Chapter 142 is up
Looks like we were wrong about the Shiranui family being involved...Ha I love the team composition and the way Medaka basically picked them in reverse expandability. Why risk your friends when you know a bunch of guys who are insanely adept at not getting killed; strategy ^^. Nice to see other characters getting in on the fun in a major way, the same group constantly can get a bit dull.
Also quite amused by how all the suitors were a literal cluster-fck of certifiable looney's. I'm going to enjoy this arc for sure.
Yeah, I loved how Medaka was immediately getting to "alright, let's just beat the crap out of 'em". Don't blame her, what a horrifying bunch.
Wow, I forgot how much I missed Zenkichi when I watched the first episode (and my girl crush on Medaka).
Still, I'm glad Kumagawa is back, he brings so much character. It looks like Ajimu is up first, probably the best person to test the opponent's strength. As for the Shiranuis - well, hm. I still wonder why they were chosen.
Here is the chapter in its original quality: http://manga.cxcscans.com/reader/rea..._box/en/0/142/
This chapter explains a lot... A nudist --sort of, a siscon... (not sure about Kujira) It all kinda shows that Nisio was thinking about all this for a long time... =w=
By the way, Medaka family is all named after fishes (Kajiki: Swordfish, Maguro: Tuna, Kujira: Whale, Medaka: Killifish) and the Tsurubami family is named after birds (Fukurou: Owl, Kamome: Gull), so I was wondering if the sub-families' first names would be themed after animals, but I was gravely mistaken... It's not even close... (Puppet... Mirage... Reality... Mistake... Forgery...)
Sub-families... It's really Nisio-like. I wonder if we'll see any more members or any other sub-families...

My opinion might not seem like a big deal to you, but the link itself wasn't a big deal either when you think about it
Moderator message by: naruto-niichanPlease stop this discussion at once. I understand both yours and Tsuji's point of view but that's not a matter to discuss here. There's no harm with providing a link for newly released chapters though so feel free to post it as long as it's a safe site.
Anyway, I'm quite hyped about the chapter because I got all the characters I wished for. Kumagawa was a given but I'm really curious to see how Shiranui, Hanten and Anshin'in will fare against the suitors! I can't imagine Hanten fighting with his back towards the opponent so there's a good chance we will finally see his face too.
And the suitors... well all pretty crazy characters, I expected nothing less from Nisio. Too soon to judge them but they look fairly interesting.
Uh, I'm not the scanlator. [Cross] is.
As for Hanten: Can he even defend himself? His skill is just making skills, can he use any of them?
Well, from the looks of it Ajimu is going to solo
Well, even if that doesn't happen, I doubt Hanten is just useless. When we saw him in the flashback, Ajimu did say he was a being on her level, and he looked kind of like a knight so he's probably trained in some way. Maybe he has physical stats on par with specials or something, and then we'll see his ability.
We may finally see the Shiranuis fighting! That is already reason enough to read this arc and now we also get to see Anshin'in, this is going to be great!!!
Thank God Medaka decide to be free last arc because her suitors suck.
I find it interesting that nobody is taking note of Hanten's subtle characterization in this chapter.
His reward to be specific, which is his own drinking bar, maybe his dream is to be a bartender?
He always has his back to everyone, so it makes sense, I just found it rather funny.
Man I cannot wait until he does something, or maybe in his fight he doesn't do anything.
I doubt they'll reveal too much about him, and since this fight is pokemon style, he's going to have to lose eventually to move onto the next person, meaning he might just lose out of technicality without showing us anything.

It would be great if Hanten just stands there and his opponent can't do anything
And then the fight ends by default.
(How do you emote a refreshing sigh? Like this: =w= ? Or maybe just happy tears like this would work: TwT )
I feel like Medaka Box is finally getting more Nisio like... Every chapter gets better and better with things more and more getting drenched in 'nonsense'. (In no way, do I mean nonsense as a bad thing... Zaregoto would be more accurate...) This week's chapter can't be described in words --one needs 6 pages and 6 years to fill them with meaningful praise to even begin~~
A side note for those doubting Nisio's ability as a writer: Please wait for a few centuries for your beloved writer to be able to do what Nisio has done with 6 pages in this chapter. ^^ (Even centuries won't bring you anything if that someone is a certain mangaka prone to giant white backgrounds who can't even fill it with a real background let alone actual text --I'm still waiting for Shinji's bankai... T_T --then again, even if he does come up with it now, it won't be anywhere as good as I would have liked it to be.)
It might take a while for the scanlation to arrive because of those six pages (if Cross decides to everything in a good manner), so here are some spoilers:
Oh and... I'm sure some hacks will go on their Nisio-bashing spree and besides them, some will call Nisio a gigantic troll because of this chapter... I can't wait for that. =')

PS. Good luck translators. You'll need it today.

LOL it sure does. If anyone expects her to lose its because of the Shounen "new group of opponents totally outclasses you." you know like code breaker ...
This is much more realistic^^
All 6 of them!?! I didn't expect this. Wow, I thought the fight is 1 on 1.
