(Sorry for skipping 317, didn’t feel like it was worth blogging)
Finally, some update on Setsuna! I can’t even remember when was the last time we saw her. In any case, it doesn’t look very good for her. Looks like Tsukuyomi’s really going to finish her off in another few more rounds or something.
But what the heck, this chapter was all Negi badass. I mean…
… look at that hairband! And how he doesn’t care about the HoYay!-ness of being so damn close to Fate. Also, coming out of Lightning Form. AWW HELL YEAH.
Well, with the amount of killing intent that Negi’s putting out….
Oh shit, he just stood there and took the punch like a boss and came out unscathed… but here comes the best part.
AWWWWWWWW YEAAAAAAAAAAAH. Best Hakkyokuken so far. Not to mention Fate finally acknowledging Negi as a worthy rival.
And fuck yeah, Negi. This can’t just end with some boring talk over coffee, tea and cakes.
But, it’s surprising how sharp Akamatsu can still be. In a chapter that basically just sets the stage for the final fight, he throws in this one page that hints on how this might all potentially end in tragedy for Negi. His price to pay for the power to save the world, so to say. This is really why my support for Negima over these past eight years, although wavering at times, has never ever completely faded. And this is why I still pay for buying expensive limited edition manga volumes www
In any case…
… let the long awaited Fate vs Negi final showdown begin!
