The plot itself is interesting. But the way it progresses its too boring. Lost interest for both the manga and the anime.

Season 2 is going to most likely start with full throttle action

If they keep with the 2 chapters an episode pace they are going to need 16 episodes so they might shave things a little to fit it into 12.

or maybe we'll get a nice surprise and the show will Beelzebub on us and get a full ongoing run. (Or at least a season 3, I want Kumagawa damn it)


or run it as a 24/26 with a bit of filler.

~~~

In general the show positively surprised me (as in surprised me in a good way). Some of the characters are just really really engaging (notably the male lead whose name I've forgotten all of a sudden and Shiranui)

Alas Shiranui doesn't show up a lot in the Flask Plan arc but She is pretty crucial to the Minus arc though. She is a very interesting personality and the relationship between her and Zenkichi is really fun

I don't know how much of the series we are going to get animated but I do hope we get to one of Shiranui's best moments.

Most of the series made me sit there and think to myself "I'd rather be watching Sket Dance at the moment then this" but once it hit the last few episodes after Unzen shows up that is where my interest in the series started.
Also I really hate Medaka as a character...

See I think I'm the reverse of most anime fans.

The quirky/weird episodes really grabbed me, and the fighting episodes I found kind of 'bleh' (although I admit it got better when I got used to them). Even this early, the show has a fairly unique POV that's nice to see.

They weren't completely bad or anything since I did enjoy a few of the stories that they brought since some of them were just so over the top and funny but while I was watching it I just couldn't help myself but think that Sket Dance does a better job lol it's a bit un fair to the series but I just couldn't help it.

That weird POV is probably one of the things I like best about the series. The manga evolved into an extreme take on the typical Battle Manga and then playing with all the typical rules that define a Battle Manga, turning a few of them inside out and sometimes walking right up to the 4th wall and often breaking it flat out.



One of the most recent chapters had one character describe the series as Surreal Gag Humor and that pretty much nails it


Surreal Battle Gag Humor Manga.

Funny thing is, and it's silly to contradict the writer, but Medaka isn't really the main character. She's barely a character at all, mainly a force for the Student Council to bounce off of. Zenkichi is the main character, imo, and not just the POV ala Lucy in Fairy tale.

She is described as being such a major nonconformist that she created her own language using only numbers. Only her little brother and Medaka have ever been able to translate it.

personally I really like the character but she doesn't show up a lot. Basically she is used as an example of what the typical member of class 13 is like.

Does the language itself actually makes sense though when the author wrote it or is it just some random language that is just there for a gimmick?

I sort of liked her character as well and I guess this is just a little taste of what's to come
