Medaka Box is a 2012 animated television series that aired on TV Tokyo. Produced by studio Gainax, the show centers around the titular character Medaka Kurokami, a high school student who is elected as the Student Council President of Hakoniwa Academy. Alongside her three council members, Zenkichi Hitoyoshi, Kouki Akune, and Mogana Kikaijima, Medaka resolves various problems around the school and helps the student body.

The main character Medaka is voiced by Monica Rial, who gives the character a strong, confident voice. Medaka is intelligent, athletic, and always willing to help others. She is seen as a bit of a "superwoman" figure, excelling at every task thrown her way. However, she also has a compassionate side that often manifests in her desire to help others, and to understand what makes them tick. Her council members are voiced by David Matranga (Zenkichi), Greg Ayres (Kouki), and Shelley Calene-Black (Mogana).

The show is set in the fictional Hakoniwa Academy, which is split into two main sections: the general education wing, and the special abilities wing. The latter is where students with supernatural powers are sent, making it somewhat of a secret within the school. The council's main goal is to create a better school environment, and to help those students who are struggling. This often involves entering the special abilities wing and changing the rules in order to improve things.

One of the key themes of the show is the idea of change. Medaka has a firm belief that anyone can change, no matter how deeply ingrained their negative traits may be. In this sense, the show has a strong message of hope and optimism. Medaka's desire to help others is infectious, and her council members are often swayed by her unwavering belief in the power of self-improvement.

The animation in the show is bright and colorful, with a lot of action-oriented scenes. The characters are all well-designed, with distinct personalities and interesting abilities. The show also has a good sense of humor, with plenty of comedic moments throughout. However, it is not afraid to tackle serious issues, such as bullying and trauma. This creates a well-rounded show that can be both enjoyable and thought-provoking.

One notable aspect of Medaka Box is the use of "flask plans". These are special requests that students can submit to the council, asking for their assistance in solving a particular problem. The council then creates a plan to help the student, often involving a variety of different methods. This keeps the show fresh and unpredictable, as the council is constantly faced with new challenges.

Overall, Medaka Box is a fun and engaging anime series that combines action, humor, and drama. The characters are likable and well-developed, and the animation is top-notch. The show's positive message of self-improvement and the power of change is particularly noteworthy, making it an inspiring watch for those who could use a bit of inspiration in their own lives.

Medaka Box is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (31 episodes). The series first aired on May 12, 2012.
