Bungo Stray Dogs Dead Apple
It has been 6 years since an 88-day dispute that brought with it a storm of blood. There have been cases across the world of a mysterious mist appearing and ability-users using their own powers to take their own lives. So far, the number of victims has surpassed 500. The government has called this the ‘Ability-User Serial Suicide Incident’. The Armed Detective Agency receives a request to capture a mysterious man named Tatsuhiko Shibusawa, who is suspected to be involved.
However, Osamu Dazai goes missing. Then, there is also the demon Fyodor skulking in the shadows. An unprecedented new enemy attacks ability-users one after another. As the city is about to get swallowed up in a nightmare, Atsushi and Kyoka rush to Shibusawa’s fortress.
However, Akutagawa appears and tells them a truth that they couldn’t have even imagined.
