Well, the next episode will include another 2 chapters, and with this they'll clear the first 3 arcs and maybe start the Flask Plan Arc, but I can't see a meaning in this if they'll do only 12 episodes in one cour.

Ep. 2: Well, that's one way to "humanize" someone who's portrayed as a perfect, super-powerful being: make them show signs of jealousy, stupidity, and an unhealthy affection towards animals.
It must be really lonely all the way up their in the clouds, where Medaka lives. Hard for people to relate to a god, afterall...

Why do you think Imaishi left Gainax!

They won't play it smart since Gainax is a shell of their former selves and they'll just pump out a lazy adaption without even knowing why the manga is as popular as it is.

They're releasing it quite late, aren't they? (Nisemono's tactic?)
It's already dropped to #270... and that's after Episode 2 aired. Medaka is Medaka and Zen doesn't have enough swag to carry this series period.

It was rumored to be split cour from the start... along with Gainax as the studio and Imaishi as the director... which may have been true @ the time.. but he left Gainax....

Well it started off alright on Amazon rankings (peaked @ around #36 after it got listed) but just checking now.... has dropped to #240 for the Bluray and is #5,420 for DVD... and Episode 2 aired..

To quote a post from the AnimeOnDVD sales thread...

Granted when they said that Medaka BD1 was at 76, now it's at 38, and the rest of the volumes are all sitting at 112 - 116.

To me it sounds like it's doing pretty good, not great, it's not a hit, but it's still pretty good none-the-less.
Maybe he read the post wrong.. but regardless it's not performing well.

I wonder how many times they're going to shove Medaka's flaws down our throat and shout about how she's human after all, with all the subtlety of a brick to the head...

Well everything else was funny at least. Seriously loled at the dog chasing Zen.

Wait, so do we know how many episodes this show has? I thought it was 45, but now it's apparently 12?

The 45 Episodes was listed on a single site and had no source to confirm it, 12 episodes is from the Blu-Ray and DVD listing. It has always been 12... and we'll probably get 12 more in 3-6 months after these 12 finish.

aw looks like Gainax is going downhill for the past 2 years, the last success they have i think was Rebuild of Evangelion 2.0 movie, everything they done later like Panty and Stocking, Dantalian no Shoka, Hanamaru Youchien, Houkago no Pleiades are all not selling well as far as i know

im liking the art and frantic animation of Medaka Box its like Gurren Lagann animation and i love that show, hope the sales will turn around for the better

Correction. While they had a hand in the Rebuild of Eva movies, the animation production is under Anno's own Studio Khara, not Gainax. The current Eva franchise is pretty much no longer under their name, just like most of their famous animators who ran off.

Can you please fill me in on the story why he left since I haven't heard of this yet. And is it really that bad as you claim it to be? Yeah, he was the key animator for some of Gainax's works and director of TTGL and PSG. But he's just one guy.

He was the best director they had left and he took a lot of talented people along with him, combine that with Anno founding his own studio for the Evangelion movies... (Khara) and you don't have much left.

What, 12? Is this gonna be split into various seasons or what. How much do they expect to cover with just 12 episodes. Although the next one seems is gonna cover 3 chapters of the manga, I wonder.
