Negima! 289

Pactio Rally Chapter!


And Nagi makes an appearance?!



Maybe not, Ako is not amused :|


But she still likes it anyways ;)


… wait? It’s only been two days?! This is a loooong filler training arc.


Despite that, the Pactio rally continues with Yuuna!


And after Yunna, it’s finally Makie’s turn for a snoggin’




Hurr durr, and that’s nearly all of them now! Who’s left? Akira only? Damn I forgot who are the current members of the party that haven’t been Pactio’d yet. Oh well…

Anyways, a pretty boring chapter in my opinion, probably because they packed in three Pactios and jumped around here and there between the three girls and the training. Felt rather disorganized if I may say so.

As for the Pactios, it looks like Ako and Makie’s Pactios are the same as the ones released on the character CD’s back in 2005(?), while Yuuna seems to be getting an original one. As for the abilities, we’ll see what they are later.

    Indeed was a rather poor “let’s shovel all them pactios in.” chapter.

    Fortunately Akira gets a good seeing to next time ^_^

    while the chp was a very good, i rahter Ken-sensei get the pactios out of the way now of instead of having it drag on and on and on.

    I’ll try to be optimistic for once and assume that Akamatsu cramped 3 pactio’s in a chapter so he can continue the adventure without distractions…

    So Yuuna got double guns eh? Quite refreshing actually, since most of Ala Alba’s fighters are melee oriented, and Mana still has the mercenary attitude. Still, I’d wished the costume to be a John Woo homage, but oh well…

    Here, have a spreadsheet:

    Well now I can’t look at Makie without seeing Yui-nyan, so my day is ruined -_-

    Two days seems about right. Ken did take a hell of a break right in the middle of it, after all.

    I was a bit disappointed to be honest…really hoped that Makie and Ako would get new designs for their pactios…instead of a rehashed version from that awful first anime…

    As for Yuuna…at first glance, I didn’t notice a cape…and assumed it was a gigantic gun and I was going woah my gosh Black Rock Shooter! Guess not…we can always hope, can we?

    You know who else lacks a pactio? Scroll-Eva
    Negi already hacked the pactio system once for Chachamaru, I don’t see why he couldn’t do it again. After all, Negi is not the type that would let someone disappear just like that

    Fricking 30 girl harem, goddamit.

    Yuuna’s outfit reminds me of Major Motoko Kusanagi’s.

    Also, looks like Ako is a nurse. Probably good, Negi’s team had exactly one healing mage this whole time

    Eva’s hair is longer than she is tall. That seems… hazardous.

    That hair is over 500 years old you know.

    And I seriously don’t foresee Eva getting a Pactio with Negi, scroll or non-scroll. She is already broken enough. Maybe the other way round might work.

    Aye, Ken mentioned that Eva might enjoy having Negi as ministra. Can summon him out of the blue anytime for whatever… >.>

    That said. Negi eventually getting uber powerful, freeing Eva and then Pactioing her and binding her similar to what his daddy did would be somewhat amusing.

    Three pactios shoved into one chapter. Ako’s dream sequence was pretty funny. Maybe Akira will get a card that gives her accelerated swimming abilities.
