The box never went anywhere. The difference is that the requests involving the box has had more complicated factors and spawned longer arcs. The first few requests were in episodic format to help lay the foundation for the setting and the characters. As is typical for a shounen starting out. Especially Jump at that.

I've been over this before, but "stopping Class 13" was a more complex task for several reasons. One of them being that the people to confront this time weren't a bunch of scrubs like earlier in the series and stopping them meant also stopping a generally larger problem. Not on the same level as trying to find a lost puppy or be a model for an eccentric painter.

Color chapters aren't in the magazine at their rated spot (Jump likes to have an even distribution of color I guess). Beelzebub and Bleach were both likely rated higher (making Medaka at least 7). I don't know how Toriko and Sket Dance usually rate, so Medaka might be even lower than that (possibly 9th place).

This rating isn't that good considering there are several stories that are on the chopping block. SWOT and Metallica being the most likely.
That is a piss poor excuse. There are series that get color every week and there are times when there are several colors in a week. Many of those times obviously being series that rank highly so if people wanted they can nitpick rankings week in and week out. Thats why we don't do it and if this were another series and not Medaka Box no one would be trying to play that card.

Considering it is above the likes of Hokenshitsu, Psyren, Kuroko, Gintama and Reborn it is a valid ranking. Especially since the latter 3 have been in the top 5 several times and the latter two in the top 3.

There are always series on the chopping block. The point in Jump is to climb over the corpses of other series. Which Medaka Box has been doing and making it a joy to watch it kick the teeth in of all the naysayers.

Either way, it's a great ranking



But it's not perfect yet, he broke the wall with each step.
Whether series that get covers are ranked or not is still being debated everywhere I look. Any series that got the cover but no color pages from what I can see looking back through the archives was placed at the top. Although a lot of times that ends up being One Piece or Naruto, and they are high anyway, I've seen Bakuman and Toriko(An earlier cover) placed near the top too.

Either way, its 5th or 6th. Still higher than all the set up chapters.

Going to have to wait for an anime. I estimate the series being capable of reaching a Reborn/Gintama level after an anime but I won't declare with certainty that it kicks Bleach out of its third wheel spot.

This thread is a whole let less interesting without the naysayers, which oddly enough was my entire reason to read medaka box. now that it's degenerated to self-congratulatory back patting, I think i'll drop both the manga and the thread. What's weird is I had no particular feelings either way on it but the thread made it more interesting.

This is just like saying I never cared for the manga to begin with, but I read it just for forum drama. Well I, for one, congratulate you for finally stop wasting your time.

Once again, it gives me the hope that Class Negative 13 will try and take Zenkichi for themselves. It's hard for Abnormals to get close to people. And for Negative
Abnormals like Kumagawa, who absorbs the negativity from everyone he meets, and Emukae who is desperate to have close contact with someone, it must be impossible for them to get close to others.

Zenkichi is someone they feel they can get close to, if nothing else he's someone that the Negative 13 would probably want around.Unless he chooses to join them, or they turn him evil, I just hope he makes his own connections with them.

If not for him, just because losing him would make Medaka fall apart.
(I wonder if Kumagawa knows that?)

Hello, fellow Medaka fans. I really hate doing this but all of my usual sources seem to not be posting or don't have the raws for chapters 60 (and now 61, I suppose). It's strange because I can easily find every other popular/semi-popular manga from jump pretty easily. If anyone can direct me to them it would be greatly appreciated. I would prefer not to use IRC channels if at all possible. Thanks a bunch!

Score another for the home team. Chapter 55, where Medaka vs. Miyakonojou concludes and Kumagawa shows up makes this 3 weeks in a row. If this is where we finally build up the momentum I'll be elated.

No one surprised that after getting stabbed in the foot, Zen easily walks around as if nothing happened?

Not after he got up and ceiling-stomped Munekata following a dozen swords in the back. He either got a very high pain tolerance plus other things to resist shock following Medaka around doppfor years... or it's burning willpower, Domon Kasshu style.
