This is supposed to be a review for episode 08 but I decided to write it in such a way that it feels more like a progress report rather than an actual episode review. Actually I have started to dislike this show a little, I mean I hate the impossibles in a close-to-reality anime, whether it’s superpower abilities like those displayed by Medaka and her potential enemies or a more ‘normal’ ones like the ridiculousness found in Kuroko’s Basketball.
Ridiculous abilities should have been fine for me but if they gave me the impression that they can’t be defeated (in this case by Medaka) then I’d feel uneasy about it. In this episode Medaka has met one of her potential enemies, I guess. I’m not really say enemy but there’s something I hate about the “school police” and I believe many of you out there also agree with me.
This might also become my last review for Medaka Box, seeing that this show has come to a point of seriousness which I have expected for a while. However it would still in my priority list and I’ll keep watching newer episodes as soon as they are available. Oh well I also decided to keep this ‘report’ short as I think this episode has less interesting stuff than previous ones.
This show is originally planned to have 12 episodes. So far I haven’t heard anything about the episodes will be extended (or they might add it on the last minute like Shitty Crown). If they still stick to 12 episodes so I could predict the next 4 remaining episodes will be a new arc of student council versus disciplinary committee.
