Negima 150 – Negi dies?!

Negima

Well… that is a good way of resolving things.

OK, nah, just kidding. Who’d like to see our _favourite_ tragic-past, shouta harem master die so fast? Of course, no one right… right?! Anyways, I was going to give up hope on new releases but I’ll forgive them thanks to that.

Negima

Eva with her powers back… oh how I await the next chapters….

Saber Asuna and Secchan lead the defense.

    Uh…Motoko? 3rd pic, bottom left. Sorry if I’m wrong, I haven’t read very much of the manga…^_^;

    But srsly, this is making my brain explode. If you’ll excuse me…I’m off to start reading the manga so I don’t fall even more behind.

    Nah, that’s Akira.
    Though she clearly looks very similar to Motoko.

    … Negima’s starting to make my brain hurt. Especially since we’ve gone from a harem-comedy to something more akin to a cross between Gundam and … well, I’m not sure what the latter is, but it’s been getting less and less interesting, post-tournament, especially with Chao’s plan.

    I used to follow this on a regular basis – now I can’t be bothered.

    Vector Traps… I was thinking more along the lines of DRAGOONs, but given Chao’s l33t h@x teleportation skills, it might be because of that reference…

    Pretty sure it’s not hax teleportation but just time abuse, ie stop time for everyone but herself (or displace herself out of time), move a bit, time restarts and she appears to have teleported.. since we’re led to believe she has no magical powers and her time travel tools are science based (though powered through the world tree)

    >>but it’s been getting less and less interesting, post-tournament, especially with Chao’s plan.

    Oh well, yes it is definitely on the less interesting part now, especially after the high of the tournament.

    Well, it is Akamatsu’s style anyways, if you’ve been following Negima for a long time, you’ll notice he tends to have a certain period of “calm” for character development and such which always leads up to a “storm” of mind-bending and awe-inspiring action.

    I personally don’t mind, since Akamatsu’s art style is that awesome. He is just simply following the normal structures of story-telling, only doing it damn well, without wasting chapters. I have never personally felt any of the chapters were real fillers as either they focused on some of the other lesser prominent classmates or revealed some bits or hints of the major characters or a background of the world of Negima.

    @willowywicca: I think that is the most plausible explanation of Chao’s abilities. The workings of Chao’s “Vector Traps” based on Negi’s battle with Chao are quite nicely explained with your theory.

    This isn’t calm and character development – this feels more like they’re tacking on conflict for the sake of it, rather than because it plays a part in developing the characters. Yes, it’s led to pactios and the formation of Negi’s combat team, but it’s… well, there were other ways to do this, than to bring up the ‘nemesis is in his classroom’ thing again, which we already saw with Evangeline.

    If that picture where Chisame is about to stab Negi is true, then the title of the series becomes “Higurashi no Negi Koro ni”. :P
