Series Summary from MangaUpdates:
Kurokami Medaka, the strongest girl in Hanokiwa Academy, leads 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, Akune, and Kikaijima, Medaka takes on the challenges in the school that range from mundane tasks to supernatural battles. 
Kenn's Comment: I more or less stopped reading the manga the moment it became a super power battle manga. I rather enjoyed the 'mundane tasks' that Medaka did so effortlessly, but that's just me. Clearly, it's been enjoying a fair amount of popularity with it's battle, so I won't harp on that too much. I hope that GAINAX does something to kind of...pad the long battles. By that I mean, fillers. Yes, the hated and dreaded fillers. However, as the story right now goes with Medaka Box, you started out with usual student council duties, but as you go on, you really lose that part of the story, resulting in battle after battle of super powers. The most you'd get is perhaps Medaka mentionning that it's her duty as president to lead students in the right direction or something, but even that in itself is pretty much ignoring the original story. I don't know...an episode or two in between major arcs can't possibly screw things up too much...can it?

Anywho, I'll probably watch this one because GAINAX is behind it (and it's penned by NisiOisiN, who's also behind Zaregoto and the Monogatari series).
