Synopsis of Bungou Stray Dogs

For weeks, the orphanage where Atsushi Nakajima resides has been plagued by a mystical tiger that only he seems to be aware of. Suspected of being behind the strange incidents, the 18-year-old is suddenly expelled from the orphanage and left hungry, homeless and wandering the city.

While starving to death on a riverbank, Atsushi prevents a rather eccentric man named Osamu Dazai from drowning. Whimsical, avid enthusiast, and supernatural detective, Dazai has been investigating the same tiger that has been terrorizing the young man. Together with Dazai's partner Doppo Kunikida, they solve the mystery, but their resolution leaves Atsushi in a difficult situation. As various events occur, Atsushi is forced to join his signature of supernatural investigators, taking on unusual cases that the police cannot handle, along with his numerous enigmatic collaborators.
