A passing youtube comment saying the final chapter would come out in 5 days… Either I misread somehow or that person was drunk, I don't know.
We're still in the middle of an arc that doesn't feel very final.
Guess I might as well post it here too.
Some of the transitions work so well it's scary…
This song has really spread like wild fire, hasn't it.
Aw, they skipped the chicken egg chapter in episode 6. I liked that one. Though it wasn't really relevant to the overarching plot I guess. Also a pity that the city and the black market are only shown through still frames − were they too hard to animate?

Probably. The black market will probably get more over time, but the city is largely unexplored so it probably wasnt worth devoting resources to in the long run, either.

Oh, they actually put the Legom chapter in this episode before the OP. Uuh, sure why not?
The rest of the episode won't help to shoo away those who call this a "furry anime". The way the music peters out when Legoshi answers to Juno is stupidly perfect.
Nice 2D sequence at the beginning too. Gives us a glimpse of what the series might have looked like if entirely handdrawn.
So, remind me when this was supposed to come to America again?
I think it's April…? 2020, in any case.
When the season is finished, I imagine. That's usually when things get out of Netflux jail.
I hate how Netflix handles anime like this.
I don't know, Carole & Tuesday's second cour only comes out on Christmas, even though the show ended in October.
"...and suddenly a giant whale came out of nowhere and ended all war!"

The full version is out!
Only 2:30 long. TT__TT
What can I say? Zootopia got me into the fandom and Beastars is definitely keeping me there. I love both worlds and franchises (although the former really only has the one movie), but as a future writer of a furry series of novels (which I'm midway done with the first book), watching these amazing pieces of story art - I am a bit worried for my own creation. Would it be too much saturation of the market to introduce something similar yet still different enough to be its own thing? Guess I just need to keep writing and hope for the best, right?
Either way, I am just wrapping up on watching the animation myself, or at least the episodes released as of today. Really enjoying it, even if the dialogue is a bit stilted from my perspective.
Nah. It is worth it. Even if it's just for you. Create to create.

So episode 9 starts the Lion Gang arc. The next couple of eps are gonna be a doozie.
Though I noticed that they left out the scene of Louis threatening Bill with a gun. I wonder why. Usually they just skip incidental slice-of-life bits, but that one seemed pretty important. Maybe they thought that the flashback that followed was enough to establish that he wasn't to be fucked with?
Am I the only one that finds it ironic that the predators are trying to keep Louis from becoming a Beastar when there's already a prey animal that's the Beastar? Like, do they not know that, or...?
Yafya may well be of Diomedes' herd. Dude is scarier than most predators.

Yafya's existence is actually shrouded from the public.
Though he is feared by the preds.

Plus, he eats carnivores by proxy.
@Darkflamewolf I'd say try to make your own themes and cast distinct. Beastars and Zootopia have similar concepts, but their casts and general themes and messages are their own. Although it's worth noting that there's gonna be another animal city anime next year, and by Trigger no less. It's called BNA: Brand New Animal.
I'm pretty sure it's stated that Cherryton hasn't had a Beastar in 5 years…
Ah, so there's multiple ones...I thought it was just like the supreme executive power, not just one for like every city.
According to volume 7 there's one "Junior Beastar" in each prestigious school (except Cherryton at the moment) and then a "Grand Beastar" is elected among them after they graduate. That's as far as I've read though.

The version I read had the term of "Supreme Beastar" around, which Yafya occupies. Maybe it's global, maybe national, maybe per city.

How well does it match the trope?
