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 into the suggestion box that Medaka installed. Together with council members Zenkichi (Yuuki Ono), Akune (Daisuke Namikawa), and Kikaijima (Ai Kayano), she takes on the challenges in the school that include supernatural powers and near-constant battles.
The second anime season will premiere in Japan on October 10. The first 12-episode anime season aired from April to June, and Crunchyroll streamed the season into several countries as it aired. Sentai Filmworks will release the season on home video in North America.
