Ten years before the events of the manga series, a fateful encounter brings a professional bodyguard named Yukichi Fukuzawa and an arrogant boy genius named Ranpo Edogawa together. The result: the establishment of the Armed Detective Agency, an organization that takes on dangerous jobs even the police won't handle!
This third light novel is the Bungo Stray Dogs series was a hugely entertaining read, especially since, unlike the first two books, this one was a 'new' story and not one I already knew from the anime. I liked the opening sequence, in which we learned the backstory behind Atsushi's entrance exam, and then we continued into the story of how Ranpo and Fukuzawa met and ended up forming the Armed Detective Agency. All up this was a fun tale with some great artwork interspersed through the story. Recommended for fans of the anime and manga.
