[Episode 3 Title Card]

[Setting: 1st Year D-Class Room]

[Most of the students were celebrating their achievement.]

Unnamed D-Class Student 1: We owe it all to you Kushida-chan!

Unnamed D-Class Student 2: Yeah, you really save us this time.

Kikyō Kushida: Oh, gosh... I didn't do anything...

Kanji Ike: Angel... Kushida-chan, you're our angel!

Suzune Horikita: Ayanokōji-kun. What did you exactly do?

(Opening Song)


[3 Days Before the Test]

[Setting: Near the Tennis Courtyard]

Ken Sudō: Sounds great to me! Bring it on!

[There seems to be a commotion. Kiyotaka Ayanokōji noticed the noise and decided to check out what's happening]

Daichi Ishizaki: What era did you step out of with that thug act? So lame.

Kakeru Ryūen: You are a pathetically ugly creature.

Ken Sudō: Say that again!

[Daichi Ishizaki and Kyogo Komiya wind up against Ken Sudō to stop him from inflicting offensive attack to Kakeru Ryūen]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji (Monologue): Kushida asked me to invite him to her study group, but

Ken Sudō: Let me go!

Episode 003-01

Kakeru Ryūen: I can't wait to see how many from your class will be expelled after the upcoming test. I bet the first will be...

[Kakeru Ryūen pointed his finger to Ken Sudō's eyeballs but then he poked his forehead instead]

Ken Sudō: I hope you've said your prayers.

Honami Ichinose: Both sides, stop right there!

Ken Sudō: The hell do you want?! Stay out of this!

Episode 003-02

Honami Ichinose: As a student of this school, I cannot allow violence to pass under my watch. If you insist on fighting regardless, I'm going to call security.

Kakeru Ryūen: Ichinose, this isn't a fight. We're the victims here.

Honami Ichinose: Are you sure? It looked to me like you goaded him into it, Ryūen-kun. If you keep this up, I'll have to report this to the school.

Kakeru Ryūen: Ha. Hey, monkey.

Ken Sudō: What the ...

Kakeru Ryūen: I think you'll make a nice plaything.

[Kakeru Ryūen and his gang walks out.]

Ken Sudō: Hey, you running away? Hey, you! I told you to-

Episode 003-03

[Kiyotaka Ayanokōji glances at Kakeru Ryūen a bit and then proceeded on stoping Ken Sudō's call for revenge]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Sudō.

Honami Ichinose: Listen up. Don't let Ryūen-kun bait you, okay?

Ken Sudō: You shut the hell up.

Honami Ichinose (Shouting to Tennis Players): Sorry for the scare! It's okay now!

Tennis Players: Ichinose-san, thanks!

Honami Ichinose: No more causing trouble for others, okay? That's all!

Ken Sudō: Damn it!

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Sudō, do you have some time now? Kushida's studying in the-

Ken Sudō: Pass. I've got a club.

[Ken Sudō gets his bags up and went away.]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Ike and Yamauchi are both in on it now. Hey ... will you be all right on your own?

Ken Sudō: Scrambling at this point won't get me anywhere.


[Setting: Basketball Court]

Unnamed Basketball Club Player: Sudō!

[The ball wasn't received well after it was passed to Ken Sudō]

Unnamed Basketball Club Player: What's wrong with you?

Ken Sudō: Sorry.

Episode 003-04

[Suzune Horikita is seen observing his activities in his club.]


[Setting: Near the School Building Entrance]

Suzune Horikita: Sudō-kun. Might I have a minute? Are you planning to leave school for good?

Ken Sudō: Give it a rest.

Suzune Horikita: You don't mind not being able to play basketball anymore?

[Suzune Horikita goes in front of him and offered him a notebook]

Suzune Horikita: I've summarized the main topics from class in this notebook.

[Ken Sudō looks at the notebook and to Suzune Horikita in such dumbfounded way.]

Suzune Horikita: I'm teaching you for my sake. You should study for yours. That way you can continue playing basketball at this school.


[2 Days Before the Test]

[Setting: High School Cafeteria]

Kikyō Kushida: Ayanokōji-kun, I think this is the first time you've ever invited me somewhere! You must have a reason, right?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Can you promise you won't breathe a word of this to anyone?

