Tsubasa has a new enemy: Shizuka, the King's first victim. She tried to commit suicide after being bullied on the King's orders but ended up in a wheelchair instead. Even before that, she had an insane grudge against Arisa for being ranked higher than her on test scores. She made Akira steal Arisa's notebooks so she could copy them and score higher than Arisa, but it didn't help. Akira feels guilty because he unknowingly chose to go to Arisa rather than to Shizuka when she was in trouble, and sorta kinda contributed to her ending up in a wheelchair. Tsubasa wants to get the phones back from Shizuka.

A quote from Akira: " wants revenge , no matter the cost. Even if it means working with the current King to do it." OMG, these characters. They're so frustrating. Shizuka is so obsessed that it never occurs to her that the current King might be the same person who got people to bully her. Yes, Arisa should have stepped in and done something to stop her classmates and whoever was King on her behalf, but I still think Shizuka's rage would be better directed against the entire King system, rather than just Arisa. Heck, she might as well just be angry at her entire class. They're all horrible.

This was better than the previous volume, as long as I accept that these kids are all just crazily obsessed. Shizuka at least has a bit more reason to be like this than some of the others (her horrible home life played a part - her adoptive mother was awful), but Akira was an idiot for enabling her.

In this volume, Shizuka uses her wish to damage "Arisa's" reputation, making everyone think she cheated on Midori with Akira. Super.
