The 43rd issue of Shounen Champion revealed on Thursday that Paru Itagaki's Beastars manga is ending in three chapters. The 45th issue will publish the final chapter on October 8.

Synopsis
In a world populated by anthropomorphic animals, there exists a bias: carnivores are just mindless predators in the eyes of many herbivores. However, when an alpaca named Tem is murdered within the walls of Cherryton High School, the fear toward carnivores skyrockets to an all-time high.

Legoshi, a student at this school, is a gray wolf who is quite awkward despite his fearsome appearance. When turmoil affects his school life, he is forced to confront the divide between herbivores and carnivores, as well as his own place in this society. This is further complicated by his supposedly romantic feelings toward a herbivore, which might not be what they seem.

Beastars details Legoshi's struggles against his inner demons while living in a society that is unforgiving toward his kind. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Itagaki began serializing the psychological drama manga in Shounen Champion in September 2016. Akita Shoten published the 20th volume on August 6 (pictured right), with the 21th volume scheduled for release on October 8.

A 12-episode television anime adaptation by animation studio Orange premiered in Fall 2019, with a second season scheduled to air in Winter 2021. Netflix streamed the first season, and outside of Japan on March 13.

VIZ Media licensed the manga in English in November 2018 and began publishing it last July. The ninth volume will go on sale on November 17.

Beastars won the 11th Manga Taisho Award, 22nd Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize, 21st Japan Media Arts Festival Award, and 42nd Kodansha Manga Award. The manga also placed second in the 2018 Kono Manga ga Sugoi! rankings.

It is already ending huh? Unexpected, but then again, the series did get an anime adaptation already late in its release so... hopefully will have a memorable ending.

It's about the feelings. I know if there's something I won't enjoy.

You can keep convincing yourself of that, and you will keep missing out on things that you could actually love.

I already think you need to watch more than 3 episodes for most series to at least be able to truly tell you will like it or not for some cases... for this, you didn't even finish the first episode, there could have been something that would have clicked with you the 15 minutes you missed out at, you can't predict things like that, especially for this series which is very unpredictable.


The one whom you were conversating with is not someone you can logically reason with. I advise you to not waste your time with that person.

Wish it didn't lose its shine but then again, most manga like these lose thejr shine after initial impressions of promise. Still not bad by any means, but it could have been so much better too.

I barely watched the first 5 minutes of the anime before dropping it. It was pretty bad.

Happy for the fans though.

Lmao yeah that's why it has 8+ of rating on this site, excellent reviews on other sites, it being one of the most popular animes on Netflix currently + announcing a 2nd season as soon as it finished airing its 12th episode: because its bad. I'm sure with all that this show already achieved more than the shows you actually consider to be "good". There's a difference between you not liking it and it being actually bad, with the ratings and its success proving otherwise.
Also judging something for just watching 5 minutes of its laughable. But looking at the image in your profile and seeing the kind of generic loli type of anime characters you enjoy, I guess this unique show was too much for your shallow tastes lol. No need to reply, I won't waste my time reading it.

My Prêt à Boire Rosé is a smidgen richer with this news. It's unusual that a subpar series lingers on my mind, but I can say without exaggeration that I've lost sleep over Beastars and my compunctions for its deranged brand of "world-building". There's something deeply wrong when your dislike for a property is strong enough to co-exist with your grief over Ruth Bader Ginsburg's passing. (rest in power to the biggest Gryffindor there ever was).

I look forward to Beastars taking its place in the dustbin of anime/manga history.

5 minutes is enough for me to tell the deal. Also, the 3-episode rule is dumb.

I remember picking up the manga back in winter of last year due to the anime pushing me to read it and what a wild ride this series threw me into. Especially with its deep character and excellent world-building and just many more things I can go on about but by the end of it all. I’m looking forward to seeing how this will wrap up what a great series.
