Description: Nakajima Atsushi was kicked out of his orphanage, and now he has no place to go and no food. While he is standing by a river, on the brink of starvation, he rescues a man whimsically attempting suicide. That man is Dazai Osamu, and he and his partner Kunikida are members of a very special detective agency. They have supernatural powers, and deal with cases that are too dangerous for the police or the military. They're tracking down a tiger that has appeared in the area recently, around the time Atsushi came to the area. The tiger seems to have a connection to Atsushi, and by the time the case is solved, it is clear that Atsushi's future will involve much more of Dazai and the rest of the detectives!

Hey there
 
Finally caught up the manga !! My favorite character so far is Ranpo ♥
 
 
So here are my assumptions so far, I may be wrong, but I'm quite sure to know the identity of the virus ability user &  the nature of his ability, based on literature references. In this arc, "Rats" have been mentioned quite a lot, and they are definitely related to the plague. Also the name Meursault appeared (the name of detention facility, chap 47 i think), but Meursault is also the name of the main character of "the Stranger" a famous book written by a French author, But this author most famous book is "the Plague"  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Plague) So considering the hints so far, I'm quite sure it's linked to this, i guess the virus guy name is likely Camus, and his ability "plague". I may be totally wrong though, that's just an assumption Also the mask on the cover page of the chapter where the assassin appears  (46) is a typical mask of plague doctors : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plague_doctor

The assassin was already revealed in case you didn't notice. Probably in Ch-47 or 48. But I think the Virus ability user will be based upon a Russian writer and the Rats will be an all Russian gang or whatever they are (As in case of the Guild- they were all Americans). Even the assumed Virus ability user with lots of siblings was based on a favour Russian novelist.

Did Dazai actually confess to him?

Did Dostoyevsky use his ability on Dazai?

I think Dostoyevsky's ability allows him to bestow punishment (i.e. death) to the ones who CONFESS their crimes to him. That's why he was able to use his ability on that kid but not on Ace (Ch-42) or Ougai because they didn't confess their crimes outright.

Did Dazai actually confess to him?

Thank you very much Dazai Scan folk. I've almost fallen with this manga. Finally... a manga with some brain into it...

I hope that Atsushi, in his quest for Dostoyevsky, runs into Akutagawa, and they team up again. I need more Shin Soukoku action.

Oh shit, Ranpo already knows what awaits Jinko. This is getting better and better.

 

PS: You just can't get in love with any female in BSD

Still shipping Kyouka and Atsushi

What I love most about this series is how much the author loves books.

It sucks that EGS won't be sending out anymore chapters, but HEY! The oji-san with the great beard got his whale back! And it's adorable! :D[/quote]
HE DID? I had completely missed that chapter somehow. Oh gosh, I am too happy to even write properly! Here's to hoping that there will be more about them in the future, preferably an extra chapter about their journeys around the world. [quote name="tomono" timestamp="1471158310"]

Gin is so precious. I too feel my inner lesbian blossoming when I see her. XD

Yen Press, we license everything and dmca everyone but we release nothing.

PSA from EGS: Much as we adore this series, we are dropping it as it has been licensed by Yen Press. A big thanks to everyone who has worked on this project, and thank you very much for following our releases until now. Please be sure to purchase the official English volumes when they are available :”) You’ll find a more long-winded explanation on the last page of this chapter.

 

And while you are waiting for the official translation, you can keep up with the rest of the series at Dazai Scans. They are up to date with the RAWs.

Good decision. Too bad we'll get a volume maybe a year. Yen Press is just the worst.

"Like stray dogs splattered with mud." 

Roll credits!

(OH NO A TITLE DROP.) Don't worry, Akutagawa, I'd faint too if Dazai-senpai noticed me too...

Hah! :D

That was a rough (IMO) introduction for the Detective Agency's Head's ability. But all in all, an acceptable and good conclusion to the current arc.

 

Okay, Atsushi, you had learn how to properly use your ability, you managed to team-up with Akutagawa, you actually defeated the head of the Guild (with Rashomon's help), and you finally got your loli back safe and sound...

So i hope after this you'll start to become more badass you heard me!?

I want Akutagawa and Atsushi to be best buds. I really do.
