Negima! 286 SPOILER Images
魔法先生 ネギま!Chapter 286 (Images)

Here’s what I know many of you have been waiting for — the original-sized, sneak-peek SPOILER images for Mahou Sensei Negima! Chapter 286 as brought to you by anonymous Japanese fans (click pic to make bigger, y’all).


The new battle harem shot (which I’ve been waiting for a rather long time).


Heh!heh!heh!

Well, it took a while, but the battle harem shot makes up for it. Can’t wait ’till that gets a clean scan and color job. ^_^

I’ll keep an eye open for new images, so feel free to check back from time-to-time.

Update: More images. ^_^


Hmmmm…I think I was wrong about the “epic battle” between Eva and Negi unless it is going on in his mind right now.

    In that last picture showing everyone, there on the left. Yuna’s got a gun!

    Yuna pactio time imminent!

  2. Devilen says:

    typical Akamatsu to tease us with a major combat and then go on another tangent for a chapter (not that i mind a Nodoka/Yue reunion)

    interesting fact that Luna get a somewhat frontplace on the Battle Harem shot … i guess that means that she’s going to be a pseudo permenent addition to the group 🙂

  3. AstroNerdBoy says:

    @Anon — and to the left of Yuuna is Makie, though she’s cut off (as is Chisame on the far right). I note that Asuna is without bells and I suspect will be without bells from here on.

    Also, I don’t see Sayo in the image unless that’s her between Kaede and Asakura, behind Ku Fei. Also missing is Anya. I see Akira and Ako in the back with Paru.

    I’d love to have that as an official poster. I’d buy it and the dragon one too.

  6. Anonymous says:

    Ako pactio incoming?

  7. Wow! You definitely scanned each pages. Thank you for sharing. I saw this manga before but i totally forgot about the title. Now I know its titled Negima.

  8. Monic says:

    Its good to see Asuna in the team again, I guess her uniform really does reflect her princess status now.

  9. Ultimaniac says:

    Is there a break after this? It kinda looks like the usual message on the last page but I can barely make it out.

  10. SL from MH says:

    I have a feeling that Negi’s battle with Eva & him getting in control of his ME (which i think would be temporary for now) would be in those missing 8 pages.

    Also Takane is telling Yuuna about her father being a mage as well (which i had a feeling would have been going to happen sooner or later). Maybe we would find out about what happened to Yuuna’s mother.

    And so it seems that Ako might be the first one to get the pactio and if it is true then i do hope that her card art & artifact would not be like the one which was present in that Card which Ken released few years back.

  11. SL from MH says:

    @ Ultimaniac: There is a break supposed to be there after ch 287 but that would be a two week break because one break would be Ken’s usual break which he has been taking usually after 4 chapters released. The next break would be because of “Golden Week” being celebrated in Japan (if i am correct).
    I am not completely sure about this though so someone has to clarify it.

  12. AstroNerdBoy says:

    @Anon — seems like, though I think Chamo is trying to prep them all for it.

    @Monic — I think it is a reflection of her new self — the merger of her former and current personalities. I’ll be glad when they finally rescue her, but for now, I’m satisfied to see her again and to have the fake unmasked.

    @Ultimaniac — I don’t think there’s a break unless Akamatsu-sensei got really far behind.

    @SL — I bet you are right on the content of the missing pages.

    As to Takane making the reveal to Yuuna, that would seemingly be the key to getting Yuuna a pactio beyond her normal desire for something cool.

    As to her mom, I’d love to know more about her being missing as well.

    Regarding Ako, it would be interesting to see how Akamatsu-sensei goes. I tend to suspect he’d not change it much, but with Ako not being quite the same as she was early on, that could justify a new card. Certainly, Kodansha would love to sell a new card to the otaku in Japan.

    That is my understanding as well.

  14. Anonymous says:

    To SL from MH: Not if is my idea for it. I agree the Giant Syringe Idea is silly at a first glance, but don’t forget these are magical items and they have the ability to defy logical explanation. My idea is the Giant Syringe is merely a default form, and the Artifact has the ability to change it’s form into a wide variety of modern day medical equipment-such as how Rakan’s Artifact changes into a variety of weapons. Also while a syringe that size would be unesless for a human how about a Elephant? or a Dragon?

  15. AstroNerdBoy says:

    I’ll wait until someone with some Japanese skills confirms (if they drop in), but I get the feeling Chamo is using one of the age illusion candies to overcome the objection to kissing a 10-year old boy. *lol*

  16. Monic says:

    That makes sense, do you really think she’d be without her bells from now on? I guess this also confirms the bells were a way to suppress her memories too?

