Spring Anime Season 2012 Preview: Medaka Box (めだかボックス)

The Medaka Box – this is the nickname given to the academy’s new suggestion box that the newly elected Student Council president has put up in order to create order and solve her voters’ problems and situations. 

Odd, somewhat scary and very active – this is the true self of Medaka Kurokami. Except for being always at the centre of attention (or pushing the limits of the others for that matter) she is also aware of every situation in her school. By winning the elections for the position of School Council President with the mesmerising 98%, she is gradually becoming more involved with everything that happens inside the walls of this very usual school. However, have you ever thought exactly what happens within the heads of students? Love, hatred, embarrassment, ambitions; there is also a certain amount of laziness that gets into the way of success – all of those are just a small piece of the puzzle that is stored within every school’s boarders.

Medaka has a solution to every problem, or at least an idea for it! One of the best ideas and decisions she has ever taken (after entering the race for the position) is the Suggestion Box. It is the main story line in this show. The place where all wishes, feedback and of course suggestions go there. Medaka and her newly compiled Council will need a long time and quite a big amount of patience to do it all. Medaka, though, will definitely succeed just as she did with the elections.

I definitely expect a good show and a lot of fun, irony and sarcasm in this upcoming show. I am certain the authors have a pretty big experience with creating hits; the deal is to be good with temperance. Would they be able to do it?
