Wastelander Panda: Mad Max with Anthropomorchic Animals

I just discovered this great web series yesterday. They've only done 3 episodes so far, but I ended up watching them back to back yesterday.
It follows a pair of anthropomorphic Pandas (the first episode follows a Panda named Isaac, and then the second two follow his brother, Arcayus), who are travelling across a post apocalyptic wasteland with a young girl/woman (there is a 15 gap between episodes 2 & 3). Just to warn anyone who is easily offended there is some fairly blood violence and some swearing up to and including f-words.
Prolouge:

I want to help them get hits so I'm just going to link to the actual episodes.
Episode One: Isaac & Rose
[15 years before A&R]
After witnessing the murder of her family, seven-year-old Rose ventures out into the Wasteland alone. Woken one night to the sound of nearby movement, she discovers Isaac, a rogue panda who abandoned his home - and last surviving brother - to explore new territories
Episode Two: Arcayus & Rose
[15 years after I&R; 2 weeks before A&A]
After Isaac’s murder, Rose tracks down his reclusive estranged brother, Arcayus, and begs him to help her seek revenge. Having lived in solitude in a corner of the Wasteland for over 15 years, Arcayus has no desire to return to his former life of violence, but reluctantly agrees to accompany her as far as the town of Raven.
Episode Three: Arcayus & Akira
[2 weeks after A&R]
Soon after departing Edgar’s house, Arcayus is caught by the Coyotes and sold to The Winchester Vault Pit. Forced to fight for the entertainment of others, he meets Akira, a 6ft bison who has lived his life within the fight pit walls. Confronted by this fate, Arcayus knows his only hope is Rose. But first he must battle to survive
It seems kind of goofy with the at first with the anthropomorphic animals, but once you get past that it is pretty great. It's an Australian production, so that helps to give it a bit of a Mad Max vibe.
