Recent news by the February issue of Kadokawa’s Monthly Shonen Ace revealed that the popular anime Bungo Stray Dogs BEAST spinoff manga will end in January. So the manga’s last release will be shown in the magazine’s next issue in January. The spinoff manga is based on Asagiri’s light novel of the same name.
The spinoff centers on Ryunosuke Akutagawa, who promises to get revenge on a man dressed in black so as to rescue his sister. However, as he nearly dies due to starvation, a man from the Armed Detective Agency appears.
Hoshikawa launched the manga adaptation back in December of 2019. Kadokawa magazine then published the manga’s third compiled book volume on 3rd August. Hoshikawa had revealed on Twitter earlier in July that the manga was soon going to approach its end.
The Bungo stray Dogs BEAST light novel was shipped in Japan in April 2019.
The spinoff manga has also influenced a new live action film, called Bungo Stray Dogs the Movie: Beast. The film will be launched in Japan on January 7.
The first TV anime adaptation based on the original Bungo Stray Dogs manga aired from April to June 2016. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it was airing in Japan.
Season 2 of the anime then aired from October to December in the same year, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired again. The series’ third season premiered in April 2019 and both Crunchyroll as well as Funimation streamed the season.
The spinoff manga by Kanaineko called Bungo Stray Dogs Wan! (Bungo Stray Dogs Ruff!) also inspired a TV anime that was launched in January 2021. Again, streaming giants Crunchyroll and Funimation streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.
Additionally, an anime film titled Bungo Stray Dogs: Dead Apple premiered in Japan in March 2018. Crunchyroll once again was the one that streamed the film in September 2018 and Funimation followed suit in June 2019.
