[Insert text: Looks like Chachamaru's circuits are even more tangled than the last time we saw her!♡]
Negi: ...Well then, here goes.
Chachamaru: A - All right. / Ah - but - could you wait a - // ...aahh...
Negi: Is something the matter, Chachamaru-san?
Chachamaru: N - No - just - if you could perhaps be a little more gentle - / A little s - s - slower, perhaps...
Negi: Absolutely. Gently and slowly. / Leave it to me. I'll make sure to be nice and careful, and get you all charged up. / [aside]this is the night before the big battle, after all.[/aside]
[Period 263: Kiss Kiss Carnival!♡ Episode 3]
Mahou Sensei Negima!
[Insert text: Sorry to keep you waiting - it's time to bring you this pair's customary "activities" in all their glory!♡]
Negi: Oh - did I hurt you there?
Chachamaru: N - No... Not at all...!
Sayo: (Th - Th - This is really quite s - something...)
Chachamaru: It... It feels very good... // It's just...
Negi: Oh, it does? / Excellent! I hear Asakura-san is very good at this, so I thought I might not really be up to...
Chachamaru: N - No, you are much better than Asakura-san... It's just that the issue in this situation is, ah...
Negi: Is that right! / [aside]better than Asakura-san...![/aside] // Let's put plenty of magic in then, shall we?! / [aside]nice and slowly![/aside]
Chachamaru: Aahh... P - Please listen to -
Negi: Ah - my hand slipped?!
Negi: I'm so sorry! A - Are you all right?
Chachamaru: Y - Yes... I'm fine... / You were just flooding me with magic for a moment there, so...
Negi: Erm... and what happens if you get flooded with magic, then?
Chachamaru: Erm......... well... it just... s - s - sort of... / It............ feels... incredibly... good all of a sudden, so... ah...
Negi: Incredible good?! / So it's a good thing after all, then?!
Chachamaru: No - ah - even good things can be harmful in excessive quantities! / You are still just a child, so I doubt you would - ah - what exactly is that mark on your arm - ?! / [aside]n - noo...![/aside]
Negi: Hahaha! Please, there's no need to be so hesitant!
Negi: Ah - my hand slipped?!
Akira: Where could Negi-kun have got to...?
Yuuna: Awww, and just when I was getting ready to jump right in there and get that Pactio the moment I spotted him~!
Makie: Ahhh, you can't do that~! I'm going first~! / I've been chasing him longer than any of you, okay~?! // I'm the one who wants this the most! // I don't know about all the complicated stuff... / ...but I want to get this Pactio and help Negi-kun out as soon as I can!
Yuuna: O~~kay, okay! I'll admit you've got spirit! Why don't we settle this with a nice fair match of rock-paper-scissors?!
Makie: R - Rock-paper-scissors? / [aside]that's kind of harsh in its own way...[/aside]
Yuuna: This way there'll be no hard feelings, right?! / [aside]c'mon, Akira, Ako, you too![/aside] // Hm? Akira, is something wrong?
Akira: ... // I... I don't mind going last... // No, actually... I don't think I want a Pactio after all.
Yuuna: Ehhh~?! But why, Akira? / I thought we decided everyone had to have one!
Akira: I know... but... // Makie, I know you've had feelings for Negi-kun all this time... // And Ako has just been through such an ordeal over Nagi-san... I doubt she's got over it just yet... / ...I just... can't do this.
Yuuna: O - Oh, yeah... Ako did go through that whole thing with Nagi-san... // ...Wait...
Makie: Ahh... // I - I'm sorry, Ako... we were being thoughtless...
Yuuna: Yeah, I'm sorry... I might've been messing about a bit too much there...
Ako: Another kiss with Nagi-san, huh~~~? // That could be nice~~~♡
Girls: Whoa, whoa, whoa~! Weren't you meant to be depressed?! // You weren't
going all serious on us~?!
Ako: Hm? What's that? Nagi-san? Oh, come off it... I'm over that now!
Girls: And you sure are totally up for this whole thing, huh?! Don't forget, we're gonna be doing it too, yeah?! // Hey, did you just say "another" kiss?! / "Another"?! You had one already?!
Negi: I - I - I - I'm very sorry... I didn't realise that even a good thing could be painful if taken too far...
Chachamaru: Th... That's all right... you are still only a child... / [aside]it's only natural for you not to know about these things...[/aside] // (Still... th... that sensation was the real thing... // Negi-sensei's magical power, with all the training he has put into it, was so... so... how to put it... no, I mean... // If I felt that this sensation was pleasurable, then that means that there is some manner of subjective experience coming into play here; that is to say, some form of being with a 'heart'... // At any rate, it was pleasurable to a frankly problematic extent... in future, I should...)
Negi: I truly am sorry, Chachamaru-san. // Asakura-san said that I should try to use this to build up the right atmosphere for the main event, but it looks like I failed...
Chachamaru: "Main event"...?
Negi: The Pactio.
Flashback!Asakura: Chachamaru-san's a girl too, you know? / You've gotta give her a little atmosphere... // ...or how could you call yourself a gentleman~?
Chachamaru: The... Pactio...
Flashback!Natsumi: If you're really worried about it... // ...have a proper consultation with your class tutor, Negi-sensei!
Chachamaru: Ehm... Sensei... // There's something... I've been worried about...
