Chapter 7 (第7話 () ) of Boys Over Flowers was first released in June 1992 in the manga magazine, Margaret. The chapter was followed by the eighth installment in July 1992. It marks the first official appearance of Shizuka Todo.

News of the return of Rui Hanazawa's first love, Shizuka Todo, reaches Tsukushi Makino. She later receives a shock when Rui mockingly kisses her on the cheek. Meanwhile, Tsukasa Domyoji tries his best to impress Tsukushi.

Plot[]

After he stops Yuriko Asai and her friends from harassing Tsukushi Makino, Tsukasa Domyoji offers his hand to her. Tsukushi almost accepts, but comes to her senses, realizing that he put her "in this situation" in th first place. Tsukusa asks her "what's wrong with me?", prompting Tsukushi to fire off several reasons why she dislikes him. She punches him and quickly hurries away, before overhearing Akira Mimasaka's and Sojiro Nishikado's conversation about Shizuka Todo.

She joins Sojiro and Akira, asking questions about Shizuka. They tell her about their childhood, revealing Rui was severely introverted. Shizuka was the only one able to bring him out of his shell. Tsukushi feels down and wanders around town. She happens upon Rui kissing a poster with Shizuka's face on it. He appears irritated by her presence, causing her to babble. Rui perceives Tsukushi's feelings for him and kisses her on the cheek. Rui walks away and Tsukushi realizes he was "toying with [her]."

The next day, Yuriko and her friends are talking about Shizuka and point out how different Tsukushi is from her. Annoyed, Tsukushi leaves the room. She passes by Tsukasa and barely recognizes him since he has straightened his hair to look more appealing to her. However, his hair begins to curl back to his natural style. Tsukushi laughs. Akira and Sojiro then run up to announce Shizuka's arrival. Rui greets her first. Shizuka jumps into his arms and declares "I've missed you so much!"
