The Plot of Bungo Stray Dogs Anime Season 4
Previous season was a smash and fans expect the same from the upcoming season. The show is about a group of supernatural investigators who use their abilities to neutralize any situation regarding other supernaturals.
Atsushi Nakajima has a unique ability he’s unaware of. He comes across Osamu Dazai, a suicidal maniac near a river bank after getting out from his orphanage.
Having no place to go or anything to eat, he shares his story with Osamu Dazai. This mystery greatly intrigues him and he decides to help him. Later invites him to be a part of the Armed Detective Agency.
Season 3 of BSD ended on a good note. The Port Mafia and the Detective Agency combining forces to take down the terrorist group but this effort was temporary.
Bungou stray dogs season 4 will cover the Decay of the Angel saga which will continue from chapter 54 of the manga titled “the perfect murder, the perfect killer, part 1” where the Armed Detective Agency will go against the infamous terrorist group.
How Much Source Material Is Left for BSD 4?
As of right now, the bungou stray dogs series has 22 volumes and 99 chapters available. Not including the additional six chapters that will come in another volume.
The first season covered 16 chapters, the second season covered 21 chapters, and the third season again covered 16 chapters, so we can assume the fourth season will cover somewhere between 16 to 20 chapters.
There are more than enough chapters to create an entire season; however, the Decay of the Angel saga is quite extensive and a 12-episode season won’t be enough to cover it.
