Hello! I am Kitahata, the editor-in-chief at MANGA.TOKYO. I live in Japan and turn press releases from Japanese companies into articles that are easy for those outside of Japan to understand. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!
A few months ago in February it was announced that Bungo Stray Dogs will get a movie. The title of the movie has now been announced to be Bungo Stray Dogs Dead Apple. It will be a completely new story. The catchphrase of the movie is ‘A wound that doesn’t disappear, that’s a different ability.’ The movie will be released in Spring 2018.
You can have a first impression through the introduction video below.
In Japanese cinemas Spring 2018
An imaginary city named Yokohama. Atsushi Nakajima, a young man that was driven out of the orphanage and wanders the streets homeless, meets Dazai Osamu, who has suicidal tendencies. For some reason Atsushi is helping kill a tiger that eats humans, which makes his own ability awake. Dazai then urges Atsushi to join their Armed Detective Agency, who solve some cases the military or police can’t solve. But some people are after Atsushi, as there is a big prize money on his head. They are called Port Mafia, a underground organization located at the harbor. One of the members, Ryunosuke Akutagawa is keeping a close eye on Atsushi, filled with hatred. And there is also Nakahara Chuya, former partner of Daizai known as ‘Soukoku’, who keeps irritating him. Both organizations are burning with fire in their conflict.
