The "Fuji TV Anime Lineup Press Conference 2019" event on Thursday announced that the television anime adaptation of Paru Itagaki's BEASTARS manga will premiere on Fuji TV's [+Ultra] programming block in October. The anime will also stream exclusively on Netflix.
TOHO Animation is also streaming a new promotional video for the anime.
CG anime studio Orange (Land of the Lustrous, Dimension W) will produce the anime.
The manga takes place in a world of carnivores and herbivores, where there is a lot of hope, love, and anxiety. Regoshi is a wolf who is a member of Cherryton Academy's drama club, and even though he's a wolf, he's very sensitive. The manga follows the adolescent life of Regoshi and many other animals.
Itagaki launched the Beastars manga in Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine in September 2016. Akita Shoten published the 12th volume on February 8. Viz Media has licensed the series for North America.
The manga won the 11th Manga Taisho awards in March 2018. The series also won a New Face Award at the 21st Japan Media Arts Festival Awards in March 2018, and Itagaki received the New Creator Prize for the manga at the 22nd Annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize awards in April. The manga then won the Best Shōnen Manga award at Kodansha's 42nd annual Manga Awards in May. The series also ranked at #2 on the Kono Manga ga Sugoi! male readers list in December 2017.
