THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I am sorry to say this but I regret not having followed my fellow friend’s warnings about the THE SHIT HITS THE FANS! Cause it just did! Medaka this episode takes a TOTAL 180 degrees turn around much to the warnings of my friends who read the manga. Among the the insanity of this episode of the most insane proportions never before seen in the series but perhaps a little of last episode seldom really. Nothing could prepare me for the barrage of elements condensed in this episode.

First of all one minute I see a nice class playing some instruments in the spoiler
the Unzen Myouri in the following,

GUY WTF! Blood on him? Did he kill the class or bloody pulp beat them? Holy shit! Blood! The guy is totally insane freako! FREAK in the spoiler
towel + faces + blood wiping off tells me all I need to know of Unzen. I know he is some kind of Genius and all but IMO he is a Super Powered person one with deadly Fist of the North Star ways of fighting from the looks of the spoiler
I see holes in the wall and on Medaka’s hat.

Moreover his ways freaked out the girls in the spoiler
is he like NUTS? Insane in the brain. Clearly Unzen is fucked up violently, the blood spilled on one of the girls faces MAN! This is really insane for a episode. Everything is fast and action packed! The attack of the the Discipline Committee is here! It MIND-BLEW me and I wonder how many more are going to be once they see the changes in this series as of this episode. Might edit later.

School Assassins that's a new one, Myouri most likely killed the choir just from all that damage. Medaka has a primitive form of teleportation and ultra speed and those moves and she saved the entire Student council when timer just hit 0, I like the fact Medaka used the bike and claws the first two assassins were trying to kill Mogana and Kouki with, very resourceful and exciting.

5/5

I just watched this episode on CR for the subbed version and was bloody amazing imo. For those who already dropped this series, I feel sorry for you know. Why? Because Medaka does what she does best and that's kicking ass:



Chairman Unzen:




Yup, she earned my respect this episode with those inhuman moves.

Regardless though, this episode lies the smackdown and one at that with bloody action.


Still, though, my satisfaction was served.

Checked the manga out! They removed the bloody twist done on the arm of a person. Well it looked gory. DAMN! Kid has telekinesis. Can bend shit around.

I don't think it was killings. More like KO but broken limbs and torn insides with scarring on the outside, that I am pretty sure were done by him.

Good episode,the real Medaka Box Begins!!

Unzen makes his appear,to bad that they censor the arm scene even that it was kinda predictable,beyond that he massacring the Orchestra was awesome!!

Medaka finally shows what awesome she is,first not only taking that hits like a boss but also saving each and everyone of the SC.

Super speed!! Incredible strength!! Climbing walls!! Riding a bike at 8k per hour!! But is Medaka so its normal XD

Well this is just the beginning!! The Enforcer arc reach his high not next episode...you will see :D

Did I just experience excitement from this anime for once? That was actually pretty damn good. Maybe not amazing, but it was a considerable step ahead of the usual. That bike flip Medaka used to get pass all those people was pretty frekin awesome! I had a good feeling from the preview I would end up liking Unzen, his sadistic attributes are well presented in his character. Those eyes, his voice, everything about him reflects his will to massacre!

It has begun. The genre shift of epic proportions.

Manga showed the aftermath a little better http://static2.mangainn.com/mangas/836/31601/010_10_31_2011_05_49_28.jpg

I saw that too. I agree with you. Hence it goes back to the arm also being more gory.

I still Fuuuuuuuuu the little kid to hell. What he did was let's just say Over 9000 in excess. I bet you some nice girls got hurt but they don't show it except at first when you see them with everyone playing instruments.

Man the worst part is that Medaka was about to fix the problem with isolation. KID NEEDS PROZAC enough said.

No, sorry, I'm not buying it. Unzen is too over the top, which is saying quite a bit for an already over the top series. His type of character is interesting when it's a matter of moral ambiguity. But punishing stupidly vague injustice and rule breaking with assault, which oh gee golly willikers there are certainly rules against, is so blatantly contradictory that I'm left completely unphased. I didn't think anything about Unzen was clever, interesting, or epic. I was substantially more interested in the dynamic between Medaka and Shiranui in this episode than anything Unzen had to offer. Until this point, I've found Medaka Box to be a pleasant but not great show, and this episode didn't really do anything to change that opinion like the majority seem to think it will.

