I have a very clear memory of reading the first few Perry Rhodan science fiction serial novels when I was a kid. Thought they were worth following ... and then I stumbled across Volume 461 in a book sale. "No I don't think so..." were my words and I never bought another.

If the stories remain compelling with plot advancement or character evolution, I'm probably good but I have no desire to follow "never-ending-serial-narugima".
I was first introduced into anime/manga with Love Hina, thinking it was at first the best thing ever, then I got tired of it...Then I was introduced, through mangaka association, Negima, and thought Love Hina was stupid and thus found Negima the best thing ever...It was a nice change from the mundane and tedious because it was a pretty exciting shounen title with some interesting character types...

I still like Negima, but I'm starting to wonder if this is going to drag on forever like your typical shounen series like Naruto or Bleach, going on fight-after-fight until the audience drops dead from old age..."Final battle with the main antagonist? Oh no, a new threat appears!"

Sian quotes the alleged end at around chapter ~400; We're on chapter 242 right now...Naruto is at 436 and Bleach is at 346, so look how long each has been running for an estimation of how much longer Negima is going to run, time-wise...Of course, assuming that it actually ends around ~400 chapters, and Akamatsu doesn't decide he's going to run with it some more...

...and yet, week after week I come back for more in the next chapter, and every couple of months I take advantage of my Boarder's Rewards to get the latest volume release in America...

well ... i'd say that Negima have been much better to keep filler out (i can offhand count 2 chapters which didn't promote the plot in one way or another, negi's search for the ring in the school bath between Festival and MW act, and the onsen in MW) and keeping an extensive background story which it refers to fairly often, and a lot of loose ends which still have to be tied up

Bah, screwed up my equation the first time, Negi would have to weigh about 300 pounds to have enough kinetic energy to match the energy of 1,000 lightning bolts if he was moving at 150km/s.

Please don't take manga that seriously. And if you have ever read the Laws of Anime, you would know that the normal laws of physics don't apply. Or did you realize that and that's why you fixed your equation? But seriously, it's magic. Laws of physics don't apply to MAGIC.

Really...Shunpo? Any person that could project themselves at that kind of instantaneous velocity would have a damn hard time also instantaneously stopping themselves without using some sort of opposing force to take in that kinetic energy, such as a concrete wall or an automobile, of course with some collateral damage on both objects too...

Lol, well said, Sian

And Sho, the manga is way different
Negima is pretty much a typical shounen manga, just it has a big harem...

I guess the Japanese are making up for the long wait two weeks ago.

Well , i see that . The anime was kinda disappointing but some part was fun .
I watch the 8 last chapters and it was great now i understand , Negi is Nagi in the tournament and he use a magic to change his form . His friend too . The battle with Rankas was amazing .
Ako is the little girl with red hair right ? she was in maid outfit and she love Negi . And it seems Negi like her too , am i right ? or he like Asuna like the anime ?

Someone can tell me what is the chapter when Negi go find his father with the club ?

You skipped ahead to the last few chapters? You really need to start from either the beginning or I think its around 55, the end of the Kyoto arc.

I would suggest reading from the beginning and to forget everything seen in the anime.

I think he means the magic world arc, that's around 177+
But seriously, start from the beginning.
Important stories you don't want to miss.

The Kyoto lamest arc is kyoto arc, but still not lame enough to read nothing is lame about Negima

Still okei im really looking forward towards the next chapter, it also seems that Rakan did get back up as expected.

I think that Negi will unlock the true power and its core of his dark magic. Like Rakan said when he preformed Magia Erebea this is only a fragment of its true core.
