    Typical of it's type
    Medaka Box is a show that is highly generic but has it's own twist. However you can't help but fill like you've seen it before. I gave it a try, being a big fan of the 'monogatari' series(due to both having the same writer) but was disappointed, this show didn't meet my expectations, even with Nisio Isin. The artwork is vibrant but could be more refined. Overall, I'd say it's average. GOOD for ...

    Like a locomotive gaining steam...
    Medaka Box was a speculative pick up (I hadn't read the manga previously) for my free time during the holidays as the initial premise for the show is neither fresh or exciting. A student council president offering to help her student cohort with any problem they have (lost dogs, lack of models for art class etc) seems pretty shallow. However, once you let the show breath and discover more ...

    Kind of generic, but it's short and worth a look.
    It's an amusing, if generic, high-school comedy until the last couple of episodes when it becomes a dumb shonen fighting show for some reason. It's nicely animated and I liked most of the characters, plus the fan service is a plus in such a silly show.

    That said, I don't think I'd watch a second season after the strange detour the story makes at the end.

    Happy Crazy Box!! :)
    First of all, let me just say that it is an honor to be one of the first to write a review for Medaka Box. I had high hopes for this series, ever since I started reading the manga. Medaka Box is truly brilliant in every single way. It's a star that shines brighter than all the rest. It's one of those animes that just makes you feel happy inside. The chemistry the characters have ...

    Medaka Box first and second seasons
    This is a comedy action series. Al tho it is pretty silly its still a good watch, the plot is sort of silly but the character design is good and the action sequences are ok too. the etchi elements are ok as well call it 3.5 out of 5. id rank it higher but the ending is the most important part of a story and this one will leave you hanging will review it again if they finish the story later

    Great until episode 14?
    Whoever made this show didn't intend for a fighting style perfectionist. You can see that in the writing or at least in the beginning somewhere-- he wasn't getting enough reviews. So he made it into a fighting show. I like the earnest of a 'almost' perfect girl who's afraid of animals or animals afraid of her lol. I just can't bear to watch the whole dz reenactment. it's just like they're ...

    Chaos and action abound in this colorful show
    Medaka Box is a story about a peculiar girl named Medaka Kurokami who seems talented beyond natural ability. She is incredibly caring and wants to make everyone happy, resulting in her idea to become the Student Council President at her school, the Sandbox Academy. The show is based off of a manga series (which I have not yet read) and currently has 2 seasons released.

    I have always been a fan ...

    Fingers crossed for another season!
    I reaally liked this one! Had some trouble getting into initially because I couldn't really see where it was going but once it caught with me I basically marathoned both seasons. I really appreciated Zenkichi's character and hope to see him develop more in later seasons (if they produce any more). I am pretty bummed with the ending though...cliffhangers with no follow up are no bueno.

    Creative and Quirky, but Shallow
    I enjoyed the plot twists, the outlandish character designs, and the animation, but the main story of Medaka Box failed to coalesce into anything memorable, let alone interesting. I struggled to get through much of the series, although the final villain who emerges to end the first season made for a good confrontation. Still, Medaka is merely a tease, leaving me unsatisfied. Gainax can do better.

    Everyone wants a girl like Melaka....
    Great show....I wish they'd continue the anime so they can catch up to the manga. The manga has completed and I felt it rushed the ending a bit. I think we all wanted to see the romance completed. That's the one thing many of these animes don't do...seal the deal.
