Negima! 297


Fuck, I cried a lil seeing the chapter cover.


This idiot mother-son pair’s still at it. Thank god for Nagi being the bokke to counter this. Actually in this case, he’s the tsukkomi isn’t he?



Even more d’aaaawwwwwwwwwwwwww. This would’ve been a CMoH if it wasn’t for the fact this is a all a dream.




And the real Zazie makes her appearance. Shock.



Libera me from Hell is an appropriate accompaniment to this chapter.

And that ends our little interlude, which Akamatsu sure is milking the hell out of it, and back to the real world now.

So that’s not the Zazie but her elder sister, which raises questions of who the heck are they and how powerful they really are. Not to mention Zazie herself also has her own Pactio and makes it even curiouser on who are their Magister(s).

298 spoilers should be out by now (holy shit this chapter was really late). Hopefully, scanlations won’t take as long again.

    No mention of Setsuna’s perfect world? Or maybe that was Konoka’s?

    And is that Chachamaru’s world above Eva’s? I really cannot tell. Wait, no, its Luna and Fate, right? So that would be Luna’s perfect world.

    Ku and Dog-boy’s worlds look awesome, but I’d be all over Ako’s world in a second. This needs to be an OAV, stat! No, wait, never mind. Needs to be a spin-off series! (Negima anime is a no-go).

    I notice there is a little bit of several of those perfect worlds in the real world.

    Pretty sure that was Konoka’s perfect world with nekkid apron, as we also saw a ‘happy go lucky kiddy KonoSetsu’ world, which I think it what Setsuna would desire more. Plus we know Konoka teasing Setsuna is her true happiness. XD

    That one text-less page where Negi hold hands with his parents is just……….DAMMIT! No matter how funny the previous pages were, this is just cruel! Aaaargh!

    …sorry. Anyway, 298 spoilers are already out for a few day but so far no raws. Turns out there’s a reason we didn’t see Chisame and Makie in the dreams…

    What a Naruto moment for this dream sequence stuff…

    Negima never ceases to impress me – you just feel for the characters. This chapter really was cruel :)

    I can’t help draw parallels from DC’s Black Mercy…

    … that explains where Zazie’s figure comes from. Oh, so manyw rong thoughts now.

    This so sad. Negi really misses his mom and dad. I wonder if the younger Zazie has the same power as her older sister. I kind of wanted to see what Chisame’s or Makie’s perfect world would have been.

    I’m half expecting Negi to fly away on his staff, and when each of the girls see him, float away as a ball of light with him. :D Of course with Libera Me from Hell as you said.

    I should have cried this chapter, that is until Zazie picked a bad example with Setsuna and Konoka which just cracked me up…

    Good suggestion. I feel like re-reading the chapter while having Libera in the background.

    One thing; that hadaka apron dream is Setsuna’s, not Konoka. In Konoka’s perfect world, Setsuna would call her “Kono-chan”, instead of “Ojou-sama”. Shocking, isn’t it :D

    This was the last thing I managed to read before onemanga took everything off…
