I doubt it. I'm not sure there's enough information density, since there are so many fewer numbers than syllables. The lines would have to be much longer to convey what was being said in Japanese, no matter what the conversion rule would be. Then again, I'm not an expert in these things. I suppose there could be some kind of compression technique in place, although of course that would make the code much more complicated.

Too bad that Medaka Box is doing badly in Japan, because I really like this show. ;_; Unzen's sister didn't make a very impression showing though, being manhandled by a secondary character in their first appearance doesn't make the Abnormal 13 seem very intimidating...

I hope this season goes far enough along to shed some light on why Shiranui and Medaka hate each other; I'm really curious what could cause someone as benevolent as Medaka and glib as Shiranui to hate another.

The sister isn't part of the Thirteen Party. The fact that she's able to be manhandled by a mere Special like Nekomi is part of the reason why.

Do the number code work in English? Just curios though.

Anyway I really hope to see Medaka's brother in this season.

My guess it would have something to do with their mutual acquaintance.

Also, as a random Avatar request, can anyone make one of the part were our favorite (ex-) Judo Captain threw off her uniform and it landed on Medaka's head? I found that part hilarious for some reason.

Just when I thought the action was over, they decide to bring in 13 other characters that are much stronger than Medaka's last enemy

They destroyed the school with just the 2 of them, i'm expecting the world to be torn in two by the end of the anime

I watched this first season, but I'm debating whether or not to check out the second since I didn't particularly like the first... It seemed to rush things towards the end which is why I'm really turned off by the thought of a second season. I'm afraid that they may impress me at first yet again, but then whip out the crazy DBZ crap they had at the end of the first season. Any thoughts on this? I don't really want to waste my time on this series if the second season isn't any better than the first... ;3;

Well, based off the first episode of the second season, you should more or less expect it to escalate from there.

the general consensus being that the first arc(therefore first season) is the weakest one

Well, as the show's title says, Medaka's going to fight more Abnormals. So if you didn't like the 'DBZ crap' between her and Unzen in the first season, I'm afraid this won't be your cup of tea.

Medaka Box shifts from a light hearted school-comedy to a full blown action anime in S2.

And now some comparison time!
Spoiler for faces 1:

Spoiler for faces 2:

Spoiler for scars 3:

Well, at least it was one interesting fan-service moment in this episode:
Spoiler for 0:

And then they're trolling us hard again with these things in the ED...

Since there's a bit more material this time around they'll probably be speeding it up a bit when we get to the important fights though personally 2 chapter pacing has never really bothered me since that's kind of standard for shonen.

Also why must you torture us Gainax? Even the ED song trolls pretty hard...

I find it troublesome that they're making the series more light-hearted with this stuff... on the other hand I understand that they've already decided to do only the pre-Flask Plan stuff in the 1st season (that's why it was so slow) and also decided not to jump to the real beginning of the arc in this episode.

It's not that I disliked it at all, I just found to to come almost completely out of the blue. Almost as if they ran out of ideas and just decided to throw Medaka into super saiyan mode. It just....confused me. But it gave me a great laugh, I'll give it that.

Well that explains all.

I remember reading somewhere that Nisioisin had to change the series genre after a few chapters because of low popularity, so it became an action shounen (not sure if this is entirely true, though).
Then, Nisio being Nisio, he started experimenting with his manga and... well, you'll see if the anime covers arc 3 and beyond.

Anyway, I truly expected to see the laboratories' door in this episode, but it was slower than I initially thought. Maguro gave me a good laugh though, I like his VA.
