Beastars Is Now On Netflix

The 3DCG anime Beastars is now available on Netflix globally, after first launching on Netflix Japan last October.

Produced by Studio Orange and based on a manga by Paru Itagaki, Beastars is set in a world of anthropomorphic animals. The synopsis, as described in the first volume of the manga (via Viz), is fascinating to say the least:

“One night at Cherryton Academy, an herbivore student is brutally murdered. Among the members of the Drama Club, the herbivores’ suspicions naturally turn to their carnivore classmates… The prime suspect? Gray wolf Legoshi. But he wouldn’t hurt a fly. Or would he?

Will dwarf rabbit Haru bring out the beast in him? Or are his feelings for her…something else?”

Even the opening is special:

The first time I saw Beastars and its cast of 3DCG anthropomorphic animals, my first thought was, “Nope.” I was less bothered by the 3DCG itself though, since Studio Orange did an impressive job with 2017’s fantastic Land of the Lustrous, and seem to have done the same with Beastars.

After all these months though, I’ve stopped thinking “but I’m not a furry” and have come to acknowledge that Beastars does seem like a legitimately interesting watch, after watching snippets of the show via YouTube. It’s got a pretty good score on MyAnimeList too.

Still, the fact that the show involves anthropomorphic animals hasn’t gone unnoticed by whoever’s running Netflix’s NX Twitter page.
