My guess is that, being a noble, and thus likely having a "pure" (read "100% human") bloodline, Arika would likely be part of Godel's 67 million (if she's still around) and wouldn't be susceptible to the flower treatment, and since presumably Nagi (apparently being full-on Earther) wasn't susceptible either (he ended the 20ya fight with both hands, remember?), Negi should be fine.

I'm more concerned that we've still got one more group of (admittedly secondary) protagonists (Misora-tachi) who hasn't yet lost a "MW person close to them", that includes at least one MW person (Cocone). Doubt that's going to happen though, as we still haven't seen Cocone cut loose magically yet, and you know she's got some kind of power, to be that young and already have a ministra.

Make that two people. Takane Goodman grew up in the MW, as well. She's also a viable option for being erased.

I'd gotten the impression that she is originally from Earth, just was brought up in MW when she was young. I don't think KA has been clear on either of Takane or Mei on exactly what their origins are. We know Mei was educated in America (and can assume the same from Takane given her stereotypical American attitude), and we know that both spent some time in MW (from the conversation about TTT's MW fame, if nothing else), but that's about it.

...Okay, this is getting frickin' ridiculous. This is, like, what? The 10th time we've gotten spoilers for a chapter, while the chapter that comes before the newly-spoiler'd one hasn't even been translated yet?! I've tried to keep my cool the first few times, but this has just been going on for way too long! How much further is this gonna go? Are we gonna, like, get Chapter 300's spoilers three days before Chapter 281 comes out, or something? WTF?!

That argument is completely plointless, not that I understand what your saying and agree a little but still its a pointless argument since Scanlators can be as sensetive as a 5 year old girl and get easily hurt if you try too force them too release.

Because sure you might get 277 but you wont get 278.

I doubt it is frickin' ridiculous for a -fan- translation to be a bit late, especially for a franchise like Negima, requiring consistency regarding certain terms and the like (and the graphic edit to boot).
Seriously though, it isn't like they have any profit in that task, and a mere issue of 1-3 weeks is sort of short (unless you compare with overscanlated mangas like naruto).

you know whats freaking ridiculous? ... your overreacting over that something which is a gray area (well ... honestly ... scanlating no matter if its Manga or Anime is sitting in the middle of the gray area) is late

@Al103 : you really have nothing better to do than to pick on typing mistakes, trying to act superior and more wise? ... minor hint ... picking out typing mistakes doesn't help you in any of those two directions

Hmm I cant shake the feeling that Zect is part of Fates group in some way, While he was being erased by the big explosion on chapter 267 page 10 he says

"It is impossible for a hero of war to shape the future...in the end you were unable to change anything...I suggest that you ask your self now is humanity worth throwing your own life to save? Humanity is beyond saving Hero...know my two thousand and six hundred years of despair."

It sounds like hes involved in it and he's smiling while hes being erased, Some one who was the master of the thousand master would probably of had a way to fight against the code of the life maker, even Rakan stood against it for a good amount of time.

And what I was talking about Negi being part old world and magic world is since he should be in terms 1/2 Puppet and 1/2 Human so he should be resistant to the code of the life maker to an extent, but if the Royal Magic awakens in home could either go he becomes more engulfed by the magic powers and turns into more of a puppet or becomes resilient to the code. Also whats the purpose of Fate extracting the Magic Canceler and reopening Asunas past, Could it be that maybe Fate could be erased by the code also but with the power of magic canceler live? <.< Kinda seems not likely but in this weird manga could be possible lol

How the hell you can do typing mistake like that? It's not typing mistake, it's either inability to remember proper name (should use something to reference then - as I do btw when can't remember exact name) or just plain "didn't do research", which get on my nerves. And also it's not simple typing mistake because it's so * POPULAR here and in other places. And especially bad because it confuses with other character.

PS. Why people take after Fate and call MW people "puppets"? They are not. Magical constructs - yes, puppets - no. They clearly have they own free will, soul and consciousness. Jack Rakan clearly shown that he is not puppet.

I assume they are using "puppets" because Fate uses it. With all the terminology and characters in Negima, it's easiest to refer to to things and people the same way the characters do, since that's the way you're going to see it most often in the manga. Fate's group is the only one that refers to them as anything other than some variation on "those guys", which you can certainly understand would be an inadequately precise term considering the context. Whether it's entirely correct or not, calling them "puppets" serves the purposes of both defining who you're referring to and acknowledging the context of their "less-than-real" existence (although using "puppets" to describe all the MW inhabitants should be avoided, since we know that 67 million of them are "not puppets").

Geez... Political correctness in regards to how we refer to a fictional group of people. What is this world coming to...?

Hahaha, but isn't that what Negi and gang seem to be fighting for now?

"PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE... THEY LAUGH... THEY CRY... THEY LOVE... WHO ARE YOU TO TAKE ALL THAT AWAY!!!" <--- I can see that line (or some variation) coming up in the future.

Oh, and you know Fate's gonna drop some epic double cross complete with a shonen-esqe "I am no longer your puppet..." line when all is said and done... but it I'll still love it and eat it up.

Oh, I have no problem with the characters having a problem with the "puppets" term in-story. I'd say it's fairly likely to happen, honestly. I just have an issue with someone decrying a connotatively descriptive and easy to remember term.

What is that quote from, BTW? Sounds familiar.

Well, in regards to 'People are all valuable; how dare you treat them like this' speech, I can think of...

Nanoha, Darker Than Black, Fate/Stay Night, Full Metal Alchemist, Shuffle!, Trigun, Sora no Otoshimono, Saber Marionette, Heroic Age, Soukou No Strain, Mnemosyne, and I think there's one in Steel Angel Kurumi, but I might just be imagining that.

It's.... not an uncommon speech. Besides, Negi himself had a recent philosophy session regarding Chachamaru's soul, didn't he?

Hmm so most recent chapter was 278 then? Well one chapter behind isn't too bad. I'm really interested in when the gang will realize Asuna is a fake. Actually that and what will happen when they return to Mahora are what I think of the most when reading. There is no way this could be the last arc so they have to go back to Mahora for at least some time, but what they'll do other then train or do random slice of life / comedy chapters I don't know.

Word. That is going to be one hell of a Crowning Moment of Awesome. Possibly to be followed by a BDH moment.
