    Man — I thought for sure that since I have to be up all day today, I’d get up around the time the spoiler images usually get posted on 2ch. Instead, they got posted within minutes of my going to bed last night. *lol* Figures.

  2. Anonymous says:

    At least you got them. What time did they get posted in Japan?

  3. The Curious Fan says:

    anyone else notice these two things.

    one: that we were only shown Kaede’s reaction to Negi being injured, growing feelings?

    two: right after that incident Jack Rakan said something that had Negi sweating bullets, offer to teach him how to use a sword?

  4. The Curious Fan says:

    One last thing: the bounty picture in the backgroung of the first spoiler pic, does this indicate that Courtius Goedel was the one who put the bounty on their heads or has he cleared the bounty on their heads?

  5. AstroNerdBoy says:

    @Anon — 23:46ET.

    @Curious Fan — Negi has been shown with a sword of some kind going back to the early days of the manga. He brought it with him to MW but he’s never used it (and indeed, we’ve not seen it in ages — assuming it wasn’t lost when Fate had Team Negi scattered). So if Negi is going to learn to use a sword, I say “Cool!”

  6. fg7dragon says:

    So Rakan decided to demonstrate a few sword tehniques and talk about Godel’s past. But in that image with Eishun, there were both Godel AND Takamichi. Does that mean Takamichi was Eishun’s disciple s well? Wasn’t he Gatou’s aprentice? Since he looks prety young in that picture, it must be before Gatou died and Nagi disapeared, at least a few years, possibly during the war.
    If that was during the war, could Godel be a member of Ala Rubra? I mean, even if Takamichi was a member, he wasn’t in the picture Negi has. And Theo said “we of the Ala Rubra decided”(when Negi asked her about princess Arika). Probably same goes for Seras and Rikardo.
    But Godel a member of Ala Rubra… Kinda hate the ideea…
    What do you say Astro?

  7. AstroNerdBoy says:

    @CF — I’m told that Godel is basically offering to cancel the bounties on Ala Alba if Negi comes to the ball.

  8. The Curious Fan says:

    What about the sword of conviction he used during his fights with Kagetarou, Fat and the Magia Erebea trial?

  9. AstroNerdBoy says:

    @fg7 — I’m told that Godel was briefly part of Ala Rubra during the war. I guess he was picked up much the same way Takahata was — as an orphaned child (though we’ll see what the translations end up saying). Hata is saying something similar so I’d guess that this will be true.

    So if Godel was only briefly in Ala Rubra, then he would have no part in the decision to withhold information.

  10. The Curious Fan says:

    One question, what pairings that don’t involve KonoSetsu or 3-A do the fans support?

    why is it that me, AstroNerdBoy and fg7dragon are the only ones making comments?

  11. AstroNerdBoy says:

    @CF — I don’t consider the Sword of Conviction a true sword since it appears to be crafted from energy. Eva uses that and it is more like a spell/technique.

    A true sword is one like Negi took with him to MW. Remember, Negi decided to become a battle mage and the image Akamatsu-sensei drew was of Negi holding a short sword (the right size for a 10-year old though). So it appears to me that Akamatsu-sensei is finally getting Negi that leg of his battle mage training — or at least a start.

  12. The Curious Fan says:

    Correction from one of my previous posts, it’s Fate Averruncus not Fat, sorry if I confused you.

  13. AstroNerdBoy says:

    @FC — the actual percentage of people who make comments on any blog is rather low. Even for entries I’ve written when there are over 30 comments, that entry will have several thousand hits. Most people don’t comment and that’s fine. That’s true on even the most popular blogs out there. I’m sure you’ve come by my blog at other times and not commented. *lol*

    Besides, it is early in the morning in the U.S. and lots of people are in bed asleep. ^_~

    “One question, what pairings that don’t involve KonoSetsu or 3-A do the fans support?”

    That I can’t answer because I’ve not looked into that.

