Explain why then, while Quintum and Sextum were rather stoic, Quartum was taking sadistic glee in attacking the members of Team Negi, and expressed disappointment that he wasn't allowed to kill them.

Because he's a firestarter, twisted firestarter. He's the fear addicted, danger illustrated.

In any case, the introduction of the other Fates has illustrated how much Tertium has changed; he's acting more like a human and we can thank Jack Rakan for sparking this change.

Negi had a hand in it too, although I would completely agree that Rakan is the most recent catalyst in this.

Yeah, I don't expect the Negi/Fate battle to start (or end) anytime soon. I'm more curious as to Mana's and Setsuna's fights. They might all end at the same time, as a kind of "who the hell do you think we are?!" moment.

It's very stupid to stall the fight's start so long when they are supposed to be in such a tight deadline before, you know, EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE DISAPPEARS.

Actually, I'm kinda expecting the fight between Negi and Fate to start next chapter given what I got out Google Translate's translation of Ken Akamatsu's diary on ailove.net.

There's 29 minutes left between the end of 317 and the end of the Magic World. Given the SSJ1 Goku/Frieza fight in DBZ lasted five minutes (before Namek blew up), Negi has plenty of time to fight Fate and stop the ceremony. Besides, who says that Negi has to do this alone (as some of the other students can work on the other stuff while Negi's busy with Fate)?

Screw time. The entire fight will take place in Eva's resort. Or a scroll.
...Ah, magic.

LOL, I forgot about Fate running in terror rather than fight Evangeline.

So yeah, he's still not Evangeline's brand of broken yet.

Hmm ... while what is mentioned about Fate is true we don't really know the reasons why he ran. I got the impression that he had sorta already done what he was interested to do and did not want to spend time fighting Eva ... then again, who WOULD want to spend time doing that? Dangerous to be sure!

On thinking about it some more though I am a little inclined to think that Negi is not quite at Eva's or Jack Rakan's level. If it were not for the Lifemaker key thingee Rakan could have taken Fate out, I think. Negi took out Rakan in a very specific set of circumstances where he had a long, long time to prepare his battle plan, and even then barely was able to bring it to a tie - still no mean feat.

So I guess in retrospect I would mark Fate below Eva and Rakan and Negi to be on par with him, or possibly even exceeding him if his fight with the averuncus of fire is any indication....

Finally read ch318...and well, I guess normal mode Negi is now pretty much as strong as when he was in berserk mode? I mean taking Fate's punch like that is no small thing...also lol'd at Ku's explanation of "permmanent Super Saiyan mode"

I wrote a bit more here

Perhaps to point out the fact that Negi is no longer a human, which wouldn't be so obviously visible if Negi was still in his Lightning Form...

Still, I don't actually think that Negi will be able to keep fighting with Fate on an even level without using any armationems, so I think that Negi will again return to his Lightning From in the future chapters...
