Sakunosuke Oda, or Odasaku for short, is another character from the series Bungo Stray Dogs. His character is introduced during the “dark era,” which is a few years prior to the events of the story.
Odasaku belongs to the Port Mafia, an evil organization made up of individuals with unique abilities. His gift, Flawless, lets him see a few seconds into the future if his life is in danger. Odasaku is a kind character (he looks after orphans and doesn’t do any horrible jobs), which is quite odd given the fact that he’s with the Port Mafia.
Odasaku wants to be an author because of what a man told him a few years earlier, but he thinks that if he killed someone he’s lost the privilege to write about human life.
An important part of the story has to do with his friends, Dazai Osamu and Sakaguchi Ango. Dazai is a young man with bandages wrapped around his body from head to toe (the reason is not clarified) and is one of the top executives of the Port Mafia while Ango is a mysterious intelligence officer. However, their friendship does not last, and Odasaku soon dies due to a bullet wound. Dazai is in shambles when this happens, but Odasaku gives him some words of advice before he dies and leads Dazai to join the Armed Detective Agency — the main heroes of the story.
I like Odasaku because he was a really interesting character with lots of remarkable beliefs. While I was watching the anime, you could really tell he was an important person to Dazai. When Dazai found Odasaku before he died, he screamed his name, and you could feel the pain in his voice.
I forgot to mention in my first review (of another character in the series) that all the characters in Bungo Stray Dogsare named after real people, and it turns out that Sakunosuke, Dazai, and Ango were all friends in real life.