    And same here, I’m really glad to see the real Asuna again after 50 plus chapters of Fake!Asuna.

  17. arimareiji says:

    Wild random thought…

    If Yue is becoming a mage in her own right, how long ’til she and Nodoka pactio?

  18. SL from MH says:

    Anonymous (posted on “April 10, 2010 1:44 AM”): Why would Ako be healing a Elephant or a Dragon in the first place. She isn’t like Konoka who wouldn’t be intimated by a Dragon, if i am right one glimpse of a Dragon would be enough for her to faint.

    Also the reason Konoka got the Healing artifact is because she plays the role of a White Mage in the manga and as most of the White Mage’s present in any sort of game (like FF), they are mainly the user of light magic & healing abilities. Also before she got her artifact, she was already shown to have healing powers.

    Where as Ako, even though she is a Health Committee Officer for the class, she was never shown to give anyone any sort of first-aid to people, instead she has been shown to be prone to fainting if she sees blood.
    So, my guess is that if she gets the artifact, it would be related to defensive powers like creating a powerful barrier which can stop almost any attacks, since this would in a way match her nature which seems to be ‘that she hates seeing people get hurt’.

    Also, except for Asuna’s artifact, there is not a single other artifact with the group which can be used for defensive purpose (even Haruka’s artifact isn’t able to completely nullify any damage).

    Also her artifacts costume shows her as a “Mini-skirt Nurse with Neko Ears”, which is actually an idea taken from the ch 72. Till now none of the pactio cards art had any sort of costume like that. Everyone of those cards art in someway related to the nature of the person or there talents.

    So i don’t see Ako being a Cat-girl unless she really is one like Setsuna is a Bird-girl.

  19. Nick says:

    I really REALLY hope the one Shadow user Takane was her name? i forget but i really hope she pactios with Negi as SL mentioned im also curious to how Yuna will play out since her dad is a mage, and a long while back we saw a chapter of her playing with a starter mage wand, also wanna know what happened to her mom. As for Yue cool she can keep ther knight outfit but how will it stack with her patio (doesn’t she get like a witch looking outfit?) Im also hopping we get more time dedicated to Haruna i dont believe we have had alot of development in her character for a while although shes prolly the smartest one on the team =p

  20. Vision says:

    First @ asrto yes that is Sayo behind Ku Fei, and thanks for the heads up about the two week break. (preparations for Negima withdrawal need to be made as soon as possible.)
    @ Nicky about Yuuna I bet her artifact would be either affective or like a stats boost in nature thats just my idea
    As for Ako’s artifact the card is just a picture no telling what the actual artifact will be. Remember Chachamaru’s it was a cat gun in the picture. What was is really A BLOODY SATELLITE CANNON, cat themed of course but still one of the most destructive artefact’s to date. Although Paru’s just might be able to the most mental damage depending how it is used. ex Nugi, Akira just might need therapy of memory erasure magic after that one.
    I think the talk with Yuuna about here mom will be interesting but not fully explored till everyone is back on earth. Also I would put money down on Luna coming back with them to Earth now. And as one last note Chamo is defiantly looking for another bonus, but the question is how many will he get?

  21. AstroNerdBoy says:

    @Monic — if the bells were used to aid in the memory suppression, then yeah, I wouldn’t think she’d wear them any more. Assuming Fate hasn’t destroyed them, I can see her keeping them as a memento though.

    @SL — Also, except for Asuna’s artifact, there is not a single other artifact with the group which can be used for defensive purpose (even Haruka’s artifact isn’t able to completely nullify any damage).

    Yue’s artifact could be used to devise a defense, but I know what you are talking about though.

    Regarding Ako, Akamatsu-sensei put a scar on her back and I’d think he has a specific reason in mind for doing so.

    “Infirmaria Cum Traumate” is what’s on the old card of Ako’s. The fact that she’s the Health Committee Officer may have something to do with whatever happened to her in the past and a pactio card might go a step further to that end. In my opinion, Ala Alba could use a second healer, especially since Konoka has been referred to as a princess as well, meaning she could be targeted again.

    As for the costume Ako is shown with, maybe it is the truth about her (being a cat girl) or maybe it is that she secretly likes dressing up like that but dares not show it.

    Just a thought.

