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 forms an unexpected alliance to obtain intel about mixed-species psychopath Melon from the secret organization Kopi Luwak. But the resulting negotiation triggers Legoshi’s craving for meat. Meanwhile, dwarf rabbit Haru innocently crosses paths with Melon, unaware of the danger. Then, Haru’s patience grows thin with Legoshi’s insistence that their relationship remain chaste. And all too soon, Legoshi runs afoul of the law again.
