I've been long a fan of anime and manga, personally i also found a little pity how the Japanese furry fandom (like the Chinese one) doesn't rise too much in the international community, because their local comic-animation industry produce LOTS of interesting stuff.
Most of these anime and manga have only few secondary characters or minor ones related to the anthro, and i've been positively impressed by "Beastars" that differently from most it's a 100% anthro animal worlds.
It's VERY close for some elements to Zootopia: urban modern-day world (just more Japanese school style with post-school "clubs"), and very strong prey-predator social issues. Also (like Zootopia) there is quite strong size-difference between different species (mouses, rabbits etc.).
Differently from Zootopia is aimed for teen/mature readers: the protagonist Legosi is a young quiet wolf, part of the drama theatre club (as lighting technician), who face his growth with facing his violent predatory instincts.
Regardless the presence of anthros as protagonists, the character development itself it's quite intriguing, and the plot doesn't rush on things so far (there is a murdering, but apparently none of the students is on rush to find the killer with personal investigation).
I should say (for rule34 fans xd), that the manga has sexual hints, with 1-2 characters who have a sexual life and 1 "semi-offscreen" sex scene.
PS: they are also working on an anime of it!!
