Titre original : My Battle Without Honor and Humanity
Inside the Heartful Office, Ayumi is being questioned by Kawashima and Takuma. Kawashima shows her pics in the laptop. They were seemingly candid shots of Ayumi looking sweetly intimate with a certain guy. Kawashima says they were sent by an anonymous person. "Answer honestly. Who is this guy?" Takuma: "A friend? Like from your part-time job... (Then, he tries to give her a way-out) Areh, isn't he your big brother..." But Ayumi refuses it. "He's my boyfriend." Kawashima orders her to read the company's 3 Rules on Prohibited Love, printed in huge posters pinned on the board. "Don't take pictures. Don't get your picture taken. Don't go with them." Kawashima: "Honestly, I'm surprised. Not just main members but I never thought I have to keep eye on the Hole group, too. Because you're all nobodies, basically you're all ordinary people. Then, may be this was taken by someone within, don't you think? That's scary, Amejo is scary!!" Takuma feeling offended by Kawashima's remarks, and says, "No, it's not! I mean, AmeJo wouldn't do such a thing, right?" Kawashima nods and asks Ayumi what she will do now. She asks to be given 5 seconds to think about it, but answers in two seconds: "I quit... I love my boyfriend." Kawashima asks her if she's serious. "You can't come back to the Hole!" Ayumi: "It's okay. I rather do my best for my boyfriend, instead with friends who will betray me without any hesitation. Thank you for everything!"
