Shinichi Matsumi (assistant director for Pom Poko, Porco Rosso; episode director for Rurouni Kenshin, Rage of Bahamut Genesis) is directing the anime at CG anime Studio Orange (Land of the Lustrous, Dimension W). Nanami Higuchi (Little Witch Academia, Ninja Slayer From Animation) is writing the scripts, Nao Ootsu (firearm design for Saga of Tanya the Evil, sub-character designer for Banana Fish) is designing the characters, Eiji Inomoto (Kan Colle, Ghost in the Shell Arise) is the CG chief director, and Satoru Kousaki (Wake Up, Girls!, Oreimo both seasons, Monogatari Series Second Season) is composing the music.

Other staff members include Minami Kasuga as art director, Ken Hashimoto as color designer, Shiori Furusho as director of photography, and Junichi Uematsu as editor.

The anime will air on 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. Viz Media has licensed the series for North America.