  14. arimareiji says:

    @Curious – Pairings that don’t involve 3A are a little difficult – the only ones I can think of that I would guess have much popularity would be Nagi/Arika and Kotaro/Negi. But those are only the ones I can think of; rule 34 would definitely apply in this situation. (“If it exists, there is porn of it somewhere on the internet.”)

    If you’re really interested, you could try searching fanfiction.net… but I disclaim all responsibility for what that might do to your sanity.

  15. Zefyris says:

    Here are some answers if you want, hope all sentence does make senses… Again with my bad english…

    First pic : written invitation’s content.
    Goedel : Yo, good evening, negi springfield kun.
    Since you’re reading this, it means that there was a negotiation’s breakdown.
    However you should want to meet me.
    Am i wrong? At least you privately..
    Thereupon, tonight! At the ball opening at the governement general, let’s invite you!
    Isn’t this an Honor?
    Of course, I’m also inviting the beautifulls ojou-san who are your comrade. Let’s also prepare some dress!
    Please let me know about sizes and delivery way.
    Kosaka: oy, oy, no matter what you think, this is…
    Craig: sh… shut up and listen!
    Goedel:you don’t want to come?
    well.. That’s right, you have comrade that you have to protect…Then, let’s add a special favor.
    Let’s swear that I won’t lay a hand on your middle school girls which are your partners.
    Furthermore, with the authority of the governer general during this festival, I’ll give you an amnisty.
    i’ll officially erase the police’s warrant of arrest.
    With this, you should be set free.
    I swear to Gods putting at stake my name’s honor that I’ll put this in practice.
    Hmm… Still have some complaints?
    Well well… Then how about this?
    (A bit to blur to read it, I think He’s saying something like ” i’ll offer you the whole 18 elite megalosambrian soldiers units that I, as the governor general of Ostia, have authority upon, to protect your comrades”).
    With this, you should be relieved.
    Though… if you don’t accept the invitation, (too blur again… something like “don’t forget that the whole units will pursue you instead due to the police’s warrant of arrest).

    End of the first spoiler pic.

    i’ll edit my post after this to add other ;p.

    Second one :
    kaede: Ostia Governor general… A new enemy? The magical world’s situation is really strangely complex…
    Negi: Setsuna san, please
    setsuna: yes.
    That “zanmaken ni no tachi” skill?
    Shimeiryuu “zanmaken ni no tachi” technique was originally for (too blur… something about the technique being born in order to slay evil spirits and demons)
    this is surely the true ultimate skill against demons.
    negi: I see… This ougi, setsuna san …
    setsuna: so-so- sorry. Someone of my social status is not allowed to learn a skill of such high level.
    (too blur… something about being related to the.. is that the main house?)
    Rakan: Ok, setsuna… Lend me this sword.
    setsuna : eh?
    Rakan: I’ll perform it for you.
    Setsuna: you- you ‘ll perform it? That’s impossible!
    Rakan: (blur… something about learning it just by seeing it, I guess?)
    Setsuna: learning it by seeing it… what the??
    Rakan: good… you there boy… look attentively and learn with your body…
    Negi: eh..? ye-yes!
    Setsuna: Incredible? (blur, something about what he’s doing with the sword)
    (blur again.. could be something like that: ‘but can he really do that skill which is only allowed to be passed down form the Familly head to the next one…)
    Wait…rakan san????
    Rakan: What are you saying… You should be able to do this much too.
    A bit too blur.. something like “if you feel the drawback of this technique, I’ll give it a new name… how about ” the celebration day of my first kiss with ojou sama – no tachi (tachi= great sword)”?
    Setsuna: waiiit!!? (too blur)
    Rakan: Hmmm…good.

