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

Paru Itagaki's art drastically improves in the middle of the manga, along with her incredible storytelling skills (can't stress this enough), you'll definitely miss details if you're not deeply observing the visuals

I mean that Beast Complex makes for a perfect companion/predecessor in that it both expands upon this universe and feeds readers' understanding of what Paru Itagaki aims to achieve with her unconventional, "adult-Zootopia" premise.

After reading the first volume of Beast Complex, I understand that Itagaki's writing's strength is character (besides her already excellent creative compositions and worldbuilding). She has ...