Kikyō Kushida: Sure!

[Kiyotaka Ayanokōji quickly looks at the person at the counter]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Let's go.

Kikyō Kushida: Ok!

[There, a lone upperclassman is sitting on a blank table row.]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Excuse me. You're an upperclassman, right?

Unnamed 3-D Student: Ah!

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: I'm Ayanokōji from Class 1-D. You're in D, too, right?

Unnamed 3-D Student: Yeah

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: The free stuff must taste pretty bad, huh?

Unnamed 3-D Student: What do you want?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: I want to consult with you about something. Of course, I'll make it worth your while.

Unnamed 3-D Student: Consult?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Do you have the questions from your first midterm two years ago?

Unnamed 3-D Student: Huh?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: I want you to give them to me.

Unnamed 3-D Student: Ugh. Why are you coming to me about this?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Why else? Those low in points would be more likely to make a trade. And I saw you eating that foul-looking wild vegetable lunch set.

Unnamed 3-D Student: How much will you pay?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Ten thousand points. That's my upper limit.

Unnamed 3-D Student: There's risk in this for me, too. I'd need 30,000 points, at the very least.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: I'm afraid that's not possible.

Unnamed 3-D Student: No deal, then.

Kikyō Kushida: Wait a minute! A friend of ours might be expelled. Please!

[The Unnamed 3-D Student was stunned to Kikyō Kushida's charm.]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Ten thousand.

Unnamed 3-D Student: Twenty-five thousand.

[The Unnamed 3-D Student was caught looking at Kikyō Kushida's bosoms.]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Ten thousand.

Unnamed 3-D Student: Twenty thousand

[The Unnamed 3-D Student was still under Kikyō Kushida's spell.]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Ten thousand.

Unnamed 3-D Student: Fifteen thousand. I can't possibly go any lower.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Very well. It's a deal. In exchange, please include your quizzes from the first term.

Unnamed 3-D Student: Okay.

Kikyō Kushida: Thank you so much!


[Setting: Outside, A park with fountain at its center]

Kikyō Kushida: But do you think it'll be okay?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Don't worry. It's within school rules.

Kikyō Kushida: I suppose so... but using old test questions feels like cheating to me.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: I disagree. Seeing his reaction confirmed to me that trading old questions between students is nothing unusual.

Kikyō Kushida: But they're still just old questions. They might not have anything to do with this year's test.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: It may not contain exactly the same questions, but I don't think they'll be entirely different.

Kikyō Kushida: Really?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: No need to worry. Think of it as insurance against the expulsion of Sudō and the others.

[Kiyotaka Ayanokōji receives a message notification]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: They're here. Starting with a quiz. It's the same. Right down to the letter.

Kikyō Kushida: Wow! What about the midterm, then?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: It's likely to have the same questions.

Kikyō Kushida: Let's show it to everyone, not just Sudō and the others!

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: No, we won't show it to them yet.

Kikyō Kushida: Why not?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Say we reveal the questions the day before the test. What will our classmates do then?

Episode 003-05

Kikyō Kushida: They'll work desperately to memorize the questions!

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Precisely.

Kikyō Kushida: Ayanokōji-kun, are you actually sharper than you let on?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: I'm just cunning, that's all.

Kikyō Kushida: Hmmm.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Hey, I'd like you to do me a favor. Could you tell them you're the one who got them the questions?

Kikyō Kushida: Sure ... but are you okay with that?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: I don't want to stand out unnecessarily. And I think our classmates trust you more.

Kikyō Kushida: Okay. If that's what you want.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Thanks a lot.

Kikyō Kushida: I guess this will be our little secret, then!


[A Day Before the Test]

[Setting: 1st Year D-Class Room]

Kikyō Kushida: Hang on, everyone. There's something I want to give you before you go.

Kei Karuizawa: Test questions? Did you make these?

Kikyō Kushida: Actually, they're questions from an earlier test. A third-year student gave them to me last night.

Kanji Ike: Past questions?

Kikyō Kushida: Yeah. He said pretty much the same questions have appeared on the test the last two years. So I bet they'll be useful on our test tomorrow, too!

Kanji Ike: Are you kidding me?

