The plot for season two will feature the Murder Incident Solution, the manga’s third arc. After narrowly surviving his fight with Shishigumi and rescuing Haru, Legoshi begins his search for Tem’s murderer.

As he comes closer to solving the mystery, Legoshi realizes that to confront the person responsible for it, he must train both his body and mind.

At the end of season one, Louis was reported missing by the papers and the audience last saw him was during the confrontation with Shishigumi.

One of the biggest mysteries of the show Tem’s killer, who was supposedly the dark figure throwing blood, packs into the trash in the final scene.
