The Asuna Strikes Back!
Man, this chapter sure took its time…
( ﾟ∀ﾟ)ｱﾊﾊ八八ﾉヽﾉヽﾉヽﾉ ＼ / ＼/ ＼
Negi getting an ohime-sama dakko save by Asuna. Not sure to squee or lol more.
The d’aaaaaaaw moment of the chapter. Goddamnit, scenes like this makes me feel like AsuxNegi instead of ChiuxNegi :P
Of course, it doesn’t last long.
Oh man, this transformation was pretty awesome. Asuna is looks very fetching in white, don’tcha think?
The Lifemaker’s real identity is… Nagi?!
Hurr… is that the first real contact from Nagi in the series so far? It looks like the Lifemaker isn’t done yet too. Guess that theory of Nagi’s disappearance due to him getting taken over by the Lifemaker was true after all.
Ahahaha, looks like Asuna’s gotten back her previous life’s memories and knowledge.
Time for the deus ex machina restore!
Akamatsu really went quite wild with this chapter didn’t he? Not to mention reminding all of us back again who is the true heroine in Negima! after all this while, lol.
I guess this wraps up the battle to save Mundus Magicus, but the Lifemaker and Nagi angles looks set to be combined for the next (and final?) arc of the series. The idea of Nagi being or taken over by the Lifemaker has been one of the most plausible theories to explain the main mysteries of the series to date and it looks like Akamatsu’s finally confirmed it with this chapter.
Of course, this will probably be slowly revealed in the next hundred chapters ahead, but for the time being, we can rejoice for Asuna regaining her true powers and identity(?) as well. Another 2 more days till the raws hit for the next chapter. I do hope Akamatsu doesn’t waste it all for some fanservice/RnR chapter. Also, Evangeline!
