This volume is all the side-stories you didn't know you needed from the time Satoru is in his coma. Hinazaki continuously visits Satoru in the hosipital and keeps his mom company until Sachiko decides to move Satoru away from the area. Kenya is determined to figure out who attacked Satoru, but his lawyer father, who has the case, tells Kenya he needs to acquire the skills first, so Kenya gets great grades and goes to school to become a lawyer. We also see when Kenya meets up with Sawada-sensei to solve the murder-mystery. Lastly, we see Airi-chan's life since Satoru wasn't in it this time, and the end of volume five links up with the end of volume four to explain how all the characters come together again.

Thankfully, the rest of his classmates are able to get the Festival off without a hitch thanks to all the preparation work he did, and even Hachiken's brother comes by to pitch in in his brother's absence. We finally also met Hachiken's parents, and it is abundantly apparent why Hachiken decided to go to school so far away from them.

Legoshi is determined to save her, especially when it becomes clear that no one else will attempt a rescue or stand up to the Shishi-Gumi (including the Mayor). Legoshi enters the black market and tries to find out more about the gang, like where their headquarters is, when Gohin, the helpful panda psychologist, steps in and decides to help Legoshi on what is essentially a suicide mission.

Naho is a typical girl in Grade 11, with a solid friend group and all the worries of a high-school student: passing tests, what the future holds, boys, etc. One day, she receives a letter, from what claims to be her future self, warning her about what's happening in her life and trying to steer her away from bad choices. The letter comes just as new student Kakeru joins the class and her friend group. As the things. in the letter start to happen, Naho has no choice but to believe her "future self" and try to make up for regrets and missed opportunities that haven't happened yet. To further tangle things, Takano also embeds chapters from the friends' future selves, and more clues as to what lies in store are revealed.
A little while ago, an octopus-like alien took a giant chunk out of the moon. He's sent the world into chaos, and has promised to do the same to the Earth. He can fly and move at Mach 20, and traditional weapons do hardly any damage against him even if they do connect. He's decided to settle on Earth for the time being, and has asked to become the teacher of Class 3-E at a middle school - the class of all the academically struggling, misfit, not-involved students who are critically behind their peers school-wise. Since Koro-Sensei (as the students name him based on a pun meaning "can't be killed) is stationery to the classroom, the government has deputized all of the students in 3-E and given them one mission: kill their teacher before graduation, the date he plans on destroying the Earth. But, Koro-Sensei also cares deeply about each one of his students, as he connects with them personally and tries to beef up their academic skills. Some of the students have reservations about trying to kill one of the most caring teachers they've ever had. That's until another student rejoins the class -- one who's been out on suspension for violence, and who has a disturbing dream of killing a teacher.
Futaba and Taichi discuss their future plans, specifically what colleges they'd like to attend. Futaba confesses that she would like to do something with flowers, but also knows she's currently not very skilled with growing things. She tells Taichi that she would like it if they could go to college together, but this life-altering decision isn't often one to make based off of a relationship. Masumi runs in to Toma's sister-in-law, Akiko, and the two have a very meaningful conversation about happiness and being accepted by other people. Masumi admits to being a lesbian, and asks if Akiko would be able to accept such a confession from her on child, or even Toma. At the end of the school's festival day, Mami Yagihara convinces Toma to let her do his makeup, in a totally manly way of course. Mami confesses her love for Toma, but says she wants to be friends and not let her feelings spoil their ability to hang out. Toma tells Mami who he's in love with, but there's an eavesdropper who makes sure Toma's confession isn't private.

He knows once he graduates that he will find another red deer to be his mate.
