  • Kikyō Kushida has not been expelled from the school; she was close in Year 2, but she was saved by Suzune, which was a surprising moment in the story.

Kikyō Kushida is one of the most popular characters in school

Before we actually reveal the main story, let us just quickly go over who Kikyō Kushida is since understanding her role in the story is crucial to understanding the answer to this question. You need to know that Kikyō Kushida is a well-liked class D girl who tries to make friends with every student at the school and has a supposedly kind and upbeat disposition. Nevertheless, she conceals a violent, cold-blooded, spiteful, and manipulative mentality beneath her happy and kind exterior. She also chooses to keep it a secret in order to maintain support from her pals while using her friendships to further her reputation. She also exhibits intense animosity against Suzune, yet for some reason, she still desires a closer relationship with her.

She was shown to have attended the same high school as Suzune in the light novels, leading one to believe that Suzune had learned of her troubled history. In the second year of high school, Kiyotaka revealed her true personality to everyone, and Kikyō became so hateful of him that she tried, but was largely unsuccessful, to find a means to get him expelled from the school.

Now, as you can see, Kikyō Kushida is a very controversial character and it makes sense that fans keep asking about her. Her story has been turbulent, with a lot of scheming, both during the main story as well as the 2nd-year sequel story. This is why we are going to reveal what happened to her in the story, i.e., whether she is among the students who have been expelled in the series so far.

Kikyō Kushida has not been expelled – she is still in the school, even in Year 2

Now, our introduction revealed that there are, indeed, a lot of controversies surrounding Kikyō Kushida in the story. During the first year, she was not really in trouble. She was scheming against other students and used her popularity to get herself into a better position while scheming in the background. There weren’t too many issues for her during the first year, but she did play an important role in scheming against the other students in the school. Sometimes, she would be more, sometimes less successful, but it cannot be denied that she was an important character overall.

During the second year, though, she got into trouble, mainly because she was focused on dealing with Kiyotaka Ayanokōji, who was an opponent that was a bit above her league, as it turned out. The crucial moment we are talking about happened in Volume 5 of Year 2, when she schemed – once again – with Takuya. Namely, Takusa revealed to her that the next text had a question that could expel someone, so Kushida once again devised a plan to expel Kiyotaka, but it failed – of course. And then it happened.

Kiyotaka revealed Kushida’s true personality to everyone, showing them she was a scheming and vile person. Kushida then realized she was going to be expelled, and decided to – like she did in the past – expose everyone’s dark secrets out of revenge, but Suzune stopped her and then told everyone that she would keep her in the class. And that is how Kushida was saved from expulsion, and we can confirm that she has not been expelled so far.
