Medaka Box 02

Medaka Box

Man, Shiranui has some really appalling tastes.

Can’t believe they animated the doggy Medaka… oh well, it IS in the manga.

Medaka Box

I still laughed like mad at it.

Second week of Ainama Medaka has finally made me realize that her voice is just too cute for Medaka’s role. Feeling her quite less this week as Medaka really.

    Sounding like Inoue Marina sometimes, which in turn could have been a better choice…

    As much as I would have preferred someone else to voice Medaka, we can’t possibly spend all this time complaining about Toyosaki Aki.

    Though I would one day love to read the ensuring complaints/arguments about Kumagawa’s voice actor IF he ever gets to appear.

    I for one think Aki’s doing one of her best roles, next to Inga probably…
    Ad im starting to find her less “annoying” maybe with time she gets even better and less “soaring”…

    There’s to much RieKu and HanaKana too as of late, not matter how good they are, it starts to get on my ears…

    Toyosaki really doesn’t fit to Medaka, Overflowing Love should be quite nice though. Kumagawas Seiyuu gonna be really interesting but I have a feeling we’re gonna get a cliffhanger after the Flask Plan or something not getting our chance to enjoy Naked Apron-senpai. Lastly WhyNot left me in despair after 45 sec of watching ep2 by leaving out Zenkichis “devil” when talking about his jersey+uniform looks. That’s not something to be left out it’s like dropping Last Orders “misaka wa misaka”.

    Um, can we get over the criticism/bashing on Aki’s role as Medaka and move on to this episode!

    And speaking of this episode, not only Medaka is hawt in her doggie suit but she “likes” animals so much that all of the animals cower in fear!

    If they finish the flask arc.. we’ll get a voiced Kumagawa…

    “Hey now! Don’t jump to conclusions please, they all looked like this when I got here, so… THIS ISN’T MY FAULT! Hey there Medaka-chan it’s me, Kumagawa!?”

    That is if they won’t end it after Miyakonojou. To get Kumagawa they’d still need to get up to the somethings floor. If they just cut it off after Miyankonojou and go for some “and they lived happily ever after” we won’t get any Kumagawa. First op only seems like first 12episodes gonna go till Unzen so unless they gonna go for 52 or more episodes we won’t get much Kumagawa anyways. Think I created some great opportunities for the Grammarhammer but meh..

    I like her voice and don’t understand why everyone’s complaining. I’m sure she’ll start to sound much more imperious later, when the anime gets to PROSTRATE BEFORE ME and other such scenes.

    Right now Medaka is a “cute” character, not the bully she eventually becomes.

    Yeah, I don’t get the complaints about her voice. I think Aki is just fine. And I’m loving the anime!

    Only 17 chapters into the manga. That Shiranui is not to be trusted.

    Don’t really have anything else.

    I think everyone disliking her voice knows what will happen and how this voice will turn into a mess sooner or later.

    But for now, I think this si just fine. Can´t wait for the swim meet.

    There is a great disturbance in the Force. It feels that the ratings in Japan are doing down in Japan for reasons I do not understand. And this is only in the 2nd show.

    @Di Gi Kazune
    It isn’t too hard to see why this series will be very badly received by people, both English and Japanese alike. I myself can think of many reasons.

    1. Gainax (no longer “Gainax”)
    2. NisioIsin (high expectations)
    3. Medaka’s boobs
    4. Shounen genre
    5. Medaka’s perfect personality
    6. Student Council (lots of people hate these kinds of setups)

    The ratings are down simply for one good reason. The anime is animating the shit parts of the show.

    These are the parts that almost got the manga cancelled in the first place.

    You know, this has to be the first time I’ve seen such extensive bitching about an adaption being faithful to the manga.

    Truly, a strange experience.

    My guess: Medaka Box adaptation will go down the same way as the Negima adaptations. It’ll never get to the good parts, hence giving viewers an utterly hackneyed and erroneous view of the true nature of the story later on.

    Really, anime adaptations are very unkind to genre changes, unless the genre change happens extremely early on (try Episode 3). There’s not going to be a shocker of the equivalent of a “Mami Tomoe getting eaten” moment to save Medaka Box, I feel.

    Well, since we’re going through the chapters at a pretty fast clip, we might get to the “good parts” (debatable, since many ABSOLUTELY LOATHED the genre change to shonen fighting) sooner than we think.

  22. Andsmeuth Said,

    If they loathed the first part of Medaka Box, and loathed the genre change that set the tone for the rest of the manga Third Arc onwards, they might as well drop it right here, right now.

    Of course “good parts” is debatable, but then again, Medaka Box really only comes into it’s own once it becomes a Shounen Fighting manga that mocks cliches and breaks the fourth wall gratuitously.

    I personally feel they’d have been way better off compressing 22 chapters into three episodes, treating each of the early jobs like Nichibro sketches, (reserving the longest narratives for the Student Council Members) and start a full narrative from episode 4 onward.
