Bungo Stray Dogs season 4 is being made at BONES, with Takuya Igarashi helming the project as the director. Yoji Enokido is the writer and series scripts supervisor. Credit for character design and chief animation direction both go to Nobuhiro Arai.
The opening theme song is titled “True Story” and performed by SCREEN mode. Meanwhile, the ending theme song is titled “Shirushi/°C” and performed by Luck Life.
Both the light novel and manga series are published in English by Yen Press. Yen Press gave this description for the first manga volume:
“Having been kicked out of the orphanage, a despairing young man by the name of Atsushi Nakajima rescues a strange man from a suicide attempt–Osamu Dazai. Turns out that Dazai is part of an armed-detective agency staffed by individuals whose supernatural powers take on a literary bent!”
The manga originally began publication in Young Ace magazine (from Kadokawa) just over ten years ago, in December 2012. It is continuing to be published.
