Asuna, pwning vampires with shoes since 2007.

Negima?!

Whoops, my hand slipped.(PWNED!)

Oh man, this episode really makes me realise the appropriateness of the “*Negima?!*” title, mostly the ‘?!’ part.

Ups:

* Asuna, pwning Eva with shoes and boats.
* Fucking. Awesome. Magical fights.
* Secchan.

Downs:

* Eva arc finished so fast?
* Asuna’s mahou shoujo transformation (please go Nanoha style for the rest of the series.)
* Negi never showing off his magical battle powers. Seriously. Eva was finally pwned by Kamo-kun, like.. “LAWL”.
* 4:3 raws.

Well, it seems that SHAFT is wrapping up the Eva Arc fast so they can go in to the thick of the action, which is the Kyoto Arc, that I heard XEBEC butchered and which I luckily never watched so that I will be traumatized. Waiting for 16:9 to come out and rewatch. Asuna pwning Eva was damn awesome.

    Is it me, or that shoe laces are tied unusually.

    @Brian Not really, it’s a trend to tie from top to bottom.

    What exactly is Nanoha style transformation? Exploding underwear?

    Nanoha-style transformations means ‘starts elaborate and fanservicey, and by the time the main plot kicks in it happens offscreen or they just glow for a second and they’re armored up.’

    buchered would be an understatement… XEBEC crammed a 2 book+ arc into 2 episodes…witout even a change of clothes for the chars!

    Yeah, part of the annoying things I never liked about mahou shoujo are the fanservicey henshin sequences, which waste time and are just a polite exucse to reuse frames.

    Nanoha had only like 5-6 full henshin sequences in both seasons, which was why I liked it. The rest of the time, the henshin was skipped, which should be the case when the enemy is god damned literally in front of you. I guess I will never appreciate the concept of spending 5 minutes to change clothes and chant some “nice” words.

    @Aesir: I gave up on XEBEC’s Negima a long long time ago. To me and a lot of fans, that abomination is already entombed in the annals of _kuro-rekishi_

    There was only one good ep in there – Ep 19, which gave Sayo some development… explaining why she was there in the first place. Outside of that… utter garbage.

    They can only go up from there… which is why I’m looking at Negima?! with a bit of hope, but much caution.
