This is what I'd call a good plot twist. And yet it's in the bottom 5... how unfair.

Last example I read that did this was Clear Note from Konjiki no Gash Bell. And considering Medaka Box appears to be aimed at a slightly older audience, I can see Kumagawa being that demented. He is already pretty screwed up.

None of that takes into account Hokenshitsu which I doubt hardly approaches the sales of Medaka Box.

Its like people haven't learnt a single thing over the last year...
Hokenshitsu hasn't even charted yet meaning at the least it hasn't been putting up 30K for most of its volumes so far while Medaka Box volume 4 quadrupled that mark.

While I do agree with you, I don't want to completely rely on the new series dying in this second year at the moment mainly because Hunter x Hunter is always a looming threat. Especially if Hokenshitsu doesn't start tanking again at such a time.

However, if Togashi pulls another 2 year hiatus like last time that should be enough to have the chapters needed for an anime which would cover us.

The fellow is pretty interesting from what i've read so far, one of Nishio's better creations and I expected that he would keep MB out of the bottom 5 for quite some time, though surprisingly, the JP readers seem to disagree.

The chapter with Kumagawa isn't ranked yet. I don't think it will be for at least another 3-4 weeks. Zenkichi's mom being ranked another 7 away from now.

and i guess tankobon will increase by atleast 30K since all the lolicons are gonna get a piece of this
My Japanese sucks so I can't fully make out her character. And since Zenkichi already gets brought up enough in the thread as it is, I don't have much to say about how this personally effects him. I'm mostly waiting on the chapter to be translated before talking more about his mom.

While it would be...creepy if your prediction comes true she wouldn't be showing up until volume 7 which should be coming out in November. Unless they all jump on the back volumes...

The chapter that was ranked was where Zenkichi hugged Medaka and brought her back. I think people would have preferred to see him fight her instead of your typical shounen cliche incident. :P Not to mention, electric hands were a bit much. Lol. The chapter where Kumagawa first appears won't be ranked for 2-3 more weeks, I think (we've got to finish the King fight first).

I was really hoping he had some supress power he was going to use to save her, then they have a flashback of why he can't use. but dangg, I do like this manga, but i think it deserves a little more credit than it gets, i don't find it that badd.

It's an acquired taste, like caviar. Some people didn't really like it in the beginning, many quit because of the sudden genre shift, others quit because Zenkichi became a side character for much of the manga, while others just can't stand Medaka. Some hate the randomness or don't find it funny.

Personally, I think it's an ok manga. Not the worst I've read, not the best, funny at times, with a lot of good concepts. I just feel it doesn't live up to Nishio's normally great works... Partially because the art doesn't really fit Nishio's style and doesn't convey the characters emotions too well (for example, Medaka's crying for Zenkichi came off fairly cheesy) and partially because Nishio's normal syle of character development doesn't suit manga. He needs a lot of words to make his characters come to life and he just doesn't have that luxury in this format, which I feel has lead to poor execution of some of the ideas. Still, I find many of the characters interesting, like Zen, Munakata, Unzen, Kumagawa and Kikaijima. Don't really feel much for the rest, except Medaka, who I dislike.

If/When it becomes an anime I reckon some Zaregoto episodes will just consist of one conversation.

There were a few Bakemonogatari episodes that seemed like that. :P But the art direction was so beautiful and the characters were so great, I didn't mind it at all.

15 59,279 59,279 Medaka Box vol. 5=Week 1
16 42,418, 101,697 Medaka Box vol. 5=Week 2

Anything past week 2 will probably take a bit before it gets logged down anywhere since I expect it to drop off the top 30 next week. However, I expect a repeat of volume 4's performance and it will probably do 120K at least.

And actually, we are only near the 52 in english translation.
You all follow the RAW, it's that ?

It's look like i don't understand now what i read here because in 4-5 chapters, that so many things ...

Anyways, for the bottom : I'm not sure Medaka is in danger ...
I hate SWOT (because that take the place of Lock-on! i loved . <_<), Metallica Metalluca is just a mix of a lof of Shonen rules ...

Lol, i'm pretty sure alot of people agree with that about Metallica.

I do hate SWOT because it took Lock-On's spot also, and the fact that they changed it from the oneshot.

But anyway, i do follow the raws, Wonder what CXC & imangascans are doing, not that im saying they are slow or anything, but last i checked CXC blamed imangascans fore the late releases.

Medaka is not in danger... Psyren will get the axe before Medaka... since it's had way moere volumes and keeps getting outsold by Medaka, Beezlebub and Kuroko as well as Sket Dance... but the new series keeps bombing anyway so it's moot.

Yeah, I don't see Metallica lasting too long... and SWOT was horrible from the first chapter I read. Medaka should be able to hold on, continuing to claw it's way over the corpses of other series. :P

Word is, Psyren is ending soon anyway as it seems to be preparing for the final arc. I think MB will be like Tanto was in Bakuman-- one of those middle of the road series that will never be outstanding, but won't be in danger of getting canceled, either.

I was going to read Psyren til i heard the main character's been missing for quite some time, But yeah, it'd take a while for Medaka to get cancelled, I mean it's one of the few series that's actually been good. If they make some minor changes it could be better But i definitly see quite a few more series ending before Medaka does, and i can't even picture how Medaka would end...Her getting married to Zen? Hilarious.

Sadly, Zen would be the one in the dress.

Absolutely love the one with the 13 Party. While its a shame the other 6 seemingly have gotten the shaft, I'm hoping something comes up with them in later chapters to make up for it. Even so, I appreciate and enjoy what Nishio did with the 7 shown here.

That being said, I'm surprised there is already art of Kumagawa while not exactly surprised about Zenkichi's mom. New fan favorites I wonder?

Thanks for sharing.

While I agree with you on this, I'm already face palming because the last thing I feel like doing is battling the Psyren fandom if they decide to whine about Psyren dying and Medaka climbing over its corpse. Its a possible debate I don't look forward to because its going to be like explaining Ane Doki only several times more agitating because Psyren has far more fans on the net.
