In episode 7, Legoshi can’t figure out why his jaws feel weak. He is still trying to find out who killed and ate Tem. Realizing no one else is in the locker room with him, Legoshi proceeds to drink from every suspect’s bottle as he remembers how the perpetrator’s saliva tastes like. At the drama club, Tao accidentally rips out one of Kibi’s arms. Through Legoshi’s voice-over, we learn that this is surprisingly common as the carnivores often don’t realize their own strength.
