The anime will Fuji TV's [+Ultra] programming block in October, and will stream exclusively on Netflix.

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.
