warning: (kind of?) spoilers for non manga readers

i've heard that season 1 will be 12 episodes long, but i can't find a reliable source, is this true?

the fact that juno has been shown in the trailers worries me, i doubt they'd introduce the character and not arrive to her dance in the end of the meteor festival arc

but that would mean they would also have to show the shishigumi, and i think a 12 episode series is NOT enough for that

any thoughts on this?

There's no other choice than that, there's another anime taking his timeslot this Winter 2020 (Kuutei Dragons)

My early guess is that they'll adapt the books with 2 episodes each. Which means we'll be at the end of the 6th book or somewhere around. I haven't read up until that point but it is clear they'll adapt the shishigumi arc since they announced a cast for the mayor.

Yes, it is a fast adaptation to say the least, not that it can't work here since there's fluff around the side cast they could just ignore and keep it as manga exclusive or ... OVAs !

i actually noticed there's a few things they have skipped over already, that seems like the best way to go around it imo

It's a studio Orange 3DCG show. It should be 12 episodes since they go hard on their CG shows.

I have a feeling they might rush it. Episode 1 already covers chapters 1-3, changing lots of dialogues and scenes. It didn't turn out so bad, and I can only hope the rest will be just as well adapted. If they end the 1st season at the end of the meteor festival, that'd be chapter 47. They'd have to adapt like 4 chapters per episode. Sounds a bit risky...

24-25 I guess
12 is too little and 25+ is too much for a pretty new series(manga also started only 3 years ago so)

I'm not sure, usually when Netflix hosts an Anime, how long is it? I remember Baki being long, around 20+ episodes. I'm not sure if they'll grant Itagaki Paru the same pleasure since her manga is a bestseller, won awards and she's the daughter of Itagaki Keisuke.
There is no such thing as an Anime elitist. You watch Anime, therefore, you are trash by society's standards.

So, does anyone have some info about it?7 episodes were released and there is no confirmation about 12/13 yet.Does it mean that there will be more that 12-13 episodes in this season?

At best, a split cour but I can see this be a 1-cour instead with the timeslot. We'll have to see.

Well i heard a lot that season 2 is coming, sooooooo i think it might only get 12/13 for season 1
Do you have a source ?

Anyway, a 2nd season wouldn't be much of a surprise since unlike Land of the Lustrous , the manga still has more than a hundred chapters to be adapted from into anime.

At least, getting a conclusion to the first plot point presented which is Team's murder would be nice.

Also, the pace got way better than I thought it would at first, they even included Legom's story lol. Orange successfully done the tradition !

I am praying to god that with the pacing so far, 24 episodes. I mean I wouldn't be surprised, Beastars was super popular in Japan before the anime so it wouldn't be risky at all for a 24 episode adaptation of Beastars

i hope it's either around 24 eps or has a second season, otherwise it'd be weird they started with a murder mystery but that isn't even solved at the end

It's episode 7 and if we translate it into manga, it's 28 chapter, the very start of volume 4 and they start talking about Tem's death again in chapter 53, start of volume 7.
So there are 2 options for animators:
1)Season contains 12-13 episodes and ends before continuation of investigation.
2)It contains 24-25 episodes and captures the entire investigation arc.
Well, there's actually a 3rd option(animators "compress" the manga and somehow manage to show everything in 12-13 episodes), but it will completely ruin the pacing and narration, so I doubt Orange'll do it.

24-25 would be perfect, because ending anime right in the end of investigation arc would be the best logical and narrative conclusion (IMO)

Wonder if he read the dragon part and thought it would be another Kobayashi ...

Anywoo, I've calculated the way the pacing of the anime is going and ....

They probably won't finish the Festival arc at this rate since after looking through the books and making some educated guess as to how they'd need to structure the next episodes, they might end up on the ending of the fifth volume which ends on a litteral cliffhanger lol.

"What about cutting stuff to fit the adaptation ?"

Yes, but no. Every upcoming chapters are too important to get litteraly cut from the scenario, they can obviously ignore some small talk and what not but the litteral pacing would fall apart if they tried to cut something too big.

Really hope they have a 2nd season announcement prepared at the end cuz people could feel cheated by it's conclusion.
Or they just butch the last portion of the season by skipping a LOT of stuff.
I have faith in Orange though, everything will work ! ... Somehow.

Netflix said that Beastars will be one of the first things they'll put online in January. They didn't mention "first cour", so most likely it'll be a single cour, at least for now.

I guess they'll end it with the Shishigumi arc. Too bad, that's exactly when Beastars starts to becoming really great.

So the anime adaptation seems more fast-paced than I thought. I'm still just a manga reader.

12 episodes and ends first season where chapter 47 of the manga left off. Pretty good in my opinion since they at least concluded one arc.

and its not even going to be split-cour now since Spring 2020 the new Trigger anime (Brand New Animal, BNA) is going to take Kuutei Dragon's place in the +Ultra block.

What does that mean exactly? its not going to get a second season? sorry, I don't know much about this "cours" subject.

A 1 cour vs 2 cour vs etc is basically just how many seasons in a row it's going to run for. Since it's only going to be fall season it's 1 cour. A split cour would be a 2 (or more I guess) cour show with a quick break.

BD also lists it as 12 episodes so it's 1 cour
