Ten-year-old prodigy Negi Springfield, has just graduated from magic academy. He dreams of becoming a master wizard. Instead he's sent to Japan to teach English . . . at an all-girls high school! All the students are delighted with their cute new teacher—except for Asuna, who resents Negi for replacing the teacher she secretly has a crush on.

Although he is forbidden to display his magical powers, sometimes Negi can't resist. And when Asuna discovers Negi's secret, she vows to make his life as difficult as possible— just the thing to prepare Negi for the challenges of life as a master wizard!

April 22, 2006, 03:33 AM
I know, topics like this is not so funny, but i have a download "question" about negima...

I wanna know if there is a website there you can download full volumes of the manga??
i can only find "1 chapter" download sites...

but since this is the first thread i seen about this manga, i can start a discussion aswell.
What do you think of this manga??
If its good/ bad, Funny/boring... you know...

I think its a good replacemt for Love hina, and have a better beginning.
(im sorry for my english, and the crappy start, but its almost the best i can do... :darn)

personally i don't read negima through scans but i buy the tanks from del rey!just got v12 from a friend as a christmas-present but i haven't read it yet but the mahorafest-arc may yet excell the kyoto/nara-arc at this rate!yet i wonder how come akamatsu became so good at making these story-arcs!?since LH&aigt were pure random humor at most part and he never really worry about the plot and such!

Okay, I have no idea if I placed this in the right place, so if I didn't someone tell me please.

I was trying to download the Negima manga and I can't seem to find anyother places anymore. can anyone give me a URL or anything? I tried stoptazmo.com but they don't have the manga there. I also tried vnmanga but the place is under construction.

So far I've downloaded Volume 1 and 2, and 5 and 6. I already bought 3 and 4 for myself so i need help.

thanks...

Just a side note :

Along with Mahou Sensei Negima there was a new spin off series (manga (there is also a spinoff series to the anime))

Negima!? Neo chapter 00 and chapter 01 have been translated so far. I have only read c00 so i can't tell you much about this series but c00 was a good backstory to how negi got to be a teacher.

Don't know if anyone still reads this at Mangahelpers, but eh.

Chapter 169 is out. I grabbed it at #lurk personally. It's a rather interesting chapter.


"great" news ...negima will end in 7 march ....as 1st semester ..
they never stated when will the 2nd semester will start..Yup, it happened. However....

There's going to be a summer vacation story, then the group is going to Wales to look for Negi's dad for the second semester.

ttxdragon
April 27, 2007, 06:16 AM
CH 171 is out already <3
grab it at http://www.aquastar-anime.net/ if you missed the release :)




Well, the summer vacation story sure starts out great xD
Konokas try to not blurt out what asuna is doing,
the alps-training with eva letting out her evil side XD
And we know more about asunas past!

and negi totally owned asuna in 170 o.o

What i wonder with all that time-adding training they make in that reservoir, how akamatsu will take the aging of the characters into consideration. Evangeline already said that they age....
One thing for sure: Negi will likely catch up to the others not long from now, at least a to just being a year or two younger than them.


And I am sooo anticipating the wales arc <3
i hope we will see kaede and kuu fei come with them and forming provisional pacts too
and finally see the pact between Konoka and Secchan!
What will be secchans second artifact?

Newest chapter came out from linked site in above post.

ttxdragon
May 13, 2007, 06:04 AM
yesh <3


it's a great chapter too :D
feel free to discuss it here <3


since some may not have caught up when reading this, here in spoilertag:


Basically, we get some training from the others (throwing some stuff over from a distance... basic, but it's a good step). We get a lil bit more of the technical side of the manga... although it really isn't to be described as technical >.>

What stunned me the most in this chapter is that Takamichi learned how to use kanka from asuna! O.O
and a tad bit more of depression from the words asuna spoke *sniffles*


Eva is soo kindhearted - letting asuna freeze to near death and still not helping >.>
but asuna got some heavy willpower if she wants... although i don't think she'll live through those 7 days if she's already in that condition after 2-3 days...

Meno
May 13, 2007, 05:30 PM
Yeah, I'm quite curious to know exactly wtf Asuna's past was. I mean, she was all traumatized by something and forgot everything, we know that. But besides that, nada.

On a totally different note, Eva is hilarious.

Hmm... Its been a while since someone posted anything here. Well the latest raw of negima came out. Its over at Reiu's thread [Raws] Weekly Shonen Magazine (http://mangahelpers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17112) He has chapters 184 - 187, and let me tell you the latest chapters are Kick-ass

whats happened so far - Negi and them are still training, when someone from Negi's past arrives, Anya, and tries to take Negi back but is stopped. After the whole Anya thing they finally go to wales, but are followed by Incho and them on a private plane and spend the night where Negi grew up. He gets taken to the place where the villagers that got turned to stone were kept and promises something about finding his dad(like always) and that he will find a way to turn them back; He was taken there to show the dangers of what can happen if he goes to the magical world. During the night, Negi and his group sneak away, so Incho and them wont follow them to the gate that will take them to the magical world, but Makie, Yuna, some others manage to follow them through the magical fog and are transported to the magical world with everyone. During this whole time Negi was feeling this mysterious presence. It turns out to be the white-haired guy Negi fought during the Kyoto ark. In the last two chapters, ch.186-187, Negi gets impaled by a stone/Ice spike as a welcome message to Negi from the white-haired guy, then the white-haired guys group and Negis' begin to fight. These two chapters are freaking Bad-ass! man great action, great fights, cant wait to know happens next chapter! :XD

Jepp, ch189 definitely was a fun one once more...