  22. AstroNerdBoy says:

    @Nick — Takane is already a “master” of sorts. It is implied that she has a pactio with Mei, though I don’t think that’s been confirmed (nor has the pactio between Cocone and Misora, though that is likely). As such, I can’t see her wanting to suborn herself to Negi or anyone else.

    As to Yue’s knight gear, that could be stored in her pactio card. A certain number of costumes can be stored there.

    As to Paru, well she’s pretty dangerous because she’s too mischievous, which is why I think she’s used only sparingly.

  23. Anonymous says:

    Actually…
    It has been already confirmed that Cocone (magister) and Misora (ministra) had already made a pactio… I just forgot where I found the source though… sorry! ;p

    LoneWolfx03-]—

  24. clint says:

    paru’s artifact is one of the most useful artifacts(can be used at anything but not that powerful) like kaede’s artifact..well kaede’s artifact can be use as defensive though…

  25. SL from MH says:

    @ANB:
    Regarding Ako, Akamatsu-sensei put a scar on her back and I’d think he has a specific reason in mind for doing so.
    Well that’s what i have been thinking from the time i first read that part. The way she described herself in ch 122 & the way she reacted to her own blood in ch 123 strongly suggest that she had some sort of extremely important event in her past which might possibly be related to the world of magic. Also there is a chance that this past event of Ako might be related to Nagi as well (but the chances are slim).

    “Infirmaria Cum Traumate” is what’s on the old card of Ako’s. The fact that she’s the Health Committee Officer may have something to do with whatever happened to her in the past and a pactio card might go a step further to that end. In my opinion, Ala Alba could use a second healer, especially since Konoka has been referred to as a princess as well, meaning she could be targeted again.
    I agree that Ala Alba does need a second healer but i have always though that part to be done by Akira.
    Even if Ako is the one to become the second healer for Ala Alba, i really wish that she doesn’t get that Giant Syringe as her artifact.

    As Konoka is considered to be a White/Light Mage because of which she is given the healing artifact, similarly I consider Akira to have the role of Water Mage since they are the other types of Mage’s who can use healing/curing powers. But what kind of a type would be Ako, I can’t say.

    Now my question is, how is Ken going to make a new healing/curing artifact which is unique to itself & at the same time different to Konoka’s as her artifact can be considered to be the ultimate healing/curing artifact. Also, it seems that because of Negi’s magical powers being so high & him having a royal background is the reason that the artifacts which his attendants get are so rare, so what kind of artifact can Ako get which would be rare as well as powerful & be not like Konoka’s.
    If Ken makes an artifact for Ako which has healing abilities in lower levels than Konoka’s, then wouldn’t it be better to use a healing spell instead as it wouldn’t the artifact wouldn’t be that rare.

    I am still of the idea on a Barrier Creating artifact for Ako, but “Zibi” of MH also has a good idea form her artifact which according to him will be related to her Musical instruments playing talent (like a Guitar), the effects of her artifact can vary according to what Ken has planned.

    As for the costume Ako is shown with, maybe it is the truth about her (being a cat girl) or maybe it is that she secretly likes dressing up like that but dares not show it.
    If Ako is really a half-human, then I am ok with that art of her. But if its related to her liking dressing-up as a cat-girl then I can see the card art not being like that, because I don’t think that’s how the card arts are given by Ken (though I might be wrong).

  26. arimareiji says:

    More random bits: I’m only guessing the intent because the words are actually bastardized Latin-Greek expressing anachronistic concepts, but I think “infirmaria cum traumate” was meant to convey “wounded nurse”.

    (Not “scarred nurse”, though that was my first thought. And definitely not “nurse with nekomimi”, which would be something like “infirmaria cum auribus felis”.)

  27. AstroNerdBoy says:

    @LoneWolfx03 — the closest thing I’m aware of is Misora referencing Cocone as her “master,” though in what context, I’m not sure. I think people automatically assume this means Cocone and Misora have a pactio and maybe they do. However, the black-and-white drawing Kajishima-sensei has of Cocone and Misora shows both holding a card, suggesting both have a pactio with someone.

    @Clint — Actually, all of the artifacts seen thus far have great usefulness, depending on the situation. I would think Yue’s might be the most useful since information and knowledge is power (or so they say). ^_~

    @SL — Akamatsu-sensei managed to get Chisame her silly mahou shoujo wand. I thought about that just now and how we’ve all pretty much accepted it. *lol*

    As to Ako’s artifact (and she could get more as Chachamaru and Chisame did), what are syringes used for? Injections or extractions. In theory, she might be able to inject an injured body and cause said person to begin to regenerate. Thus it would be different than Konoka’s “miko” ability, in which she only has three minutes to cure any injury before time’s up.

