Beastars Spoilers

At the start of the anime, Legoshi is 17 years old. Despite his tall, imposing stature, Legoshi is quiet and reclusive. He is part of the drama club as a stagehand. While he has been in the club for quite some time, he has never been inclined to act in one of their productions yet. Legoshi painstakingly hides the carnivorous part of himself, so he will not appear threatening to his herbivore schoolmates.  Following the gruesome murder of Tem, the alpaca, Legoshi begins looking for the possible murderer.

Haru is a third-year student who has gained a certain notoriety for her brief affairs with multiple males on the campus. Haru and Legoshi’s paths cross when the latter’s carnivorous instincts suddenly take over him, and he nearly ends up eating her. After the terrifying first encounter, Legoshi finds himself attracted to Haru but can’t figure out whether he is interested because she is a herbivore or a female.
