The 86th Suggestion: It was an Unexpected Accident After All (不慮の事故ですから, Furyo no Jiko desu kara) is the eighty-sixth chapter of the series Medaka Box.


Watching, all members of the Student Council, and even the impartial Choujabaru, think Hinokage's victory is assured. The only one who thinks otherwise is Shibushi, who remembers the first time she met Chougasaki. Shibushi and Chougasaki met as children in Hakoniwa General Hospital; Shibushi was five and Chougasaki was six. Annoyed by the noise Chougasaki was making by pressing the buttons of his DS, Shibushi told him to turn it off. He apologized, after which Shibushi hit him over the head with a spiked bat. He fell to the floor but instantly recovered, taking no damage, and apologized to Shibushi. He was then led to his examination room, but not before politely excusing himself and calling her pretty. Shibushi was confused to see Chougasaki was unharmed, and to find the bench they were sitting on had been damaged instead. In the present, Hinokage attacks relentlessly, but Chougasaki is unharmed and unconcerned, even going so far as to put his hands in his pockets. Questioned by Naze, Medaka admits the difference between Hinokage's speed and her Kurokami Phantom is vast. Maguro wonders what price Hinokage had to pay to earn his new Abnormality. Though Chougasaki mocks Hinokage's desire for understanding, Hinokage's continued optimism annoys Chougasaki. As he continues to attack, Hinokage wonders why Chougasaki seemingly cannot feel his punches. Naze wonders the same thing, and orders Zenkichi to use Parasite Seeing on Chougasaki. Zenkichi finds Chougasaki is not focusing on Hinokage, but on the support beams. Chougasaki uses Encounter to redirect the damage to the building's supports, bringing the building collapsing around Hinokage. With the strength of two hundred and fifteen of Hinokage's punches, Chougasaki brings the construct collapsing to the ground. After the building collapses, Shibushi explains the exact nature of Chougasaki's Encounter. A frantic Choujabaru directs the Election Management Committee to confirm if Hinokage is still alive. Though he is buried in the rubble, Hinokage survives, and even manages to keep himself from being disqualified.
