Chapter 17 (
Haruto Kaguragi frees Oto Edogawa and Tenma Hase from the basement. Angry, Haruto declares that he and Airi Maya are no longer his friend. Later, Airi goes missing and Kaito Taira enlists Oto's help to find her.
Oto Edogawa finds herself locked in a basement with Tenma Hase. Tenma reveals that a student, Airi Maya, tricked him by telling him that Oto was in danger. A wave of relief washes over Tenma's face as he registers that Oto in okay. Meanwhile, Airi meets Haruto Kaguragi at the cafe. Haruto asks about Oto, but Airi only tells him that she "went off somewhere". She brings up an old memory about Haruto crying. Airi tells him she prefers the crying Haruto to the current "Correct 5 Haruto".
Tenma asks Oto about why Airi did this to them, though she has no idea. Oto looks around the room for some sort of tool and trips on a box. Tenma tries to help her, but ends up falling on top of her. Airi smirks as she watches surveillance footage of the two via her phone. Airi shows Haruto and tells him that "[Oto] doesn't care for [him]". He angrily demands their location, which makes Airi happy because "[she]'d rather die than be ignored". Haruto leaves, telling her to "never show [her] face to [him] again."
After Tenma quickly gets up, Oto realizes that this is the first time they have been in a "cramped" place together. Oto apologizes for getting him involved in the situation. Tenma promises that he "will always come" if she is in trouble. Haruto enters the room, having had the police unlock the door. Oto appears concerned, when Haruto tells her that he and Airi are no longer friends. On her way home with Tenma, Oto recalls a story about a carnivorous plant that reminds her of Airi. Two days later, Kaito Taira visits Oto asking about Airi, who is missing.
