Should Medaka Box be compared to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya?

Addition: The pre genre shift, maybe. but the current series is its own thing.

Right now Ajimu is listed under Arch-Enemy, but is it really an example of the trope? If i am understanding this right it refers to an enemy who The Hero has a special relation to or a more potent motivation for dealing with.

Ajimu and Medaka was never really established as strong enemies and they were even pretty firendly with each other. I'm not sure so could someone with a better understanding of it could take a look at it.

Honestly, Kumagawa would be the Arch-Enemy, if anyone. Ajimu would be The Man Behind the Man.

  • I Got Better: Kumagawa uses his All-Fiction Minus to do this. Zenkichi gets a reaction from Kumagawa after doing the same.
    • This is how we're told that Kumagawa still has All-Fiction. Munakata kills Kumagawa, and he stands right back up in perfect health minutes afterwards.

I Got Better has been renamed to Unexplained Recovery. This example doesn't seem to fit the current trope definition. Leaving it here for someone with actual knowledge to verify.

Requesting to change the page image to one taken from the new anime, on the basis that firstly it will be in colour rather than black and white, and secondly in my opinion the current image is kinda hard to see anyway.

Fanfiction recommendation: Those Who Love Monsters by Gabriel Blessing, there's not a Fic rec area yet but putting this down here for when someone wants to look at starting one. Gabriel seems almost prescient about events in Medaka box when he wrote it, around Ch. 120.
