- "When something happens, wishing the F4 were still here, or say it's the Correct 5's fault, or that it's someone else's fault is wrong. It's your school too, isn't it?"
- —Oto Edogawa to her fellow students
Chapter 33 (
When Eitoku Academy is vandalized, Oto Edogawa and Correct 5 band together to clean up the damage. Oto later promises to meet Airi Maya after school. While waiting, she is approached by three men with spray paint.
Haruto Kaguragi stares at the vandalized gates of Eitoku Academy in horror. The other students begin whispering, saying things like that "Eitoku is no longer what it once was when the F4 were here." Oto Edogawa pushes her a way through the crowd with a mop and bucket. She is annoyed by the students attitudes, telling that "it's your school too." Spurred by Oto's words, the Correct 5 begin cleaning the graffiti. The other students inevitably join them. Kaito Taira tells Haruto that "[they] have to do something."
At Momonozono Academy, Hitoshi Konoe informs Tenma Hase about a student council meeting. A student makes a snide comment about Eitoku and Tenma reproaches him. Tenma begins the meeting and the same student asks another about Tenma's girlfriend. She had saw her the other day and expresses her disappointment about Oto being "just an ordinary girl". Hitoshi yells at them for chatting while Tenma was speaking. He promises to "reprimand them" later and reminds them that "student council members can be easily replaced."
Airi Maya raves to Oto about her earlier actions. She asks to spend time together after school, but Oto tells her that she has to work. In response, Airi tells her that she will pay her to hang out. Oto refuses to "take money from friends", which makes Airi so happy that she jumps on Oto's back. She declares that she only wants Oto to remain her friend and no longer cares about hers and Haruto's love lives. Oto ends up promising to meet at a cafe. After school, Oto is approached by three strangers, while she waits for Airi.
