Yukari-sensei responds by saying that she is only pretending to be their friend.

Yukari-sensei frequently discusses the boys she hates together with Kaorin and Chihiro from her class. When Yukari has just been scolded by Goto-sensei, she tells Kaorin and Chihiro that she hates him, and they join in by saying that they do too.
