Beastars was 2019’s breakout hit; the anime set in a world full of anthropomorphic animals dazzled the audience with its unique art style and a story that’s ironically very humane.
Based on the manga illustrated and written by mangaka Paru Itagaki, the series has genuinely broken ground with its tale of romance twisted with criminal mystery.
In a world where herbivores and carnivores have to abide by laws and co-exist peacefully, something is always bound to go wrong.
Studio Orange has confirmed that season 3 of the Netflix series, Beastars, has been greenlit for production. The studio also announced that a new arc would be animated.
Additionally, the illustrator Paru Itagaki has provided a new visual for season 3.
The hand drawing by the mangaka features the four main characters of the series. From the right, we have the gray wolf Legoshi, the dwarf rabbit Haru, the she-wolf Juno, and lastly, the reindeer Louis.
Season 3 of the series is sure to pick off from where the previous season left, that being Volume 12 of the manga. The original manga has about 22 Volumes, so there is much left for adaptation.
The new season will be rough for Legoshi as he drops out of school and sets on his path. However, with his criminal record, trouble is sure to find him! After facing off against Riz in the finale of the second season, Legoshi sure needs some rest.
The existing fans must be thrilled as the series is getting a season 3, too, just mere months after season 2 was released. However, if you are new to the series, there’s no reason to fret, as there is still a long time before season 3 will come out.
Until then, you can easily catch up to the series!
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.
