  1. Lol fate came to the ball haha

    I wonder will he be accompanying Negi Group that would be good lol. I can’t wait for Negi’s reaction I wonder will he bring the real Asuna LOL

  2. Blogima says:

    His name is Rakan! Jack Rakan! XD

    Really, I was unsure that Akamatsu would put Fate (teen version) as another high point to the ball, so, I think we have two options:

    1. Rakan stops Fate right there, which is pratical, but pretty dull for the plot;
    2. They reach on a term and go to the ball.

    Well, the second look like more certain…

  3. AstroNerdBoy says:

    Somehow, I suspect that Fate won’t in fact cause any problems — call it being there under a flag of truce or something like that. I could be very wrong though.

    Why oh why is Setsuna dressed like a man! NOOOOOOO!

  5. AstroNerdBoy says:

    I was hoping for Setsuna in a nice dress as well. I’m guessing that with all this yuri/shoujo-ai element between Setsuna and Konoka, Akamatsu-sensei wanted to show who would wear the pants in that relationship. Another possibility is that Setsuna is wearing what she feels will be easier to fight in, even though she showed she could fight in a dress with little problem.

  6. fg7dragon says:

    It’s possible that the Fate we see here is from Rakan’s memory. If you look at the last pic, it shows the Ala Rubra also dressed for a Ball.
    As for the fact that Mundus Magicus is actualy Mars, well, It seems that Negi finaly realised why Chao said that she was a martian. Also, from his worried face, he belives that the event Chao wanted to change has somethin to do with Fate’s curent operations.

  7. Astrojensen says:

    Wow! Seems we will get some much-needed info on Mars as well as Chao! can’t wait ’till wednesday!

  8. The Curious Fan says:

    Since it is possible that Fate and Jack Rakan will have a discussion or a fight in the next few chapters I decided to do a quick recap of everything we know about Fate and Jack Rakan.

    First off Fate, we know he is a construct, he has been around for several hundred years in his own words (see Nodoka’s diary chapter 229), he has a high level of mastery of stone and water magic, he once served (and may still serve) under the Lifemaker, he has dueled Nagi one-on-one on at least two occasions, the first being the final battle of the war twenty years ago and the second occasion being ten years ago (manga time). His personality seems to be the kind of person who is completely emotionless since the only signs of emotion shown so far are fear inspired by Nagi’s attacks during the final battle 20 years ago and anger when Negi struck him in Kyoto and while watching the NegivsRakan match. Personally I think his personality is the kind of person/construct that is bored with the universe after all the only people who have managed to make him show any form of emotion are Negi and Nagi who incidentally are the only ones who have perked his interest.

    One final point about Fate, there is the line “It would be troubling to let you die” to theorise about.

    I know I said up the top that this would be a recap of Fate and Jack Rakan’s personalities I am too sleepy to attempt a recap of Jack Rakan.

  9. arimareiji says:

    “Akamatsu-sensei wanted to show who would wear the pants in that relationship.”

    Ehhhhh, I still think that Konoka is the seme regardless of who’s more butch. But that’s just my opinion.

    So is it just me, or does it look like Mars literally is the magical world after all? Bonus points on the background Chao image(s?).

  10. Zefyris says:

    This is not fate, but the construct that was here 20 years ago, looks like he’s still alive.
    What rakan is saying let little to no doubt about it.
    The construct is saying “this is surprising to found you here, I thought you were the kind of person that didn’t care about this world”.
    And then rakan answers ” well, I don’t really care about this world, but … Things that were left not wiped on my ass, I’ll wipe them myself”
    And what the construct is saying to himself before this too, doesn’t really look like the kind of words fate is usually saying.
    he is pitying the citizens of this world, and that pityfull & ephemeral life they have, about them being “constructed doll” or something like that…

  11. AstroNerdBoy says:

    Hmmm…looks like the rumors that Jack may die could come true now that I think about it. ^_^;

  12. Anonymous says:

    i love how setsuna wears a suit while konoka wears a dress. akamatsu-sensei probably did this to establish that setsuna is more boyish than konoka (we already know this) and to show us how かつこいい setsuna is. i’m pretty sure kaede is going wear a suit too. they both just look color that way.

    i must say, fate looks quite handsome as a teenager. lol

  13. fg7dragon says:

    I think Nodoka is teling them about the ruins she saw so far and something about the passing of time. Something about the landscape being more eroded on the Mars they know (and therefore the possibility the time-traveled through the Gate).
    The Curious Fan said :”he has dueled Nagi one-on-one on at least two occasions”.
    At least three ocasions. 20 years ago, he also fought Nagi when he framed the Ala Rubra.

