Major Events[]

  • Shokuhou Misaki and Misaka Mikoto are put in the same group during a joint drama class for Tokiwadai's second years. Their group is assigned to perform Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, with Shokuhou to play Oberon and Mikoto to play Titania.
  • With the excuse of learning how the male mind thinks for her masculine role, Shokuhou decides to visit a certain boy, though her clique expresses consternation at the idea of seeing a boy. Cornered by Kobayashi Satori, Shokuhou agrees to let Kobayashi disguise herself as her for the meeting, testing a slim possibility regarding Kamijou Touma's memory loss (with Kobayashi made to forget about it afterwards).
  • Otonari Hibiku, a health committee member whose has been causing incidents of ability-induced internal bleeding in a misguided effort to relieve her victim's stress, targets Shokuhou based on her own assumptions, and ends up falling for the decoy. In the ensuing clash of Telepathy, Kobayashi and Otonari bring each other down, while Otonari's final attack towards Shokuhou is neutralized by the oblivious Touma's Imagine Breaker.
