But anyway, if we take Ajimu's descriptions of 'protagonists' to be true, then that means the only one who can defeat Iihiko are other protagonists, meaning Medaka herself or possibly Zen, if he still qualifies as an 'artificial protagonist'.

Although thinking about it again from yet another view, I have the feeling Shiranui will play a large role, since for the most part this arc seems to focus on her
12,858,051,967,633,864 skills I believe, and Zen is in a way the "protagonist" of this still I guess

Wait a minute... if Devil Style basically means that the manga (it's a very meta-ability, after all) won't go the way it is expected for the protagonist... then the fact that it didn't become very important is defying expectation, as clearly outlined by nearly everyone's posts. Devil Style is at it again!!

Maybe. But if so, I think I'd like Nishio to kinda show some restraint with it like he did in the True Flask Plan Arc. That seemed to be the perfect medium for the ability.

Now, I don't think anyone who read the Jet Black Bride arc would've considered Zenkichi the protagonist, but, when you read the previous arc, it's more than apparent.

Because he just dosen't feel like the protagonist anymore. And that's freakishly important. At least, for me. Since it was basically the point of the True Flask Plan arc.

Wow Nisio, why you always giving the girls haircuts.

MB 9th this week in TOC, but overall position still pretty bad.

2 weeks of sales for the latest volume are pathetic, seems to be declining....
22. Medaka Box #17 (28,771 / 133,929)

From M-H

Quote:
Jump Series ~ 8 Week Averages
1.One Piece  2.0(―0.0)
2.Naruto     3.6(▼0.3)
4.Nisekoi    5.4(△0.5)
5.Toriko     5.8(▼0.2)

7.Haikyuu!!   7.4(▼0.3)
8.Kuroko     7.5(▼0.1)
9.Sket Dan    8.1(▼1.1)

10.Bleach      12.6(―0.0)
11.Beelzebub   13.4(▼0.4)
12.Reborn!     13.5(―0.0)
13.Gintama    13.9(▼0.3)

14.Kochikame  15.3(▼0.3)
15.Kurogane   15.4(△0.9)
16.Medaka    15.8(△0.8)

New Series ~ 5 Week Averages
3.Assassination Class    4.6(△0.3) - (Above Toriko's ch.11)
6. PSI Kusuo Saiki      6.2(△0.6) - (Same as Haikyuu!!'s ch.18)
17.Koisome Momiji     17.6(▼0.2) - (Same as Ririentaru's ch.19)
18.Takamaga          17.7(▼2.1) - (Same as Shounen Shikku's ch.10)
+ Takamaga is dead
+ Koisime Momiji isn't far off though Jump gave it a color page this issue so they might try for a bit longer with this one, probably due to the next point...
+ Hunter x Hunter just went on hiatus

- Low TOC, declining sales, anime had no effect on improvement, bigger series have been cut for less, you do the math
- Aside from Kurogane, Nisekoi and Haikyuu, worst selling series of the "established" ones, and Nisekoi and Haikyuu are on the rise.
- A.Class and PSI being hits means less buffers, if these two had came out the same year as Medaka Box did we would never had got a Minus arc...

I think they'll never cut Kochikame, so my hope is koisome momiji overtakes Kurogane and bleach finally ends...
Naruto should be ending soon too, i can never tell with Reborn though.. It seems to be at the final arc. Naruto should have another ~10 chapters, but i srsly dno, they might drag it out for a year -,-
i'm enjoying Koisome Momiji far more than Nisekoi, unlike the japanese readership apparentlyl.

In its second week. Thank you for searching the info in a place brimming with ignorance, but vol. 17 sold 105.158 copies in its first week.

Average to good position in the TOC, each volume selling close to 200k a month after the release, the anime gets second season. You do the math.

100k is the threshold anyway.

You say low rankings before but these last two weeks medaka box has ranked around the middle being above established series such as beelzebub, reborn, bleach and gintama and with two of those series and one that is usually ranked in bottom 5 (koisome momiji) not being ranked this week with medaka box still not in the bottom 5 i shall say its going to bé safe for a while which must bé a dissapointment to you.
