I want to beat them. Even though I'm not cool, or strong, or just, or beautiful, or cute, or pretty, I want to beat the cool, strong, just, beautiful, cute, and pretty people. Even though I wasn't blessed with talent, even though I'm stupid and have a bad personality, have bad grades, am misguided and am a good for nothing, I want to beat the talented, smart, likeable, overachieving people. I want to beat those with friends when I can't have friends. I want to beat the people who work hard when I can't work hard. I want to beat the the victorious people when I can't win. I want to beat the happy people when I'm miserable. Even if I'm hated, even if I'm despised, even if I'm useless, I want to prove that I'm better than the main characters!

i hope Ginax will air season 3... :(

Whoa, It looks like we are gonna see more of what looks like Rias Gremory from HSDxD in a form of Kurokami Medaka.

Read some of the comments on this thread already.

It will probably be one of the most surprising series I ever seen.

Another class president show? Can't be further than the truth.

I wondered why Gainax would decide to pick this rather "normal" sounding manga.
And reading up to chapter 21, I understand.

Suspension of belief, just what I expected from Gainax.

Aw noooo! I've been looking forward to the Medaka Box anime since it was announced, but now it's ruined by aki toyosaki. :( Out of all voice actor's, she's pretty much the only one i just can't stand. Okay, it's enough for small side characters, but for a role like Medaka? Hell no. They should have gone with some good voices like VOMIC ones or Hikasa Youko like allflying.

Oh well, at least i guess i should be able to watch it with sound turned-off or something.



That's right, that's right! How could they let her do it?! Seems to me tehy don't know Medakas personality... Well, but it took them a lot of time before deciding an anime for it, so I'm happy =D

WHAT... why change the ones from the vomic, they were perfect.

Damn... can't see Aki doing Medaka at all O.o

Secretly hoping they're like their childhood voices or something lol optimism.


yup2 the vomic version is soo good(sadly i can't find the videos in youtube and the channgel Haitenpepoo315 disappeared)

the voices where.

Zenkichi: Hiroshi Kamiya

Medaka: Ami Koshimizu

the bossy Kallen voice is soo awesome :P

very excited for this :D

*Edit

*Slaps himself

it seems Medaka in the vomic series was voiced by a different person.

Megumi Toyoguchi voiced her

http://medakabox.wikia.com/wiki/Medaka_Box_VOMIC

she sounded like Kallen for some reason O___O

Strange, IMO the only one who can pull Medaka character is Hikasa Youko (Amakusa Shino, anyone?) :\

but I always pictured Medaka having a sexy deep voice. Maybe she can pull it off though?

Even one episode of UN-GO should make it clear she can. There's a lot more to Toyosaki's range than Yui.

Medaka: Toyosaki Aki

The fuck? ...I mean, I like her, but I always pictured Medaka having a sexy deep voice. Maybe she can pull it off though?

That Ono Yuki seems to be getting main roles now.
Aside from the second season of Kimi to Boku, he's also one of the main characters of the other Jump anime in Spring, Kagami in Kuroko no Basket.
And now he's Zenkichi. His career seems to be doing good. Personally I didn't like Kamiya Hiroshi in the VOMIC of Medaka Box so let's see if he's perfect for it.

Aki Toyosaki....
Imma gonna reserve my opinion until I hear her. I keep forgetting she's Kunieda in Beelzebub you know.
Megumi Toyoguchi was perfect in the VOMIC though.

Aki will prove the doubters (or at least those who don't reach irreversible conclusions before the show even airs) wrong, yet again. I have no reason to doubt her.

That manga sounds really weird...

Nov 27, 2011 7:47 PM by Neko_Nozomi-Chan

The manga is so crazy it's funny. I hope Gainax does a great job on it's Suspense of Belief. because it's acheived that in the manga

Nov 26, 2011 6:51 PM by GodlyKyon

Holy shit, look at the genre. Looks like it has a bit of everything xD

I'll look into the manga, see if it is worth while, if it is I will watch the anime.
