Medaka Box

Kurokami Medaka, a first year, is elected as Student Council President, and the first thing she does is establish a suggestion box, later dubbed by students the "Medaka Box." Medaka encourages students to submit any problem to the box without hesitation and promises to take on any issue from anyone.

Since Medaka won the Student Council elections with a staggering 98% of the vote, she ends up as the Council's only member. She asks her childhood friend, Hitoyoshi Zenkichi, for help and he grudgingly agrees, becoming the Student Council's lowest ranking member. Soon Medaka recruits two more people to the Student Council, the former judo club member Akune Kouki as secretary and the current swim club member Kikaijima Mogana, on loan for 300 yen a day, as treasurer.

Now the Student Council members spend their days solving the problems submitted through the Medaka Box, whether they be hooligans in clubs where they don't belong, girls who need help writing love letters or people who've lost their pets, gradually earning the respect and admiration of the entire school.

A Big Fat WTF?!

this series seriously pulled one of those after the Unzen arc everything became kinda cloudy, confusing, and really lame. But I still don't want to stop reading, especially after coming this far, I want to see Zenkichi get together with Medeka. To be honest this manga could be easily saved if the mangaka ends it after this arc, or stops writing his chapters while on peyote and ripping off ten-ten. I don't see the first one happening because it seems he still wants to do more with the story so lets hope for the second one.
But when you think about it, MB could be a parody of shonen manga and their heroes. Because for the most part Medaka is your typical shonen hero, so maybe all the stupid things Medaka does and the now non-existent plot is all a parody on the absurdity of the shounen genre.

the start of the manga was awesome and i really enjoyed the whole thing, but i stopped reading at chapter 46, since everything was just going down the hill... and getting some ridiculous abilities that can no longer be called freak... eating bullets? hold your breath for 1 month? brainwashing skills with your hand only?... now we are not talking about special qualities, we are talking about superpowers, things started off with some people having awesome special qualities like throwing all dices and getting only its we are in the supernatural genre, for now im giving it a rest to let it get some chapters before i begin to read again

I loved the begging so much. I even thought the fight between Medaka and the Bouncing Ball kid (what's his name) was awesome. The art was amazing, I loved the characters, and the plot. Then the series went downhill introducing the so called Flash Plan. I've been trying to stick with this series, but I just can't read this anymore. I really hope the series gets a second chance in a different magazine and doesn't screw up the plot again.

I loved the one shot and had really high hopes for this manga, but after the whole Unzen saga and introduction of "Flask plan" arc I pretty much lost all interest in this series and dropped it at ch.22.

Such a pity, this manga had such potential. T_T

The series started off amusing. I mean a do-it-all girl and a bunch of eye candy fanservice for the guys, lol. But then after awhile, this series got weird.... REALLY weird... A secret school experimenting with children with superhuman powers. Umm.... what? I give it to the author for trying. However, this series went from entertaining to outright stupid and random.

I loved the oneshot. I was hopeful because of it. Then the first chapters came out and I was disappointed. The characters lacked the special qualities they had and in their place cookie-cutter cliches were substituted in and the main character became weaker and whiny. But it still had some entertainment value, or should I say hope for the future. Then the mangaka throws in the cliched love rival and this bizarre emphasis on poor fighting scenes and bypasses the whole school comedy aspects that the oneshot had. Its craptastic. If you want fighting read HSDK and if you want a school comedy read Yankee-kun to Megane-chan. This has nothing to offer for anyone with half a brain.

This series started out well, but after the first 15 or so chapters it started to decline. As far as I can tell from my most recent view of ch 34-35 the slope of the decline has become much steeper. IOW, it has gone from good to bad to worse. I see no point in wasting any further time on it.

it seems like this guy draws doujinshi.

at least that's the nuance i get from his style.

which isn't a bad thing at all. i just wish he publicly released his doujin work. i bet he's made some doujin drawings just for fun.

I liked the beginning with the introduction of the strange student council president and her conquest for the sake of others.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Since the appearance of the Uzen and his enforcer everything changed to more serious and fighting focused development.
At first, I didn't like the class 13 and flask-plan idea, it didn't fit with my expectations of the development. But I got even more fired up than in the beginning when she trained with her brother and is now fighting in the dungeon below the school. Now I want more of this. Medaka fight-oh!

The first ten chapters lives up with the series' title, but after I don't know what to think of this series. In fact, I fell in love with the one shot alot! However, after ten chapters the manga takes a huge turn going into battle mode in ridiculous ways and plot. I don't mind it going into battle, but the author should have made better development to story, or give this series a restart. The only thing good of this series is the art. As much as I disliked the story's turn..I might just read it for my favorite character, Zenkichi and art. That's pretty much it.
