"Next month, I plan to return to Paris to live. I have no plans to return to Japan. Dad, Mom, please forgive me for doing this. But it's time I began my adult life. I want to become a lawyer to help the poor. These lovely dresses, and my long hair won't serve me anymore. And I will give up the Todo name."
Shizuka Todo

Chapter 17 (第17話 () ) of Boys Over Flowers was published in November 1992 in the twenty-fourth issue of Margaret. The series' eighteenth chapter followed in December 1992.[1] The chapter marks the first appearance of Sakurako Sanjo.

Tsukushi Makino attends Shizuka Todo's birthday party with Yuki Matsuoka and Kazuya Aoike. She feels awkward around Tsukasa Domyoji. Towards the end of the party, Shizuka makes a huge announcement.

Plot

Tsukushi Makino sees Tsukasa Domyoji for the first time since he attacked her. The rest of the F4 then notice her presence. Sojiro Nishikado begins flirting with her friend Yuki Matsuoka. Tsukushi warns Yuki about him being a playboy, saying "You'll end up pregnant" which Sojiro denies. Sojiro then asks Tsukasa a question. He glances at Tsukushi and quickly turns away. Tsukushi becomes angry, thinking of the previous incident when he attacked and kissed her.

Yuki and Kazuya Aoike begin pointing out various celebrities around the party. She and Tsukushi say "Don't you think we stick out like sore thumbs?," to which Kazuya is oblivious. They then decide to peruse the buffet, but are largely unfamiliar with the food. Rui Hanazawa asks the waiters to serve them some foie gras. Tsukushi, though grateful for him being "sweet", does not feel the same "joy". She realizes it is because they are at Shizuka Todo's party. Tsukushi also keeps unconsciously looking for Tsukasa.

The last straw comes when Tsukasa smirks at her. Tsukushi begins drinking, despite her friends' protests. A television director harasses a young girl nearby. No one else is willing to help her, except Tsukushi. She ends up beating him up so much that Akira Mimasaka has to stop her. Sojiro Nishikado then compares her to Tsukasa, to which they say "I'm not like him/her!" Shizuka interrupts to make an announcement. She reveals her plans to pursue becoming a lawyer in France, also intending to "give up the Todo name."
