- "By the time we got there everyone had already moved on. It took two hours, but he carried me there. I lost weight for Haruto. I joined the Cottect 5 because Haruto was there. Since that day, everything I did was for Haruto's sake."

Chapter 10 (
Airi Maya recounts her first meeting and subsequent infatuation with Haruto Kaguragi through a flashback. At school, she post fliers calling Oto Edogawa a "peasant". Airi then claims that Haruto posted them to Oto.
An only child, Airi Maya was "spoiled rotten" by her rich parents. She had no friends, because of her selfish attitude. Airi often indulged in sweets, which caused her to become overweight and she started having trouble walking. During a field trip in third grade, she fell and no one offered to help her, except Haruto Kaguragi. He then carried her to their destination, though two hours late. After the incident, Airi did everything for "Haruto's sake", including losing weight and joining the Correct 5.
At Eitoku Academy, Kaito Taira, Sugimaru Eibi, and Issa Narumiya find several fliers, calling Oto Edogawa a "peasant". Kaito quickly realizes that Airi posted the fliers. She simply asks, "when are we going to force her to leave?" Meanwhile, Oto walks through the halls as another student calls her a "stealth commoner." She approaches her friends, Asami and Kyoko, who act coldly towards her. When she enters her homeroom, she sees that her desk is missing. Once she finds it, Oto questions whether Haruto posted the fliers or not.
Outside, Oto is staring at the fliers on the ground, when Airi confronts her. Oto asks her if Haruto posted the fliers, which Airi confirms. She lies further by saying, "Haruto asked me to make them." Haruto arrives at school, after recovering from hives. He sees Oto at the school gate and goes to greet her. Oto tells him to "stay away" from her and runs away. Haruto stares at her in shock, before noticing the fliers on the ground. Airi walks up and tells him that "[she] did it" for his sake.