[Some students were really happy.]

Haruki Yamauchi: Heck, I didn't have to run myself ragged studying all this time.

Ken Sudō: This is great!

Kikyō Kushida: Kōenji-kun, here.

Rokusuke Kōenji: I beg your pardon, but I need no such thing. And I have a date to get to. Now, if you'll excuse me.

Kikyō Kushida: Ah

Suzune Horikita: Kushida-san.

Kikyō Kushida: I know you might not need it, but ...

[Kikyō Kushida hands her a copy.]

Suzune Horikita: May I ask you a question?

Kanji Ike: Kushida-chan, thank you!

Hideo Sotomura: I shall live forever in your debt!


[Test Results Announcement Day]

[Setting: 1st Year D-Class Room]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Kushida-san is well suited to the role.

Suzune Horikita: Not much of a compliment.

Sae Chabashira: To be honest, I'm impressed. I never thought you'd be able to get such high scores. I acknowledge your efforts. However, you got a failing score, Sudō.

[Ken Sudō's score was 39.]

Ken Sudō: Huh?


[Eyecatcher] Tokyo Metropolitan Advance Nurturing High School

At this school, any student who fails to meet the required score on a midterm or final exam will be expelled. The threshold for expulsion is 50% of the average score of the rest of the class in any given subject.


[Setting: 1st Year D-Class Room]

Ken Sudō: What? You're kidding! How did I fail?

Sae Chabashira: The threshold for failure on this midterm test was 40. The average score on the midterm test was 79.6. Divided by two ... Since we round that up, you needed a score of 40 or higher to pass.

Ken Sudō: Forty.

Sae Chabashira: We only knew each other a short time, but I appreciate your efforts. I'll issue your notice of expulsion after class.

Ken Sudō: I'm gonna be expelled?

Yōsuke Hirata: Wait a minute! Isn't there any way to save him?

Sae Chabashira: A failing score means you're finished.

Kikyō Kushida: Isn't there anything we can do? We can't let Sudō-kun be expelled.

Episode 003-06

Sae Chabashira: Rules are rules. Give it up.

[Most students were disheartened to what they just heard.]

Sae Chabashira: Homeroom is now over. Sudō, I'll be waiting in the staff office after classes.

Kikyō Kushida: Hey, are we just going to accept this? Sudō-kun is going to be expelled.

[Kiyotaka Ayanokōji stands up]

Kikyō Kushida: Ayanokōji-kun?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Sorry. Gotta hit the restroom.

[Suzune Horikita gazes at Kiyotaka Ayanokōji upon his way out.]

[Kiyotaka Ayanokōji closes the classroom door. He intends to talk with Ms. Sae Chabashira]

SCENE 10Edit

[Setting: Rooftop]

Sae Chabashira: What is it? The class is going to start soon, you know.

Episode 003-07

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Teacher, may I ask you a question?

Sae Chabashira: A question?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: In Japan, right now, do you think society is equal?

Sae Chabashira: That's quite a question. Is there any point in me answering that?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: It's important. Could you answer, please?

Sae Chabashira: From where I stand, I'd say .. society is certainly not equal. Not a bit.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: I agree. The word "equal" is a lie. But we humans are thinking creatures.

Sae Chabashira: What's your point?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: That rules require, at least, the appearance of equal application.

Sae Chabashira: Oh?

[Kiyotaka Ayanokōji shows his phone to Sae Chabashira]

Sae Chabashira: What's that for?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Sell me one point to add to Sudō's English test score.

[Sae Chabashira laughs at the cunning attitude of Kiyotaka Ayanokōji]

Sae Chabashira: You're an interesting one. You want me to sell you test points?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: You told us this on the first day.

[Flashback Begin]

Sae Chabashira: To buy things, you'll use points stored in the school's official computer system. At this school, you can buy anything using points.

[Flashback End]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Rules must be applied equally, even on this midterm test.

Sae Chabashira: I see. Your idea is indeed plausible.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Then-

Sae Chabashira: However, that doesn't mean you can afford it.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: How much, then?

Sae Chabashira: Let me see ... If you can give me 100,000 points right here and now, I'll sell it to you.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: That's cruel, Teacher.

