Not to be confused with Chapter 96 of Boys Over Flowers Season 2.

"Thinking back it was my fault that I got duped by Junpei. But Tsukasa is still the source. I don't feel obligated to him for saving me, but after seeing him getting beaten up and his ribs broken. Maybe I can't run away from him anymore."
Tsukushi Makino

The ninety-six chapter (第96話 () ) of Yoko Kamio's Boys Over Flowers was published in Margaret No.12 on May 20, 1996.[1] The chapter was followed by the ninety-seventh installment the same month. It was subsequently collected into the fifteenth volume of the series.

Tsukushi Makino receives a bad haircut from her mother, but Rui Hanazawa manages to even it up. Later, Tsukasa Domyoji invites her to his birthday party. She worries about a present to give him and settles on something homemade.

Plot

Tsukushi Makino thinks about Tsukasa Domyoji, realizing "Maybe I can't run away from him anymore." Her mother, meanwhile, is cutting her hair. Tsukushi's thoughts turn into angel and devil versions of herself. The devil is in favor of her dating Tsukasa, even if she does not feel the same way about him. However, the angel calls it "unfair" for her to pretend she likes him. The two apparitions begin bickering, leading Tsukushi to shout "Stop it, already!" She then looks at her hair and laments "Oh no, it's awful!"

At Tsukasa's house, the F4 greet him when he returns from the hospital. Sojiro Nishikado jokes "You heal as quickly as a dog." Tsukasa instantly becomes annoyed, remembering Tsukushi comparing him to a dog earlier. He tells his friends "You guys can't possibly understand how it feels," before storming off to his bedroom. The following morning, Tsukushi arrives at school. Her hair earns laughter from Sojiro and Akira Mimasaka. Rui Hanazawa offers to even it out for her.

Tsukasa finds Tsukushi with Rui at the emergency exit and glares at them. She calls him an "idiot" for suggesting they were "sneaking around." Rui departs after finishing her hair. Tsukasa informs Tsukushi of his upcoming birthday and invites her to his party. He also plans to introduce her to his mother. When she tells Yuki Matsuoka about it, she says "Just like you're his fiancée." Tsukushi asks for gift ideas and Yuki suggests something homemade. She ends up baking cookies for him.
