This tbh.
This is why I shouldn't have believed the hype.

This is so disappointing.

I swear Zenkichi is the only one saving this show for me. Interesting character is such an over-exaggerated world. Good thing Medaka Box is only going to be 12 episodes (according to MAL).

I hoped that it would run for longer than 12-13 episodes since it's not enough to be able to do the manga any justice.

It's a shame really with a 12 episode season they are pretty much going to end with the battle against Monster Child.

Literally right before the series gets interesting.

No Class 13
No Naze
No Medaka 2.0
No Kumagawa
No Class -13
No Not Equals
and no Zenkichi vs. Medaka


They are pretty much making the Anime out of the least cool parts of the series

To people who haven't read the Medaka Box manga,I'll say it now:
It goes Madoka Magica on us.But unlike MM where it was on episode 3,it much farther in the series after cliched high school stuff .That's gonna drive a good amount of people expecting something else away.Of course it could also be a negative effect for those like the way it is & would hate for it to truly become a shounen (it DOES ).

I don't know that I would say it goes Madoka on us.
Madoka was a Genre deconstruction. It took all the aspects of a Magical Girl show, ripped them apart and stitched them back together like a broken mirror.


What Medaka Box dose is goes off the Deep end of Shonen Action series and kicks the 4th wall square in the nuts.

That might make me give the show a second look. Thanks!

It's going to take a while, the Manga took about 20 chapters before it started to get crazy. As I mentioned above with a 12 episode season they are pretty much setting up to end just as the best parts are about to start.

Those last 3 or 4 episodes though are going to be pretty cool though.

If the series gets another season it'll be full throttle from there.

unfortunately I doubt we will see Kumagawa Misogi until season 3 which is a shame cause he is an awesome bad guy

look at it this way, it goes from the series you have been watching so far to this

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.


thats why i watched it

I read a few chapters of this manga and it was slightly entertaining when I was reading it but I stopped keeping up with it just because every chapter felt the same.
I'm trying to keep up with the anime now and it's WAY worse than the Manga, and the Manga is already it's own special kind of bad, it doesn't need any help to be worse from a boring Anime such as this.
The characters are Cardboard, everybody is laughably powerful and attractive to a point of being unrealistic, the stories feel like a child's dream of what they think a perfect high school should be like, and most of the stories are about authoritative coercion.

Yeah, I've watched my 3 episodes of it and I can say I think I'm done with it.

out of curiosity at what point did you stop reading.

Was it before or after it became a Battle Series?

Don't recall, I haven't read it in so long, I was reading it when it was a brand new series on Manga fox.

The series changes quite dramatically after about 20 chapters.

In some ways the best advice I can offer is start watching with season 2, but for that, season 1 has to do well enough to warrant a season 2.

Like I said earlier, it goes off the deep end of Shonen Battle Action Mangas particularly with the introduction of Kumagawa....

He's very hard to describe, he's such a likable evil scumbag that he even won the popularity contest.
I'm dying to see him animated, except that unless they skip a major story arc that won't happen until a third 12 episode season.
