Negima! 252


Yes, it’s the much awaited Secchan x Konoka chapter that KonoSetsu fans have been waiting for.


Ahahah~ Secchan’s insecurities about herself can be pretty nice comic relief at times.


Meanwhile, on Negi’s side, they have to deal with that slimeball character that is the Governor-General of Ostia.


… and he somewhat confirms a fact that nearly everyone reading the series has been speculating about. So my guess about Asuna being either Negi’s mother or aunt is pretty much true now. Looks like Negi will have to call Asuna “obaa-san” now, ROFL ROFL ROFL.

But wow, Arika was known as the “Queen of Calamity”? No wonder the Ala-Rubra people kept their mouths shut.


Back to KonoSetsu… Secchan is still being troubled by her insecurities…. but uh-oh… Konoka’s in trouble.


…but no worries, Secchan is on the case!


And finally the climax of the chapter, the Pactio between Konoka and Setsuna.


Man… that was a really long kiss. These two really need to get a room. But now we have a new Pactio card and it’s surprisingly not from Negi.

It’s being speculated that the Artifact might be different, but since Albireo has once mentioned that a person’s Artifact remains the same no matter the Magister, we’ll see if Secchan will keep her Shishikuro with her new Pactio or have another new one. Even the art on the card is different so there is a real possibility we might see a new Artifact.

    Well the pactio between Setsuna and Konoka wasn’t really a surprise for me, they had planned on doing it before and were about to…until Asuna interrupted it.

    If Asuna really does turn out to be a relative of Negi at least that is one less candidate to be with Negi (that is totally assuming that he ends up with one of them in the end).

    Can’t wait for the next chapter…

    i can only squirm around like setsuna this whole chapter while waiting for things to resolve on negi’s side

    Setsuna needs a better artifact, seriously. And yay, it’s official. Setsuna is the bitch in the relationship and Konoka wears the pants, contrary to what Setsuna thought all this time. :p

    And if Asuna is really related to Negi, he’ll probably consider another permanent partner, like Nodoka. This is what I’m hoping but I’m pretty sure Ken Akamatsu is going to make Negi okay with the incest, which I hope doesn’t happen. Not because of incest but because Asuna seems like the obvious pick for his permanent partner since her pactio rocks the hardest in battle compared to the others.

    What’d I tell you, Kurogiku-neechan? WHAT’D I TELL YOU?

    Also, it’s the first time Setsuna actually wears headgear. Ribbon’s kinda bit off on emphasis, but hey, it adds on the cuteness. It’s hard to even note that Konoka’s actually the stronger one in the emotional sense than Setsuna.

    Konoka finally drags Setsuna off to give her an object lesson on the nature of their relationship, huh? Can’t say I don’t approve.

    Wonder whether Kurt’s bodyguards actually amount to anything other than a demonstration of his willingness to bend the law. They look mean, but coming off the heels of the Rakan fight the idea that they have any bearing on his ability to push Negi around is hard to swallow. Could be Akamatsu goes against the usual action manga grain and makes groups somewhat effective against single powerful opponents, though.

    This is why I read Negima every week. Badass Negi fighting scenes and all those Konoka x Setsuna moments.

    Kurt Godel?

    I kind of half expected Setsuna to start nosebleeding to (Maria Holic‘s) Kanako-esque proportions.

    heh, ahh, now I’m hoping Negi has a chance with Nodoka, and I know 2 girls who will be very happy over the Setuna/Konoka scene

  14. Shade Said,

    hey, hey… just as espected of the both of them :) I believe Setsuna won’t worry anymore after that.

    Wha… Asuna, being Negi’s relative? But… if that was the case, would he never had mention it before, like after he made Asuna drink some sort of “memory-killing” drug? Well… might Asuna be his sister and he also might just realized it (see the “!!!” at the end of the fourth page)?

    Huh… this governor isn’t very friendly with Negi’s family. However I think he said those things to set up the reality about his relatives : both the descritions of his father and mother are at the extremes.
    Her mother destroyed her own country? His father saved it, when he saved the world? Hmm…

    Oops! There’s a missing page here: “…but no worries, Secchan is on the case!”

    About Setsuna’s new card, will doing another Pactio avoid the first one? Also, Konoka wants to be a Magister Magi… like Negi? We don’t even know her fellings about him… We just can assume that not blushing makes her not having feelings about him. But is that really true?

    Can’t wait for next chapter!!

    Arika and Asuna are cousins. At best Negi and Arika are cousins. and cousins marriage in the rest of the world outside the US is fairly common. So to those who think this will knock Asuna out of the race, think again.

    I think Asuna is more like negi’s half sister or something.

  17. Zerstorer Said,

    May 30, 2009 @ 12:45 pm

    Well whatever Asuna’s relationship to Negi is, whether Asuna is out of the race or not, I’d rather not see Asuna end up with Negi. I’ve read Love Hina and I have seen in other places that some people would agree with me when I say that Negima! will be too similar to Love Hina if Asuna ends up with Negi. Asuna is the female lead just like and is the one who hits the male lead the most just like Naru.

    It reddens jusqu’ with the ears small the setsuna!! And Konoka, in a box, it puts its hand on the back of setsuna. Next box, which do I see? Its hand on the nape of the neck of setsuna…

    but,,,,,iam very like negi

    Lol i still think they’re joking about the whole thing, Konoka’s so easygoing she’d french with anyone and call it fun i think she still see’s Set-chan in a playful light, Setsuna herself seems to be just plain embarresed by her charge who’se she’s idolised being so close for anything so even when it’s hugging kissing or anything Set’ll blush for Japan and win the gold, until we see an actual confession of romantic love (heck setsuna accidentally almost spilling “ojo-sama is the onely one i love” could be seen as a protective love”) until i see an actual “I love you Set-chan” and an “I love you too Ojo-Sama” In retrun followed by appropriate kiss i’m not gonna read too deep into something as simple as a Pactio. Heck you’ll recall Asuna frenched Negi in their pactio, much to his surprise. So sorry, as much as you want the full blown Yuri relationship to be established up until this point it’s still little more than a running gag.

    arrgh..I want Konoka and Setsuna..Damn Konoka, she’s really so easy going..But the way she kissed Negi was very much different from the way she kissed Secchan..arggh. I can’t stand this..Konosetsu forever!!

    Does it just look this way to me, or did Konoka put her tongue inside?

    Please, Konoka has never tried to French kiss Negi or anyone else. Yet here she basically jumps on Setsuna when all you needed to do was a simple peck.

    No matter how easy going she is, there is no way she would french kiss anyone. Setsuna held far higher place in her heart than anyone else. If Asuna is Konoka’s best friend than Setsuna is someone more. Of course that scene is not 100% yuri, but whatever Konoka is feeling towards Setsuna is definitely bigger than simple friendship.

    So, what is the update on Negima? I really want Asuna to end up with Negi because I love her personality. She is THE most caring person in this anime. Are her and Konoka still best friends because it really, really doesn’t seem like it anymore. It seems like Asuna hangs out with just the rest of the class now or with Negi.