  14. AstroNerdBoy says:

    Well, if time travel is an element, it would explain a time issue in regards to my thought that Fate originated from the Spider-Zero program in “A.I. Love You.”

  15. Anonymous says:

    I guess Chisame is goign to stay in her child self rather than her teenage self. I wonder why.

  16. Zefyris says:

    “I think Nodoka is teling them about the ruins she saw so far and something about the passing of time.”
    Nope, she’s talking about the research she did before going to the magical world with yue.
    Looks like she did know about the place of the magical world all along, and the true nature of this world.
    That is to say, somehow a sort of magicaly enclosed space that they call isekai (different world, other world), overlaping the real mars.

    Since yue lost her memory however, only nodoka have memory of this research.

    At least this is what I understand from that blured text.

    Sorry to burst the time travel bubble. But Mars will not look like earth no matter how far you travel in time. A Mars day is only slightly longer than an earth day, but gravity is only 1/3, there are no oceans, and the atmospheric pressure is no more than 1/150.

    I rather speculate the magic world is similar to Eva’s resort.

  18. fg7dragon says:

    Anon,
    The reason Mars has lower gravity then Earth is because the magma inside Mars has cooled down and became solid. Plus, Mars is smaler then earth so this also afects Day duration.
    But let’s not forget this is a MANGA ABOUT MAGIC, so no mater how much real data you put in it, it is still just fantasy. Anything can happen!

  19. CR says:

    fg7dragon,

    The reason Mars has lower gravity is because it has less mass. Needless to say, cooling and solidification of magma does not affect this part.

    However, it does affect things like magnetic field generation is indeed affected by this (at least according to modern theory). Since Mars doesn’t appear to have a magnetic field but rock polarization indicate it used to have one, Mars’s former liquid core has probably solidified.

  20. Philip says:

    looked at Haruna in that one pic… now my eyes could be fooling me, but she looks like an adult. Then again, that probably just the normal Haruna…

  21. mastermack0 says:

    last I checked, they were living on floating islands. Let’s not talk about gravity in that case. I’m sure we’ll hear something from Ken.

    Well, Chao does mention that 100 years from the time of the Mahora Festival Arc, Mars will become a world habitable to humans. Terraforming is at least theoretically possible (there are a number of proposals out there for it), but expensive.

    That doesn’t explain the difference in gravity, though, so it looks like the “time travel” hypothesis is out unless they somehow used either magic or some type of super-science to induce an Earth-like gravity on Mars.

    It makes you wonder why Chao would even bring up the comment about Mars’ future habitability, though, if Mundus Magicus is simply a magical construct existing on Mars at the same time as Earth.

  23. Anonymous says:

    woah totally unexpected from my point of wiew man gotta say i’m quiet surprised. fate in teen mode nagi/negi compare scene haha awsome well well got to have at the least one more plot twist now that at the least 3-4 plot twists are goon.

  24. Pong says:

    The best part of the spoiler is the last pic. LOL at Rakan having flashback. So apparently Negi and Asuna interact the same way Nagi and Arika did… it’s like Akamtasu given up on being subtel completly.

  25. Fate can order from Mahou.net, too, so maybe he has a bottle of age-changing pills. Why bother to learn such a trivial spell?

    As to why Chisame is a chibineko, I can think of two reasons:

    (1) She’s more cautious than the others; she’s not trusting Godel’s word, so she retains her disguise.

    or

    (2) By the time she fought her way to the dress rack, only child sizes were left.