    (end of second pic)

  16. Zefyris says:

    My post was too long, have to cut it in two, here’s the second part :

    3rd pic:
    (can’t read what the civillian are saying)
    Setsuna: whawhawhawhawhat are you doing rakan san?
    (a bit too blur : we’ll be find out by the soldiers!)
    hahaha, I put a bit of strength in it…
    negi: that was really dangerous rakan san! I thought I was going to die!
    Argh!
    Kaede: negi bouzu??
    setsuna: negi senseeeeei
    konoka(too blur): get yourself together, negi kun!
    Rakan: ahahah
    Fake-Asuna: not “ahahah”, you muscle-freak!
    Rakan: How was it, will you use it as a reference?
    (too blur: Rakan is saying negi’s injury is just a scratch, negi answering no, i thought i was going to die)
    Rakan: Goedel Curtius, ostia’s governor general… That guy was one of us “ala rubra”‘s followers in the old days..

    (end third pic)

    4th pic:
    Rakan: Like Takamichi, Curtius was one of those many war orphans that we picked up during the great war.
    Compared to takamichi who had the handicap of not beeing able to use magic, Curtius was (blur: someone who could do anything)
    (blur… Something about eishun)
    Curtius learned Eishun’s shinmeiryuu.
    (blur)
    Well… This guy was a genius…
    (blur)
    After the war, This guy cut ties with ala rubra, saying ” we can’t save the world with way you’re doing things”.
    (blur… something about him gaining political power in Megalosombrian, and aiming for a place in the government
    I never thought he had become the ostia governor general…
    I didn’t see His face for more than 10 years..I have no idea about what he’s thinking right now.
    Negi: I see…
    (blur) something about the fact that negi is going to see him.
    (blur) looks like he knows about a lot of things

    Setsuna(blur) that’s really a mysterious(?) old man…To even andle easily zanmaken ni no tachi…
    Konoka: Even though you did that draw negi kun…
    negi: No, I don’t understand either how I did manage to do a draw…
    Setsuna: But, negi sensei, do you have some order for konoka & me?
    Negi : (blur: something about not knowing what kind of thing will Curtius do, about the need to be cautious)
    setsuna: yes!
    konoka: hmm.
    Negi And… There is something I want setsuna san, konoka san and kamo kun to be informed about before(?) the ball…
    Setsuna: oh?
    (end)

    P.S.It’s the first time I comment on a blog…^^

  19. AstroNerdBoy says:

    You’re welcome and feel free to comment any time. ^_^

  20. UltraCursed says:

    Yes,thank you very much for saciating my curiosity!And thank you as well,AstroNerdBoy,for your weekly spoilers!Everyone from the community I belong in Orkut (those who know English,at least) check them out!

    P.S.This was the first time I posted a comment on a blog…^^

  21. UltraCursed(surprised \ 0 / ) says:

    Wha…! That was fast!!!XDDD Anyway, a few comments:

    1-I hope Setsuna learn that sword move…

    2-Rakan’s new name for it was quite original…how did he know about their kiss?XDDD

    3-That guy,Kurt,loves to make slightly gay poses,doesn’t he? lol

    4-About supported pairings besides konosetsu,how about Negi X Chisame,or Kotaro x Natsumi?

  22. The Curious Fan says:

    To Zefyris: Why do you have a female avatar when you are a guy?

  23. UltraCursed says:

    Wha…!That was fast answer!Ahhhhh!I posted the same thing twice!Sorry!Anyway,a few comments:

    1-I hope Setsuna learn that sword move;

    2-Thats was quite an original name for a new technique…XD I wonder how Rakan found out about their pactio?

    3-That guy,Kurt,sure likes to make some slightly gay poses,doesn’t he?

    4-I bet Tsuku-chan is his apprendice.

    5-About supported pairings besides konosetsu,how about Negi x Chisame and Kotaro x Natsumi?

  24. Zefyris says:

    About supported pairing… saishoudoukin between negi/yue/nodoka is still the best :p.
    Ok, that’s not a pairing xD

    Warning: what is following now is nothing but borring stuff and have no relations with negima//

    “To Zefyris: Why do you have a female avatar when you are a guy?”

