- "I publically announced that my goal this year was to get a driver's license. (I have bad memories from an unsuccessful attempt ten years ago.) I spent 18 days at a driving school and was able to get one in six weeks' time. But I was so stressed out every day! Drawing manga was a walk in the park compared to that! I'm glad I was able to get my license this time."

- "Hase, president of elite Momonozono Academy, is stabbed while protecting Oto from some thugs.

- —Viz description
Tenma Hase is stabbed by a juvenile delinquent while protecting Oto Edogawa. She accompanies him to the hospital, despite his attempts to convince her not to. Four hours later, Haruto Kaguragi is still waiting for her at the bridge. When Tenma goes into surgery, Oto has a moment to think and starts to worry about Haruto. She writes a note and asks a cab driver to give it to him. After Tenma's surgery, he reveals to Oto that he has no feeling in his right hand and thinks he "may have severed a nerve." Meanwhile, Haruto continues waiting for Oto, though it is now raining. The cab driver has a hard time seeing and ends up handing the note to the wrong person, who walks by Haruto seconds later.
A doctor informs Tenma's parents that his injury requires extensive treatment. His stepmother blames Oto for the accident, though she already feels that it was her fault. Still waiting at the bridge, Haruto believes that he has been rejected by Oto. His friends, Kaito Taira, Issa Narumiya, and Sugimaru Eibi, arrive to take him home. After Tenma's parents leave, Oto decides to stay with him in Kyoto since winter break has already started. Hitoshi Konoe is being treated at the same hospital. Oto prevents him from killing himself by telling him that "Tenma will think it [is] his fault". Tenma joins the pair a few minutes later. He voices his disapproval of Konoe's earlier actions, though he decides to "believe in [him]" again.
Oto and Konoe spend Christmas trying to cheer up Tenma. On New Years' Eve, Kaito Taira gathers the Correct 5 to announce that the conflict with Momonozono Academy needs to be resolved. Tenma and Konoe then enter the room and apologize to Haruto. Haruto agrees to form a partnership between their schools. Six months later, Oto finally returns to school now that Tenma has successfully recovered. Eitoku Academy's moral has become more cheerful since the "Manly Man Festival". The school now holds joint classes with Momonozono. Airi Maya tries to convince Oto to go on the joint summer school and asks a passing-by Haruto to persuade her. He stares at her with cold indifference, saying "So what?"
Haruto's attitude irritates Airi and she attempts to go after him until Oto stops her. Airi mentions that Haruto seems like "a whole different person" lately. She decides to end her friendship with him, but Oto pleads for her not to. Airi spends the rest of day cheering up Oto. When Oto starts crying while looking at old photos of Haruto, Airi vexingly shouts "Haruto, you jerk!" Some days later, Oto decided to go on the summer trip after all, due to Airi's encouragement. She is still feeling anxious about seeing Haruto. Nevertheless, she plans to enjoy herself and goes on a snorkeling tour by herself. Haruto happens to have joined the same group. The two are stranded in the ocean by mistake after the boat leaves them.
