"On the honor of these black jackets and the Correct 5 name, we've got to get rid of those paupers that can't provide the school with donations."
Haruto's former goal for the Correct 5[src]

The Correct 5 (コレクト5 (コレクト ファイブ) Korekuto Faibu) is a group of students at Eitoku Academy. The group, led by Haruto Kaguragi, consists of Kaito Taira, Sugimaru Eibi, Airi Maya, and Issa Narumiya. They usually meet in Eitoku's "Salon". The Correct 5 also have a special uniform that only they wear.

Inspired by the F4, the Correct 5 formed in order to restore Eitoku back to its former glory. To do so, the group conducted "peasant hunts", meaning they forced the poor students to withdrawal from the school. They have since ceased these activities and are now more similar to a student council.

History

The Correct 5, made up of childhood friends Haruto Kaguragi, Airi Maya, Kaito Taira, Issa Narumiya, and Sugimaru Eibi, formed when they were still in middle school.[1] Haruto was inspired by the F4, particularly Tsukasa Domyoji. They attend the elite Eitoku Academy, which has recently suffered a significant drop in popularity. In order to help the school, the group conducted "peasant hunts". The Correct 5 located students, such as Taku Komatsubara who had not made any donations to the school, and hand them a withdrawal notice. The students then felt pressured to leave.[2] It was believed that they removed many of the "stealth commoners" by the time they forced Imabayashi to leave.[3]

Oto Edogawa was revealed to be a commoner by Airi, after she posted fliers around the school.[4] Haruto, who already had knowledge of Oto's status, was forced to consider forcing her out of Eitoku. However, he found that he could not do it when the time came. Airi decided to carry it out by herself. Oto's fiance Tenma Hase, the student president of Momonozono Academy, paid her donation, allowing her to stay.[1] Later, Haruto forgave Airi's actions, though he gave her a warning, "do it again and it [is] over."[5] After Airi locked Oto and Tenma in the basement of her father's building, Haruto ended his friendship with her. She went missing shortly after. Kaito, in particular, was worried about her and enlisted Haruto and Oto's help in finding her.[6]

After the situation with Airi was cleared up, she became friends with Oto. She also strongly advocated for Oto to begin dating Haruto.[7] Later, Megumi Nishidome, a popular model, transferred to Eitoku in order to pursue Haruto. Her transfer caused a twenty percent increase in applications.[8] Several days later, Kaito informed Haruto about a new trend known as "Eitoku hunting", in which their classmates were attacked by strangers. Kaito advised Haruto to date Megumi to increase his reputation. The school was vandalized shortly later.[9] The perpetrator behind the attacks on Eitoku students was identified to be Hitoshi Konoe, vice president of Momonozono's Student Council. Haruto, however, did not take immediate action against Konoe.[10]

Later, Haruto competed against Tenma in the "Manly Man Festival", in what Sugimaru described as "a battle between Eitoku and Momonozono".[11] The Correct 5 supported Haruto, though they did not have faith in him winning. Against all odds, Haruto won the contest by default when Tenma dropped out.[12] Following the festival, Eitoku had an upswing in new applicants. Kaito later arranged an opportunity for Tenma and Haruto to make amends. Konoe also apologized for his actions.[13] At a later date, Haruto and Tenma organized joint classes for their schools as well as a summer trip.[14] During the summer school, Haruto was stranded in the ocean for several hours. He returned to Tokyo the same night.[15] Airi had arranged a trip to Hawaii for Haruto's birthday. However, she decided to stay at the summer school so Issa, Sugimaru, and Kaito went by themselves.[16]

On Eitoku's 170th anniversary, the Correct 5, except Airi, gave a speech to the school. Afterwards, Kaito admitted his feelings to Airi, taking Issa and Sugimaru by surprise.[17] The Correct 5 were later reunited with their childhood friend, Amei Hanawa. Issa threw a welcome back party for her at his house.[18] Some days later, the rest of the group followed Haruto and Oto to Los Angeles. There they met up with Tenma again[19] and Kaito and Airi began dating.[20] After returning to Japan, they saw off Tsukushi Makino, who the became acquainted with in Los Angeles. Oto and Haruto managed to stall the plane so Tsukushi could have a moment with Tsukasa.[21] He was accompanied by the other F4 members. Later, the Correct 5 and Oto expressed utter joy at meeting the F4.[22]
