Agreed. He didn't even have any last words, he's not going anywhere yet.

Asuna needs to wake up along with Negi. If she is main/first girl archetype in shounen, then she has to be there as Negi's emotional support. Also, her powers are similar to the Lifemaker's, so she pretty much is the only person who can stand against the Averruncus series in possession of the key until Negi wakes up.

Hm. Well, the last time she fought Fate he just kung-fu'd her into submission, but... I have to say I wouldn't mind seeing Asuna unlock some hidden powers, take a level in badass, and stomp on Quintum, no.

Well the whole thing of Asuna is her main point is Magic Canceler, without Negis pactio she would basically just be like some one who can only as you said get kung'fu'd into submission. Her powers work sort of like the GMK but it seems to me like a half and half thing. Shes the door only when she has the key can the stuff get going. So maybe we can see a Nodoka come back telling Asuna how to work the key and then she gets to do work.

Okay, now I'm getting some really weird thought: Asuna awakens, unlocks her full power, and remodels Mundus Magicus Nagato Yuki-style

It might not be so weird. Wasn't it revealed that she was the daughter of the Lifemaker a while ago? That's why her Magic Canceller powers worked the same way Tertium's key nullified all of Rakan's attacks.

That's an inaccurate way of putting it. It was revealed that Asuna was the last descendant of the Life Maker, not his daughter. Unless you're suggesting that she could be over 2000 years old rather than vaguely 130.

Unfamiliar with the concept here

He's talking about a reality rewrite (Yuki's from Haruhi was a recent example of one where she changed the time line itself, though scarlet witch I would think is a better example)

He's referring to The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya.

I'd put a spoiler warning, but anyone who's that interested in the show probably knows this by now:

Yuki is a pseudo-robot/human computer program that has a limited ability to "reprogram" reality. It's similar to the Code of the Lifemaker, but based more on science than magic.

The idea of Asuna pulling something like that is certainly possible, given that she's a descendant of the Lifemaker and everything. That's the source of her magic cancel abilities, although whether that means she inherently has the Lifemaker's other abilities is up for debate.

Er... I guess I have to admit to not really having a huge problem with the translations that are already out. They had some problems, obviously, but not bad enough to make me feel the need to buy a new copy of them.

I might buy for the purpose of having the omnibus edition. It's easier if it's all together, besides my copies weren't in the best condition when I bought them so...

Living with fanslations has left me with very low standards.

I'll pick it up if I find it on sale or something. But for now, getting the volumes I don't have yet is on the top of my priority list.

I wouldn't mind omnibuses of the later volumes instead, the early ones with all the harem fanservice isn't quite my thing .

Dont worry, Im sure there is a reason it hit her, shes a robot, her entire body can be replaced, and being split in half shouldnt even be an issue. Im sooo hoping for chao to show up now, the awesomeness would blow my mind

Negi down and on the brink of death with no one knowing how to heal him?
Chachamaru split in half with no one who has the knowledge to fix her around?
The situation getting worse and worse?

Doesnt that kinda scream for a chao comeback ?
