Bungō Stray Dogs Story

The “battle action” story Bungō Stray Dogs centers around a league of literary figures with supernatural powers. For example, in real life, Ryūnosuke Akutagawa (top left in key art below) wrote acclaimed stories that inspired Akira Kurosawa’s Rashōmon film and the Aoi Bungaku Seriesanime’s Jigoku Hen (Hell Screen) arc. In Bungō Stray Dogs, he has the power to transform and manipulate his cloak into a monster-like entity. Together, these writers solve mysteries as part of the “Armed Detective Agency.”

Bungō Stray Dogs series mainly features Japanese authors as seen from above, furthermore it also featured contemporary Japanese authors and even overseas authors like Dan Brown, Agatha Christie, and Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
