I wrote about this before but I am not sure if Medaka box is a I can definitely see that relationship, and I think it's accurate actually, but from a narrative . Zenkichi is the protagonist of the manga IRL, but Medaka is the main. Read The Student Council's Relationship [Izuku x Medaka] (Medaka Box) from the story I'm Zenkichi Hitoyoshi Gen Affairs Manager of Hakinowa Academy. A listing of characters in Medaka Box. You may wish to go get a drink, as due to the infamous Genre Shift, there are effectively three casts — the original cast of.
After Medaka loses the election, she changes to a long-sleeved version of the standard women's uniform of Hakoniwa Academy, and gives up her armband.
At the start of the third semester, Medaka has Zenkichi cut her hair at shoulder-length, and puts the rest in a small ponytail. She now wears an open, light yellow jacket and a dark red shirt which shows her stomach.
She also wears jeans and detached sleeves that match her shirt. After withdrawing from Hakoniwa Academy, Medaka changes back to the standard women's uniform. After taking over as the academy chairwoman, Medaka wears a dark vest with the academy insignia over a long-sleeved collared shirt. She ceases to tie up her hair and dons a small pair of glasses.
Ten years later, Medaka wears a white suit with six buttons down the front. The suit has a dark section at the center and at the cuffs. She has regrown her hair, and her breasts have gotten bigger. At age one, Medaka wore a light green dress with white wristbands. She had short hair that only reached her ears. At age two, Medaka wore a pink dress with a red ribbon at the collar. A few years later, she wore a pink, long-sleeved dress with a red collar, along with black socks and brown shoes.
When she was a middle school student, Medaka wore the uniform of Hakobune Middle School. She initially had her hair done in two ponytails, though later changed to one single ponytail. When she entered Hakoniwa Academy, Medaka wore the standard women's uniform of Hakoniwa Academy, with her hair in two ponytails once again. History Medaka meets Zenkichi. Medaka's biological mother died from a heart attack immediately after childbirth; members of the Kurokami Group coldly said Hato existed only to give birth to Medaka.
Because of her abnormal abilities, she quickly matured, and soon was surpassing even adults in all fields. While her growth was initially viewed as fascinating, many professors would retire after seeing their lifelong efforts easily outdone by a little girl, and gradually started viewing her as unsettling instead. Because of this, Medaka began to wonder why she was even born.
At the age of two, Medaka was sent to Hakoniwa General Hospitalwhich studied atypical children; it was a starting point for the Flask Plan. While waiting to get checked, Medaka ended up sitting beside a four-year-old Misogi Kumagawa. He was sorely unimpressed by what was going on, telling Medaka that people are born for no reason.

As he was called in, Kumagawa left Medaka with the parting words that there was no point in being alive. These words left a strong impact on Medaka, and she lost interest in the world.
Eventually, she grew bored with the constant examinations and tried to escape. Hiding from the hospital staff, she made her way into a nursery room for children of the doctors on call. Inside, she found only one other child, a two-year-old Zenkichi struggling with a toy puzzle. Not knowing how else to introduce herself, Medaka took the toy away from him and easily solved it herself. An impressed Zenkichi asked her to solve the rest of the puzzles in the room, which she accomplished without trouble, much to Zenkichi's delight.
Medaka brushed him off, insisting that life has no meaning. When Zenkichi refuted her, she asked him for what reason she was born. He then pointed out how happy she had made him, and told her: Medaka was in fact so smitten with Zenkichi for saving her, that she immediately asked him to marry her, though he shot her down just as quickly, a rejection she took quite hard. This was her first and last rejection. Subsequently, Medaka took Zenkichi hostage in the hospital nursery so that she could play with him.
Hitomi tried to talk Medaka out of the "hostage" situation, but Medaka held her off with the promise of violence. For half a day, Medaka and Zenkichi played, but Zenkichi soon fell ill to high fever from exhaustion.
At his bedside, Medaka tearfully apologized for forcing Zenkichi to go beyond his limits; even though she felt that their friendship was fate, still no one could keep up with her.
Zenkichi took her hands and told her to stop crying. With a cheery smile, Zenkichi promised to catch up to Medaka even if they became separated or lost. Since then Medaka, believed there was no one special in the world, Zenkichi included, but that he was someone who stood beside her.
In her first year of primary school, Medaka was commissioned with looking after the class pet. However, neither rabbits nor carp would come near her. During the class trip to the zoo, not even the scariest animal would show itself in front of Medaka, all scared off by her overwhelming force of will.
Medaka looked up to her sister for her stoicism, and would console her after her rages. Medaka ignored the beatings and continued with her school life as usual. It was at this time that Medaka finally attacked, not Akune but her childhood friend, admonishing him for trying to bully someone weaker than him, as well as telling him to switch back to his old hair-style.
