To the Tip of the Nails[1] (番外編 ~ 爪の先編, Bangai-hen - Tsume no saki-hen) is a bonus story for Dengeki Daisy. It was originally published in Betsucomi Deluxe and is included volume 16 of the series. The story is set during the events of volume nine, after Kurosaki has returned home after running away but before he confessed to Teru[2].


Tasuku Kurosaki notes that Teru Kurebayashi has been putting a very conscious effort into her appearance lately and how she is always serious about anything that takes effort. Waking up from a nap, he sees how serious Teru is as she applies nail polish, which immediately flusters her when she notices that he's woken up. Though she wants to be prettier, Teru thinks that she needs to do so secretly and starts to put away her supplies.

However, Kurosaki decides that he'll finish painting her nails, much to her chagrin. Kurosaki proves to be very careful and considerate to Teru's happy surprise, unaware that Kurosaki wants to be able to do something simple and special for her now that he doesn't need to send her secret messages as DAISY. As he paints her nails, he thinks about his feelings for her and how intimate those feelings actually are. However, Kurosaki knows that Teru would probably kill him if he actually voiced those thoughts and thinks to himself that she should not get pretty too quickly. Finished with painting her nails, Kurosaki pinches her nose, while Teru is helpless to retaliate until her nails dry.
