Father? I thought Master of the Grave was a girl.

Master of the Grave was definitely identified as female back when she was lurking with Fate and Shirabe.

Not to mention that we got a better look at her face this time and she appears to have pigtails underneath her hood.

No, that only applies to Chachamaru. "Go, Chachamaru! You're expendable!"

From the last page of the chapter (as with every time there is an author-induced break):

■次号は作者取材のため、休載します。
※次回は9号、1月26日(水)発売号でお会いしましょう!

Should be pretty easy to pick it out even if you can't read a lick of Moonspeak, and even easier if your computer can't display it.

You and me both

And I just realize that the Paru-sama is a homage to the Millennium Falcon

Considering the different structure, I never would have gotten that reference if someone didn't write down the background.

^^Given the number of Star Wars references in Love Hina, this doesn't surprise me at all.

Ok, ok, so the last five chapters (which I just caught up on all at once) have been kind of cool and have made me want to know what happens next. But my overall reaction remains "Are we STILL in this damned freaking never-ending Magical World arc?!" I've grown tired of it. The epic is awesome, but this is just dragging ON.

...And hurry up and bring Emily back to life already! *sobs*

I think its just how long we have to wait for chapters and etc that your feeling that way lol. If they came out quick it'd probably be more enjoyable x.x

Maybe. The fact that I've been reading the manga for something like two years (I don't have exact dates, but chapter 221 was current when I started) and we've been in the magical world that whole time may have something to do with it.

It also doesn't help that I happened to like the feel of the chapters where folks were just around school, with no heavy plot going on. All the stuff we've learned on this trip has been great (there aren't going to be any unresolved plot threads LEFT when this arc finishes, it seems), but I kind of enjoyed the chapters before everyone got tangled back up in the plot. The summer vacation stuff from before they went off to Wales was perhaps my favorite part of the series. I want to be able to go back to that, with Collette and Bea and Emily included as part of the group.

I have been feeling like that for a long while now.

Amen to that too. Hopefully Yue and Makie's recent talk was foreshadowing on it happening.

I miss everyone who was left back at Mahora, and truly hope they can catch up to Ala Alba's character and power development to some degree eventually.

That's the biggest disadvantage of a multi-genre series, really. Some of us were drawn by the fluffy school moments, some for the harem shenanigans, and some for stuff blowing up, and Akamatsu must juggle between them all. And that's not our fault; the series did promise them all.

Take the latest arc for example. Many wished for it to end quickly and they have the right for it, since there's been less on the factor that drawn them to Negima. Me? I think it's the moment that the series started to actually move from great to awesome, since it's the action that appealed to me most. In fact, I almost gave up this series back during the Kyoto arc only to return when my favorite lil' vampire iced a big damn demon god...

When the arc is finally over and the obligatory breather volume followed, I'm pretty sure I'll be the one wishing for that to end...

Frankly, it's the publishers fault for not letting him do what he want from the first place. Genre shifts are very risky

Well, if Akamatsu doesn't introduce any more crazy twists, this arc should be over soon and we'll get a comic relief breather after wards.

I personally enjoyed the series from the very beginning and I have never found it dull. However, I definitely got more interested once the series became more action oriented and plot driven. For me, the series moved from very good to something special after the poignant resolution of the Mahora tournament (the brief father-son reunion)