  26. Anonymous says:

    In the 7th spoiler, it seems like Jack is comparing Negi and Asuna’s ‘relationship’ to Nagi and Arika’s………..
    Interesting~

  27. Anonymous says:

    In terms of Setsuna wearing a suit, I think we may be reading a little too much into it. Before (like with the last fate vs. Negi meeting) Setsuna was also wearing suits and it seemed to work really well for practical reasons (can any of you see her fighting in a dress). Kaede also I agree probably won’t be decked out in a dress just because if the fighting starts dress=easy pickings, whereas suits=badass counterattack.

  28. I think Setsuna wearing a suit looks better, then again the panel with her standing next to Konoka who is in a fancy dress looks way to cute >_< Any way More plot twists and more questions that are popping up

  29. arimareiji says:

    Random thought wrt fighting in a suit or fighting in a dress – does it really matter? ^_~

    It seems like these days once a fight starts, the average girl only remains clothed for 17 seconds. Less, if their opponent has tentacles.

  30. The Curious Fan says:

    Anyone else notice that Kaede was blushing after Haruna revealed that Magic world=Mars?

  31. jean says:

    @The Curious Fan
    Eh… why would she?
    She is in love with Mars? 😮

    Anyway… i think you guys are overthinking things, the best thing to do is to wait and see. 😀

    And… i really don’t care about Setsuna and Konoka being yuri/shoujo-ai… i think it’s cool, they are cute and all, they seem to like ( in various ways ).

    And i wonder what happed to our little and forgotten friend, Asuna, wich can be dead right now ( yeah, her brain maybe went BOOM after so much information, right?

    One last thing, and the only one that makes sense in this comment : please forgive me for any english problems… maybe you can see, but i’m not american nor i do live in a country that speak english, so if you see anything wrong with my comment, please tell me and help me to improve 🙂

    Have a nice day.

  32. laclongquan says:

    It seem Akamatsu using the model Multi-World, separate universes stay alongside eachother with difference in physic and metaphysic. Magic World is Mars, so when Earth knew about that, plus the fusion of science-magic, the colonization of Mars naturally progress.

    As for Chisame, dont forget: once an cosplayer, always a cosplayer. The point about her being cautious is true, too.

    The library duo investigated and gained an inkling on Magic World is true too. Especially with Yue’s artifact. We lack only Chisame joining force with them, which is a shame. then again, Chisame’s ability is more like cyber attack/defense, not investigation (it can be, but her mind dont go that way).

  33. fg7dragon says:

    No, she wasn’t blushing. That’s her usual face when she doesn’t understand something. Baka Blue, what can I say?

  34. Anonymous says:

    whoa u r right hahhahahaha kaede blushing must be a first or was it…s.e..cond maybe second well who cares anyway man gotta admit this ch will be totally unique hehe.

  35. I wonder will Evangeline appear on the ball yea and what happened to Asuna its really to long for her to not appear and I wonder what will happen with the spy if the real Asuna appears

  36. Anonymous says:

    hey did anyone notice the second last pict how much chao and konoka look like each other maybe negi will marry konoka in the future it is quiet possible consider both of there status’s i mean konoka is eishun’s(war hero) dauther and negi is son to nagi(war hero) and arica(princess of ostia).

  37. Anonymous says:

    Well, it’ll be interesting if the older Fate and aged up “Nagi” meet at the ball. I’m sure that Akatmatsu-sensei’s gonna do this, considering that he’ll get almost killed by all the yaoi fangirls if he doesn’t.

  38. Drew says:

    “hey did anyone notice the second last pict how much chao and konoka look like each other maybe negi will marry konoka in the future”

    No. Konoka belongs to Setsuna. >( Also, looks like Rakan is comparing to Negi and Asuna’s relationship to that of Negi and Akira’s. =0

    (They aren’t related, as much as people would like to think that they are.)

