MATSUMI Shinichi / KATO Michiya

Animated TV series [Japan]

A world where carnivores and herbivores coexist and eating meat is a felony. A killing for food occurs at the prestigious high school, where a gray wolf Legosi is attracted to dwarf rabbit Haru. The original is a comic of the same title by ITAGAKI Paru. Artists use a mixture of CG and hand-drawn images in main story, and stop-motion animation in the opening credit, attempting transcend the boundaries of technique in visual expression. [23 min. × 12 episodes]
