Critic Reviews for Beastars Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (0)

"Beastars" is one of the most impressive anime we have seen during the latest years, as it highlights its contextual and technical prowess in the most eloquent way.

Sep 27, 2020 | Full Review…

Beastars maintains the gorgeous hand-drawn look of anime while adding in some extra flourishes.

Apr 6, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Most of it feels thrown at you for shock value.

Apr 2, 2020 | Full Review…

It was well done and well-conceived and I, for better or for worse, am invested.

Apr 2, 2020 | Full Review…

I'm constantly amazed at the quality and content of new anime each year, and Beastars excels in both.

Apr 2, 2020 | Full Review…

Easily the best part about Beastars is the detail Itagaki puts into the world. Carnivores can't have meat, since that would be eating the flesh of their allies. They can, however, eat eggs to get their protein.

Mar 20, 2020 | Full Review…

Luminous and enchanting, this series takes anime world-building to new, noirish heights -- and it's definitely not for kids, revolving as it does around barely leashed lusts both sexual and sensory.

Mar 20, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Beastars is a refreshing change-up to more predictable and familiar anime series; it's also one of the year's best that will be hard to top from here on out.

Mar 20, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

That compelling zaniness is an area that Beastars could have afforded to lean into more, and it wouldn't have undermined the drama building over the season.

Mar 20, 2020 | Full Review…

Beastars takes the traditional horny high school anime and adds emotional weight and commentary while also loading it full of furry fanservice.

Mar 17, 2020 | Rating: 8.5 | Full Review…

Beastars compellingly tangles some of the mundanities of human high school life (Oh no! Drama in drama club!) with some weird world-building within an anthropomorphic reality.

    This is the first anthropomorphic anime I've watched apart from the cartoon Bojack Horseman. Although the underlying theme of the struggles between prey vs predator was nothing new, the way that this series draws out emotions coupled with spotless animation was enough to lure me in. Some may think of this as another furry anime with fan service, but it's so much more than that.
  • Jun 08, 2020
    I went into this show expecting to have a decent time watching it over a couple of weeks to get through quarantine, and I very quickly realized that there was more to this show than I thought. I binged it all that night, and after realizing that I couldn't stop thinking about it I binged it a second time the next day. I enjoy many types of media, but very rarely does something grab my attention as much as this show did. I'm currently on my fifth watch through and plan on watching it many more times. I read the entire manga in one sitting despite never reading manga before, it's just that good. I do have some issues with the dub, mainly through the performances of minor characters; but the writing is top-notch, the animation is gorgeous, the vocal performances from the leads are gut-wrenching, the original score is up there as one of my favorites in any film or television show, this show is just amazing. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes good content.

    I love this series! It has a beautiful world crafted depicting a world where predators and prey live in co existence and through this we see allegories for modern day discrimination. It is well worth a watch!
  • May 09, 2020
    Truly a good show. Would 100% recommend it.
  • May 08, 2020
    A shining star example of 3D anime done right, with a compelling and enthralling story to tell. I beg you to watch with the original Japanese voice artists, whose acting is truly something to behold. You can really tell that this show is a labour of love.
  • May 07, 2020
    brilliantly and creatively done on the conflicts of emotions combining with lighthearted humor, it's a masterpiece.
  • Apr 29, 2020
    It was absolutely incredible, with intertwined stories and backgrounds all mixed up coming together in a civilized anthropomorphic carnivore/herbivore world where they are coexisting. Also, the 3D CGI Animation was amazing. It brought out all the emotions and expressions of all the characters. I can't wait to see what more Beastars has to offer.

    Beastars is one of the greatest shows I've ever watched, and I hate anime and furries. Its characters and story compel you to watch it non-stop I ended up staying up all night watching it.
