I think mangaka in general should stop acting as if the elephant isn't in the same room as them and going "Ah! An elephant!" in surprise when the elephant makes a noise.

this had been said many times, but worth repeating, this is Akamatsu sensei's story, good or bad, it is his way of doing thing, don't like it? stop reading or write your own dojin story, nobody is taking a gun to your head to force you read a story you hate so much, and keep in mind story can have twist or turn before reaching the conclusion, don't start complaining about things which had not even happen, just sit back, relax, and let the story come to you, in good order and complete fashions, if a serial manga can keep readers follow the story from beginning to the end, then it done its job as a money maker for its creator, its job description is certainly not making the readers happy EVERY SINGLE CHAPTER.
I don't have enough faith left on Akamatsu to "sit back, relax and let the story come up to me" anymore, and the serial manga can't keep me "following the story from beginning to the end" now, so I think I'll take the "stop reading" part of your advice. True, it'll be hard to break the habit, but I really shouldn't continue following a story that only annoys me with each new major plot/characterization decision.

So long, Negima, despite everything, you gave me years of good times, and I prefer to leave you while I still have a good image of you. I guess I'll read everything once the end is reached (I hope it happens in my lifetime. And Akamatsu's), to reach an overall conclusion on the general outcome, ill or good. And if I hear the plot is going in a direction I can actually like again, I might come back before that, too.

But in the meanwhile, as much as it's Akamatsu's right to write the way he wants, it's mine to stop reading if I find that way unpleasant.

are you paying anything to Ken for Negima? including the latest chapters/story direction which seems to be your complains?

if not, you really have no right to complain at all,

so according to your post I won't see you again in this forum? I will bookmark your post just in case you come back to complain again after free reading the latest chapter.

(Didn't I just say Negima is one of the most trolled manga out there? all those people complain about how bad or how much they hate it, yet can not break the habbit of reading it while without paying a single dime so they can come back to argue about the same thing week after week, it has been 36 books and 9 years running! you would think people can stop the self inflicted torturing of reading something they don't like long before that, almost as bad as narcotic...)

Doesn't Mahora Academy have a High School too? I got that impression at the beginning of the manga when they where competing dodge ball with the elder girls for who got to keep him. If i'm not mistaken the only difference is that Asuna wont be there anymore but Negi could still be they're english teacher of Fate in the worst case scenario for the girls.

It would be fun if the girls from MW do visit now that Yue regained her memories back, if would be a relief for her friend that accidentally erased her memories. Even if the Class rep came to visit, it would be a great visit to be close to Negi in her case maybe it would be another pactio card. With any luck she will have a nosebleed like the class rep from 3A.

but you are aware that there are "translations" for the "raws of c345-6" out like for 2weeks now... right ??

some people (like myself) were not that patient to wait for scanlation... they are 2chapters behind and next chap 347 gets out in next week... so kinda hard to wait and simple see the raw with translation first... and then the scanlation is out I relook it again ^^

Isn't a magic disabling bullet a bit too overpowered for this universe, even if this is supposed to be a comedic situation?

wrong, Ken is doing nothing unusual, we are just into the beginning of 38, barely one book away from the MW ending 36, you are just being a fanboy asking for everything on a platter yesterday, understandable, but really... plus, Ken did this exact same thing before in Love Hina, when Keitaro has to fight every member of the harem before gets to Naru, (especially Motoko and Shinobu) this is something that needs to be settle in an harem story, or otherwise the rest of the members won't accept the defacto choice with grace, which is what a happy harem story like LH was, the only twist Ken put in this one is the choice is supposed to be up in the air, and my guess is it would not end soon, it will take a while to get through the whole harem.

Of course, part of my problem here is the fact that I feel that after pretty much evolvling out of that stage (where the traces of the "bad' parts are only used sparingly even in times of breather), Negima is reverting back to being another Love Hina-like story (where it seems like harem comedy is more important than the plot) ever since the MW arc ended.

Yes, I can accept the whole "relaxing after the end of a major arc" thing, but at the same time, I felt that breather volumes were handled better in previous volumes than in volumes 37-38 (especially in terms of story flow).

As for the current arc taking a while:

IMO the breathers in previous arcs worked better because, while we know there will be grand adventure following the breathers, none of them were as important as SAVING AN ENTIRE WORLD. Yes, the Magic World arc turned out to be quite epic race against the clock to save the world, but back during the breathers we never knew it would be at such scale.

Here we know, we know that there are many important things to be done less an entire world perish. And yet all the girls could think off is forcing a boy to fess up on who he loves when he hasn't even hit puberty yet? I mean, I doubt deep inside he is capable of differentiating between Phileo, Storge and Eros yet . This is why a gal like Haruna is great to have in a party, but not on serious meetings
