The 68th Suggestion: It's About Accepting (受け入れることだよ, Ukeireru Koto da yo) is the sixty-eighth chapter of the series Medaka Box.
Choujabaru leads the Student Council and Kumagawa to the Viper's Den, a pit on the school grounds. Koga is shocked to see the pit is filled with snakes. Choujabaru explains the nature of the battlefield, and the rules of the match. Zenkichi hesitates at the edge of the netting covering the pit, and is stopped by Kumagawa's taunting. Kumagawa tells Zenkichi he will throw the match to spare Zenkichi's dignity. Telling Zenkichi how he can become a Minus himself, Kumagawa steps onto the netting covering the pit without hesitation, impressing Choujabaru. Koga tells Zenkichi there is no shame in backing out; Zenkichi thanks her for the advice, but steps out onto the netting. As Zenkichi prepares to begin, Naze wonders once again who has been training him. Medaka theorizes who has been training under, but states what is important is what he has learned. Drawing his screws, Kumagawa makes the first move, only to be knocked back by a kick to his collarbone. The netting sinks five centimeters with just the first move, leading Choujabaru to wonder how long the match will last. Hitomi is disgusted by Kumagawa's movements. Kumagawa rises and tries again, only to be knocked back down. Choujabaru takes note as the netting sinks again. Seeing Zenkichi performance against Kumagawa, Naze declares that they should all respect whoever trained him. The others see through her ruse, and Naze admits to having trained Zenkichi herself (after threatening him). Hitomi questions Naze on the specifics, and thinks to herself that Naze is a good, if gloomy girl. Koga is annoyed to hear Naze had spent the previous week with Zenkichi. Medaka questions Naze on how Zenkichi conquered his fears; Naze explains he only worked around them. Zenkichi continues to strike Kumagawa, keeping his eyes closed to manage his fear. Koga is amazed to see that Zenkichi is fighting with his eyes closed. Bloodied, Kumagawa states this bullying should be regulated. Naze explains the first part of her Minus Nullify System.