Sae Chabashira: That's part of the rules, too.

Suzune Horikita: I'll pay too. We don't know what penalty might be enacted on a class that loses students to expulsion. I've determined there may be considerable merit in keeping him around.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Horikita...

Sae Chabashira: Hah. I knew you people would be interesting. Very well. I'll sell you Sudō's test point. You can let him know his expulsion has been rescinded yourselves.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: You're sure about this?

Sae Chabashira: I agreed to sell it for 100,000 points. I don't have a choice. In the history of this school, no Class D has ever advanced to a higher tier. Do you still intend to struggle for it?

Suzune Horikita: I don't know how he feels but I will ascend to a higher class.

Sae Chabashira: And how do defective like you, abandoned by the school, expect to aim for the top?

Suzune Horikita: If I may be so bold, defective merchandise can often be fixed with the slightest of alterations. That is my feeling on the matter.

Sae Chabashira: I look forward to seeing it, then. As your teacher, I'll watch over you warmly.

SCENE 11Edit

[Setting: Ranking Board Corridor]

[There's a board at the corridor showing all the total points that each class at each year level possess.]

Kōhei Katsuragi: Class C is gaining. Must be Ryūen at work again. He's a dangerous man.

Arisu Sakayanagi: Isn't it boring?

[Arisu Sakayanagi walks away with her cane.]

SCENE 12Edit

[Setting: Outside, A park with fountain at its center]

[Sunset. Kiyotaka Ayanokōji looking at his point sitting beside Suzune Horikita, reading a book, on a bench.]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Class A has 1,004 points. By comparison, we have measly 87 points. Honestly, aiming for Class A feels like a pipe dream.

Suzune Horikita: I won't give up. I will advance to Class A.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: I see.

Suzune Horikita: What?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Well, I owe you one. Thanks for saving Sudō.

Suzune Horikita: Didn't I tell you? I did that for my own sake. Nothing more.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Hmmm? Is that really the only reason?

Suzune Horikita: What are you implying?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: You knew Sudo's English midterm score would be borderline, so you intentionally lowered your score, didn't you? That's a very nice thing to do for someone you once pushed away.

Suzune Horikita: I told you, I did it to get into Class A.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Yeah, okay. Whatever you say.

[Kiyotaka Ayanokōji stands up]

Suzune Horikita: Hey. I don't like your attitude, Ayanokōji-kun.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Eh?

[Suzune Horikita is grasping something from her bag.]

Suzune Horikita: To regret in suffering, or to regret in despair ...

[Suzune Horikita stands up with a compass on her right hand.]

Suzune Horikita: Which would you prefer?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji (Monologue): "I don't want either," would be my answer ... but what's with the compass--

[For some reason, Suzune Horikita stabs him]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Ow.

SCENE 13Edit

[Setting: Dorm]

[In Ayanokōji's room, there, Kiyotaka Ayanokōji is seen sitting on a desk chair, Suzune Horikita and Kikyō Kushida sitting on a bed across him, while Ken Sudō, Haruki Yamauchi and Kanji Ike eating snacks laid on the floor.]

Ayanokōji's Guests: Cheers!

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Haaah~!

Ken Sudō: Hey, why the long face?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: I have no objection to the celebration party, and I am taking part ... but why is it in my room?

Haruki Yamauchi: But man, that was close! If Kushida-chan hadn't gotten those old test questions, Ike and Sudō would've been out of a mile!

Kanji Ike: Huh? You just barely passed too.

Haruki Yamauchi: I just haven't gotten serious yet. Sudō, you still failed, even with the old test!

Ken Sudō: Shut up! I can't help that I dozed off!

Kikyō Kushida: Hey, Ayanokōji-kun!

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Yes?

Kikyō Kushida: How did you get them to rescind Sudō-kun's expulsion?

[The 3 Idiots of D-Class stopped their idiot talk as they are seemed to be interested in Ayanokōji's answer.]

[He sits silently for a while and looks at Suzune.]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Horikita had a talk with the school.

[Kikyō Kushida gazes at Suzune Horikita, who is a little shocked]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: She said you can't expel someone without explanation just because they got a failing score.

Suzune Horikita: W-Wait a--

Kikyō Kushida: You did that, Horikita-san?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: I've never seen her so serious about anything.

