The 71st Suggestion: Come Again When it's Over (終わった頃にまたおいで, Owatta Koro ni Mata Oide) is the seventy-first chapter of the series Medaka Box.


Choujabaru directs several of the Election Management Committee to try to revive both Kumagawa and Zenkichi, while the rest restrain a berserk Medaka (in War God Mode). As Medaka rages, Koga tries to get her to calm down. At the same time, Zenkichi's heart stops. Zenkichi finds himself in a classroom he is familiar with, but does not recognize, not of Hakoniwa Academy, and wearing his middle school uniform. While he wonders whether he is in hell, a voice calls out from behind him, telling him there is no life after death. He turns around to find a girl sitting behind him, whose shoes are labeled with "Ajimu". Zenkichi wonders if she is the great king Yama, but she once again reminds him that he is not in hell. She then tells he didn't kill Kumagawa either, though he shouldn't be surprised. Kumagawa regains consciousness, revealing that All Fiction even undoes his own death. He then mocks Medaka's anger. Ajimu goes on to explain that Kumagawa's All Fiction interacts with the law of causality, and that he cannot die because of it. She tells Zenkichi he is lucky that he didn't become a murderer. When Zenkichi laments that he himself died, Ajimu corrects him; his heart stopped due to the shock from his injuries, so she took his consciousness away. When Zenkichi asks who she is, she tells him if he can't remember, then she is no one. She then goes on to tell him that Kumagawa met her to, and that he meets the "her" inside of his heart every-time he dies. Ajimu tells Zenkichi that she has restored his eyesight, and to come back once the competition is over. Her parting words to him are the order not to make Medaka cry anymore. Zenkichi awakens to find his sight restored. Kumgawa drops his smile for the first time. He explains that his anger is due to Zenkichi regaining his sight, as that is something even Kumagawa could not have done. Regaining his composure, Kumagawa reveals that the other Minuses are attacking the rest of the Student Council during their training.
