The 190th Suggestion: Once, at Hakoniwa Academy (かつて箱庭学園には, Katsute Hakoniwa Gakuen niha) is the one hundred and ninetieth chapter of the series Medaka Box.


Facing down Medaka, Kumagawa goes on to explain that Ajimu passed him a message for Medaka when she returned Hundred Gauntlets and granted him Unskilled. He then points out to Medaka that the card with each flower she has collected is made of two parts. Medaka is surprised to discover what each flower includes; a message from each of her opponents. Medaka is overwhelmed by everyone's messages, but Kumagawa tells her just to accept them. Medaka composes herself and prepares to fight Kumagawa, thinking that Zenkichi managed to surpass her in the end. Readying his screws, Kumagawa tells Medaka to come at him with all she has, stating he will not be satisfied with just one win. As the narration details Medaka's time as Student Council president, Medaka charges forward with a smile. Come April of the new school year, Zenkichi greets the new students by making a speech at the entrance ceremony. He is shocked to see the academy's new chairwoman is none other than Medaka. Naze explains that her sister took over the position from her father's double, Hakama. Three new freshman approach the stage and attack Medaka, despite Zenkichi's warning to run away. Medaka defeats them instantly, and welcomes them to Hakoniwa Academy.
