About this deal

For his one-year anniversary in the Mafia, Chūya is surprised by his friends, the Flags, who hand him a photograph of him as an ordinary child after going behind Ōgai Mori's back to uncover Chūya's background. Later, with Verlaine put to sleep, N—having killed his Mafia captors—remotely unleashes Demonic Beast Guivre, the singularity living inside Verlaine. Osamu Dazai's Entrance Exam · Osamu Dazai and the Dark Era · The Untold Origins of the Detective Agency · Gaiden: Ayatsuji Yukito VS. As compared to the previous six, this novel is the longest, most laborious, and the one written in a lot of different places all the while groaning as I think about the this and the that, and all the possibilities that could happen.

But for the time being, I would like to leave that destiny of Chuuya to the power of your imagination. The PM might have mostly avoided taking part in it (canon reason why they managed to take over the underworld in its wake), but they still suffered from it all the same, especially since they had just spent and lost a lot of resources during their fight against Verlaine. But as he makes plans to move up, a man by the name of PaulVerlaine-claiming to be his younger brother-appears and vows toassassinate everyone he cares about!Nothing ever stays quiet for long in the world of Bungo Stray Dogs , and the action sets in quickly. Many shocks emerge over the course of its three-hundred-sixty-four pages – making this the longest in the series by a wide margin! With no other choice, Verlaine activates Brutalization and decimates the Mafia's squads, but Chūya and Adam, per Dazai's earlier plan, poison Verlaine in that state. He sets out for his mission after his aircraft's crash landing, then asks a village boy for someone named Chūya Nakahara. For his final journal entry, Rimbaud wrote having gifted Verlaine with a bowler hat that could control command sequences using ability metal powder.

What lies ahead of his path, for now, would remain a secret, but I can only tell you one thing that's for sure — that road is not a smooth and easy one. The novel was originally published with a quote miscredited to Cao Zhi from his work the Luo Shen Fu, it would later be replaced with a quote by Alexander Pope from his work An Essay on Man.If you like love/hate relationships, references to French poets, and reincarnation storylines, you may want to take a look at our previous review of Bungo Stray Dogs: Dazai, Chuuya, Age Fifteen. The mystery behind the Arahabaki and Verlaine incident in Fifteen has now been unraveled in this book. After some time, Chūya decides against meeting his parents to Mori's confusion, as Chūya merely asserts that the Port Mafia is now his family. With Verlaine succumbing to the beast, Chūya and Adam get swallowed inside, while Guivre tramples on everything in its path, including N, and heads towards Yokohama.

Verlaine then urges N to tell him about The Secret of the Gentle Forest, but N reveals that these pages have been ripped off by Rimbaud. Up to now, the longest one was "55 Minutes" but even so, the afterword in that book starts from page 308. He was the boy who was thought to have originally possessed the self-contradicting ability that created Chūya. However, even the extended length of this one is not enough to save it from the challenges of the others. After N mentions knowledge of The Secret of the Gentle Forest to a shocked Verlaine, N makes a short-lived escape, while Shirase ultimately rescues Chūya.
