I see. The girlfriend thing caught me off-guard... since THERE WAS NO BLOODY WAY THAT COULD HAD HAPPENED to Zenkichi, who's been idolizing, worshiping and loving Medaka since forever.

I'm still holding my ground on that Kumagawa is one of the best villains in shounen right now.

Yeah it's sad to see such a good manga being so unpopular when you have manga such as Naruto which are really popular

I really like Medaka Box and yeah Kumagawa is a great vilain.

Ajimi is a big mystery. Who is she ? What's her power ? What's her relationship with Kumagawa ? One thing is sure : she's cute :3

I don´t know, but she looks somewhat mischievous for me. Maybe, because we do know so little about her and don´t know which side she is on.

An interesting idea about her ability to restore Zenkichi´s eyes, I heard of, could be the ability to create something from nothing, the complete opposite of Kumagawa´s All Fiction.

Well, but now I really would like to know how Medaka would react, if she meets Ajimi.

PS: Who the hell told the Minus of the Trainings Camp? Shiranui? A traitor between Medaka´s friends? Or one of the abilities of the Minus?

Then this picture here would be funny XD: http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.p...st_id=14015155
If you think about it, is not so impossible that she was Zenkichi girlfriend or that Kumagawa misunderstood the situation.
There are three different possibilities that can explain such a thing.
And these are:
-The girl was really Zen's girlfriend and a good friend of Medaka.
Probably Kumagawa love her and the relationship she had with Zen making kumagawa jealous and probably Yandere(I mean it seems ,that these minus are drawn to such actions).
And that incident traumatized Zen with the results we have seen.
-second options .. Ajimi is just a good friend with Zen and Medaka.
But Kumagawa misunderstands the relationship between Zen and Girl same result above.
-third possibility that Ajimi was a onechan like figure for both Zen and Medaka.
Needless to repeat Kumagawa misunderstands the relationship between Zen and Ajimi here too,same result here as well.
Obviously these are the options that I think are possible.
For confirmation we have to wait that Zen remember or Kumagawa say something more about Ajimi.

Whether Kanojo is "she" or "girlfriend" is based on the context. Considering how she was acting towards Zenkichi, and how Kumagawa worded it "seeing ____ after so long" it makes more sense towards the context that he said "girlfriend" instead of just "her".

My guess is that it's deep in Zen's memory or something. She did get her face ripped off after all.

Anyway, it's not really important at this point, many things about her are a mystery. We don't even know her proper name yet, so only time will tell.

It seems clear that Zenkichi lost all memory to this girl somehow, and we're not entirely sure how Medaka and Zenkichi were in middle school, so I wouldn't put it out of the realm of possibility.

OK....

I've already drawn the conclusion that Aijimi is the Middle School girl that Misogi killed. She healed Zenkichi's eyes, which Misogi couldn't do. I wonder what Aijimi has to do with Zenkichi, she seems to know him.

Maybe "All-Fiction" was originally her power and Misogi took it when he killed her. Maybe there's more to Misogi's Minus than just warping reality.(If it's even his Minus)

Also....

Zenkichi stopped Misogi's Minus when he tried to use it, but it kicked in after he died. Zenkichi thought he needed to use his hands to activate his Minus, but Misogi said he just uses his hands to make it look cool(Probably another lie) Whether or not his hands are necessary to use "All-Fiction" doesn't matter, fact is Zenkichi stopped it from working right then.

Another piece of evidence that Zenkichi isn't normal. And, considering that Medaka can't fight against a Minus, I can only hope that we see what else Zenkichi can do when confronted by a Minus. Appealing to Mukae who, by nature as a Minus, doesn't want friends. Momentarily stopping "All-Fiction, even Misogi wanted him to be his friend.

I hope that this is building up to a big confrontation where Zenkichi's status is formally declared.

At any rate, has anyone gotten ahold of chapter 73 yet?
Does anyone know what happened?

73 hasn't come out yet in the usual places.

As for Zenkichi, Maguro already said that he is the type that is "liked" by the minuses in general. Shiranui was the first hint and Emukae was the confirmation. Kumagawa despite being...Kumagawa still offered him friendship of sorts(Just for Zenkichi) but I'd put an asterisk next to that one. Since Kumagawa tends to be a liar and it was noted that he wanted to break Zenkichi's mind.

Zenkichi's power is to be loved by all the minus. Amiji is a minus so she loved him that's why Kumagawa said "girlfriend" .

lol man, can you imagine being "friends" with Kumoawa. Like Zen said, your mind would rot for sure. The persuasive force of his selfishness would probably turn you into utter filth as a human being. To be compelled to melt away in blissful self-destruction, what an absolutely terrifying thing.

Mystery girl is super hot, this manga just keeps getting better. How she is connected to Zen/Medaka/Kumogawa's past is a fascinating question.

Come on, there's got to be more to it than that. There's always more to it with Abnormalities.

Miyakanojou's "Weighted Words" are through his ability to transmit electromagnetic signals to peoples bodies.

Takachiho's "Auto-Pilot" reflexes let him avoid danger and even attack through the power of his body's nervous system. No thought required in the process.

Medaka's "The End" lets her learn how to do anything, even other peoples Abnormalities, perfect them, and use them to their fullest extent.

Now let's see

Zenkichi seems to be Normal, but has pushed his body to its fullest extent. Add that to the fact he could become friends with anyone, including Minuses who, by definition, don't want friends are drawn to him.(Which I suppose is a bad thing)Finally, Zenkichi appears to disrupt Misogi's All-Fiction.

There's more to him than just "an average guy who everyone finds likeable"

Looking at the Baka-Update page for Medaka Box pisses me off, it's like they don't even try to understand the damn story and just gives it a bad ranking.

I know all of that doesn't matter, but damn. Reading the reviews just to be curious about why some feel that way, has me facepalming myself.

^the story is kinda off the charts, nonsensical, irational, too many pop-culture references whatsoever. Anybody who can understand everything that Kumagawa says may raise his hand, cuz i sometimes dont really get if he's serious or not, what's true or not, is it ALL FICTION?
