Everything up to the last conflict in the magic world (i.e. after Negi finally beat Fate) was enjoyable imo. But something happened right around that time....
You're definitely right that part of the problem had to do with the movie, especially given the way the ending to the Magic World arc was severely rushed in order to have it done just before the film's release. Had production for the movie had not taken place, I could have easily seen a less slopppy version of the final conflict, a few aftermath chapters to clear up the loose threads (and to set up Asuna being sealed away for 100 years), and some of the worst moments from the period between the end of the Magic World arc and the time skip not taking place at all in the manga (I'm looking at you, Sports Fesitval arc).

Aren't we being a bit too fast in jumping to conclusions here? Asuna being sealed, even if it all does go correctly, doesn't automatically mean a 100 year timeskip. It just means Asuna exits the stage for a while. Horribly for people who like the character (me being one of them) but in no way preventing the story from continuing where it is now.

Of course, if the events of the manga are going to follow in the footsteps of the Xebec anime and the neo manga, then it looks like we're about to reach the final storyline, which involves Negi trying to save Asuna from a certain fate (in this case being sealed away for 100 years).

I know what you're talking about but IMO romance-wise this manga has already finished.

That's where I believe you're jumping the gun. But that's my personal opinion.

As much as I want to believe i'm jumping the gun, until we see contradictory evidence the spoiler image speaks volumes about the romantic ending for this manga.

Like you said I really hope I am jumping the gun here. Then again I always was prone to jumping to conclusions IRL as well.

You probably are jumping the gun. One image is not always enough. Plus, Asuna IS going to be sealed away and she did say something about getting Takahata's great-grandson when she gets out. So the others are not out of the race just yet.

Me, I'm seriously concerned about what Negi's reply to Honya will be now that the time is almost on us. I don't want that ship to sink.

Neither do I given Negi/Nodoka is my OTP.

Also adding to the complaint:

1. This is a Keitaro/Naru ending all over again (with people preferring something fresh in terms of an ending).

2. More than likely, this last arc will Negi trying to save Asuna from being sealed away to ensure a happy ending for those two (similar to the final arcs in the Xebec anime and the neo manga).

Also, when it comes to the spoiler for 351:

I'm going to wait to see what Chapter 352 brings us before I decide whether or not to drop this manga.
