As much as I hate to say it, people want Zen to be abnormal because they'd like to see him get more screen time and actually do something that doesn't revolve around Medaka. I noticed a lot of people saying Zen is the main character, which, though I wish it was true, isn't. Medaka's the main character and Zen's just the dude who narrates her life... Kind of like a rip-off of Kyon from Haruhi. Both are snarky, bot are regular guys dragged around by god-like beings. Maybe that explains why I don't really get into this manga much... I hated Haruhi.

I think the problem is that many dislike Medaka so of course they're going want to turn to someone else and want them to have more chapter time, go figure...

What's the box...?

It would be hilarious if Medaka did a Seitokai Yakuindomo with her box.

They can dislike her all they want but that doesn't change the fact that Medaka is quite clearly the main character. To drive this point home each of the arc bosses (Unzen, Miyakonojou, and finally Kumagawa) all were interested in Medaka while they all could care less about Zenkichi. Each time she encountered one they have made her grow and gain a better understanding of herself. That and the encounters moved the plot forward.

The box is that thing Medaka said she would challenge the board of directors with if they are trying to open their own pandora's box in chapter 58. =P

I've never seen a normal person walk up the side of a building, so there's got to be something special about him...

OK.....a battle between student councils, this ought to be worth reading.

Medaka knows she can't fight against a Minus and win. Her previous fight against Kumagawa in Middle School seemed to sink into that thick skull of hers.

Is anyone else hoping she doesn't fight? I wonder who they'll complete the team with?

I think she will fight, too, but there should be a twist.

But considering the last fights, the author is not very good with such things. I would like to see battles like in Jojo´s Bizarre Adventures (tactic and very, very dangerous), but it seems the author prefers short and uncomplicated fights.

If I would have the choice I would like the fights in this order:

Well, I must admit, I like my Shonen Battle Manga cliches...

Well, it's been getting better lately and Emukae is a riot. Not to mention, everything that's come in has been crap lately. Metallica would have been a hit 10 years ago before Naruto and One Piece helped flood the landscape with fantasy action mangas. But now, its just rehashed stuff. Too bad, too, as it had interesting premise. SWOT is just generic action.

Though I'm still not a huge fan of MB, it does have some great moments in it.

As for the current arc,

I'm sensing another "I told you so" moment being created here.

The first weeks have typically been good but I need to see a rise in how much it sells in the second week like other series have done as of late. Or even a rise in the first week really.

Medaka should be covered until the end of this year. By that time the chapter number should just be hitting the 80s and ironically it will be an extremely crucial time period from then on.
