When newly elected Student Council President Medaka Kurokami institutes her idea for a suggestion box where people can submit problems that need to be solved, she's expecting things like rescuing lost puppies and giving advice. What she and her best friend Zenkichi find instead, however, are the first hints of an unbelievable secret, and their school, Hakoniwa Academy, and Medaka herself are somehow at the very center of the growing maelstrom! As what seemed like an innocent past time turns into a dangerous game, Medaka and her recruits to the Student Council discover new depths to both themselves and their own unexpected abilities. And then things get really out of control!

The story is one of your typical school setting based stories but with a few twists, such as extraordinary powers and hilariously absurd but fun-to-watch scenarios revolving Medaka and her student council buddies helping students via a message box, helping whomever submits a request.

The series is filled with humor and fanservice, and i'm surprised to say, the fanservice is way too funny to be annoying. Characters in the anime are the most eccentric and absurdly diverse in number and personalities.

Although the music is pretty generic having the upbeat j-pop song for the opening, nothing catchy in my opinion. Same goes for the OST.

Oddly enough, I found myself enjoying this show more than I thought I would. Far from perfect, it still has it where it counts with its witty humor and “out there” characters.

According to fans of the manga, the anime really didn’t cover a lot of ground. More or less the majority of it was introducing the characters and developing them as they interact with each other in a case by case sort of way. The last, oh let’s say, third of the series is the first story arc.

I really enjoyed watching Medaka Box and I will review it for you in an easy to - read way. I seriously suggest watching it for a funny and entertaining anime!

She tries to get her childhood friend in the student council but he is totally against it. She tries to reform everybody who has done a bad deed and eventually comes up against difficult challenges.

Characters - The characters throughout the show are good with some great background stories. There read more

I want to start off by saying that this review is for both series of Medaka Box. This anime had very much so it's strong points and it's weak points. For the strong points my three favorite things in anime: the characters were amazing, Medaka and Zenkichi, I can't spell so do not get mad, there was contrast to the characters such as the overall change in how Medaka changed over the period of the series, and finally, the comedic relief was out of this world I liked that probably the most. It definitely lacked in art because of the fact that read more

Both involve a group of students including a tough female who solves other students' problems and fights delinquents. However in SKET Dance the group is a club and Medaka Box is about the Student Council. 
Crazy girl forces sarcastic guy to join her wacky squad of magical girls. Genre hopping adventures ensue. 
Both have a similar feel and art style. Both have a leading female character who is omnipotent. 
Both series star members of a school's Student Council. The only difference is the Medaka Box is about fighting and Seitokai Yakuindomo is about sex jokes. The leading girls and student council presidents Medaka and Shino are also very similar. 
Helping people is always a nice feeling and in both of these series, it's one of the themes. Medaka Box and Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi both have a main female protagonist who although is violent always cares for her friends and willing to help others.

Both series has the theme of a club that helps out others but along the way faces hardship and struggles.

Both series has a lot of comedy, drama, and action later on in the series.

Both of these Anime are about student councils run by girls with at least one member selected through popular vote. They also are humor based and slice of life. 

Opening Theme

"HAPPY CRAZY BOX" by Minami Kuribayashi

Ending Theme

"Ohanabatake ni Tsuretette (お花畑に連れてって)" by Medaka Kurokami (CV: Aki Toyosaki)
