The story of the series takes place in a contemporary world divided between carnivores and herbivores. The animals walk and behave like humans. At Cherryton Academy, where carnivores and herbivores study together, Legoshi, a gray wolf lives with other carnivores in a dormitory. Legoshi also helps the students at the school drama club.
When Tem, the alpaca gets mysteriously murdered, it creates a feeling of distrust among the students of both groups. Legoshi then meets Haru, a dwarf rabbit, and apparently has romantic feelings for her, despite Haru having feelings for Louis, a red deer and a star pupil looking forwards to be the next Beastar.
