Gakuto and Kiyoshi inadvertently get a horrified Shingo to change teams for the event when he sees them showering together and assumes they are homosexual. The next day, Kiyoshi also discovers a drain leading from the sports ground to the waste disposal area. When Meiko's heel stabs him between the buttocks, the boys assume that he has haemorrhoids. In order to obtain a recording for a diversion, Gakuto defecates inside their IT lesson within a computer classroom full of girls.

He reveals Jo's ant hobby to them & the USC to organize an incident involving the ants. The next day, some crows "attack" his ants in the courtyard and the USC members prevent him from protecting the ants. However, Jo attempts to stab Mari with a wooden knife which Kiyoshi intercepts.

|Shingo begins regularly going to the games arcade during his errands for the USC where he confronts second year Anzu over a fighting game. When he is asked to procure intel on the boys, he reveals a toy blade that he discovered in the toilets which Meiko uses in a plot to prove Gakuto's complicity in Kiyoshi's breakout. Having traced his figurine to Gakuto's Akihabara convention, Meiko confronts him and attempts to crush the figure to force his confession. However, he smashes the figurine to thwart her and apologises to Kiyoshi for ignoring their bullying. When Gakuto admits his strategic role in the breakout to the boys, the other boys forgive him against Shingo's advice and they notice the latter's absences with Meiko.

|08||The Diary of Andre (アンドレの日記)||August 29, 2015|
|A reclusive and unhygienic Andre is mentally and physically broken. Though Kiyoshi shows concern for Shingo, Meiko sends him on his prison leave and he goes to watch The Grapes of Wrath with Anzu. However, they leave the cinema as the movie is a historical realist film rather than a horror movie. At the courtyard, Mayumi and Chiyo send a message to Kiyoshi hidden in the pieces of their boardgame which he fails to decipher. However, Gakuto quickly deciphers it as an expulsion warning in the baths while Andre was lured into the courtyard by the USC. When Andre sees Meiko beyond the courtyard's wire fence, he destroys it to result in a second breakout with the boys unable to stop him. Though Anzu confesses to being a USC spy sent to delay Shingo after he tells her the truth of his treachery, he fails to return on time for his curfew to result in the third breakout. The USC celebrate the success of DTO, with the Chairman pressured by the USC and faculty to exclude them.|
|09||Full of Bodily Fluids (体液がいっぱい)||September 5, 2015|
|The boys decide to recover email evidence of DTO from the guard office computer to prevent their imminent expulsions.

When Meiko is in the corridor next to the mess hall of the Prison Block, the boys provocate her into the contest but fail to steal her keys. Though Gakuto is quickly defeated by Meiko, Kiyoshi puts up a better struggle until he loses to the distraction of her nipple. After Shingo's decisive defeat, Jo also suffers an instant loss and is tossed against the wall. With six full minutes left, Andre finally challenges her and holds his own against Meiko due to a long hair on his nipple distracting her. As a result, she forces a victory by closing her eyes and overpowering a weakened Andre. At the same time, Gakuto returns having only recovered the data but failing to retrieve it. To their regret, the boys realize that their imminent expulsions were inevitable.|
|10||It's a Bum-derful Life (素晴らしき尻哉、人生！)||September 12, 2015|
|The boys are broken and lose the will to fight their imminent expulsions. After Meiko gives the boys withdrawal forms to sign, Kiyoshi proposes that the boys make an appeal to the Chairman for an extension before their expulsion. Though Meiko rips up their individual appeal requests, the Chairman recieves the appeal request disguised on Kiyoshi's expulsion form. However, the Chairman asks the boys to solve his riddle on whether buttocks or breasts are superior as a condition. Though the boys initially assume otherwise, Kiyoshi chooses buttocks from his knowledge of the Chairman's ass-fetish. After a mental struggle, an inspired Kiyoshi uses human evolutionary theory to prove the superiority of the ass. To an eavesdropping Meiko's shock, the Chairman accepts their appeal and grants them a one-day extension to gather the evidence. At the USC's office, Hana volunteers to guard the boys after an angered Mari recieves news of their extension.|
|11||Eryngil Brockovich (エリンギ・ブロコビッチ)||September 19, 2015|
|The boys devise a new plan to engage Meiko in an ass-wrestling contest. However, Hana convinces Mari to allow her to guard the prison compound after questioning Meiko's loyalty. Though the dismayed boys continue by adapting their plan to Hana, a terrified Kiyoshi is threatened by her for their last encounter. When Meiko attempts to overexert herself in her dorm room, Mari reassures her of her own faith. The boys communicate to arrange a nightly rendezvous with Chiyo at the backdoor of the compound while a fearful Kiyoshi opts to go and distract Hana in Gakuto's place. However, Anzu intercepts Chiyo in the school kitchens - only to offer her aid. After Gakuto angers a vengeant Hana into allowing Kiyoshi to go to the nurse's office, a trouserless Kiyoshi successfully unlocks the backdoor during their heated encounter - until she begins a violent attack of him. In the courtyard,a now-patrolling Meiko captures Anzu on Mari's orders with Chiyo awaiting the signal outside.|
|12||Good Morning, Prison (グッドモーニング・プリズン)||September 26, 2015|
|In the courtyard, the shouts of Anzu are recognized by the boys who deduce her scapegoat role for Chiyo's advance. The interrrogation of Anzu by Meiko proves fruitless however. In the nurse's office, Hana begins to kiss Kiyoshi in punishment for his inability to comply. However, Kiyoshi intensifies the kiss until she collapses on the floor and ends her shift, also allowing Jo and Gakuto toilet leave. The night inspection by Mari reveals a safe Meiko and the sleeping boys. The next day in the school chairman's office, the boys object to their expulsion and reveal their nightly triple-switch stratagem with Chiyo - allowing a newly-arrived Gakuto to recover email evidence of DTO. Thus, their innocence and the USC's machinations are proven to the Chairman who declares their sentence paid - the boys now free with the USC in dorm arrest. In the epilogue, the boys are shown enjoying their freedom and newfound popularity while SC President Kate secures the arrest of the USC.|
|Mad Wax (マッドワックス)||March 4, 2015|
|The news of the USC's imprisonment spreads across the student body. Within the Prison Block, the USC are coerced into prison uniforms and they are informed of the chairman's permission. In the school canteen, the boys enjoy female company with the exception of Gakuto and Jo. However, the news of Gakuto's conversation with bibliophile and serial klutz Mitsuko Yokoyama at the school library depresses him. Though Jo attempts to return to internal imprisonment by harassing a schoolgirl, he is stopped by a worried Andre. The next day, reports of a nude male in tortoiseshell bondage spotted by Mitsuko in the school building spread and alarm Andre. The discovery of his missing rope prompts him to try enlisting the others for help intercepting Jo but they refuse him. In the school corridor, a major wax spill by Mitsuko allows Andre to converge on Jo. However, his diversion by muffin-toting Satou results in Andre crashing into the locker room and narrowly avoiding expulsion.|
