To be fair, if it hadn't received such miserable rankings in the middle, we may have not witnessed such a hap-hazard, ridiculous, utterly-failed transformation of this manga.

To be fair if it hadn't taken that ridiculous turn for the worst it wouldn't have gotten miserable rankings XP

I thought because of the low ranking, it turned that way, no?

lolwut, it's actually ending? What was the point of bringing up the whole '13' thing like it'd be the setup for some plot development, then?

The manga's gotten to the point where I was actually rooting for the kid to take out a few council members just to drop Medaka's god-modiness a few notches. Break her down, and have Zenikichi get her back up. Oh well,

Spoiler for Chapter 19:

No where, people are just assuming for some reason or another. I just read the translation, and it's really interesting. It's not a battle manga yet, but it'st still really interesting. It seems the arc itself is ending next week, but that little flashback of everything in the series so far in that one page looks like it is setting itself up to end, I'm still not focusing on that though, because nothing seems to indicate that yet.

Medaka has to protect these useless things, since they obviously are incapable of taking care of themselves.

You know like some people like to collect stickers , so Medaka collects her council members instead. But its like stickers - after collecting them they are pretty useless and the only thing they are good for - to show them to others:

"Look, I have a self-absorbed Bishie, Lesbo Swimgirl and a human lap-dog! Wanna trade? I'm getting tired of the lap-dog."

I refuse to believe this manga and Bakemonogatari are from the same person.

Sometimes people just aren't meant for certain things. He has a weekly schedule to keep up doing the manga whereas he probably had all the time in the world to recollect his thoughts when writing his novel. And he's probably new to this "shounen" demographics so he doesn't know what exactly would appeal to people who reads Bleach, Naruto and Fairy Tail etc.

Yeah, the biggest problems with the manga are 1) the lack of focus to the story... There's no cohesion and no one knows where it's going or what it's supposed to be (not sure Nishio himself does); 2) the complete focus on Medaka doing everything herself and on her insane strength makes it boring and 3) the lack of any character development (or any need at all for that matter) for any other characters, especially the council, in the manga also hurts. So far, even Zen appears useless.

As Jourdai said, the manga has become something completely different from what it was in the first chapters. While it's true that this haphazard change has come about due to low rankings, the low rankings came about in the first place because of a lack of story or development. Throughout all 19 chapters and it's changes, the only thing that has remained constant is Medaka's superiority to everyone else and the lack of any need for the rest of the cast.

Just read the translation:

Don't try to take explanations... I disconnect my brain and just look.
It's good in a way...

Even if you just read it thats not enough because the battle scenes are mediocre and the arte isn't all that good..
