Weekly Shonen Champion magazine has announced that Paru Tagaki’s bestselling, critically-acclaimed, and award-winning Beastars manga is getting a stage adaptation. They also launched an official website, as well as a Twitter Page for the stage adaptation as well.

The play’s official title is Beastars The Stage, and it will first hit Tokyo in April 2020. It will then head over to Osaka sometime in May.

To celebrate the new adaptation, series mangaka Paru Itagaki also released a sketch of main character Legosi. A play for Beastars is quite fitting, as Legosi is an actor for his school’s drama club.

Manga Synopsis (via Viz)

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?

Last night at Cherryton Academy, an herbivore student was killed and eaten. Among the members of the drama club, the herbivores’ suspicions naturally turn to their carnivore classmates… The prime suspect? Legosi, a large wolf. But he wouldn’t hurt a fly—or would he? And will dwarf rabbit Haru bring out the beast in him? Or are his feelings for her…something else?