[Suzune Horikita is a little confused on what was Kiyotaka Ayanokōji is planning.]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: It sure was incredible. She threw out all these accusations, and not one teacher could fight her.

Kanji Ike: You're kidding! Horikita-chan, that's amazing!

Haruki Yamauchi: I guess we had the wrong idea about you!

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Aren't you glad, Sudō?

Ken Sudō: Why would you do that for me?

Suzune Horikita: I merely acted for my own benefit.

[Kikyō Kushida mood turned a little serious. She's annoyed on how her achievements got trampled by what Suzune Horikita did for Ken Sudō]

Kanji Ike: Haha! Wow, beauty and dedication!

Haruki Yamauchi: Of course, I knew the whole time!

SCENE 14Edit

[Setting: Dorm]

[Some time passed by.]

[Only Kiyotaka Ayanokōji and Kikyō Kushida are left in the dorm. Both of them are cleaning up each of their own mess.]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Thanks for helping me out.

Kikyō Kushida: I should be thank you for letting us use your room.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: No big deal.

Kikyō Kushida: Ayanokōji-kun ...

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Yes?

Kikyō Kushida: Do you like girls like Horikita-san?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Eh?

Kikyō Kushida: I always see you together. All the girls in class are talking about it.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Horikita is my friend. Actually, she's just my neighbor.

Kikyō Kushida: I see. I'm going back to my room.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Sure.

Kikyō Kushida: Well, good night!

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: ... night ..

[Kikyō Kushida walks out.]

[Kiyotaka Ayanokōji notices Kikyō Kushida's phone being left on the bed.]

[Kiyotaka Ayanokōji follows her trails to give it back until the elevator and noticed something strange.]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji (Monologue): I thought the girls were on the upper floors ...

SCENE 15Edit

[Setting: Outside the Dorm (Boulevard)]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji (Monologue): Where's she going at this hour?

[Kiyotaka Ayanokōji follows Kikyō Kushida to a boulevard. He hid behind a bush near him.]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji (Monologue): I don't even need to be hiding, really ...

Kikyō Kushida (With condescending tone): What a pain ... you think you're so great just because you're pretty ...

Kikyō Kushida (Loud Voice): I hate you!

[Kikyō Kushida is kicking the rails that fence the boulevard from the sea.]

Kikyō Kushida (Loud Voice): I swear, I hate you, hate you, hate you! Just die, Horikita! I hate you. I hate you! Stupid cow!

[Kikyō Kushida's phone beeps. Kikyō Kushida turns around and faces the bush where Kiyotaka Ayanokōji is hiding.]

Kikyō Kushida: What? Is someone there?

[Kiyotaka Ayanokōji moves out from where he is hiding.]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: It's me. Ayanokōji.

[Kikyō Kushida rushes towards him]

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: You forgot your cell pho-

Kikyō Kushida: Did you hear?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: If I said I didn't, would you believe me?

[Kikyō Kushida leans forward to Kiyotaka Ayanokōji with intimidating look.]

Kikyō Kushida: If you tell anyone about this, you'll pay.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: How, exactly?

Kikyō Kushida: I'll tell everyone you tried to rape me.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: That would be a false accusation.

[Kikyō Kushida holds his hands to position it in a way it gropes her left breast.]

Kikyō Kushida: Oh no. It's not a false accusation. Your fingerprints are right there. See? There's proof. I'm serious.

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: I understand. Let me go, please.

Kikyō Kushida: You hear me? If you betray me, you'll pay.

[Kiyotaka Ayanokōji reminisces the times he saw Kikyō Kushida's good side.]

Kikyō Kushida: Ayanokōji-kun. I want to ask you just one question. Can you promise me, right now, that you won't tell anyone what you saw?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji: Yeah.

Kikyō Kushida: Very well.

[Kikyō Kushida turns around.]

Kikyō Kushida: I'll believe in you.

[Kikyō Kushida took a deep breath and changed back to her friendly-self.]

Kikyō Kushida: Okay! I guess we've got another secret, huh?

Kiyotaka Ayanokōji (Monologue): Hey, Kushida ... tell me ... which is the real you?
