In case you didn’t watch the original, there are currently 3 seasons, and the synopsis of the original goes:
Stalked by a beastly white tiger, Atsushi Nakajima has no idea that the menace lives inside him—a power that catches the attention of the Armed Detective Agency. Using inhuman abilities to combat crime, this team takes Atsushi under the wing of their most eccentric member, Dazai. Together, they tear through mafia-muddled mysteries while enemies keep an eye on the tiger’s lofty bounty.
Bungou Stray Dogs is a great anime, and the gag spin-off being listed with 12 episodes means fans will have some more time to enjoy the characters as we wait for Season 4 of the main story!
