Description: Bungo Stray Dogs

The story focuses on a young adult named Atsushi Nakajima. After he had been kicked out of his orphanage, Atsushi accidentally stopped the suicide of a detective named Osamu Dazai believing he was drowning in the river. During his interactions with Dazai, Atsushi learns he is a gifted possessed supernatural ability capable of transforming into a berserker white tiger; this made the orphanage torture him and a kick him out in the past. Dazai recruits him into the Agency, and many others, as they tackle various cases and events taking place within the city of Yokohama, a place teeming with individuals with Supernatural Abilities. Atsushi becomes the target of the Port Mafia members, most notably Dazai's former mentor Ryūnosuke Akutagawa, as there is a bounty on his head in the black market.

During Atsushi's fights against the mafia, he also meets Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald, the leader of the Fellowship of the Guild who wants to have him. Fitzgerald reveals there is a supernatural book capable of changing reality linked with Atsushi's tiger and thus put his bounty to obtain him. Fitzgerald disregards any superficial damage the Guild might bring to Yokohama in exchange for the book, having an airship named "Moby Dick" destroy the city. However, he is nearly killed by Atsushi and Akutagawa once joining forces while former mafia Kyoka Izumi stops Moby Dick.

Another man known as Fyodor Dostoyevsky appears wishing to obtain the book too in order to erase the idea of people being gifted. He arranges a mortal fight between the detectives and the mafia but the true leader behind this organization, Natsume Soseki, stops the fight. While Atsushi and Akutagawa corner the virus' originator, Dazai manages to arrest Dostoyevsky with Fitzgerald's help. However, Dostoyevsky is later revealed to have orchestrated his own imprisonment in order to lead his followers. Pages of the book are later found by Dostoyevsky's group Decay of Angels who use its powers to frame the Agency for a murder case. Dazai is imprisoned alongside as Dostoyevsky. The government sends its military forces known as the Hunting Dogs to execute the meembers from the Agency. As the Agency faces defeat, they form an alliance with Fitzgerald and the mafia in exchange of one of their followers. Across the multiple fights, it is revealed there is another person above Dostoyevsky and that must be stopped.

Editor’s Note:

This description came from Wikipedia's Bungo Stray Dogs page. I would prefer a more personal description of this anime so if you would like to write one I would greatly appreciate it.
