On the recent Sunday, Paru Itagaki, the creator of BEASTARS, shared a joyful announcement via X (formerly known as Twitter). She revealed that she had entered the bonds of matrimony. Alongside her announcement, she shared a photograph of herself adorned in a wedding gown, accentuated by a comical giant rooster head mask. Additionally, she treated her followers to a delightful collection of photos, highlighting the delectable dishes her now-husband had lovingly prepared for her over the course of the past three years.
Twitter Japanese to English interpretation: I got married! As you can see in my “Meal Diary,” my husband has been cooking for me for around three years now. From now on, I would also like to use the power of my husband's food to continue drawing enjoyable manga. In September 2016, Paru Itagaki introduced her manga creation, BEASTARS, within the pages of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine. This captivating manga concluded its run in October 2020 and has since been made available in English by Viz Media.
Fast forward to July, Studio Orange thrilled fans with news of an upcoming television anime adaptation, set to explore a fresh narrative arc. Concurrently, Netflix Japan unveiled details about this new storyline and launched an accompanying website.
Furthermore, Itagaki embarked on a manga mini-series titled Bota Bota, commencing on December 25. This brief yet engaging series wrapped up on February 19, and its compiled volume hit the shelves in Japan on April 8.
