Not to be confused with Chapter 71 of Boys Over Flowers Season 2.

"When I was pursuing Rui Hanazawa and I found out he was in love with someone else, the first time I saw Shizuka, I felt as though my heart were being squeezed. But it was different with Ayano. I didn't feel like I was being torn to shreds. She's a better match for Kinsan. I can honestly say that."
Tsukushi Makino

Chapter 71 (第71話 () ) of Boys Over Flowers was first released in Margaret's early April 1995 issue.[1] It was followed by chapter seventy-two later the same month. It was also collected into the eleventh volume of the series.

Tsukushi Makino promises to give Seinosuke Amakusa an answer after the end of Teen of Japan. She and Ayano Kurimaki then head into the final round of the contest, which will test their qualities for motherhood.

Plot

After announcing Ayano Kurimaki and Tsukushi Makino as the finalists, Teen of Japan goes on a fifteen minute break. Ayano asks Tsukushi if she did read "that bestseller." Tsukushi has no idea what a bestseller is. Ayano calls her "lucky," as well as "wonderful" for helping Mrs. Grand. She then declares "Next time though, I won't let you win on luck alone." Seeing Ayano's confidence, Tsukushi states "I really have no business here, but I don't intend to lose either!" She recalls everyone who has helped her so far.

Seinosuke Amakusa interrupts Ayano and Tsukushi. He asks Ayano why she left her home in the United States without telling her parents. She suddenly becomes impassioned, yelling "Did you or did you not promise to marry me?" Ayano then reminds him about their childhood promise. Shocked, Seinosuke answers "But Ayano, it's her that I..." Tsukushi then promises to give him her answer after the contest. As the final round begins, Tsukushi thinks "[Ayano is] a better match for Kinsan."

People in the crowd becomes unruly, accusing Tsukushi of bribing the judges. Tsukasa Domyoji punches the loudest guy complaining. He states "If you say anything to shake her confidence, I'll kill you." On stage, Ayano says "He must truly love you to get so angry over that heckling." Twenty-one children, the round's "judges," enter. The girls are tasked with entertaining them to determine which is the better "mother." Ayano quickly adapts to the task, while Tsukushi gets off to a weak start.
