In Season 4, Episode 2, Fukuzawa’s act of kindness makes Ranpo the best detective in the world, while a mysterious case is unfolding.
The following contains spoilers for Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4, Episode 2, “Days are Dreams, Nights Are Real,” currently streaming on Crunchyroll.
The gray-covered world of Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4, Episode 1 explodes into a colorful stage for Ranpo’s detective antics as soon as Episode 2 actually begins. Following up on last week’s murder case, Ranpo and Fukuzawa attend a play that quickly turns into a crime scene. The audience watched in horror as the main actor fell to the floor in a pool of blood.
However, the actual plot of the episode doesn’t have much to do with the murder mystery. Obsessed with not being able to understand those around him, Ranpo is pulled out of his misery by Fukuzawa, who offers him the chance to become ‘the world’s best detective’. It’s time for Ranpo to start his detective career and the Armed Detective Agency to take his first steps.
Ranpo debuting as a detective was the agency’s first act
As the play begins and the audience sits enthralled, Ranpo is racking his brains to understand why people would sit and watch a story whose ending is so predictable. Convinced that he was missing something that everyone else could see, he was about to go mad when Fukuzawa pulled him aside and reassured him. Realizing Ranpo’s abilities and perhaps moved by his pain, Fukuzawa gives up on hiding his past to show Ranpo that he is a “gifted” person who can become a “detective” The best in the world”.
This scene is a pivotal moment for Ranpo’s character, as it’s pretty much the core of his origin story – Fukuzawa gives him glasses that he’ll use to control his abilities. . Fukuzawa’s gesture may seem silly, even mocking, but it’s actually an act of compassion for a child who can’t yet understand the world around him and needs guidance. By giving him the glasses, Fukuzawa became Ranpo’s protector and mentor. There was no way Ranpo, whose deductions were so precise and intelligent, didn’t know that the glasses had no real power, but he accepted the gift as it was meant to be: an offer to help. help.
Leaving most of the detective work to Ranpo, Fukuzawa realizes that the boy needs someone to protect him. Even though he was basically a genius, physically he wouldn’t stand a chance against an adept boxer. When he realizes that “a detective must be armed”, he first forms the Armed Detective Agency. In this theater, the alliance between Ranpo and Fukuzawa is the founding act of the agency. Fukuzawa’s decision to protect him so he can safely make his deductions also continues the Holmes/Watson parallel.
Fukuzawa and Ranpo’s alliance reveals more about both characters
Ranpo’s chance encounter with Fukuzawa gives the anime a chance to delve deeper into both characters. It was Fukuzawa’s unwavering presence that allowed Ranpo to break down and express his extreme embarrassment at the way others worked. For someone like him, people are ‘monsters’ that despise him and someone he can’t understand. Almost a metaphor for autism, and certainly by certain interpretations of Sherlock being a socially ignorant person, Ranpo’s torment is the loneliness of the ‘human’. gifted’.
Likewise, Ranpo’s deductions and his need for help force Fukuzawa to admit his past mistakes. Horrified by his own bloodlust, he eventually gave up his job for the government when he realized he was killing people for pleasure. It’s a poignant moment that opens another piece of the puzzle of which these characters are a part.
The epilogue of Episode 2 also serves as an interesting spoiler — the seemingly solved case turns out to be a ‘case in case’, as the perpetrator kidnaps Ranpo and begins a new season of the series. story. In classic Sherlock Holmes style, a murder has been committed in a closed room, and this time it’s up to Fukuzawa to solve it.
