Beastars Season 3: The Story So Far & Premise Up Ahead
Let’s see what happened in Seasons 1 & 2 and brush up our memory with the plot line.
Beastars is an anime based on the hit manga by Paru Itagkai. It is a place where prey animals are in constant danger from carnivores, due to which there is a divide in culture.
Legoshi, our main hero, is a gray wolf who likes to live away from the limelight. He meets Haru, a dwarf rabbit, and they both start liking each other.
The tension between the two cultures, herbivorous and carnivorous animals, rises when Tem the alpaca gets brutally murdered one night.
Now, Legoshi is in a dilemma, as he needs to find the culprit behind Tem’s murder and also express feelings towards Haru.
Season 2 had a thrilling end with a great reveal of the culprit behind Tem’s murder. It was quite the shocker and at least I didn’t see it coming.
Now, for season 3, fans can expect a fight between Legoshi and Riz. Legoshi who has been living a simple life has to turn on his predator nature. All in all, a thrilling and exciting season 3 is on the way, and if you are hyped, you should be.
