Here's the ever popular HMD post. Please be advised I keep one for the express purpose of improving. Flames will not be tolerated, and I reserve the right to defend my characterization of Atsushi. I ask in return you respect my replies as I will answer you with as little bias as possible and respect you came to me.

But, please cite threads and logs for examples of what's wrong and reference canon pages to back your crit. This is also a plotting post to contact me when there's no other way to get a hold of me. I'm up for most plots if they're explained to me.

itsoktolive: (This is the target.)
Bungo Stray Dogs is a series that deals with a lot of heavy topics. Atsushi has a traumatic childhood full of physical and verbal abuse. It's not for the faint of heart due to the level it reached.

He won't bring it up himself and it might not come up if ever. But, here's where you can tell me not to tag you or to avoid said topics.

I will by default, and warn appropriately when it does come up.

Canon Point: Manga Chapter 43 - Right after reading the special report

Background:The series Bungo Stray Dogs takes place in a world like our own with the exception of people with abilities. They’re the rare few but, the story focuses on them and their faction battles within the city of Yokohama. The tale is told specifically from the view point of Nakajima Atsushi and the Armed Detective Agency that accepts contracts to protect people in cases that fall into the grey side of the law.

This tale is about their rise.


To understand Nakajima Atsushi, one has to look past the surface. At a glance, Atsushi is a normal person in an office full of strange people. Their antics stress him out and he’s running a constant commentary inside his head that’s either confused, stressed, and sensing bullshit on the rise. He’s the normal humble guy that offers smiles and polite words to clients. He even cheerfully will list tasks off to a coworker.

Then Dazai, his mentor sends him a text about his latest suicide plans and he tells him congratulations just like anyone else in the office would. He’s a sweet guy but, there’s a line he draws when it comes to ridiculous. He’s totally fine with getting beat up, blown up, stabbed in million different ways, and losing a limb because he's protecting other people. Helping someone die goes against everything he believes. You see, Atushi is a bit of a pacifist.

He’s the first to suggest working together and will give his enemies a chance to stop what they’re doing. Why commit needless violence against each other? He has a vast heart he wears on his sleeve and everyone he meets is added to it. Hatred confuses him which is a bit funny. The only thing the world gave him up until recently was hate and fear. Beneath the up-beat and sometimes exasperated demeanor, Atsushi has very little self worth. He was told to die and beaten as a child in ways that made his pain tolerance unnaturally high. He treats people as he wanted to be treated all that time ago when he was locked away in a dark cell like an animal in a cage.

Atsushi internalizes his problems. Unless they directly come up in conversation he says little to nothing about himself. His focus is and always will be at least for now, other people. That’s a problem since he needs someone to tell him it’s okay to live. Until he breaks out of the never ending loop of abuse from his past haunting his steps, Atsushi’s self worth can’t recover.

So, it’s a good thing that he’s fairly easy to influence. Some people might even call him gullible. He’s not, Atsushi is just very new to the wide world. He’s even newer to his opinion mattering. Give him a little kindness and he’ll do anything he can to pay it back. It could be used to manipulate him but, so far the people who reach out to him have been concerned for his health and well being. His kind heart has always existed but, thanks to his coworkers at the Agency, he’s got the chance to show bravery and live a life with no regrets.

With these tools under his belt, he is capable of standing up to the kind of people that would use others or destroy them for their own gain. Atsushi still is that normal person that is constantly baffled by all the insanity of his life. But beneath that is a steadfast warrior willing to leap right into the heart of danger for the sake of saving others. He might not be able to tell himself that he deserves to live. But one day in the future whether by his own questions or the kind words of his friends and allies, he might arrive at that conclusion.


Within the world of Bungo Stray Dogs some people are born with a special ability. They vary from person to person, some being minor or hardly suited to combat. Others, lethal and so dangerous it’s only when employed by a government agency or taken in by an organization that they can find their place in the world.

Atsushi falls into the second category. His ability Beast Beneath The Moon transforms him into a massive white tiger He originally has no control over it. During those times he raged out of control and wouldn’t remember anything when he woke up. Thanks to Director Yukichi Fukuzawa’s ability All Men Are Created Equal, all members of the Armed Detective Agency have control over their abilities.

Now under his control, Atsushi can turn parts of his body (arms, legs, and even have the tiger tail) into hybrids of tiger and man. He can take the large white tiger shape or even a complete hybrid between man and tiger. His strength is greatly increased and his speed puts him on the top of most fighters. But that pales in comparison to his regenerative ability. He has entirely regenerated a cut off leg in seconds and bullets do nothing to him. His natural aptitude for fighting and clever ideas pair well with being fairly hard to kill. (He has been repeatedly impaled by at least twenty spikes and kept right on going with very little trouble.)

But that doesn’t mean his healing lacks limits. Atsushi needs to be actively using his ability to regenerate. Even if he’s using it, hammer at him long enough or hard enough from the start and he can’t heal fast enough to prevent losing lethal amounts of blood.

Alignment: Thras. Throughout the course of Atsushi’s life, fear and courage have been the defining factors of the pivotal moments. He lived in fear, growing up in the orphanage. It took courage to turn around and fight for his new comrades instead of run. Each moment whether made by fear, or bravery are the core that makes up Nakajima Atsushi.
