Negima! Manga Vol 36 Ch 335 Review

魔法先生 ネギま!Volume 36 Chapter 335 (manga)  
Mahou Sensei Negima! Manga Chapter 335

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Donet braces for the end of the Magic World when it doesn’t happen.  All over the Magic World, people observe the massive storms disappear and clear skies return.

Over with Negi’s group, Konoka heals Kotaro and Beau as Emily is recalled from the world of CE.  Her fellow knight her and weep rejoicing as Nodoka looks on and grins.

Meanwhile, Asuna continues the recall process, allowing Jack to move again as Eva looks on disapprovingly.  Asuna discovers that plants and animals were also removed, so she goes about recalling them as well.

All over the Magic World, folks come back to life and those that had been involved with people in Negi’s circle are greeted by them.

Negi and company are taken to the Governor-General’s residence again and given an hero’s welcome, followed by a massive feast. It is here that Negi makes the rounds to speak with everyone at the party.

Elsewhere, Yuuna, Makie, Paru, Cocone (?) , and Misora arrive with a present for Johnny — the latest model Manta flyer, courtesy of a couple of governments for his help in the recent crisis.

Two days later, Theo and other leaders arrange for a celebration to reward Negi for saving the world, marking him as the new hero that 20-years before, Nagi had also saved.

Negima! Manga Vol 36 Ch 335

Thoughts/Review:

There’s not a whole lot to talk about in the aftermath here.  I will say that Asuna being directly linked to the world of CE so that she knows exactly what was archived off is interesting.  I hope that in future, she talks a bit about her coming to terms with her past and why her original personality didn’t take over as Fate expected it to.

I wonder why Eva doesn’t look too pleased with Asuna as Asuna restores everything. Maybe because Eva’s life was forfeit until Asuna save them and now Asuna is the true savior of the Magic World, at least in getting it back to normal for the time being.   I hope we learn more about Eva’s past and her association with Ala Rubra now that we’ve got more time.

I notice that Shiori (Luna) wasn’t around in any of the pictures.  Even Fate was shown attending the Governor’s party and hanging out in the back with Jack.  I also wonder if Shiori’s sister was restored since she was sent to CE.  I can’t help but think that illusionary beings who just died normally, whether through war or naturally, aren’t restored but those force-sent to the world of CE are.  So, its highly possible that Shiori’s sister is back. That would be nice.

As I said, I expect there to be some additional aftermath in this new volume of manga, combined with some humor and general “taking it easy” on the part of Akamatsu-sensei before gearing up for the next arc.  In the meantime, I’ll be on the lookout for some advanced chapter 336 spoilers, even if only a short time ahead.

    Kind of an anti-Climax…

    Oh well, could all these events mean that since the manga won’t be ending now (like I was expecting), the rest of the class will learn about magic and lock lips with our resident 10-year old playboy, Negi, and make some pactios?

  2. Thethhron says:

    NO, I’m mad at him. He splits the ending between the manga and the Movie, so now there’s two endings? Das poop. Das SO much poop right there.

    ANyway, I agree with your wonderings. It became apprent to me a while back that Asuna was not dealing with her past as well as she showed to anya. Then again….She recovered almost immediately from Being rejected by Takamichi after Negi showed up in Eva’s resort. Maybe she springs back easy?

  3. negima-news says:

    Chapter 335 is part of volume 36, because it contains 11 chapters instead of 10 …

  4. Ultimaniac says:

    I think Asuna’s original personality didn’t take over because, like she said so herself way back when, she was empty with no emotions or feelings whatsoever. Possibly, her couple of years of happiness at Mahora just overshadowed her long previous life of nothing.

  5. Tim says:

    Wow. It just boggles the mind at how many years this arc took to finish. Though I shouldn’t be that surprised considering how I felt after the Mahorafest ended. And that wasn’t as long as this (i think).

    I think there are most certainly more pactiones in Negi’s future. ^_^

    I need to check on that, but it wouldn’t surprise me. The other information I had this round turned out 100% wrong.

    Checking now…checking…checking…checking…confirmed. I’ll update title. Thanks for correcting 411!

    NO, I’m mad at him. He splits the ending between the manga and the Movie, so now there’s two endings? Das poop. Das SO much poop right there.

    SHAFT shafted that idea. Originally, it seems that Akamatsu-sensei thought that SHAFT was going to use his original ending for the manga to end the movie. SHAFT made changes and so Akamatsu-sensei recently tweeted that the “Plan B” ending isn’t there.

    Maybe she springs back easy?