Negi: Really? I'd be glad to listen! // I am your teacher, after all. // ...Although I am only ten years old... / [aside]I may not quite have the experience...[/aside]
Chachamaru: [aside](s - so close...)[/aside] // Well, I myself am only two years of age.
Negi: Ahaha... True enough. // I suppose I'm actually your senior in life, then!
Chachamaru: ... // The truth is... // I have... been worrying about whether or not... // ...I have a soul of my own.
Negi: A soul?
Imaginary!Soul: [aside]hey there!♡[/aside]
Chachamaru: Being... a robot, you see...
Negi: Hm............ I see... // Well, this is the Japanese view, but... // ...are you familiar with the concept of the "Eight Million Kami"? // It refers to the idea that everything in the world is home to its own "god"; a form of life, or soul. A haphazard but very broad-minded way of looking at the world. / The Tsukumogami, spirits of tools, depicted in illustrations of the Demon Parade, are a unique, interesting example of this.
Demons: Demon Parade~!♡
Sayo: Are you a demon?
Chamo: Nah, more of a sprite. / Heck, you're a ghost, so you're not far off yourself!
Negi: Some of these gods can be vengeful and frightening, and the line between gods and demons can get a little blurred at times, but the part that I really like is the idea that every single thing has its own god. / The "eight million" in the name really just represents an extremely large number. // So from that point of view, naturally even a robot such as yourself would of course have a -
Chachamaru: That's not what I mean!
Chachamaru: What if I were to form a Pactio with you... / ...and the card just didn't appear?! // I get so scared just thinking about it...! // Without a soul, a card cannot be formed... If I don't have a soul after all...! // When I think that these emotions and feelings could all just be artificial... // ...that I could just be, in fact, nothing more than an empty doll... I just...
Chamo: B - But look... you've got a contract with Eva already, haven't you?
Chachamaru: My contract with Master is a Doll Contract... / It does not require a soul... // What if my entire existence is nothing more than a dream... / ...created by Hakase's computers...? // Ahh... // Sen...
Negi: Don't you worry, Chachamaru-san. // ...I'm so sorry. I never realised that you were so worried about this... I'm a failure as a teacher.
Chachamaru: O - Oh, no... I should be the one apologising to you for losing my composure like this... I...
Negi: Chachamaru-san. // Please, do not worry. I believe that your feelings are genuine. // Those tears you shed are real.
Chachamaru: B... But this is just oil...
Negi: No. / It is the proof that you are worried; the proof of your distress. // Did our Master not say this once? // Where there is distress, therein lies a story. / Where there is a story, therein lies a will. / ...And wherever there is a will, therein lies a soul.
Negi: Don't worry.
Negi: The card will appear. / I promise you. // So please, believe in me.
Chamo: Right... are you both ready?
Negi: I am...
Chachamaru: (I will believe in Negi-sensei. // These feelings... they cannot possibly be artificial.)
Flashback!Chao: You are an independent individual. // You should live as you choose.
Chachamaru: (I will... Chao Lingshen.)
Negi: Here goes.
Chamo: Pac... // ...tio!
Chachamaru: Mmn... / ...nhh...
Sayo: Ch... Chamo-san...
Chamo: ...Is it no good? // The light...
Chachamaru: ...... // (I really am nothing more than a doll...)
Negi: (You mustn't give up!!)
Chachamaru: (B... But...)
Negi: (No! // The card will appear!! I swear to you, it will!!)
Chachamaru: Mmnnhh...! // (S... Sensei... Your magic is too... strong...)
Negi: (I don't know who decides the laws of the Pactio... // ...but organisation, spirits of the contract, or whatever you may be, don't you dare screw with me like this!!)
Negi: (This desperate, despairing Chachamaru-san that I see before me... // ...cannot be just a simulation!! She cannot possibly be artificial!!! // In fact... // So what if she is
Chamo: [aside]th - this is pretty intense stuff...[/aside]
Negi: (Chachamaru-san is our friend!! // She is
Negi: (And I won't let anyone... // ...tell me otherwise!!)
Chamo: Who-ho-hoa, this is some magical force! / You're goin' all-out there, Aniki!
Sayo: Chamo-san! / Look!
Chamo: Ahhhh! // Aniki, check it out!!
Negi: ! // Chachamaru-san!!
Chachamaru: The card... appeared... / Which means that... I...
Negi: But of course.
Chamo: [aside]now this is a moment to remember!♡[/aside]
Negi: I told you so, didn't I? // Here you are, Chachamaru-san. // This is your card.
Chachamaru: ...... // Thank you, Negi... // My master.
Girls: Whaaaaat?! // The three of you already got your Pactios~~~~?!
KuFei: Ahahahah... Well, y'know...
Natsumi: (Please let me not bump into Kotarou-kun...)
Girls: Eh?! Natsumi-chan, yours wasn't with Negi-kun?! Who was it?! // And Chachamaru-san, what's with that 'maidenly' attitude?! / Th... This just isn't right~~!
Makie: It's not fair~~~! / [aside]when did you...?![/aside]
Yuuna: We want our Pactios too!
Haruna: Sorry!! Time's up!!
Negi: I promise I will make your safety my highest priority, everyone.
Girls: Whaaaa~~?! / What about the Pactios~~?!
Sayo: (Pactios are so great...)
Shiori!Asuna: [aside]hohohohohohoho...[/aside] // Two girls in the space of forty-five minutes? Well, aren't we popular...!
Negi: Ah - Asuna-san, look - this was - well - ehm -
