Hey,this episode was much better than the last week one.I believe we're having Kikaijima introduced in the next 2 episodes and then the first arc begins.

Wouldn't people think that guy liked her if he was by her side constantly like that?

Anyway, the fight wasn't bad and the rest wasn't really too bad either, it was just wasn't very interesting. When is this series going to make the transition from mediocre to great like everyone is saying it will?

Yep, he likes her.

You probably won't see that point, the last episodes will cover the introduction to the good stuff but the real shit happens later.

WTF?! Only 12 episodes for a shounen series which evidently starts slowly ?! What a fail...
who said that it couldnt be split cour like the official website hints out


let us hope so


Hope very so! This show definitely will be horrible if it's just introductions.
I thought another thread confirmed a run of 35 episodes or so?

Pretty good episode, I'm glad there was no pointless fan service. Will hope to see the good stuff that happens later like everyone is saying that happens in the manga.

This was the first episode that I honestly felt was all that decent, despite the adaptation's faithfulness to the manga. Hopefully from here it continues to improve and redeem itself.

Favorite part has to be Medaka begging Zenkichi to win.

Im not totally sure what philosophy makes sense to me. Prodigy or no prodigy. Both depress me. One sense is you have people with an unfair advantage and the other is youre a loser whos on an equal level who cant keep up. FUUUU~

i think im gonna practice my penmanship now.

I just hope this goes past 12 episodes. After reading so many comments say "Well, it starts slow but it gets good later on!" I decided to read the manga. I now can say I am caught up with it and actually am enjoying it. Unfortunately though 12 episodes is cutting it to short so if it only goes on for that long I'd recommend reading the manga as well.
Touch me, you filthy casual~

It's always possible these first twelve episodes are more to test the waters than anything and it'll get greenlighted for additional seasons if it does well enough. I'm seriously hoping for that, at least. I started reading the manga for Kumagawa and he's the main reason I do read.

I really don't get the big deal with Kumagawa. Perhaps I just don't like villains but even when he changed he still doesn't stand out that much. If memory serves me his backstory isn't well explained either. The apparent reasons for his action is just that, what, he's a twisted/psychopathic but nice dude at his core? (If you like to reply to this please do so in my profile instead, don't want to spoil anyone else here.)

Not really a fan of how this is progressing. Kouki irks me to no end, so I'm not too glad to have him as a regular. I would rather see that tomboy as a recurring character. There were one or two good moments, but it could use a lot of improvement 3/5.

he's sort of the hero of the haters, and since the manga had tons of those he became a very popular character =P
also if villains are overpowered they are cool, if main characters are overpowered they are mary sues

that's more or less how i would explain his popularity, because if it's not that i don't get it too o_o

It's funny to see people dropping Medaka because they'll never see was this series really is about.
dropping it isn't much of a bother, it is coming back only to whine about it
but with the manga too the haters were an active part of the readers
those who are unable to like it from the start, and for some unknown reason will continue to follow it, will develop over time a love/hate reaction for the story
dunno how much healthy is for a fandom being for the most haters or past haters... :|
if this show will manage to bring some reactions, regardless being good or bad, that will be a good feat i think


liked this episode, still feels a bit odd having precisely 2 chapters fitted in one episode
i don't think there was enouth emphasis when zenkichi reacted to medaka's 'cheer' before scoring his point vs akune, the talk about geniuses and effort was somehow the real focus of the semi-episode
that background music was really bothering at some points -.-
found the second part more interesting and entertaining, akune trying to imitate medaka(with both the stripping and the paragon), zenkichi being upset at the attention akune gets from medaka, shiranui being a bottomless wormhole as usual (but a cute one :3 ), and medaka pushing akune to give his best

I think Kouki makes Medaka's Box slightly more bearable. I actually enjoyed some of his scenes so I'm glad he's sticking around. He adds a little something to the anime with his arrogant attitude and vanity.

Still the bulk of the show is disappointing. The dialogue never hits the heights that I was expecting from this and Medaka remains nothing but a fanservice machine. Hopefully we'll see some development of her character that isn't completely ridiculous.

Right, it's episode 4 and no trace of super powers and any stuff closely related to that. Lol, that reminds me about the start of the YGO manga.

But anyways, the anime is good enough even just as it is now - combination of Sket Dance and Suzumiya.

Nooo, the chance at a harem is gone. There should only be more female members of the student council.