So, the scattering has taken place so i wonder how the groups were split :O

Negi/Chachamaru was already a weird one, but an effective magic/technology rescue group.

hmmm.... if akamatsu is gonna make a non-magic group in all the mess? would be a bit more drama/angst in it, i guess :amuse

really waiting for the next chapter :D

IIRC, there was a conversation with Eva in which she said that she was allowing Chachamaru to accompany Negi. After that she showed up occasionally in the background. If you go back to chapter 186 you can see her on the 2nd page as a member of Negi's party.

I know this is jumping back a bit, but I just noticed something odd - I thought this story was taking place in an all girls school. In Yue's flashback in chapter 128, first look at the students in the shot from the back of a classroom, right after 2年前..., it looks like about half the students are male. Also, in the next frame, look over Yue's left shoulder. Both of the students there look like guys. Does this strike anyone else as odd?

Lols yeah, from what I could tell in this chapter was that Negi got mad at those guys for mistreating his students. Not sure on this but since the girls are slaves until they can pay the 1 million doucha (? not sure on this) debt or the money from that world Negi and them got the Idea of entering in a fight tournament that has a price for that much. When they arrive there their opponent was the guy Negi beat in the bar and was all scared of them :D Though I wonder what will happen with Mana and Takahata coming over. Wait how did they arrive in the magic world when the gate or teleport was destroyed.

November 22, 2007, 04:15 AM
I'm only at chapter 130 right now, but I'm a bit perplexed about Asuna's sword... It seems that, although most of the time her weapon is just her huge paper fan ("made of an unknown metal", according to the tournament's anouncer), from time to time, it turns out to be the sword she has on the card... and no one ever seems to notice the difference, not even herself.

As far as I remember, for the moment (up to chapter 130, that is), she has used it 3 times :
- first time, chapter 61 (http://www.onemanga.com/Mahou_Sensei_Negima%21/61/17/) ; when trying to save Negi from the sharks. No one makes any comment whatsoever.
- second time, during the tournbament match against Secchan (chapter 102 (http://www.onemanga.com/Mahou_Sensei_Negima%21/102/13/)), after her flashback with Gatou's death. This time people notice and seem surpirsed... but even if Asuna remembers what happened during the fight, she doesn't make any comment about the sword itself.
- 3rd time, during her "date" with Takamichi sensei (chapter 130 (http://www.onemanga.com/Mahou_Sensei_Negima%21/130/16/)) ; once again, no comments from anyone.

Of course I still have quite a lot of chapters to read before being up to date with the manga, and I think everything will be explained ; but now it has almost become her "casual" weapon without anyone noticing... So, my question, did I miss something ? I read the chapters again when looking for the exact pages, and I haven't seen anything explaining that. I mean, sure I can understand she uses suuch a weapon, since she seems to have such a mysterious (for the moment) past, but what's really bothering me is that no one cares. Well I'm starting to repeat myself, but you got the point.

Oh and since it's the first time I post in this section, nice to meet you all ;)

DrunkDragon
November 22, 2007, 05:01 AM
Yo welcome :D, yeah I also noticed that but I think that when she started to remember her past she began to use it more frequently. Oh and in the later chapters she uses her sword again or more frequently... Spoiler When she starts training with Negi and Kotarou. I don't want to ruin it for you, but if you want me to specify Ill be happy to explain. But the way she uses the sword is pretty trivial :D but fun.

shadowfigher
November 22, 2007, 05:09 AM
I think she can only summon the weapon true form at first when she gets emotional(kind like the cliche thing for manga), but after the first 2 times she summoned it she began to get the trick to get it out every times she wants. In the recent chapter she can easily switch from the fan-like to the sword without any problem.

Shrimp
November 23, 2007, 12:48 PM
Hey DrunkDragon, so I'm not the only one from the Reborn sub-forum coming here also ? :)

OK, I'm now up to chapter 195... But even if, as you said, Asuna seems to be able to use the real stuff more often, it doesn't change anything to the fact that nobody noticed she had suddenly a different weapon. Well, I guess the real mystery would be that she summoned a fan, instead of the sword pictured on her card, not the other way around ;)

And since we're talking (well, I am, for that matter) about the different appearances of some of the artifacts, I really liked the part where Honya was reading the minds of the 4 people after her badge, on 4 different books :) Setsuna seems to be able to summon different kinds of weapons too, usually daggers, but I think she used a second sword during her fight against Chao. Gotta check that.

