    Serialized: Weekly Shounen Jump
    Writer: Nishio Ishin
    Artist: AKATSUKI Akira
    Synopsis: Kurokami Medaka is a 1st year High School student who has become the newly elected Student Council President. In her first act as President, she establishes a suggestion box for the student body in order to help them. She also drags along her childhood friend Hitoyoshi Zenkichi to aid her in the Student Council even though he is reluctant. Together, they fulfill the various requests that have been placed within the Medaka Box.

    Well after reading the one-shot that was scanned a few days ago I can say that I've been anticipating and waiting for the first chapter to be released. The RAW is out for it as well so its just a matter of waiting for a scanlation. CXC-scans, who are the same group that scans Sket Dance, will be providing it.

    Here is hoping the 1st chapter is as good as or better than the one-shot. :D

    Skimmed through the raw of 1st chapter and it looks good. Read oneshont and also like it. I doubt it will be better than Sket Dance or Yankee-kun to Megane-chan, but still could be very good.
    I just hope as many new WSJ series, it won't be cancelled after few chapters. Assuming it wouldn't get much worse than oneshot.

    I think it could be safe during the next cut. Hoop Men will get the axe and then assuming Eyeshield ends by then. Otherwise, Medaka Box would have to be an instant hit like Beelzebub and Toriko for us not to have to worry about it being canceled.

    I was wondering what this was, but I suppose I'll avoid reading the one shot, and start with the real first chapter. The new jump mangas have been really good lately so I'm kind of excited.

    The oneshot was too rushed and forced at times. I don't really like the male lead, but the girl is not bad. I might be checking it out once it's scanlated.

    I was going to make this thread when I saw that CXC-scans did the English scan for the oneshot. But I was bit too busy with homework. :cry

    The oneshot did fell rushed.
    though it had potential, Just waiting for chapter one now.

    Excellent thing to wake up to. :quite

    Although there are some missing trans on a few pages so CXC's scans should be better when it is released.

    As for the chapter itself, it was very enjoyable for me. Had a nice mix of touching and funny moments. I eagerly look forward to the next one at any rate.

    1st chapter was good. I wonder if Medaka "tried her hand" in another martial arts with the same efficieny besides kendo (though, there probably nothing which she tried and couldn't do to 100%).
    I also hope sooner or later there will be another members in Student Council.

    It was a nice one that made me laugh at points. Of course a bit of fan service doesn't hurt either. :hurr

    I'd call it more of a Sket Dance and Haruhi fusion. Haruhi has more fanservice than Medaka Box so far.

    Although Medaka does indeed have bigger boobs than Haruhi. =P

    id like the uncensored version of that as well, also wouldnt mind medusa's pic minus cape and sword :hoho

    acutally i was thinking sket dan as well when i first read the description, maybe mixed in with a non supernatural version of the show with the female student council president that needs that kid to fight for her

    Series is okay but it's not good on comedy or nor do I find the characters all that interesting, seems to me the manga-ka added fanservice to make up for the lack of those things. I prefer Sket Dance and Yankee to Megane here.

    Chapter 2 was decent. I thought the track girl gave in too easily. At least there was a nice up shot.

    Medaka's deductive reasoning is unparalleled. Although she does appear to be naive concerning other things :lmao

    And the shot they had of her jumping was perfect :thumbs

    Read the oneshot and I'm really liking this series. Medaka gives me this Haruhi like feeling where she is in control of everything but you know she still needs the support of the main character to stay afloat (like Haruhi and Kyon's relationship). The art looks great and well drawn plus the little fanservice is not to bad either. Yup... will definitely be follwing this.

    Oh by the way ch 3 scans are out.

    Spoiler:
    I guess Medaka ain't all that powerful afterall but still has some human qualities. It appears that Medaka got extremely jealous when Zenkichi mentioned that him and Shinarui would team up and work together to capture the dog. Her expression in the dog suit was priceless. XD Anyway I don't know about some of you guys but as cute as Shiranui is I feel she is suspicious in some way. Shes always smiling and laughing, she definitely ploting something but what?

    3rd chapter is excellent and is the best one so far for me. :lmao

    "She's so smart she passed back into stupid" :rotfl

    Medaka's disguise was cute and the thing about animals fearing her was hilarious. Along with her jealousy it made her a character you can sympathize with more.

    There has only been one translator for the series so far. No idea if the person is busy or gave up on it.

    Lets hope for a trans sometime soon. :-(
