I was looking in the official site for the upcoming movie and i saw this http://negima.kc.kodansha.co.jp/ticket/index.html it's pretty strange
Can anyone see the name of the artifact?
I tried to magnify but couldn't figure out the name
It seems to me like an enhanced version of hana no tsurugi. Check out it's hilt and it's balde, it has the same design as hana no tsurugi. Just bigger and better.
And check this out...
Anybody knows what this page means!? XD
Hell if I know but if you mean the pactio card with Ayaka it is the one from the anime.
bourgeoisie flowers? or the Homo burgensis flowers -lol. maybe even the Burgess flowers (hehehe, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burgess_%28title%29).
If it is the latter, it is flowers that can make a wall or a city, since they are Burgess flowers. And the two earlier ones do not make much sense for magical flowers. so lets keep it at burgess flowers.
I can only make Bellatrix .... The rest is pretty skewed and blurred because of the white. I also compare to her original pactio, the size of text is the same as the previous one. So it could just say Bellatrix Sauciata. Plus the card is for the people that purchase the dvd, so its probably fan service.
So it could be that the sword shapes differently when magia erebia is used on her crotch. If you look at the card clearly, the symbol is the one they used for Negi's Magia Erebia, and it is on her crotch, cause the sword overlays it. That's why I said she must be pregels, hehehe.
here is the link to the images so you can compare:
If you look carefully even the shape of the blade itself is different to the one with magia erebea.
So excuse me for not citing that her sword looks like it was drawn with some mechaloid shape that I can't hypothesize anything from it.
But good and awesome find jacke12. I would have not learn of the news otherwise it it were not for your post. So thank you.
*many ancient faiths believe/d that the soul lies on the navel of a host body, so you could say her soul is being corrupted by the contract with Negi, maybe due to magia erebia. Or maybe I am over-thinking things. With the crotch alignment, anyone can make multiple joke references and conclusions. But, if it was done with intension, it could be said that Asuna bears a gift/seed of the contract of Magia Erebia user. The awesome sword of ultimate destruction.

Well that swords (i think the name is "Homa no Tsurugi", though i am not sure) is actually an upgrade of Asuna's EE which uses the concept of ME's "Taiindou".
A better description for it would be, Asuna's EE had the ability to dispel any sort of Mana or Kii based form, but the new ME EE has the power to absorb any sort of Mana or Kii based form and use it for some sort of attack.
The info about this new artifact upgrade has been known for quite a while (i think it was around November last year).
The reason it has been known for so long is because this sword was designed by Ken for a game and Ken said that it would be the upgrade for Asuna's EE.
Here is the clear ad scan of that (which i got around December last year),
Also an article for the game and the sword (which was out around November last year),
Note: Well if you had read my pactio card thread, you would have had found info on this which i have post in there in May (with the pic).

As I thought... that was part of her sword. Not her clothes or part of her body. But, new artifact?! Is that mean Asuna's pactio card got upgraded or did she perform new contract with Negi (maybe a permanent one...)?

But as of now we don't know how we would see its appearance in the story (no spoilers about that part yet).
But the most logical theory (according to me) is that since Asuna has regained her past memories and is a descendent of the Lifemaker (whose power is similar to the powers of ME) is the reason why her artifact gets upgraded (also the fact that Asuna is Negi's first pactio, and since Negi's present source of power is the ME, it would seem that it would have an effect on all of his partners pactios as well, in the order of the pactio's formed).
Though keep in mind that this is only a theory, so it is likely to be wrong.