Anyway, I think I'll lurk on this thread from time to time now, since I've really enjoyed the manga so far. I was expecting something more like Love Hina, but it definitely looks like it's much more "shounen-ish". ...btw do you usually get spoilers/scripts every week, or is it more irregular ?

ttxdragon
November 23, 2007, 01:00 PM
Sweet <3

more negima fanboys is always good <3

Well,

for Asunas weapon...
I guess the ones we could've seen comments by already knew about the sword from Negi (likely with the card-instructions etc), so we didn't get comments from them... We got comments when other people were involved... that's good enough for me for now :)

but yeah, the different forms that come with different levels of mastery of the artifact look sweet :D

I wonder what Tatsumiya and Takamichi will do now~ hmmmmm~ and especially: WHY did they come there?



as for spoilers/scripts:
sadly not, but the chapters raw gets out regularly and fast :amuse so it's not much of a problem :)
(especially since spoilers in negima would not make that much sense xD imho)

This week is a pause though, so next week we should get another chapter :)


well... further than that, on scripts/etc....

November 23, 2007, 02:11 PM
I wonder what Tatsumiya and Takamichi will do now~ hmmmmm~ and especially: WHY did they come there?

Something just came to my mind when I saw them in the last chapter... What if the bounties and the video showing Negi destroying the pillar were not Fate's doing, but instead were made by the Magical World's government (whatever this world has as a government) ? There would be 2 possible hypothesis :

- first, since the guards were wiped out by Fate, there's no witness, so it could be possible they really believe Negi and co did it ; but that wouldn't explain the video.

- my second theory : since there has been a lot of people with no clue as to where they are, sent thoughout the world, that could be an effective way to find them as quickly as possible. I'm sure there would be a lot more people interested in the bounty than there would be wanting to help finding a bunch of "normal" people. And it's not like Ako or the other ones would try to do stupid things and get themselves into danger if some bounty hunters attacked them. Even though, it would be a pretty stupid method to find them.

One way or another, bringing those two, who know a lot about the missing students, would accelerate the research, but I don't think they would have called upon them if they really tought Negi to be a bad guy ; the MW is sure to have a way of dealing with this kind of event.

On a side note, I'm sure Asuna will show up in the tournament, don't know why, but... I could see her having been captured, and forced to fight in the arena as the last boss :amuse

ttxdragon
November 23, 2007, 02:39 PM
the second theory would be nice, indeed. though the problem is with not everyone being indexed as "bounty", we know that the three "slave-girls" (just had to call them that XP) were not on that list...
which would be a weird way of searching. since, iirc, they knew that there was "extra-luggage" transported and the vid-stuff should have been easily made their faces known... they weren't that far away, now were they?

further... the officials should know that setting a bounty on peoples heads would make those people hide harder/go against people who want the bounty... and I don't think they would underestimate negi and the rest of the crew after the display of power at the gate-plaza (forgot the name if there was one xD).


Asuna being the last boss and forced to fight... Negi would have a pretty easy time then, I believe.
Even if she is forced to fight at full, she gets her magic from Negi and he can refuse her that part. Meaning her kanka would be a good bit less powerful than if negi grants her his magic. She can get some magic of her own as seen in the flashback, but from the fight with Setsuna it seems as if her main magic source is negi.

Negi has come a long way with his fighting and I can't seem to think that Asuna would be stronger than him without the extra-magic he would provide her with in normal fights.
(Not to mention that in "teenager form" Negi just needs to get close to Asunas face to bring her off-balance xD)

It could become an interesting fight though, depending on how Akamatsu pulls that off. Though I see them going through the rescue parts pretty fast and I can't see a tournament taking a big role now... The tournament from the Festival-arc is still pretty fresh in memory when it comes to that... so, I can't see there being a major fight, just simple single-panel ownings for now.

It definitely has.
Sadly the series is underappreciated due to the long time it needed to introduce the basic char-setup and relations etc (what i can understand, seeing how many gals there are and that he didn't want to over-pace the story).

That the Animes weren't exactly great either doesn't help much >_<


I wonder, when did you guys start to really love negima?

I picked it up when it first came out in germany, lay it back because the first looks were like "No. Not another Love Hina, but this time with a small brat."
I took a look at it again a month later or so (online, thx to AQS and Lurk xD) and got hooked after getting over the first two volumes with them being "mediocre ecchi fun" for me... the eva-storyarc really had me started to get more interested in everything, as it marked the beginning of a backstory for Negima :)
And then came the Kyoto arc, something not so special when comparing it to first "storyarcs" of other manga, but i still found it insanely fun and addicting :D



Oh, and feel free to discuss the whole series more here :amuse
Sparking Interest into the series is always a good thing, having more discussion can lead to more attention from the crowd and subsequently maybe even subforums :D
(yes, i would love to get one xD Negima is too awesome to stay without one)

DrunkDragon
November 23, 2007, 06:34 PM
Lols so true, Well I first tried Negima when I heard that the author of Love Hina started on another series, Mahou Sensei Negima!, Since I liked his style I tried it out and loved it at first sight. The first chapters were hilarious that it kept me coming for more XD. Im not sure where in the manga I started but it was around the 90th releases from AQS. I then went on #lurk and got my self all the volumes up to where AQS was and been with them ever since :D. After a while the story started to develop more and had some awesome magical fight scenes which perked up my interest even more. To bad the anime gave this series a bad rep.

Has anyone else noticed that Negi now has a scar on his cheek? At first I thought it was going to disappear after a while like most other mangas, but no that really supprised me. He still has it. Though for a scar its kinda weird looks more like a deep line on his face than a scar to me. I can't remember how he got it anyone remember?

