I agree with OverMaster, because the Mundus Magicus story arc has gone for a long time already and there's already plenty of drama and action going on the moment what with the entire world being in danger and the other Fates showing up to make things worse.

I'm not ruling out the possibility nor am I completely against such a plot development but killing off a character now, especially one of Negi's students, would just be needless and too devastating to Negi's psyche and likely result in a Bad End.

I also like how although the series has gotten more serious story wise, it still retains its sense of humor. I'm not against depressing stories, but I'd rather this series not turn into such a story because I like its humor.

Yeah. I would be all over an Akamatsu series that started dark and sad and remained that way, but Negima shouldn't be shoehorned into becoming that series. If he wants to write a dark drama, he should do in another series, not to ruin this one with such a depressing mood swift.

You are absolutely correct on that mark. In fact, if he did indeed want to take this series in that direction, Negima, as we know it, would be over. He'd probably have to change the name up a bit too, and all the other things that go along with a overhaul of a series. Will that happen, no, probably not. Would it work? Well...that depends. Lets just say it would take a level of storytelling and ect I have yet to see in most of manga and such. Otherwise, I just don't see it working. (Not to mentioned a pissed off fanbase for the most part.)

Well... that was a bit of a downer chapter.

Ah, well, we already know a little bit of what happens in 314, so it's not as bad as it could be. And I seriously doubt anyone who's gone down is actually dead. For starters it has been stated that sending a Mundus Vestus human to Cosmo Entelecheia leaves a body behind, so presumably the worst that's happened is some people have been sent and can, therefore, be gotten back.

I tend to take as serious things Albiero says when he sounds serious. And back when he tells Eva that Nagi is indeed alive somewhere, he says after: "But... Evangeline, you... It's possible the day when you hope to meet him again will never come." (Volume 12, ch 103, page 10) If he gets that prediction right, it's a death flag for Nagi or for Eva.

The only place I can think of for Nagi to be MIA without being dead is Cosmo Entelecheia.

I could see Nagi as the 'defeat them from within' type, letting himself be sent to Cosmo Entelecheia in order to destroy it from the inside.

Because he still showed up to save Negi 6 years ago.

Maybe it was Heroic resolve allowing him to break free for a brief time. Much like Rakan could briefly negate his own 'death' enough to help Negi with a short motivational speech.

I mean, pretty much all alternatives boil down to Nagi either being a neglectful dick or him being kept by something or someone we haven't been given any clues about.

I think you are a little mistaken about the various Fate's

The Earth Fate is dealing with the Lightning Fate, and the Fire Fate is actually being taken by Negi himself, in his lightning form, although I don't think that both the Fire and Lightning Fate are going to last for a long time, and in my opinion are probably going to be defeated in the next chapter...

Nah, a spoiler "accidentally" leaked during a video interview with Akamatsu suggests the focus will be off of Negi for at least part of the next chapter. Considering the subject of that spoiler, it's likely that "part" will be most, if not all of next chapter (and maybe the subsequent chapter or two as well).

That's not to say the fights won't be short, of course.

For serious.

Anyway, it doesn't seem like Tertium is in the best condition. I mean, he only threw a rock, rather than a cascade of spikes as usual. He's still a bit crispy, too. Either he was just stylishly getting Quint's attention, or he's really just too banged up to throw anything damaging his way. By the way, I'd love to see how awkward the conversation would be if Tert wins.

"Ah... Thank you... Fate. For saving us."
"Yes, the only one allowed to harm Negi's comrades... is me."
"Um."
"Speaking of which, I believe you are all Negi's comrades... correct?"
