  • How is Zenkichi able to see now that he has lost Parasite Seeing?
    • I believe it has something to do with how Model Zenkichi works. This lets him see his own limits, so it lets him see what he is capable of. Thus Fridge Logic tells us that if he can see what he can do, in order to succeed all he needs to do is act on that. For example if someone throws a punch he is theoretically capable of blocking it, even if he can't see it. Thus he won't actually see them throw it in the way you and I do, he will see whether or not he is capable of blocking it, and if he can how he would do it. Then he does that, and blocks it. Or hell, maybe Model Zenkichi or Anshin'in just fixed his vision for him. Occam's Razor would dictate the latter.

    • I believe its more of the fact he was given eyes that had Parasite Seeing, that he still retains the eyes to see normally but isn't able to see other people's view now.
  • Why did they call Medaka's abnormality "The End"? It seems to me that it's more of a "Total Control" or "Absolute Mastery". The best reasoning behind "The End" is that it's a sort of "Finished Product" where everyone else just have a prototype of that skill, she then takes it as her own and turn it into a finished product.
    • Because it sounds cool.
    • Because there is nothing beyond that. "Oh you have this really good skill? Now I have it too,along with every other skill I have seen (and, eventually, only heard of) and can use them to 120% of their capability." The End. Boom. Finite. Minus and Abnormalities going against her would only make her stronger. Not to mention the already eistent Mary Sue-Like qualities Medaka already has.

How well does it match the trope?
