Below is a list of the history and species featured in the Beastars series.
Herbivores are an animal order that feeds on plants.
Contrary to carnivores, in the world of Beastars, the concept of herbivores is much more extensive since it also includes animals from other classifications such as, for example, frugivores, insectivores, folivores, xylophages, and granivores, etc.
In prehistoric times, herbivores (known at the time as "Nature Animals") did not have very different characteristics from those of their respective species at present. These were very fertile and therefore very prosperous nomadic animals. When they encountered life animals (carnivores), they perceived nature animals as objects of protection necessary for their survival.
Union with carnivores
Over a long period of history, the nature animals formed a society with the life animals which became more gentle and adopted a peaceful lifestyle.
The animals had a peaceful period up to the Carni-Herbi War, where the nature animals became known under the name of "herbivores". Even though the herbivore population was three times more numerous than the carnivore, it was reduced until it was on par with the carnivores, who ate the carcasses of the herbivores they killed. This caused the herbivores to despise the carnivores. Unexpectedly a whale was involved in the war, causing the herbivores to stop taking it seriously and surrender.
Modern society is mostly herbivore-dominated. Herbivores are viewed in a better light than carnivores due to their lack of predatory instincts, and can carry great influence. Some herbivores, especially small breeds, are wary of carnivore strangers.
Below you will see a gallery with some herbivore species shown throughout the Beastars series:
Carnivores are an animal order that obtain nutrient energy from meat consumption. This classification also includes some animals that are classified as omnivorous, such as bears and dogs.
Carnivores have a series of characteristics in common, more visibly the fangs and claws (this does not apply to carnivorous birds). They have a size and strength superior to most herbivores - the largest being larger in a matter of physical strength.
In prehistoric times, large-breed carnivores had a height and weight of approximately 300 centimeters and a weight of 200 kilos. They had an intelligent behavior and had a great sense of camaraderie, which means that they had the ability to treat their companions with compassion, protect them and be kind to them. However, they were also very wild, and when they fought each other, they always did it until death, and the winner devoured the loser and lived. For what they were known as "Life Animals" because they fed on life. The life animals lived thanks to the strength of their bodies so that the growth of their population was stagnant and their culture was underdeveloped. This was until they encountered the nature animals (herbivores), which the life animals perceived as objects of their protection. This may have been their survival instincts telling them that helping herbivores would be beneficial to them.
Union with herbivores
Because the nature animals were always very fertile and therefore very prosperous, the life animals and nature animals formed an animal society.
Over a long period of history, life animals became gentler, got more protein from consuming eggs and milk, adopted a peaceful lifestyle, and became leaner.
The animals had a peaceful period, up to the Carni-Herbi War, where the life animals became known under the name of "carnivores". They won the war by surrendering the herbivores.
In modern society, carnivores are taught to control their strength from an early age, although sometimes they get carried away so it is not uncommon for a carnivore to pluck a limb from an herbivore by accident. Because of that all hospitals are required to have reimplantation programs and the success rate of the surgeries is quite high. In modern society it is stricter carnivores who are instructed to consider taboo to teach herbivores their claws and fangs hurt them, and in the most extreme cases they can be arrested for having discussions with herbivores. Most carnivores have an appreciation for their enormous physical strength. They have a macho behavior and tend to minimize and sympathize with herbivores. Due to their great strength, carnivores go for jobs where physical strength is required, such as workers, police forces, sports, among others.
- The Black Market: It's a place where meat is illegally sold and served from herbivores (and sometimes carnivores) in restaurants. The market is widely tolerated among adult carnivores and is used to satisfy their desire for meat and relieve stress from the daily life. Circulating meat is secretly supplied by hospitals and funeral homes, and even some low-income animals sell their body parts as raw meat.
- Predatorial offender: It's a state in the criminal record imposed on carnivores that have eaten meat of any living animal, regardless of the severity of the crime. This state will remain in the animal's civic record throughout their life, and limitations such as prohibition of marriage with an herbivore. It will be impossible for them to attend educational centers with herbivores, and it will be difficult for them to find employment in a company where an herbivore serves in officer, etc. In addition, they are being subject to a series of social restrictions.
