It's Medaka's Box, the manga that was really promising for about 20 chapters and then went to such shit that even WSJ readers despise it and let it sit at the bottom of the popularity polls for nearly its entire run.

So what's so terrible about it? Did it just devolve into endless plots that went nowhere or fanservice or what?
>> No. 62245
It went from fairly generic gag manga to even more generic fighting manga but with one of the greatest villains ever concieved. However, /a/'s main grieve with it is words, words, words, words words.

With Shonen Jump, that's inevitable. See: Yu-Gi-Oh, Yu-Yu Hakusho, Hitman Reborn,...

I sort of agree, anytime he's not there is awful, anytime he is HOWEVER, it is THE BEST.

I'm actually pretty happy about this! The nice thing about animated adaptions is sometimes they just take all the stuff that's good, dump the rest, and go their own way. Here's to hoping that's the route Gainax takes.

This girl really is a magical girl, isn't she?

Everyone is right, though, this manga is fucking terrible. But Kumagawa is amazing. I skim through half the scenes that he isn't in.

It only went down for the Flask Arc. Ever since it's been doing okay. Not great, but okay.

I dunno what everyone likes so much about the first bunch of chapters anyway, it's just monster-of-the-week stuff. That's fine for introducing characters, but it would've been boring for the next hundred. And besides, the meta-tastic plot that has arrived is really interesting, or it is to me at least.

So...now his powers will improve? Will become a Plus? Find it in the next issue of Medaka Box!

Ah crap.

Giving him his own series means his shtick won't be unique anymore. He'll wear out his welcome.

Somebody should keep the script writer on a tight leash so that it won't be heavy with the wordwordwords.

Also, they should've just done what Sasuke did in Naruto and stole the entire manga from the lead character.

I'd be more supportive of that.

Just started reading. It's painful.

When does Kumagawa come in?
>> No. 68840

Yeah, Kumagawa is such a good character because he's surrounded by "main characters". Make him a protagonist of his own series and it'll lose something.

Wait what if

What if his spinoff has him as a side character, and a whole new batch of new characters as the mains.

So even in his own spin off he isn't a main character!

But miracles are few and far between

Can anyone explain why exactly Medaka Box is so bad beyond wordswordswords? I don't feel like subjecting myself to it personally.
>> No. 82179
It's not bad. It's just horribly mediocre and has dragged on far, far too long. It's just that there were moments of utter brilliance shining through that made it such a disappointment. If you wanna know why people loved it at some point just read from chapter 55 to 92. And please, please stop after that.
>> No. 82187
It also uses metafiction like a sledgehammer in an attempt to be 2deep4u that just gets kinda annoying.
>> No. 82188
Oh and also the main character's conflict is literally that she is just too perfect and everyone is jealous.
No joke.
>> No. 82209

You know when you're watching something and it just won't stop hammering you over the head with LOOK HOW CLEVER I AM and you're just like 'okay yes I get it you are very clever can you actually tell a story now' and it's just like NOPE BUT CHECK OUT THIS CLEVER TRICK and then you take a step back and realize you're watching LOST and it's actually really shitty if you stop caring abot how quote-unquote clever it is?

Medaka Box is that every week.
