It's already confirmed. Twitter is where all official announcements take place first these days.
Unless Jump posts it in BIG BOLD LETTERS I'm not going to believe it. I mean come on GAINAX!?

They fit Medaka pretty well. Or at least Imaishi and his team does.

I dunno. Medaka Box is fairly tame compared to a lot of Gainax's work.

Also a lot less srs, IMO.

They're not gonna post it until the next magazine, such an announcement for chapter 100 seems like it fits and if anything we'll know for sure in a couple of days.

Can anyone PLEASE give a short synopsis of the latest un-translated chapters? This is like the fourth time I've asked...

Itīs not like I started to translate them (well beside Yabumiīs introduction... for obvious reasons), but well, you already got the gist:

Very excited for this show...though it does take a while to get started past the tame school-life antics, but with GAINAX anything can happen.

It would be hilarious if Gainax said "fuck it" and just pretty much skipped to Misogi ASAP.

Medaka Box ranked 5th, 7th, 6th & 8th for Issues 49-52 of 2010... just saying... Medaka's pic is always shown on the cover of those JUMP specials, it probably holds the record for fastest jump manga to get a VOMIC, it actually got its second anniversay color on time (which for a minor series is extremely rare), it's already having its second character poll, took a lot of other series a long time to do that... and its sales were on par with Beezlebub, Sket Dance and Kuroko (which should be next).

10, *69,734 *,*69,734 Beelzebub vol.5
11, *69,211 *,*69,211 Kuroko no Basket vol.6
12, *68,014 *,*68,014 Sket Dance vol.13
13, *63,570 *,*63,570 Medaka Box vol.4

Medaka Box was even outselling Beezlebub in the first week before that got an anime..... and we all know how much Jump pushed Beezlebub in comparison to Medaka Box...

Also if Shingami can survive for 8 volumes and is only capable of doing 31,000 for an opening week for the 8th volume... well it's very lackluster sales compared to Medaka Vol 2's opening week of 54,194 which not counting the low balled Vol 1 is the weakest sales in the series by far... PSYREN lasted 16 or so volumes doing 50,000 a week... just putting that out....

I don't know why people are so fixated on the TOC, if a manga is selling good it means jack shit. Did D.Gray Man do good on the TOC? Nope, but it has outsold every jump manga from the last decade aside from the big 3. 5th best if you want to count Hunter X Hunter. I don't think you people realize that Shuiesha makes its money from selling manga volumes. If they had to cut one manga between Shingami and Medaka Box who have been ranking similarly than the manga doing 30k 1st weeks will get cut while the one doing 100k first weeks will survive.

People talk up how great Enigma was doing on the TOC.. I think 3 volumes have been out and it hasn't even ranked once. Can't even sell 30k for the first week.. and already there is rumors of it being cut.. you want a name of another manga that ranked well on the TOC at first? Try Double Arts, what happened to that? Oh yeah *snip* And while I hope it doesn't happen the same fate could befall Magico as well...

While this isn't entirely true think of WSJ as the free to air airing, the TOC for anything outside of the big guns as tv ratings for late night anime shows... and the dvd/bd sales = manga volume sales. The most props I've ever got on Mangahelpers was when I ridiculed why people thought Mago was in danger of being canceled after being in the bottom 5 for 3 weeks (oh no!) Like Shuiesha are going to cancel a top 10 selling manga property from 2010 so they can insert another dud that can't break 30k. Mago like Medaka appeals to people outside the typical Jump audience anyway so they won't dominate rankings, Mago just had the really purple patch for a while...

Thanks for that. Medaka will survive until the end. I hope Enigma does succeed though, it looks like it will be getting into a battle manga phase soon, or something like a battle-mystery hybrid. It will make a good anime.

Well I guess I never shook the stuck in a rut association off because I always saw it as being a pretty mediocre series to begin with.

All the better for its continued success then.

:F

New Chapter is out. and I have to say. Kumagawa is a fucking boss.
This gives credence to zens statement about how,he was weaker than everyone else making him stronger than everyone else.

I said doomed to cancellation, it's always been hovering the bottom five slots hasn't it? That's been proven more then enough times as this point.
That will be doomed to cancellation until the manga finish !
Mark my words !
And i remember the post who said that like 80 chapters ago ...
That take a awful lot of time to cancel Medaka Box ?

Anyways, good chapter 96 : badass Aizen pervert.

Are all those 5 successors Not-Equals?

This is confusing....unless Ajimu lied about only 1 of them being Not-Equal.
Yet Kumagawa wiped the floor with them.

Well... yeah she lied. Or maybe she didn't, they all see themselves as one after all, so technically it's not incorrect.

Good news about the anime.
Now I just want to see what will think of this news the Heater of Medaka box that said that it would be cancel.
I have to admit I loved this ch and Kumagawa has proven to be the same but to the right side. I must say that I prefer this one to the old Kumagawa.
In any case, even if it dont appeared during this ch,now I'm even more curious why Najimi is also interested in Zen or better yet what has Zen that attracted Najimi interest in the first place.
I meant that thanks to this ch we found that it is something quite exceptional to attract her interest.
Just look at the comments of these five girl, and I must say I can understand about Kumagawa and Medaka but why also Zen? Seriously I hope that the author give us the answer about this during this arc.
Also I wonder why Hitomi sensei dont want that think Zen about Najimi when Kumagawa talk abouth her during the struggle with Mukea.
