Great show about animal people :)

Both are testaments to show that fully CG anime aren't always bad. Both have interesting worlds that make you want to learn more about the setting.

Both are unique non-cliche works, hard to find resembling anime for both. Both have some unexpected dark and adult material down the road (each in its own way). Both using 3D CGI and at the same time both are a rare cases of art didn't get totally ruined by it like in many other anime last years. Both protagonists have animal traits (though in Dorohedoro protagonist have only lizard head, when in Beastars all characters are anthropomorphic animals) and both of them have funny moments coming from their animal species.

There's something really similar about Hikigaya and Legoshi: it's their sincerity towards others and how they are always on the sideline while everyone else seem more important. Also, the wolf-like eyes (Legoshi is literally being a wolf though). Both shows take place in a school setting and tackle life problems with other people. Because of the resemblance I started watching Beastars so you might check it out, too. Although it takes time to get used to since characters are all animals there.

Both portrait a friendly relationship between a wolf and a herbivore, against all odds.

Both stories are set in universe were humanoid creatures rule the land. The main story of Beastars centers around a teenage wolf who, while trying to figure out who murdered one of his classmates, is also in a journey of fitting into society, similar in how Retsuko tries to fit in within her office. Although Beastars is not a comedy, it shows the protagonist's adaptation to real world problems and how he can solve them without making it seem like it's a big deal, just like Retsuko tries to solve her own problems

Set in a school where the students are a mixture of anthropomorphic animals, both focus on interpecies relationship. While Seton Gakuen is a comedy, Beastars is a drama.

Two shows with vastly different themes and tones that share many similarities. Anthropomorphic animal characters in a slice of life setting. CGI heavy animation. Series length / Time investment.  
report Recommended by JVskunkape
Both anime highlight the journey of self-exploration as well as the hardships societal rules could place on its citizens. Both stories are presented in an original setting. Both anime have underlying dark and adult themes dealing with adolescent characters. Both have anthropomorphic animal characters. Both have love triangles.

Romantic relationship between different species that is shunned by society.

What even is a Beastar? What gardening club could exist with only one member? Are there really schools like that? OMG, furries! Beastars is truly something new, but, it does have inspirations, and there are a few things about it that really only make sense as a faithful adaptation of another work. (E.g., why in the world would someone as powerful in society at the Beastar be solely chosen from among high school children?) I think one of those inspirations is a mildly-infamous 2006 yuri show called Strawberry Panic. The two works share many elements: • The elite boarding school setting. • The fruit-themed institution names (Cherryton Academy and  read more

Beastars and Somali to Mori no Kamisama Both Have -Themes similar to racial discrimination -Worlds with darker elements -Protagonists who want to change and help others

Beast world. Beastars and Boy and Beast follow a world full of beasts operating as one would expect humans to operate as; a civilisation. There are not a lot of similarities in both stories, but there is a rivalry between MCs in both stories. Both are good anime with Beastars being a fantastic drama, Boy and Beast being a good action-comedy supernatural adventure of a movie.

A balance between trying to fit into societal expectations while balancing an animal's instinctive nature  
report Recommended by inuko101
Both involve two species trying to co exist in the world and the struggles they have to go through. In this case, it's carnivores and herbivoes, in TG it's Ghouls and Humans. Both carnivores and ghouls are feared by herbivores, and humans.

Although their stories are miles apart from one another, what both shows really excel in is their characters. The way they behave, think and feel is depicted in such a nuanced, realistic and human-like manner that you can’t help but care for them and their struggles. Highly recommended if you appreciate layered and complex characters.

Both the anime have...... 1: Great op 2: Unwanted unlimited fan service 3: Polygamy ( 1 person having s*xual relation with 2 or more people ) in this case Haru from beastar have made record 4: wiredest relationship  
report Recommended by Zean102
Both animes have very interesting and honestly deep takes on sexuality, as well as the relationships between each of the characters. They both have their fair share of comedy, while still being captivating enough to keep me on the edge of my seat. Overall, I think if you liked Maid anime, you would for sure like Beastars for almost every reason.

A love story between two different species. The guy is the awkward one and the girl is the confident one. The girl is in danger because of the guy. Also, there's that lovely hint of awkwardness in their love life as they struggle to figure out what they can do with each other.

tensura and beastars both are anime set in Non-Human Protagonists Legoshi And Ranga Both same is Wolves  
report Recommended by Zonecommander26
Both series take a similar approach in carefully creating anthropomorphized animals with human characteristics. While Beastars focuses more on exploring darker themes of human society, Shirokuma Cafe explores how everyday interactions give rise to friendship. If you like the world building aspect and interaction of different animal species in Beastars, the easy-going anime Shirokuma Cafe might be your cup of tea. It also features a somewhat awkward panda as a protagonist.

Ishida and Legosi. Both MC males have committed a sin to a girl and they are both atoning for what they have done.

It follows the same tropes of "Beauty and the Beast"

Some of the characters in Scum's Wish are similar to the relationship Haru has with men. Male characters have to accept the lascivious nature of the women. The women have to think about the best ways to handle their mental health.

Different species with animal characteristics living together and how it affects the society, including different customs, mingling of biological differences and even (fantasy equivalent of) racism. While in Centaur no Nayami the social commentary is more of a secondary theme, in Beastars it's the main focus.

The every day life of younglings falling in love but is of different kind/status. Truth be told they feel very similar even though the settings are very different. At the core they grab you and drag you along a journey of something that should be slow and boring but refuses to let you go and clings to you untill the end.

The Main Character voiced by Kobayashi Chikahiro is a socially awkward guy and has a small girl named Haru as a love interest.

It might surprising, but I see quite some similarities with Beastars and my favourite anime. First of all, both make use of a type of animation rarely seen in anime: stop-motion. More precisely, the OP of Beastars and multiple witches and their labyrinths in PMMM are animated according to this style. Second, their OSTs are splendid (in my opinion, PMMMs is by far richer and much more varied, that without even counting the trilogy of movies) and the soundtracks are fitting like a glove to the scenes. Third, they make great use of symbolisms to express their themes. Fourth, they both take a respective concept and  read more

- Two sympathetic protagonists who are trying to avoid being consumed by a darkness in their hearts; initially losing this battle, they attempt to connect with different people in their lives and become functioning people. - They both deal with prejudice and bullying (especially Season 2 in Sangatsu's case) and society's inability to fix these issues. - Memorable casts with people from all walks of life, many of which attempt to reach out to the protagonist during dark times. - Dense story arcs with gradual build-ups and dramatic payoffs..

It shows norms and values on the very roots of double standards between herbivores and carnivores. Speciesism as a whole with the natural moral dilemma similar to humans.

Both shows have characters who are anthropomorphic. In this case it's animal people.
