New Beastars Visual Shows Off Main Cast

New Beastars Visual Shows Off Main CastBeastars, the CG anime based on the manga by Paru Itagaki, is headed to screens this October.

Now we’ve got a fresh look at the series thanks to a new main visual. Behold the Beastars!

At its center, the visual features main character Legosi. Characters revealed for the first time in their anime form are red deer Louis, gray wolf Juno, Labrador Retriever Jack and giant panda Gouhin.

The anime adaptation of Beastars is directed by Shinichi Matsumi (Land of the Lustrous episode director) at studio Orange (Land of the Lustrous) with scripts by Nanami Higuchi (Little Witch Academia).

Viz Media is releasing the Beastars manga in English, with the first volume due July 16. Here’s how they describe it:

At a high school where the students are literally divided into predators and prey, it’s personal relationships that maintain the fragile peace. Who among them is a Beastar—an academic and social role model destined to become a leader in a society naturally rife with mistrust?

Last night at Cherryton Academy, an herbivore student was killed and eaten. Among the members of the drama club, the herbivores’ suspicions naturally turn to their carnivore classmates… The prime suspect? Legosi, a large wolf. But he wouldn’t hurt a fly—or would he? And will dwarf rabbit Haru bring out the beast in him? Or are his feelings for her…something else?
