He meets a brilliant detective named Dazai, and together with their colleague Kunikida, they investigate the tiger. Atsushi ends up working for a group called the Armed Detective Agency. Fans love the show’s suspenseful storytelling.

Now, people are wondering if there will be a sixth season of the show. Fans are excited to see their favorite characters return with new adventures.

Bungo Stray Dogs Season 6 Release Update: Not the End Yet!

The fifth season of ‘Bungo Stray Dogs aired from July 12, 2023, to September 20, 2023, with eleven episodes, each around twenty-three minutes long. The series, featuring talented voice actors like Mamoru Miyano, Yuuto Uemura, Kishou Taniyama, Hiroshi Kamiya, and Kenso Ono, was directed by Igarashi Takuya.

Now, for fans eager for a sixth season, there’s both good and somewhat bittersweet news. Just after the season 5 finale, an announcement on X.com confirmed that the anime hasn’t reached its conclusion yet.

The creators expressed their gratitude to the fans for supporting the series over the past seven years. While this news reassures fans that the show isn’t ending shortly, it’s worth noting that a return might not be pending.

Why ‘Bungo Stray Dogs’ Season 6 Might Take a While

The manga series by Kafka Asagiri, which serves as the inspiration for the ‘Bungo Stray Dogs’ anime, currently has twenty-four volumes. The most recent chapter, Chapter 110 was released on September 4, 2023.

Season 5 of the anime covered all the manga chapters released up to that point. This means that there’s no more original content for the creators to adapt into the next season.

Unfortunately, fans will have to wait quite a bit for Season 6. The first five seasons covered material from 23 manga volumes, so for Season 6 to happen there needs to be at least four more volumes published.

Based on past publication patterns, this could take around 1.5 to 2 years. After that, production for the new season will begin. So, fans should expect ‘Bungo Stray Dogs’ Season 6 to premiere sometime in 2026 or later. It’s going to be a patient wait for the fans.
