Atsushi Nakajima may be the protagonist of Bungo Stray Dogs, but you can’t deny that the anime runs solely due to Dazai.
Characters like Dazai are the reason that a series gets popular. I mean, c’mon, don’t we all love the sarcastic, overpowered, and in-serious-need-of-therapy character? (Levi, Gojo, Kakashi, and the list goes on).
Dazai’s past has been shrouded in mystery ever since the series started. Moreover, his past with Chuuya Nakahara is something that fans loved so much that it inspired a light novel.
Not everyone likes reading a novel, so Kadokawa has revealed that it will be adapted as a manga titled Bungo Stray Dogs: Dazai, Chūya, Jūgosai (Dazai and Chuuya at 15). It will be serialized after July.
The story narrates Dazai and Chuuya’s adventures and missions when they were fifteen and in the Port Mafia. Their time together was not very long, but they made a name for themselves as Twin Dark, the most feared duo of the underworld.
However, we all know these two will die before being nice to each other and showing basic decency. Throughout their partnership, and even after that, the two never got along and are constantly bickering with each other.
Despite that, the pair seem to trust each other and have formed a special relationship. They might not be the best of friends, but one thing is for sure, they never let each other die during missions.
The manga will explore Dazai and Chuuya’s past together, but this time with some badass art by Shiwasu Hoshikawa.
I’m so excited now because this means there is a chance for more anime content from the two!
