I don't know but fighting the adults can be extremely interesting part...ya know.

Just as everyone said it, this chapter is damn anti-climatic.

Nisio is setting us for one huge troll, I can already see it.

Well it's setting up anticipation in my book. A filler chapter of all the opponents we've run down thus far in the series, which makes the next chapter potentially more interesting.

As everyone else has already said, it's probably Kumagawa, Anshin, or maybe Zenkichi as the last fights. Though I don't think I've seen Unzen or Nabeshima, guess they do have some importance.

I'm not a huge fan of this arc right now, but it's still early.

I can't help but notice that Medaka keeps saying

"It's a good thing that I beat Zenkichi first"

It's strange because it makes no sense.

Without a style, Zenkichi can't abuse his forte of communication and understanding - he'd be a harmless fodder to her.

Speaking of not making sense...I get the feeling that Iihiko is going to get one-shot next. That's going to cause quite the problem in internal logic if Kumagawa's or Ajimu's battles are even harder than Iihiko's.

It only makes sense if you look back at mind posessed Medaka vs zenkichi where she wasn't able to kill him. (And yes I am aware that she was still fuzzy from the injection)

In the meantime he got new abilities like Mode zenkichi which might have been a problem for an exhausted medaka.

It is btw quiete interesting that Wanizuka Nienami has the last flower...
Especially considering how she and illusion Anshin'in always appear close to another.

Well these battles ARE admittedly about getting flowers than winning fights.

And while I don't quite understand why she was concerned about beating Zenkichi first, it seems like it was meant to establish that first drive and flower. If she fought Zenkichi later, she might've been weakened, as AC phoenix stated.

Is it only me that silently screams "no!" when Medaka cuts her hair after going through End God Mode?

Yeah, how else could she have gotten Gagamaru's flower? Unless Encounter +20% overrides Encounter. But, is hypothetical.

It is well-established by this point that Nisio hates girls with long hair, so he'll cut it first chance he gets.

At this point, I don't know if he either hates it, or he just thinks it's shocking, poetic and deep when long-haired girls cut their own hair.

Either way sucks, but I'm curious.

This is true. Therefore I won't be surprised if Shiranui alters Medaka's The End through Real Eater.

Anyway, it's Tuesday already, so we should be getting spoilers tonight. Or earlier if it may be possible.

I was mainly making the point in response to people who thought her one paneling was boring.

Well it's like some forced status quo(admittedly a newer status quo but nonetheless)

Spoiler for chapter 189:

This seems awfully straightforward and pretty damn disappointing, even with the lowered expectations. Medaka really shouldn't have advanced so easily. I'm still hoping Zenkichi will surprisingly appear at the end or some other twist will occur, because, otherwise, it's simply far too simplistic and uneventful.

As expected, the finale concerns Kumagawa. Let's see how this will play out.

Hopefully, regardless of the outcome, it's not as woefully anticlimactic as the rest of the arc has been.
