I'm frankly more worried about all the other plot related points instead of Negi's "final" relationship or the other 3-A girls stories.
Right now, there are still way too much things to consider: Nagi/Mage of the Beginning (Istanbul anyone?), Arika, Senate's actual agenda and reasons why they want Negi, Demons' clan (Hermann especially), conclusion for Eva's curse, Negi's childhood from his birth to his mage apprenticeship (thus before being entrusted to Nekane & co), Chao's fate, Negi's 9th spell, Albireo's status, Master of the Grave, etc.

Honestly, if Akamatsu doesn't even bother expanding these points (sequel, prequel, material book, whatever the means), it will just be beyond rushed: it will be plain incomplete from a simple plot perspective. And then, we have the insult to the injury: shafter characters.

Depends on the kind of conclusion here. It could be that given the demands for Negima, AK needs to do something this dramatic to get the break needed for the next part of the story.

In a sense, Negima is a victim of its success.

So... it will become anoher School Rumble WTF-ending?
Please Akamatsu sensei, don' do that.
What will happen next?
Hayate will end soon after its hiatus too because it became more serious Hata expected?

My opinions on this:

1. I'm definitely siding with those people who feel that Negima is going to suffer the same problem that School Rumble suffered when the original manga ended, especially given all the storylines that got skipped over and condensed to just comments in Negi's copy of the class roster.

2. As of right now, we don't know the direction that Negima will go in the next three chapters. Hence, I can see maybe the next two focusing on resolving the "who does Negi love" question (I really want it to be Nodoka, especially given how little screen time she had after the Magic World arc) and his confrontation with the LM, with the finale being set in the future. However, if Ken actually does skip 100 years into the future in chapter 353, then probably expect a number of fans wanting to go all "Misery" on Ken Akamatsu.

You're not alone in wanting this to happen.

Not gonna beat around the bush - I haven't cared at all about Negima for a long time because [tl;dr blah blah blah removed] and I found that it just didn't anything for me.

That said, I have no idea what's going on or who's doing what and I'm not gonna find out either, nor will I bother reading any more Negima, but I can't help but think this is a pretty bad way to switch and cut to end, even with the limited information on the link.

But I guess I could've said the same thing about the movie, along with a bunch of reviewers.

So I guess it's just par for the course, can't expect the world for it.

Adios Negima.

my prediction for 3 next chapter anyway
  1. Negi and 3-A girls make some graduation party.... then suddenly Lifemaker (or Chao Linshen or something powerful) appear!
  2. battle between Negi and co vs final boss
  3. Negi and co is defeated. Final Boss the talk about stuff( what happens on the future, why they need to get stronger). then some hint of what happens on time skip like going to mars or some practicing

no surprise that Mahou SENSI will end since Negi will no longer be a teacher. Questions is if Akamatsu will continue on with a new series that will focus on Negi in the Magic world or end it all completely.

Yeah, terribly weird and awkward. And just... stupid.

Really, the only way I can see this work is if this is the end of "mahou sensei negima" and begins the "Master magister Negi" manga which picks up after graduation (or the lesser option, a 100 year timeskip), and continues the story.

I'll agree that there are way too many plot points left unresolved to satisfactorily wrap up the manga in three chapters, even if those chapters are extremely long.

The only way I can see this working is the manga ending with the characters leaving school or ending on some cliffhanger that will transition into a sequel manga under a different title continuing their adventures.

Unless of course, he is trolling for whatever reason and isn't actually going to end the manga in 3 chapters or has some surprise planned.

Isn't supposed Negi would end with a girl we'll don't expect?
The joke's on you!! If they tell you something unexpected will happen, if the expected happens it will become unexpected itself! Hah!!

Props to Akamatsu if that happens. Got to love metahumor.

[QUOTE=TnAdct1;3984881]My opinions on this:

tnaddict to Nodoka,

honestly,i have been annoyed for years by your helpless obssession and disability toward nodoka;each time i read a biaised post mentionning her out of context,i'd look at the author only to find,unsurprisingly, it was you.
so,in spite of myself,i've learnt to recognize your post after a few sentence...
but,now,after those painful years at aqs forum and here,i must admit that i've come to,grudgingly,respect you and your unprecedented faithfulness and unchanging love toward your favorite,beloved nodoka.
so,after all,no hard feeling;rejoice,if negi doesn't take her,it mean you still have a chance.

My God, man, capital letters won't kill you, and will make your posts much better to read.

Truth be told, if Akamatsu's going to continue wildly skipping events, shortshifting most characters in favor of a few, and having the same awkward pacing and characterization missteps he's had for the last year or so, I'd prefer him to spare us a sequel and let the series at least die with some dignity left.

That being said, ending now after Ala Alba couldn't even win their own final major battle (they had to be bailed out by Ala Rubra, and then by Asuna's Deus Ex Machina mode), and with their final action sequence being a sloppy chase of Negi, they aren't going out on an exactly high note. I always had high hopes they could become the next Ala Rubra, but looks like they'll end up the series being, for the most part, a collection of jokes and people who just can't cut the mustard.
