OMFG you are right, Tamago is in that picture, how did I miss that?

Ahaha I'm so sad, I read all 35 pages of this thread... WHILE I read the manga, stopping whenever the discussion goes ahead of the chapter I read last. Now I'm at chapter 79, last page of this thread, and all caught up.

...Just don't ask me how many hours (or days) it took. (I've read some chapters in english, some in japanese, some in chinese, whichever version I can find, I can read all three but jebus I never had to do that before, and then there's all these (albeit cool) latin terms in the manga, my head is now.)

Oh, and to add to the discussion, I guess, some stuff after reading ch 79:

Comiket

Just been to Comiket, where I purchased a Negima! (nice) doujin. In the corporate area several different tables featured MSN stuffs, from the Kodancha table selling all sorts of Negima goodies, from the calendar, to Mahora badges, towels and scarves, posters and bags, as well as the CD`s (I note School Rumble has a similiar set of VA CD`s too), to another stall demonstrating the PS2 game, to Starchild displaying the animation art. After Comiket I went to Akibhara and saw a new Negima! PC software which looks to have screensavers and some simple games- selling for 4500 yen. I haven`t yet decided if I will buy it. Also Dengki Ani-mag (sic) is featuring Negima! as the cover feature.

No Negima! cosplayers, although I am considering buying the Mahora badge, making a Harry Potter costume, but substituting the school badge for Mahora ?:-)

According to Lunar Scribbles, the CD comes with the mistake cards. The site has a few pictures. They also have a description of the drama for the 12th CD, which points out a few things about Zazie and magic.

erm, i just got registered into this forum like last night, browsed around seeing wut kind of stuff is offered here. So far it's pretty good, i havent done much forum stuff at all on da net. anyhoo, as for Negima, im from the US so i managed to grab 3 Vols from Del Rey. Main reason y was like most ppl - i like the author because of his work in LH. my manga collection so far are Chobits, LH, Real Bout High School, Ragnarok (incomplete at Vol. 10), and Negima (still going).

Ragnarok was where i got started into the hobby of reading mangas (i played the online game where it originated). I dunno, but did the author for Ragnarok (Myung Jin-Lee) abandon the project or something? When's the next Vol. coming out??

Next was Chobits. at 1st, the cute girl image caught my attention on the cover. i hesitated to get it cuz it was +16 rating. then i checked on some manga review sites, and they said that it was just a cute n pretty little boy n girl robot love comedy, so i decided to buy the 1st Vol. i was then immediately hooked on it n bought the rest n loved it. there were some nude scenes that were like WHOA!, but i got used to it n not freak out too much.

Then came Real Bout High School. after reading Chobits with a fairy-tale-ish love ending to it, i decided it was time for something with some nice kick-ass action plot to it. not to mention that it was only 6 Vols. so i bought it all. it was decent for an action manga i guess, since i havent read much of this genre, dun wanna say too much good things about it.

Love Hina was next up to the plate. Looking at the covers at 1st kinda worried me a bit, more than it did for Chobits. But looking at some of the covers on the front had an awards stamp thingy that it won best manga for 2002 Anime Expo. i havent seen this kind of thing on my other mangas, so i thought it had to be pretty good. Then i bought myself the first volume, read it, n burst out laughing more than i ever thought i would be. i liked how Keitaro had many failures throughout the whole story, instead of like meeting Naru once n then all of a sudden became the best of the best in an instance. Surprisingly enuff, the nude scenes, although much more often than Chobits, didnt shock me as much, guess i've gotten pretty used to this stuff now (just turned 17 this october ). anyhoo, LH was like the best love comedy i've ever read in my life because it shows a pretty modernized kind of life situation (or at least to me it seemed so).

and as for Negima, the main reason y i decided to get the manga was because of the author. i flipped through the first few pages n noticed so many similarities from LH. this got me even more excited. but right now, i only have through Vol. 3 (which ended at Chapter/Period 25th). as for the love part of it, i think its not as much as was in LH, its more of the innocent adorable kind of like/love interest. i also like how they went into details explaining the magic system n some of the translation notes (i dunno anything about the Japanese culture really, especially the modern one).

Now on some stuff that i still dunno about regarding terms. Wut r "doujins" "hentai" "ero"?? I've only read like 5 pages worth of threads. Mainly wut i got from it was that there were ppl who didnt like Ken Akamatsu because of wut kind of work he did in the past b4 LH n Negima came along. so wut exactly did he do? Then there was all this pedophile stuff doing on with cardcaptor sakura n other stuff. all i know about Sakura was that she, well, captures spirits of cards called Clow cards because she opened up a book n freed them all. i saw this on TV for Kid's WB a while back, and it just seemed like a pokemon-ish kind of concept (with the gotta catch'em all thingy)

so yea, im new here to this forum n also new to the manga vocabulary. so if some1 could help me understand them, i'd be grateful. thx

doujins - fan made comics
hentai - anime, manga, or doujins that are pornographic. Literally means "pervert"
ero - Uhh... my dictionary translated that to "hello"

Oh, and US Cardcaptors = crap. Forget that you ever saw it.

Myung Jin-Lee put the manwha on hiatus after vol 10 because he wanted to put more time into working on the anime and the upcoming CCG.

To answer some of your questions, "doujin"(同人) or "doujinshi" (同人誌) refers to fan comics created by amateurs or professional artists. Works released directly from the artist without going through a commercial publisher can be considered doujinshis as well. "Hentai" (変態) just really means "perverted", I think really only the western countries adapted it to mean anime pornography, but in Japan, they use the word "ero" or "ecchi"(japanese pronounciation for H, similiar meaning to ero) instead, which is the short version of the english word "erotic". Some doujins are ero or ecchi in nature, which was the debate back there about Mr. Akamatsu;s older doujin works.

By the way, Ragnarok the game is based ON the manga, not the other way around, and the US releases is now caught up to the Japanese/Korean version, plus the artist is mostly focusing on the game/anime right now, so newer releases will be slower.

edit: lol ok I really have to change my system region setting again, screwed up my typing.

That had me curious...what was he dreaming about anyway, so that he'd kiss her? One thing I do noticed..Asuna has a terrible habit of getting undressed in her sleep.

Holy Moley, mother of pearl

The best part of a year's discussion gone- in a week or so. It's sad because a lot of my better discussion is gone now, as well as a lot of other people's. Mind you some crap threads are dead (the silver lining), but a lot of thought has been invested and now it's gone. ?:-(
