Negima! 303


Oh look! It’s another nostalgia piece from Love Hina! Remember that crazy demonic sword Motoko had? Looks like Tsukuyomi took it.


And it sure lives up to it’s name here in Negima! Tsukuyomi looks positively menacing there. Looks like we’re going to have to wait for two more weeks before we see the fight begin. Sigh.

Speaking of which, is that Motoko or Tsuruko instructing Setsuna in the flashback? I would like to think it’s Motoko, who has inherited the Shinmeiryuu dojo from Tsuruko.

On another side…


Kotarou gets a pretty sweet chance to end Fate’s life.




He’s protected by plot armor unfortunately.

Gotta say, does anyone think that part resembles Hunter x Hunter a bit too much? ^^;

    It can’t be Motoko since she subdued the demon sword way back in Love Hina right? Unless this is some sort of alternated universe where it is possible. Meh it’s a manga so no one knows for sure.

    Depends how far that flashback is. I’d imagine that Setsuna was still younger. It’s still 2003 in Negima. I think Motoko was busy starting college or something before taking on dojo duties. And Tsuruko does seem to wear lipstick. Tsukuyomi probably just stole it and reawakened its evil…

    So it is that sword, Tsukuyomi even get’s the sword under similar circumstances too (sword broken then switches)

    Akamatsu starts to absorb HxH style or just a way to show appreciation to the manga..

    It’s way more broken than God’s Accomplice, and it’s definitely the same concept, but the mechanics are still too vague to go into plagiarism. If they had planned to use it to kill off an enemy general or something though, I’d be PISSED.

    Fate could prolly see Kotaro’s group but chose to ignore them. Still, for all the rivalry between Negi and Kotaro, the latter sure has fallen far behind.

    Instructor is Tsuroko. Hina is described as a sword passed down in the East that nearly destroyed the Shinmeiryuu. East is Kanto and Kanto region is where Hinata-Sou is.

    The flashback looks like Setsuna is 6 or 7 years old which would fit before Tsuroko got married and Keitaro hasn’t arrived yet in Hinata. Remember Tsuroko gave up the sword to be a mere house wife.

    Negima is set at 2003. Motoko still had the Hina as her personal sword in 2001 and in the wedding in 2005.

    The Hina was likely stolen between the Kyoto arc and Mundus Magicus arc. Explaining why Tsukuyomi became such a yangire now compared to her earlier depiction.

    The flashback can’t take place before Love Hina as the sword was hidden at that time. I think the confusion about how old Setsuna is in the flashback is due to the difference in size between her and her instructor. Setsuna is of average height, but Tsuroko is much bigger, like Sakaki from Azumanga Daio.

    @SnooSnoo; to be fair Kotaro didn’t have either Rakan or Eva teaching him so it’s understandable

    @Winter; well Kotaro evolves while fighting, Negi is just getting more powerbuffs, so its hard to tell. Would it be just a normal fight without magic, Kotaro might even beat Negi.

    Care for me to make a timeline?

    Unknown – Setsuna meets Konoka. With her are Tsuruko and Motoko.
    1998 – Tsuruko gets married, Motoko runs away (Setsuna age 7)
    1999 – Keitaro at Hinata Inn
    2000 – Keitaro finds Hina at Grandma Hina’s storage place. Motoko successfully seals it and becomes its master.
    2001- Motoko still has Hina such as when she dueled her sister twice
    2003 – Negima, Tsukuyomi has the Hina.
    2005 – Motoko has Hina at Keitaro-Naru wedding

    Tsuruko said herself it is the Youto Hina which came from the East that nearly destroyed the Shinmeiyuu. The history of Hina in Love Hina is that Kyoto burned and the Shinmeiryuu had trouble dealing with it.

    East may I remind everyone is Kanto region. Kansai region is West. Hinata is at Kanagawa prefecture, Kanto region.

    Therefore after Tsuruko went a little loopy it went back to its natural owners the Urashima clan. Two years later Keitaro finds it in storage.

    This makes me wonder, what if Setsuna and Motoko face off with Tsukuyomi to reclaim back the blade?

    Since it’s Motoko’s blade, it would be a nice set up for cross-over LOL.

    Motoko win as she is form the Main Family line and has access to more techniques then mere students.

    somebody call Keitaro to deal with the possessed sword+girl?

  16. DocAstaroth Said,

    September 27, 2010 @ 7:25 pm

    Wait, does that mean Setsuna has to deal with this blade like Motoko once in Kyoto?

    So that means:

    *Follow scene is just my imagination*
    Setsuna: Now it comes!
    *Attacks Tsukiyomi*
    Tsukiyomi: Ah, what are you tryi… Mmph!

    … Woah, talk about ackward… (And so Setsuna starts to build her own harem…)

    Isn’t Keitaro a little too old for Tsukuyomi for that?
