End Card

Monobear opens the second floor to his students. Naegi and the rest of the students search for clues. Byakuya find some obscene books about murders. When Byakuya rejects Chihiro's friendship, Chihiro gets disappointed. Mondo tries to beat some sense into Byakuya, but he gets stopped by the others. In the library, Touko watches Byakuya reading a book with her mouth drooling. Once Byakuya kicks out Touko out of the room, Naegi follows Touko. Touko gets in heat over Byakuya and asks Naegi if she and Byakuya make a great pair. Elsewhere, Naegi finds Mondo and Kiyotaka fighting and then, settling their disputes in a steam room. Next day, Naegi finds Kiyotaka and Mondo getting along just fine. Nearby, Celestia breaks her tea cup and demands Hifumi to redo it.

Next day, Monobear tells everyone that he is bored, and he decides to threaten everyone by revealing their most embarrassing secret.
