One chapter. Maybe two. Any more is just stretching it out neeedlessly (although there are a lot of fronts in this war, and the next Negi vs Fate we see should be a full-chapter infodump). Then it's clobberin' time for Yue.

And speaking of tropes, someone—I don't know if it'll be Negi, or Kaede, or Fate, or Takamichi (death flag), or even Yue or Konoka—has a World of Cardboard Speech coming. That's about the only shounen-standard trope they haven't done yet.

i actually think they did that doing Mahoafest

My opinion on Fate is that he was knocked that much out of shape by Rakan that there won't be a battle between Fate and Negi this time around. My guess is that we have to wait to FateV4

I think the still perfectly fine Fate V3 might have an issue with that.

Well, only Rakan can do something like that. I love Nodoka's "battlecry" of "What is your name!" =D

In regards to Yue, I'd be pretty shell shocked too after what happened to her friend. I mean, that's some Elfen Lied level craziness there. Holding Emily's dying torso while she stutters Yue's name? Yeah, that's not something she'll recover from anytime soon. (Having her turn into petals doesn't really make it that much better, either.) I'm still going to be pissed if they just say "Yep, they're all make believe, and that somehow makes their deaths less poignant! And now back to school, for a wacky fan-service episode!" Dammit, I want Emily back...

As for those new
Spoiler for spoilers,:

Not actiony enough. She needs to do the impossible and see the invisible and change it to "WHO THE HELL DO I THINK YOU ARE?!"

In regard to Nagi or Arika, though, I think the amount of time between Ala Rubra and now means The Mage might be someone entirely new. And we still don't know how Nagi won in the first place. Just seems suspicious.

I'll admit that's conceivable, although considerably more dark than even the last few chapters have been. Negi goes searching for his father/finds out about the mother he never knew, only for him/her to show up out of the blue and brutally [remove the soul from]* his primary romantic interest...

*euphemism reference and some translation of spoilers here

I think the dark mage (you know, the cherry-blossom-eraser) is the senator from chapter 268, the one that visited Arika in her cell. They look very alike in appearance and he is obviously a bad guy cause he requested (very violently) some "heart of the graveyard" I think. But I could be mistaken.

My guess would be that the range of the book in unlimited and either she's doing it so Negi and co. can read it or her ear piece still works at that distance.

Pretty much her greatest CMOA this chap fighting back the best way she can.

So 278 is out and I now have even more respect for Rakan. He knew he was a "puppet" or w/e term you want to use, but he still went on with his life the way he wanted and never let the truth phase him. That and being able to knock Fate down despite him using that staff.

Man, it really would have helped if he had a weapon that wasn't made in the Magic World, eh? Speaking of which, when's the last time we saw Negi's staff? I know he's a shounen force of hand-to-hand death, but it's still a priceless heirloom. Even if it's probably an illusion.

Anyway, damn. It's official, they're all fake. My question now is, who the hell built an entire fake world full of fake people, and more to the point, why? That's a pretty crazy hobby.

"Hey Mage, whatcha doin?"
"Ah, you know. Making a fake world of pretend semi-monster people and stuff."
"....You could just write a book or something, couldn't you? Wouldn't that be easier?"
"Yeah.... just.... I dunno. I'd rather live there and be all Godly and evil."
".....You're pretty creepy, eh?"
"Ah, c'mon, it's not like they're real or anything."
"Well, good luck with that."
"Dance, puppets, dance!"
