Atm, this one is on my worst of the season list.
It seems quite generic.
I`m thinking that people who say it`s so damn awesome, must be people who haven`t seen much anime, or only watched generic ones

The first few episodes aren't what this series really is though, that's kind of the point of it. They start with this rather generic Student Council thing and then turn it into ridiculously over the top super powered battles show with people swinging 50 ton hammers, cyborgs and yandere's who can disintegrate a building just by touching it.

The entire nature of the series changed after about 20 chapters

This pic comes from chapter 23, which is about when the real series starts going with the introduction of Class 13 and the "Evil Plan"

Well, I heard that this show was popular, so I checked it out.

I've never really liked shows that have the main character be so overpowered, but then again, I didn't even know this was an action show.

I usually just go with comedies, but I think I will check this one out since it seems interesting.

Question: Have you read the manga?

If not, had you considered that those people who think it is awesome either have, or have discussed it with those who have?

I don't read manga, so I don't know for myself. I do know there was a lot of buzz about this one as soon as it was announced from people who had.

Medaka being overpowered is pretty much one of the linchpins of the show

However I would say the main character is Zenkichi.

Medaka is more of a Plot Device/Force of Nature that drags Zenkichi and the other characters around.

First impressions is very important unfortunatly ;P
Some anime/manga creators seems to forget about that.

I will continue watching it, but I will drop it if it`s still meh to me after like 4-5 episodes.

fair enough

When Kumagawa enters the series though check it out again. He's a really enjoyable villain and the series got so much better once he was in it.

Him and Medaka's sister are the main reasons I love it

Well I just totally looked through the Medaka Box wiki, so I totally spoiled myself quite a bit, though hopefully theres a lot of stuff in between what I read that happens.

But yeah, seems that the Kumagawa person is a badass......though... I am kinda pissed that the opening paragraph of his bio shows what happens to him....wish I didnt see that

I had low expectations for this but it was better than I thought it would be. I like Zenkichi as a character already. I hope they actually give him an in-depth emotional focus in the later episodes. This anime sort of reminds me of Haruhi, not sure if that's a good thing though.

By the opening I'm thinking this won't even get up to the class 13 arc, which is kinda dissapointing >_>

Keep in mind that many two-cour series change their OP about mid-way.

Ah, that makes sense
I'm just hoping Gainax can keep their act straight and this turns out at least halfway decent (which I'm probably just unnecessarily freaking out over because this seems like it could go either way)

There are only 6 DVD/BDs with 2 episodes each, so that confirms the first season is only 12 episodes.
