchise has been witnessing vigorous growth.
The second half was perceived as Season 2 by both fans and creators. A new season is being released with a gap of two years ever since and currently, the anime is on its fifth season. After Season 5 was released on July 12, 2023, a new episode is being premiered weekly. Since it is still ongoing, the topic of a new season is left untouched.
With the available source material and the dedication portrayed by Igarashi and his team, it wouldn’t be a surprise if a follow-up season is launched soon. If the makers approve it soon, Bungo Stray Dogs Season 6 is expected to premiere in the last quarter of 2024 or mid-2025.
Bungo Stray Dogs Plot
When Atsushi Nakajima, an orphan lauded with supernatural powers, comes across Osamu Dazai, his life is flipped over. Nakajima considers him transforming into a ferocious white tiger at night is a weakness as does everyone in the orphanage. However, upon meeting Dazai, Atsushi realizes that his weakness is his greatest asset as it paves the way for him to join the Armed Detective Agency. Similar to real-world international organizations, this agency helps eradicate nefarious criminals. Dazai is the head of the organization and aims to create a serene world that is void of crime.
While the Armed Detective Agency has amiable motives, the Decay of Angels, as its name suggests, bears harsh intentions. The leader of this barbaric organization, a devil clad in human skin, Kamui aka Ochi Fukuchi has now upped his ante. He has injected a life-threatening virus into the air to transform humans into vampires. To protect the world against this mafia clan and retrieve the antidote, One Order, Atsushi has to put aside his doubts and gear for a vicious battle.
Bungo Stray Dogs Season 6 Storyline
With Atsushi on a mission to safeguard the world against mafia members and other threatening forces, Season 5 is currently delivering high-octane drama and action.
