The anime community is abuzz with chatter, and it’s all about Bungo Stray Dogs Season 5. Fans have been on the edge of their seats, eagerly awaiting each episode drop. But as the season nears its conclusion, a burning question has emerged: Will there be an Episode 12?
The Intrigue and Excellence of Bungo Stray Dogs
Before we dive into the nitty-gritty, let’s take a moment to appreciate the sheer brilliance of Bungo Stray Dogs as a series. Studio Bones has outdone themselves, creating a world of intriguing arcs and complex characters that never feel rushed. The anime has been on an upward trajectory, with Season 5 scoring an impressive 8.7 on MyAnimeList, surpassing the already stellar 8.4 rating of its predecessor, Season 4.
“The best thing about this series is that it gets better with every season,” says an avid fan.
The Cliffhanger Legacy: Will It Continue?
Season 4 left us hanging, quite literally, with a cliffhanger ending in Episode 13. This suspenseful note was picked up at the beginning of Season 5, and fans have been speculating whether the current season will follow suit.
“Every fan has crossed their fingers to see if the series will follow the same pattern and if we will be left with an unfinished ending in the fifth season as well,” mentions a dedicated viewer.
The Unfortunate News: No Episode 12
Sadly, it looks like the creators have decided to break the pattern this time around. Bungo Stray Dogs Season 5 will conclude with Episode 11, leaving fans both relieved and disappointed. The season has been a rollercoaster, following the detectives of the Armed Detective Agency as they were framed for terrorism and fought to clear their names.
“Bungo Stray Dogs Season 5 will not be getting an Episode 12 as the creators have planned to conclude the season with Episode 11,” confirms the official statement.
A Brutal Finale Awaits
If you thought the penultimate episode was intense, brace yourselves. Preview images and the synopsis for the concluding episode indicate a finale that’s expected to be just as gory and shocking.
“The ending episode is expected to bring the same level of goryness,” reveals a source close to the production.
