I find it fun to pretend that these two chapters are all an elaborate April Fools' prank.

It's too easy.

So easy, that I am beginning to suspect there's something gigantically troll-tastic that's going to be dropped on us all in the next few chapters.

That, or the manga is ending.

It's a rumor, but it would make sense, seeing as it would virtually be at its 4th year anniversary as Medaka Box debuted on issue 24.

I'm trusting the source this time. Though the possibility was still there, after Iihiko the powerscale was at its peak.

There isn't such thing, every volume since vol.15 was around 130k.
Holding steady with two anime seasons and a lot of promotion in JUMP is pretty pathetic, I honestly can't think of another JUMP series that didn't get a bump due to an anime.

Heck most series get a pre-anime bump due to the magazine hyping things up and than they get another bump after the anime, Medaka Box had neither.

To be fair, the first anime season wasn't all that great, and season 2 didn't help as much either.
I don't think as many people cared about the series pre-kumagawa, and the first anime season must've been enough to drive people away.

If anything, this is a testament to how poorly conceived the first season was, which we already knew.

Both seasons have only one thing that isn't pathetic: their last episodes.

But I wish it does happen so I hope it at least turns out like what I'm about to put if the rumor is true about the manga.

It's like the first few books of Negima. The answer is yes.

It's not that I hate this season. I hate the fact that they really stretched the material for the first season. Look at Btoom! - they managed to adapt 31 weekly and 19 monthly chapters in 12 episodes! (though they cut some stuff but not a lot). Some stuff was also cut in the second season of anime version but the 1st one was... too slow IMO.

Then I guess I'm in the minority on that. Certainly the definitive trope exploring didn't come about in full force until Kumagawa, but I think the themes were put in place well enough to offer a contrast. Medaka's always been a nearly unstoppable force whether defined as an abnormal or not, but I think important themes of success being predetermined were established.

Without that contrast, I don't the transition would be as eye-opening.
