Not to be confused with Chapter 5 of Boys Over Flowers Season 2.

"We spend an enormous amount of time and money, making ourselves into perfect women. Someday we'll marry perfect men, like those in F4. And they will not be seduced away by the likes of you!"
Yuriko and her friends reveal their true intentions

Chapter 5 (第5話 () ) of the manga series, Boys Over Flowers by Yoko Kamio was first published in May 1992 in Margaret. It was followed by chapter six in the thirteenth issue of Margaret in June 1992.[1] The chapter introduces the girl trio, reoccurring antagonists throughout the series.

At school, Tsukushi Makino walks into her homeroom to find a vicious rumor written on the blackboard. Sometime later, she discovers three girls erasing the message. They ask to be Tsukushi's friend and invite her to a ritzy party.

Plot[]

Tsukushi Makino and the F4 arrive at Eitoku Academy at the same time. She briefly catches the eye of Rui Hanazawa, who nonchalantly looks away. Meanwhile, Tsukasa Domyoji mistakenly believes she looked at him, causing him to think she likes him. Tsukushi walks into her classroom to find a rumor saying she had two abortions written on the blackboard. Suspecting the culprit to be Tsukasa, she finds him and loudly declares that she is a virgin. He misinterprets the situation again.

Upon returning to the classroom, Tsukushi sees three girls cleaning the blackboard. The girls, Yuriko Asai, Minako Yamano, and Erika Ayuhara, compliment her strength and ask to be her friend. They then invite her to a "casual" party. Tsukushi agrees to go to the party, despite feeling forced into it when Yuriko offers to pay for her ticket. At work, Tsukushi talks about the party with Yuki Matsuoka. Sojiro Nishikado and Rui then walk in. Rui purchases a pastry because it is cute, though he cannot eat sweets.

Later, Tsukushi enters the party dressed casually, while everyone else is dressed fancy. The girls laugh at Tsukushi's outfit. Tsukushi attempts to leave, but feels compelled to stay when they pay for her ticket. When a group of boys approach Tsukushi, Yuriko lies to them by saying that Tsukushi had two abortions. At that moment, Tsukushi realizes they are the true culprits of the vicious rumor from earlier. The girls tell her that "someday we'll marry perfect men, like those in F4", revealing that they are jealous of Tsukushi.

Arc: Red Slip Troubles

  • The party Tsukushi is invited to is in Roppongi, an area in Tokyo known for its night life scene.
  • Sojiro jokingly calls Tsukushi a "working virgin" (勤労処女) instead of a "working girl" after she yelled at Tsukasa that she was a virgin. The phrase was included in the keywords section of Hana Yori Dango FF.
  • Sojiro jokes that Rui "could fall in love with a weed on the side of the road." After they leave, Yuki teases Tsukushi whose name means "weed."
  • Yuriko, Minako, and Erika bully Tsukushi for the first time.

  • Chapter five was first published with a color opening in 1992. The illustration depicts a close-up of Tsukushi with simple versions of the F4 in bubbles. It was not published again until the 2005 release of the complete edition of Boys Over Flowers.[2]

  • Sojiro wears a baseball jersey with "New York" on it and his baseball cap also has the initials "NY." This is perhaps a reference to the New York Yankees. Later, Rui wears a jersey with the word Mets, another New York baseball team.
  • Tsukasa again confuses the words "mencho" (メンチョ), referring to a boil in the Kansai region,[3] and "mentsu" (メンツ), meaning "face" or "honor."[4] In the English, he instead mixes up "solitaire" and "solidarity."
  • Yuriko and Minako wear accessories bearing a symbol similar to the famous Chanel logo.

  • In the Viz edition, Yuki's name is spelled as "Yuuki" instead of with just one u.
