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.

The manga starts rather good, great art, great characters, good and fun story.
It was something light and fun you could read whenever you felt like it.
And I don't know what happened, as many mentioned, the manga just... transformed itself. From a light comedy, it turned into a fighting manga. The main character somehow switched from one character to another, all side characters became useless (what was the character build up from the first chapters for anyway?).
The fighting is rather disapointing, the girl that was classy and cool is now a super sayien in fighting mode.
Well... I just lost interest. I would probably have read this manga till the end if they kept going as it was previously... But now... I'll probably just forget about it.

yes, that realy booring, what's so good about the female main character, and my should-be-the-main-character turn out to be a lame, pathetic, loser, oh my, what happened, and why all characters have an ab blood type, i wonder, is that an ab blood type world?? and i feel sick when looked at the eyes of characters, why it can't be a normal eyes, and everything in the manga were being exaggerated, and i never laugh when read this manga, so it can't be a comedy

The first 1-18 chapters are great, but the series starts to lose its flavor. It goes from Comedy / High school setting to a Martial Arts / Action High school setting. The character everyone thinks is the main protagonist turns out to be a side character. The fighting is just horrible. The only thing it has going is the art.

It is worth reading the first 20 chapters, any chapters after that is up to you to read.

the first few chapters of this manga are really great, with a good art and story, but in the later chapter the quality of the story down...
I hope it will improve and back to be what it was, without just show Medaka winning everyone e ignore who in the start was the protagonist

to anyone that gets sucked into the bayesian avg. like i did, i suggest u SERIOUSLY rethink this manga. look at kevadu's wall of text and you will see why.

this manga is some HSDK wannabe with no direction and anyone with a knack for storytelling could come up with a better plot than this.

... its a quite forgettable manga. never read it, even if u have spare time and NO OTHER MANGAS ON YOUR WISHLIST >.> every chapter gets worse and worse. as if the author thinks by adding more and more he can somehow make the storyline better. but they only way it could possibly save itself now was if the whole manga just started from scratch, and only the artwork remained. Beause to be perfectly honest, thats the only good thing about this manga.

Well, I've just read chapter 23 of Medaka Box manga. It was cool when I started reading the series.The first few chapters were pretty funny and a lots of comedy and then it turned into a shounen battle which sucked. The other main male character lost his role. I meant that he become sidelines. From major role to minor role, just like that. He lost his purpose on the manga. I'm sorry to say this but it's getting boring.

Good art, funny story and unique characters. It is pretty silly, it does drag a bit and it is becoming a bit predictable. Chapter 21 is the conclusion of a major story arc so now is a good time to test drive it.

This manga really is great and unique in the first few chapters (chapter 1-10 i think). However, the later chapters are really suck. The jokes just get repeated and there aren't any thing new at all. Plus, like the other person said, the other characters are better off not exist. In addition, the male protagonist is lame since well all the works are done by the super woman. I think he's actually just there to create some retarted jokes and to make the superwoman look more beastly. After 20 chapters, i wonder if he is really a protagonist or just a supported character. In my opinion, he's just a supported character execpt for the fact that he appears in the first chapter which gives us a feeling that he should be a main character.

Besides, what's up with the romance tag? I truly believe that there is absolutely no romance in this manga. If this manga deserve a romance tag, than manga such as naruto should get one too.

I used to be a big fan of this manga back when it was first starting out. The idea of having a main character who is capable of doing anything was kind of amusing at first, when it was balanced out with the idea that the male lead could handle some stuff on his own. But newer chapters seem to promote the idea that the other characters might as well not exist since miss Super Woman can do anything on her own. The art is very good for the most part, but it's hard to get behind a manga where the main character is the biggest detraction point for me.
