Bungou Stray Dogs Plot
In Bungou Stray Dogs, the story revolves around a young man called Atsushi Nakajima. Following his expulsion from his orphanage, Atsushi intervenes in the suicide of a detective called Osamu Dazai, who believes he is drowning in the river.
During his contacts with Dazai, Atsushi discovers he possesses a mystical talent capable of converting him into a berserker white tiger in the moonlight, which used to torment and expel him from the orphanage. Dazai recruits him into the Agency, where he meets many other ability users as they work on various cases and events in the city of Yokohama, which is overflowing with people with Supernatural Abilities. And because there is a reward on Atsushi’s head on the black market, he becomes the target of Port Mafia member Rynosuke Akutagawa.
During his battles with the mafia, Atsushi encounters Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald, the leader of the Fellowship of the Guild who put a price on his head. Fitzgerald explains that there is a mystical book capable of changing reality that is related to Atsushi’s tiger, thereby creating a black market bonanza. Fitzgerald disregards the Guild’s potential damage to Yokohama in exchange for the book, instead having an airship dubbed “Moby Dick” destroy the city. However, when Atsushi and Akutagawa join forces, he is nearly slain, while former mafia member Kyoka Izumi stops Moby Dick.
Another guy, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, emerges and wishes to gain the book to eliminate all brilliant individuals. He prepares a fatal clash between the investigators and the mafia, but Natsume Soseki, the genuine boss of this group, calls it off. While Atsushi and Akutagawa are pursuing the virus’s creator, Dazai can apprehend Dostoyevsky with the assistance of Fitzgerald. However, it is eventually discovered that Dostoyevsky contrived his incarceration to lead his followers. The book’s pages are subsequently discovered by Dostoyevsky’s organization The Decay of Angels, which utilizes its abilities to incriminate the Agency in a murder case.