He got it at some point during the school festival tournament, before the fight with Setsuna. Looks like it happened during the fight with Takamichi.

Wow, I just read those chapters 2 days ago, and yet I didn't remember all that... Guess I read a litle too fast.

Well, there are still a few mysterious things that haven't been explained, so even if I had read more carefully I guess I wouldn't have understood everything... For example, just who is Zazie ?! She seldom spoke in the whole manga, nor smiled ; she can see the ghost girl ; and she seems to be perpetually surrounded by those strange faceless Miyazaki-like ghosts...

And could anyone please explain how the heck could that cook girl (was it Satsuki ? i'm not good with names...) have a flying van ?... ok, Chao surely has something to do in this. So that means Satsuki knows about Chao's past ? And she was even seen in the sewers when Asuna and the others came to rescue Takamichi...

xhronoz
November 24, 2007, 09:15 PM
if i heard right Zazie will be explained in the last arc. (just wishes i could see her pacto card (if she has an official one)) but just think if i remember Nagi -fake said you are only half way. So is there going be 26 vol's like most manga. or do like DB/DBZ and start of all new in high school? if negi contuned to use the training gound at eva's he could eventuly catch up to the age as the class or pass some. too many things. like when is he going train with a sword or did i miss it?

I think the van was chao's in the first palce.

I don't think you clearly read what I said.
"He got it at some point during the school festival tournament, before the fight with Setsuna. Looks like it happened during the fight with Takamichi."


I, too, look forward to finding out about Zazie. Hopefully it comes before the final arc.

Hmm, it's summer break and they're in third year of junior high, so they have several more months before high school starts... I'm thinking the story will finish by the time they finish high school; otherwise the series may drag on too much.

or will he be making pact's with them cause think for a second they will be traveling with Negi/Nagi so they will find out about that. and see him do magic. unless they still have the items they used during the "Mars attacks" arc.

It's as if he's really suicidal, as that name surely will bring out strong people with grudges against Nagi -- and if he has "luck" someone of those is in the arena :S

Well, since he knows he had a bounty, I suppose he wouldn't say his real name in front of a huge crowd... And since he called his older self "Nagi" since his first meeting with Ako while in that form, perhaps it was the first thing that came to his mind.

But he may also have thought a lot about this, and expects/hopes some strong people would show up... Why he'd do that, I have no clue...

ttxdragon
November 29, 2007, 11:29 AM
I wouldn't say that it's the first thing to come to mind...
the first thing negi should note - seeing as he is not that dumb - would be that naming himself as the thousand master in the magic world would spill trouble.


but then again, he could also hope that his father is intrigued to who is impersonating him and it might make it easier for negi to find him...

Since I'm bored, while we wait for a scanlation, I give to you... a little questionnaire. I know, I know, I'm usually the last one to answer these kinds of things, so if no one wants to I won't care. Ok now for the questions :

1- Who's your favorite girl in 2/3-A ? (now that's a useless question...)
2- Your favorite artifact ?
3- What kind of artifact would you have ? I'm not asking which one you would want to have, but rather what kind of thing would match your hobbies/personality.
4- What are your favorite parts in the manga so far ?

I know nobody cares, but here are my answers :

1- A tie between the shy Nodoka and the mysterious Zazie. Natsumi is kinda cute too.

2- Chisame's, for its ultimate geekiness :)

3- I'm usually pretty discreet and quiet, so something emphasizing on that would suit me ; perhaps shoes making no sound whatsoever, or making people not notice my presence, this kind of thing. and since I'm a nice guy I wouldn't use it for robbery or other illegal activities ;)

4- In no particular order :
The whole part where Nodoka learns of Yue's feelings for Negi, and the following crisis, showing the true friendship between these two.
Paru making weird clones of Nodoka (I would really have liked to see that "ero-Nodoka" ;) )
Iincho's past. A really sad, yet beautiful part.

Heh, Im sure the action is going to start picking up after that statement and is Negi getting more daring? This is a change that I dont mind ;D

Oh and ch 197 is out *Goes to read*

December 05, 2007, 08:23 AM
yesh!!

197 is out and is once more great <3


gotta love the LoveHina refference xD (Somehow Makie reminded me totally of Su Kaora xD)
and hurray for the tournament not having the main focus, but the happenings around it :)
(and yuna and makie in maid costumes <333333333)

one more chapter of pure win for negima :D

Shrimp
December 05, 2007, 09:18 AM
Phew, that's a lot of talking... I wish I knew more Japanese :( (the only part I understand is Negi talking to Makie and Yuuna through the TV, although I don't know why he only speaks to them... I don't remember, but are they the only ones remaining who don't know about magic ?)

And since I haven't read nor watched Love Hina, what's th reference you're talking about ?

ttxdragon
December 05, 2007, 09:54 AM
it's a minor reference....
it might just be reminding me alone, but that makie-riding-on-weird-being-while-having-ancient-looking-stuff-with-her reminded me off the beginning of the Toudai-ruins arc xD

you should really read love hina when you get the chance.

you might find many characters being similar to the ones you know from this class
(some are nearly perfect copies xD)

According to my crappy japanese skills...

なるほど なるほど

まだまだガキだが...
[don't really understand that one... "まだまだ" means "not yet", "ガキ" is "brat"... it could mean "however it's still just brats", something like that]

筋は悪かねえようだな
[something about their logic being wicked, as I understand it...]

