Due to recent community migration, some of the pages of the Bungo to Alchemist English Wiki may not display properly. The issue is being worked on.
Though a soul may perish, its feelings shall never fade away. *A quote from Akutagawa Ryuunosuke's "Aphorisms of a Pygmy".
You are taken to a world where you can meet renowned Japanese writers of the past. Your task is to delve into tainted books (有碍書, or yuugaisho) to purify them, with parties composed of writers (文豪, or bungou) to fight the Taints (侵蝕者, or shinshokusha), who have corroded the books. To gain writers, you must transmigrate them by delving into ensouled books (有魂書, or yuukonsho) or by meeting them while battling Taints in tainted books.
Bungou to Alchemist was launched on November 1, 2016, by DMM GAMES as a browser game, expanding to mobile platform the following year on June 14. Through the years the franchise has expanded into novels, stage plays and even anime.
