Medaka Box 03

Medaka Box

…. dammit, Medaka. Show some restraint for poor Zenkichi (and all the male viewers).

Three episodes in, still not used to her voice. And these parts they are animating are boring as fuck sigh.

Also, I told you guys Shiranui is Kyubey. I told you all.

    Fair enough. I haven’t really laughed or cheered watching Medaka this past couple weeks. But still, I wouldn’t call it boring.

    Is it because I don’t read the manga? Or is it just me and no one else find this entertaining at all?

    Well it sure as hell sucks that the first part of the manga is severely lacking in comparison with the rest of it. The first few episodes/chapters aren’t even representative of the entire series’s true nature.

    Goddamit 12 episodes. Sigh. Kumagawa.

    Hey, hey Zen…
    Wanna be my friend? Just sign this contract? 人◕ ‿‿ ◕人

    OR even better…
    Zen, you want Medaka to love you? How about you sign this contract? 人◕ ‿‿ ◕人

    Still, I can’t wait for that Kouki vs Zenkichi judo fight next week…

    She’s gonna get someone into a similar situation later though I doubt it’ll appear in the Anime.

    Quite like Kotobuki as Nabeshima not who I was expecting but still nice.

    lets see, the 2nd of the 3rd character intro and 1 more character to introduce before the first arc. 2 more eps before it starts getting interesting. But it will be the 2nd arc that will be really interesting.

    Could that Shiranui be any more dubious, don’t trust it at all and trust it even less now. (45 chapters in)

    Twelve episodes doesn’t look like it’s going to do the series justice.

    Anise_Punter: Indeed. At this rate we won’t even be brushing the surface of the Flask Plan, nevermind Kumagawa.

    That said… Mogana Kikaijima, where?

    12 episodes would never do this anime justice. It would need at least 24-26 to at least get to the meat of the flask plan. Naked apron sempai le sigh

    I really suspect right now that Medaka Box’s anime adaptation is going to meet the same fate as the Negima anime adaptation.

    It seems that every non-manga viewer automatically assumes that Medaka Box will remain Slice of Life/ Echii Rom Com in perpetuity.

    We’d never see Kumugawa, nor Najimu, etc….

    Honestly, the first arcs should have been sped through, and they should have tried to reach the Enforcer Arc by Episode 4 or 5, latest. I fear that by the time Medaka hits the edges of the genre shift, most who would have appreciated and loved later Medaka Box would have long dropped this anime by the Third Episode instead. And most anime only viewers who stuck on may well be bewildered, repulsed and aghast at the genre shift.
