Based on the acclaimed manga by Paru Itagaki, the BEASTARS TV anime is on the way from anime studio Orange. The adaptation is officially set to air on Fuji TV’s +Ultra programming block this October, with Netflix locking down exclusive streaming rights. Check out the latest trailer below.
Itagaki’s manga—which is serialized in Akita Shoten‘s Weekly Shonen Champion magazine in Japan—is coming out in English via Viz Media. Here’s how they describe it:
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?
If you missed it, the first promo debuted in February.
