What’s the Storyline of Bungou Stray Dogs Season 5?
The story begins with Atsushi Nakajima who slowly turns into a white tiger at night without any control over himself. He was then exiled from the orphanage and met Osamu Dazai, the leader of an organization called the Armed Detective Agency.
This organization deals with high-level operations, which local police departments are not capable of completing. Since the members of this organization were all supernatural beings, it became easier for them to solve every case assigned to them by the leaders.
The point is, as you might have predicted, there must be a rival organization, namely The Decay of Angels.
This clan targets Atsuki and all of his team members. With his strength overflowing, Atsushi, who lacks self-confidence and is too kind-hearted, has a hard time protecting his organization.
The leader of the Decay of Angels, Kamui alias Ochi Fukuchi is on a mission to destroy humanity and rule the world. With Atsushi and the black monsters of the Port Mafia, Ryunosuke Akutagawa being defeated by Kamui and his underlings, the Bungou Stray Dogs stand on a tense stage.
Now that Kamui plans to inject a deadly virus into the air that turns humans into vampires, the stakes for Dazai and Atsushi are even higher.
They must retrieve the One Order, an antidote weapon that can help them save the world. Against all odds in Bungou Stray Dogs season 5, Atsushi’s journey is even more difficult than usual.