It should be more along the lines of
"I see, I see. Still brats, but... They aren't half bad."
since I wouldn't want to interpret "筋" one way or the other (be it muscle, plan, ability) I'd just put it in a round about way of "They" as in both ways "Their plan isn't" and "Their fighting ability isn't".
of course in the context it likely will refer to the plan if that person really knows more than what we can guess he knows from his connection to the thousand master, but I wouldn't bet on it just yet.

I have just read the translation of number 197 and things seem to become pretty interesting. I still don't get waht the thing that Negi lacks is supposed to be. "Idiocy" isn't an explanation at all.

DrunkDragon
December 15, 2007, 06:39 PM
Kotarou changed it from idiocy to a finishing move when Negi asks him what he was missing. where in the situation it was pretty stupid how he responded. Still laughed at that part though :D

I still don't understand what he lacks of...

Shrimp
December 17, 2007, 01:13 PM
I think when Kotarou said he lacks "idiocy", he meant that Negi always overthinks everything and stresses for nothing. He would be better just fighting wis his instinct.

And after reading chap. 198 translation, I realize I misunderstood it for the most part... Well, not like I tried to translate anything however, but I thought that the black-hooded guy was some sort of doll summoned by the blonde-hair giant (do we know his name already ?), same kind of technique that Takane Goodman used. Glad I was wrong ;)

matrice
December 17, 2007, 04:05 PM
I don't know if I remember correctly, but it seems that the blonde giant could be one of Nagi's comprades: it seems almost like he provided the child with a fitting opponent in order to train him, since when thing are turning bad he almost think about giving him a hand. Well, in the end it seems like Negi is hurt pretty badly, but I don't reallt like the fact that the little girl still thinks that he is Nagi... Sooner or later she should realize who he really is, and in my opinio hte sooner the better.

Shrimp
December 17, 2007, 04:53 PM
Yep, the blonde giant is likely to be the big guy with the sword on Nagi's party photagraphs. (seen in chapters 53 and 129, for those who care)But I don't think he "provided" him with the opponent, and I don't want to see the bill for his help after this fight...

matrice
December 18, 2007, 01:47 PM
The reasons behind the dude's attac are very uncertain, maybe he has only a grunge against Negi's father, but he said "so an AA class is too much for the litle bird" (page 13), so I think that he knows something about this... maybe he told the guy where he could have fond Negi knowing that he had a grunge against the Thousand Master... It also seems that he know's Negi's true identity as a ten years old.

ttxdragon
December 18, 2007, 02:09 PM
The scar-dude definitely does know his stuff, but judging from the attitude he displayed I don't think he wants revenge or something...
Right now he seems somewhat like eva to me, seeing the "geez, i really gotta help him, but i'll only do it for a price"-behavior...
I think it's gonna go the way of 'negi pays for buying them out of slavery' -> 'dude goes with them to collect the debt negi has' -> 'dude trains negi, increasing the debt' -> 'dude becomes longtime ally and irreplaceable in the search for nagi'

matrice
December 20, 2007, 09:04 AM
Maybe, but I really don't want him to join their group permanently, since he would mess up the balance of power (which is already pretty unstable), since he seems as strong as Eva-chan. I like the preining part, since Negi as heis now lacks something and he surely can't do much about that if he is alone. Plus a little help from Takamichi and the black chick is a good think, but I don't think that hìthey would stand a hcance agains somenone of the level of that Fate.
Well, if the kind of battle we have seen is the scar dude's way of training, it sure looks even more scary and life-threatening of Eva-chan's.

That would be interresting... Wasn't Albireo supposed to train him too ? I wouldn't be surprised if he had said it just to tease Evangeline, but Negi using gravity magic would be nice (perhaps to strenghten his wind attacks ?). I suppose the big guy (he's named "Rakan" btw if I read that correctly) would train him in close combat instead of magic, which may have some... interresting results.

I saw that a long time ago too ; the game looks pretty fun in multiplayer, but the character selection screen bothers me : unless it's just the beginning cast and there's a lot of unlockables, 10 characters is just not enough. I read on gamefaqs that all the girls from 2-A are supposed to be playable but so far I haven't seen anything to prove that.
This game is obviously based on the Negima Neo series, which I don't know too much about (is it the same thing as "Negima?!" ?), and so there's a few things happening during the fights that seem weird (were these chupacabras wandering the stage ?), or special attacks that I don't know about (in another video you see Eva sitting on a throne, shooting a big laser beam...)

So now we know Negi will indeed be trained by Rakan... while we still haven't see the results of his training with Al yet :( At least Asuna seems to make alot of progress, maybe too much, but judging from the last panel I guess we will learn of who she really is pretty soon (I know, it will never be soon enough...)

So Yue bumped her head and lost her memory ? I only tried to translate the last two panels, that glasses girl (her name seems to be Colette) asks her if she remembers... something, and Yue says she doesn't. And she has that big bandege on the head, too...

And if I understand it right, the other girls were going to town ; so I think they will bump into the others from Ala Alba (Kotarou and co I think, since the others are training or looking for the badges' signals), and since Colette seemed pretty concerned with Yue, if she sees their badges, she wion't hesitate to ask about it.

