Bungou Stray Dogs season 4 is all set to release in a couple of months, as it’s been confirmed that the new season will release during the Winter 2023 season!
After more than three years, Bungou Stray Dogs is returning with a new season. The third season was released in 2019, and we have been waiting for a new season to drop ever since it concluded. The anime kicked off in 2016 and awarded the fans back-to-back two seasons. After giving a gap of more than two years, the anime returned with the third season, and now the fourth season is just around the corner.
So far, a total of 37 episodes have been released in the three seasons, and the last episode covered chapter 53 of the manga. The manga is still ongoing and has released more than 100 chapters. There is enough source material to be adapted for the forthcoming season. In the last season, the “Cannibalism Arc” was adapted completely, and the next arc will be the “Cannibalism Aftermath Arc.”
If you are not a manga reader, you might be excited to watch your favorite characters back in action. So it’s only natural that you are looking forward to the upcoming season of Bungou Stray Dogs. Let’s find out exactly when the season will start airing!
What is Bungou Stray Dogs Season 4 Release Date?
On August 6, the officials released a trailer along with key art visuals of the 4th season. This was more like a dream come true for everyone because the wait had finally paid off. The announcement was made during the Crunchyroll Expo. And it has been confirmed that the 4th season of the anime will start airing in January 2023.
Although we don’t know the exact release date for the upcoming season, January is approaching with high expectations. It’s highly likely that the anime will start airing in the first or second week of the month.
Like the previous seasons, Crunchyroll would take charge of streaming the anime all over the world. On the other hand, BONES Studio will also be producing the anime this time too. The trailer has made the fans go crazy over it; BONES studio has done a great job of creating chills and thrills in the viewers. The animation, the music, and everything else are simply on the spot.
Not many details have been shared apart from the cast and staff details; we probably have to wait a little more to get the news. There are no other teaser trailers and key art visuals revealed; neither has the exact release date of the anime been confirmed.
We don’t even know how many episodes there will be in this season. Still, there are many predictions regarding that. Though there is enough material to cover the next 24 episodes, it’s up to the makers completely. The previous three seasons had 12 episodes per season, so it’s more than likely that the 4th season will have the same number of episodes.
What Is Bungou Stray Dogs Anime All About?
Bungou Stray Dogs is all about action, mystery, thrill, and supernatural stuff. There is not even a single chance it leaves to amuse the fans with its mind-boggling story. The story begins with Atsushi, an orphan starving as if he hadn’t eaten for a while. The orphanage had kicked him out as he was suspected of being a mystical tiger. While wandering, he saw a drowning man who was later revealed to be Osamu Dazai, one of the members of the Armed Detective Agency.
Dazai took him to the restaurant as a token of thanks and decided to help Atsushi as he was afraid of the weretiger following him. Later, it was revealed that the tiger Atsushi was afraid of was none other than Atsushi himself. That’s how he joined Dazai and became a member of the agency.
A series of incidents began with the team of heroes solving mysteries and fighting off the bad guys. In the previous season, we saw the heroes saving the city from the evils, and things would turn a little dark in the coming season. Many new characters were introduced, with Fyodor entering the scenes. We will see him in the coming season as well.
Judging from the trailer, we can see the enemy conspiring against the agency of heroes. The foes are cunning enough to trap the heroes! The coming season will bring a lot of drama and power-oriented action. So, expect the unexpected for this one because it will be thrilling and entertaining simultaneously.
By keeping the trailer in view, the anime might be covering the “Hunter Dogs Arc,” which comes after the “Cannibalism Aftermath Arc.” Let’s see if the creators will follow the manga throughout or not!
We only have to wait for one more month before the next anime season starts airing. We will see all our favorite characters back on screen and in action pretty soon!
The makers will probably reveal some new key art visuals along with the other promotional videos as the release date nears. But till then, the only thing we can do is wait and count down the days till the first episode is released. I will update the article immediately as soon as there’s information about the anime’s exact release date. Till then, let’s look forward to any news regarding the upcoming Bungou Stray Dogs season 4!
