Negima! 265

Negima!

Negi goes berserk. He really is pretty frightening now with the Magia Erebea power-up.

Negima!

Negima!

Negima!

Negima!

Dark Negi is…..

Negima!

…. dark. (Whoaaaaaaa what’s with that demonic transformation?!)

Negima!

Thankfully, Nagi (indirectly) intervenes and stops Negi.

Negima!

And Chisame deals the final blow to stop Negi from staining his hands. Negi truly made a good choice by picking her to come.

Negima!

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.

    Okay, I must admit, even if Gödel should be the Big Bad of this story, he´s one of my favourite characters already. Every Magnificent Bastard, who even is okay with sacrificing his own life for his plans, earns the “magnificent” part!

    This was a good chapter. Godel’s definitely been messing Negi around and trying to turn him to the dark side.

    The screen you didn’t post where he realises what he wants all over again I think is a great part of the chapter. Also. Eva~~

    Gödel might be trying to put the spotlight in Negi, making everybody ignore Fate, bring more blame on Arika, make Negi the Son of Calamity. Or possibly he’s just testing Negi.

    Also, Chiu is awesome!

    But if he takes off his glasses and slicks his hair back I’m out.

    Just once, I’d like to see a well-done shounen anime or manga that allows the main character to slide into darkness and not look back. The “pull back from the darkness” trope almost never seems to be subverted.
