Personally I love the manga and very enjoyed the anime so far people should give Medaka Box a chance because it mixes a lot of interesting elements like alchemy, friendship, forced human evolution, and so many other interesting social issues.

A lot of people miss the fact that the series is a parody of Shonen action series. It takes everything you expect from a Battle Manga dials it up to 11 and run crazy with it.

The last arc in the Manga ended with a Life and Death Shiratori match.

The bit I love most is that Kumagawa, who's entire character revolves around being the ultimate looser, has been winning the official character popularity polls.

The Minus arc is probably my favorite of what they have done so far, precisely because Kumagawa looks at the conventional Progression for a Battle Manga and says "What kind of idiot lets the good guys go off and train to get stronger, screw that we want to win."

GAINAX actually didn't fuck up the Zen VS Munakata fight.
Can't wait until this week's ep, Naze finally shows up.

So far they have been extremely faithful to the manga. They've stylized things a little more in a few spots but over all it's a pretty faithful transition.

I did think that the OP seems to suggest they might go off the rails at some point and try and rush certain characters into the story, but then I realized - This is Ginax. The OP itself could be a Troll

They've been faithful to the events of the series, but I'm not fond of the attitude tweaks that have been made.
For example, look at Medaka.
Her anime version is 500 times too cheery, and is lacking the intimidating look she is supposed to have.
This is a big deal too, since Medaka is the main plot driving force, and the attitudes in Medaka Box are very important.

I'm hoping the OP is a lie, and GAINAX doesn't let us down.

The second season is sort of slow for me.

Fuck yeah, GAINAX did a good job with this ep.
They took out the part with the animals attacking Akune, but it's not a big deal.

:D
We finally got to see Naze! (My favorite character.)

Season 2 - Episode 6



This was a strange episode to see some of Kouki's past. That fight was okay I guess but wasn't too special. It was nice to see some of Naze's past as well. Also, I lol'd @ that abrupt ending.

<hehehe>

They haven't even touched on Naze's past, wait till we find out the rest next week.

Maguro is the hint, If you think very carefully about him you might figure it out.

1st season was alright, but this second season is getting pretty awesome pretty fast. I haven't read the manga yet, but based on this last episode, it looks like things are about to get interesting. I'm looking forward to next week.

The first season was very confused, began with drama, then switched to comedy and even reached the level of Dragon Ball (xD well the last battle was destructive ) and the characters are engaging and the story is proving increasingly complex, I want to see potential is this anime

It can be a bit confusing at times simply because of it's nature

Medaka Box is a Shonen Battle Manga that is a parody of Shonen Battle Manga. Every trop would would expect to see in Dragon Ball or Bleach or any other of those series is used here and then dialed up a few notches to show how ridiculous they can be. Medaka her self is the penultimate Shonen hero who keeps getting stronger with every battle. The series constantly runs head first into the 4th wall at times and plenty of times where the writer of the series pokes fun and the very nature of Shonen comics.

In the manga right now they are facing enemies who's powers are centered in the manipulation of language, a power they need to learn to defeat the most dangerous foe they have ever known, against whom all their physical abilities are useless.

Literally a case of the Pen being mightier than the sword.

I also felt confused, at first it was comedy, then started the fights, but I liked this new direction.

Actually I found it quite confused, but I'm really enjoying it, I'm watching the anime with a lot of hope in it I found very good personality development of each, they are unique and medaka herself is a box of surprises

Season 2 - Episode 7



I have to say that Naze has a cute face which resembles Medaka quite a bit. If only she'd smile more..

Anyways, a meh episode this time with a lot of talk and history regarding "Naze-chan". God, I also can't stand Medaka's brother. Those four things that he can "steal". Christ.
