Chachamaru split in half with no one who has the knowledge to fix her around?
The situation getting worse and worse?

Doesnt that kinda scream for a chao comeback ?
I'm still pulling for Al, Eishun, and Eva to do something. They showed far too much of what's going on at Mahora for that to have no effect on the current plot. And really: there's three of them, and three new Averrunci. How much more perfect can you get?

Though that said, I wouldn't say 'no' to a Chao reappearance either.

Compared to the other two, Eva is a tad overkill...

Huh. The Chao one might be nice too.

Strengh isn't really the major point here. We have three strong enemies that are spread around. And whou would soon start killing some people. Even someone who could beat one at ease, would prob take longer than how the other two groups would resist agains them. And if Eva do appear and can really beat an Averrencus with ease, another idea would be for her to face the Master of the Grave. She does sound powerful to me!

Hmmmmm... if the Master of the Grave is Zect (And I honestly think it is, I won't lie), then he/she is 2,600 years old and Nagi's former teacher...

Another High Daylight Walker? We could finally be hitting on a worthy opponent for our darling Kitty.

Far too much? We've barely seen anything on it. We don't even know what the hell they are exactly planning to do.

Also, it'd be annoying if Negi has to be bailed out by Eva again, although it's still better than seeing an Ala Alba massacre.

Chao looks like a better choice, especially since she could have a dead set of ancestors if the new Averrunci are as crazy as Quartum and Quintum appear to be. But I still wouldn't bet on it.

I made a bet with a friend that IF Eva appears and IF she fights an averruncus (my money is on the fire one) that she would NOT have an easy time with him/her. People are still massively underestimating the enemy or overestimating Eva.

Who wins if she doesn't appear at all?

Also, I read at another board (is quoting and mentioning other boards by exact names allowed here?) the Drama CD to be included at Volume 33 has the Adrianne trio visiting Mahora. If it's set in continuity like the Ala Rubra CD, could it mean we are scheduled for a return to Mundus Vetus shortly? I hope so.

Overestimating Eva hmmm as well they should Negi has a hard time fighting a clone of her which is only a portion of her full power. She was able to fight against the thousand master. And Eva isn't from the magical world so the Staff has no power against her. Fate would have lost majorly to Rakan if he didn't have the staff and Eva could probably win against Rakan so there is no over or under estimating her she is just Loli Face Pwnage.!

Although I'm not sure how Ala Alba will be able to defeat the Fates (assuming they do at the end of this arc), I doubt Eva will show up given her firmly neutral personality. Except for the Kyoto arc she's never intervened to help Negi and co. in battle even when they were in a difficult spot.

Is she even keeping track of what Negi's doing in the Magic World? I don't remember if there was any indication that she knew what Negi was up to.

I don't think they know what their doing up there. They just happened to be talking about mundis magicus while the whole thing with Kurt was going on at the same time.

But we might see them poping up in Mahora Academy which will spur them to go into helping? I think I remember them talking about that o.o

Dude, if she learns what happened to Chachamaru Quintum will be in for a Hell of pain. She won't stay neutral then.

^^Perhaps so or maybe Eva, Albireo, etc. will show up to take on the other Fates while Negi, after he wakes up, battles Averruncus. This is the only way I can think of for Ala Alba to win this battle because I don't think there's any plausible way for Ala Alba to defeat the Fates by themselves. I also doubt Akamatsu will actually make them lose. Considering how high the stakes are at the moment, if Ala Alba were to fail, that would be a rather dark twist.

No more Mundus Magicus as we know it, for starters, and the heroes most likely going down with it. At this point, a defeat most likely means certain doom. A 'retreat' or 'truce' also seem like something Cosmo Entelecheia just won't allow.

And really, 100+ chapters of buildup, more than 3 years of real world time spent on this mega-arc, only to have the heroes losing by Diabolus Ex Machina? Blergh.

Not to mention, Negi hasn't found his dad yet. I'd be really disappointed if the series ends without any resolution on that.

So despite the extreme odds, I believe Ala Alba will save Mundus Magicus somehow or otherwise the series will have a game over like the one you describe.

Ah, that brings back memories of the 'Bad End' route in the school festival arc. They had me going for a second there. Yeah, Al clarifying that Nagi is alive practically guarantees we'll see him. (If he hadn't, they may have gone with the 'I'll keep looking, no matter what' ending). I'm still pissed that Negi doesn't seem remotely interested in the whereabouts of his mother, even after Rakan outright told him who she is. Way to go, Prince Negi.

Well the whereabouts of where his mother is they said she is probably with Nagi some where in the manga before :O Think it was when Rakan explained it all something likes those two love birds went off on there own, so if like Colonel said that Nagi is alive that must mean shes with him also.

my cookies are personally on some kind of truce, in which Fate doesn't have Asuna at hand any more, her being somehow spirited away out of reach, hence can't complete the ritual ... accepting that Negi tries his idea first

I also think it is Zect. The revelation that the Master of the Grave is a woman (or at least sounds like one) was actually interesting imo. The first time we see Zect is on the Ala Rubra pic on the end of Kyoto arc (Vol 06, ch 53, page 14). But at the time me and some other fans though that boy was young takamichi (we had no info about Zect at the time and Takamichi wasn't on the photo). The second time we see Zect is just before Asuna date with Takimachi, when Takane is explaining how famous Nagi and his group are (Vol 14, ch 129, page 10). In this one there is both Zect and young Takamichi. And when i saw it at the time, I thought Zect was a boyish girl because of the way Nagi was carrying him and because of his face that seems kinda like a blush (it's the same kind of blush two other Ken female charas has, Chao and Su from Love Hina).

Eva have been neutral whenever Negi was fighting enemies that he could defeat if he gave his all. And even so, if we could believe in chachamaru, she still gets very worried. But Negi should already have trouble to defeat Fate, then there isn't much chance to defeat 4, plus the Master of the Grave, plus a posible Mage of the Beginning being revived.

And while they don't know what is going with Negi and friends, the Headmaster knows enought about the situation from 20 years ago to tell them that Asuna was probably taken by the enemy (Vol 32, ch 287, page 14). And while Eva was soundly complaining about helping the headmaster at first, she quiets down after he reveals the info about Asuna.

After he got confirmation his mother was Arika he was eager to get more info about her, specially that she was alive and not dead as the official info from the governament. But recently negi didn't have any time at all to think about both his mom nor his dad whereabouts. As things have been really in a rush since Godel ends his film and he hat to pay attnetion on the current problems (fake Asuna, the fate of the world, controlling his ME, fighting Fate and his group).

But it is show he cares enought about her that she was an important part of his "dream world" caused by Zazie's sister artifact.
