Osamu Dazai's Entrance Exam

Doppo Kunikida is an idealist and a straitlaced detective at the Armed Detective Agency, an organization that takes on dangerous jobs even the police won't handle. Everything in his life is going just as he's planned...until one day, he's paired up with the agency's newest hire: a suspicious, eccentric, suicide-obsessed man named Osamu Dazai. Their first case together turns out to be far more complicated than Kunikida anticipated-and it looks like the detective agency's sworn enemy, the Port Mafia, is somehow involved, too!

Set two years before the events of the manga series, this is the tale of how two seemingly incompatible personalities end up forming the partnership that has made them one of Yokohama's top detective duos!

A wake me up

I honestly read this book to help me fall asleep, but I ended up energized and eager to finish this story in one sitting. The plot was oddly similar to the anime/manga which shouldn’t actually be the case due to the different time settings. However, this did not take much away from the story for it remarkably showcased the character’s personality and detailed insights as they strive to solve the mystery. I couldn’t put the book down as the suspense was building up. I was literally holding back screams and squeals because the anticipation was killing me (figuratively of course). Once I reached the climax, truly unexpected I must say, I was utterly speechless, bewildered with what I just read. Perhaps one would say that I’m overreacting, but with my knowledge from the manga and anime, the outcome was so meticulous yet fathomable. Even though I finished reading nearly at 2 a.m. (please don’t be like me and rest) I was beyond satisfied with this light novel. If you want a good mystery/detective story or want to find out how Dazai got into the Armed Detective Agency, then I definitely recommend this!
