Oto Edogawa returns home, after Tenma Hase kisses her. She feels a "pain in [her] chest" and surmises that it because of Haruto Kaguragi's confesssion. Remembering Tenma's kindness, Oto resolves that she has to try to "reciprocate" it. Later, Haruto meets with Kaito Taira, Issa Narumiya, and Sugimaru Eibi. They tell him about the recent rise in "Eitoku hunts". Students have been attacked in town by thugs, who spray them with yellow paint. In order to protect the school, Haruto decides that they need "to get more powerful."
The next morning, Megumi Nishidome goes to Haruto's house for breakfast. Haruto knows that Kaito asked her to come, but she insists that she came here "for [her] own sake". He alludes to his love for Oto by saying that "people's feelings can[not] be reasoned with". Megumi shows no signs of giving up. She mentions the photos of Tsukasa Domyoji on the walls. Megumi admits that several people advised her against transferring to Eitoku. However, "seeing [Haruto] try so hard" to restore Eitoku, inspired Megumi to help him.
At school, Megumi joins the Correct 5 as they walk through the halls. Airi Maya spots Oto and walks over to her. Haruto ignores Oto. Airi is annoyed by his coldness, but Oto knows that "this is how it should be." Haruto chooses to put his attention in Eitoku and "wait for time to heal [his] wounds." The other students notice his changed demeanor, which they call "kinda scary". On a different day, the Correct 5 arrive at the school's gates. The gates and the ground have been vandalized.
