- —Viz description
At an amusement park, Oto Edogawa and Tenma Hase unexpectedly run into Haruto Kaguragi and Megumi Nishidome. Megumi suggests to turn their meeting into a double date, which everyone reluctantly agrees to. Towards the end of the night, the two couples decide to ride the Ferris wheel. Haruto absentmindedly walks pass Tenma and gets on the ride with Oto. Alone together, Haruto nearly confesses his love to Oto. The Ferris wheel makes a sudden lurch, causing a child to hang out of the car below. Haruto climbs down and rescues the child, though he falls when the ride starts again. A mattress that has been placed below catches him in time. Megumi immediately throws her arms around Haruto.
After Haruto's near-death experience, Megumi asks him to "go out with [her] for real.". Meanwhile, Oto realizes Tenma is insecure in their relationship since she has not settled things with Haruto. She visits his house, where he confesses his feelings. Oto thanks him for his sincerity, before declaring "Now we can end this." She asks him to stop pursuing her now that she has a boyfriend. After Oto leaves, Kobayashi arrives with a puzzle to cheer up Haruto. They put it together and Haruto realizes that the puzzle is of Megumi. She then shows up. At the same time, Oto walks home and finds Tenma waiting for her. She apologizes but he silences her with a kiss, saying "Don't ever apologize to me again."
Later, Kaito Taira, Sugimaru Eibi, and Issa Narumiya inform Haruto about "Eitoku hunting." They report that several students have been attacked in town with yellow spray paint. Haruto realizes that the Correct 5 has "to get more powerful" in order to protect their school. A couple days later, they arrive at Eitoku to find the school's gates vandalized. Oto appears with a mop and bucket, urging the other students to start cleaning. Meanwhile, Tenma attends a student council meeting at Momonozono Academy. His vice president Hitoshi Konoe is surprisingly harsh with the other members. After school, Oto waits for Airi Maya. She is approached by three strangers with spray paint.
Airi frantically calls Haruto when Oto does not show up. He appears disinclined to help, leaving Airi frustrated. Two hours earlier, the thugs attack Oto and accidentally get spray paint in her eyes. A group of Momonozono students walk by and assist her to the hospital. When Tenma arrives, he asks her to transfer to his school. He decides to give her time to think it over and has Konoe escort her to work. Konoe is annoyingly pushy about her transferring, though she insists that "[she is] still thinking about it." A short while later, Haruto arrives at her work. He notices spray paint in her hair and becomes worried, which turns to annoyance when she mentions the Momonozono students and Tenma.
