The 77th Suggestion: There's No Way I Can Win Against This (敵うはずがねえだろう, Kanau Hazu ga nē darō) is the seventy-seventh chapter of the series Medaka Box.


Shibushi tries to retaliate with her Scar Dead, only to discover both physical and mental damage is now ineffective. Using Ice Fire, Naze seals the wounds Scar Dead opens up, and keeps her head cool to counter her mental trauma. Kumagawa is impressed by Naze's Minus. Seeing it in action, he comments that Naze is definitely a Plus. In response to Kumagawa's insistence, Naze tells him not to compliment her Minus. Shibushi begins to panic, but Kumagawa tells her it is okay to lose, so long as she does so in a flashy way. Shibushi uses her fully powered Scar Dead to try and end the match, damaging both the spectators and the building. In the Public Morals Committee's office, Nabeshima asks Unzen why they are not watching the election battle. Unzen explains that there is no place for them to spy from. Asked about Naze, he states she is someone who never gives up. Naze uses Ice Fire to seal everyone's and everything's wounds. She prepares to strip Shibushi, but at the young girl's pleading for mercy, Naze turns her back to let her strip herself. Shibushi tries a sneak attack, only for Naze to defeat (and strip) her with a blast of fire.

    • It's about the Encouter, if Chougasaki can ward off damage, which he received before developing his abnormality.
    • Are you asking if Chougasaki can reflect the damage he received before he had Encounter? No, I don't see why he would be able to do that at all.
