Japanese production company Orange in partnership with Netflix released a new trailer for the upcoming animated series based on the popular manga series, Beastars. The series is a crime-drama themed around a murder-mystery that takes place at an academy, prompting for an investigation into the murder to find out who committed the crime. All of the characters, of course, are anthropomorphic animals, with designs being very similar to those that are popular within the furry community.
The trailer covers the setup for the first murder, where an alpaca is beaten and tracked down to a lecture hall where he’s ultimately murdered, leading to a young wolf to take on the task of trying to figure out what went down at the school.
You can check out the trailer below courtesy of the TOHO Animation channel.
The hook for the show is that at the dormitory the animals are separated by carnivores and herbivores. The murder of the alpaca sets off distrusts of the carnivores from the herbivores, who believe that they are a danger to everyone.
While the murder-mystery unfolds, the wolf struggles with his identity and begins developing a relationship with an outcast rabbit.
Yes, it’s one of those shows fixing to promote inter-species relations.
It’s pretty obvious how this relates to the typical diversity agenda being heavily pushed here in the West by Left-wing propagandists.
Additionally, we all know that degenerates will fall head over heels in love with this show, because unlike other traditional anime, Beastars has character designs more in-line with Western art-styles popular within the furry community rather than the traditional Japanese character designs for anime.
The only thing that might be a turn-off to the furry community is that Orange focuses on the utilization of 3DCG, which still looks jarring and not quite as fluid nor as captivating as traditional hand-drawn animation techniques.
They have eased up on the fill-frames interpolated between key-frames for motion, so sometimes, in some scenes, the characters move as if they’re animated at 6 – 12fps at an 24fps runtime. So as you can see in some of the sequences in the trailer, you might be fooled into thinking that it’s hand drawn, even when it’s not.
The uncanny valley kicks in when the character make turning movements where their body slides through a couple of frames to reach the key target as opposed to snapping, which is common in most other drawn anime.
Still, Arc System Works has really managed to mimic the animation framing with their 3D projects like Dragon Ball FighterZ and Guilty Gear. Orange is getting there but they need to work on that uncanny element that comes with those fill-frames. Less filling, more keys.
Anyway, I’m sure the furry community on Twitter is going to go wild over this show, but hopefully Japan doesn’t see it as a way to keep producing content that sates the desires of the Left. Japan is the last bastion of creative freedom and we can’t lose it to lunatics.
Beastars is due to air on +Ultra on Japanese television and it will be streaming exclusively on Netflix. The show is set to make its debut in Japan this October.
