The 47th Suggestion: You're All Fools (みんなばかだ, Minna Baka da) is the forty-seventh chapter of the series Medaka Box.


Kikaijima thinks of the time she has spent with Medaka, including their trip to an amusement park, and decides there is no way she is going to let the Flask Plan ruin the life of a fifteen-year-old girl. Yukuhashi interprets Kikaijima's thoughts from her emotions using the Abnormality, Reading Minds. Not having a defensive strategy prepared, Yukuhashi decides to goad Kikaijima into breathing in the knockout gas. A well-planned taunt provokes Kikaijima to tell Yukuhashi to shut him, the force of her voice acting like a sound cannon. This proves to be a mistake however, as Kikaijima breathes in more of the knockout gas. Yukuhashi is pleased when Kikaijima collapses, seemingly unconscious, but is shocked when she awakens herself by ripping off a nail. Yukuhashi asks Kikaijima why she is fighting so hard for Medaka, who was formerly her enemy. Kikaijima replies that for a friend, she will fight. She then uses her sound cannon to send shards of glass at Yukuhashi. Because she thought this strategy through however, Yukuhashi sees through it and deflects the projectiles. Kikaijima begins to tremble, desperate for air. Yukuhashi encourages Kikaijima to take a breath, noting that most people would have suffocated already in her situation. Yukuhashi tells Kikaijima that a person cannot be friends with someone standing on different levels from them; just as Yukuhashi does not consider Oudo a friend, Kikaijima should not consider Medaka a friend. Kikaijima loses her temper, and rips off four more nails. She states that because people treat Medaka as a special being, Medaka is always lonely. Yukuhashi decides to stop trying to reason with her. Kikaijima finishes be declaring that she will rescue Medaka, and then all of the Student Council will go to the amusement park together.
