Meanwhile, the third season of BSD anime, took three entire years to premiere. The Season 3 came out in April 12, 2019 after a long break. As of now, there has been no confirmed news of a fourth season.

But, as this television series gathered so much popularity over its three seasons, It is very safe to expect a fourth one.

Our sources tell us that season 4 may come out in 2021 January if there are no halts in its production. Sadly the producers have not released any official statement. If they decide to take a bit more time due to ongoing COVID-19 crisis, this release date can be extended up to 2022.

Bungou Stray Dogs Anime Characters:

Stray Dogs anime is basically a dark fantasy anime where our main heroes are supernatural detectives. Kafka Asagiri used real life literary heroes and inculcated them as anime characters.

As the show starts, we see an orphanage where Atsushi Nakajima lives. Weird things are happening in the area and he is believed to be the cause so he is driven out of his home. With no food and no house, he falls into a hopeless darkness and decides to commit suicide. Close to his last breath, he is saved by an eccentric man named Osamu Dazai

He finds that Dazai is a detective with supernatural abilities and he is trying to solve a case.

There is a mystical Tiger, attacking people and the same tiger has caused those events at the orphanage. Atsushi decides to help Osamu in the case. They are joined by another detective named Doppo Kunikida.

The trio comes across secret agencies, life-threatening ventures and American Villians called “The Guild” as they try to delve deeper into the mystery.

Main Characters of the Television Show:

  • Atsushi Nakajima: Named after a popular Japanese author of the 20th Century, he is the protagonist of Bsd Anime who finds himself under Dazai’s care after some unnatural events. He is inspired by the traits mentioned in a book written by the author himself. He was in an orphanage, but supernatural things started happening there. The people grew afraid of him and forced him to go away. He was lost, dying and maddened when Osamu Dazai found him. Together they decided to clear his name by investigating the case. Nakajima has a powerful ability, he can turn himself into a white tiger in moonlight. The tiger has superhuman capabilities and high regenerative powers. One Slash is enough to kill a grown man with ease. In the series, he learns to control his ability to the extent where he can turn any limb into a Tiger limb. This helps him jump higher and increase the team support that he brings to the stray dogs. With a pure and innocent personality, he fights fiercely for his friends and his nakama (Companions). Voiced by “Max Mittelman” and “Yuto Uemura”.
Atsushi Nakajima
  • Osamu Dazai: Another famous name! Osamu Dazai is based on the Japanese literary hero of the 20th Century.  Being a suicidal maniac, he is naturally charming, intriguing, dark and often times downright spectacular. Osamu works for the Armed Detective Agency and helps Atsushi by keeping him close after he is kicked out. Being a nihilistic character,  Osamu believes in the eternal futility of life. His biggest dream is to die. He also dreams of doing this suicide with a beautiful woman. Enigmatic, furious, cunning and intuitive, Osamu Dazai has the ability to negate any supernatural ability he touches with his hand. He is a born leader, but has a heart full of malice. He dislikes authority, even though sometimes he has to bear it. Voiced by “Kaiji Tang” and “Mamoru Miyano”. He plays good Basketball too.
Osamu Dazai
  • Doppo Kunikida: Doppo Kunikida was a Japanese Novelist and romantic poet. The BSD anime character Doppo Kunikida takes inspiration from his namesake. He is the third member of the agency. Kunikida is always writing something and always making plans. He, along with Osamu is the top planner of the trio. He never gets bored of reading and has an interesting supernatural ability of creating things by writing them in his notebook. His ability has some limitations, but otherwise he is fairly skilled even in combat. Pious, industrious and dedicated to his goal, he makes very brief but effective plans which Dazai executes with unprecedented skill. Voiced by “Patrick Seitz” and “Yoshimasa Hosoya”
Doppo Kunikida
  • Ryūnosuke Akutagawa: His character is based on a Japanese author of the same name who existed in the Taisho period of Japan. He is regarded as the father of Japanese Short Story and had a prize named after him. Our anime character here is a former student of Osamu Dazai, and is called the Port Mafia’s “Dog”. He is impeccable in both attack and defense. Akutagawa believes in a black and white society. He believes that the weak should just die, only the strong should survive. He doesn’t care for pain, torture, morality or discrimination. Instead, he takes a steadfast and simple approach to matters. Feared by both allies and enemies, he has a powerful ability called Rashomon. He can use his black coat to summon a black shadow beast and use it for both attack and defense. Akutagawa kills his targets ruthlessly and murders without a single shred of either fear or regret. I would say that after Dazai he is the most interesting character of bungo stray dogs television show.His character gives a certain Demiurge like appeal from Overlord.
Ryunosuke_Akutagawa
  • Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald: Fitzgerald’s character is based upon the American Author F. Scott Fritzgerald, famous for his book “The Great Gatsby”. He is the leader of The Guild, an American agency who places a bounty on Dazai’s head. His power is “The Great Fitzgerald”, which grants him an increase in strength proportional to the amount of money he spends. Even throwing coins off a balcony is sufficient to initiate his power. He is shown to be a relatively stoic character, but his emotional backstory is revealed later on.
