Kamina is that you?


Other than that this anime seems really average. I've heard people say that Medaka Box is like the second coming of Christ but I can only so far I'm really dissapointed. And this whole thing turning into a battle shounen probably won't help either...

Anyone read the manga? Does it actually get good with real plot rather than PLOT.


I've read the manga.

Lets just say that it goes from what you see in those first few episodes to full on psycho Battle Manga.

and it's awesome


because of this Guy

It's a shame CR didn't get this. Everything about the story and characters sounds like absolute crap but it's written by frickin Nishio Ishin and done by Gainax. Many were wanting to see it solely based off of those two factors.

Hopefully Funico will announce their simulcasts this weekend at one of the anime conventions, and we'll know which simulcasts CR can't get.


I wouldn't count on it. Last season Funico didn't announce their "simulcasts" until everything had already reached like episode 5 or 6.

The difference with the winter season was the apparent lack of a major anime convention.

In the Fall of 2011, the announcements came earlier. The Funico announcement was made at NYCC, although I don't recall if the slate of shows (except the 2 Funimation itself had already announced) were announced then or even earlier, but the shows themselves didn't begin until later. I expect the same to be true this time; announce the shows at one of the two conventions, start when they get around to it.

I haven't read the manga yet but a friend of mine says that it's quite text extensive where some of the pages are filled with text to read that almost seems like a book. Well, I'll be reading the manga while watching this so hopefully it turns out to be something enjoyable.

My feeling of the series so far is also average, unfortunately. I expected a bit more tbh.

I watched the first episode of this, it was terrible.
Insipid, generic trash.

The Manga was the same

and then it changed

This is not a series you can judge on first impressions. If you don't like it at the moment come back to it in a few months. It will not be the same show

I'll give it a chance, if you think it will change my opinion, but I'm pretty weary of any show that takes a few months to not suck

It's very hard to explain this show without spoiling much of it.

In a lot of ways the true nature of the show is a parody of everything Shonen Jump.
I once heard someone (I think it was Gintama) that All Jump series turn into a Battle Manga and this series pretty much takes that to the Max and runs crazy with it.
there is quite a lot of near 4th wall breakage as well.

and Medeka herself is pretty much the embodiment of the ridiculously overpowered Shonen Jump hero.


If nothing else come back when Kumagawa gets introduced. Something around the 3rd story arc I think.

That guy is on my top villains list

Love this anime, new fav. I think it's original, well maybe the most original student council type anime. maybe I could be wrong...
Anyways, everytime I want to start a discussions, I search up stark700 and there it is always posting it up before me. LOL
Nonetheless, awesome anime to watch.

i love this show and the manga...i remember reading this and it was a simple manga about helping others but 15 to 20 chapter later it turned into a whole different manga..battle to the death kind of stuff which i like. it might seem that it is a slice of life show but it definitely a Shounen show. this is on my favorite list this year
these are the genres of the show Action, Comedy, Ecchi, Fantasy, School Life, Shounen, Supernatural

when a certain character comes on the show that's when things will change

There's no confirmed information right now, but I can say with confidence that the 45 episode rumor going around is fake.

I'm betting it turns out to be another 2-cour split-cour series (i.e., 12-13 episodes now, and the same again in Fall 2012).

means it either sucks or really good ^^

and i'm pretty sure it isn't going to be "really good"

note: not really but in all reality splitting an anime just trolls the fans that like the anime.... sad face
