   Ricardo has to carry each of them on his back like a horse.
   Then he has to let them throw him in the school's rooftop
   cistern. This is accomplished, but Ricardo can't get
   himself out of the cistern, sinks to the bottom, and
   drowns. Carlos pulls him out, and he seems dead, but he's
   not, quite. The teacher hears the commotion, takes Ricardo
   to the school doctor, and covers for the boys with the
   administration. At home Ricardo's mother insists that they
   move him to a new school. In a private talk with his father
   Ricardo explains everything, says he deserved his
   punishment, and wants to stay in the public school. The
   father understands because he wasn't always rich, and makes
   up a story to calm his wife. Things go better at school
   among the boys, and after a few days Ricardo dismisses his
   chauffeur so he can play baseball in an alley. Since it's a
   dirty place Ricardo takes his shoes off, and Memín guards
   them. Some bigger boys come along and want to use the area
   for their own game, and a fistfight starts. During the
   confusion a thief picks up Ricardo's shoes. -- Call no.:

   burned in 1692 living nearby, he spies on her through a
   window and sees her summon the ghost of her ancestor. She
   confirms to the ghost that only she can travel through time
   by means of 'the room without a door.' The scientist gets
   the witch evicted and buys the house so that he can search
   for this room. He finds a small box with wallpaper made to
   resemble a room. He breaks the box open and finds himself
   back in 1692 tied to a burning stake. -- Data from Bob

   leave, and the only option is to enter the exclusive
   all-male boarding school, Ryokuto Academy. But since the
   car accident sidelined Kazuya for quite some time, and he
   ended up missing a little over a month of school! Entering
   school, Kazuya is introduced to the Student Body President,
   Shinobu Tezuka, and Kazuya's dorm's Head Resident, Mitsuru
   lkeda, who both seem like nice, good-looking young men.
   They escort Kazuya to his new home, the dorm named
   Ryokurin-ryu--but because that is so difficult to
   pronounce, they call it by its English translation,
   Greenwood. And because Kazuya arrived at school late, he is
   introduced to his new roommate in the last available room,
   Shun Kisaragi, the cutest girl in the guy's dorm! --
