Medaka Box Abnormal episode 09

I don’t any one has any real complaints about this episode, yet I feel as though something was missing… I just can’t put my finger on it. Maybe it’s because the characters are actually developing super powers? I don’t know…

First of all; I’m glad I didn’t have to put up with any of those six new characters this week. Hell, I’ll be even happier when I won’t have to at all, but I doubt that this season will end without putting them in the spotlight for an episode or two. Six new characters, six new special abilities and six new problems… As if Medaka and the rest of the student council didn’t have enough problems already.

The first match was between Mogana and Mizou, a creepy little boy that can read people’s minds, or so they claim. I have to say that their fight contained more fan service than action, especially when Mogana fired of another one of her supersonic blasts, causing the ceiling above her to cave in a little. Basically, she ended up in her swimming suit, bent over for the whole world to see.

It soon escalated when Oudo showed up, after which Zenkichi showed up, after which Medaka showed and probably after which a battle between friends will break out, now that Medaka has been successfully brainwashed by her older sister. Lost? Don’t worry, I was too at one point. You really have to see that scene twice before it starts making sense.

Now, the one thing that really caught my eye was that the characters are actually using super powers now. I really don’t like that. Things were a bit simpler. That boxer fought purely on instinct, that swordsmen was great at concealing weapons (although he couldn’t possibly conceal so many, but still…) and that little brat could read people. It’s somehow possible, I suppose, but along comes Mogana with her supersonic blasts and Odou with his EMP’s… I really don’t like that.

  1. Well first off: In the manga it’s suggested that Yukuhashi is a girl, though I don’t think they actually confirmed what gender he/she is. Second, if you don’t like the “abnormalities” then I’ll suggest you save yourself the trouble as things will get far more insane as things move on. 😛
