The production company Media Factory began streaming a 107-second promotional video for the television anime adaptation of the Medaka Box school action comedy manga manga by NisiOisin (Bakemonogatari) and Akira Akatsuki. The ad features the television edit of the opening theme song "Happy Crazy Box" by Minami Kuribayashi.
The story follows Medaka (voiced by Aki Toyosaki), the strongest girl in Hakoniwa Academy and head of the school's student council. The student body can submit pleas for help, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, into the suggestion box that Medaka installed. Together with council members Zenkichi (Yuuki Ono), Akune, Kikaijima (Ai Kayano), she takes on the challenges in the school that include supernatural powers and near-constant battles.
Gainax is producing the adaptation while Shouji Saeki (Mahoromatic: Summer Special, This Ugly Yet Beautiful World, He Is My Master) is directing and editing the series scripts and Ikuo Kuwana (Street Fighter Alpha: Generations) is designing the characters. NisiOisin and Akira Akatsuki launched the original manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2009, and Shueisha released the 14th compiled book volume on March 2.
The anime will premiere in Japan on Wednesday.
