Here we know, we know that there are many important things to be done less an entire world perish. And yet all the girls could think off is forcing a boy to fess up on who he loves when he hasn't even hit puberty yet? I mean, I doubt deep inside he is capable of differentiating between Phileo, Storge and Eros yet . This is why a gal like Haruna is great to have in a party, but not on serious meetings
Two other points that other breather periods have that this one seems to be lacking:

1. A fluid pacing from event to the next (whereas this breather period was skipping around at the beginning);

2. There's actual development in terms of "growth" in Negi's group, where here it feels as if this growth is being avoided (save for those involved in Negi's plan).

So do we learn more about how the magic-sealing bullet affects Negi? It wouldn't make sense if he loses all his strength because of it, since his physical body should now be considerably more powerful than it was when he was human.

I would have preferred that all characters who don't have a history of combat training, or real combat, remained as support in combat situations, rather than actual fighters. Artifacts that suddenly enable a character who has had no combat experience or training to fight evenly with those that have doesn't make good reading for me, and that seems to be the general consensus amongst MSN fans.

Combat support characters like Yue (now a fighter, with training and experience), Nodoka, Asakura, Konoka etc, make for reasonable and interesting reading in my opinion, whereas characters like Yuuna just strikes me as cheap and unreasonable in a combat situation.

First of all, Negi would never react ike you said, he is too apologetic to punish his own students for something like this.
And second, as TnAdc1 said, Nodoka would never do that.
Anyway, the fact Asuna showed now makes me think she will be overtaken too and in a few chapters, we'll see Negi with allies and foes rotating until he will face the girl he is thinking of, that probably will be Nodoka and a romantic-like atmosphere will appear until a new foe shows himself or an new adversity suddenly happen.
Or that I think.

well nodoka did use the diary in past on negi without his agreement so she is not that pure... but with haruna and other girls forcing her to do it she might have no choice but to do it
In response to both time in which she did read Negi's mind:

1. The first time she read Negi's mind on purpose, it was because she was aware of him and Asuna being in trouble, with her using the book in an attempt to find Negi's location.

2. When it came to her learning about Negi's past, it's true that Evangeline pressured her to do so. However, this was information that Negi was going to tell to the rest of the girls anyways (with him planning on telling Asuna first since she was awake). Also, it possible that Evangeline may have used hypnotism to encourage Nodoka to do so (as she was obviously trying to avoid using it).

Chapter is out.

Wait... "another one that Negi loves?" So there is someone other than Asuna?

I would put this line down to bad translation as the group who scanlated this chapter appear to be new to the community.

I'd recommend just learning Japanese and reading the raws

Anyhow, for Asuna, isn't she Negi's biological aunt (Negi's mother's younger sister)? At least, that's how I remember it at the moment ^^;

Personally, I'm rooting for Honya to be the one Negi 'loves' because she was the first one to confess to Negi, and her growth in both character and love for Negi throughout the series was exponentially bigger than most of the other cast that I became quite attached to her. Yue would be my second choice, and maybe Chisame third for the lulz.

I would be kinda disappointed if Asuna is the one Negi is thinking about, because we already had something like that with Keitaru and Naru, where the obvious two became the couple.

Asuna can't be Negi's aunt as according to chapter 284 she is over 100 years old although I think it's safe to say that they both share the same ancestor (the Lifemaker).

As for your second point, I'm rooting for Nodoka just as much as you are but to me it looks like the NegixAsuna pairing is the most likely to happen for the simple reason that they're both the lead characters in the series.

Her relation to Negi is unknown, other than them both being descended from Ostia royal line. She is not to the best of our knowledge Negi's aunt, the only reason people think that is that Rakan asked if that was the case, Nagi gave a non-committal answer, and people took Nagi's answer as a yes, despite various evidence of her already being more than a century old.

Well, we can't prove either as we probably lack one fundamental piece of evidence and I might be stretching this one a bit: Queen Arika's own age. After all, who's to say that mages live normal lifespans and if they do, who's to say that the house of Enteofushia lived normal lifespans themselves?

Various evidence does say that Asuna might be over a hundred but we aren't told if she actually lived those years in either a form of stasis or normally. A hundred years as a child could put a bummer on anybody's way of thinking, though.

IF she was in stasis, that's it and Arika and Asuna were never siblings at all, though they would be related.

IF she lived those normally, chances are fairly good.

And we have NO evidence of either case.

Of course, it's possible that if Negi is thinking about Asuna, it's because he's more concerned about her being sealed away for 100 years (with said thought being mistaken for "Negi loves Asuna" by the rest of the students).

Even if that's the case, it's still dumb to drag this type of storyline out to an arc, given how the last two times we had cases of mistaken love (Negi asking Ku Fei to train him, Negi asking Asuna to join him in his trip to the Magic World) only lasted a chapter at most.

Finally, in terms of actual pairings, while I can see Asuna as Negi's partner in magic, I also would rather see Nodoka as Negi's partner in love, as they are so cute together (not to mention the fact that a Negi/Asuna romantic ending would be boring).
