Kurokami Medaka, a first year, is elected as Student Council President, and the first thing she does is establish a suggestion box, later dubbed by students the "Medaka Box". Medaka encourages students to submit any problem to the box without hesitation and promises to take on any issue from anyone.

Since Medaka won the Student Council elections with a staggering 98% of the vote, she ends up as the Council's only member. She asks her childhood friend, Hitoyoshi Zenkichi, for help and he grudgingly agrees, becoming the Student Council's lowest ranking member. Soon Medaka recruits two more people to the Student Council, the former judo club member Akune Kouki as secretary and the current swim club member Kikaijima Mogana, on loan for 300 yen a day, as treasurer.

Now the Student Council members spend their days solving the problems submitted through the Medaka Box, whether they be hooligans in clubs where they don't belong, girls who need help writing love letters or people who've lost their pets, gradually earning the respect and admiration of the entire school.

Medaka Box.....

Before I start my review I wana say that this manga is underrated.
This manga is my fav and I think that until now no manga effected me like this one did.

At first I watched the first season of the anime, to say the truth more half of the first season was like a very strong and smart girl helping who needs help.
When I read that this is an action anime I said to myself where is the action?! the after more than half the series ended and nothing special happened.
I was surprised when it changed after that.

And then came the second season where I read more

No good reviews for this manga? None?

Ok, tuck the kids into bed, because it's fucking story time.

Please note your opinion doesn't matter two shits until you've read at least until the end of the Minus arc.

Medaka is a BATTLE SHOUNEN. No, not fucking hurr durr king of the ninjas, not a fucking rip off of Yu Yu Hakusho called Bleach (It's named that because when I watch it, I feel the need to drink Bleach), it's a real BATTLE SHOUNEN.

Medaka Box is constantly examining the tropes of Battle Shounen manga, and making fun of them. It's asking these questions.

I've come to realize that people who watched the anime series will have an hard time to grasp what the series is trying to accomplish, as it only shows it's true colors by the third arc (I'm counting Uzen has first arc, since everything before it was just establishing characters).
It goes something like this:
Pre-First arc: Mneh.
First Arc: Okay, things are picking up, this may become interesting.
Second Arc: Generic yeah, but it's fun (This is where the anime ends, as far as I was told, btw)
Third Arc: The author comes at this point and laughs at you for having liked the first two arcs.

DBZ, Yu Yu Hakusho, One Piece, Fairy Tale, Naruto, Bleach.......

What do all these great stories have in common? One simple word SHOUNEN.

While all stories are different, they are at their base the same. Introducing vast words and intricate powers that fill every fan boy out there with envy while at the same time introducing the idea of hard work and friendship.

Yet in this day and age, say something like ONE Piece is amazing or Naruto is overrated, whether it be online or in real life, and you pretty much going to get assaulted verbally , emotionally physically or some combination of the three. read more

Both feature overexaggerated fights that occur mostly in a school setting, as well as a shameless display of ecchi at almost every possible opportunity.

Somehow they are similar. Two (more than) weird students who get into the student president council and have odd ways of dealing with the school's troubles. Both have comedy and in both the boy is in love with the girl and the girl is just different from everyone else. 
reportRecommended by Nekko-mimi
The Sket Dan take requests from students to help them out, and Medaka, student council president, has vowed to take all suggestions put in the suggestion box seriously, 24/7, 365/year. 
reportRecommended by Numi
Similarities between these two titles include: an almost invincible female protagonist; the constant highlighting of comradery amongst friends; exagerrated battles; and copious amounts of fanservice. 
reportRecommended by radiantfire
Main similarity is the "Student Council" theme. As well as the main characters being childhood friends and going around solving school problems. Main difference is this involves fights or "duels" with magical items/powers called "Maken". 
reportRecommended by sspatel_55
Both series start off as a slice of life/gag manga but quickly start to root themselves into a light fight manga.
