Adults Won't Understand (大人は判ってくれない Otona wa Wakatte Kurenai) is the 18th chapter of the Prison School manga, serialised in Weekly Young Magazine on June 27th, 2011 and published in tankobon format in Volume 2 on October 6th, 2011.
On Tuesday evening after school hours, Meiko postpones their penal labour to ask Gakuto why he is wearing tracksuits. After a while, he confesses to defecating in his pants earlier, as Meiko insults him for having a loose sphincter. In contrast to Andre's jealousy at her verbal abuse, Jo and Shingo make homosexual jokes about the situation. Their sniggers anger Kiyoshi, who asks them what is funny about their friend being insulted, for which they apologise. Meanwhile, the Chairman is shown to have dug up the hole in which he buried his treasured photo collection of South American ass, and he resolves to permanently 'seal' the collection near the disposal area with cement in his duty as a father and teacher so that it can never be dug up again.
When Kiyoshi expresses his anger at the verbal abuse Gakuto endured after school hours, Gakuto said that he expected such harsh insults. Kiyoshi again promises to use every effort to make the breakout a sucess, and the two swear to succeed. At this time, the Chairman has a wheelbarrow with cement which he tearfully upends into the hole to bury the collection permanently. While Gakuto and Kiyoshi recap the breakout plan and the timeframe of the operation, the Chairman mistakenly fills in the large escape hole dug by Kiyoshi and Gakuto with cement. Kiyoshi checks the hole to find it blocked to their shock, with only 3 days left until the breakout occurs.
