Though Paru Itagaki's vision isn't over just yet, with BEAST COMPLEX starting back in Weekly Shonen Champion from January 2021 for a limited "intensive serialization" according to Itagaki, giving us more short stories to look forward to in the world of beasts. Viz Media is releasing both BEASTARS and BEAST COMPLEX in English, with volume 9 of BEASTARS currently up for pre-order. They describe the series as such:
At a high school where the students are literally divided into predators and prey, it’s personal relationships that maintain the fragile peace. Who among them is a Beastar—an academic and social role model destined to become a leader in a society naturally rife with mistrust?
