The 83rd Suggestion: He Loves His Comrades (仲間思いな男なんですよ, Nakama Omoi na Otoko Nandesu yo) is the eighty-third chapter of the series Medaka Box.


Emuake uses her Minus to remove the bracelets from Zenkichi and Kumagawa, covering the explosion with her own body to protect them both. She tells Kumagawa that he cannot erase her Raff-Rafflesia, which she has had for so long. Hitomi begins applying aid to the injured Emukae. Staring at her hands, Emukae is happy that she could use her Minus to help others. Kumagawa is horrified to see Emukae protected both him and Zenkichi at great injury to herself. He is deeply disturbed that Emukae protected him despite knowing that he could revive himself with All Fiction. Naze is surprised by how badly Kumagawa is taking Emuake's injuries. Medaka explains to Naze that Kumagawa loves his comrades, and Emuake's rejection is therefore very shocking. Emukae turns down Kumagawa's offer to erase her injuries, stating she is proud of them. As Kumagawa breaks down over Emukae's behavior, Zenkichi notes that Kumagawa's desire for clean and beautiful things is like a disease. Kumagawa finally breaks and demands Choujabaru end the match. Choujabaru declares the match a draw. As he staggers off, Kumagawa tells both Hitomi and Zenkichi to take care of Emukae. Naze asks what will happen if the election itself ends in a draw. Choujabaru explains to Naze that the opposing side will be declared victor. Naze realizes the Treasurer's Battle is therefore a loss for their side. In the garden, Medaka takes Emukae's hand as she is wheeled into an ambulance. Zenkichi tells Emukae he wants to eat her miso soup every day, making her blush. Medaka laughs and tells him to create a happy family. Koga wonders about Zenkichi and Medaka's relationship, having thought the two were going out. Hitomi states their feelings have long since passed what would be called love. Chougasaki and Shibushi run up to Kumagawa, telling him to pull himself together. Kumagawa tells Chougasaki to take over Class -13, as he will need to retrieve his original Minus. Seeing that Chougasaki will be taking over leadership of Class -13, Naze notes that he seems the most normal of the group. The two help Kumagawa leave. Making her way through the halls with Unzen after the Treasurer's Battle, Nabeshima asks him what he thought of the match. Unzen comments that if it were the Enforcers, the election would already be over with three wins. The two come across a collapsed Maguro, who asks them to take him to Medaka. Unzen tells him that his warning is no longer necessary, Nabeshima adding that Shibushi has already been defeated. Maguro explains that the dangerous one is Chougasaki.
