Season One Plot Summary

According to IMDb the plot summary reads, “In the 21st century, the existence of humanoid animals that have been living in the darkness for centuries have been revealed to the world. One day, Michiru, who was a normal high-school student, suddenly turns into a tanuki person; running away, she seeks refuge in Anima City, a place set up for humanoid animals to be able to live as themselves. While there, Michiru encounters a wolf person, Shirou Ogami, who goes on to investigate why she became a humanoid animal, and in the process gets mixed up in even stranger events.”

Also, in an interview with OTAQUEST, author Kazuki Nakashima was asked about the ideas on how he portrayed this story. He said, “Director Yoshinari and other producers are the ones who first created the setting of “a world with Beastmen”. Initially, beastmen lurked in the darkness of the world where the humans live and made their own unique world, and the story was about a girl who knows nothing about beastmen going into that world. However, I thought it would be better to make their city more open in order to show the social structure of the beastman society more, so I created the setting of “Anima City”.”
