Rabbit rabbit: Beastars

tv series, season 2 (11 episodes)
based on manga by: Paru Itagaki
-Animation, Drama, Fantasy, Japanese | Goodreads | imdb | my rating: 5

The story takes place in a world of modern, civilized, anthropomorphic animals with a cultural divide between the carnivores and herbivores. The series takes its name from the in-universe rank of Beastar, an individual of great talent, service, and notoriety. Legoshi, a large gray wolf, is a timid and quiet student of Cherryton Academy where he lives in a dorm with several other carnivorous students including his outgoing Labrador friend, Jack. As a member of the school's drama club, Legoshi works as a stagehand and supports the actors of the club headed by the star pupil Louis, a red deer. Out of nowhere, Tem the alpaca is brutally murdered and devoured in the night setting a wave of unease and distrust between the herbivore and carnivore students. At the same time, Legoshi has a fateful encounter with Haru, a small dwarf rabbit, and begins developing complex feelings for her.

My two-bits:
After watching the first 7 episodes, I am hooked.

Mind bending thoughts of diversity, bullying, love, etc. are tackled.

Loving the relationship development between the wolf and rabbit.
