featured image

The Armed Detective Agency is chased down by the Hunting Dogs in episode 7 of Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4, titled “Dogs Hunt Dogs”. The altering effects of the special book are so powerful so as to be able to manipulate memories, and everyone is in a bind as the police declare them terrorists.

Kunikida’s group escapes by using Yosano’s healing power, but as they try to leave by car, they are out-skilled by Jouno’s and Tetchou’s abilities.

As Tetchou is about to strike down Kunikida, he is disrupted by Chuuya’s gravity manipulation, who has arrived just in time to save them, on Mori’ orders.

Here are the latest updates.

Episode 8 Speculation

Episode 8 is titled “You, A Child of Sin. I, A Child of Sin”. Things aren’t looking good for the Detective Agency, but it seems that at least the Port Mafia has their backs. Mori was probably the one Fukuzawa was talking on the phone with, since he may have foreseen the situation.

The Port Mafia has worked together with the Detective Agency in the past, and it seems that they are their only allies at this moment.            

The next episode will also showcase Atsushi, Kyoka, and Dazai’s whereabouts. Since Jouno seems fine, Dazai might have really been arrested, but there is a possibility that he got out of the situation using his quick wit.

Ranpo notices a security camera in the abandoned room, which wasn’t there before and a bloody knife in his hand. He realizes that the Decay Angels plan to frame him as Chief Taneda’s murderer by using the special book’s powers. Military vehicles surround the building to capture him.

Kunikida’s group meets with Kenji’s, and they hide in a room while talking to Ranpo. Ranpo tells him that the reality-altering book is probably made by a higher power, not a gifted, since it can even overwrite their memories.

If they give themselves up to the military, they will be sentenced to death as their own memories have them painted as suspects. They suddenly lose connection with him after hearing gunshots. Ranpo throws himself out a window to escape.

The military throws a knockout gas bomb in their room. As they arrive, they see everyone but Yosano dead. Yosano wakes up and uses Thou Shalt Not Die to revive everyone. Kunikida reveals that he had reproduced their encryption devices to hear their plans all along.

The Hunting Dogs, an elite military team of 5 gifted individuals, are introduced, including the leader Fukuchi Ouchi, Jouno Saigiku, Suehiro Tetchou, and Okura Teruko. Fukuchi declares that they will shred apart the Armed Detective Agency.

Meanwhile, Fukuzawa is at the headquarters and gets off the phone after talking with someone. The military raids the headquarters and announces his arrest.

Kunikida and others try to come up with their next course of action. The dire situation makes everyone depressed, but Kenji tries to raise up their spirit.

They have two options to escape, the train and by a car, and Kunikida decides on the car since he doesn’t want the civilians to get involved if they get caught. The Hunting Dogs also divide into two pairs, and Jouno and Tetchou takes the route by car.

Atsushi, still stuck in the basement, gets approached by the military, who prepares to shoot. Unaware of the situation, Atsushi is helpless, but Kyoka uses her Demon Snow to save him, and they run off together.

Kunikida steals a car, and they all drive off. However, they don’t go far before getting chased down by Jouno’s ability, who throws Kenji off the car.

Junichiro uses Light Snow to swap himself and Jouno out the car. Jouno reveals this was their plan all along as they plan to kill them both first, but Kunikida returns, saying he won’t leave anyone behind.

Kunikida’s group tries to escape again, but their car is cut down in half by Tetchou’s sword. Tetchou incapacitates everyone and prepares to cut down Yosano. Kunikida shields her and tries to plead with Jouno, to no avail.

Suddenly, the sword slash is interrupted by gravity manipulation. A helicopter arrives with Chuuya in it, and he reveals that he came to save everyone on Mori’s orders.
