Here’s another sweet news for anime fans, the Weekly Shonen Champion by Akita Shoten has announced another anime adaptation and to be very honest it is very very interesting and to look forward to. The manga this time which will be getting an anime adaptation is BEASTARS by Paru Itagaki.
BEASTARS Anime Adaptation Announced!
Just recently the magazine announced anime adaptation of Mairimashita! Iruma-kun and seems like the magazine had another news for us in the store. If nothing the manga synopsis is very interesting,
“In a world populated by anthropomorphic animals, herbivores and carnivores coexist with each other. For the adolescences of Cherryton Academy, school life is filled with hope, romance, distrust, and uneasiness.
The main character is Legoshi the wolf, a member of the drama club. Despite his menacing appearance, he has a very gentle heart. Throughout most of his life, he has always been an object of fear and hatred by other animals, and he’s been quite accustomed to that lifestyle. But soon, he finds himself becoming more involved with his fellow classmates who have their own share of insecurities and finds his life in school changing slowly.”
Have you watched Zootopia? The manga is like Zootopia but with darker settings and mature themes. If pulled right by a good direction we will be seeing a very good anime series which most of the anime community will like. Unlike other series, this will be very hard to pull and we don’t know when we will be able to watch the show but nonetheless it is worth looking forward to. You might be wondering how will this be an interesting series with nothing but animals. Well to your surprise the series has won multiple awards, including being the first Akita Shoten title to take home the Manga Taishō Award. In the end all we have to do is wait for the premiere.]
