Panties Labyrinth (パンツ・ラビリンス Pantsu Rabirinsu) is the 190th chapter of the Prison School manga, serialised in Weekly Young Magazine on September 14st, 2015 and published in tankobon format in Volume 20 on March 4th, 2016.
During the obstacle course of the Sports Festival, Kiyoshi realises that his "expertise" in removing underwear does not stretch to wearing it again. As students are approaching and Hana urges Kiyoshi to put back her panties, he finally finishes and discreetly exits the cardboard tank. Ameliorated by the change of underwear, Hana rejoins the race with Kiyoshi's encouragement feeling a weightless sensation. Though Hana is quickly accelerating, the boys think she still has no chance to close the gap between her and Risa. However, Anzu comments on her sudden increase in performance being even greater than that of the last year.
In her flashback from two years before, a younger Mari intercepts an avoidant Hana at the train station for their mission to decoy stalkers returning home from Hachimitsu Academy. As she was painfully aware of Mari's bad fashion sense, Hana politely refuses to to have a large "H" applique sewn onto her dress by her. After they see a young man normally approaching a woman, Hana decides to have Mari change into a black full-length dress at a fashion store expecting better results. Immediately, the dress attracts male attention to Mari's amazement and she mistakes an older man who approaches her for a stalker.
After the cardboard tank race ends, the two begin the final 100-meter sprint of the course. As Risa is told Hana is coming closer, she misinterprets Hana wearing her animal costume for her deceased cat. As she is barefoot, Risa steps on a wooden splinter while barefoot, and is forced to take it out from her feet. When she has done it, Risa realises that Hana has caught her up however and she has lost her lead. As the finish line is close, Hana realizes she can accomplish victory and do many things with Kiyoshi's help upon seeing his encouragement. However, her momentum stops abruptly when she saw her panties raised in Kiyoshi's hand unintentionally while cheering. As she realizes she wasn't wearing anything under her cat costume after all, she falls to the ground.
