Negi goes berserk. He really is pretty frightening now with the Magia Erebea power-up.
Dark Negi is…..
…. dark. (Whoaaaaaaa what’s with that demonic transformation?!)
Thankfully, Nagi (indirectly) intervenes and stops Negi.
And Chisame deals the final blow to stop Negi from staining his hands. Negi truly made a good choice by picking her to come.
Wow, Asakura getting mad. That’s a first.
After this chapter, I think the theory is that Godel was inciting Negi to murder him (or attempt to) so that he could give his bosses a legitimate reason to execute Negi. Considering all the factors and revelations, it does seem the Megalomesembrian Council is hiding something very dangerous about Arika, possibly one that could overturn Mundus Magicus, until it became desperate enough to try and erase Negi when he was young, but unfortunately failed.
But of course, I don’t think his intentions are as clear-cut as that, and there’s always the possibility he is genuinely trying to help Negi as he used to be part of Ala Rubra (indirectly) and that he is seemingly wasting so much time with Negi by inviting him to the ball, revealing everything about the attack and intentionally inciting Negi to kill him.
In any case, next chapter should see some interesting revelations.
