Beastars Season 2 Ending: Everything you should know!

Beastars Season 2 Ending Explained: Who is the killer?
Ridge is confused. He murdered Tame because she had been indoctrinated to oppress drugs and mistakenly assumed that the only real way for a vegetarian and non-vegetarian to have a real, meaningful relationship was for the latter to eat the former.
Because deep down he knew the idea was nonsense, he saw in his mind the killing of Tem as an extreme act of friendship, and he tried to corrupt that friendship by asking Legoshi to avenge Teme’s death.
seen as It makes something essential talk about the carnivore-vegetarian divide, and it’s something that the latter scene – more on this soon – doubles down.
But really the idea is simply that understanding, empathy, and compassion can help heal rifts even between staunch allies. Before eating Tem, Riz needed help, and he got no help.
If she had gotten that help, maybe things would have turned out differently. It’s also setting up Ridge’s final stand-down, but first, let’s move on to that second important scene by repeating the same point.
When Rizz sees through the attempt to record Pina admitting his guilt, Rizz appears in a predetermined location with Pina’s blood on his shirt. He tries to use it to provoke Legoshi, but the latter’s extraordinary sense of smell tells him that Pina is alive.
Bound, strangled, and wounded but alive. Despite all the training Legoshi has given himself under Gauhin’s tutelage, Riz proves to be too powerful for him. This is when Louie shows up and tells Legoshi to eat his leg to gain strength.
With massive firing blanks for me, it’s hard to rank this second season of BeeStars on par with the first—though it’s actually a pretty high bar.
Season 1 made me more thematically consistent, and I found Legosi’s character journey more compelling than this season-long Dancing With Rive. I also missed Haru’s presence, as she shuts down the emotional circuit in a way BeStars usually struggles to do in her absence.

Beastars Season 2 Review: A Must Watch Anime!
Legoshi’s main objective from the first season remains the same as in Season 2. He is on a mission to find out who killed his fellow drama club member, Tame, and how he can bring them to justice.
The murder mystery aspect of BeeStars Season 2 is further enhanced by the presence of some eccentric and elusive rattlesnake security guard named Rokum.
While not the main character in the wider narrative, Rokum’s scenes are very influential to the ongoing mystery of solving Tame’s murder. Plus, Rokum’s interactions with Legoshi are fun to watch, even if they’re somewhat creepy.
The story falters in the finale at the top of Louie’s arc, shortening a pivotal moment and minimizing impact. If you haven’t read the manga, it will still be noticeable, although you won’t have the source to fill in what the director was trying to do.
If you feel unsatisfied, watch this excellent Extended ED video only after watching episode 12. A deer leading a gang of lions sounds weird if you haven’t seen Beastars, but the man works and makes for a compelling subplot. The mirroring of Legosi and Louie’s arcs continues to impress.
