Nice Chapter(thought it was a clever, but normal way to defeat Ihiko). It reminded me of this Frodo-esque "You do not matter and you have no power; all that matters is that you are her friend". I also found that quote of not blaming extraordinary people for mediocrity interesting and relatable. There are people who can do amazing things, but different things.

He's not Medaka's support, he's can be everyone's(yeah gushing a bit here).

Yeah that was confirmed pretty much the chapter it occurred but probably the dude had already lost alll resemblance of concious after long term inhabitance of Iihiko.

Anyway Zenkichi adds to his list of the manga's best fights.

The weakness was kind of obvious but execution was impressive. I really hate Medaka Box even if it is supposed to be a parody manga, it still pisses me off..

Then why do you read it, do you enjoy being pissed off?

Don't really have to read it on a weekly basis for that it'd probably be faster if you ignored it for a period of time then read it when it actually ends.

The father-son parallel was also nicely done.

Apparently, his father, who is a normal just like him, fell in love with and ran away from his mother because she is an extraordinary Abnormal.
That obviously affected Zenkichi while growing-up, as everytime he thought of his father, and saw himself reflected in him, he vowed that he wouldn't make the same mistake as him.

He wouldn't blame his mediocrity on someone who is extraordinary, his father's mistake.

So, in a way, we can see the effects that his father had on raising him, even while being totally absent!

Agree and I think this show ,again what kind of character Zen is.
No wonder he was able to become friend with so many people.

Tall Poppy Syndrome? His father left him? That explains a lot actually.

Man, this chapter, how can I say it... manly tears.

Everything in this epic fight was wonderfully played, culminating with one of the most if not the most awesome conclusion in the series. Iihiko just had a taste of his own irreversible damage. His spirit that had kept him alive for five thousand years, destroyed forever. Zenkichi hasn't come victorious of just one more fight. This is his most important victory, he didn't save Shiranui only, he saved all the humanity.

Nisio, once more, I take off my hat and salute you

Could anyone explain how Zen beats lihiko? Also what would have happen if Zen's kick would have landed on Iihiko?

^Pretty much.
This was Zen plan from the beginning and that's why he sacrifice his own arm.

I kind of saw that one coming, Iihiko getting with his own attack and all.

I pretty much figured Iihiko would be taken out by his own power the second I learned damage he made could not be repaired...I did not expect it to be this way though xD

It remains to be seen how absolute his ability is though.

Its probably just because that is the usual way things run in stories but I have a hunch that all damage he previously dealt to the world is, now that he is gone for good, reversible.
