Besides those things I think there's story material for Kurt Godel and the Megalosembrian Senate as well. The young Godel is so different from the current Godel who's manipulative and cold that I wonder how he became like that. Not to mention that he did try to goad Negi into killing him, which apparently would've suited his and the Senate's plans; I don't think it's been explained how it would've done so.

Also, from what we've seen, the Senate don't seem to be very nice people so even after Mundus Magicus is saved, they may still prove to be a threat. And who knows, maybe they do have a clue as to what happened to Nagi.

^^Strictly speaking, we don't need to see the girls graduate, or for the other 3-A girls to get more development. I really hope we do, but it wouldn't surprise me if some stuff got glossed over when the series ends.

But yeah, there's a lot of material for Akamatsu to work with before he ends the series, and I hope he makes the most of it.

Not to mention how can Chizuru slap a high ranking demon and make him feel it. And how can a powerless Akira outrun Misora in Pactio mode.

Actually, while he may be a member of it, Godel is against the Senate, given some of the corruption that's been going on in it (especially given how they ordered the death of Arika, a person he had feelings for, and the attack on Negi's home village just because he's the son of Arika).

Good points here. After all:

-Given the title that Cocone receives in chapter 300, there's something going on with her (as in the possibility that she's at Mahora to test a possible immigration plan in case the MW does cease to exist);

-Ken must have something in mind for the twins given how:
  1. They're among the students who are playable at the beginning of the Beachside PS2 game;
  2. the SHAFT TV version has them Pactio with Negi before the mass Pactio later on in the series;
  3. they're among the remaining students when most of the class begins to disappear in the live action series.

Ahh, I should probably reread the earlier chapters some time as I forgot about that detail about Godel.

Spoiler for ch 315:

An idea suddenly occurred to me.

I think that the arc we are currently nearing the end of will be the "next to last" one.

The last arc will be back on earth and will involve Negi setting up his alternative plan for where to "plant" the magic world. All the as yet "unused" students will come into the discipleship/pactio relationship with Negi.

It's culmination will be a confrontation between Negi and his dad, and it will center around moral considerations in a rather similar as the Chao arc did. There will be strong "sides" drawn up and prolly some more unexpected surprises.

What I think we will be having is a situation where Negi essentially becomes akin to a second generation "Lifemaker" and faces off with his father again.

THEN the manga will finally finish, as will Negi's time in Japan as a teacher.

Hmmm, I wonder if Negi was always able to tear the Fates up even before his encounter with Dynamis or if from his vision of Nagi he got a power boost and now there just cannon fodder.


Im not liking how weak the enemy is getting placed now. The boss will obviously be strong but Negi is just walkin through them now.

Huh. You know, I had such big hopes for Negi vs. Quartum but then it ended up being... well, sort of lame. Anticlimactic, at least.

At this point I'm honestly more interested in Fate than Negi in most ways. He's the one who seems to actually both have a challenge to face and to be going through even more honest-to-God character development. I'm really looking forward more to his battle with Quintum and the development of his increasingly obvious humanity than whatever Negi happens to do next.

It's no power boost. It's just the power of unstoppable righteous fury.

That reminds me, I hadn't mentioned it before, but did Negi just kill Quart? He just finished saying that none of the magical world denizens are puppets, then blasts Quart in half. So, does Negi not consider him human enough? Was he just too pissed to care? If he's willing to kill Quart, what does that say about Tertium? Then again, Dynamis got blasted in half, too, and he's just fine. In Negima, even death isn't fatal.

Chizuru is potentially something, since Herrmann thought there was something odd about her. Akira's "power-up" was clearly done entirely for humor, but still keeps being brought up as something more thanks to all the rabid Akira fans who are still butthurt over Motoko not ending up with Keitaro in LH.

Negi said Chachamaru wasn't a doll, but called Quartum a doll of the lifemaker. It's pretty obvious that Negi considers the new Averruncus to be less than people.

....Guess I don't really understand how Negi can power-up after overcoming his depression alone ;( Does his power got held back because he got depressed over his power or something?

I must say that I quite like this chapter--my favourite part are probably when Negi said that Chachamaru is not a doll and the last panel with Fate

Despite the brutal beat down, I don't think Quartum's dead. Negi, when he's in control of himself, doesn't seem like the type of person who would kill, and he defeated Quartum without being taken over by Magia Erabea. Negi has consistently managed to solve conflicts without killing and I don't think he has any intention of killing Tertium either even though he's currently the largest threat to Negi, it would seem odd that he'd start killing now.

If Quartum's anywhere near Tertium's power level, he should be fine (I mean Dynamis is weaker than Tertium and he seemed OK for a guy who just got ripped in half) His ego might be bruised, though.

Dynamis said he almost died from the attack earlier, though being a doll it allowed sextum to heal/repair him easily enough.

Considering they mention that sextum had a core unless negi broke quartum's core (which i would think would be instant death) i find it unlikely that quartum is dead, considering how easily fate fixed a missing arm earlier.

I'm pretty sure that the whole reason the regeneration core was introduced was so that Negi could deliver an enormous beatdown without killing anyone.

That's assuming quite a bit about motives, don'tcha think? Akira isn't even the same character type as Mokoto at all.

I mean, coupled with Akamatsu saving her Pactio for later, there certainly can be something to it. And Makie's lack of concerns in life was originally a throwaway gag as well, yet it ended up saving her from the Garden much later.