But that's just me, so I'll enjoy watching the last 3 episodes with my unchanged moderate expectations. I hope the rest of you find your expectations met as well :)

For the first time the relationship between Medaka and Shiranui is adressed directly and it becomes clear that it is shaped by strong antipathy. Nevertheless Medaka welcomes her in the student council and Shiranui, even though she rejects the offer and thus maintaines her independence, agrees to help her out this time. Solely a measure taken to preserve major conflicts between the two of them or maybe there is more to it?

Medaka and Unzen represent two extremes when dealing with misdemeanants. While the former one personificates benignity the latter one uses draconian punishment for the smallest misstep. Obviously, everybody would agree that Unzen goes overboard with this kind of attitude but like in reality a stable system can't be uphold by saints permanently. Sometimes severe punishment is inevitable to make a point. Medaka has to face more challenging opponents and she won't be able to resort to pretentious moral suasion anymore to solve problems.

Battle-Shonens: My favorite type of manga/anime

I'm not surprised nor disappointed by this turn of events as I was long aware of it. A long while back I read +-10 random chapters and then a patiently for this adaptation.

May Medaka Box become a long running anime

I guess it would have felt more impactful if we didn't know it was coming. Unzen was great though, he needed even more screentime. Definitely in my top three (Zenkichi, Akune, Unzen). Unzen sounds like a mixture of Toshiro Hitsugaya (Bleach) and Komatsu (Toriko).

I wish it played out differently, surely the other council members are competent

The same voice actor plays toshiro and komatsu and also unzen and to your second question yes they all take part in battles but not in this arc.

What? did i just see a girl walking on the tips of her hair while palying a violin with her feet and doing her taxes. Oh its just the student council president its normal, it would have freaked me out if it was any one else.

And to think i almost didn't watch this series put off by a lead charracter with huge boobs. Now i realize she has to have giant boobs cause she just can't loose at anything

We have waited so long for this moment and I was personally kinda disappointed but I guess that's because I have seen much more crazy shit in the manga. Anyway, I liked Shiranui and Medaka in the beginning, they really can't get along and we got a good impression of that, Shiranui is also the biggest monster in Medaka Box, you should not underestimate her, Unzen. Another good moment was when Unzen attacked Medaka, she didn't dodge it because there was no reason to be attacked by him, she has a crazy logic and we will even see more of that, it's time for Medaka to show how ridiculously strong she is.

Didn't Medaka originally use Kurokami Phantom somewhere in this mess?

Interesting episode....definitely hate that new kid unzen now. Also if shiranui actually becomes vice prez I will set the anime score to 0 I swear to god...she is the most annoying creature I have ever encountered in any anime so far.

What the fuck was that? I don't even know. That was one of the most bizarre tonal shifts I've ever seen in a show. I don't even know what to say it was such a weird experience to watch it.

I'll have to see more but it still wasn't much of an improvment over the usual drek this show has been giving me.

The Unzen guys seems to be too strong. I was actually expecting her to trust in the other Student Council members and fight him herself there but the other resulted in some nice moments as well. The reaction of student body was hilarious to Medaka's monstrous acts. Onigase having second thoughts was expected. Shiranui saved the day again and it was nice her relationship with Medaka being made clear finally.
And slowly, you come to realize... It's all as it should be...

I wished they went a little farther with the arc in this episode, but it was still a very good adaption. Unzen is an enforcer of justice, but believes that people will not listen until you use force to stop them at the start. I don't know if he said those lines in the episode because that made it pretty clear.

Oh...

And I have to go see if people with AB bloodtypes have any stereotype to them. I feel as if it's all a joke from the author to do this :P

Lol, it was hinted the whole time if you stopped bitching and watched the show, dude. Even Medaka herself was a hint that 'special' and 'class 13' wasn't normal.

Anyone else who doesn't like it, drop it now. This is what it will be like from now on! Woo.

Ah man this episode is kind of like TTGL's episode 7. Crazy shift happening. Unfortunately while my memory of the manga is still fresh, I won't be seeing this for a while. But yeah, I almost dropped the manga when I started reading this arc.

So for like 3 episodes?
If it gets second season maybe more - but from what I read about orders it's not so sure that it will happen.

But it was ok episode - certainly better than those before (which is not an achievement) but it was nice I admit.
And it seems, from previous episodes, that DisCom sucks at whatever they are doing - like taking that dojo... still nice it's more energetic now :)

This is quite the turn this series made. This show just went full ridiculous. How is a commitee like this suddenly a usual thing in the school. This series looked pretty normal until now, but now the fantasy is starting to kick in and I can't really say I like it. The action was ok, but I just didn't really expect something like this.
