Negima! 219 – Negi is now officially GAR.

Negima!

Fucking hell yeah! Negi gains +50 GAR points this chapter, with his “fight first, talk later” rules of engagement he has now adopted. No more bullshit. No more delaying talk. No more lame attempts at persuasion. “Peace through Power!”… fuck, yeah.

Negima!

“Ownage!”

Negima!

“UNSTOPPABLE!!”

Negima!

“DOUBLE KILL!!!

Negima!

“M-M-M-MONSTER KILL!!!!” (literally!)

Negima!

“KILLING SPREE!!!”

Negima!

“RAMPAGE!!”

Negima!

“DOMINATING!!!”

Negima!

“UNSTOPPABLE!!!”

Negima!

“GODLIKE!!!”

Please forgive my urge to give each of the pictures an Unreal Tournament caption. I know it’s a bit lame, I just couldn’t resist it….

Seriously, the power of Evangeline’s Magia Erebea is truly awesome and I like the basis of the ability to “absorb” the attack spell cast by the user to himself in return for extra physical abilities. This, I think, would really fit a whole lot more to Negi with his Chinese martial arts skills, rather than the external casting that Negi was using earlier in the series. Even more so, Magia Erebea seems to allow the user to close in to their enemy and launch the spell at point-blank range, which basically almost means a sure-kill if used properly. Hell, I think even a normal Sagitta Magica would be quite damaging, of course, after a long practice at it.

Man, I’m starting to really respect Evangeline more and more, and even more so towards Akamatsu-sensei. Seriously, Negima’s action scenes are like 10x more awesome than most shounen series lately.

On a side note, I’ve seen some screens of the Ala Alba OVA, and surprisingly, I saw Chao’s arc animated, albeit only the final showdown between her and Negi. Now I’m kinda interested in watching it, mostly because the battle scenes look pretty faithful to the manga one.

    Poor Chiko-tan…

    However, as expected, there’s a toll to pay…

    Screw all the current shounen titles, this stuff needs to be animated. lol Not only would we get cute kick-butt girls, but great action scenes with Negi.

    …I’m pretty much left with the conclusion that Nagi only survived his little tiff with Eva because she had the hots for him now.

    I find it funny that Magia Erebea didn’t actually give Negi the expected ‘dark techniques’ that I thought it would. Apparently, it’s power is to absorb offensive magic and turn it into supplemental magic.
    I find it funny that he still uses light based moves like thunder and lightning. Those thunder spears are wicked looking. Why didn’t he pull those out way back when?

    Apparently he can not only jack himself up with offensive magics, but he can also suck them up and release them later without having to delay or reincant them. That could be pretty useful right there.

    I do believe there was another protagonist with a similar magic eating= pwn power.

    Seriously… Negi is getting way too GAR for his age, now I’m officially fallen for him. And I thought I’m not GAY~!!!

    that’s why such characters are called GAR

    remember.. you’re GAR for manly men like Archer and Negi
    You’re GAY for feminine men and traps like Bridget
