Beastars manga series has a unique take on the relationship between predators and their prey. Paru Itagaki’s manga takes place in a world where animals live in a civilized environment similar to humans in reality.
The story of Beastars is an emotional rollercoaster. It portrays animals, but surprisingly, does a fantastic job of depicting human drama.
The manga succeeds in narrating the real-world issues such as discrimination, crime, and societal pressures, by drawing parallels between our reality and the world of Beastars.
Through her Twitter account, Mangaka Paru Itagaki confirmed that the Beastars manga series would end in three chapters, with Chapter 197 set to release on October 8th, 2020.

The latest chapter 194, ties up one of the loose ends: the possible relationship between Louis and Juno.
The chapter begins with Juno asking Louis to kiss her as he had on graduation day. Meanwhile, Louis is in deep thought as he thinks about his inevitable future with Azuki.
