Crime always comes along with controversial romances, and Beastars served us this trope with a fun little twist. Instead of humans, the story features anthropomorphic animals we can surprisingly relate to.
Beastars’ second season gave us a pretty climactic ending by solving Tem’s murder, but the story isn’t quite over yet.
The anime is due for another season, but unfortunately, it will be the last one in the series, so naturally, it packs that extra punch we’ve all been waiting for.
Since it’s the final season, it’s bound to be special and different, and the franchise has already started working on the latter.
Orange Studio has revealed that Beastars is getting a new logo for the anime’s final season.
The previous logo was not very different, except that the ‘B’ was blood-red, and the star mark wasn’t colored. Whereas, the new one is black with the star in blood-red color and ‘Final Season’ written below it.
The upcoming season will cover the Interspecies Relations and Revenge of the Love Failure arcs, where Haru and Louis graduate and introduce Melon’s ruthless and sociopathic antagonist.
Moreover, these two arcs dive deeper into the crime part of the story while keeping the romance a bit low-key than usual.
We do get some pretty unexpected and brave confessions from some characters, but it just ends in pain, so be prepared with your tissues.
There is no doubt that the final season will also be heavily dramatic, ruthless, and make you cry rivers like the previous ones. Not to spoil it for you, but you’ll be witnessing characters and plotlines like you never would’ve expected.
Unrest and violations are bound to happen whenever people are divided into prey-predator categories, like herbivores and carnivores in Beastars. The upcoming arc will show more of this and how the civilians tackle it.
With Haru and Louis out of Cherryton Academy, I wonder how Legoshi will deal with everything that awaits him.
Beastars is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Paru Itagaki. It has been serialized in Weekly Shōnen Champion since September 2016, with its chapters collected in 19 tankōbon volumes as of July 2020.
The story takes place in a world of modern, civilized, anthropomorphic animals with a cultural divide between carnivores and herbivores.
It follows the story of Legoshi, a large gray wolf, a timid and quiet student of Cherryton Academy, where he lives in a dorm with several other carnivore students, including his outgoing Labrador friend, Jack.
