The 181st Suggestion: You Lost (私達は負けたんだよ, Watashi Tachi ha make Tandayo) is the one hundred and eighty-first chapter of the series Medaka Box.


Laughing, Iihiko decides to test out his new body, destroying the hospital. Medaka manages to protect her friends, surprising Iihiko. In fury, she tries to use Kurokami Final again, only to be stopped by Iihiko. Congratulating her on her performance, Iihiko makes to leave, but is stopped by Medaka, who latches on to him. Deciding to break her spirit, he attacks her friends. Medaka still refuses to let him go however, and a furious Iihiko begins beating her. Yuzuriha watches on, having protected herself and Kotobuki with her style. The two discuss Medaka's behavior, neither of them able to understand why she is going to such lengths for a single friend, as all the rest of her friends are now dead. Nienami explains they lost because they could not understand. Finally forcing Medaka off, Iihiko makes to leave, only to be stopped once more. Iihiko angrily demands to know who his new opponent is. Drawing her sword, Nienami confronts Iihiko.
