Medaka box chapter 151

I found myself a new fetish

I’m on fire today, I’m in the mood for reviewing today and my 2 favorite series also happens to have their newest chapters out. So anyway, Kumagawa finally showed up and with a VERY interesting color page i might add. Naze agreed to do the ‘Hand bra-jeans’ as long as Kumagawa help them and so he did. Then they asked him why is he still here since the Jet black wedding festival already moved out from its location, but he only answered-

Kinda cheesy don’t you think?

Nienami and Kanaino tried to warn Mogura about Kumagawa since he seems different from the rest of the gang, but Mogura got big-headed and ignored them since they’re apparently a ‘loser’. Kumagawa got his left hand blown off on the first attack, well seeing that he has ‘All-fiction’ i guess it’s fine to be reckless. Then again, it’s not my arm so i shouldn’t complaint.. Kumagawa, being the minus he is started spouting off nonsense about them based on gag manga and there shouldn’t be a hand-blowing stuff or something like that.

To hell with the 4th wall!!

Now Nishio-sensei likes to mess with our heads by making something that’s either complicated or just makes no sense. For examples, we’ve met with Unzen’s sister, Unzen Myouga who speaks by using numbers or ‘math language’ or so they said. I’ve actually seen a translator note that says translating those chapters is hard as hell. There’s also Kumagawa who likes to talk about something that’s unrelated to the case but somehow makes sense. Like when he met Medaka on the underground facility and says that he’s not Kumagawa Misogi but his younger twin brother Kumagawa Yuuki and then said it himself that he lied. Or when he said that he’s not at fault when it’s clear that he’s the one who stabs the plus 6 and the loser team, it’s just that crazy.

So now we have the ‘language user’ Nienami who uses 7 sword style by stabbing 3 swords in each hand to use them, Kanaino who can manipulate kanji so that it would have different meaning, and now Mogura who can convert words.

‘Simply’ indeed

After that, Kumagawa was beaten senseless and it turns out he lets himself to be beaten so that Emukae can finally hear a reply from Zenkichi about her feelings. Zenkichi, not wanting to waste Kumagawa and Emukae’s effort, decided to stab himself with a sword for being oblivious to Emukae’s feelings.

After rejecting her because he will always in love with Medaka, Emukae said her thanks for letting her fall in love with him. Kanaino sighs and says that this isn’t some love-comedy crap but Nienami cries instead. Mogura laugh it off and Kumagawa just said that he hoped that Emukae will fal for him after Zenkichi rejects her but once again, he just couldn’t win (his favorite phrase). Mogura then charged at him for being in such an unclear relationship while Kumagawa replied that he might have gone soft after all that happened, which resulted in him caring for his juniors and friends making him use the ‘book maker’ on her.

Nice play on words Kumagawa..

So this chapter is basically how Mogura is defeated, and probably the return of Kumagawa too after a long time. Now if only Naze would keep her promise on the next chapter..

A first look at Medaka box

Image Image Image Image Image Image

Third post and yet I still have so much to share. I know that I’m already 11 episodes too late to review or talk about it, but better late than never right? So here we have the OP which is titled Happy Crazy Boxby Kuribayashi Minami. Personally i think the song title matches the anime itself, since it’s about a suggestion box and an insanely inhuman student council president. Anyway, that’s just me. Personally i think Gainax always goes for these kinds of anime, considering Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann also about some robot battles with occasional yet strong fanservice.

So we start by Medaka giving her infamous speech about the center of this story, namely the suggestion box. It’s been said that the reason she won 98% votes from the school is mainly because of the said box. Anyhow, besides Medaka there’s also her childhood friend named Hitoyoshi Zenkichi with his friend Shiranui Hansode. Apparently, Zenkichi has had enough helping Medaka since they were little. Which makes him refuse it on the spot when Shiranui asked him if he wants to join the student council. But apparently, Medaka had a different idea..

Turns out Medaka just want a company from Zenkichi, and seeing her face, how can he says no? Anyway, the suggestion box apparently already had a suggestion coming in. The request asks them to clear out some delinquents at the kendo dojo, and it’s from an anonymous source. Well, that won’t stop our lovely president won’t it? And so she goes!

