Actually, I'm pretty sure he does this on all of his works? I wouldn't know from experience though. He's done it twice in Medaka Box so far.

It's just the fact that it's mother-teresa-fucking Ajimu that surprises me.

My theory is that he got hatemail when he did it to Togame and cutting the hair of half the characters in the -monogatari series was an ironic response to it.
Now he's doing it as self-parody.

The spoilers look increasingly grim every time I read them.

If Medaka actually does even fight competively against this guy, I'll have to at least consider dropping the manga.

Unlikely, but Nishio's Medaka's #1 fan, so you never know.

She will. She's the protagonist, so she can't lose.
If I wanted to be ironic, I'd say that Medaka Box has become a parody of bad manga that refuse to end, but in reality, it actually is a bad manga that has refused to end.

She was talking about Medaka, who is the protagonist and thus "the strongest".

She didn't say Medaka was stronger. She said she couldn't beat Medaka because "she's the protagonist". Medaka herself admitted to being weaker tha Ajimu.

And growing the hair back dosen't change the fact of what happened.

What's the "hair getting cut" trope now? Seems like it's just a Nishio thing now..

Seems a lot of the actual content is different from the minor details that trickled out.

I'm actually very relieved and thankful to eat my words.

Although, this is absolute confirmation of something we've all been wondering for quite some time:

Okay, uh, spoke too soon, actually we don't know about the hair yet. I kind of doubt it though, the way it's described.
Also, how is that confirmation?

So much for Ajimu's 'main character' or anything that can defeat Medaka.....

Ajimu had to avoid fighting directly because she was a 'protagonist' or 'main character' of the story as you know the protagonist always wins in most shonen manga. With the Devil Style gone, coincidences are gonna come left and right for Medaka or any 'protagonist' character that come across.

Okay, now that I think I understand a little more about what Nisio is trying to accomplish with this character and this arc, I think I'm a hell of a lot more enthusiastic about the manga again.

what the heck? How does Iihiko qualify as a protagonist character? Is it just some overpowered designation now?

Knowing Nishio? Maybe he's a protagonist from another series?

Spoiler for speculation:
But didn't she still accomplish this in the end of the True Flask Plan Arc? It would seem that she saw an impossibility being made right in front of her.
