Beastars Episode 2 ((EXCLUSIVE))

Legoshi awakens from a slumber in episode 2 of Beastars to find himself in bed and dragged out by his classmates who suspect something amiss with him. Given what he went through the night before, Legoshi starts to fantasize about eating Haru. We then jump back to that night as a figure in the distance eggs him on to give in to his animalistic tendencies. He refuses to do so though and uses his mental willpower to stop, as this shadow menacingly tells him to taste her.

Beastars Episode 2

In the 10th issue of 2019 of Weekly Shōnen Champion, it was announced that Beastars would get an anime television series adaptation[1] animated by CG studio Orange.[2] Shin'ichi Matsumi directed the series, with Nanami Higuchi handling series composition, Nao Ootsu designing the characters, and Satoru Kōsaki composing the series' music.[3] The series aired from October 10 to December 26, 2019 and aired on Fuji TV's +Ultra anime programming block and other channels. The first season was 12 episodes in total, with the Netflix release outside of Japan on March 13, 2020.[4][5] At the conclusion of the TV broadcast, a second season was announced.[6][7] Animation studio Orange returned to produce the second season, which aired from January 7 to March 25, 2021.[8][9][10]

Returning to the episode itself, Studio Orange continues with their smart adaptational choices that were evident in the structure of episode 1. The changes for episode 2 are certainly less drastic, but no less effective.

This small change proves effective as it provides a hook for the viewer to stay interested throughout BEASTARS episode 2, as we wonder why Legosi is so depressed and then what might come of the emotions aroused by the rest of his meeting with Haru.

Episode 2 then continues on adapting the rest of chapter 6, chapter 7 and chapter 8 rather faithfully, only cutting out a short explanation as to why the anteater who accompanied Legosi to the Gardening Club ran away because this was already explained back in episode 1 with an anime-original scene.

Speaking of anime-original content, there was one scene in BEASTARS episode 2 that stood out to me in particular in terms of demonstrating how engaged the team over at Studio Orange are with the original source material.

About halfway through the episode, Louis is struggling with his leg injury backstage during a break in rehearsals, attempting to hide the fact from the rest of the club. The Drama Club leader then calls everybody to go once more from the top and Louis stands, shifting from pain to pride in a beautiful piece of character animation that only 3D animation could allow for.

The audio, on the whole, felt more complete in this episode too, with the backing music standing out a few times. In particular, when we returned to the events of the last episode and saw Legosi holding Haru. The orchestral beats of the music helped build a dark tension that was aided by the shift in visual style. From the darker colour scheme to the haphazardly animated monster, the whole scene was built to stand out against the brighter scenes. The focus on the sound of the heartbeat was a nice touch too.

Haru only really appeared at the start and end of the episode, but she definitely had a rough time of it. At the start, she dealt with the fear of imminent death, only to escape. In the end, when asked about her injury, she claimed to not remember how she got it and put it down to a bad dream.

This was another great episode though. The themes running throughout are well done, and the animal traits of the characters are used far better than I expected. So far, this is a big thumbs up from me!

We also expect the third season to split into two parts, with part one arriving with 12 episodes and will cover the events of the Interspecies Relations Arc. We then expect part 2 to arrive at a later date and will arrive with a further 12 episodes and cover the final arc of the story, Revenge of the Love Failure.
