Well, when she's fighting her ninja clone there's one named [scat incident] without any explanation, they just leave it there to your imagination

What i like is that this isn't dragged off, usually shonen mangas would do at least 20 chapters about how to reach shiranui and it would make the arc really annoying, actually i didn't expect them to reach shiranui that fast .

Also, that dress is cute.

the Shiranui Clan are in the shadows and protectors of the world i guess Shiranui's next mission is to fight Medaka like snatch Zenkichi's love affection away from Medaka lol

and nice action panels, love the concept that you cannot beat yourself instead make someone beat yourself lol... i guess the saying is true that their is always someone better than you

MC powers? Considering how long have they been interacting with each other even though they weren't really friends, this resolution is quite logic.

I am disappointed that Zenkichi didn't have a bigger role in solving Shiranui's riddle...I kn ow Medaka is the MC but Zen and Shiranui were supposed to have a super strong bond and all that...I hope he doesn't fade into the background this arc and let Medaka handle everything. I like Medaka and all but Shiranui has always been seen as Zen's best friend since the start of the series (plus she still has a thing for him).

Is it me or Medaka actually more of a monster now that she is not president anymore. Now that she can understand other humans without fighting them, I am even more frightened than I am right now. She seems to be able to undestand people better than they understand themselves but I guess she is just really straightforward especially when you consider how she handled the puzzles, Kumagawa and the last 'arc' of the manga.

That is up to Nishio, it would make thematic sense to have Zenikichi face Shiranui as they were good friends but it is Nishio's manga so it is up to him.

I'll give Nishio this, it isn't dragged out like most shonen and there is almost twenty chapters worth flashbacks either.

Dragon Ball took this concept to a ridiculous level, just you have quantum powers or the ability to destory the universe doesn't mean you cannot get better. Unfortnately, it got ridiculous after awhile with all sorts of monsters appearing out of nowhere and the characters started to become to powerful. When you already faced the strongest beings in the universe, it is really tough to come with a credible threat that will challenge the characters.

Medaka and Shiranui have had a fair amount of interactions in the series, guys. I'd go as far as saying that the Medaka Shiranui relationship is more important than the Zenkichi-Shiranui relationship in the genre shift. Remember that whole "values enemies more than friends" things?

Maybe but still Zenikichi is just as much as Shiranui's friend as Medaka. Medaka deosn't really have any sort of friends but she does have some friendly rivals who more or less want to defeat her. Sadly, I would chop it up as Zenikichi's Devil Style nullifies that 'fight your friend' plotline.

What's the problem with "whining" if people believe there to be solid complaints with the turns the manga is taking(which they do - including me)?

This is a forum made for that. Internet forums are made for you to put out your reactions to the current, the present. Not to chaste yourself and be all like: "Oh, well, It might change,
so I better not say anything about it!"

I'm really, really sorry for being so blunt and crass, but the only one who should stop whining here is you.

And this is sort of the big problem with Medaka Box right now.

I, for one, enjoyed this chapter. It just continues to annoy me and a lot of other people that we always focus on the characters who, by definition, cannot be challenged, instead of the characters who can.

Also, when are the results of that popularity poll supposed to come out?

Hm, what do you mean by this?

Because, honestly, I could just apply this to current Medaka Box, just as your previous statement. Since, let's be honest here, I don't think Nishio can imagine a scene with this Medaka failing at something. Not confronting your statement or anything, but I'm kinda stealing it for now.

Though I hope he surprises me with the upcoming chapters.

That Medaka Box is better when it focuses on characters who can actually fail at things? We haven't done that in a long while now.

Ah, basically what I was thinking you said(and what I said).

Yes, that's pretty agreeable.

I stated that I was disappointed about something that happened THIS chapter...and then my hopes for the rest of the arc...

Please, elaborate where you see me whining about anything, especially about the whole arc...

*chuckles* I guess I'll add in a lil 1 cent observation on how Medaka 'knows' Shiranui so well. She doesn't 'know' Shiranui like Zenkichi does persay, but she does understand Shiranui's way of life enough to come up with how she would act in a given situation. In that situation, Zenkichi did the 'Normal' thing and focused on the time limit and the 'improbability' of the situation. Medaka, on the other hand, solved it because she operates differently than Zen does.

This wasn't so much a case of 'Who knew Shiranui the best?' but rather just a matter of focusing on the task at hand. Well, that's how I see it. I'm not trying to downplay either one - Shiranui is a tough lil cookie to crack. It's amazing that Zen of all people still remember her without any help from the other superpowers that we've seen.

And besides, even though we haven't seen it, Medaka has obviously seen the interaction between Zen and Shiranui pretty much everyday. You can see how one acts around people from watching them with others, right?

Well, the new All Fiction supposedly can't erase something if the person holds strong feelings about it, which I think was the case with Zenkichi (she's his best friend, aside from Medaka, who's his love interest anyway) and Medaka (strong rivalry). Kumagawa obviously didn't use the technique on himself, and Ajimu is Ajimu.
Therefore it's only natural that Zenkichi would remember her, as we've seen in the jet black bride arc.

...and who else here actually takes the time to read all of Ajimu's skills? Some are truly hilarious

Tempest you just hit the nail in the head of my main grievance with this chapter.

I never thought Medaka knew more about Shiranui than Zenkichi. That's absolutely preposterous, I can count on one hand the times Medaka and Shiranui exchanged dialogue.

No. The problem is Medaka now just lost her own "flaw", in the Mangaka's eyes.

You know, she was an insuferrably terrible character in her saviour persona(admittedly a little more tolerable after), but know her only weakness(not understanding people) is just gone. And she's back to being as boring as she ever was(not that it got much better), because now, she can't fail. At all.

Point-in-case, being able to deduce Shiranui's MO without know shit about her.

If the manga's focusing on Medaka now(and it is), I predict some of the most brief and boring conflicts ever.

How I miss the promising end of the True Flask Plan Arc. Too bad it was a load of crap.
