About MEDAKA BOX Complete Collection Blu-ray

When newly-elected Student Council President Medaka Kurokami started a suggestion box where people could suggest problems that needed to be solved, she wasn't expecting to have to do more than give advice and maybe rescue lost puppies.

Instead, what she and her best friend Zenkichi discover are the first hints of an unbelievable secret! A secret that their school, Hakoniwa Academy, their fellow students, and Medaka herself, are somehow at the very center of!

As what seemed like an innocent pastime turns into something far more dangerous, Medaka and her recruits to the Student Council are caught in a growing maelstrom! Now they'll have to discover new depths to both themselves and their own unexpected abilities, before things go completely out of control! Or is it already too late?

Get ready for a battle royale unlike anything you've ever seen before as the simple power of suggestion unlocks the secrets of MEDAKA BOX!

Contains episodes 1-24.

Muy buen animé

by

Excelente animación, chicas muy "Buenitas", entretenida y lo con una historia algo refrescante temáticamente ya que sale de lo común.

a terrible adaption of an excellent series

by

It's exactly what the one episode written by NisioisiN, the writer for the series, says it is: a low effort cash grab by someone who didn't get the material.

The animation is very slideshow throughout the majority of it and for a series that's written to be extremely satirical none of that comes through in the adaption; everything is played perfectly straight to the point of utter tonedeafness.

If you're interested at all in the premise or want to see a very funny, thoughtful, and layered satire of JUMP manga idealism, storytelling, characters, and even the process of writing Shounen JUMP manga, whether you enjoy it for cynically deconstructing these or for finding the heart and value buried down past banal cliches I'd highly recommend the manga.
