As in the first season, the great animation of beastars never ceases to surprise. Smooth character movements, great facial expressions and captivating camera movements. I have to admit this season attracted me even more than the previous one. Together with Louis and Legosi, we get to know an extensive world full of violence. Anime shows very well the black market in the world of anthropomorphic animals. Organ trade, the cruel fate of herbivores. Legosi trying to overcome their greatest instincts / weaknesses. I especially liked the moth scene in which Legosi begins to really appreciate the importance of other creatures’ lives. He begins to respect them. These moments changed his perception of the world, and it was thanks to this conversation that he was able to finally pass unhindered to the carnivore stage, which can refrain from eating meat.
The fights in this anime are done at a high level. CGI animations as well as camera movements, everything works well together. They are dynamic and addictive. Particularly well-made facial expressions raise the level of these fights.
Greatly shown metamorphosis
Throughout the anime, we observe the slow metamorphosis of the characters Louis, Legosi and Ted. Each of them struggles internally with their emotions to eventually overcome them and come to terms with their past mistakes. It is shown in a masterful way.
And here we come to the last episode of the series. The anime did a great job of building the tension preceding this episode. I must admit that I was waiting impatiently for it myself, but I was a little disappointed. The episode was good, but I think there was something missing, I expected it to evoke some emotions of sadness, etc. The mere fact that Pina wasn’t really eaten by Ted was a bit of a disappointing for me. I wanted to see Legosi going berserk… Overall, this fight wasn’t the best in the anime in my opinion, I’m not saying it was bad, it could just have been better.
The opening and ending of the series are very good. Yoasobi as always did a great job on both songs. Visually, they are also made at the highest level. I especially liked the animation style used in the ending. The soundtrack in this anime was nothing really amazing, but it was good.
The anime showed greatly taboo topics, like the first season. I am a fan of such difficult topics in anime. Questions about the outside world left behind after the first season were well developed. Despite its slightly rushed ending, this season deserves a high rating of 8.5 / 10
