Welcome Furries

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS

This review will go over The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly parts of this show for me, but with the bad first, because it's more fun that way :)

THE BAD

Just like the first season of beastars, the second season begins promising and gradually propels itself to utter neanderthalic proportions. The beginning starts off with the mystery of who killed Tem, instigated by a giant snake security guard who just loves to slither in the air vents, and scare passing students, which is great. Sadly enough this character doesn’t appear past the first couple of episodes, Legoshi just decides to put ...

Beastars is an anime that I watched in a whole rainy night before the pandemic appeared. At first sight, I ended it and I thought that it was nothing out of the world, but as soon as time passed, I started to rewatch parts of it and I gradually started to think how a delight of a piece it was. And now that I have this second season, I just reafirm it.

If you refuse to watch this just because you don’t want to be called a furry, you are just a reprimed anime watcher that is afraid to like something because of a category; ...

Let's be honest: Have you ever thought of sequels that just blows the original out of proportion and into peak culture? We definitely have seen quite the popularity of shows with fanbases claiming for sequels after the originals finished their run (i.e. Kaguya-sama, heck even Yuru Camp with their massive score jumps for sequel seasons), and in the case of Beastars, the basis largely stays intact with more world-building, intricate characters, consistent visuals and music to back that score jump.

For those who've already watched Season 1, you know how massively outstanding Beastars was when we needed a breath of fresh air into the light of ...

Everyone’s favorite weird looking furry anime is back! Season 1 surprised me by being way better than I thought it was going to be. I hated the animation style, but the story and characters were compelling, and I looked forward to season 2. I can now say that I’ve been surprised once again! Season 2 was so good I almost didn’t mind the funky animation!

Season 1 set up some plot threads, but it didn’t really resolve many of them. It was more of an introduction to the society of Beastars and the characters. Season 2 actually follows up on those and it delivers! Remember that ...

My thoughts

Ok I'm gonna be completely honest with this show, which is that I don't think this show is for everyone. I didn't really enjoy season 1, after I finished I suddenly felt like I just wasted my time. But here is my thoughts for season 2.

Story: 2

I might be monkey brain tbh, but the show did a really bad job explaining what's really happening, like I get what's the show about but its just super confusing. Season 2 so far have did a decent job of explaining, yet its still super confusing for me because of the stuff season 1 brought to me. ...

Beastars season 1 was absolutely one of the greatest anime to come out in 2019. The well written characters and gorgeous CG animation allowed the tight narrative to elevate itself in a way most one cour shows could only dream about. Naturally, when a season 2 was immediately confirmed, my hype was palpable, and now that it just finished, let's talk about it.

Story: 9
Remember the first scene of the show? Where a carnivore ruthlessly devours a herbivore in the middle of the night? We're back on that, and our boy Legoshi makes it his mission to find the killer to prove to himself ...

Season 2 of Beastars reminded me just how much I love anime as a medium.

Telling a gripping story about a carnivore coming to realize his place in this anthropomorphous society and going against a fellow carnivore to put an end to the mysterious incident at Cherryton Academy, season 2 of Beastars has taken a huge leap forward in the storytelling department while also still retaining the pros it had in season 1 production-wise, making for a very solid sequel.

Let’s start with the show’s greatest strength: the story. Season 1 of Beastars left off with Legoshi rescuing Haru from the Shishigumi, promising her to become stronger ...

Beastars first season was very surprising to me. I didn't expect a show about anthropomorphic animals to be as good as it was, especially since the last comparable thing I saw was the popular US CGI animal copaganda movie. The characters were multifaceted and there was a pretty intricate set of conflicts.

Beastars second season was more surprising in that it was only okay.

Here are my issues with it:

-The story is almost entirely focused on the singular storyline of fighting Tem's murderer, and some of the major developments in that story didn't feel earned.
-The alternate storyline feels repetitive or stagnant rather than having a back and ...

The main issue with season 2 is that this arc just doesn’t work well as an animated series. It’s really a string of sub arcs that the series doesn’t have the time to explore properly apart from the main arc as a result of being confined to 12 episodes - consequently this series comes across as a writer who is struggling to know how to advance the story forward, setting up lots of smaller conflicts that don’t really mesh well with one another and ultimately forgetting about them whenever its convenient - by the same token character actions and motivations change on a dime whenever ...

*THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS*

I first got a glimpse into what Beastars was scrolling through the Netflix “trending now” list. When I hovered over the show with my mouse, I was taken back by the preview. A beautiful song was playing in the background as a wolf (Legoshi) was holding onto a small white rabbit (Haru), grasping so tightly that even he himself looked in pain. I needed to see more. So, I did. I fell in love with the slow-paced high school drama that season 1 was, but I still wanted so many questions answered; so many mysteries needed to be solved. I think Beastars ...

