When class 2-D's Shuuichi Morita loses control, Kiri's action makes him throw the chair towards Mimori. Sasuke tells Kiri to cooperate, but Kiri refuses to follow Sasuke's orders. Later, Himeko hangs out with Kiri who shares his story about Kihara who was a victim of Kutsuwa, a teacher from his old middle school. When Kiri's old teacher comes back to Kaimei High School and bullies Himeko, Kiri Kato loses his composure.
Can Bossun and the gang stop Kiri Kato from crossing the line in his quest for justice?
When a rowdy student goes out of control, Mimori tries to calm down the person while Tsubaki and Bossun stand by. Then, Kiri appears on top of the student, and the student get enraged. He throws a chair which is about to hit Mimori. In the nick of time, Tsubaki blocks it. Later, Kiri asks Tsubaki if he is going to reprimand him, and Tsubaki asks Kiri why he joins the student council and tells Kiri should cooperate. However, Kiri does not want to follow orders. Later, Hime throws a Pelollipop Candy at Kiri who catches it. She asks Kiri to hang out with her because she used to be a loner. Then, Kiri shares a story from his middle school.
Back then, Kiri asks his teacher to help Kihara who was bullied. Yet, Kiri finds out that Kihara has transferred to different schools and that the teacher states that victims of bullies are the ones to blame. Also, Kiri learns that the teacher is behind the bullying. He explains to Himeko that he joins the student council to make a peaceful academy. Himeko tells Kiri that Sasuke is doing the same thing. Next day, a teacher from the same middle school that Kiri goes to, Kutsuwa, tries to press down hard on Bossun's head because of Bossun's hat. In class, Switch debriefs about them about the new teacher. In Kiri's classroom, Kiri is shock that Kutsuwa is his new teacher. Later, Himeko walks from class, and Kutsuwa checks out Himeko's skirt. Then, he pulls Himeko's hair and states he knows that Himeko is Onizuka. Meanwhile, Kiri watches the whole situation and learns that Himeko is Onizuka. He grits his teeth when he sees Himeko crying a bit.
Outside of school, Bossun and his Sket Dan crew sees graffiti on the building, and Switches goes to the website, YouDoga. Bossun sees Kutsuwa on the video who is tied up. Switch brings up Kiri, and they see Kiri on the video. Kiri takes away the blindfold, and Sasuke, Saaya, and the rest of Kaimei Student council arrives. They watch Kiri taking away the blindfold, and Kiri tells Kutsuwa to take back what he said to Himeko. Kiri does not forgive to Kutsuwa for what he has done to Kihara. Chuma, Remi, and Kanegi arrive to Bossun's location, and Tsubaki tells them that they can handle it. Bossun uses his concentration mode to figure out Kiri's real location. When Bossun goes over the surroundings and how Kiri cannot go too far with an adult, Himeko realizes the location. Sasuke goes to help Kiri, and Chuma tells Bossun to go with Sasuke. Chuma wonders if he gets fired, but Remi reassures him.
In the park, Sasuke tells Kiri that it is not too late, and he reasons with Kiri with some of his experiences of meeting new people who changed him. Kiri decides to throw away his armband and announces that he is done with the student council. However, Tsubaki catches the arm band and tells Kiri that he will not let Kiri do this. Before Kiri could beat up Kutsuwa, Bossun persuades Kiri to not do because he states that Kiri is doing this for Himeko since Kiri couldn't help Kihara. Kiri is about to stab Kutsuwa with a kunai, but he cuts the ropes. Then, Kutsuwa tells Kiri to apologize and talks trash about Kiri, Himeko, and everyone. Bossun strikes Kutsuwa for his words, but since Bossun hit a teacher, he is suspended for two weeks.

Manga and Anime Differences
- In the manga, Sasuke already knew about Kiri's past with a teacher who bullied Kihara from Himeko. Whereas in the anime, Sasuke did not know, and the flashbacks for Kiri occurs in this episode for the first time.
- In the anime, there's no scene where Bossun overhears Himeko talking with Kiri in chapter 157 which leads him (Bossun) to a misunderstanding about Himeko and Kiri's relationship.
- Scene Altercations: In the anime, Sasuke protects Mimori from the flying chair by using his body as a shield. Whereas in the manga, Mimori gets hit by the chair, and Sasuke punches Kiri later on for endangering Mimori.
- Daisy, Hani, and Mimori only appeared in the last SOLITUDE chapter. Compared to the anime, Mimori is present at the beginning while the rest of the student council arrive during Kiri's abduction of Kutsuwa.
- Characters that only appeared in the anime version: Saaya, Remi, and Shinzo.
