Akutsu forces Hikaru, a classmate who defended Kazumi, to be the chore member. Akutsu refuses Kazumi's request to forgive Hikaru, saying that Akutsu only talks to the two students with the highest grades in the class.
At the school's anniversary celebration, Akutsu's class will perform a dance. Akutsu tells Hisako, who has no sense of rhythm, that she does not have to come to the performance. Kazumi, outraged, suggests that they all boycott the event.
