All these years later I'm still mad they didn't adapt the minus arc
>>
>>154359297
This. The minus arc and the student council election were the best arcs in the whole manga. It could've ended with Zenkichi becoming president and I would've been happy.

what happened to him?
>>
>>154359512
what are the brackets for? i never understood that
>>
>>154360261
It's a Japanese pun.

>The reason why Kumagawa's "speaks" in brackets is a bit of a pun (see 『カギカッコ』). The context here implies literally [括弧]{かっこ}つける (kakko tsukeru), meaning "to add brackets/parenthesis (to something, e.g., a sentence)." The pun involves a well-known expression [格好]{かっこ}つける (kakko tsukeru), meaning "to show off or try to look cool." Kumagawa speaks in the way he does because he is trying to sound cool.

When he's being sincere, he doesn't use the brackets, as in >>154359512
>>
Fuck, what was that one page where he says "I'm the victim!" and Medaka loses her shit?

Here is what you need to know. In the second Shonen Jump popularity poll contest, Kumagawa won with almost four thousand votes. And Medaka the main protag who holds second place, didn't even reach a thousand.

He's basically /ourguy/

He loved a girl. But he was afraid that he only loved her because she was beautiful. So he ripped off her face. He still loved her even without a face so he was happy that he isn't shallow.

Nips had shit taste big deal, if can't even explain it means he's just some stuck up generic character that nips usually love.

all he did was rip a god's face off to test his love.

everyone was a shit to him without even trying to understand him.

Sometimes it feels like Nisio's trying way too hard to look edgy. You feel like he's conveying some kind of message about modern manga but it's hiding behind too many layers of irony.
>>
>>154367480
I always loved his minus's believe though.
>>
>first few powers have psuedo-science explanations
>then comes a reality warper and a literal god
Nisio sure had no fucking clue what he was doing.
>>
>>154367569
plot twist:
he wasn't a minus the whole time, but was a non-equal that had a skill that turns all other skills that he gains into minus/negative skills and boosts their minus power over time. this is why when he got hundred gauntlets it turned into all fiction. it is also why he is able to make new skills by combining the skills he has (i.e. non-fiction and april-fiction).
>>
>>154367657
it was his first serialized manga and it wasn't originally supposed to be a battle shonen so its not really that surprising shit got pretty loose as it went on

No anon, a minus isn't based on what ability he had. It's about the personality and the outcome of those ability.
>>
anyone want to tell me why it turned into a battle manga for no reason?
>>
>>154367848
I for one, am glad that it turned to be battle manga. I dropped Medaka Box exactly at chapter one and picked it up again in chapter 56.

I have been there during weekly thread and even now I have never read chapter 2 - 54.
>>
>>154367809
not if your a non-equal.
anshini'n had both abnormalities(plus skills) and minuses because she was a non-equal.
>>
>>154367848
most likely popularity reasons. many jump manga go this way if they start to fall too low. Yu Yu Hakusho was originally just going to be Yusuke having ghost adventures.

>>154367759

Emukae's denial scene was tragic, but I'm glad they actually went through with Zen just saying "no" right to her face instead of stupid yandere shenanigans. Not like he was gonna end with anyone but Medaka in the first place.
She's still the best girl though and won in my heart ;_;

really? the sense I've gotten from his work is that he likes all those things

Yes but not as the main subject. He likes it as filler. He always goes full philosophical bullshit

Book Maker is OP as fuck you mongoloid. Kumagawa with All Fiction doesn't stand a chance against Ajimu, Medaka, etc. But Kumagawa with Book Maker can. He'll still lose though since that's the point of his character but it would give him a better chance than having All Fiction.

We should have gotten a spin-off about Kumagawa trying to enter the work force while trying to be a responsible adult. In his own way
Or, even better, Medaka gives Kumagawa a gig as a teacher in Hakoniwa and we get "GTK"

Are there any other absolute madman characters that were more fun than Kumagawa?
Reigen from Mob Psycho 100 was based too but he was nowhere near Kumagawa's levels

but I thought it was a "no surprises" style like
oh you have another transformation? nope. well maybe not exactly but the exact manga page explained it better

>>154372264
He appeared in a total of 2 episodes of the anime and I still think he was the best thing on it.
And that extra episode's villain was retarded
That piano going nuts when he appeared in the last actual episode of abnormal was so great. They wasted Ogata by not making a "minus" season, she did a spectacular job.

I'm still pretty mad, the anime was such horse shit compared to the manga. Why does monogatari get such a good budget and medaka box doesn't?
>>
>>154363360
Dude, she was cute, and their relationship had promise with the first-name basis and him coming back from the dead to help her, but I doubt that.
They say the last time they saw him was the graduation ceremony and in the last chapter, the narration says Kumagawa vanished without a trace in defiance to the rest of the planet.
Unless he pulled some memory erasing shenanigans on Mogana, the kid ain't his.