    Do I?
    He’s a little boy(or a little girl? dificult to say at this age :p ) with cute animal ears and an headphone.
    And I don’t see the point of choosing an avatar that will look like you (you might as well put a photo of you if that’s what you’re aiming at).
    I choose my avatar without caring about age, sex or even species.
    Before this one, I used a fan art of allen walker (DGRAY Man), a pic of the main char (boy) in love allergy (manhwa), a fan art of kaworu nagisa (evangelion), of Gally (gunnm), of the evenkurugan Touka (utawarerumono) and so on…
    Next time I’ll have to choose, I may as well choose Yue or Evangeline from Negima…
    Though, now that I think about it, I notice that all the avatar that I listed here are small (I mean height wise, and slender), so maybe I am after all, too, choosing avatar which have a common point with me… but not the gender ;).

    Oh, and sorry for this boring post about myself!

  25. fg7dragon says:

    About Rakan teaching Setsuna a new move…is there anyone out there that belives it will be free?

  26. Arnel says:

    Did anyone else notice that Jack accidentally stabbed himself with Setsuna’s sword in the second pic?

  27. arimareiji says:

    Once again, Zefyris, thank you for the translations. You rule. ^_^

  28. Philip says:

    with a situation like this, I got a feeling Godel might go back on the promise to cancel the bounty at the last moment if Negi and AA were attending the ball…

  29. Hm. I wonder how Jack knows about the KonoSetsu kiss. Peeping Tom, maybe? Or just really good intuition?

    @The Curious Fan:

    I have wondered about the potential of a Kaede/Negi pairing ever since vol. 3. Back then, I figured she’d be the most likely mate for Negi after Asuna. Of course, they really didn’t get to spend much time together at all after that, though the two are obviously good friends. When they finally made a pactio with each other (took ’em long enough), it seemed like they were getting into it pretty well. Any longer and it would’ve been a make-out session. And is it me or did it look like Negi was groping Kaede? Of course, it seems like she’s never quite get out her secondary character status, which doesn’t bode well for anyone who’d like to see her hook up with Negi.

    As for the subject of pairing that don’t involve any of the 3-A girls, we have Nagi/Arika, which is obviously canonical. Some minor (and presumably canonical pairings) include Eiko/Naoya (the Ursula High girl & her boyfriend, and Yuki/Haruki (the kids). As for non-canonical pairings, there’s some Negi/Kotaro shippers out there. Other possible pairings could include Nagi/Albireo (based off a comment from Konoka at the end of Ch. 163), Takamichi/Shizuna, Prof. Akashi/Donet, Negi/Takane, Kotaro/Mei, Fate/any of his pactio partners, Negi/Fate (wouldn’t surprise me given the tastes of many yaoi fangirls), Negi/Emily, and Negi/Theo. While I’ve yet to see any fanworks involving any of these pairings, they all seem like they’d be obvious choices for at least some authors or artists. Oh, and depending how things go, I wouldn’t be surprised to see some Negi/Shiori fanworks in the future.

    Now, there’s also quite a few pairings besides KonoSetsu that do involve the 3-A girls but not Negi. I’ve seen several Kotaro/Chizuru fanworks, a bit of Eva/Chachamaru, a Kazumi/Sayo fic, and there might be some Kota/Natsumi stuff out there. Other pairings that might have some fanfic and/or fanart involving them are Kotaro/Madoka, Nodoka/Yue, Asuna/Ayaka, Kaede/Mana, Setsuna/Tsukuyomi (creepy yuri raep, a la Kannazuki no Miko), and Yue/Collette.

    Of course, this is all disregarding Rule 34.

  30. The Curious Fan says:

    Oh god!, make the Fate/Negi yaoi mental images stop!

  31. The Curious Fan says:

    Okay, recovering from that it’s theories time.

    1. The theory that the attack on Negi’s village was his fault. I posted this a while ago but I got a few criticisms so I had best be clear what I mean this time. What I meant was that Negi was the cause of the attack on his village, this I expect will be a major event for Negi after all how DO you tell a ten year old that his friends and family were massacred because he was alive?

