The problem with monthly series-- it takes three times as long to move the story along. Lol.

I wouldn't say that. Honestly, I think the plot has moved forward a lot more in these past three chapters than everything that has happened since the tournament even begun (that was 70 chapters ago, by the way).

 

Well, ok. If you cut the training arc with kitty and fat grandma, then it's 40 chapters. ...and if you -must- have the Love Hina arc, at least for the sake of that one chapter that made everything better, then it's 20 chapters. So that's... what, 5 months worth of shenanigans? And now, in the span of 3 chapters, we've not only finally left recap land, but also revealed Fate's secret master plan and confronted the antagonists of this series directly for the first time.

 

Sorry, I just-- I wanna be optimistic. 2017 is the year of opportunities, and by god I wanna see those first few arcs animated. Now give'm here. And be quick about it.

This actually took so long that I bought the free premium trial at Crunchyroll just so I could read it earlier. It took me a while to cancel it again, but I'm seriously considering paying 5 bucks a month just to avoid the hassle.

 

Great chapter, though. The second she confessed, all sorts of Death Flags triggered in my head, and I honestly thought they might really kill her off. I had forgotten the last time this series had any kind of sense of urgency.

How many fights has Rakan had where he hasn't lost an arm anyways

Othinus narrowed her eye as the boy held her in his arms. She looked happy. She looked truly happy.

You know, these past couple chapters did the exact same thing as with Kuromaru, in that they brought up a relationship, teased it, and then just put it on hold once more, never to be spoken of again.

 

So why does it feel like a victory to me? Am I reading too much into this?

 

 

Maybe it's just the sadist in me that likes having Kirie being put on the spot again and again? I dunno, I  think I'm having entirely too much fun watching her squirm in embarrassment. Anyways, I'm looking forward to everyone wearing clothes again.

I kinda know what you mean it feels a little different with the "reciprocation" given and the fact it wasn't ignored by the MC at least so he knows it's a a thing.

This goes back all the way to Negima, but there is no point if everybody is naked. It feels cheap, and it pretty much gets rid of everyone's sense of shame. I also tend to relate the air of modesty in the artwork with the early parts of the series, before it turned into Love Hina. It only got marginally better now that it became Negima Part 2, but I still miss the first few arcs.

Oh no I get it and actually agree haha it's just an amusing sentence without the context.

...hm.

 

You know, even though I loved this chapter (for obvious reasons), this is kind of freaking me out in that this kind of sets things up for a death flag, an abduction, or something to that effect. Which wouldn't be weird considering how broken her power has always been, and how Akamatsu would want to get rid of it to make things easier to write.

 

There's also the talk of "saving the world is too abstract for a goal", and how "simple, selfish reasons are more realistic", which points out to Touta wanting to climb the tower because of something simpler like, for instance, saving someone he likes. And then there's Cutlass sneaking about.

 

Of course, this is all theorycrafting. Hopefully nothing happens and we get more of these chapters. And nothing more.

I'm feeling whiplash from that mood change. It's a bit funny that it took until the end of the 5 pages for me to notice that yes it was probably a dream, I don't know why I managed to ask myself what the hell KA was thinking without considering that option.

 

I also completely forgot Afro existed, good to see him again.

 

I've been hoping to see more of the executives like Jinbei so I'm glad we're seeing more of him even in the form of comedy, he doesn't seem particularly smart but he's goofy; must be the classic "idiocy" you need to get strong.

...I suppose Cutlass is just taking some time off at the hot springs or something.

 

This was one of the more stupid chapters, though it did successfully manage to defuse the Shipping Bed Death in a non-tragic way, so I guess it could be worse. It was better than Naruto's "I love people the same way I love my ramen" levels of stupidity, I can say that at least.

I didn't expect to laugh as hard as I did at "the stork?" towards the end. Seeing as Touta's only a couple years old it really makes sense but still.

It definitely wasn't contrived, I mean-- I don't think the idea of sex was ever brought up in Negima. Hell, even romance was a strange concept for characters like Negi and Koutarou, so this was definitely a convincing way to break the illusion of love for anyone older than 20(?).

 

Even though it still sounds stupid enough to feel like a cheat, I don't really mind. I never cared if they got together, I just want to see more of Kirie acting meekly, so my only concern is that this won't put a stop to that.
