What is the plot of the Revenge of Love Failure Arc?
Yahya discovers the existence of a hybrid crime boss (half herbivore, half carnivore) named Melon who looks half antelope and half wolf. After Yahya tries to catch Melon on his own, Yahya decides to enlist Legoshi’s help to catch Melon and offers Legoshi a deal that he can’t refuse because Melon is too fast.
Legoshi meets Haru’s parents and has a family dinner. Afterwards, when Haru’s father drives Legoshi home, he confesses that he is in love with his daughter Haru. Legoshi expects Haru’s father to be shocked, but he accepts him.
Meanwhile, Louis accidentally comes into contact with the Shishigumi crime syndicate, of which Melon is the leader. Romance is in the air when Juno confesses her feelings for Louis on live TV news.
Legoshi and Melon face each other and when Legoshi is about to catch him, he has to run away from the police and take refuge in Cherryton. Cherryton will be the scene of the final showdown between Melon and Legoshi. Who will win? You’ll have to wait until the final season of BEASTARS to find out!
