|Reviews for Zenkichi's Decision|
| PowerPlayer 4/20/13 . chapter 5
Interesting story so far. I've read Medaka Box, and Medaka just seems to be the ultimate OP Mary-Sue. Rich, beautiful, perfect- I know she has her hardships but she is just so annoying with how nothing ever really fazes her, not since Kumagawa (I may be innacurate, it's been a while since I last read it)- and I want to see her deal with someone who could actually make er hurt on the inside. Someone who could actually make Medaka reconsider her choices. Where she actually feels like she loses.
I really hope you continue this. Sincerely
-Your newest fan PowerPlayer

I gotta say, I wasn't really sure what to expect when I started reading this but it's pretty good. I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens next, what Zenkichi's Minus can do and how it will compare to his Zero "Devil Style".
On a different note I'm gonna ask a question I'm guessing you might have heard before (at least I hear it every time I post a chapter/story or remove a dead story): Have you decided on which girl (or girls) Zenkichi will be paired with? If no, are you taking suggestions?
Anyway, I'm hoping to see more of this story. Keep it up.

I didn't like the direction the manga went in regarding Medaka vs Zenkichi, can't wit for more.

i like your style and the fact the you make the morphed role of zenkichi something else add up, im a lover of secondary character but o lve them more when for some reason they become a primal character, becouse they have to grow stronger and have a more developed history, more that that is better ih they have to go against the person they loved, i aploud your fic and the plot you use, i will be following you and hope you can update soon, becouse this surely catch the eye, soo take care good luck and will be seing each other in the next chapter, if you are planing on updating this.

This seems to be what I really wanted all along. Zenikichi should not be head over heels for Medaka in the first place. Go oN!

Interesting story so far, I look forward to the next chapter.

I think I started getting bored of this manga after they started making kumagawa and a few other people I don't care about more prominent while neglecting the main characters. I sort of skipped all of the chapters from the point where Zenkichi realizes his feelings for Medaka and then I picked up again 2 weeks ago. Everything managed to turn out quite well so I feel like my 3 month hiatus was quite appropriate haha

Medaka's taking this seriously. Now Zen's minus has got to be something really game-breaking to even survive this encounter. I really can't think of anything that will let him win other than a Marble Phantasm. If you don't know what that is, look it up in Type-Moon Wikia.

Well this is certainly a little bit better. I wish I knew what you planned to make Zenkichi's skill into. Is this your idea for Devil Style? I'm planning my own Medaka Box story and I'm fishing for ideas here XD.
| Nasha Rei-Kun 2/26/12 . chapter 4
On with the show misconceptions of others personalities all around. I pretty sure that this is going to set Medaka on a war path toward Zenkichi and I can't wait for the collision but before that we need more character building, skill explanations and fluff. Lots and lots of fluff, so onward my knight into the battle writership.

interesting, very interesting...I wonder how this will turn out now...

Well, having put this off for as long as I have, I thought that it was high time I reviewed this. In this review I'll touch on your writing, this current chapter, and my views of the story as a whole. Note that this isn't flaming you. I'm just trying to help.
Ok, so honestly your writing style isn't all that bad. I've read much worse on this site. I will say that you are a bit more wordy than you need to be and it causes me to see some of your characters as out of character, but I'll touch on that more later. I also think that you need to show and not tell. Whenever possible, show and action, don't tell us about it.
Now onto this chapter, I think you kind of jumped the shark here. Before, I could somewhat agree that what you were doing was plausible, if perhaps more in line with a wish fulfillment fic than anything else. Now though, the characters int this chapter seemed out of character. This especially applies to Medaka because, while she doesn't have too much character in the manga, she at least wouldn't act the way she did in this chapter normally. While Medaka did hurt Zenkichi, she did it more to help him grow and to understand him than anything else. Remember, Medaka can really only understand people when she fights them, so I see her actions in the latest arc as an attempt to goad Zenkichi into a fight with her to make him grow and to allow her to finally understand him.
Of course, the whole 'mental adjustment' line makes me think that there is something else going on here but I can only review on what is there.
Now, on the subject of the story as a whole, I have a few more problems. My main problem with this fic is that the idea of 'Zenkichi becomes a Minus to beat Medaka' doesn't make much sense. For one, Zenkichi already saw with Kumagawa that a Minus can't beat Medaka. Kumagawa was the poster-child for Minuses and he could never beat her. He would know that it would be useless to try that route. Another thing is that at the point in which you start this story, Zenkichi has already told Anshin'in what he wants his skill to be. Why suddenly change it to a Minus when he knows of a skill that will beat her? Why act like this is when he chose his new power when chronologically that happened before the start of your story?
Finally I think you are mistaken in what it takes to beat Medaka. I can understand that as a form of wish fulfillment, this story allows you to see Zenkichi rise up and beat Medaka, but what, you're just going to have him beat her up? This is covered in the chapter that Zenkichi decides that he loves Medaka. He knows that he could beat Medaka in a fight if he wanted to but that really wouldn't be beating her. Sure he would hurt her but it would serve no purpose. The only way to beat someone is to make them feel like they've been beaten and the way you do that is by beating them at their own game. That is why he does what he does in the manga. Medaka's real power is her ability to beat people at their own game, and so to truly defeat her, you have to get her over to your way of thinking. That is what Zenkichi wants to do by making her fall in love with him.
Honestly I like the fact that you are writing a Zenkichi story but this whole plot seems out of character. I don't know what Zenkichi's new skill is going to be but I feel that it will fit a lot better with his personality than a Minus.

Nice job sir on making a good story
| Fangking2 2/19/12 . chapter 3
I think you brought out the bitchness rather well, but don't forget she is not doing this to Zan-chan because she is a bitch, but her mind set is distorted compare to all of us. You need to mention her view and her distortion more.
