Land of the Lustrous' Orange animates adaptation of award-winning manga

An official website launched on Thursday to confirm the television anime adaptation of Paru Itagaki's BEASTARS manga. CG anime studio Orange (Land of the Lustrous, Dimension W) will produce the anime. The website began streaming the anime's first promotional video.

This year's 10th issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine also announced the adaptation on Thursday.

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 11th compiled book volume on November 8 and will publish the 12th volume on Friday. 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.