    2. The theory that the Lifemaker wasn’t defeated at the final battle 20 years ago, I will be surprised if this one doesn’t happen. After all, all we see is Nagi destroying someone’s cloak, immediately afterwards we find out that the magic to destroy the world has just gone into motion. this could have gone two ways, one the Lifemaker could have noticed the ritual about to be completed and decided to get of the blast radius to rinse and repeat on the world we currently reside in or it could have benn that he noticed the incoming battlecruisers and realised that they would be capable of sealing the magic of creation and apocalypse, then decided to fake his death so that he could try again. Final pieces of evidence that the Lifemaker could still be alive are that in Fate’s own words he has been around for centuries, assuming the Lifemaker built him shouldn’t the Lifemaker be centuries old ifthis is true this means that he isn’t a normal human and therefore won’t be killed as easily as a normal human. This and the simple question of who else besides the Lifemaker has the skill to rebuild something like Fate? Eva couldn’t, her constructs are either powered by her or by the energy floating around the resort, Fate on the other hand seems to produce his own magical energy, that’s perpetual motion right there being able to have your own infinite source of energy, no wonder he was called the Lifemaker.

    3. The war orphans, Takamichi and now Curtius, I wonder how many more orphans Ala Rubra adopted and turned into one man armies.

    I could add more but I won’t but before I finish this post I have one message

    To AstroNerdBoy or whoever determines which posts we see don’t delete this it took a lot of effort to write,

  32. The Curious Fan says:

    Is there a glitch blocking comments or something?

  33. AstroNerdBoy says:

    Comment section is working as designed. ^_^

    Thanks for writing your thoughts. I’m always interested to hear what other fans think. ^_^

  34. fg7dragon says:

    Well, the only things we didn’t gues last week was Rakan showing shinmeryu techniques and Negi confiding to Setsuna and Konoka about something. As for the something they discuss, well, prety sure we’ll only see wispers and a big “EEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHH!” above the city, sine Akamatsu sensei realy likes this stuff, like that time during the third day of the school festival, when they discussed their battle plan. Or that time during the Kyoto trip when they discussed how to fight Kotaro. etc
    Most likely it’s about Asuna: either that theirs is a fake and how to deal with it, or about Asuna being the Twilight Imperial Princess and therefore Negi’s aunt.
    Hmm, maybe he’ll ask Setsuna to kill her in her sleep or poison her (lol). But since it’s Negi We’re talking about, he’ll make her his ally.

  35. Thee Pervy Sage says:

    Maybe Negi is asking Setsuna and Konoka for a treesome. I don’t know about Setsuna, but Konoka wouldn’t mind (lol).

  36. OneShadowNineFist says:

    Well, we got to see takamichi in the past, BUT WHERE IS THAT IRESPONSABLE BASTARD NOW?!?
    Oh, Mana too.

  37. Principal Wolf says:

    Negi: There is something I want setsuna san, konoka san and kamo kun to be informed about before(?) the ball…
    Setsuna: oh?
    Negi: I Tottaly suport your relation. If you two want to get maried, I’ll escort you to Holand.

