I strongly disagree with that train of thought. Chisame has hardly been useless, being that she is the one that provided a stable platform for the panicking Negi, and was the one who forged the initial plans to find the others. Asakura had been the one who gathered intell on the now enslaved girls.

I hardly see a reason for Nodoka to be found first, other then to appease the Nodoka fans. Her artifact obviously has its limits, otherwise she would have found Negi by now. This renders her use to about zero (because lets face it, apart from reading minds, what can Nodoka actually do?) and reduces her story function to eye-candy for the fans.

It's obvious Ken wants to keep the Setsuna/Asuna combi going, but regardless, my choice would rather point to Kaide rather then Setsuna. Someone like her can go undercover and scout easilly, giving the group an edge. Not to mention her calm, strong and solid personallity far exceeds Setsuna.

Yes, I'm still silently hoping Ken will put Chao back in to the story. T_T

When I said Nodoka being found first, I also was considering her invovlement with the Sports Girls and how I feel she could benefit if she ended up being paired with either Ako or Yuuna (as I mentioned above).

i'll guess both Ako's scar and prehaps to a lesser degree Yuuna's past unearths sooner or later ... Yuuna's past at latest as an 'afterthought' immediately after the arc when they (proberly) get back to 'status quo' on the school

the thing i would be most interested in right now is prehap almost a quick snapshot of whats happening in the 'real' world ... as far as i understand the stuff that have been said since the start of the arc time goes both places, though at a slightly faster speed in the magical world (ie. a month in magic world aren't a month in real world) ... then it would be very interesting to see ayaka and the other girls that didn't got on the ride go more or less bungus because the lost half the class ... and nekane more or less succesfully trying to get rid of them without gaining heat

Actually, the one who could best explain the world of magic to them would be Yui, as she can A: keep a level head, and B: her pactio is an encyclopedia with huge amounts of knowledge, she can easilly look up and explain anything they encounter.

Yue may be a better person to explain it to the non-Akira Sports Girls. However, I kinda think Nodoka would be involved more when it comes to the Sports Girls because:

1. Makie obviously considers her more of a threat to Negi's heart than Yue;

2. Along with sitting next to Ako in class, Nodoka could make the "Nagi/Ako" storyline even more interesting if she does know that Nagi is Negi.

3. Ken has dropped a lot of hints that suggest that Nodoka will be the one that will explain how a Pactio works to Yuuna.

What? Makie? I always saw her as playfully adoring Negi.

Personally, if Ako does find out that Nagi is Negi, then she'll be totally out of it for a bit while Yuuna (if she's around at the time) kicks Negi's butt. I think that there's a possibility that once she comes to terms with it, then she may not get involved with crushing over Negi as some of the other girls have. It can go either way.

What hints? But I do think she wouldn't mind talking about kissing Negi. Of course, she would say that it's all for helping him :P

When Nodoka received her Pactio, Makie and Ayaka (the two main "insane Negi fans") immediately considered her to be a rival when it comes to Negi.

The plot looks more realistic if it doesn't bend itself to suit the characters' needs.

Also, everyone has their favorites. I like Chisame a whole lot more than Nodoka, since I find her to be more of an original, less cliched, character. And besides, Nodoka is always getting a close spot to the spotlight; nothing wrong with leaving the others to shine as well.

But yeah, I already miss Haruna as well.

So don't be surprise if a pair of guest stars starting a flat-chest red hair mage and her yogurt brain swordsman sidekick eating in a restraunt.

Edit: chp201 not 202

Don't you mean chapter 201, or did you get a chance to read 202 already?

She's actually my favorite of the cast, with Haruna and Yue coming close.

Power levels have officially infiltrated Negima, previously with ranks, now officially with numbers.

Spoiler for 202:


LOL Aegis. I guess that means Chao's robots aren't really all that powerful.

Who's that with 8000 anyway?
