I will start off with a quick plot summary of Medaka Box before I get to the review.
Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens.
Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; and a determined woman undertakes the most treacherous of journeys. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.
Ohh, dammit wrong series I apologize. If only this was what this cursed series was actually about; instead of me actually plagiarizing the back of the Game of Thrones book.
Instead Medaka Box is about a first year high school girl who has really big boobs who has just become the president of her school with a large majority of the vote. She wears a really slutty outfit and she talk down to people. She has a childhood friend who has boner for her but he won’t admit. They go around beating up delinquents. Well that what I got out of the episode.
Gainax, an anime studio known for boobs, animates Medaka Box. They have put out the amazing FLCL in the year 2000 and they have only put out shit since; well except for Gurren Laagan, which was okay. The Manga is doing extremely well in Japan so it should be great right? Wrong!!! The show is aimed at a teen male audience and it has everything that age group that I am still apart of for a few more months loves. It consists of fan service, violence, failed jokes and possible romance. The show tries awful hard to appear cute but it failed at that. The action (when boobs weren’t getting in the way) was the only redeemable aspect of this show. There was kendo/sword fighting which was pretty cool.
I understand the show’s appeal, I really do but I think at this point in my life I have matured away from shitty fan-service series. I am much more excited about series like Kids on the Slope or Space Brothers, instead of the action series that I used to love. I swear to God Sankarea if you turn out to be a series like this I am going to get pissed. Overall if you hate cliché shit stay away from this one, I am going to give it another episode or two just to give it a little bit of a chance; until next time.
