How do you like the series so far? Or are you also commenting about re-watching the series in the English Dub? Sorry, I just had to ask because I was just kind of confused a bit

I...dislike it. For what i have watched, it seems too slow and boring with an incredibly uninteresting plot along with a psychotically "over-powered" heroine. Im not talking about the english dub, i would lose my mind if i saw that.

I personally loved the first 9 episodes. It was interesting to have a nearly 'perfect' character and refreshing. The dub made it out she wasn't perfect however and they let you deduce she has problems with animals. SHe isn't human or so you think after all of her self righteous acts. After awhile I will admit it gets boring. I feel that the battle arcs (sorry fans.) are yes unique maybe cool, but rather dull and uninteresting. I love the student council because it has a life to it and light-heartedness. There is a lot of cool things they could have used as the student council. I feel the author was running out of funding or something and then turned it into a battle manga when he was at first writing a romance, then changed to a average shounen, then changed again to a battle manga when he was desperate. After that the whole thing looses interest. I like the dub's personality and perfect humor. It's something which a lot of anime doesn't have. The jokes are actually funny. They have clever analogies but not over the top. They don't repeat awkward laughs...

Does anyone else see how this is somehow better?

Who thinks they should return to a normal student council arc? Should they seperate the mangas into two seperate ones?

WHY WHY? THE battle manga ruined the show. If I wanted to watch a battle manga I would watch a mecha or something interesting instead of a naruto/dragonball/death/Nagamai note parody.

In a lot of ways Medaka is a spoof on the Battle Manga genre. After the Abnormal arc there are a lot of reasons for Medaka to not fight, leaving other characters to take the front. I still think the Minus arc is the best part of the series but the Manga takes a lot of traditional Battle Manga stuff and turns it on it's head.

Truer words have never been spoken.

Only the last 30 seconds of the 23rd episode touched it for me.
