Same old since Westlo brought it up, but it was kinda enlightening, considering I realised just how little the shit rankings mean in regards to Medaka Box considering it sales means unless it somehow dramatically drops down, which is highly unlikely at this point there's pretty much zero risk of cancellation.

The volume sales are something like 170k per volume as reported by Oricon, or 3 million over 12 volumes as of late 2011 as reported by press releases. Decent sales for sure, if a little stagnant considering that Medaka Box was already up to selling 100k per volume as of Vol. 2.

Regarding Medaka Box's performance throughout the Minus Arc, I don't mean to imply that none of the chapters fared well. It still had the occasional chapters jumping up to 6th or 7th place, and quite a few stretches of higher averages than most of the other arcs. It's just that it also wasn't uncommon for the series to dip back into the bottom 5 or even stay there for quite some time (8 chapters in a row in the bottom 5 at worst, versus 6 chapters in a row outside of it at best), so at best you could call it inconsistent.

Rankings are meaningless, over 100k per volume makes a hypothetical cancellation non-viable and impossible. Even if the series stayed in bottom 5 forever (not gonna happen) sales is what matters in the end.

I really want to know the reason for Zenkichi's hair-color change.
And it's good to see a straightforward battle between fists and weapons (yet, the oddest feeling of deja vu keeps invading me while seeing the battle).

iirc the chapters that started the Zen arc (118 I think? The 2 or 3 chapters where he had the shit beaten out of him by Medaka and was given the speech by Ajimu) were among the highest rated in the series' history. Its just the next few weeks didn't deliver as well as it should (well, more like every series at the time was revealing huge plots. So its more like it couldn't keep up with the other shit that was rolling with it).

When talking about rankings you have to remember that the actual chapters each ranking corresponds to is 7 chapters back due to the delay. Also, you can't count colour pages. The chapters that started the Zen arc were "decent" (13th, 8th, etc.) but Medaka Box's actual best chapter was ch. 114 at 4th.

Umm we don't actually know the delay, so you can't really state that either. We just know there's a delay. Hell we don't even really know the time period of voting, if several weeks worth our allowed, then obviously the rankings wouldn't be influenced by single chapter but more a period of time. Even if it was just in regards to that chapter. The overall lack of information about ToC makes pining pointing chapters of popularity worthless, you can only really use it to judge arcs and mini arcs.

hmm...is it just me or is devil style now ineffective? Zenkichi was able to dodge the blade by the 'width of a hair', and also miss Ruki ended up being the 'weakest' of the suitors... so either zenkichi can turn off its effect, or he somehow got rid of it~

I prefer zenkichi's hair black♥

New chapter out...in the process of reading it, first I've been poring over the information page ("Media Box" lol).

Not that much new stuff, first just some novel summary information...Medaka's speech bubble confirms that Kuguhara-sensei (the male on the right) is/was? her homeroom teacher for first year. Incidentally regarding that: a little while back when I was browsing through the Minus arc recently I came across the section where Kumagawa/Class -13 took over the second year Class 13 classroom. The reason it was available (as Shiranui informed them) was because none of the second year Class 13 students come to school...however, as for first year Class 13 and third year Class 13, the sole students who did come in each of those years were Medaka and Hinokage respectively. Point being: Medaka has always been in Class 13, but she (used to be?) the only one who came to class. If Kuguhara Messhi was her homeroom teacher, then, they must have had some really interesting conversations.

Anyway, the big thing which caught my attention: Kumagawa's gonna be on the cover of the next issue of Jump Next! Is there gonna be another oneshot or something? Somebody with better Japanese than me should confirm.
