During the release of the eight issue of Weekly Shonen Champion magazine, the creator of the popular BEASTARS manga Paru Itagaki commented in her author’s note saying that the “end is in sight” for the series. She also said that she is will be working hard to make sure the series will be well until the end and she invites fans to follow along with the journey.
The BEASTARS manga was created by Paru Itagaki, and it sold over 1.3 million printed copies as of April last year. Its immense popularity had also got the series to win multiple awards, including the being the Akita Shoten title to win the Manga Taisho award.
The story of BEASTARS takes place in a modern world inhabited by anthropomorphic creatures divided between the herbivores and carnivores. Our main hero, Legoshi, is a timid gray wolf and is a student of Cherryton Academy, where he stays in a dorm with other carnivores. The tension between herbivores and carnivores began when Tem the alpaca was brutally murdered and been eaten. While this has been going on, Legoshi crossed paths with a dwarf rabbit named Haru, in which he grew feelings with as the story progresses.
Here is a detailed synopsis about the BEASTARS manga as shared by VIZ Media:
At a high school where the students are literally divided into predators and prey, it’s personal relationships that maintain the fragile peace. Who among them is a Beastar—an academic and social role model destined to become a leader in a society naturally rife with mistrust?
Last night at Cherryton Academy, an herbivore student was killed and eaten. Among the members of the drama club, the herbivores’ suspicions naturally turn to their carnivore classmates… The prime suspect? Legosi, a large wolf. But he wouldn’t hurt a fly—or would he? And will dwarf rabbit Haru bring out the beast in him? Or are his feelings for her…something else?
The announcement of the English release of BEASTARS happened during VIZ Media’s panel in Anime NYC that happened in November 2019. Aside from this series, the other titles that they’ve announced were Komi Can’t Communicate by Tomohito Oda, Boku no Hero Academia Smash!! spinoff manga by Hirofumi Neda, and the novel Automatic Eve by Rokuro Inui.