  38. Anonymous says:

    I think the truth is that Eva and Arika are the same person and I think Fate might be her survent. Well Evangeline at first stated shewanted to drink Negi’s Blood when she fought that battle what prevented her she was stronger than both Negi and Asuna at that time she was free of her course concerning her magicabilities so she could use her abilities at will. In the manga it seemed more like she was playing with him than really wanting him dead ! And I remind you she has her powers blocked by the course she might be cabable of creating things threw magic the scrolls are enought as the proof. I think Fate was after Negi that why the village was attacked since Eva was his master than he probably wanted to protect his masters child also there is a mention of allies Arika had ! My theory is that the true Ruller of Ostia is Asuna but when Asuna’s parent’s died while she was just a chilld Nagi and his group decided to use a fake regent to keep Asuna save and he decided to gave the role to one of his nemessis/friend Evangeline who in her adult form acted as Arika but than Goddel who was than a part of Nagi’s team was actually alligned with their enemies and exposed Evangeline as a fake succesor and thats why Ala Rubra became wanted criminals or something ! As to Nagi’s Evangeline I think there might be a chapter considering their parents showing how Evangeline got to meet Nagi and came to like him. Which would not be suprising since Eva’s is deeply in love with Nagi and yet is ashamed to admit it (she has the personality of a 10 year old girl) she wouldn’t admit it to Negi and is propably tied in with the agreement with the remaining Ala Rubra members to not tell Negi untill he reaches adulthood. Eva wanted to catch Nagi and try to create a familly with him so she gived Negi to a familly relative she knew maybe we will see Nagi’s parents in the next chapter. Or chapters that follow. When Eva got to him he wanted to protect her so he cursed her to stay in tht school. And thats why later Negi was sended there so he could meet his mother.Besides Negi means Onion and that kinda pun off Nagi’s name would not be a suprise from Eva as well as the nickname Queen of Calamity oh come its all to obvious haha! I wonder if its that its just a theory guys but seems very propable since Negi had acces to Eva’s dark powers also a child goes always in the footsteps of his mother so ….

  39. @TCF.

    Hey. You asked. :p Those are all the non-3A pairings I thought stood a reasonable chance of having a body of fanwork based off them. Given that many yaoi fangirls like the idea of romantic pairings between enemies (or friends, or rivals, or strangers… doesn’t matter), I’d imagine that there are at least a few female Negima fans who’ve thought that Negi/Fate would make for good fanfic fodder. If you’ve been an anime fan for long enough, you eventually learn to expect even the most nonsensical fan pairings. Think of it as the non-H corollary of Rule 34. If you can think of it, it’s bound to exist somewhere in some form.

  40. arimareiji says:

    @Shadow – Thanks for catching Fate/Negi in particular; knowing fangirls it’s probably the most popular pairing of all. (But I respectfully disagree about the name ordering. ^_~)

    If you ask me, though, saying that a yaoi pairing is non-H is like saying that a struck match isn’t burning. Technically that’s absolutely true, but the time until it reaches that state can be measured in milliseconds. ^_~

    @Pervy: LOL, absolutely true! Knowing Setsuna, her primary objection would be that she’s not worthy of ojou-sama… she probably wouldn’t mind even Chamo as #3 if it meant being with Konoka.)

    @Curious: “how DO you tell a ten year old that his friends and family were massacred because he was alive?” Really good point. Even if it’s only alternate-timeline canon, I still accept the first anime’s ending as canon for how Negi would react to losing someone when it isn’t even his fault.

    And really good points about the Lifemaker too.

    Last but not least, @ANB – it’s overdue, but thank you not only for having a thoughtful/intelligent blog, but also for providing a functional forum with a very nice atmosphere. ^_^

  41. Vern says:

    so anyone think that Godel is going to challenge Negi to a Duel. if Negi wins he will give what information he knows about Negi’s village. If Negi looses Negi be forced join Godel under a magical contract of some sort.

    Also I believe that Negi wants to tell Konoka and Setsuna that he found yue. (or found out about asuna)

  42. OneShadowNineFists says:

    @Curious: “how DO you tell a ten year old that his friends and family were massacred because he was alive?”
    Well, considering Negi has been blaming himself for it from the begining, it wouldn’t be something new. A beter question would be “How do you explain ti Asuna that it ISN”T her fault Ostia was destroied and Nagi disapeared and Gatou and Arika( not sure ) died( plus all the other casualties), when she will lose control of her powers because of the guilt and unleash what was sealed 20 years ago”
    @anon- Under no circumstances whatsoever can Arika be Eva. If that would be true, this manga would become all-out incest, dammit! Asuna, I can let it go, but Arika+Negi not. But acording to Rule #34, it’s out there on the net.

  43. AstroNerdBoy says:

    Eva and Arika don’t match IMO. Eva was turned into a vampire as a child and while she has the ability of illusion to appear as an adult, I don’t think she had any connection to the Magic World until her quest for power took her there. It would be an excellent tale to learn how she came to the MW at all and how she hooked up with Nagi and company.

