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 writers of the past. Your task as a Special Duty Librarian (特務司書, or tokumu shisho), also known as Alchemist (アルケミスト), 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 equipment books (有装書, or yuusousho) 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.
This is a wiki to help English-speaking players enjoy the literature-themed DMM online game 文豪とアルケミスト (Writers & Alchemist, or Bungo / Bungou to Alchemist), also known shortly as 文アル (BunAl / BunAru). We aim to provide a high-quality interpretation of the game's mechanics and nuances, and hope that all can come to understand Japanese culture and the spirit and charm of this game better through our efforts.

Izumi Kyouka lived in mortal dread of dogs and lighting, and was so devout that whenever he passed before a Shinto shrine or Buddhist temple he would bow in worship, first removing his glasses so that nothing would stand between himself and the divinities.
