Medaka Box 04

Medaka Box

…. dammit Gainax, don’t give us manservice. The story at this part is barely tolerable as it is giving us manservice like this doesn’t help dammit.

Medaka Box

Give us more of this instead. At least there will be something to fap laugh about!

    Well I wouldn’t be surprised if the only people left watching this show after these episodes are manga readers.

    These first 10 chapters don’t really leave much to be desired for do they?

    Isn’t the next bit the picture request? Or does swimming come first?

    And moe and slice of life and echii fanservice lovers. Cue to howls of outrage from that section as Medaka Box takes a sharp turn into Shounen action come episode 8-10.

    You forgot Gainax and Nisio Isin fans– and I don’t remember any of that happening when Akamatsu pulled it off, anyways. I can see how everyone’s itching to get to the good part of the manga, but I honestly still don’t see what’s so wrong about the show so far.

    Well, there IS one thing that bothered me about episode 4, and that’s how every time I hear the guy’s voice I can’t help but picture Waver from F/Z

    I’m referring to an anime only viewer standpoint. Akamatsu’s Negima (a story with more in common with Medaka Box than Medaka Box has to Haruhi Suzumiya, IMO) never got the chance for the genre shift to be properly animated. The Evangeline Arc was treated like some action accidentally got dropped into a Harem Echii Comedy, while the Kyoto arc was disgracefully compressed, and given so little screen time and if I recall correctly, was truncated and badly butchered.

    Medaka Box, hopefully won’t screw up the genre shift. Nisio Isin and Gainax fans certainly will stick to that anime, and might not react that adversely. I’m referring to the large group of neutral viewers who have neither read the Medaka Box Manga, nor are Nisio or Gainax fans.

    Still, the moment of truth for this adaptation would probably be in the last third of the Cour. How they handle it would make or break the adaptation for me. Hopefully, they are saving their budget for the last four to five episodes….
