At this high school, instead of jocks and nerds, the students are divided into predators and prey.
At a high school where the students are literally divided into predators and prey, friendships maintain the fragile peace. Who among them will become a Beastar—a hero destined to lead in a society naturally rife with mistrust?
Gray wolf Legoshi joins forces with Beastar horse Yahya to try to apprehend a mixed-species elephant poacher. Meanwhile, gray wolf Juno meets with red deer Louis and learns why he can’t be with her, even if he wanted to. Juno and Legoshi commiserate about the drawbacks of being in love with a beast of another species. Then Legoshi falls into a trap he can’t escape without the aid of a stranger, and Louis gets an offer he might not be able to refuse.
