OH MY !!

Juno scene had me off guard, didn't expect that to happen !!

Also, I had chills and goosebumps when the light went off, I doubt that the author did it just for the sole purpose of Haru mistaking Legoushi by Louis. I think that there's something worse will happen. And Rip our boi Legoshi's heart.

I'm kinda afraid that Juno's greed/jealousy turn her from a good person to a yandere/an enemy. I like her motifs so far but I suspect that she'll play it good from now on. Especially with Haru.

Juno said, "Women don't love violence". But when it's related to their love, I'm pretty sure that Juno will be aggressive and offensive with Haru.

and she is well aware of her visual charm and is using it to integrate into the club. All humans have multiple faces. You may not realize it, but everyday you're "acting" out a certain side of you. No one is all cute nice innocent or dark and evil. Same with all the characters in BEASTARS, including Juno.

Not sure why you're telling me all this stuff I already know, especially since I didn't say anything pointing to the contrary...
cause you don't think she was acting cute on purpose and was genuinely curious instead of calculated

True its secretive, but it really doesn't seem that louis cares. I also assumed that since she's not liked by other rabbits, she's probably sleeping with a couple other animals. I thought that Louis was the only one she liked out of them all, or something along those lines.


Louis not caring that he's having a sexual relationship with Haru or that he doesn't care whether the relationship stays secret or becomes public? Yea, he doesn't mind spending time with Haru romantically, but in the long run he doesn't want their relationship to last because he is engaged to his own kind and he doesn't love her the way that Legosi does.

Haru sleeping with other animals is no secret either; it's been mentioned several times, including the first episode when she meets Legosi in the garden club room. Louis is the one she cares about genuinely. Her sleeping with other animals doesn't mean she loves them - they are just her means of escape. Louis is one of the few animals who understands her and vice versa.

Great episode again.

Ahhhhh my boy Legosi and that big heart of his :( It's a shame that they didn't animate the scene between Louis and Bill from the manga.. could imagine how good it would have been animated + the impact - damn. Hopefully they can fit that in somehow in a future episode. Also it's a bit late but wow the seiyuus really match with each character huh. I'm actual so happy.

Solid catch mate.

Also, the gun shown in the manga just looks out of place in this world.

It's a shame "that" scene of Louis and Bill wasn't included on this episode. It would have given Juno's scene much more depth and seriousness than it already had.

Also, that "being eaten by you might not be so bad, you know" bit


After Haru's name confusion, things could have prosperous to the Jungoshi ship, but no...

Also, according to my hypothesis, they should have played "Sleeping Instinct" this time, as this episode was as tense as the previous one.

When Juno first appeared she seemed to be weak hearted or something. She was really affected by those bullies, but I guess she was just having a bad day because it can't be pleasant to start your new school life like that. But she is strong! She seems to draw people, and in a different way from Louis-senpai too. She is going to try and defeat him for the "Beastar" title as well. I didn't see that scene with her dominating him like that coming at all! Louis-senpai seems to have had a traumatic experience too, and he was reminded of it when Bill scratched him. He and Legoshi are kind of in bad terms over Haru too. And talking about her, she really is a good girl, and I love the dynamic so far between her and Legoshi. It manages to be funny, awkward, and even heartfelt at the same time.

He also almost told her that he was the one who attacked her on that night, but he couldn't bring himself to do it because she mentioned it first. Well, they are getting closer in a way or another for sure, but Louis-senpai was still the one who Haru was hoping would come to save her during that blackout. What is understandable since they met way before she met Legoshi, but I'm sure it still hurt him. And I guess Juno felt hurt too when she saw Legoshi with Haru like that. But I do wonder if she really likes him already, or if he is another, let's say, "prize" she is striving for. Time will tell, and it seems that she is going to get closer to Louis-senpai too. I mean, she declared war. xD

Every episode I love this show even more. Honestly, I'm terrified that Legosi is gonna snap at any moment. The way they animate him is brilliant. Other than that, I love all the characters. Except Juno, fuck that bitch.

