Medaka Box episode 02
Wow, I had so much fun watching this. Still, I have seen a lot of people come by, saying that they didn’t like this anime because of the dry comedy. I guess I just don’t share that opinion, seeing as I almost destroyed my lungs during this episode. It was really funny!
Medaka-chan and Zenkichi spent the first half looking for someone that destroyed a pair of field & track shoes. Jealousy is a b*tch, I know. The only thing that I disagree with here is Medaka’s ability to instantly find those little things. For example; take today’s episode. Someone destroyed someone else’s shoes out of jealousy. Medaka knew exactly, just by looking, what kind of tool was used, which hand, and why the culprit would go about doing those things. Come on… At least make things a little bit more difficult. Still, that was only the first half, as the second half was so much better.
I’m sure that we all know that Zenkichi was dragged into the council to help Medaka-chan, because even she has her flaws. Dealing with animals is one of those flaws. The second half was all about the retrieval of some dog. However, this dog has been lost for some time now, so it was all grown up and wild. Zenkichi did his best to capture, but, thanks to hansode, he only ended up getting hurt.
That’s when he came back to tell Medaka about what happened. I don’t know why, but she got the idea to dress up like a dog, erotically I might add, and go and try to become friends with it. It goes without saying that she scared the living daylights out of it, despite all the fan service. It’s not that Medaka-chan dislikes animals, it’s that animes dislike Medaka-chan, apparently. Still, I laughed and cheered throughout the episode.
The show is currently still missing a few main characters, so I expect to see them within the next two episodes. I doubt that you’d introduce a main character halfway through. I’m really looking forward to seeing what kind of characters they will introduce. Ugh, I wish I could speed-up time.
