Negima! 282

A slower-paced chapter after the amazing shit of the past few ones, but still an important one nonetheless for the Negi Party to gain some R&R, healing (severe magic poisoning on Negi’s part) and organizing the information gained.

Firstly, Nodoka reveals the important points about the Lifemaker Code…


So…. One Key to rule them all. Heh. Very LOTR-ish don’t you think. Especially with the 7 Grand Master keys and the final Great Grand Master one. Still, a lot of specifics haven’t been explained yet. Like what’s Cosmo Entelachia’s motive and such.

And finally….


… time to deal with Fakesuna that’s been around since… wow, I forgot. Feels like it’s been a long time since Asuna got some spotlight in the past few tens of chapters. I wonder how this will turn out to be.

On a sidenote… where have all the proper Negima scanlators have gone to? This chapter was like Watermark Hell… not to mention the fact the past three chapters are only available on online manga readers as well. I miss the days of decent releases by Enigma.

    Curse those watermarks, they’re too distracting…

    I bet that Great Grand Master Key is what the Megalosembrian Senate wants to get as well. Wait, does that mean the secret that Arika hides is exposed to the bad guys? Where is she right anyway? Is she still alive?

    It’s about time to confront the Fakesuna issue…wonder how Negi will do the approach?

    Bah they appeared in Fairy Tail too, the watermarks.
    rawparadpise sprawled everywhere and ruining the nice art. I was raging when one covered my Erza’s face. YOU DO NOT STICK THEM ON THE FACES. FFFFFF
    and I really wonder how Negi will confront Fakesuna, and she won’t realise it herself now will she :P but gotta admit, she DOES look rather pretty in the last page ^^
    Nodoka is aweshum stuff, can you imagine her in the future? omg pwnage

    until the fake Asuna was mentioned, I thought Negi might have forgotten about her, due to falling unconscious. Glad he hasn’t.
    For a slight moment I assumed Asuna to be the Key to the Great Grand Masterkey herself, but it would be to simple.

    One Key to rule them all, One Key to find them,
    One Key to bring them all and in the door bind them.

    fakeasuna has been around for quite a while.. whichever English volume is the latest released (within past few weeks) has the chapter where the swap takes place.. hadn’t noticed the swap either at the time other than thinking something was off ^^;

    I miss Aquastar subs more than Enigma subs.

    Wow, I thought Akamatsu had just totally forgotten about Anya entirely, guess I was wrong.

    Considering Cosmo Entelechia’s name, I suppose they’re aiming for some kind of destruction/reconstruction of the world. Or something about bringing the world to a more perfect form.

    Then again, it would be possible for Cosmo Entelechia to be neither cosmic, nor concerned with entelechy.

    I wonder if there’s any other way of getting root access to the Magic World other than the Great Grandmaster Key, and if either Ala Alba or Cosmo Entelechia will be using that in the end.

    For a moment I couldn’t recognize shota Negi…

    Looks like (from spoilers) next chapter delivers again :). In it’s own unexpected way :-D

    He is like the shota version of Nanoha, but he befriends the chicks by tonguing them. How fucking awesome is that?

    @ Sage

    This is nothing! Did you notice that since he trained by Rakan he has developed this nasty disposition to impale male enemies with big, fat… spears made out lightning… So yeah, he is even worse than Shiki Tohno!

    You miss Enigma? Hell, I miss when AQS was a scanlation group. Now they just… sit around and do nothing. And rage-kickban you when you bring up the issue of Negima.
