Storyline

The story takes place in a world of modern, civilized, anthropomorphic animals with a cultural divide between the carnivores and herbivores. The series takes its name from the in-universe rank of Beastar, an individual of great talent, service, and notoriety. Legoshi, a large gray wolf, is a timid and quiet student of Cherryton Academy where he lives in a dorm with several other carnivorous students including his outgoing Labrador friend, Jack. As a member of the school's drama club, Legoshi works as a stagehand and supports the actors of the club headed by the star pupil Louis, a red deer. Out of nowhere, Tem the alpaca is brutally murdered and devoured in the night setting a wave of unease and distrust between the herbivore and carnivore students. At the same time, Legoshi has a fateful encounter with Haru, a small dwarf rabbit, and begins developing complex feelings for her.

Extremely Odd, Interesting, Entertaining, and Bizarre
20 April 2020 | by prisoner-7See all my reviews

This was an interesting mashup of Zootopia and Fruits Basket into a single anime... all of the tension and taboo of interspecies relationships in Zootopia with all the teenage angst and drama in Fruits Basket. If you've seen both shows, you'll be able to guess how this series is going to end.

At times Beastars gets a bit tedious, others times the flow is fast and smooth.. it's easy to binge watch the entire Season 1 since it flows quite naturally. Definitely a refreshing story amid all the cookie cutter anime scripts out there today. I'm actually looking forward to season 2