She also told Akune that she would continue to take his beatings until he regained the heart of a good person. Though he refuted her analysis, this lead to Akune pledging himself to Medaka, and this event became the precursor to Medaka's confrontation with Kumagawa. The situation with Kumagawa came to a head when he viciously attacked another friend of Medaka's, Najimi Ajimu. It should be noted that Medaka states that she is not exposing her cleavage; she is covering everything else up.
Shiranui implies that Medaka is being jealous of her when she tries to keep her and Zenkichi from working together early on, but in truth she just doesn't like Shiranui. On other occasions, such as with Emukae, she laughs it off.
It starts with directly asking a suspected robber about the crime and believing that a dog outfit will let her approach a lost dog without scaring it off. It's around the point when she tests her successors in a Playboy Bunny outfit with an absurdly expensive, absurdly designed video game that they wonder what an ordeal Zenkcihi must have suffered being around her for 13 years.
Both very early on in the series before she meets anyone at her level, and later in the series after she's overcome all her rivals. Culminating in an arc which consists of her beating up every single character in the series except Ajimu, who was " dead " off-panel, a few at a time.
She seems to have assigned herself this role toward Kamome, even insisting he refer to her as his sister. Custom Uniform of Sexy: In no way, form or context could her school uniform be considered within school regulations. She wears an extremely short skirt on her custom uniform, though it's not acknowledged as often as her other uniform infraction.
Medaka actually can't befriend people without somehow defeating and "fixing" them first. Zenkichi, the only person who she befriendly normally, eventually comes to the conclusion that he needs to actively oppose her if he still wants to be of any interest to her. Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: When she was a child, she wondered why someone so incredibly skilled and intelligent was born and came to believe her life was meaningless.
Zenkichi was the one who gave her a purpose by telling her she must have been born to make people happy. This is played with every which way before being finally deconstructed twice over during the course of the series.
Every time, Zenkichi was instrumental in showing Medaka a purpose she would follow. Broken bones, ripped tendons, perforated lungs, losing pint after pint of blood and even being forced to see the world as Kumagawa does completely fail to phase her.
Did something to the moon that caused both she and it to disappear. Zenkichi has devoted his life to being by Medaka's side and protecting her ever since he can remember. In her Hybrid God Mode, the left side of Medaka's hair and her left eye turn black, while the right side of her hair and her right eye become white. Zenkichi states rather flatly that her kissing Kikaijima meant nothing. After all, Medaka was kissing everybody in her class years back until Zenkichi made her stop.
Medaka has a unique variant- the Kurokami Phantom. First, she must shed her footwear ; she needs to go barefoot to make her footsteps perfectly nimble and unfettered. Next, she leaps up and down in a hypnotic series of bounces until the sound of her jumping is out of sync with her visible movements.
Then, she sprawls down and blitzes her opponent with a devastating sonic strike that tears apart everything in the vicinity. Unfortunately, this attack is so brazen, Medaka's body also takes a beating. Since Zenkichi told her he believed she was born to make people happy when she was two years old, Medaka has dedicated her life to make everyone happy.
Due to her being brainwashed, this was later amended to allow for her own happiness, not just the ones she wanted to help.
There is a lot of this in just the first episode. Granted that it is Gainax though. She has the workaholic tendencies of her mother as well as the expectancy of others to follow her example and her father's extravagant and 'larger-than-life' personality and overflowing love.
This was intentionally set up by Professor Fukurou, who wanted a more sociable version of his older sister. Becomes much more energetic and friendly after losing her position to Zenkichi and becoming a "normal" student. When she was a middle school student, she had her hair done in two pigtails. Frequently delivers tackling hugs to Zenkichi.
All Abnormals heal quickly and Medaka does so quickly enough to heal broken bones simply by walking around for an hour or so. After seeing Koga's restructured body she begins healing even faster.
In Chapter 36, after Munakata apparently kills Zenkichi by turning him into a Human Pincushionshe can do little else than drop to her knees in disbelief before bawling her eyes out.
She also completely breaks down in Chapterwhen Zenkichi not only defeats her in the presidential election, he crushes her. She had devoted herself to helping others and lacks the social awareness to see that people wanted her to be happy herself for a change. The story focuses on her following her declared purpose of helping those around her with any trouble they may have.
As an All-Loving Heroshe often resolves to reform people at all costs. In the Flask Plan Arc, she continues to trust her older sister Kujira despite the latter having no memory and consequently, no attachment of her, and having already proving herself untrustworthy.
In the Kumagawa Incident Arc, the Student Council actually wins by the second match, but Medaka doesn't feel right letting Kumagawa leave without helping him. She also lets him hit her with Book Maker, bringing her down to his level just because he requested it. In the Jet Black Bride Arc, she insists on playing by Momo Momozono's terms to save Zenkichi, who she just agreed to marry despite Ajimu offering to easily solve the situation, and the risk of having to gouge out her own eyes if she loses.
