They’re going hard with the beast wordplay, which we have done our best to turn into understandable and equivalent English. For example, the word for a resident of a city is 住民 (juumin), but here they change the first kanji to 獣 for beast, and it’s pronounced exactly the same. You can only see the difference when it’s written out. This happens a few other times, but your viewing experience should be exactly the same as a native speaker.
And we’re back with Trigger’s newest anime, this time about what it means to become an animal in a world still dominated by humans. Looking back, we’ve actually done quite a few from their studio, haven’t we. Although half the series was already released on Netflix, I’m personally taking it one episode at a time as we go. This was a good start, and already you can tell the themes are going a different direction than the recent Beastars. It’s also always a pleasure hearing Morohoshi Sumire in a leading role. You can feel some of Trigger’s signature style all over the episode, so here’s hoping for an exciting ride.
Despite being Advance, I’ve got to say that Teko was quite Aggressive! How lucky we are that this got a second season. It looks like Kokoro and Pikari’s imouto are here, which means that we should be getting into supernatural territory and hopefully the Peter storyline too! I’m always up for more Amano Kozue and her lovely worldview, so I hope you’re ready to take a dive and go exploring in yet another beautiful, blue world with us.
