Description: Kurokami Medaka, a first year, is elected as Student Council President, and the first thing she does is establish a suggestion box, later dubbed by students the “Medaka Box”. Medaka encourages students to submit any problem to the box without hesitation and promises to take on any issue from anyone.

Since Medaka won the Student Council elections with a staggering 98% of the vote, she ends up as the Council’s only member. She asks her childhood friend, Hitoyoshi Zenkichi, for help and he grudgingly agrees, becoming the Student Council’s lowest ranking member. Soon Medaka recruits two more people to the Student Council, the former judo club member Akune Kouki as secretary and the current swim club member Kikaijima Mogana, on loan for 300 yen a day, as treasurer.

Now the Student Council members spend their days solving the problems submitted through the Medaka Box, whether they be hooligans in clubs where they don’t belong, girls who need help writing love letters or people who’ve lost their pets, gradually earning the respect and admiration of the entire school.

That's a pretty crappy image of Medaka. Why not use one that is actually done by the manga artist...

Anyway I hope they won't mess it up like the Bakuman adaptation.

I got those pictures from Imouto and Konachan sites. What pictures you have?

I have none. What I meant was to use pictures done by Akatsuki Akira, the style in your spoilers, not some fan-made ones (or at least fan-made ones that try to imitat Akatsuki's style). Akatsuki's style is awesome in the manga.

might give the manga a shot, also since its by Nisio Isin who is responsible for the gatari series I'm not expecting it to be that bad

I thought this was going to be overloaded with fan service, which is what I was expecting.
What a let down, this is rare.

Agreed and agreed.

Seriously, what Japanese school would even have uniforms like that? I mean, its not like some fictional magical or military school where they can take a bit of a creative license and get away with that.

And a student council or club that takes on people's problems sure isn't a new concept, but certainly isn't a bad one.

But it is ecchi, comedy, romance, and school life so I will probably end up watching it. ::)

Though this is seriously lacking in ecchi and comedy, or I just don't find the comedy good enough.

Character overusing breaking the 4th wall is a huge turn off for me in the manga

This one is quite nice, and i happy with low amount fan service.
It reminds me Baka to test, just characters are not stupid.
edit:
well its more like Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi. This means you shouldn't expect much echii or comedy.

Actually I might follow this, looks nice.

I'm seeing small comedy here and there, some echii is well placed, and I can see a possible romance plot.

On second thought, based on everything I have heard about this show and based on my my own reservations, I think I'm going to completely pass on this anime.

Gave up on the manga at some point when it went whole ballistic with the

I've liked everything that got translated from NisiOisiN up until now (Monogatari series, Katanagatari, Zaregoto) but this is seriously one of his weaker stuff. Still the manga has lot of popularity so I'm watching the series to accertain to myself if I just "didn't get it' or that I just don't like it
