good chapter... needs more setsuna and tsukoyomi though.

Glad Dynamis isn't just a push over though, as I'm liking his character.

I've got two words for Dynamis:

Run away.

I'll agree with you there, it seems as if he may have to be put down if he's defeated. That or held in one of those pocket dimension thingies.

U- Hachi-bel- oooo... Um...

I think I need to go 4th edition D&D alignment with Dynamis. In that case, he's just plain Evil.

Nah, 4e alignment is too vague, and he's too much lawful evil. Fate is neutral evil (or "just plain Evil", as you say), ChibiMage strikes me as chaotic evil, and Tsuku-chan is very chaotic evil (the "evil" could be due to Youtou Hina, but the "chaotic" is natural). All the Fatettes strike me as [various] neutral, except for Homura, who is chaotic evil.

Um, you're mostly correct. Dynamis can be seen as Lawful Evil, but we've yet to see any proof of this. If he breaks his word of some sort, then he could be set as Neutral Evil, instead.

Fate? Nah, I wouldn't see him as Neutral Evil. He strikes me more of True Neutral, type 5. Ergo, he acts more of a force of nature than a person. Some of his actions has shown him to be this. He doesn't kill without reason, he lets people go (off-screen, that is) and he was willing to negotiate to see if Negi just wanted to get his folks home.

We don't know enough of the chibi-mage to make any statement just yet.

Tsuku-chan? Chaotic Evil to the core. She doesn't need the sword of Hina for this lvl.

The Fatettes, can be seen as neutral or evil, depending on how their personalities and how they carry out their orders. Homura is shown as Chaotic Evil at least, and it's only her love of Fate that holds her back. We don't know enough fully for all the girls. Though at this point, my guess is that Shirabe at least is Lawful Evil as well.

We need to get back to this alignment system. But Negima seems to be one of those cases where the system doesn't really work properly.

You mean they have (gasp, shock) complex characters!? In a shounen manga...?! ^_^

Apparently, The only two I can see who the system functions perfectly on are Negi and Tsuku-chan. For the record, Negi's NG on the subject.

Out of that group only Dynamis and Tsuki strike me as evil in DnD terms. Others are varying grades of neutral. Antagonist =/= evil, you know...

Nah, the other girls probably aren't, but Homura's obviously evil. She was enjoying the chance to incinerate the AA girls a few chapters ago, and Fate himself had to calm her bloodlust when she was riled up by the captive Anya oh so many chapters ago. Koyomi and Tamaki are clearly fighting out of love for Fate (at least until they start getting frustrated and angry), while Shirabe seems more like the latter two, albeit less smitten. Maybe she does it out of a sense of loyalty or gratitude/obligation.

Plus (and this is the kicker), the other three Fatettes always fight with expressions of either anger or determination. When Homura's not angry, or doing her creepy sullen glare, she's copping a sneer. Only evil people sneer. That's one of the most inviolable author shorthand ways of saying "this person is evil" without actually having to come out and say it.

Frankly I'd say she's more obviously evil than Kyoto Tsukuyomi was. Back then, our favorite gothloli dervish was characterized more as chaotic neutral with some...interesting interests...
