Criticism of human society through world of anthropomorhised animals, with multiple subplots of side characters connecting through the protagonist, and crime mystery thrown in the mix.

i had the same strongest 'dostoevsky' vibe: while 'trigun' is concentrated on the idea of the pricelessness of each life, this season is supersensitive-flavoured; it's like you 16 again, and you ask yourself a bunch of different questions about life as a whole

*Beastars 1st Season* as well. They're both similar to Zootopia but have interesting concepts. BNA is between humans and beasts (BNAs), while Beastars is between herbivores and carnivores.

Concept of society of non-humans is used to portray a mirror for our society, and even though it is slice of life, sometimes the series takes a darker turn, though much more often in case of Beastars.

Both anime focus on clashing ideologies, characters duking it out over a disagreement about what is righ as the plot creates situations that are allegories making a social commentary about our society.

Both of these anime portray the troubles with interpecies relationship in a world of anthropomorphized animals.