Yeah I know, the translation isn't even out (and I may be complety mistaking) and I'm already making predictions for 203 :P

ttxdragon
February 02, 2008, 11:53 AM
I wonder in which city that witch-school is....
And yeah, Yue lost her memory after the GatePort Incident and is now attending that school and studying and studying and studyign even more to maybe get some hints onto what her lost memory is...

poor yuecchi ;_;

As for the rest... I wonder what the family of Fate has as history with Nagi&co, since Jack Rakan (yes, that's his full name >_< ) apparently knew quite a bit about him...
not to mention he judged fate to be about six times as strong as the current negi. Ouch, I say xD

There sadly wasn't all that much in depth info in the chapter... as on every point where it could get very interesting... Rakan wanted money >_< horrendous sums of money xD

Better wait for the AQS release or a good translation for details :p


as for predictions...
hmm... It's hard to predict much... Negi will certainly get interesting training from Rakan, though I doubt we'll see much of it for the sake of suspense. The Yuecchi story will almost for sure be featured in 203 and I'd like to see the "groups run into each other" part, though I wouldn't mind Yuecchi being at the school there for a bit more time... And I want status updates on Nodoka, now that Yuecchi was shown... Since they're always somehow related in the story she should show up soon.

I guess we could get one or two status updates per "lets accompany the world travelers"-method. No real danger will occur until they fetched Setsuna and Asuna, I'd say... I don't see the Chachamaru/Asakura/Sayo triplet becoming another lost team. Would be somewhat overkill, I guess.

http://hikagenonakade.blog117.fc2.com/blog-entry-69.html
http://evasdoll.blog35.fc2.com/blog-entry-72.html

According to the people at AQS, Yue's memory loss is due to Colette (btw her last name is Farandole, a French dance's name) : she was training when Yue fell on her, and the memory loss spell she was practicing was cast on poor Yuecchi, so she feels guilty and tries to help her. Colette wishes to join some magic knight organisation, and I think Yue is going to follow her in this.

ttxdragon
February 13, 2008, 04:02 PM
Well, Yue's part is basically covering how she got examined after she got hit by the spell, to ensure her safety... then we get to see that colette did it, but she wouldn't wanna tell the teacher, then yue gets enrolled in that school until she gets her memory back (while staying in the same dormroom as colette (yeah, colette wanted that :D ).

As for the training:
Evangeline fights using darkness, which is what he wants Negi to learn too.
But to make use of darkness, you gotta get dark in all your thinking... So, he tells negi to make a bad/repulsive looking face, like he hates the whole world or something, to get over the first step.
"To create a repulsive feeling in yourself, you gotta have a repulsive face." or something like that :)

I didn't read all the long texts, just skimmed over them, so no details from me :p

could someone do a summary of this chapter ?
short version of the 'negi' part:

negi waved between light and darkness, because he didn't want to lose his friends...
Since Darkness would be regarded as the path of being alone for all times. Chisame told him that whatever he chose, he'd still have them around him and that he wouldn't walk alone.

Long thoughts about "I am my own person" and "I don't have to follow in my fathers footsteps to find him" and such stuff....

The Scroll is a special scroll that was supposed to contain info on the darkness, but eva popped up and did something to negi (sry, only skimmed on from here, don't have much time right now :p ).

Short joke was:
Negi said he chose darkness "Because he also loved his Master" (the 'also' in reference to his father, it's more of a way to say "Really really like", which is often used in love confessions) and Rakan said "A decision made because of Love" (he went for the real "Love" instead of "liking")....

well,
bottomline:
negi chose darkness....

I'm gonna see if I can write something about nodokas part when i get back home *is in a hurry right now*

Not much happened, but this chapter was still great :3 finally some development on negis part :nod

From what I gathered on AQS forums :

The group Nodoka was with are treasure hunters ; the ring she holds on the last page supposedly can be used to know people's names (if that's true then her artifact's ability will be much more useful in the near future...)
Anyway, 3 pages worth of Honya is an instant win for me :D

Alright i read this some where and it is in the back of my mind for some time now. You know during the "kiss contest" even the fakes made card. so dose this mean that negi and Eva have one? chapter 137 last page. that should have at lest mad a card appear somewhere. cause chapter 201 page 3. well i know it's old but didn't see it on a topic anywhere.

roku-sky
March 01, 2008, 08:42 PM
You'd need somebody to perform the actual pactio rite (eg magic circle) for a card to appear... Cards don't appear out of the blue just from kissing. During that kissing contest (I assume you mean the one with many fake negis running around?), the whole school was inscribed with a pactio circle, so any kisses during that time with Negi would have formed a card.

DrunkDragon

Heh, though I wonder what it would be like to have Eva as his partner. I know it would certainly not be boring thats for sure; Man I just love Eva's personality when she's in dark mode, can't wait to see what happens in the next chapter. But I think this training that Eva put Negi through, when he opened the scroll, will probably be something similar to that magic she used on Setsuna during the tournament.

Shrimp
March 03, 2008, 04:55 AM
And that brings another question : for the moment, Negi has only made pacts with girls with no magical ability (at the time) ; but what if he tried to make a pactio with Eva... which one would get the artifact ? :) I guess in that case, the least powerful of the two would make the pact with the other one (and so, Negi would have an artifact...). But perhaps who makes the actual pact is determined by the magic circle itself, or by a mutual agreement between the two...?

