Negima! 307

Negima!

Noooooooooooooooooo!!!! Shiori!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Negima!

Chisame being awesome as usual. Great slap.

Negima!

Oh Shiori’s pretty fine. I guess Negi will still be Negi after all!

Negima!

Unfortunately….

Negima!

… Negi slips in to a catatonic state after realizing what he has done.

Negima!

Still, the girls aren’t losing hope and are pushing forward!

So I guess Akamatsu didn’t have the heart to kill off or even remove Shiori out of the picture yet. But if she did die or get removed, it would probably put Negi in a pretty bad state after that. Instead, it looks like Negi’s going to be out of the picture for the time being, while the girls get to shine. Plus this chapter also conveniently took out the rest of Fate’s Girls from the fighting and Dynamis is just half a body (how is he surviving?!), so the girls should have a straight shot at getting Negi to Fate within the 1 hour 43 minutes deadline.

On the other hand, Setsuna vs Tsukuyomi’s is still raging on and for some reason, we’ve not been given any glimpses of it in the past three chapters. At this point, Akamatsu’s either going to devote the next 2-3 chapters after this week’s break to it to fill up the chapter counts before the final battle or he’s not gonna show the fight at all and move to Fate showdown straight.

Another possibility that exists would be showing Negi in his “dream” world, possibly with appearances of Evangeline-sama. I wouldn’t mind that. At times, I do wonder how interesting things would be if Evangeline were around more…

    More Eva is always needed. But the fights would probably be less interesting since it would be Eva rolling everyone.

    Chisame will always be awesome in my heart.

    That is, as long as she’s not coming back to her “normal world”.

    Well a entire night? I wonder if Negi reserved sometime to off-screen pactio with Akira…

    Just a insurance for the upcoming fights…

    Rooting for Koutarou x Shirabe! And Ala Alba Vs Zetch´s Expy!

    For Negi he should be fine. Well, I think that the Life Maker will come for him, if he don´t go…

    You see, he´s state would be absurd if he could overcome it with willpower.

    And Eva should get something to do in Mahora! A Old rival or something… I have high expectations in the Istambul Magic Association.

    See Ya

    Negi will probably master his own darkness while being K.O. in the real world so people get ready 4 some pwnage.

    Would Negi actually need to do a pactio with Akira? Her card seems like it would have something to do with swimming since she is on the swim team. Negi is unconscious so the next chapter may focus on Setsuna vs Tsukuyomi’s battle. I’m eager to know Tsukuyomi’s back story if she gets one during the battle.

    Dammit, just get to the gorramn Negi vs. Fate fight already. This is getting just annoying with delaying event after delaying event, and the fact there’s a two-week skip every two chapters doesn’t help at all.

    Negi is stoned. Haha at Ku Fei hitting Dynamis while he’s down.

    Well, we still have yet to see what Shiori’s artifact can do. In fact, hers is the only one left in mystery now.

    Shiori (or Luna, I call her interchangeably) has always dealt more with the mind and soul, having her previous ability to copy Asuna’s memories. Her new pactio with Negi would probably also involve the mind, allowing her to look inside someone, in this case Negi.

    After coming to terms with the other Fate girls, I can see Shiori using her ability to directly transfer the thoughts and wishes of the Ala Alba to the catatonic Negi, waking him from his state.
