We Are (Not) Alone is the 178th chapter of the Prison School manga, serialised in Weekly Young Magazine on June 1st, 2015 and published in tankobon format in Volume 18 on August 6th, 2015.


Inside the boys' dorm room, Hana's urine has begun to flow over Kiyoshi's head. Under the onslaught of the liquid over his naked body, Kiyoshi begins a internal monologue in his mental state while it starts to leak into the bedroom carpet. Under the futon, Kiyoshi likens the fluids to holy "tears" that bear fruit as divine knowledge. The sensation of intense heat from the fluids is described by Kiyoshi as melting his soul into darkness. Abruptly, he remembers the four-leaf clovers they once gathered and questions himself as to whether she still collects them. When Kiyoshi's monologue continues, he makes reference to Orihime and Hikiboshi's cosmic meeting at the day of Tanabata. A number of deja-vu romantic memories of the two together follow from the mentally silent Kiyoshi, involving the two playing at the beach together, noticing each other at a park and riding a motorcycle together. At this point, a urine-covered and brooding Kiyoshi has left from below the futons and Hana collects her bag to leave with the floor covered in the fluid. Angered at the extent of her revenge, Kiyoshi demands to know whether a continually silent Hana is satisfied with the outcome of events. Mentally disturbed by the act of being urinated on, a distraught Kiyoshi repeatedly tells her that his trauma has taken away any reason to live. As if in answer to his questioning, Hana returns and leans into the bed while kissing him.



  • Kiyoshi's monologue has cultural references to romantic drama anime feature film 5 Centimeters Per Second.
  • In his monologue, these references stem from his relationship with Chiyo and the potentially catalytic involvement of Hana in its current distance.
  • Throughout the whole monologue, Kiyoshi's mouth appears closed which implies that he did not ingest any of the urine.
