Last Updated: Jan 29, 2019
Kurokami Medaka is an exceptional first year student at Hanokiwa Academy who got elected as president of the student council with a smashing 98% of the votes. Extremely intelligent, strong, and rich; she wants to help anyone in need. To do that, she introduces a suggestion box that allows any student to contact her. Later known as the Medaka Box, it will bring forth incredible challenges to Kurokami and her friends of the student council.
#1 - Controlling the Student Council!
Season 1 - Episode 1
Kurokami Medaka is perfect in anything she tries to do – be it sports, exams or anything else. When she ran for Student Council President, she managed to gain 98% of the votes, promising to solve everyone’s problems, 24/7, through the suggestion box that she implemented. Because no-one can match her standards, Medaka runs a one-man Student Council, and so she asks her childhood friend Hitoyoshi Zenkichi to join her, but he isn’t interested. To change his mind, Medaka brings Zenkichi along when solving her first request – to deal with the third-years that have taken over the kendo hall.

A second-year, Ariake-senpai requests the Student Council’s aid for solving the problem of a threat she found in her sports locker along with a ruined set of spikes.

After being outrun by Medaka, Isahaya-senpai denies having touched Ariake’s spikes or making the note, but Medaka believes her immediately, dropping the matter. Feeling guilty, Isahaya takes Ariake’s trainers and replaces them with a brand-new set of spikes and an apology note. When Zenkichi is asked to complete a request to find a lost puppy, he miserably fails after finding out the puppy had grown into a much bigger dog. Medaka helps him out, only for Shiranui to find out that while Medaka loves animals, animals don’t love her for some reason, with the dog fleeing from her and hiding behind Zenkichi.

After Onigase calls out Zenkichi and Akune on their uniforms, she turns to Kikaijima. While Kikaijima initially denies having made an alterations to her uniform, Onigase successfully reveals that she has been wearing her swimsuit beneath her uniform.
