The tenth issue of this year's Shounen Champion magazine announced a TV anime adaptation each for Paru Itagaki's Beastars and Osamu Nishi's Mairimashita! Iruma-kun manga series on Thursday. The Beastars anime adaptation will be produced by animation studio Orange. The anime projects are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the magazine.

Synopsis (Beastars)
In a world populated by anthropomorphic animals, herbivores and carnivores coexist with each other. For the adolescents of Cherryton Academy, school life is filled with hope, romance, distrust, and uneasiness.

The main character is Regoshi the wolf, a member of the drama club. Despite his menacing appearance, he has a very gentle heart. Throughout most of his life, he has always been an object of fear and hatred by other animals, and he's been quite accustomed to that lifestyle. But soon, he finds himself becoming more involved with his fellow classmates who have their own share of insecurities and finds his life in school changing slowly. (Source: Batoto, edited)

Itagaki began serializing the psychological drama manga in Shounen Champion in September 2016, which has 11 volumes in print as of last November. Akita Shoten will publish the 12th compiled volume on Friday. VIZ Media licensed the manga in English and plans to release the first volume this July.

Beastars ranked second in the 2018 edition of Kono Manga ga Sugoi! among male readers, won the 11th Manga Taisho Awards and the 42nd Kodansha Manga Awards in the Shounen category, and received the New Work Prize at the 22nd Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize, as well as a New Face Award at the 21st Japan Media Arts Festival Awards.

Synopsis (Mairimashita! Iruma-kun)
Suzuki Iruma has been abandoned and sold to a demon by his irresponsible parents! Next thing he knows, he's living with the demon who has adopted him as his new grandson, and has been transferred into a school in the demon world where his new "demon" grandfather works as the principal. Thus begins the cowardly Iruma-kun's extraordinary school life among the otherworldly as he faces his true self, takes on challenges, and rises to become someone great. (Source: MU, edited)

The comedy fantasy manga has been serialized in Shounen Champion since March 2017. Akita Shoten published the eighth volume on November 8 last year, with the ninth volume planned for release on February 8.

Even if they did great with Houseki no Kuni, i wasn't sure about Orange doing Beastars but from the look of the teaser, seems like its in good hands.

Beastars looks really proimising imo, never heard of the manga, but by reading that synopsis and watching the pv, i'm really intrigued now! CG looks solid as well!

Mairimashita Iruma-kun seems like a chill comedy series involving demons and slice of life elements, yeah, why not? "Suzuki Iruma has been abandoned and sold to a demon by his irresponsible parents!" - this line, lmao x)

Looking forward to both of these.

Looking forward to both of these adaptions! Studio Orange is one I haven’t heard of, but hopefully they’ll deliver the goods!

Particularly interested in Beastars but I’ll keep an eye on the other too. Beastars synopsis is really interesting too, highly looking forward to this!

I was really skeptical when I heard that Beastars was getting an adaptation, but after seeing it'll be done by Orange, I'm actually kinda relieved

When I think about the mental age of many anime fans and one defining behavior of one important character, we will get quite the shit fest with many hate posts.


I already feel sorry in advance.


They should give a warning : it's more for open-minded, tolerant adults than for kids.

Good for the fans but for me they are really uninteresting. A shame that we don't get a second season of Houseki no Kuni instead of this.

Of course. If you read part of the manga, you should know why many teenagers or some intolerant young adults will hate one particularly nice character. Best not to spoil about it but it is as obvious as an elephant in the room.

That Beastars will be animated eventually was only a matter of time after all these awards. The choice for Orange and thus CGI seems to work pretty well, at least in this short teaser.

Oh man I love the manga & with how far along it is, there are several perfect end points for the show.

Cmon Orange make another home-run.

Also please don't let Amazon take the rights to this show too.

Not too sure on that CGI for Beastars. It worked for Houseki no Kuni, but I'm a bit sceptical here.

Never read the manga, but am I right to assume, that this is basically furry JoJo?

Nevertheless, I am looking forward to studio Orange's work on this one.

It's basically zootopia not hiding how dark it would be in reality if there's an an advance society of animals.

We can only hope a majority of okay-ish people will pick BEASTARS up and the brats and manchildren stay in their own lane with their harems and their blank-slate virgin otaku protagonists.

you are welcome. and yeah, this is not your typical series. it's psychological drama heavy.
