Negima! 302

The girls get their turn to shine a bit this chapter.


Well, even Negi can’t do everything at once.


Brave move there, Nodoka!


Nice one, Makie!



Ho ho, Makie and Ku Fei laying the smackdown on two of the girls.


Awesome one, team!

Yes, I admit I’ve been lacking a bit in covering Negima for a while now. Forgive me as work and other commitments took their toll. Plus I didn’t really find anything noteworthy to say about the last few chapters. Well, Negi’s lightning staff move was admittedly impressive, but it’s almost expected of him already now.

This chapter is, thankfully, showcases him in a more human side as even he can’t fight a last-boss type and guard a whole gang of defenseless school girls. Good to see Akamatsu lampshading that trope and making the girls not that defenseless. Of course, girl on girl fights are always better. Poor Negi would be too much of a gentleman to actually go all-out against those girls. Best to leave it the ones who will :).

One thing I wanted to mention though, is the chapter 300 Love Hina commemoration special. It was…. rather disappointing once I got to read it. I was hoping for a bit of a revisit on how the characters are faring a few years later on from the series ending, but it seems like Akamatsu took the easy way out and pulled an unused draft out from those days and recolored it for the occasion. Oh well… not really much you can complain about it :P.

I guess next week, we’ll see another really psycho yuri-tastic fight between Setsuna and Tsukuyomi while interspersing with Negi’s fight against Dynames.

    Haha, Nodoka going as far to tackle an enemy engulfed in flames was pretty impressive.

    Is it just me or does Tsukuyomi’s sword look like Motoko’s Cursed Blade Hina?

    Homura used Fire Blitz
    It’s not very effective
    Nodoka used Tackle
    Yuuna used a gun
    Homura fainted
    summed up nicely, no?

    You spelled Dynamis wrong as Dynames at the end

    Rather than calling the cast impressive, I just expect them to surprise me with their growing awesomeness every chapter.

    What I’m really looking forward to is Nekane possibly getting stripped for the first time she has entered the magic world; after making everyone wear her shadow armor… Its just odd that it hasn’t happened yet

    Next week, we may also have mass naked girls and a guy if one of the girl just faint and made everybody shadow armor clothes disappear.
