I remember absolutely loathing the ending more than anything else in the manga (which is saying something). There were many things I wanted answered. There were many things I didn't understand and points I harshly disagreed with. The open-endedness left me feeling empty - they proposed many times before but were always sidetracked, so why should I assume this will turn out better?

But, I'm ranting. Besides, every time I talk about my feelings on this ending, I get into arguments about the author's intentions.

Cross your fingers for Good Loser Kumagawa ending. We could see some OTP Kumagawa x Ajimu there. Or just another fantastic troll. If anything I hope we see future Kumagawa.

Raws for 20th volume are out and here's other places from 3rd popularity poll:

What's interesting is that the participants from the top14 in 2nd and 3rd polls are pretty much the same (aside from replacements and less votes):
1. Misogi Kumagawa = 3854
2. Medaka Kurokami = 992
3. Youka Naze = 905
4. Mukae Emukae = 835
5. Kei Munakata = 807
6. Kouki Akune = 802
7. Hansode Shiranui = 727
8. Zenkichi Hitoyoshi = 672
9. Mogana Kikaijima = 462
10. Najimi Ajimu = 375
11. Myouga Unzen = 359
12. Tsugiha Yojirou = 319
13. Ima Takarabe = 290
14. Gagamaru Chougasaki = 218


1. Misogi Kumagawa = 2824
2. Kouki Akune = 1084
3. Zenkichi Hitoyoshi = 885
4. Mukae Emukae = 735
5. Youka Naze = 725
6. Medaka Kurokami = 522
7. Najimi Ajimu = 514
8. Hansode Shiranui = 487
9. Kei Munakata = 483
10. Tsugiha Yojirou = 331
11. Myouga Unzen = 291
12. Mogana Kikaijima = 286
13. Ima Takarabe = 171
14. Gagamaru Chougasaki = 169

Also lol @ Akatsuki winning over Nishio for the 1st time (26:9).

Kumagawa still remains popular even after the manga ending, how did Ajimu get lower than the other characters?

And yeah, she's actually got even more votes in the 3rd polles while Mukae/Youka/Medaka got less but still not enough to beat them (though she won over Kei and Shiranui).

That makes sense sort of.

I was one of the people who could barely understand how Medaka got first place in the first popularity poll. I'm past that, since I realize that people have different opinions than mine and their reasons for these opinions may not make sense to me, such as how mine may not make sense to them.

Usually the title characters are popular in Jump manga but different strokes for different folks I suppose.

Those would be the few lines I translated long ago. Didn't translate anything else, but someone else could have, dunno

I've thought so
Though I actually managed to find this but I'm not sure if it's alive or will be updating.

Looks like something called Medaka Box Complete Guidebook will be released on the same date of the released of a last volume.

Good.

Maybe, after a translation, we'll finally get some light shed on the questions that were never completely answered

Sounds very disappointing, but I'll have to know more before I can tell if it makes an already terrible ending even worse.

I think the problem was that I read the story as completely literal throughout the entire run, so I was confused and enraged when it turned out to be an analogy or symbol or something that make no sense on a literal level. Maybe.

The manipulative girl who wears a hospital mask to hide her shark teeth, who went to Suisou Academy with Kumagawa and made him SC President, only to have their battle shut down their school, and went on to become a pop idol who takes her clothes off when she gets excited.