I am dyslexic, therefore there may be one or two spelling and grammar errors but ill try my best to keep them to a minimum.

I watched season 1 of Beaststar's and found it very enjoyable, probably a 8/10 so I was looking forward to the 2nd season. I wanted to see the show explore a world in which predators and prey live together in a uneasy collaboration where the massive power imbalance between carnivores and herbivores stokes civil unrest in a way that mirrors the real world to a certain extent. Additionally the characters that were introduced and built up were appealing and I ...

*UPDATED REVIEW FROM PRELIMINARY*

"his fangs... are finally what lifted my curse" - Louis

The melancholy yet harsh truth of reality is what Beastars portrays best, its beautiful layering and development far exceeds many anime as of the recent years. And not many seem to understand why due to its somewhat profound plots that aren't relevant or preternatural as some may say, but the real answer is, that Beastars is the closest thing to modern day time and societal issues, its symbolism by using anthropomorphic animals rather than humans is one of the most creative and smartest ways I’ve seen in which to portray human values. In ...

I was quite entertained by the first season and decided to go for the second season expecting some more action and development from the characters. After 5 mediocre episodes in season 2 finally there's an intriguing development but it immediately died out and ended by a total anticlimactic final episode. The fight that I anticipated so much from the beginning t urned out to be so weird not even in a good way. I don't hate this season but it definitely took a downturn from first season.

The good thing is at least the opening song is so good kudos to Yoasobi. Besides that I ...

P.S English is not my primary language.

Quickly review this season.

I was not read manga or another things. Just i was watch the series.

This season very impressive by previously season. Maybe i read manga soon.

Character and story background development is very impressive.

I have to admit, this shit fire. the manga and first season were good but this was super fucking good. the beautifully choreographed fights and smooth animation were huge turn ons. the anime actually made hairless legoshi look good, where in the manga he looked ugly af.


I love the sub plot with Gangster Lois and the search forTem's killer was a thrilling experience. also the training arc wasn't the stereotypical shonen training. It was actually compelling and "deep" if you will.


I would recommend this to anybody who is a fan of drama or to anybody who is a furry.

Beastars is one of those shows with a very confusing setup, so its themes can be interpreted however the hell you want to. If you take the show at face value then it’s going to be some kinkier version of Zootopia, about furries wanting to have bestiality. If you see the show as a big metaphor for social issues, then it can be about people expressing their feeling while keeping control of their sexual urges. Or it can be about discrimination because of a cast system (hello India).

Whichever poison you choose, you have to get over the first snag of the show, which is its ...

AMAZING, 11/10 if I could.

Story: 9/10
At the beginning of season 1 we see a devouring, and rather than have the story be driven by that they focused on the romance between Haru and Legoshi. In season 2 the story is specifically set around the murder and very little of Haru & Legoshi, so if you liked the first season because of the romance, you will not like season 2 as much. We see a lot more from Louis's Riz's pov in season and learn a bit more about their pasts, intention, and motives. We see less psychological stuff, like Legoshi thoughts and such, but ...

This anime is good. Good! Real good.
If there's something wrong.. or so, that's because it has much adult content, that... could've at least been hidden a little bit more. If so, I'd go recommending this to everyone around!

Good parts about it:
1. It's not generic.. typical or predictable at all. Not the main protagonist's personality, not the story, not the developments of the series. nothing at all.

2. With each episode, you get a surprise.. no episode is boring at all. When I started it, I wasn't expecting it to be this good, and kept getting lazy about the episode every week, but when ...

Preliminary (12/12 eps)
Beastars once again carries true with it's amazing characters and story. Having read the manga midway into season one, i can definitively say that the team behind season 2 is doing an excellent job. They aren't only adapting but also improving upon the original in subtle but well appreciated way (mostly through the use of dynamic facial movements).

in my opinion season 2 is a faithful continuation of season 1 and of the source material. if you liked the character dynamics, interwoven story, and drama that Beastars season 1 provided, then you will absolutely enjoy season 2.

That being said viewers should take note ...

Preliminary (11/12 eps)
Beastars Season 2 almost feels like a different show to the first season. Focusing less on the relationship between Legoshi and Haru and more on what goes on behind the shadows in the Beastars world.

Story - 10/10
The Story picks up just after Season 1 ends as we move onto a new arc. In this arc we follow Legoshi's journey to get stronger and to bring a schoolmate hiding a dark secret to justice. At the same time, we follow Louis and his journey following on from the finale of the first season.

This story is much more intriguing than the first season due to the amount ...
