I was really worried about Medaka Box after reading Jhiday's review, but now that I've watched it I have to disagree with him. Yes the art wasn't great and it had a lot of fan service, but they managed to pack the first episode full of the story's central themes. I loved it.And I was looking forward to this. Oh, well. I can use that it doesn't have a simulcast as an excuse to give it a miss, until it is announced to have one (probably by the time I finish typing this sentence, knowing me) and give it a look. It turns into pretty-good shonen battle, but it takes a while. This proves my point (that I made to myself) that long-running series turned into manga aren't really for new folks, but rather to grab ratings and sell more merch and DVDs to comic readers. Obvious observation is obvious.
I wouldn't call it a Haruhi/Kyon dynamic either. Medaka never once insults Zenichi and states several times how important he is to her. And Zenichi never claims Medaka isn't completely awesome; he just doubts that she actually needs him around since she's an invincible, infallible superwoman. (Okay, she drags him around a bit. But unlike Haruhi and Kyon, it's because she knows him so well rather than because she's ignoring his feelings.)