Learned after the fight against Munakata, even when she didn't face him. In the fight against Kumugawa, Medaka asks him what the problem is with not wanting to lose. In chaptershe chews Zenkichi out for not wanting to lose. In chapterMedaka exclaims that she thinks no one in the world should have everything go the way they want it to, and Zenkichi rightly points out that, out of anyone, she has the least right to say that. She has one despite being extremely intelligent, but usually she does behave like an idiot.
Medaka is not exactly stupid, but her behavior frequently is. She's so smart she passes right back into stupid. For an example, early in the series when Medaka first starts fighting dangerous foes, she lets them get free shots on her. Her idealism leads her to believe that since her foes have no reason to attack her, she has no reason to dodge.
She lets her unwillingness to fight result in injury from people actively trying to kill her, because she is unwilling to believe that her enemies have a reason to fight her, and therefore ignores the fact that they are actively doing it.
She was also so overly trusting that she couldn't see through obvious deception, which gets her captured and brainwashed during the Flask Plan arc. I Just Want to Have Friends: She needs people in order to be somebody. Without people she is only stats and abilities, very similar to her step-brother Tsurubami, a thing of enormous power, but without purpose, happiness, or orientation.
After picking up Unzen's Abnormal ability to calculate trajectories she can launch hundreds of superballs at her opponent. We don't see her master it to the same level Unzen did, however, though she probably did eventually. She's essentially unbeatable in a fight and never fails at anything important. When the metafiction comes into play, this starts getting played with a lot. She moved an entire building in her fight against Unzen, stating that as Student Council President it was within her rights to move buildings if she deemed it necessary.
How she sees her relationship with Zenkichi since she proposed to him when they first met, but he rejected her they were two-year-olds, so he didn't take it seriously and forgot the whole thing and she assumes the status never changed. After the Student Presidential Election she does give him a much more pointed hint. Knight in Sour Armour: She has stated that she doesn't remotely believe in the absurd notion that all humans are inherently goodbut she does like and believe that she can redeem most people.
Her fundamental personality is most similar to Tsurubami of all other characters, except switching introversion for extroversion. Her Fatal Flawbelieve it or not, because as much as she wants to be The Hero and The Paragonshe does it out of a sense of duty because her being The Ace makes her unable to understand a lot of people hence why she's not good with art or music - they're contingent on expression.
She particularly struggles to understand how it feels to grapple with failure, such as leading a remedial course focused entirely on improving handwriting because she can't comprehend the idea of actually not knowing the answers. Hell, she can't befriend anybody unless she beats them in a fight, so she treats her enemies as friends and her allies as more or less appendages best seen with Zenkichi.
This takes a pretty depressing tone once we learn about her goal in life. In the end, however, she gets better by the epilogue. She is prone to dramatic speeches peppered with over-the-top poses some of which come from other serieslike The Ginyu Force.
The End has been shown to have two significant flaws. First, there are abilities she simply should not perfect. It is implied that if she perfected Munakata Kei's bloodlust Abnormality she would simply feel an even greater urge to kill than he does rather than be able to turn it off.
Similarly, a Minus that gets stronger often becomes less controllable, such as Emukae's. Second, due to perfecting things without the need to work at them her self expression is atrocious. Thus, when she plays music she actually ends up quite boring. This makes it impossible for her to copy a Style. Lonely at the Top: During her childhood, she did things so effortlessly that she couldn't make any friends.
Losing a Shoe in the Struggle: Kurokami Phantom is this by default, which requires Medaka to be barefoot, so she's forced to slip off her shoes and stockings in the middle of battle. There's also the time Medaka tried to repeatedly kick Tsurubami in the face and he ends up eating shoe.
When she pries herself loose, her shoes pop off and remain stuck in his mouth. Doesn't bother her, much though, as she actually likes fighting with her shoes off. She even teases him that he must really like shoes to hold onto them like that, and Tsurubami admits he was fascinated with schoolgirls' indoor shoes growing up.
She gets a lot of reaction shots that show off her figure as much as possible. Master of the Mixed Message: Characters find it really difficult to know when Medaka has serious feelings for someone since she will kiss and hug everyone without meaning a thing.
Master of Your Domain: She has the capacity to control her body's functions.
Class 13 / Others
This climaxes in turning her body into one big heart after her actual heart stops beating. She briefly wore the costume in an omake and everyone agreed that she cannot pull the look off at all.
She's much too arrogant. She wore the outfit again in the Successor arc while cleaning the clock tower, whereupon she fights Kamome and the outfit undergoes severe Clothing Damage by the time she comes out on top. Called out by Unzen of all people. She disagrees with his premises, but later she admits that she's wrong when called out by Koga regarding Kumagawa. When she's charged with stopping the moon from crashing down on Earth in a manner that would likely kill her, she finds herself trembling as she waits for her time to act.
Iihiko's "echo" comforts her. A Mother to Her Men:
