The only real jump in logic, then, was the idea of matching the hiragana characters in the message up with the names of Medaka Box characters. With 42 hiragana syllables and 6 names total, that's on average about ~7 syllables per name. I don't think there's really any logical train of thought that would lead to someone guessing at that possibility; it would have to be just some random flash of insight leading to the correct identification of one name, leading up from there.

On the whole though, great stuff.
People did figure it out. At least up to the 6 names. The moon thing was mentioned, but I didn't see anyone saying "they are going to the moon". Here's an excerpt from a blog post commenting on chapter 151.

First time in a while with this manga...
I already told you once not jump to conclusions before reading the chapter translated, didn't I?

Wow, so some people did get it huh. That is pretty cool. There's no point in including a riddle that no one's ever gonna solve, but since people actually got that far I imagine a decent portion of the community must have gotten some decent speculation and enjoyment out of it.

Kumagawa sudden appearance explained. He was just trolling, as expected.

And the "Anshin-san still enjoys being sealed off" made me laugh histerically. Man, I love this woman.

I want to drop this manga but at the same time I want to know how it ends. It is a paradox.

Why? Might as well drop it and come back later, there's no known overiding plot and arcs are determined in an arc by arc basis, so it's not like there's any specific event you mostly know will occur and want to see how it pans out beyond this arc.

It's almost like a slice of life with it's lack of plot, but it has some action currently mixed in. I was going to compare the known plot to bleach, but we actually know more of the overiding plot of Bleach in comparison to Medaka box.

If you want to drop it might as well drop it now, there's nothing stopping you from picking it back up later. It's not like you have to drop it permanently.

Sui said all 6 suitors were language users....so swords aside...I wonder what Namanie's Word Skill is.

Sui uses Kanji Style, it re-arranges kanji to change their meaning and effect.

Mogura uses Misconversion Style, she converts words from the wrong hiragana to change their meaning and effect.

Since Namanie's verbal tic(Ruki) is Kiru(meaning to cut in Hiragana) backwards, I'm guessing her Style has to do with reversing hiragana.

...also....we never got a full explanantion of what the Kamome System does.
I wonder if he has a Word Style too?

I see that most probably ending in rejection. Not really sure if Nisio has the balls to end it here.

Well....it's true that seem the most likely scenario to happen. Still I hope the author take another route.

Well, Nisio might choose to surprise us, and instead take pot-shots at Rom-Coms where the two character have confessed and are now in an actual relationship.

Ie: Clannad Afterstory, Mysterious Girlfriend X, etc.

Confession is not necessarily the end.

As stated before...having the main characters start a relationship doesn't mean the end of the series. Not by a long shot.

Considering Medaka Box's lack of an overiding plot Medaka and Zenkichi's relationship is the most consistent part of the story. So I was wondering whether Nisio had the balls to finish off that part of the story and move on or will he drag it out to the end.

Nishino I hope will not "pull" (as rubber) story. Now Zen said very clearly: I love and will love only Medaka. In DxD took 10 volumes before confession Issei x Rias. I do not think that the author makes the tragic ending. We can only "kill" a character, but to change the Zen x Medaka to Zen x another girl - it is impossible. As for the continuation after confession - there are many more steps. Before the marriage you can do a lot of ch.