Here’s the funny thing, this Moji fellow actually looks like Kamina! Not only that, he also uses the same weapon as Kamina, and even has the same seiyuu! Well played Gainax, well played… Back to the story, after Medaka-chan beat some senses onto them. She started to clean the dojo so that people would start using it again. Not only that, the people who uses it are Kamina Moji and his group. I guess all’s well that ends well. Unfortunately, on his way home Zenkichi’s been attacked by some mysterious fellow who’s actually Hyuga! Zenkichi’s classmate and also the one who put the request in the suggestion box.

Things escalated, but in the end Medaka manages to subdue Hyuga, thanks to Shiranui’s request. Shiranui is a strange fellow, she’s the kind of person that always jokes around but actually has a dark personality, eventhough around Zenkichi she decides to be the former i guess she’s just the ‘go-with-the-flow’ kind of girl. I like her though, she’s a great supporting character for both Medaka and Zenkichi, and Kato emiri’s voice just makes her more adorable ❤ Anyway, in the end, after hearing Medaka’s dreams about fulfilling the school with flower, Zenkichi decided to join the student council albeit from the lowest positions, but Medaka cheers him up on reaching for the top. Well, the ED (Ohanabatake ni Tsuretette) this time only serves as an insert song, so no ED sequence yet! So i guess this episode is great for the debut ones, the art is clean, and the seiyuus managed to capture their own personality perfectly. I honestly have high hopes for this anime, i hope it will be a huge successs 🙂

Next episode

Next we’ll have a case of blackmailing and a missing dog who evolves into a demon wolf, and poor Zenkichi must capture it because Medaka has err… ‘Issues’ with animals. Will he succeed? Stay tuned!

A look at my preferences

It’s only been a day and yet I’m already in the mood to write another post. Since i asked for recommendations last time, i figured i should’ve told you what kind of animes I’ve been watching. The first anime that makes me crazy about it so far would be Hayate no Gotoku (or Hayate the combat butler as you guys might prefer it, for me it’s just ridiculous). I’ve already finished watching the whole 2 season and the movie as well, which is titled ‘Heaven is a place on earth’.

Image

Watching the 3 of them, i gotta say the art has improved greatly. Which makes me even more eager for season 3 😀 Besides that, the other animes I’ve been watching are ‘Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu’, ‘Megaman starforce’, and ‘Danshi koukousei no nichijou’. So i guess from that you can say I’m a hardcore comedy fan, although i won’t mind some romance and action to come with it.

Speaking of Heaven is a place on earth, i gotta say the story is refreshing after being peppered by 2 seasons of comedy (which sometimes is kinda cheesy) It’s nice to see Hayate in a mysterious situation. I mean, one of the reasons i can’t wait for season 3 is because of ‘The end of the world’ arc. Nevertheless, the comedy is also great in here, and Ruka also sang for the opening. How cool was that?!

Also, the main different i recognize in this movie, is that NAGI IS SO DAMN CUTE!! I admit, on the 1st season i really hate her guts, and since i watch it in english dubs the annoyance just increased tenfold. But not here my fellow reader, the drawings are so smooth i even almost let her took the 1st place on my ‘Favorite anime girls list’. That, plus the beauty that is Kugimiya rie’s voice makes the movie a whole lot better for the ears, especially when she went all ‘Hayate, Hayate, Hayate~’ i think the kawaii meter just broke..

But of course the main attraction isn’t just Nagi, there’s also Kayura. Which i believe is her first anime-fied debut in this movie. She’s also a great supporting character which is being shown as Nagi’s best friend because of their same interest in otaku-ness. Overall, i can say this movie is a success in capturing my attention. I don’t know about you guys, but i think you all might wanna check it out.

Anyway, right now I’m following the Medaka box series. I’ve actually been following it since the manga because of it’s art and story. At first it’s really fun you know, a story about Student council whom taking care of the students’ problems. My favorite is the missing dog, i laughed so hard when i read it and more when i saw the anime episode. But then, the story just got weirder 😦 Anyhow, right now there’s only 11 episode that just came out so for those of you who prefers to download and watch it when they have the whole season, might have to wait for a long time. Although i heard the 1st season won’t include Kumagawa, so it might not be that long..

Anyway, I’m still in for your recommendations. Don’t hesitate to tell me, cause i might like it like you do ;D
