The Not-Equals we've seen are a a Miko(Ajimu) a virtually faceless Yakuza(Hanten) and now a nurse? Nisio is going through a lot of characters for superpowered teenagers to dress the part for.

But seriously, we've actually met two new Abnormals since Ajimu showed up, and now another Not-Equal? Where are the Minuses? The idea of Negative Abnormals really helped the story. And the manga improved ever since Misogi, Mukae, Shibuki and Gagamaru were introduced.

Where the hell are the rest of Class -13. We know the rest of the Minuses have formed a class, but we haven't seen any of them. Would it kill Nisio to introduce some new Minuses?

Wait, if 1/10th of the population is already !=, then what's the point of stopping the plan? This seems like it's the natural course for humans to take...

Ajimu's plan isn't to make everybody 'Not Equals'. Remember, the Flask Plan's goal is to (via some artificial means) make everybody (as in, every human) perfect and therefore the same. So, semantically, you could probably say that what Ajimu actually wants is for everybody to be 'equal'. Strictly speaking, the fact that 1/10th of the human population is definitively 'Not Equal' might be the reason why the Flask Plan is necessary in the first place.

As for Medaka and why she's opposing them, remember that Medaka does not believe in 'genius' or 'talent' and always says that 'hard work can achieve anything'. So, the Flask Plan is not really about working hard. It's about making it so that everybody has the same level of ability as others so that there is no longer any need for struggles or competition. At least thus far, this is my understanding of Medaka's conflict with the Flask Plan now run by Ajimu.

It was 6th actually, for the 3rd time in a row.

666, Nisio the devil!

Can someone say which chapters they were based on?

93, 94 & 95, which comprises Ajimu's comeback and her intent to reboot the Flask Plan, the Student Council trying to find reliable successors to preserve the good name of the academy and the introduction of the 5 "normal" chicks.

I don't know about the rest of you, but this manga is getting lame.

Confusing and too many characters lately......behind translations aren't helping much either.

The Not-Equals we've seen are a a Miko(Ajimu) a virtually faceless Yakuza(Hanten) and now a nurse? Nisio is going through a lot of characters for superpowered teenagers to dress the part for.

I think that the Minuses are awesome and are the true bad guys or antagonists will always be them.

The minus make you think and feel. By that I mean there stories are effective and give us something to chew on. Emakue thought that she might be better of dead, scar dead is a disturbed character who once gave a lecture about how it feels to be bullied. ex. licking someones shoe.

They are obvious victims, they are losers, but you cant truly beat them because they are losers who will come at you at a whim it doesn't matter to them if they lose. They provide a special challenge to the main characters. Unlike specials, normal, abnormals and not-equals, beating them up doesn't really mean you win we saw that after scar dead fight, Kumagawa was going to retread just to mess with medaka`s dream with.

Class -13 is the authors trump card for telling an emotional story. But he had a problem, he could not effectively tell that story in the scope of the flask plan, since Kumagawa although having his own goals was still kind of working for the flask plan.

This arc gives nishi a chance to introduce what I think is the final type of person(not-equal) and end the flask plan story-line, to start something knew.
If he want to keep this manga fresh and long-running he has to change things up, expand the character roster, give us a sense of mystery, etc.

I love this manga, I wish it was more popular, and get as much debate on forums as Naruto. I honestly look forward to this more that Naruto. In this manga I dont have a character that I hate or feel like bashing, In this manga the characters I should hate are my favorite(kumagawa and the minus)

I could go on forever talking about the minus and how they will be used. But I will stop here. And I hope we somehow catch up soon. Good luck with translations dr. and good speed!

She admired him back when he was the "Destroyer", but now she resents him for going soft.

The 10th collected edition of Medaka Box came out recently in Japan. If you remove the covers, the inside flaps sometimes have normal art and sometimes have gags. The 10th volume is definitely a gag, as we see Emukae on her hands and knees making miso for Zenkichi. A *lot* of miso. While doing a huge text bubble's worth of dialogue similar to her rant about what her married life with Zenkichi would be like after she met him. Zenkichi is peering in through a window at her, vaguely terrified.

Sadly, for some reason the Japanese volume has the dialogue in Japanese, so I'm not sure what it says.

Kumagawa sure have a lot of fans ^^;

Somehow, I'd like Akane to win this contest.
As far as I've seen, he is the one who always holding back.
I really want to see him at his full strength.
