Chapter 196 is as close as we get to a happy ending in "Beastars"

Most of us feared the worst. Few were way to optimistic. So... was chapter 196 a somewhat happy ending?

Kinda:)

So, Haru and Legosi are gonna get married... for better or worse.

We are presented to an issue we have not considered before: The amount of stress Haru has to suffer from being with Legosi who is a wolf as well as... well, LEGOSI! So even if Legosi can keep himself from eating Haru, she has to suffer a lot of stress, something that is not healthy for smaller animals. Seriously, some animals can actually die of being in a way too stressful situation. And a cop sees them hug and assumes right away that Legosi is trying to attack Haru. That will most likely never change. But they love each other very much and will face a difficult future together.

Gouhin is now working in an actual hospital. His job is not exactly without risks, but it is a heck lot safer than being the vigilante shrink of the BAM, and he deserves to have a more relaxed life after all the shit he has gone through.

Cherryton has interspecies education again, important for the future of herbivore/carnivore relationships in the future.

Yafya stepped down from the position as Sublime Beastar, but is still fighting crime as a vigilante.

Some thought it was weird that Yafya would retire if he intended to keep doing what he always did. But here is the thing... Yafya has realized that he is a very flawed creature and has only recently done things to try and make the relationships between meat and plant eaters more relaxed. So he doesn’t think he deserves the privileges, wealth and power he gets as the unofficial ruler of animal society. But he can still do his part in improving society on his own with help from the rats. Hopefully in a less prejudice and harsh manner.

The lion mobsters are in the slammer right now. But they will get out eventually and get actual jobs in Louis’ company(most likely very well-paid jobs). Sure, it sucks that the ONE THING they got arrested for was “kidnapping” Louis, but it could be far worse AND their future looks rather bright.

Louis married a female he doesn’t love for the sake of business. But he still intend to try and make the relationship work in a way so it is not all business. Azuki is his wife now, but she can also be his companion. They may never get to actually love each other, but they can appreciate and care for each other. I think it is great that Louis makes an effort to make their relationship as... “friendly” as possible.

So this is a pretty nice ending all things considered:)