    Ako’s syringe could also be used to give a stat boost to the fighting members of the battle harem.

    Whew. I’m falling asleep here. ^_^;;; That’s what I get for staying up so late yesterday and not getting much sleep.

    Hate to say this, but…
    Told ya :/

    I dont have too much time now, later ill se the pics and post something

  29. thunder says:

    Well, imma back. Thx for the weekly spoilers, as always.

    Well, Yue doesnt seem to remember Nodoka yet. No info about the fight, but it seems Negi is safe, and if the fight doesnt happen, probaly it’ll appear as a flashback.

    With that said, the girls are going for the lip- errr… i mean, pactios

    @Anonymous “B”- about the color… just wait till it appear in deviantart ( the not official one, i mean )

    @Anonymous “C”- Yes, probaly.

    @Monic – They’ve meet already? I don’t think so… well, is possible but its too much for one chapter alone.

    @Ultimaniac- The last break was in chap 283, so it should be around 286-287.

    Well, the posts below Ultimaniac’s are too big, and i don’t feel like reading it all.

    Cya

    ( Ah, one last thing, about Yuna’s guns, would make sense, she used a pair of guns during the Mahora Festival, remember? Well, theses new guns CAN be the mahora ones as well, but who knows? )

    Ah, and im sorry for this shitty english, english inst my first language ( not even second )

    Kajishima is drawing Negima pictures? Could you post them here by any chance?

  31. Anonymous says:

    ANB nailed it.

    Ako’s syringe:

    -Stats boosts (“vitamins”)
    -Healing
    -Extraction

    I’d be willing to put money on that.

  32. Anonymous says:

    Just had another thought on Ako… it’s out there but whatever…

    Akamatsu could do something that totally came out of left field with something like a “bard” character for Ako…

    I don’t think he’d mind “borrowing” some of that guitar-wielding-girl-moe thats been popular…

  33. just don’t forget that she’s worried about the scar on her back (Ako).
    also to much of a good thing is bad as Negi demonstrated two or so times.

  34. Bludvein says:

    Imo, since Negi looks like hes in that vulnerable period after his fight (damn that was fast),Ako will get her artifact and heal him with it.

  35. Philip says:

    spoiler pic #6 looks like Negi’s New Jedi Order…

    I always wondered if Ako’s artifact (that big syringe) could be used not just for healing, but also to suck up poison.

  36. Rakath says:

    @Astronerdboy

    It is more likely Yue’s armor (and staffbroomthing) were summoned in the same manner as her sword. It was shown that all the Ariadne Knights summon their weapons as needed, stands to reason the armor is also summoned by some charm.

    Since when she summoned them she did not summon her artifact.

  37. Waffles says:

    I think it’d be interesting if Ako’s syringe (if that’s what artifact she ends up with) could not only extract injuries, but inject them into enemies too. This would allow it to function as both a weapon and a healing device!

    On the subject of whether or not Misora and Cocone are partners, Cocone’s name (Cocone Fatima Rosa) appears on the back of Misora’s official pactio card, which was packaged with the Ala Alba Drama CD that came out a while back. It’s not from the manga, but this might be the closest we get to an answer. 🙂

  38. AstroNerdBoy says:

    @Thunder — Yep, seems like more pactiones are in the works.

    As to Yuuna, she showed her proficiency at the magic guns, so her addition would give another long-range fighter along with Mana.

    @Anon — Working on the latest ISM review and thus why my fingers typed out the wrong name. ^_^;

    @Rakath — yeah, that’s how she did her armor, through the Ariadne Knight thing. I wonder if it gets added to the pactio card after she returns to Earth or will she still be able to use it.

  39. bambi says:

    I really wonder if Negi on last picture is simply sleeping exhausted or if he is fighting inside phantasmagoria his dark self like last time. Because then Ako’s presence here tell clearly “suck me in, suck me in”.

  40. Dave Ependi says:

    why does everybody seems like forgetting about makie?!! i’m really curious what kind of artifact makie will get,and akira as well!! i can hardly wait 😀

  41. clint says:

    @astro
    Well i guess your right..
    Knowledge is power..like what happen at Honya after learnin how to use the key Staff she managed to escape but did Not actually escape..thnx for the spoilers

    @bambi
    Hmm if he is on phantasmagoria ..well He shouldn’t have that relax face…
    And maybe he fainted after the Fight,anyway he isn’t in a good shape Before they started…

    Im not really interested about yuuna’s Mom,im more interested on yuuna’s Artifact and about zazie-san, IS She an UMA? just kiddin….

