Last chapters confirmed that Zen started to fell "out of his place" in SC. IMHO only his dog-like loyalty to Medaka keeps him here, and lack of other options.

Why is it that after reading chapter 13 I cant help but feel a bit sorry for Zen since he is in love with Medaka and that its obvious that she doesnt look at him the same, and also why is it that after reading chapter 13 too me Medaka is a slut?

I have "love interest" in mind, when I was talking about "other option"

It's hard to believe that Medaka likes him at all after this chapter. It's more like she will just do it with anybody herself and is okay with Zenkichi doing the same. Is it me or Medaka is starting to become less likeable every chapter? =\ The oneshot Medaka and this Medaka are clearly different characters. Unless of course, you're willing to argue that Medaka is unshakened because she believes in Zenkichi enough to be sure that he won't do anything and is joking, or something along those lines.

ONE of the main things that drew people to Medaka Box (the oneshot) was Medaka's unique relationship with Zenkichi. Now she's no longer as interesting since all the things she does is kind of the same. The "hidden secret special skill" or whatever that Zenkichi talks about is getting old and lame imo. The other characters are far more interesting, like Shiranui and even the new treasurer. They should refocus this manga into Shiranui's random awesomeness, she's just that good.

I agree 100% especially with the part i've bolded.

Cute chapter, Mogana has a surprisingly naive and innocent side to her.

also with Shiranui reason she is so interesting is cause she is that side character type, if the focus was to be put on her she would lose that spark. I'm usually all for side character's getting more attention but too much tends to make em little less interesting.

Hope the last spot is another female!

SOS Brigade in the form of the Student Council. Complete with a Kyon, a Haruhi, an Itsuki... now where shall I put the treasurer?

... But comparing this manga with that just doesn't feel like it...

Medaka is quite different from normal people. She has absolute self-confidence and loves all of humanity, so sees nothing wrong or abnormal with stripping in front of people or kissing them or whatnot.


But she definetly has something special for Zenkichi, even if despite her superhuman intellect she has no clue what it is.

She could be one, seeing how she's clumsy (with people).

Yes, please dont compare Itsuki to Akune. Akune is such a bad character, which nobody likes and shouldn't have been in the SC in the first place. We only need one cocky/arrogant character in the SC. Two is OVERKILL.

No, its not just you, alot of people are feeling the same way about her. The argument with her believing in him wouldnt go very far, because she clearly smashed his brains out in chap 11 for joking confessing to Shinuari. Of course, probably out of fear that she is losing one of her useful tools.

Hmm, it seem the yuri kiss did not help the manga at all, who woulda guessed?*end being sarcastic* when will the author realize that we need SUBSTANCE not fanservice. Theres already a manga for that with good graphics -> to-love-ru. At this rate, Medaka will reach the bottom by the next chapter, if not, then the one after. Then it'll be too late for any major changes or development to occur in the fear of cancellation. There are three EASY steps to fix the manga and improve the rating.

1. Remove the bishi bastard... Don't even show him anymore.
2. Focus on character development, mainly on Zenkichi, and not on how Godly Medaka can be.
3. Add a true rival or a major event that will change Medaka ridiculous personality and ideals.

Feel free to debate but at this point, change is differently needed!!!

You know, I'm another that liked the oneshot, and am severely disappointed with the series. I'm going to keep reading it, but not going to expect very much from it.

The one shot was great..he became VP, but most importantly how he owned the Judo expert and told him not to make assumptions..where's that badass Zenkichi gone to?

Meh.

Bout sums up what I feel reading this. Might get better, at this point looks like probably not. I'm getting more use out of the series as a learning tool than entertainment. Having all the kanji written in hiragana is helpful!

Guys, just wait. This is NisiOisiN, he's planning something. Just wait a few more chapters and we'll see what.

Also I love Akune. He's amusing.

To tell te truth ratings are based mostly on ch 7 so yuri effect did not real kick in but I do think it won't help it much. Knowing that she already kissed her whole class probably would not add much attractiveness.

Well I guess shes the type who does not care/understand much about intimate relationships. She can use kiss or use her body as tool to get what she wants, just like she uses Zen and others. In fact if needed I think she would not hesitate having sex with someone as well - she is that purpose-justify-the-means type of character. And they do not really make good romance interests.

Medaka is still kicking but with each passing issue the chances of survival are becoming more and more slim.

Ever since ch 6-ish, this manga has been getting worse and worse. Other than looking at Medaka's wonderful figure, what else is there to expect from this manga?
