“High School Boys and the School Festival 1” is the 19th chapter of the manga.
A girl from Sanada East High stands at the entrance of Sanada North High, with two others behind her. Addressing her as ‘President’, they tell her it’s their first time in an all-boys school when she tells them to follow her inside. The president responds that their fear is why high school boys look down on them, but professes not to really know whether they did. Vowing to establish their superiority over the ‘air-headed’ high school boys, she marches loudly into the Student Council Room. Inside, they see Motoharu, Karasawa and a blond student playing cards.
Seeing the boys’ rough appearances and hostile glares at being interrupted, the girls yelp in fear and run outside, thinking they’ve mistaken a delinquent hangout for the council room. Upon seeing the ‘Student Council Room’ board outside, they go back in cautiously. This time, the boys have sprung into action, arranging tables, chairs and even tea with snacks for the visitors. The president is impressed with the welcome, and the blond student asks them who they are.
The president answers that they are from the Sanada East High’s student council. The blond student then hands them visitor passes they should have been wearing. Apologizing, the president wears hers and takes a seat, surveying the neat room around her. She thinks to herself how different it is from their own mess of a council room, and becomes agitated at the thought that high school boys seemed to be gentlemen in contrast to the indiscipline of high school girls. She yells aloud in frustration, startling everyone else.
The blond student immediately holds out cash to buy a different snack for her, but she frantically convinces him that’s not the problem. When asked what the problem was then, she mutters it’s nothing and sits down, not wanting to admit her inferiority complex. She then thinks in embarrassment that the boys would consider her behaviour weird, but they are shown to be thinking in terms of worse adjectives such as ‘dangerous’ and ‘insane’.
Suddenly, a voice is heard yelling to skip the chatter, and a chair at the far end of the room turns around to reveal another student. Addressing the blond student as ‘Vice President’, he says he invited the girls there. Revealing him to be the Student Council President, the VP expresses surprise at his presence and tells him he should have informed them beforehand. Upon being asked why he invited them, the SCP responds that the authorities wanted them to hold a joint school festival with Sanada East High.
He says he looks forward to working with his East High counterpart, but ends up addressing the wrong girl, causing the president to attack him in anger as he apologizes. She curses them for making fun of her and vows to beat them at the festival, causing the SCP to ask the VP why ‘Ringo-chan’ was so annoyed.
