Medaka Box Episode #02 Anime Review

The opening episode of Medaka Box wasn’t one that blew me away, but it had some fun moments and went for the gusto by giving us a lead character who petty much hits every cliche that you’d expect and did it faster than most other series do. While it focused largely on Medaka, it also worked how the relationship with childhood friend Zenkichi worked as he’s the otherwise normal guy in the pairing who is most of the time just suffering through what’s going on. As it played out, you could easily see where it’s going to go and it did it with a bit of style but not enough uniqueness to make it stand out, especially for a series being done by Gainax. That in the end may work against it the most unless it does something radical, which isn’t expected since it’s adapting a known work.
