Chapter 79 (
Tenma Hase prepares to move to Los Angeles, where he will represent Momonozono's new sister school. He asks Haruto Kaguragi to not tell Oto Edogawa. Haruto struggles with what to do, before delivering the news to Oto.
Tenma Hase informs his father that he wishes to transfer to Momonozono Academy's sister school to be opened in Los Angeles soon. He questions whether this is about Oto Edogawa. Tenma answers "This is for me." At work, Oto is talking about the summer festival with Arisa Konno. She asks Oto if she likes Haruto Kaguragi, though "[her] face says it all." Konno then encourages Oto to tell Haruto how she feels. Oto thanks her for always being there for her and silently resolves to tell Haruto her feelings.
Haruto goes off to see Tenma, leaving Kaito Taira to wait for him at his house. Tenma is packing, when Haruto arrives to his house. He tells Haruto that he is leaving tomorrow to go to Los Angeles and asks him not to tell Oto. Tenma feels badly about how his last encounter with Oto went, when he left her crying by herself. He reasons that he has never "[ran] away from anything" before but wishes to do it "just this once." Tenma says "It's for my sake" and asks Haruto to "Take good care of Oto."
Haruto returns home, where he relates the information he just learned to Kaito. He leaves it up to Kaito to tell Airi Maya if he wants to or not. After Kaito leaves, Haruto struggles with whether to tell Oto the rest of the night. He asks himself "What would Mr. Domyoji do?", before changing the question to "What would I, Haruto Kaguragi, do?" Having come to his decision, Haruto goes to Oto's house first thing in the morning. He brings her to a car outside and tells her about Tenma leaving. As the car drives off, he shouts "I'll be waiting for you here!"