    Maybe. ^_^

    I think Asuna’s original personality didn’t take over because, like she said so herself way back when, she was empty with no emotions or feelings whatsoever.

    Well, that wasn’t quite true because she did break down when Gatou died and that was prior to being given a fake persona. That said, Fate figured that the Asuna persona that we all know and love would be overwhelmed by the original and true personality, void of emotions not withstanding. That didn’t happen and another flaw in CE’s plan.

    Possibly, her couple of years of happiness at Mahora just overshadowed her long previous life of nothing.

    There’s that plus the fact that she cared a great deal about her friends and Negi. The real Asuna obviously cared about Nagi so in my mind, decided to go along with her fake counterpart and the two successfully merged rather than the fake being obliterated.

    Wow. It just boggles the mind at how many years this arc took to finish. Though I shouldn’t be that surprised considering how I felt after the Mahorafest ended. And that wasn’t as long as this (i think).

    Yeah, I hear ya. I was tired of the Mahora Festival arc when it finally ended, but re-reading it now as a whole, its not so bad. I suspect the MW arc will be much the same, though for a slightly better ending to the current arc, I would have been fine with a few more chapters.

  7. Anonymous says:

    Well, this arc was basically Negi searching for his father, fighting Fate, rescuing Asuna,etc. No wonder it took so long. Also, don’t forget that Ken took breaks here and there.

  8. Thethhron says:

    Having just finished re-reading Negima up through this arc end, I can honestly say that yes, It does not seem as bad as having to wait for so many years. However, It definitely should have had a couple more chapters for it’s end. As for this whole business about Asuna’s personality and it being fake…Why are we so sure it’s fake? All we know is that Asuna’s memories were REMOVED, not that she had a new personality added. It says when she first joined the kids at Mahora she was silent and anti-social. In between Kyoto and Mahorafest, during the Golden week vaction, Iincho and Asuna even kind of talk about the fact that Asuna grew up to be a “violent monkey” Because Asuna argued with Ayaka everyday. Granted, this might not be quite true but I wouldn’t be surprised if Asuna simply grew to be who she is. Takamichi could have simply told a young Asuna, with just erased memories, some story about her apparently deceased parent. I see no reason for there to be two personalities at all. Granted, I’m probably wrong considering the bit about the classmates calling out to Asuna and “activating” her “outer personality”. But still, We have never heard it mentioned that she was given a fake personality. Fate just up and says (assumes) it. It doesn’t mean he’s RIGHT

  9. My two cents: Anyway, now that Asuna is back with Ala Ruba, I wonder what is happening with Shiori and Ala Ruba? Is she ever going to meet Asuna and fight? This side story is going to be interesting =]

    Based on the Mahora Festival arc, I was expecting a long arc. I don’t think I expected one this long. I think that was another reason I feared this arc would be the end of the manga, and indeed, it apparently was to be the final one before the ending got changed.

    As for this whole business about Asuna’s personality and it being fake…Why are we so sure it’s fake? All we know is that Asuna’s memories were REMOVED, not that she had a new personality added.

    Fate described it as fake. Plus, the Asuna that traveled with Ala Rubra had a different personality than the Asuna that grew up at Mahora. Now, technically, that might not be a newly implanted personality, but a new personality emerged. I’m hoping that Asuna and Negi have a chat where Asuna reveals her coming to terms with her earlier self.

    My two cents: Anyway, now that Asuna is back with Ala Ruba, I wonder what is happening with Shiori and Ala Ruba? Is she ever going to meet Asuna and fight? This side story is going to be interesting =]

    Ala Alba. ^_~

    I think that Shiori would be expecting some kind of punishment from Asuna but I see Asuna being very forgiving, more so after learning how Shiori switched sides and helped out. ^_^

    Now, lets see Shiori and company get enrolled at Ariadne Academy. ^_^

    I’d rather see them enrolled at Mahora.

  12. Thethhron says:

    @Rhonin: Agreed.

    And i mentioned, yes, fate said she did but why do we know Fate is right? Also, When Asuna first came to Mahora her personality was NOT different.

    Just out of pure curiosity Astroboy or anyone else who cares to answer-has anyone seen or HEARD about the final anime movie? I just want to know what the hell happened between Setsuna and Konoka from their little spotlight pool scene in the trailer! Other than that I heard the movie was kind of a let down…

    Some.

    I just want to know what the hell happened between Setsuna and Konoka from their little spotlight pool scene in the trailer! Other than that I heard the movie was kind of a let down…

    Can’t answer the specifics, but yeah, I’ve heard negative things about the movie.
