Human Failure (人間失格 Ningen Shikkaku) is the 28th chapter of the Prison School manga, serialised in Weekly Young Magazine on September 26th, 2011 and published in tankobon format in Volume 3 on January 6th, 2012. The title is likely a reference to the famous japanese novel of the same name by Osamu Dazai.


After overeating at the sumo tournament & his date with Chiyo, a romantically hopeful Kiyoshi goes to the toilet & is mistaken as a prisoner by wrestlers there because of his striped overalls. Outide the toilets, Chiyo is holding her uniform in shock, unable to explain how Kiyoshi might have gotten her uniform to herself. When Kiyoshi returns, Chiyo leaves in disgust and he finds his bag open and searched. When he reverses the blazer, he finds her nametag on it as well and realises that she found it while searching the bag to his horror. With the date a failure, a dejected Kiyoshi leaves to the Ryougoku train station ahead of time.

Meanwhile at the sports ground, Shingo is complaining to Gakuto that he has an easy job and Kiyoshi is skipping work while the others have a hard job. Though Gakuto tells Shingo that Kiyoshi is in the toilet because of his haemorrhoids, Shingo enters the toilets to check for him to Gakuto's horror. To compund his problems, a patrolling Meiko commands Kiyoshi to leave the empty toilet cubicle. Meanwhile in the Chairman's office, Mari and her father discuss the imminent release of the boys in a week. However, they are both suddenly distracted by a new email on their phones. At the toilets, Gakuto is unable to activate the speakers to relay the recording and is left without options as Meiko kicks the door down.
