Why is the book is the one of the most important thing in Bungou stray dogs universe?
!!warning!!: not spoiler-free, another things that youne writes instead of finishing her assignment, most of this is assumptions and fan theories
Continuing from the previous part, how did Dazai got 'connected' with another Dazai from another 'book'?. Well, I'm suspecting one thing that Dazai's always bring in the most of his screentime. No, not the bandage. What? Yes, the sewer-slide book (I have to mispronounce the word, avoiding tumblr to eat this blog) or let's say it's the red book.
Well, Dazai always bring the red book everywhere. We know that inside the book is something like 'Ways to commit sewer-slide'. Let's say that Dazai already completed the books soooo many times that probably he's more familiar with a way to commit sewer-slide than doing work report. That means he already do every methode that written on the book right? Then why is he not changing to another book, knowing that most of the methodes he already tried is a failure? Yes, I know he's mentioned in the first episode that we never get bored with everything that's good. But he's reading it everyday like it's a newspaper. Even I, I used to have a favorite book too. But not long after a week, I'm getting bored of it.
Another things that we should keep in mind is, why is the red book get into Dazai's arm? I don't have any hints about this. If he bought it from a book store, what kind of book store selling a books that sells a book that telling you how to commit sewer-slide? And we don't even know who write the book.
But it is revealed that the book that Fyodor and Fitzgerald currently searching doesn't looks like Dazai's red book. Then again, what about both of the book is a representation of an ability?
And this is my favorite part, the fact that books probably have more screentime than your favorite character(/hj), also Fyodor and Fitzgerald is currently searching of a book. What kind of book actually? Well, according to Fandom site, it is stated that the book "is a supernatural book desired by different parties of ability users. It is said that anything written in the book becomes a reality. Its whereabouts are unknown, however many say it is sealed."
It's also mentioned that Kamui have a stolen page of the book in chapter 83.5 . The book itself can grant anything you write on the book with following rules:
You can only writes a few sentences on the each page.
Just like a story, the Book's contents must follow rules of karma. This means that extreme statements, such as "All of humanity will be destroyed", cannot be brought to reality.
What is written in the Book or page must follow a narrative of a story. In accordance with restriction number 2, anyone using the page must make a number of events occur with their own efforts in order to follow the flow of the narrative. Only then would certain desired events written in the Book or page become reality.
In Beast AU, the book is a 'main point' of the whole universe. Actually, some of the most multiverse. It seems like the book have a bigger role in Beast AU than canon one. I mention it earlier, what about both of the book is a representation of an ability? Probably something like, telephone concept. If you don't understand, it's basically like 'if there's sender, there's recipient' and both of the book acting like a sender and recipient.
We still don't know what's the origin both of the book and the red book one. And there's a lot of chance there will be a new Bungou Stray Dogs alternates universe. Whether it be Dazai's the main character, or a whole different stories.
Phew, it's very tiring to write this in a middle of a night. By the way, happy birthday to Ango.