Wow after reading again what I just wrote, I realize it makes almost no sense... well, if anyone understands what I meant, feel free to clarify/break my theory :p

Funchi
March 03, 2008, 07:22 AM
i would say the magic circle determines who gets the artifact! what do u mean negi has done pactio with girls with no magic abilities? Asuna (sealed power due to memory erase), Konoka (huge magical power, could be stronger than Nagi), and Setsuna...these 3 girls have magical power...

Are we sure that the Evangeline seen in 205 and 206 is the real Evangeline? What I mean is that Negi said that it wasn't a usual scroll and she only appeared when he took off the seal and opened it. I' m thinking that this might be a several hundred year old copy of Eva, judging by the looks. I mean she's wearing that cloak that she had on in those flashbacks (during the tournament) and she looks really evil. Not like the Evil Mode that we saw right before this arc began, which made her seem like some Lex Luther-style bad guy, but rather a full blown horror-movie monster. At least thats what it felt like to me, how 'bout you guys?

roku-sky
March 08, 2008, 06:59 PM
She's a pseudo copy of the real Eva, according to Rakan. We've only seen her in 3 panels so far, and she hasn't said much - so I'm currently holding off on what exactly she is: a current copy of her, or a copy of the Eva from hundreds of years back.

I find it strange though that she seems to recognize Negi, by the familiar way she's speaking to him. And then there's the whole subject of how Rakan got hold of that scroll in the first place...

I think he needs to win a mock battle with Eva and maybe when you win that battle you will get the qualifications to be able to use the dark

Wolfshadow
March 09, 2008, 02:00 PM
If she's a copy of Eva from when the scroll was made, then it'll be easier for Negi to win - full powered magic or no. At least that's what I think, 'cause she wouldn't have learned the Akijuijitsu yet or polished up her other abilities through experience. So that's what I'm hoping for, anyway.

roku-sky
March 22, 2008, 05:33 PM
General summary of the Negi vs Eva fight:


Eva comments how Negi uses the 'guilty sword' - copying one of her own techniques. Which makes her think that he had subconsciously wanted to go down the dark path from the very beginning. She finds it amusing there are still those who would willingly pursue the path of darkness.

She goes on to question whether he understands the true meaning of the dark path. Is it simply the opposite of the light path? To him right now, it seems the only use for darkness is a quick way to gain 'strength'. He has to realize the purpose and meaning behind the so-called darkness, or she'll defeat him and he'll die there. Meanwhile, Negi as always, tries to reason his way through things - this Eva is just part of his imagination, made from his own thoughts, his own projection of Evageline... But then... to his own thoughts, Eva is... *image of an invincible evil vampire pops up*

"...Oh shit! With this image I'll never stand a chance!" *sweatdrop*

Eva then says that this darkness is something he should have understood long ago, confusing him before she instant-steps next to him and punches his guts out.


I wonder how long this fight will last - and if Chisame will actually cut it short. Either way, its very interesting to explore Negi's darker aspects.

Well, FH not doing it anymore is definitely good news to me as it means it's 'quality and continuity over speed' again for negima. (I personally never downloaded FH's Negima releases after the first 2 they did, because I simply couldn't stand the engrish in the release. And no, I don't mean to bash the group, they're doing a nice job on some other series, but their negima was just... out of line.)

But... if you find a translator that'll be willing to post on MH, I'm sure we would find people interested into cleaning Negima and releasing it, fluke32.

Chapter 206 (http://www.mediafire.com/?oxwxidwmyg0)

Here's a side to side comparison between the Franky House and AQS versions of chapter 206 that I put together (Note that both were made with the same RAW). In my opinion it shows the difference between the two groups. Yes, AQS takes longer to put out a scan, thats because they put more effort into doing it RIGHT, rather than fast. I can't say for sure but it looks like all FH did to clean the RAW was set it to black and white, lighten it and apply a blur. Good enough, but not great. The Blur hides a lot of the details and they didn't even straighten some of the pages. Also, AQS seems so give a damn about continuity in their translations, unlike FH whose names, places and various honorifics and speech pasterns change between chapters (though that might be because of different translators doing it from week to week). I don't mean to insult Franky House, they do A LOT of excellent work and I was never upset to read their Scans of Negima (or any other project), AQS is just better at Negima then they are. The difference is that Negima is just another manga at FH (one that they might have now dropped) while at AQS it's pretty much their Flagship project and so they care more about it.

roku-sky
March 23, 2008, 06:19 PM
Well, as long as somebody's still doing it... AQS used to scan tankabons, which was amazing quality. The group that did the absolute best cleaning was Binktopia the one time they scanned chapter 191. To this date I have no idea how the heck they did it.

On a separate note I've finally located a decent sized page 2-3 chinese scan (which I translate from), and there's more revelations on "darkness" which I missed before due to small unreadable writing. I'll translate some dialogue from p.2 on, which I found most interesting.


p.2-3
Eva:
Hahaha!
I never thought there would still be somebody who would willingly choose the path of darkness!

Negi:
The surroundings have...! Wait, calm down, this is all in your head! This is not the real master!

