The Plot of Bungou Stray Dogs

The plot revolves around a young man named Atsushi Nakajima. Following his expulsion from his orphanage, Atsushi takes action 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 is used to torture 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.

Because there is a bounty 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 meets 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 supernatural book capable of changing reality 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 of having an airship named “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 man, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, appears and wishes to gain the book to eliminate all gifted 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 later discovered that Dostoyevsky contrived his imprisonment in order to lead his followers.

The book's pages are later discovered by Dostoyevsky's group, The Decay of Angels, which utilizes its powers to incriminate the Agency in a murder case. Dazai is imprisoned alongside Dostoyevsky, and the government dispatches military forces known as the Hunting Dogs to execute Agency members.