A male red deer weighs nearly 3 times what a female grey wolf does. Yet I'm supposed to believe a red deer can't overpower a grey wolf? Yeah no this is beyond dumb.

The writer should've actually researched the animals. That way we wouldn't have this backwards view that herbivores are completely defenseless against carnivores. It's anything but accurate.
Otherwise this society makes no sense. Why did they coexist if carnivores are that superior? The truth is because they aren't. There are many herbivores who could put up a fighting chance. Some herbivores like an adult elephant are practically untouchable.

I like the characters, and its an interesting concept, but the world building is plain terrible. If a female grey wolf despite weighing a third of what a red deer does can overpower a red deer this society makes no sense.

I'm sorry, but are you dumb? In the anime you can clearly see that they both share a similar body type. Plus, in the position that they we're in(on the floor), even a normal person would have a hard time resisting. And another thing, in the show so far every animal that was killed was easy pray, no elephant or other large herbivore has been attacked or killed.

The anime is drawing from real life biology but trying to portray it in a fictional animal world. Yet for reasons which make no sense it portrays the complicated relationship between carnivore and herbivore into a simplified black and white view. A red deer weighs over 400lb. Far from a small mammal. A grey wolf weighs around 80lb. Yet somehow we're supposed to believe that a grey wolf is nearly the same size as a red deer? How dumb do you have to be to not see it makes no sense to give a grey wolf a similar body type to a red deer?

So how did this world come about then? If a grey wolf is nearly the same size as a red deer why did this society form when carnivores are far more superior? It makes no sense why carnivores would allow themselves into such a society where their desires and instinct are blocked.

Well! The wolf girl certainly turned out to be more assertive than initially thought, that was a surprise. The blackout part was tense, it was spooky indeed.

I'm sorry for reacting that way, it's just that I love this series to bits and hearing you write "the world building is plain terrible" put me over the edge a bit. I'm truly sorry and hope you can forgive me. And I also see your points and respect them.

From what i've heard, I'm really excited about the next episode.

A love triangle. I wonder how it'll work out? we might see Juno get territorial and try to confront Haru.

We are humans, not fish.
We don't know what kind of people we truly are until the moment before our deaths.
As death comes to embrace you, you will realise what you are.
That's what death is, don't you think?

This universe has its own rules. An eagle is the same size with wolfs and tigers, a hen has the same constitution as a wolf etc etc. This world even has

So, don't be a perisher. It doesn't matter how much wolves and deer weigh in our world. Animals in Beastars are not actual animals, they are creatures with human carcass and human arms and legs. They were made like this intentionally, looking approximately equal in size to look more human.
You ask how did this society come about? I guess carnivores were suppressed by force. Weapons exist in this world. Guns, too. Probably there was some war before

In this world, louis is 53kg, juno is 51kg. And its rude to ask a girl about her weight. Lol.

World building in this world is done in subtle ways or with chapters dedicated to them which is something that will be touched upon as time goes on. Asking how this world came about is pretty much saying lets skip all the 150+ chapters of the manga.

Also, they are not taking real life biology, cuz then louis should have hooves and not hands and feet. They are taking traits, characteristics and sometimes, physical attributes.

Another fantastic episode. I usually dislike love triangles... well, "love chain" at this point, but I find this one rather interesting to watch for some reason. This said, let's see how this whole situation unfolds.

On the other hand, Juno acting cute sure is nice but seeing her confident/ambitious side is way better. Glad she will have more characterization rather than remaining as the usual one-dimensional love rival.

On a side note,

that might not be the mayor 😬
Also how is it out of place? They are in the modern era. They have chess, cars, games, porno, ads, phones, so why is having guns so weird??

not only that, your body weight isn't proportional to your strength. Plus, you will see later on that BEASTARS isn't depicting herbivores as all defenseless. There will be characters, villains even, later on who're herbivores and can easily KO a carnivore. It's all about physical training. Remember this is an anthropomorphic world. Gym exists.
