Beastars remains one of the weirdest plots I’ve ever read, and I adore it.
The rabbit Kyu, who is absolutely terrifying and intimidating as hell, calls out Legoshi on his gender bias, all while threatening him. She hasn’t had the same life experience as Legoshi, so they have different ideas regarding what males and females are capable of. Through their discussion, he learns that Goshin, his trainer, is also hers and that she is low-key in love with him, though she refuses to acknowledge it.
Melon, everyone’s favorite psychopath, is still at large and tells the story of his first murder. It is very messed up. We also learn that he is going to eat Haru, Legoshi’s on and off girlfriend; after she admits to Louis, she tells him it was ok to eat her. Louis remains the best character in this series, and Haru remains the most annoying, at least in my eyes. Louis has such an interesting character arc; I would read an entire series just about his life.
Melon and Legoshi have decided to have an official show-down in the Black Market to decide supremacy as Legoshi wants to defeat him publicly. Legoshi is dumb but awesome, so we can forgive it.
I cannot believe this series is so close to coming to an end!!! I’m so terrified yet excited.