  44. The Curious Fan says:

    To Shadowofthevoid: You’re right it DOES look like Negi is groping Kaede in the paction kiss.

    Anyone else noticing the trend of calling Negi twisted lately, Alberio did it, Rakan did it and most recently Tosaka did it. Is there a reason for this post what you think the reason is.

  45. fg7dragon says:

    Why would groping a beauty like Kaede make him twisted? It only proves he’s a healthy young man, hehehe.

  46. Forum Hawk says:

    “NEWS FLASH! Negi is actualy The Lifemaker in Disguise! He reincarnated as Nagi’s son in order to rape Asuna! What a lolicon!”

    Found this on a forum.

  47. The Curious Fan says:

    Those were two seperate points fg7dragon

  48. fg7dragon says:

    The Curious Fan said…
    “Those were two seperate points”

    No, you didn’t get it.
    By the way, the raw is out on MangaHelpers.

  49. The Curious Fan says:

    to fg7dragon: I got what you meant by Negi being a healthy boy since he may have groped Kaede but I was mainly trying to draw attention to the trend of calling Negi twisted (see second paragraph of that post).

I looked at the raw for ch. 256 at mangahelpers, and it seems that Negi has figured out something about Asuna being the real “Princess of Destruction.” In the last page Negi says “Asuna-san wa bokutachi no sekai no hito de wa nai no desu. Hontou wa kochira no sekai no ningen.. Koko Ostia no horobita kuni no ohime-sama datta n desu.” My Japanese is very spotty, so unless someone here could do a quickie translation I guess we’ll find out when Enigma (or whoever) releases the scanlation later this week.

    I forgot that the term “yaoi” is often used to refer to more explicit material, not just as a catch-all umbrella term for M/M relationships. Of course, given all the terms (yaoi, shounen-ai, BL, etc.), the difference in their usage between Japan and the English-speaking West (typically more fluid in the latter), “yaoi” does end up becoming a catch-all term, especially in casual conversation. It doesn’t help that it’s short and catchy, and that “yuri” is typically used an umbrella term for F/F relationships (though “shoujo-ai” is still used sometimes to define non-H material, with “yuri” being used to describe more explicit works).

    Anywho, after spending a couple of minutes browsing at FF.net, it turns out someone has indeed written a Fate/Negi fic (better name ordering? :p). I also spotted some fics involving several other couples I mentioned in my earlier post and some I didn’t mention, like one involving both Chisame/Chachamaru and, um, Narutaki twincest >_<. The former sounds reasonable, the latter... well, whatever floats your boat, I guess.

    FYI, negi has known for a while that asuna is the princess of the dusk, rakan told him a bit before they meet again in ostia, that’s why he asked her rigjht away if she did have strange dreams and stuff, and gave her a medecine which stopped her to recover her memory, while saying to her that this was just a disease.

    But you’re right about the fact that negi is starting to talk about asuna being from this world and so on to setsuna and konoka.
    He’s saying that he want to tell then first(since they are her closest friends), not knowing yet if he should or not tell the other about asuna.

    BTW, what Goedel is saying about lending something to negi to protect his party… That wasn’t soldiers like I said earlier, that’s actually battleships lol. Not quite the same. And of course, they will hunt him and his party down if he doesn’t come to the ball ;p.

    Oh, and about Goedel… At first, eishun didn’t want to teach him shinmeiryuu at all, but Goedel learned quite a bit just by watching eishun fighting (that’s why the ‘genious’ world). Eishun ended teaching shinmeiryuu properly to him after a while.

    I one of the people who look at this blog and never comment
    Hi!
    Godel is inviting them to a party (a +, since its plot development)
    Negi is going as Nagi ( I want Negi in a suit since he’s cute)
    Mentioned Asuna is princess of Ostia
    Yay!
    but did he tell them Arika is his mother?
    and he’s royalty too, and probably related to Asuna
    Rakan is teaching Setsuna, but I hope he’s teaching Negi too
