Negima! 220


Well, this chapter pretty much confirms all the hints about Asuna’s past that have been thrown about, although many details still remain to be revealed. I’m just glad we got a nice insight in to Asuna’s origins and her past with the Ala Rubra.

Based on this though, it seems that Asuna will be a prime target for the “enemies” that the Ala Rubra were fighting, considering her natural abilities, so it’s pretty lucky Asuna’s gotten some training from Evangeline. Of course, there’s also Negi’s Magia Erebea. I wonder where he is now on Rakan’s power chart after the upgrade.

Not forgetting the fanservice though. Knight Yue is LOL.


Anyways, next week, Akamatsu takes another “material-gathering” break. I bet Kanon’s got a photoshoot or smth, LOL.

    Hmmm, I do kind of worry about the possibility of Akamatsu writing Yue out of the series following this arc – can you really see her wanting to go from being fairly awesome to her life as a thoroughly mediocre student? I can’t help but think it’d be out of character for her…

    I’ve lost track; are all the Mahora/Negi Club people at Ostia now, or are we still missing some others?

    IIRC Anya is still missing. I think the rest are accounted for, though.

    yep. Anya is still mia. I’m expecting some kind of huge come out of nowhere moment with her since she hasn’t been seen whatsoever since this arc began.

    Shouldn’t they be able to fix that with… magic?

    Asuna was never in their plans in the first place. Unless Fate doesn’t completely know the plan. Although, now that Asuna’s there, they’ll probably end up trying to use her.

    @shadowlancer: That explains Asuna’s interest in older men. xD
