Yeah, I just don't like the whole "I'm gonna kill you" then "let's be friends" 5 minutes later. It's just not believable. It's like she forgot that he's tried repeatedly to murder, or at least inflict grievous bodily harm on her friends.

Though it does fit in her character as in believing that "everyone can be reformed", and to be fair no one sustained serious injury except the two involved.

That's Medaka in a nutshell...
It gets worst later on xD

Medaka is not a believable person. Wasn't that the whole point of Unzen's speech? If you watch this show and at any point ever think "Medaka isn't behaving believably" then I think you've missed the point entirely.

As for why she suddenly changed her mind, it's clearly because those very friends who she's avenging came to stop her.

Of course, it's worth noting that Medaka repeatedly denies that this is what she believes. Even before she got angry.

As far as I'm aware, the manga isn't licensed....
Though while it may look like a ton of chapters to read (if you start where the anime ends you should have around 130 chapters to read as of this weak) due to the next arcs being some of the best in the series and where the action really starts to pick up, you blow through the 130 chapters rather quickly. I know I stopped reading Medaka Box at one point and when I came back to it I had 100 chapters or so that I've missed but I read through them in about an afternoon or so.

Just go check it out at CxC, if you liked the anime, especially these last few episodes then I guarantee you'll love the manga.

Also it's Weekly manga so the chapters don't have too many pages inside.

let's put it this way, at this stage of the story Medaka is more of a character than a person. She is very similar to pre-awaken Kotomine, following what she thinks others expected her to do than doing what she wants to do. There's a set logic to that way of thinking and she can still pull it off believably, albeit still an empty shell when she does it.

We know what she wants, but we don't know what she truly desires. It's that path of discovery of her real character which makes part of the fun in the story.

Sorry if I'm bothering you with this too much, guys, but that's just too funny!

We'll get the second season for sure. Believe it!

That's a plot point, pretty much. It's not supposed to be believable.

@iby right now its in the 400's according to amazon.jp but if it sells more then 6k at this point i'd be shocked though i'd be very glad since i really want the a certain someones arc animated and that require two more seasons and it selling well would make it happen.

And I was talking about the same thing.
The place in the rank you've posted is the rank among other anime, and I've posted the place among the all DVDs.

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #2,577 in DVD (See Top 100 in DVD) -> that's what Stalker is showing right now.
#406 in DVD > ブルーレイ (Blu-ray) > アニメ (Anime) -> and that's what you was talking about.
#624 in DVD > アニメ (Anime)

For example Nazo no Kanojo X places are:
Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #74 in DVD (See Top 100 in DVD)
#14 in DVD > ブルーレイ > アニメ
#19 in DVD > アニメ

The episode turned out better than I hoped. But honestly I am quite surprised how decently Medaka Box seems to be received among my peers though. Normally I would expect to be one of the only few to follow this type of shows.

Early medaka box spoiler providers are saying that medaka box has been given a second season which means that the original rumor of it being split cour was indeed true
