This past Sunday, the renowned author of BEASTARS, Paru Itagaki, made a joyous announcement on X (formerly Twitter) that she has entered the bonds of matrimony.
Her celebratory post featured a captivating glimpse of her donning a wedding dress, complete with an oversized rooster head mask.
Additionally, she shared a delightful montage of delectable dishes lovingly crafted by her now-husband over the course of the past three years.
“I am now a married woman! As you can discern from my ‘Meal Diary,’ my husband has been diligently preparing meals for me for approximately three years. Moving forward, I aspire to harness the culinary prowess of my beloved husband to create manga that continues to bring joy.”
Itagaki initially introduced her BEASTARS manga to the world within the pages of Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine back in September 2016.
結婚しました！私の"ごはん日記"の、ここ3年分くらいの自炊は旦那さんが作ってくれていたものです。これからも旦那さんのご飯パワーを糧に、楽しい漫画を描いていきたいと思います。 pic.twitter.com/xBsbS0Aqzu— 巴留/SANDA⑩9/7発売 (@itaparu99) September 24, 2023
This remarkable journey culminated in October 2020, coinciding with the conclusion of the manga’s run. Viz Media has been faithfully translating and publishing the manga in English.
In a separate development, Studio Orange made a significant announcement in July regarding a fresh storyline for the television anime adaptation of BEASTARS. This exciting revelation was also corroborated by Netflix Japan, which unveiled a dedicated website for this new anime arc.
