Preliminary (6/? chp)
Beast Complex is the debut manga of Paru Itagaki, who would later go on to write the hit series Beastars. The stories of Beast Complex take place in a world where herbivore and carnivore animals live together in society. The stories found in Beast Complex explore the challenges faced in a world where these two different types of species coexist.

Amazing short stories, all sharing the common theme of a carnivore and a herbivore co-existing in the same society (with a few exceptions) with (if I remember correctly) 2 Beastars spin-offs

Very enjoyable read that made me laugh multiple times, and manga rarely if ever makes me laugh

It's great for what it is, all I could ask for are more chapters but I doubt we'll have more any time soon seeing that Sanda is coming ...
