This year's 16th issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine revealed on March 18 that Paru Itagaki's new mini-series manga for her Beast Complex manga will end in the magazine's next issue on Thursday.

In addition, Amazon is listing a second and third volume of the manga that will ship on April 8 and May 7, respectively.

Viz Media licensed the original Beast Complex manga, and it describes the story:

A tiger and a beaver who grew up together defy peer pressure to end their friendship and join forces to fight injustice. A camel journalist who spent his career passing judgment on carnivores spends a life-changing night with a seductive wolf. A saltwater crocodile and a gazelle must find a way to work together as chef and assistant on a cooking show with flagging ratings. A fox and a chameleon wrestle with stereotypes about each other—and themselves. And much more…

Itagaki published the Beast Complex manga in Weekly Shōnen Champion in 2016. Akita Shoten released one volume for the manga. Viz Media released the volume in English on March 16. The new manga mini-series launched in January.
