Anime TV series 'Beastars' will premiere on March 13, 2020.
At the center of this series is a world that is occupied by anthropomorphic animals wherein the population is split between carnivores and herbivores. The Beastars despite of differing food choices share a strained but conflict-free existence with each other. Most of it has to do with everyone legally adhering to a plant-diet. An animal consuming another animal is the highest degree of crime one could commit in this world. All hell breaks loose when an Alpaca named Tem is killed and consumed. The terrible crime takes place in the dark of the night in a school and Legoshi, a socially clumsy grey wolf knew the Alpaca from the drama club. Legoshi is used to the suspicion that he's invited post the incident and is prepared to wait it out for the phase to blow over. His plans are thrown off-track when he becomes besotted with a white dwarf rabbit called Haru. She is neglected by her peers for her reputation of being someone who sleeps around with other animals. Her rumored lover is Louis, a red deer who's also head of the drama club, and one of the most favored students in school.
