Oh wow, that does NOT sound like Toyosaki Aki at all. It sounds like a different voice actress but for the moment, I just can't place it. Though I guess we'll have to deal with it.

And this PV and the one before it has seriously been setting this anime up like some kind of happy cheerful student council anime, where Medaka is merely a charasmatic girl with big boobs. Wouldn't be surprised to see the swarm of haters once this anime comes around.

And it seriously sucks that it probably will only be around 12 episodes, which isn't even enough to get to the GENRE SHIFT, yet alone the start of the flask plan, which I was really hoping to see. Though hell unless they really speed things along, Kikaijima will only join them in like episode 6. We'll see how Gainax plans to pull this one off.

if i don't remember wrong, it was said the show will be a 2-cour like for Fate-Zero, so it should be a total 24 episodes (but it seems it's only a rumor passed forum-by-forum blog-by-blog with unknown origin)

WHAT THE ****. VA's are amazing, I just got reminded of that again. Unlike I thought, it was great and I think Medaka will be awesome with Toyosaki Aki as the VA

Medaka Box is Nishio's dismantling of the tropes of Shounen (specifically Jump) work. Shounen Jump is mainstream; Nishio Ishin is mainstream; so all in all I think what you can expect is an amazing clusterfuck of brilliance rather than any sort of high literature.

Leave any preconceptions and your suspension of disbelief at the door. Particularly during the early part of the series, you're in for a violent shock if you get too comfortable. The one piece of advice I would give people is not to make any sort of presumptions about what this series is "supposed" to be.

(If you ask me, beyond any genre conventions, the central theme being explored by Medaka Box is a question of humanity and success. What is a perfect human? What does it mean to win? Why are people differentiated from each other and how can we accept our arbitrary destinies? Medaka Box, for its own part, does have its share of screwing around in empty satire and posturing, sophistic talk. However, in the end I think it also has a lot of genuinely meaningful things to say along the lines of the above questions.)


I like Aki Toyosaki's voice for Medaka, but do think it could be improved. She's not nearly as authoritative-sounding as she could be if her voice can be drowned out by music during a big speech. Honestly though, I'm pretty excited to have such a big name as Aki Toyosaki who's also typically typecasted for cute characters doing Medaka's voice. I think you can tell that she is challenging herself and also that she herself has great affection for the character. Those are the ingredients if you ask me for a genuinely impressive performance and likeable character.

Well, that PV made it clear exactly how much money is being put into this project.

None, that is. QUALITY already.

I kind of like the voice Toyosaki is pulling off for Medaka. Not as... aggressive as I had in mind/would prefer, but it's definitely in the right area. Can't make a judgement on the song at this time, but at least it didn't automatically sound like ear poison or anything.

As for the rest of the PV... Um... Is this really by the studio I THINK it's by? Compared to their work's USUAL level of quality, that looked kind of mediocre.

Well, the GAINAX now is not what it was - if you want to compare, remember This Ugly Yet Beautiful World, He is My Master and Houkago no Pleiades (well, the last isn't must...). It was the same director in these.

I am... honestly surprised at Toyosaki's attempt at Medaka. With this I can finally admit that she has a respectable range. I don't find it perfect as Medaka but it's much, much, much better than I expected. Acceptable, even.

Well I suspected as much, but just good to confirm.

Also, judging from this tweet they're going to broadcast VOMIC version of Medaka with the new seiyu every Friday throughout March.

Looks like Gainax is going with a straight up adaptation. Sigh. Ah well, I'll watch it anyways.

If they're going to go for straight adaptation like hinted then this'll be medicore at best. I'll watch it anyway since Unzen will likely show up at least. Other than that my expectations are all fiction at zero.
