Beastars 2nd Season was a master of tension. There was so much volatility in this show, so it should have been difficult to pick just one scene to highlight. Except, that wasn’t really an issue.
This moment is as memorable as it is because it came out of nowhere. There was no build-up; there was no warning; this was no indication that let you know, “Hey, you’re about to feel insanely distressed.”
Among the many reasons why this scene was so remarkable was its implication. Arms and limbs being ripped off were enough of an occurrence in this universe that reattachment surgery was as routine as getting a check-up. Instead, the real fear was that one of the many carnivorous in the room would see the blood and then lose themselves in an unstoppable feeding frenzy.
