The Bungo Stray Dogs manga will be taking a break next week. It has just been confirmed that the Kafka Asagiri and Sango Harukawa manga will be on hiatus due to "unforeseen circumstances" that have not been immediately disclosed.
The official Bungo Stray Dogs Twitter account shared the news, confirming that the next chapter of the manga will not be published in the upcoming November issue of Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine which goes on sale on October 4, 2022. According to the tweet, the hiatus is due to "unforeseen circumstances" that have fans concerned about the manga.
This isn't the first time that Bungo Stray Dogs went into hiatus due to the same reasons. Back in January 2021, the manga took a break due to "circumstances" which included Asagiri and Harukawa's involvement in the Bungo Stray Dogs: Storm Bringer novel. With that in mind, we're hoping that the chapter is only delayed for a short time and will be back soon.
In the meantime, the fourth season of Bungo Stray Dogs is still expected to premiere in Winter 2023. This was confirmed in August when the first trailer and new key visual for Season 4 were dropped.
The anime's Season 4 will bring back most of the main staff including director Takuya Igarashi, series script supervisor and writer Yoji Enokido, character designer and chief animation director Nobuhiro Arai, and the animation studio BONES.
The returning main cast members include Yuto Uemura as Atsushi Nakajima, Mamoru Miyano as Osamu Dazai, Sumire Morohoshi as Kyoka Izumi, Kensho Ono as Ryunosuke Akutagawa, and Kisho Taniyama as Chuya Nakahara.
The next chapter of Bungo Stray Dogs has not yet been given an official release date. In the meantime, Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4 is set to premiere in January 2023.
