We discuss predictions for the Crunchyroll anime series Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4 Episode 4 and include the release date and where to watch online.

Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4 Episode 3 saw the conclusion of the theater mystery. However, it seems that was only the beginning of the drama, as viewers were introduced to an entire villain organization tasked with taking out Gifted people. As Yukichi (Rikiya Koyama) and Ranpo (Hiroshi Kamiya) grow closer to the founding of the detective agency, it seems more and more obstacles are standing in their way. While viewers know the Armed Detective Agency will one day thrive, seeing just how much trouble they had to go through to get there has definitely been an exciting change of pace.

  • On the way to the police station, the officer makes a comment about Ranpo and Yukichi working well together. He asks about Ranpo’s ability to see the truth, while accidentally revealing how much he doubts Ranpo.
  • Realizing they are not heading to the Police Station, Ranpo proposes a game to the officer. If he wins, he gets to know where they are going.
  • Ranpo answers the officer’s questions, revealing the entire murder was really a ploy to kidnap the man in the suit the entire time and that he knows the officer is involved.
  • Back at the theater, Yukichi grows suspicious of the officer with Ranpo, and learns his name is Senior Officer Mitamura.
  • Concerned, Yukichi goes to leave the theater and finds with Ranpo’s handwriting warning them that Mitamura is the actual perpetrator, and instructing him to locate the cane from earlier.
  • Yukichi searches the stage for the cane, and when he finds it, he sees a memory chip inside.
  • Mitamura explains he is part of an organization that plans to “rid the country of evil people” and invites Ranpo to join their cause, but he declines.
  • Yukichi visits the assassin Sakunosuke Oda in prison and explains that memory chip is used by people in witness protection. It is special because it’s only given to the Gifted. He asks Oda about an Organization that goes by the name of V. Although he does not want to be involved with people who kill for ritual, he gives Yukichi their location in exchange for better food.
  • As Mitamura points a gun in his face, Ranpo realizes that organization V is run by Gifteds to flush out other Gifted people.
  • Yukichi comes bursting through the window to his rescue.
  • After making sure Ranpo is okay, Yukichi scolds the detective for being reckless and worrying him. Ranpo sobs and apologizes.
  • They see in the newspaper that Mitamura was murdered while in custody.
  • On top of a nearby building, we see Fyodor correcting Yukichi’s pronunciation of V to “five”.
  • After returning his cane, Yukichi makes a request of the man in the suit. He wants to obtain a Gifted Business Permit and asks for his knowledge of the Gifted Special Operations Division.
  • The man, whose name is Natsume Soseki, agrees to help.

I came close with a few of my predictions last week, but I could’ve never guessed this murder would leave us to Organization V. With no preview trailer after this week’s episode, it will be harder to guess what will happen next, but surely not impossible. If nothing else, we at least know we are returning to the present.

  • Last season ended with the Cannibalism Arc. Knowing that the next arc should be the Cannibalism Aftermath Arc. If the next arc takes place in the present, this would make sense.
  • Considering Fyodor keeps popping up, I imagine he will have a major part to play in this next arc. Although we saw him arrested last season, I could see him easily breaking out.
