Misaki talked about her beginnings, why she applied to Suiko. She then recalls her experience of not having friends in middle school. Soon, she associates her new-found friends with the Sakura Dormitory. The mere mentioning of the dormitory irked the administration.

Misaki then continued her history, now moving to the beginnings of the dorm. She reveals that less than a week after being in the regular dorms, she was evicted and had to move in to Sakurasou, of which the only resident was Chihiro-sensei. She then tells her desire to have the rooms filled (in Episode 19, this fact was slightly hinted, when Jin told Sorata that Misaki wanted someone to occupy Sorata's current room). She then states the obvious: that her dream came true.

She then moves on to the 'hot pot' tradition, stating that it sometimes seemed that they were having hot pots almost every week. Then, she talks about the bunch sneaking in the school pool, followed by the cultural festival. Misaki then talks about the winter, wherein it represented bad times for them. After that, she then thanked each of the residents in the dormitory. She then concludes her official speech. Then, against the wishes of the school, Misaki talks about the school's plans to demolish Sakurasou. She publicly begs everyone in the hall to support their campaign against their dormitory's demolition.

The principal is mad. Very mad.

This angers the school head, and commands Misaki to stop. However, Jin intervenes and reminds the school head that he approved the change in the speech. Infuriated, he commands other school adminstration members to evict Misaki from

The scene then fades to the blue skies. As it turns out, Sorata and all of the residents of Sakurasou were evicted from the halls. Soon, Kyou no Hi wa Sayounara, an elementary graduation song is sang (with the piano melody from Himemiya Saori). While singing, the group hold hands and run away...
