Fate wants Touta all to himself. He'll just "kill" whoever gets in his way xD

Wow. Fate doesn't even care one bit about whoever he kills, although he does seem to want Touta for something (or at least his head...)

 

I think Fate will have probably remembered Kirie's ability, thus turning the fight into his victory once again... Though "simple tricks" have been known to trick Fate surprisingly well before (Nodoka's book and Murakami's opera glasses).

Looks like Fate has slipped at some point

Spoiler
. Him claiming to be the best friend of Negi sounds a bit far-fetched on his part, too, regardless on what they experienced after the end of MSN. Perhaps he himself considers himself as such, but I wonder if Negi, what with Kotarou and everyone else, thought the same way :huh:

 

That aside, it looks like the Yukihiro Corp. went on to manage the tower, further cementing their status as a global superpower :lol:

Either way, this was a really good chapter. The action is on a whole other level. Now, if only we could get more than 16 pages a chapter...

I don't think Eva's the "bad guy" for something like that, it's possible I guess so we'll see but I'd fine it more likely that she just didn't think Fate would raise him correctly or something like that. I feel like there's just some misunderstanding/miscommunication here (likely on Fate's part) like just wait, it wouldn't surprise me at all if Fate said his reasons were something really plain and we got a panel of everyone reacting in shock at him murdering everyone over just that. Also was I the only one who heard Fate sounding almost sarcastic when he was saying he was Negi's best friend? Like it feels like he himself knows he isn't really the one closest to Negi but that that was what he came to be known s since they were always together making that Blue Mars plan so he uses it mockingly. I could be wrong but that was the vibe I got

Although he looked quite brutal in his execution, technically, Fate didn't kill anyone. He disabled all of the Numbers the most efficient ways possible without actually slaying them. Only Kirie was in serious danger, the others could have recovered but she was ****ed if she got petrified and nobody released her. Chances are, Fate doesn't know her power actually relies on dying, and petrified her because he has no data on her abilities and didn't want to risk mortally wounding her by assuming she can be rebuilt like Ikku, regenerate like Kuromaru, or just be sent anywhere possible without taking damage like 13.

I never liked Fate in the original series (never been a fan of the Boring Invincible Villain type) and unless there's some huge reason for him to be like he is, I probably won't like him in this either. Hopefully, it's not because he's suddenly evil after all they went through in MSN to change him.

Ya know, I kind of hate the idea that one side has to be "good" and the opposition is automatically "evil". I actually prefer stories where two sides presented as morally equivalent fight each other not because they're driven by "good vs evil" but "our interests vs theirs".

To me, Fate is the opposition, but not necessarily evil. With the little we know of his current office, I'd assume he's trying to be a Well-Intentioned Extremist of some sort, and Utopia Justifies the Means. Meanwhile, UQ Holder is La Resistance and trying to play damage control to the collateral that Fate's schemes and the atrocities of Fate's minions create, which inevitably leads to conflict when the two sides meet.

Just brainstorming but the idea that "Fate is evil now cuz" would really tick me the wrong way. He wasn't even truly evil in MSN.

True.. he was more just an arrogant jerk. Lol. Which is probably why I didn't like him.

You're completely missing Fate's point as a character yet again. When Jamal's saying that he's not truly evil he's talking about the grey morality that was ever present in Negima, you know, the way that the good guys had elements of darkness to them, and that the enemies were rarely just plain old evil, everyone had good intentions at one time or another, were just making a living, and the like. Apparently you didn't catch that, because Fate never even changed his ideals in Negima, he just stopped being hostile since he could get his goals peacefully.

True I thought of it as murder due to the way he took out Robo Boy but thinking on it that wouldn't kill him and if he didn't smash his head he could have used that eye beam on him.

Indeed. I wonder if Ikkuu actually has his organic brain still.

Is it just me or something is wrong with the timeline? Kirie said Negi passed away 30 years ago, but how could he then meet Nagumo 10 years later, during the final fight with Mage of the Beginning?

 

Also now with such a shot in the ebd, Fate and the boy do look alike so much. Now it does not seem like a coincidence to me anymore.

Well, now we know this plan is going to fail. There's no way Kota will ever let his friends get hurt, even if they're in an alternate timeline.

Yeah, plus Fate was even present in that flashback from 20 years ago... Mistranslation perhaps? I doubt Akamatsu would screw up the timeline in this sequel series. :/
