Chapter 61 (
Oto Edogawa refuses Kei Windsor's request for her to take him to Haruto Kaguragi. He then starts helping Oto's manager by using his marketing skills, despite her protests. His suggestions work well, but Oto remains suspicious of Kei.
Oto Edogawa bluntly refuses when Kei Windsor asks her to take him to Haruto Kaguragi. She then threatens to call the cops and returns to work. Oto's manager asks his employees on what to do about an item, "egg containers with chocolates inside," that is not selling well. They all think the product should be popular and one wonders about its shape. Kei answers "They're for Easter" and tells them a bit about the holiday. He then offers his help in selling them.
Kei dazzles Oto's manager and coworker with his marketing knowledge. They begin following his advice. After arranging a nice display for the eggs, they watch as the product starts "flying off the shelves." Oto's manager thanks Kei, but he credits Oto with thirty percent of sales. He points out that she placed the items on a lower shelf than he said, which attracted attention from children. Kei tells them that marketing needs "heart". He offers to continue helping him, causing Oto to pull him outside.
Oto asks Kei to stop what he is doing, but he counters with "This doesn't have anything to do with Haruto." He then questions what kind of relationship she has with Haruto. Annoyed, she says "We help each other out when needed." After work, Oto heads home and wonders what she should say to Haruto. She anticipates seeing him when she arrives home. However, she finds the apartment empty. Shortly later, he enters the room saying "Welcome home." Oto blushes as she says "I'm home", which flusters Haruto.
- Just a few adjustments were made for Viz's volume version, such as changing "accessories" to "trinkets."
- At Oto's work, they are selling chocolate eggs for Easter. However, Easter usually takes place in April while this chapter is set mid-summer.
