Maybe he didn't want to end up looking like his father.

So chapter's out.

I have to admit, I actually enjoyed seeing what the rest of the cast sort of did with their life, and I do feel kinda sad that it'll be ending in a week.

Also, I didn't even recognize Wanizu at first, until somebody called her by name. Geez, her appearance prob changed the most out of all of them.

Unzen looks pretty badass. Lol at Kiruko inventing cryogenic sleep and then going to sleep. And Shirnaui is now a public ninja village.

Personality wise, Bami's changed a lot too. Seems to have formed an awesome bro-buddy relationship with Zenkichi.

Wonder if we'll get appearances from kumagawa and Ajimu next chapter. Actually, maybe that's where Kumagawa disappeared to, to bring back Ajimu

Another week of dancing around the actually important issues and characters...welp. One more chapter to go.

The 'character growth' we're being treated to here is pretty cheap. "Symbolism" cannot take the actual place of substance, it's only supposed to supplement it. Overall, seeing what a cheap finale this chapter and the last arc have been, I wonder if it's just a generic template ending Nishio has been saving around for the case that he got cancelled. The last couple chapters have said practically nothing important about the characters.

Whatever the point of Medaka Box was, as a narrative, as a story, Nishio sure hasn't had the chance to fulfill it. Anyway, I'm prepared next week to be disappointed, there isn't much you can do in 1 chapter. I just hope Nishio won't go as far as to think that one of these shallow, feel good, 'symbolic character development' endings will be good enough for his actual main characters.

I thought there might be a time skip but...special skill animal empathy? What happened to Medaka's collection of crazy powers? I hope this isn't a sign that she gave up all her crazy abilities. Ridiculously over-powered Medaka is the only Medaka. I accept no substitutes.

Unless Medaka gave her powers to Nienami and Nienami has gone full Anshin'in mode. I'd accept that.

Good chapter. Pretty sad it's ending, it was actually one of my favourite series.

Why didn't they actually show some of the fights, if the last arc was meant to be the climax action-wise?

Though somewhat interesting, this was definitely a dull chapter, due to the fairly standard and only occasionally informative ramblings of each post-graduation path for nearly every character but the consequential ones, namely Kumagawa, Zenkichi for the most part, and Medaka. Not to mention, Nienami and Ajimu.

I'm looking forward to the final chapter, in part because of Medaka and Zenkichi's reunion, but I'm not exactly expecting some deep satisfaction to be felt after the conclusion, given the likelihood that the next chapter will solely be able to quickly resolve a few remaining mysteries, while vaguely foreshadowing further developments. I'm somewhat expecting that Kumagawa will be revealed as the father of Mogana's child, and I'm hoping that Medaka and Zenkichi will finally have the happy ending that Zenkichi deserves. Of course, I also hope Ajimu makes an appearance, but that seems rather foolish at this point, unfortunately.

Also, in retrospect, with the knowledge that these actually are the final chapters, the previous arc really couldn't have been much worse.

Mogana's child had white hair!! Kumagawa had white hair as a child too.. hmm..

Also the thought of Iihiko (echo) as an attraction is hilarious....
Ok chapter I guess.

Is that even possible though since they mentioned that they haven't even heard from him since he graduated?

Mogana had a peculiar reaction after his absence was mentioned, so perhaps she alone is aware of what has happened to him.

He was actually my first guess as well since the child's name Mogami sounds like a combination of both their first names, Mogana and Misogi.
That was the only thing that was making me think otherwise but I guess you could be right? Not sure what they would be keeping secret to everyone though if that is the case.

"Okay" chapter I guess.

The Heat + Bami duo seemed to come out of nowhere, you'd have expected the much more likely Kei + Zen. They're a bit too friendly now, but I guess alot happened between them in 10 years.

I'd bet all I own that Kumagawa is the father of Kikaijima's child, too.

I can't believe there are people who actually take the Kumagawa == Kikaijima's kid's father idea seriously...like honestly, is it even possible to so fundamentally misunderstand this manga. It's pure delusion. Kikaijima's relationship with Kumagawa was never remotely portrayed to be something important to the story, she's portrayed as having given birth to a child while Kumagawa has been unseen for 10 years...

I could make a fortune with all of these guys who say they'd bet money. Unfortunately I'm gonna be pretty busy this week with finals, but just know that I will be totally laughing next week at all of the chumps who actually believed in it.

Well a Zenkichi and Medaka happy ending will be ok but it definitely won't be that satisfying. Actually any relationship involving Kumagawa, Zenkichi, Medaka or Ajimu for that matter will be unsatisfying. There just isn't enough time to make those relationships seem any good. The only one that seems ok at this moment is Zenkichi and Medaka. Of course a Mogana and Kumagawa relationship might be ok since it does look like it can be his. Notice how she didn't tell them her surname? Something is fishy about that and her reaction about Kumagawa but i doubt its his. EDIT. Actually I'm pretty sure its not his since Torai and co. have been looking for him and the surname will definitely give him away.

But yea this what i think:

ZenxMedaka = hmmm. ok
MoganaxKumagawa = hmmm ok
KumagawaxMedaka = ah wtf? she was hiding him in the closet!
KumagawaxAjimu = really? WTF? Need a spinoff here please.

ZenxNienami= hell yea!

This chapter's worst sin is how it crushed my dreams for a NienamixZenkichiEmukaexZenkichi ending.

Fucking Medaka. He could've moved on.

I liked the foreshadowed KikaijimaxMisogi, though. I always liked them toguether.

Well I don't think EmukaexZenkichi will happen so I'll have to move on from that. BUT there was no mention of Nienami. So I can dream that they are married and that she doesn't care that he will work with Medaka because he really is just saying good bye as a romantic interest and greeting himself again as her bestfriend. Who am I kidding? That for sure won't happen.
