The 49th Suggestion: I Am Not (ではありません, De wa Arimasen) is the forty-ninth chapter of the series Medaka Box.


On the thirteenth floor, Medaka regains consciousness, and insists she goes where "he" is, despite Naze's protests.

On the twelfth floor, Kikaijima refuses to belief that Medaka has been brainwashed. Unimpressed by Kikaijima's anger, Oudo orders her to her knees. He then sends several of the game machines crashing down on top of her, as punishment for trying to "woo" Yukuhashi. Immobilized, Kikaijima cannot dodge Oudo's assault; she is saved by an awakened Zenkichi. Akune attacks Oudo from behind; believing that Oudo's Abnormality is control over gravity; he expects Oudo won't try to use his power in a way that could harm himself. Oudo tells the Student Council they read too much battle manga, and blows Akune back. Zenkichi declares that he has already overcome Oudo's Abnormality, and won't fall as easily as the others. He is horrified however to find his has been strangling Kikaijima without realizing it. Oudo gives Maguro (hiding behind a pillar) leave to explain his Abnormality to the Student Council. They are shocked to hear that Oudo's Abnormality allows him to control minds. Zenkichi physically rips his hands away from Kikaijima, and confronts Oudo on brainwashing Medaka. Oudo asks the Student Council if any of them have ever wanted Medaka to change, citing that Medaka changes, or "brainwashes", people all the time. Though Zenkichi tries to argue, his efforts are undermined by Yukuhashi, who points out that Zenkichi is the one who opposes what Medaka does the most. Oudo tells Zenkichi that the justification "because she was right" is not enough, and tells him not to be conceited. Before Zenkichi can retort, he is interrupted by the arrival of Medaka with Naze and Koga, who states that the actions she has been doing up until now were foolish, and christens herself Medaka Kurokami II.
