Chapter 26 (
Haruto Kaguragi's outlook on life changes after seeing Oto Edogawa with Tenma Hase. Megumi Nishidome transfers to Eitoku Academy to pursue Haruto. Her transfer boosts Eitoku's popularity, but Haruto does not appear to care.
Haruto Kaguragi runs home after seeing Oto Edogawa and Tenma Hase together. He throws away all of the items in his treasure vault as he thinks of Oto. Haruto calls himself a "fool", feeling that he cannot win againt Tenma. At school, Airi Maya asks Issa Narumiya and Sugimaru Eibi about Haruto's whereabouts since he has been absent for two days. Haruto arrives at school and is greeted by Megumi Nishidome, who has just transferred to Eitoku Academy. He simply ignores her.
Kaito Taira informs the other Correct 5 members that transfer applicants have increased by twenty percent thanks to Megumi. Airi dislikes her Megumi's transfer, though Kaito, Sugimaru, and Issa see no problem with it. Haruto says that he does not care, before telling Airi about Oto and Tenma. He leaves school early and mindlessly wanders around Tokyo. Haruto bumps into someone and insults him. The guy and his friends drag Haruto into an alley and beat him up. As they are hurting him, Haruto apathetically thinks of his vow to Tsukasa Domyoji.
Megumi yells for a police officer, which causes the thugs to run away. She offers her handkerchief to Haruto and informs him that she was following him. Haruto calls her a "stalker" and tells her to leave. Megumi refuses to leave and begins crying as she says "I fell your pain." After she tells him to "stop hurting [him]self", they sit on a nearby bench. Megumi then presents him with a boxed lunch, to which Haruto says "didn't you just say that I shouldn't hurt myself." Nonetheless, Haruto tries a bite, which he calls "horrible".
