Still no news on the cast?

If Season 2 is 12 episodes then each episode will need to over 3 chapters each so I'm hoping this is at least a minimum of 18 episodes for 2 chapters an episode.
(Flask Plan Arc = Chapters 22 - 57 = 36 Chapters divided by 12 = 3 chapters per episode)
That would be way to rushed imo.

It'll be a longer wait for the Minus arc but i wouldn't to see thats 35 chapters condensed into 12 episodes either. so yeah really hope the next Season/s are to be a minimum of 18 eps.

Worst show of Spring gets a second season.

Go Japan.


I dont think it was the worst but yes it wasnt far off it if you ask me. I'll certainly watch it but I don't expect to be wowed by it at all.

It's sad that some people can't understand the awesomness of Medaka Box. It's like those heroes that never get noticed for their good deeds.

Oh well, can't wait for this arc to be animated

Judging from your avatar I am guessing that you like hitman reborn, Medaka Box is quite like it in the way that the beginning of the anime is not nearly as good as what it becomes due to change in genre. so you should try get into again with this season.

Medaka Box's site has new visuals. BTW looking forward in season 2 because it's flask plan, I hope it will not suck.

Pretty much.. :/, better shows this spring need a second season.
Try to watch the second season. The first season was just actually nothing. It's just introduction of the characters. The real Medaka Box starts with the flask plan arc and the rest.


manga itself pretty much crap
the reason I continue to read/watch this because I never drop anything before...


That...is the stupidest reason I ever hear people say. "I don't like it, therefore, I will keep going on with it."

Drop it? I only logged on to say this, heh, because no one is going to hate you for dropping something. Feedback is good, complaining just helps no one..

But yeah, i'm happy to watch this animated. This arc and the next are the best, so the filler season- which I thought it was, they could have improvised it to be shorter and then lead into the turn of genres quicker or hinted it at the beggining so new people wouldn't be so surprised. Studio's fault for misinterpretation. *shrug*

And frankly, it's almost guaranteed that Medaka was planned for multiple cour from the start but just not announced as such. That's not uncommon. They obviously aren't reacting to good BD sales and going out of their way to do an unplanned sequel, that's for damned sure.


This makes me wonder... when was the last time a Shonen Jump adaption DIDN'T get at least 24+ episodes? I can't think of any recently.

I'm so happy and I really hope the Minus Arc gets animated... I really want to know who is going to voice Kumagawa; so far the VAs did a really good job in season one.

Tard I am merely giving out my opinion that instead of the anime industry as a whole waste their time on boring crap like this why not something that NEEDS another season?

I love when people "clarify" their posts and say the exact same thing I've already replied to. And then try to call others "tards". ::shakes head::

Such as Haruhi Suzumiya or Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai?

Haganai is getting a sequel, what are you even talking about?

School anime genre is what I am focusing on since it is a relevant genre to the subject at hand.

Just being "school anime" is still completely irrelevant. Medaka and Haruhi 1) are published in different media (manga vs light novel), 2) are adapted by different animation studios and staff (Gainax vs KyoAni), 3) are published by different print publishers (Shueisha vs Kadokawa Shoten), and 4) handled by different anime home video distributors (Media Factory vs Kadokawa), and 5) are not the same genre and generally 6) are in no other way shape or form remotely connected in any sense such that a sequel for one would have any effect on the creation of a sequel for the other. In short, you phrased your "opinion" in the form of asinine non sequitur, so don't complain when someone points out that the question makes absolutely no sense.

And frankly, it's almost guaranteed that Medaka was planned for multiple cour from the start but just not announced as such. That's not uncommon. They obviously aren't reacting to good BD sales and going out of their way to do an unplanned sequel, that's for damned sure.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzz....Oh wait? What the shit? Their making another season of this boring crap? What? WHY?! Why not make another season of Haruhi Suzumiya?! That is a shitton better than this crap.


Why you ask?
Because they had to get pass the crap to get to the gold.

It's like One Piece or Reborn,it starts out either decent or not so great & gets better as the series go along.
But unlike those fellow WSJ series,Medaka Box had the unfortunate circumstance of getting adapted into 12 episodes which only covered the "crap" part of the series thus giving a "bad" 1st impression to those new to the series & leading some,like yourself,to wonder why the industry would waste their time on adapting this manga series.

The two series have absolutely nothing to do with one another and the continuation of one has no effect on the other.
