The 186th Suggestion: It's Good-Bye Here (ここでさよならだな, Kokode Sayonara Dana) is the one hundred and eighty-sixth chapter of the series Medaka Box.


Medaka hands in her withdrawal notice to Hakama. He questions if she won't change her mind, but accepts her decision. Zenkichi is shocked to hear from Naze that Medaka is leaving the academy. Nienami shows up in the Student Council's office as they discuss Medaka's upcoming departure, much to Zenkichi's annoyance. He worries how Shiranui will react, only to find she has already heard from Tsurubami. Shiranui vents her anger, promising to stop Medaka with all her strength. As the Student Council ponder how to convince Medaka to stay, they are interrupted by their faculty advisor, Kuguhara. He warns them against trying to force Medaka, labeling his as an adult's opinion. After stepping out of the office, he confronts his fellow faculty members. The others look to Zenkichi as to what they should do. Zenkichi decides to speak with Medaka directly. He finds her cleaning her classroom. Medaka tells him she wanted to wear the proper uniform once before leaving. She excitedly tells Zenkichi about her future work for the Kurokami Group. Zenkichi is relieved to see that she is happy with her new future. Medaka then asks him if he is packed yet, fully expecting him to accompany her. Zenkichi is momentarily thrilled, then refuses, citing his responsibilities as Student Council president. Medaka is shocked by his rejection. The two say good-bye, then Medaka leaves to cry in private. As she exits, she asks Zenkichi to hold a farewell party so she can say good-bye to everyone else. After Medaka leaves, Zenkichi orders Nienami out of hiding. Nienami steps out of a locker, wondering why Zenkichi refused Medaka's invitation to come with her. Zenkichi tells her that he has decided to change himself, and for Medaka, they will throw the very send-off party Ajimu once thought up as a joke.
