- "This is from a fan letter I just received: "I first started reading Boys over Flowers when I was in 7th grade. Now I've graduated from middle school. The years I spent there are filled with memories of Boys over Flowers. Things like that make me so happy." Thank you for all your letters! They're my main source of inspiration."

Rich boy Tsukasa returns to Japan after he discovers the true identity of Tsukushi's "Kinsan." Tsukushi herself is having trouble accepting his identity. Then Kinsan invites Tsukushi to a swank party where they bump into Tsukasa, who causes a major scene when Kinsan declares his intentions toward Tsukushi!

- —Viz description
Tsukushi Makino is stunned when she learns Kinsan is Seinosuke Amakusa, a son of a parliament member. She accuses him of "feel[ing] sorry for [her]." Before Seinosuke can explain himself, Tsukushi's mother happens to walk by. Noticing Tsukasa Domyoji is there, she whisks him off to their apartment. Tsukushi spares Seinosuke a single glance and then follows them home. There her parents prepare two sets of bedding for her and Tsukasa. They then shut the couple in the room, before going to sleep with her brother in the kitchen. Tsukasa asks Tsukushi "How did you feel when I went away?" He loses his nerve and says "Forget about it." Once Tsukushi falls asleep, Tsukasa leans over and faintly kisses her.
The following morning, Tsukasa has Tsukushi go shopping with him. He tries on several outfits, each one Tsukushi rejected before saying "I think the first one was best." Later at school, Seinosuke waits for Tsukushi by the gate. He clears up the misunderstanding and reveals that he has feelings for Tsukushi. Seinosuke leaves after inviting her to a party held by his father. That afternoon, Tsukushi talks things out with Yuki Matsuoka. Yuki makes a comment about Tsukasa loving Tsukushi, which she denies. Later, Tsukushi asks Rui Hanazawa to accompany her to the party. She is surprised to see Tsukasa there. Next, Seinosuke announces that he has no wish to "follow in [his] father's footsteps."
Seinosuke steps down from the stage and approaches Tsukushi, asking her to be his girlfriend. Tsukasa punches him, before she can answer. The resulting brawl makes Tsukushi the subject of the national media, much to her distress. The next day, Tsukasa decides Tsukushi is "too poor" and wants to "make [her] look like she deserves [him]." On her way home, Tsukushi meets a group of Eirin Academy students whom confront her about Seinosuke. He himself shows up shortly and forces them to leave her alone. He apologizes to Tsukushi for everything. Later, Tsukasa stops by Tsukushi's work to ask her some questions. He fills out a recommendation letter, but refuses to say what it is for.
At home, Tsukushi learns her father has borrowed one million yen from a loanshark and lost it at a race track. Her mother is distressed and asks her husband for a divorce, not seeing a future for their family anymore. Tsukushi promises to handle it and heads to Tsukasa's house to ask for a loan. He agrees as long as she enters the Teen of Japan contest. The next day, Tsubaki Domyoji invites Tsukushi over to discuss the contest. Tsubaki, having won six years ago, describes it in great detail. That year, Tsubaki won by making okonomiyaki which the other girls did not know how to make. She states "There's no telling what will happen in this contest." Tsukushi begins her training with instructors hired by Tsubaki.
