The 39th Suggestion: For Abnormals to Be Free (異常の自由のために, Abunōmaru no Jiyū no Tame ni) is the thirty-ninth chapter of the series Medaka Box.


Zenkichi kicks at the shutters sealing the rest of the Student Council off from Akune. Zenkichi expresses his frustration that Akune got separated while Medaka and Kikaijima were quarreling. Medaka and Kikaijima each deny fighting with each other. Medaka tells Zenkichi not to worry about Akune however, and suggests they worry about themselves instead.

Akune stares down Naze's pack of animals, and tells Naze that animals have never liked him much. As the animals attack, Akune cries out and stomps, combining Zenkichi's and Kikaijima's techniques to blow the animals away. He then tells Naze she was mistaken to seal him in a confined area. Naze congratulates him on defeating all her animals in only one shot, but tells Akune he has neglected the most dangerous animal present. Akune is surprised to discover Koga lurking above him, and barely dodges her kick. Naze then reveals that in a closed space, Koga is nearly invincible, and that if Takachiho is the strongest man in the Thirteen Party, Koga is the strongest woman. Akune is then put on the defensive as Koga begins to furiously attack him. Akune drops to his back, and manages to catch Koga in a chokehold. Despite this, Koga is still able grab his neck, and rise to her feet with Akune still holding her. Naze sarcastically expresses her admiration of Akune, but chides him for trying to win by making his opponent submit. She then explains that Koga is an android; as Naze's specialty is remodeling people, she has completely reworked Koga's body. Koga then throws Akune off and returns to the ceiling, declaring she is fighting the Student Council so that the Abnormals can be free. Akune shakily holds his ground, and prepares to continue fighting.
