At the very least he needs to answer the big question between Zenkichi and Medaka: Why do these two really stick around with each other? Heck, two chapters ago Zenkichi narrated that he and Medaka never played on stage together. Furthermore, we had Medaka mysteriously crying and an entire page of Ajimu going "WTF?!" in response to it. What does all this material allude to? If Nisio planned on prematurely dumping everything then there's no point in introducing new material.

    The manga needs at least one more arc in order to properly resolve everything. Then it can end.
    Right, there's way too much left in the air to be answered, and it can't be all explained in a chapter. Unless they literally spend the entire chapter explaining everything, as well as find a way to end it all.

    Who knows, maybe that's the third Medaka Box project that was announced. Maybe the anime will be set after the manga but only for Ajimu.

    Nothing bad about just one more chapter. I'd say that is a sign of respect to the author.

    So, Zenkichi won spectacularly. I thought that if he won, then Medaka would have been rejected. Still, this is highly optimistic of the mangaka - that if someone points out a population's dependency on someone/thing, then they will recoil. I don't believe that has as much an effect. Here it also helped that Medaka has revealed herself as almost inhuman, with her insane abilities, despite using them for good.

    Assuming current spoilers are true, this chapter brings us blatant usages of deus ex machina, inconsistent characterizations, illogical storytelling, flawed morality lessons, and half-assed resolutions/abandonments to ongoing plotlines. I wouldn't even rate this chapter a 0/5. I'm ready to call "worse chapter ever" because these developments are something you'd only find in crap like Naruto, Negima, and Fairy Tail. This spoiler makes it feel like the chapter was written by a random fanfiction writer than Nisio himself.

    Chapter 140 is out.

    All I can say is "hurray for Zenkichi" and "Ajimu is effing crazy".

    That was.......interesting.

    It wasn't exactly a crisp tie up but, in a way, it was satisfying.

    Oh LOL. This chapter was a giant pun doubling as a pep talk. A character who thinks a manga world is a manga and has a manga character slap her silly for it? The irony is incredible. I laughed my ass off at "life is epic" - come to think of it, I've said that before to someone really depressed.

    And awww, Zenkichi! You finally got her!

    Re: Medaka Box by NISHIO Ishin and AKATSUKI Akira

    I know I should be more focused on WTF Aijimu is going to learn about "reality", and if Medaka is really the right teacher for her, but I'm too distracted by the kiss. Its just so rare for a main character couple to actually become canon before the manga ends its making my head spin. @__@ I wonder how long it'll take before Nisio trolls it, it just seems so unreal. I'm more excited about the concept of seeing Medaka being in love and stuff (Not that she'll be lovey-dovey...that I KNOW won't happen). It'll drive everyone crazy, that's for sure!

    Oh and um, the real answer to Aijimu's delusion? She's been infected with an idea, of course. To stop the madess Medaka and co. will just have to go deeper.

    That was really punny, Nisio. But I liked how he made it so that there will be no more fourth-wall breaking again in the next chapters(?). At least that's what it told me when this thing with Anshin'in was resolved.

    And I'm looking forward to watching episode 1.

    Yeah, seeing Medaka in the last page being too feminine and all is really weird. But this is NisiOisiN here so expect further trolling.

    Speaking of which, we know of something that might be a roadblock for the greatest romance in the world right? Medaka has 7 suitors right?
