I'm going to reserve my judgment until after I've actually read the chapter. Can't exactly say I'm pleased though.

Hm, I'll have to gather my thoughts a little more before coming to a decision on what I feel right now about this chapter.

Oh, and it's out.

Most of the chapter was actually quite good, and the sort of believable character drama I really got into Medaka Box for to begin with.
But Iihiko Shishime? Fifteen seconds? Fuck no, that's astoundingly fucking retarded. I want to drop this terrible shit but I can't, because I have to know how it ends. I feel like a fucking Bleach reader.

I think my main complaint is that shit is just way too fast. I can't get aclimatized properly. I mean, at one moment we're exploring Shiranui's character, and then at the other, BAM! Wall to the face.
Plus, I kinda liked Shiranui's "older" characterization better. We used to think she didn't give a fuck and literally cared for only one person in the entire school. But that's just opinion.

Edit: My reading comprehension might be off on my second point, though.

I guess these cerebus retcons can get a bit tiring. I don't really know if I like the direction they're taking Shiranui's character.

Ouch Hitoyoshi, being told of his bridging status to Medaka...that's just harsh. Perhaps it's just jerkass facade, but still..

And when are we going to learn about Real Eater?

This was one of the few things that's obviously been planned for a long time.

Skills? What are those? We have Styles and magic bullshit demons now.

Maybe for the same reason as me?

Allow me to explain.

When I first read the manga, I liked Shiranui because she clearly did not give a shit for anyone and anything except for Zenkichi. That made her unique. If she's just another character who "opened-up" to the whole of Hakoniwa, I think that would kill something that made her unique.

Although, that would depend on how you read this chapter

Really strange is it not?

I think there's really no doubt about it anymore. Zenkichi never was the main character, even after and during the Not-Equal arc, when we were lead to believe he was the main-character all along/would be. That kinda cheapens Nishio's supposed deconstruction of Mary Sues by, well, completely.

But whatever. I'm past the point of caring, I guess.

@Kaios Erran

I just said I might not like it. I didn't mean to imply that he's just pulling things out.

So Kumagawa will always "lose", Zenkichi will always be the support, Ajimu will never fail....

And then it will turn out that Kumagawa was the main character all along!

On a less joking manner though, it's something I've been thinking about recently, but I've suddenly felt/realized that Kumagawa's char concept is closer to Nios's other 'protagonists' (like from Zaregoto or Bakemonogatari) then Zen. At least in my opinion.

Well, he is getting his own novel isn't he? That's gotta count for something.

Well, if you represent the average mentality of the Jump readership, at least the manga might gain more popularity now.

Didn't Nishio just finish telling us that Ajimu is all-powerful?

Yea, I'm sure the narrator said that. And I'm sure Zenkichi wasn't the one narrating this time, since he can say falliable things.

C'mon. This manga has no rules.
