Bungo Stray Dog Season 5 Release Window, Trailer, & Latest News

Only months after the end of the last season, season 5 of Bungo Stray Dogs, a massively popular supernatural mystery anime, is set to release this July. Fans of the series have been given tons of content this year, perhaps in an apology after the anime adaptation of the main series went on an almost four-year hiatus. While fans were treated to a spin-off series during that time and the manga and light novel were ongoing, many viewers were anxiously waiting for the anime to pick back up. According to the trailers released so far, fans can expect huge things from season 5 of Bungo Stray Dogs.

When season 5 of Bungo Stray Dogs was first announced back in March, fans were given a vague release time of July 2023. While just this was enough to get fans excited, considering the 4th season was only just now drawing to a close, the exact date had yet to be revealed. However, at the beginning of the month, the official release date of July 12, 2023, was announced alongside the newest trailer for the series. While it’s hard to find any official word on the amount of episodes this season will have, after Crunchyroll featured the series at Anime Expo 2023 there has been a rumor swirling around online that the season will contain 10 episodes. Despite the rumor, the episode count currently remains unconfirmed.

Bungo Stray Dogs Season 5 Story Details

Season 5 will be picking back up exactly where season 4 left off, much to fans’ relief. No official plot has been released yet, but based on trailers, the manga, and the previous season, the story can be mostly deciphered. This season will follow the aftermath of the detective’s failure to prove their innocence to the terrifying Hunting Dogs. While nothing is confirmed, the season will likely follow the characters as they try to reconvene after being separated in season 4. While the scenes of the characters together might be a fake-out, as all the detectives still have objectives to finish on their own, fans might see the Armed Detective Agency joining arms once again. The trailers for the season have teased a fight to the death between Dazai and Fyodor, while the last member of Decay of the Angel will finally make his long-awaited entrance to the anime adaptation. Season 5 is being set up to be the most explosive season Bungo Stray Dogs has seen yet as the arc draws to a close and each character is pushed to their limits.

The second trailer for the season was released on the first of June and gives fans more of a detailed look into what they can expect from season 5, as well as confirming the release date. This trailer is just as intense as the first one released back in March. However, while the first trailer was more vague and focused on the explosive visuals and action that the season will have to offer, the second trailer gives us a closer look at the storyline for season 5 as the series picks back up where it left off. Both trailers have set high stakes for the main characters as the framed detectives get their backs pushed against a wall in a race to clear their names and survive. Even though the trailers are not even two minutes long, the confirmation that the organization is trying to end the world in six days is enough to have fans at the edges of their seats after the cliffhanger they were left on during the season 4 finale.
