It would be nice to see a Hipster-kun-centered arc.

I'm not quite sure you have any idea what you're talking about.

Depends on what Aijimu was doing with him during their training, we know Aiimu completed her perfecting oof humanity with him though we don't know whether he became what she considered to be a perfect human and what that involves.

to be fair, this trait isn't limited to Zen some other shonen heroes like Touma, Shirou, Negi and whathisname from The World Only God Knows also share this trait. Why does Zenikichi always attract the weird ones?

We may probably never consider how that arc was resolved. It is almost a repeat of Oudo's defeat and how it left some things open and in the air.

Is there a chance that Zenkichi killed the last winner of the wedding feast somehow? The whole not wanting him to find out about the murder in the last arc was never explained properly, and I'm getting a bad feeling about their relationship going forward since the manga obviously isn't ending.

I feel like a couple of minuses have invaded the thread...

And the reason for Zen getting the ladies is because his 'Normal'ness is attractive to Abnormals, Specials, and Minuses and of course to Medaka. But also, he's Medaka-sexual so the other girls really have no chance of getting with him. Which I do feel bad for Eukae(sp?) since she genuinely is a sweet girl and cute to boot.

After 4 days I finally finished reading 141 chapters of the manga. To be honest, I can't find the right words to describe how I feel. I can't say I hated it since I read all current chapters but I can't say I completely love it either. But I definitely enjoyed reading it though. Maybe it's Nishio Ishin's unorthodox style of writing that attracted me to it. I can agree that majority to of the manga's success (or salvation from cancellation) was due to Kumagawa. But I think what makes this manga interesting compared to others of it genre is how the supporting characters grow and not how the main character gets her new power up. After a very bumpy start and 140 chapters later Medaka Box has finally molded with its own identity and not turn itself into just another shounen battle manga.

It's most probably not that, if it was simply that there's dozen's of other people that could fill that role. It's most likely because he's more accepting than practically anyone without caring about changing people if they don't want it unless he's the reason their like that in first place.

Which is why he's Shiranui's only friend for a loong time since she screwed over everyone else (him too but he didn't care)

Medaka loves Zenichi, I think the end of chapter 140 proved that? I wonder if we will see anything come from that.

I dunno....

Before Zen was special to Medaka because he was Normal, but she suddenly had a standard to hold him to when the interns came along. Now he's special for defeating her.

Now that she's living for herself, how well will that new reason hold up with her new mindset?

Another thing, Zen gave up his chance to have Medaka be his because he wants it to be her choice. It's like that trope "I Want my Beloved to be Happy" . If he's content with Medaka being happy with someone else, who's to say he won't try to find happiness with someone else?

All in all, the plot will bend to whatever way suits Medaka, but when you have a character who can defy the plot, namely Zen, there's really no telling how it will go until you see it for yourself.
