I never understood the big deal of saying a raw is out when you don't say where it's out, and you can debate the events happening in that raw anyway. But whatever.

Hopefully Negi's current situation won't involve three or more chapters of navel-gazing while everyone around him has the crap kicked outta them.

I had a lovely mental image of Negi snapping out of it, going all super-mode, only to discover that everyone's dead and the Fates left 40 minutes ago. Bad end!

Negi: Finally... I have truly come to comprehend the Darkness inside me and tame it, coming to terms with all the pain and trauma in my heart. Now, Fate... I am finally ready to do battle wi- ... ... where did the Mundus Magicus go?

The scariest part is a tiny side of me actually can see it happening to some degree.

At least, it's doubtful he can snap back before someone else next to him is taken out, since I doubt Sextum is just going to stand there and talk and talk while giving him time to recover.

Arrrrghhh, the pacing issues are so evident again... Really, if Sextum just blasted them all at once instead of wasting time she'd already have won. Right now the only thing that's saved Negi is she's acting like an overconfident idiot instead of just striking at him already.

>> I feel negi is going to come out of his comatose state with a new technique probably something from the thousand master or a way to defeat them.

So Negima is no longer being published by Del Rey but now by Kodansha. Does this mean that the earlier volumes will be re-released with a better and more consistent translation? As an English-language manga customer, I'm wary about buying Del Rey's manga from this point on since they might be dated and out of print. Oh, and hopefully Kodansha's releases are uncensored. That was one of the strengths of Del Rey's release.

New tech, yes, from Nagi, no. Not that I'm sure, but this is probably just a mental image Negi is projecting from his subconscious. Or something. If this is all just in Negi's head, I doubt he'll learn anything he didn't already know. It's far more likely that he'll get the 'believe in yourself/others/me who believes in you' speech, and then power up through either sheer determination. I'm betting a new, more stable form of his M.E., possibly fueled by positive emotions this time. That would (unfortunately) fix Demonic Negi, give him a good upgrade to his now-standard tech, and offer some solid character development by having him face his darker aspects. (Although I'll admit I'm getting a bit tired of Negi's moral criseses. Crisesi? Crise- ...issues.)

Indeed, the first few volumes, at least, will be re-released with all new translations and in an Omnibus format.

I hope this doesn't mean there will be a considerable wait for the next volume's release.

I'm afraid there is. IIRC, it won't come until June, but I'd need a reminder to be sure.

Thanks for the confirmation. It would help this series to get a decent official translation.

Since asuna can't say it I will. Why does he always have to blow clothes off?

Because he wouldn't live up to his reputation as "Dreaded Playboy for the Future", otherwise.
