The Bear (大熊物語 Ōkuma Monotagari) is the 201st chapter of the Prison School manga, serialised in Weekly Young Magazine on December 25th, 2015 and published in tankobon format in Volume 21 on June 6th, 2016.
When a large grizzly bear is spotted behind the trailer, the gunmen fire at the creature only to smash a glass window on the vehicle. While she is rooted to the windowsill of the trailer, the Chairman grabs the trailerwoman and dives out of the window. The gunmen head in pursuit of the bear, with the yakuza boss angered at the escape of the bear. The pair manage to evade the gunfire with the trailerwoman supported on the school chairman's back. When she reveals that their engagement was a lie and that she is actually engaged to the yakuza boss, the two remain together until they are caught in an intimate moment by a hesitant gunman. After the gunman is discovered concussed by a punch to the face from the Chairman, the gunmen receive orders from the yakuza boss to prepare supplies for the two and allow them to come forward. However, the renegade Chairman tosses a wooden projectile that destroys the boss's megaphone in contempt of his command - revealing his affair with the woman.
