The 74th Suggestion: Please Win for Sure (絶対に勝って, Zettai ni Katte) is the seventy-fourth chapter of the series Medaka Box.


After their failure to recruit Naze, Chougasaki and Kumagawa discuss the upcoming Secretary's Battle. One week later, on the first of August, the opposing Student Councils meet for the Secretary's Battle. Choujabaru insists that Medaka and Kumagawa be handcuffed together to keep either of them from causing trouble. Hitomi thinks to herself that the pair are a good match. After confirming her status as a substitute with Naze, Choujabaru asks Shibushi to choose the match. Shibushi picks the snake, like Kumagawa. Choujabaru announces the Secretary's Battle will be a match to strip the opponent. The group moves to the stage of the battle, a freezer in the school's canteen. Naze immediately begins asking about the rules of the match. Hitomi is impressed by Naze's ability to keep her head. Kumagawa offers Class -13's surrender if Shibushi loses. Chougasaki voices his complaints, but Kumagawa merely asks Shibushi to win. Shibushi promises Kumagawa she will not give up, and enters the freezer without hesitation. After Naze steps in, Shibushi attacks her immediately. She is surprised to see Naze has somehow stolen her underwear, but gets kneed in the face; it was Naze's own underwear. Furious, Shibushi pulls out a set of razors.
