Yen Press is highlighting a new series that launched last week from the publisher with Bestia. The work is based on the story by Makoto Sanda with the adaptation written by Miyakokashiwa and artwork by Aco Arisaka. It began in 2018 as serialized in Shounen Ace magazine with two volumes compiled so far. It’s an easy title to pick up without a huge commitment for those looking for something new and fun to try, which this definitely looks like it falls into.
Plot Concept: “Asuka, you are my keeper.”
Asuka Tsukasa has an irrational fear of animals, especially dogs-which makes studying
abroad in London, city of dog lovers, a bit of a challenge for him. There, in his vanished mother’s hometown, he hopes to find a clue to her whereabouts and to meet the mysterious smiling girl from his dreams. But life only gets harder for this zoophobe when he’s invited to join a secret organization that seeks to coexist with beasts and protect the world from the ones that go out of control. At least he gets to meet that girl-though she turns out.
The girl from Asuka's dreams not only changed from human to dog. She also went from wanting to rip him to shreds to "Asuka, you are my keeper"!