Eva:
What is darkness? Boy!
Is it the shadow that is the opposite of light?
Like day is to night? // The straight to crooked? // Good to evil? // Order to chaos? // The tidy to the messy?

But to you here, the only thing darkness has to offer you is...
Raw power!!

*Insert spell chantings here*

It is the power that can engulf everything, the original darkness that preceded creation...
In other words, the Primal Chaos!

p.4
(Ice blast!)
Eva:
If you do not understand this, the purpose of the darkness, you will only be defeated by me, then... //
Killed!

Negi:
Engulfing all creation...
The original darkness...

(Calm down, this master is just a figment of my imagination, a projection of my memories of her... In other words, my "shadow"! If she is created in my own image of her...)

(My image of master... master is... is...)
(I'll never win!)

p.5
Eva:
But to be frank, this kind of understanding...//
You should have realized long ago.

Negi:
Huh?

*Sounds of Negi getting his butt handed to him*


Yep, some pretty interesting stuff in there that I couldn't see before. I'd translate more if I got time - but AQS should have their release in a few days, anyway. :P

It's not true that FH will stop doing Negima it's just that we're not doing it for the month of April.

Well, it wasn't to be mean, bash or anything, but then FH should make use of proofreaders - as it should be common among scanlation groups, speed or not, anyway - (and I'm mainly talking about the first few chapters, since I haven't seen the later ones, the comparison posted above seemed far better than what I read from FH's negima before) ^^;

My purpose for my previous post is to let people know why it won't be out more quickly like how it was in recent weeks, and to have someone pick up the project for the time being just in case someone is interested.:-/


Also, IMO, the more groups doing the same project, the better, not the other way around. Competition on a manga means that The manga is getting a lot of Attention. MSN had 4 groups competing for it at one point. In the end only AQS and an Anonymous individual scanlator a was left competing... Well, the guy eventually gave up on it, and joined a group. lol!

Anyway, it seems Negi is confusing "Desperation" from "Darkness" it seems. This assumption of mine is based on how in the first half of the chapter we see Negi being able to manage surviving against Eva, but on the latter half we see him getting hurt and becoming resolute on using dark magic.

Desperation would be a pretty dark thought.
"I'm going to die, my friends are going to die, my allies are going to die, the world is going to end. I NEED to do something."

That would be the defining emotion you need to grab a hold of. Much more suitable for him than something like Hate.

I disagree, at the beginning, his desperation was based on the notion "I need power in order to protect" while in the last pages, it's more like he's using a more "I don't want to lose anything anymore" type of resolution based on his flashbacks.:p

It's Resolve > Desperation. Both can be dark, but the will and motive behind both concepts are in totally different levels.

Hm... interesting they decided to call it the "Origin of Chaos". Kanjis displayed were 始原 and 混沌, one meaning "original" and the other meaning "chaos" (and the latter is a seldom used term that is applied usually only when describing the Primal Chaos). ttxdragon or anyone who reads Japanese, care to comment? I thought the rest of the chapter was great, but their take on this kinda left me going "huh"?

That said I liked how "black hole" was used to describe the all-devouring darkness - I can see the relationship now with that little black orb that came to represent it (in 208) and that you have to ultimately grasp and take into yourself to use. Originally I didn't think much of the term but now it makes sense.

I'm sure everyone appreciate to be informed when the new releases are out, but stop commenting on their speed.

Seems like he suceeded the test or is almost suceeding. I want to see how much of a difference it'll make

Well he did succeed on "collecting" and "absorbing" them. Question is, can he "generate" them? And I wonder what effect would it have on his "real body", I wonder if its enough to make Chiu stab that scroll.

Just thought I'd share something rather interesting I found not too long ago.

04. Ayaka - 52
05. Makie - 51
06. Ku fei - 48
07. Chachamaru - 45
08. Setsuna - 42
09. Konoka - 40
10. Yuuna - 39
11. Chisame - 35
12. Misa - 33
13. Ako - 32
14. Evangeline - 32
15. Akira - 31

Ako being in 13th is the most surprising to me. I'd like to see an updated list. :D

Currently I'd go with this order:
01. Nodoka - 57 (love)
02. Ako - 32 (love)
03. Yue - 56 (infatuation)
04. Chachamaru - 45 (infatuation)
05. Asuna - 56 (Matronly Love)
06. Evangeline - 32 (Rebound love)
07. Ayaka - 52 (Fetish) :P

I'm quite surprised too...

If the order is the same as the one that Kamo showed in the manga... the categories would be: Friendship, Closeness, Love, Affection, and Sensuality.

In chapter 209, Chizame really looks like Naru (think of Love Hina, Akamutsu's last work). I wonder, if there will be any girl who gets Negi in the end, if it will be "Naru" again, though Negi doesn't really looks like Keitaro.

I can't access the spoiler link you posted...(http://www.dotup.org/uploda/www.dotup.org11110.jpg) How come there's 2 URL's in it and one URL is suffixed with a jpg? That isn't a typo now, is it?:confused

It wasn't a typo since I could see it when he posted it... it seems the picture was removed... Not like we could do anything with it without context (but we all love to make asumptions based on a -not so- blurry spoiler pic, don't we ? :p )
