Wow, we really barely know anything about Kamome(and he's become one of the major supporting characters!). Similar to Zenkichi and Shiranui, does he really have much of a connection to his father?

I'm more concerned about the song, actually. Ok, it's Sukinasaki's, but why is Medaka singing that? Anything goes for a Style? I thought it needed certain word configurations.

I spent quite a long time searching for hidden meanings, word puns or references which would have been lost in translation, but I found nothing about toyboxes, gods and demons anywhere. Unlike Joutou's, which references old Japanese lullabies, it seems that her song is original. I just hope Nisio won't tell us many chapters later that it did actually contain important elements which I overlooked, at least not important enough to warrant a re-translation

Okay I've been coming to this board for a while and never say anything, but because of you I felt the need to respond. Please stop with your annoyingly obvious terrible trolling.

I love how one of the Plus Six was brought up this chapter. Proof that Nisio hasn't completely forgotten about them, at least.

I'm actually surprised the plus six got referenced again. My take one the plus six was that they where meant to be ignored. In other shonen shows, if a character gets introduced with abilities and what not it usually means they'll get expanded on or fought against. Neither of those happened and they got forgotten because it's part of Nisio's tendency to be contrary.

Also, anyone feel like instead of a main character becoming more and more inhuman and powerful, Medaka starts off inhuman and gets more and more human as the story goes on?

Well, according to Fukurou this was all his plan to make Hansode stop being her double. All according to keikaku.

It's damn suspicious that we never saw that fight between him and Medaka. If nothing else we better get a flashback to it.

More and more human like. Though, even as early as Unzen, I think it is hinted that as much as Medaka tries to be like a human, odds are, she'd never truly be "human", just "Human-like."

Medaka is a class of being probably more closer than Ajimu in nature than any other character, besides Hanten.

Haha. I think the song thing is just build up to Medaka doing something epic. Sukinasaki Saki said that a song is to "shiver, cry, and feel with everybody", and Styles are about communication. Obviously then, if Medaka is singing that song, then she's about to make an attempt at that "communication". Basically, after being pushed back far enough to have to use War God mode to cancel out Joutou's style, Medaka's going to use her imperfect understanding of how styles operate to attempt a style of her own.

Is it possible for Medaka to communicate "passion"? Is it possible for her to understand a human heart? Why the hell not.


Anyway, I guess a literal translation of the song lyrics will be good enough, even if they do sound kinda awkward as a song in English. The use of the word "box" does seem kinda suspicious given that this manga is still called "Medaka Box", whereas that box itself has been discontinued since Medaka stopped being SC president. If the song means anything at all, I do feel that talk about "gods", "boxes", or "demons" will be appropriate to Medaka herself.

Looks like Medaka is finally starting to graduate from being a monster to become more human-like. But she still has a long way to go.

I know Medaka is OP, I know learning new tecniques is the oldest clichè on the book...



But shit that was awesome!
Now Medaka will start learning styles!
