It's clear enough for me. Japanese it's all about context after all.

I do want to comment on the so call "Negi's Choice", if there is ever one. Canonrap was right, this is an ambigious ending that is open to each's interpretation.

Spoiler:

as to the truth? only Ken knew, and we can pick the solution we like, which is what an open ending is all about. you can pick the bad end and torture yourself, or you can pick the good end and sleep on it. so what are you, S or M?

PS
the biggest thing for me is not Negi's choice, or the unexpected guest, but
Spoiler:
gaiden materials abound.

I'm somewhat amazed it ended. I still remember starting it in middle school. Hugely disappointing ending. Wish he'd had at least given a resolution to who he ends up with, not this open ending bullshit.

Comprehensive feelings: I like the ending. No really, I like the ending as a whole. Despite all the loose ends, Akamatsu managed to finish the story on a relatively clean note. That I have to give it to him.

What I don't like as a fangirl are the ambiguouity of the Konoka/Setsuna situation (I mean seriously, couldn't you have done something a bit more revealing, Ken-san?) and what became of Chisame (come on, that's too cruel a fate for a cute girl like her, she deserves better).

Still, overall, it was a satisfactory ending. I would have to say my basic faith in him did not suffer.

I doubt he could have made it less ambiguous. Remember that as a shounen manga, it has to abide to the "Tokyo Metropolitan Ordinance Regarding the Healthy Development of Youths" law.

5. Magia Erebea effect were only left to speculation for the characters, so it isn't surprising Negi become immortal-like, but still mortal in the end. After all, the transformation process wasn't the same as Eva's.
8. Not really necessary since it was hinted long before that Konoka would just need more power. Since it was already shown quickly in the different timeline portion, it is "covered". The question wasn't "if they will manage it", but rather "when".

That said, we can also add others points:
-Master of the Gravekeepers' Palace
-Actual origin and motives of the Lifemaker (after all, we only know Kosmo Entelecheia objective. LM objective was probably different before he settled mars, before warping into the way he became I think).
-Original plan of the Megalomesembria senate (since it was heavy implied by Kurt that the senate were the ones behind Hermann's group attack)
-Demon's cast (Hermann, Mana's origins, and especially Zazie and her sister)
-Chao's actual plight (world crisis hardly matches Mana's description of "it happens all the time")
-Chizuru's involvement to Negi's heavy schedule (since it was the reason why she got a pactio)
-Satsuki's real involvement regarding Magic stuff (unless Akamatsu was just doing some red herring)
-Fuka and Fumika's pactio


There are probably more loose ends in the lot.
Well, these still haven't been answered. Plus, some of mine aren't answered as well:
1. Negi's father, where he is, what does he have to do with the Lifemaker (is he possessed by the Lifemaker?)
2. The Lifemaker (What happened to him? Is he still alive? Did Negi and Asuna kill him with that sword slash (very anti-climatic if so)? Where is he?)

The closest we get to an answer for these two is just that Nagi's been "freed" from the Lifemaker thanks to Nagi and his comrades. No explanation as to why Nagi asked Negi to kill him, though.

3. What happened to and where is Arika?
4. The origin of Ako's scar?

Oh, and we never got to find out who Negi was interested in. In the popular webcomic "8-bit Theater", the character Black Mage says "That's it, I've had enough. This whole g-----n adventure has been nothing but pointless build ups toward pay offs that never happen." I think this can also be applied to Negima. The difference is, in "8-bit Theater", it's humorous and a major theme of the webcomic, and plot points still end up resolved by the end of the story. Not so with Negima.

I expected this kind of ending ever since chapter 1: Negi doesn't end up with anyone.

Lets use a point ranking system for this finale, we will start with 0 points:
+1 Pretty color first page
+3 adult Nodoka is lovely
-10 NAGI OUT OF FUCKING NOWHERE!
+1 Nagi being Nagi
-1 The twins are the biggest sluts in the series now
-20 Nagi rescued off screen
-15 Nodoka end denied hard
+5 Implied marriage between Konoka and Setsuna
+2 Long haired Ako is <3
+2 Holy shit the twins turned out pretty hot after all
-15 HOW DARE YOU TURN CHISAME FULL HIKKI AKAMATSU! OVER THE FUCKING LINE!
+5 Chachamaru was getting wound up by Negi daily
+2 Eva lives on happily
-10 No mention of Negi's mother
-10 No mention of who that other girl who looked related to Negi in MW was
-10 No mention on who the one Negi liked was (no it wasnt Yue)
-10 Everything else left unexplained that at this point I cant think about

Overall: -80

I had this manga at 9/10, dropping it to 8/10 because it managed to be a great manga for 90% of its run. Also a big congratulations to Ken Akamatsu, sir...you managed to create an ending to a manga even shittier than CLAMP, that takes skill right there. If you are planning some form of sequel of spin-off that will cover the missing content then I will be more forgiving of this, but if not...well

SCREW YOU KEN AKAMATSU!

I didn't like how it ended. To be honest, for a manga that run for so long I was expecting to have a proper closure. Like somebody already said, the end felt like it was rushed and some of the scenes are just plain ridiculous. I hope there's more...and did they ever say who Negi ended up to? Or is he bound to be a bachelor forever?