  39. Anonymous says:

    They might be related still, but that doesn’t mean their relationship is moot. It’s a manga, seriously.

    hey man it was sporre off the moment thing nothing serius intended but it still is possible man u don’t have to be do damn serius about every last detail that u think is wrong.
    sorry but get it into your head that everyone has there own train off thoughts(every one has there own idea of how things should be) u and i are no diffrent:).

  41. xkyohimex says:

    When I see Setsuna and Konoka picture, they look like they were getting married. LOL. Konoka looks so beautiful, the dress looks nice on her. And they seem older too. Would be nice if they kiss again.

    Negi will end up with Asuna. Come on! it’s a given, it’s just like Keitaro with Naru.

  42. Anonymous says:

    Konoka and Setsuna will be co-wives of Negi along with Asuna, Yue, Nodoka, Kaede, Chisame, and every other girl he’s currently pactio’d with or will pactio with. Ken-sama is going to create the ultimate harem! However, when it is not their turn to be with Negi, Konoka and Setsuna will be free to do “whatever.” >:-}

  43. lol guys I think Negi will end up with Asuna but that will be long after the manga ends and hence I think the Manga nor anime will never show us. I just can’t wait till the chapter is translaited Im just interested in whats going on the ball

  44. Anonymous says:

    man just because naru ended up with keitaro do not necessarily mean that the same will happen with negi and asuna, just wait and see ken-sama is known for beging repulsive and unexpecting about things that have with manga to do.
    that is the main reason so many people like his work(s):)

  45. fg7dragon says:

    If he ends up with Zazie, that would be the most unexpected.

  46. arimareiji says:

    from Anonymous: “just because naru ended up with keitaro do not necessarily mean that the same will happen with negi and asuna”

    Couldn’t agree more; several things change the dynamics of the harem.

    First, Nodoka/Shinobu: Nodoka is definitely not the type to give up easily. She hasn’t been relegated to babysitter/maid status. She has friends who spur her on rather than discourage her. When “Priest” Misora asked Negi who he liked… he only blushed when he thought about Nodoka. And I can’t remember where, but I believe I’ve read that Akamatsu-sensei said that he liked Shinobu best and didn’t think he’d done her justice.

    Second, there is no Kitsune. That might seem unimportant, but Kitsune pushed Naru into acknowledging her true feelings more than once – without her influence, Keitaro well might have wound up with erer… Mutsumi. (I’m trying not to be too obvious in my bias. ^_~) For that matter, Naru gets the vast bulk of the encouragement in Love Hina. How often does Asuna get encouraged rather than teased?

    Third, although this might seem like a silly distinction – who does Negi repeatedly snuggle semi-naked? Almost always Asuna. Who did Keitaro repeatedly snuggle semi-naked? Mutsumi, not Naru. Personally, I think the proto-sexual contact Negi has with pretty much everyone but Nodoka carries the same tone of “a trial to be overcome by the true love interest” that it did in Love Hina.

    A number of other differences come to mind, but I should stop here before I make this rant even more unreadably long. ^_^

  47. Anonymous says:

    Are the pictures with the aged up Fate and Rakan “real time” ones or flashbacks? I do hope that its “real time”. It would be awesome if Negi, Fate(young), and Fate(old) met and, say, crashed the party.

  48. Anonymous says:

    Aren’t the raws usually out by now?

  49. Prinny says:

    SetsunaXKonoka is actually a nice pair, for negi, I’d rather see him with Nodoka, Yue, or Chisame.

  50. the raws are out so are the translaitions

    somehow what Fate said at the end made me think about Eva ! Lol is Eva the one who originally created the Magic world ?

    Or is fate one of Eva’s dollies lol !

    Im making a bet that Eva is Arika as for now everything really does support this thessis

  51. arimareiji says:

    Putting together what Rakan said on pages 18 and 16… did he just call Fate a monstrously constipated turd to be dropped? XD

    Er, 15. Not 16.

    Ok, the next chapter is gonna rock! I will probably be the best since 247, 248.

  54. Nana says:

    Hmmm…I’ve been thinking. If the magical world is indeed Mars, does that mean we’ll be seeing more of Chao in future chapters?

    I hope so, I really liked Chao. 😀