    Back to to the topic..

    Well i agree with astro about yuuna’s Gettin a gun artifact….but her Personality doesn’t suit snipping..
    I guess she will be a mid range type.

    Okay this isn’t Negima related but since golden week is coming i thought id give a few reccomdations for manga i am currently addicted to Dance Subaru ,Skip Beat,Holyland,Kampfer, The Breaker,Mei No Naisho, Baby Steps, Muv Luv Unlimited, Vita Sexualis, A Girls and Bloody Monday some good Anime are Rideback,Stellvia,Clannad and Code Geass oh and after 4hrs of searching i also found a site called mysojou.com it a website with korean,japanase and chinese drama and live action drama and all in eng with no megavideo 🙂 i was searching for eng eps of the Negima Live action drama unfortunately i couldnt find any but if someone knows a good free site to watch them please post links.

  43. thunder says:

    @Dave Ependi- Who is forgeting Makie? im not ! ( well, i did, actually…). Since Makie likes to play with that ribbon thingy, i suppose she might get like Kagetarou’s “spears”. But then again, she learned a bit of magic, so its hard to say.

    @clint- I, too, think Zazie might be a UMA xD. About Yuuna’s weapon, it can be a pair of guns, or even a basket ball. Anything other than that would be strange.

    @Annonymous- Never seen any of these =D .Golden Week? Already? Damn i gotta hibernate again.

    With the golden week, most likely Akamatsu will get 2 weeks off.

  44. Dark-Desire says:

    I think seeing as Yuuna is in the basketball team (if I’m not mistaken) her pactio/artifact could be something to do with short to mid-range attacks.

    Ako’s artifact could be a guitar (?) that give’s stat boosts, long range attacks e.g one of fate’s partners uses a violin. I really hope she doesn’t get a syringe.

  45. SL from MH says:

    Raws of ch 286 is out on “RP”.

  46. SL from MH says:

    The missing 8 pages shows that Ako, Makie, Yuuna & Akira come face to face with Negi in demon mode. Just when Negi is about to attack Ako something happen to him & he stops. Then Eva comes in & uses a freezing spell to stop Negi (i think its the same spell which she used against Asuna during training). They all take Negi to the rest house & we see that he is still in half-demon form. Then Makie touches his hand & his demon forms starts to disappear. Then the other three non-pacto girls also do the same thing & Negi comes out of his Demon mode but he is still asleep.

  47. Anonymous says:

    RP has the raws, with their stupid watermark on them.

    One thing I didn’t notice, in an image Nodoka has her card and her artifact at the same time. I though the card turned into the artifact?

    lol..XD…well on an interview..akamatsu-sensei said he’ll reveal the secrets of zazie or about zazie in the last arc (im not sure)maybe this isn’t the last arc..
    basketball artifact..? hmmm it may look weird…seeing others artifact

    @anon
    what? golden week…darn..school time….i got schools on summer
    zzz gotta stick to other manga again..
    well im waitin for the next chapter of skip beat

  51. AstroNerdBoy says:

    Just got a peek at the RAW and as I mentioned to CanonRap, I think the Sports 4 are connected to Negi thanks to whatever he did to return them to human status at the end of volume 3. They have no memories of that night, but Makie showed they still have some lingering after effects when she briefly addressed Eva as “Eva-sama” back when Negi was trying to convince Eva to become her disciple. Makie then thinks about what she says and her next statement to Eva emphasizes “Eva-CHAN.” ^_^

    Anyway, if there is a bond or connection between Negi and the Sports 4, it help explain why they were able to return him to human status, in effect returning the favor he did to them.

  56. Anonymous says:

    Maybe the reason those 4 girls had an effect on Negi is because they were once ‘enslaved’ by Eva? Someone (can’t remember who XD) said that the original Eva back in Mahora can do something about the side effects of Magia Erabea and those 4 have traces of that original Eva, compounded by their feelings for Negi which led to the healing effect.

    Thanks for the heads-up that the raw’s available… but now I’m impatient to find out what Eva told the girls (あそこでああしなければ貴様らが死んでいたぞ) just before Makie decides to take Negi’s hand.

    Yahoo is way too ambiguous, coming up with “If it does not do well there, your way and others it had died.”
