UQ Holder Chapter 129 SPOILER Images (Update #3: More images!)

Here is some SPOILER images for the upcoming UQ Holder Chapter 129, courtesy of unknown source.  (My review of UQ Holder Chapter 129 should come out as soon as they appear on Crunchyroll, depending on when Crunchyroll publishes the chapter. At this point, I do not know what that will be)

UQ HOLDER Chapter 129 SPOILERS

The UQ Holder Chapter 129 goodness begins. This is the chapter’s spoiler images. I haven’t seen any text, but this monthly thing is still new.

So, for those worried that this would stay too long in the Negima realm, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

There are a couple of images for the new UQ Holder color pages, but it is pretty NSFW. So I’ve made them small and hopefully this doesn’t cause problems. Clicking the image will produce the full size version that I have.

Whew! Hopefully, the page isn’t taking 10,000 years to load. In theory, the smaller images I post here should automatically be smaller (which become the large sized files when clicked), but I didn’t have time to convert from png to jpg.

Wow. Akamatsu-sensei is opening a can of you know what on Eva and Touta. I don’t know if it means anything, but I noticed MotB kinda looks like Fate at times.

Update #2: A bit of information.

DerGilga had initially posted the name, but I didn’t know what it meant. Hata provided more info.

Lifemaker’s initial name is ヨルダ·バオト. (Yoruda·Baoto, probably name after Yarudabaoto, a super god robot after apotheosis in Super Robot War.)

So there’s that. 🙂

    Asuna has become an expert at keeping her bra on apparently. Hard to make any statements when you have a very small portion of the chapter at hand. All I can infer is that the MotB is still a massive dbag. At least Touta doesn’t appear to change anything in the past so that’s alright. Hope there’s at least some explanations about the current state of Negi’s Party. Touta SHOULD recognize Yue/Nodoka.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Asuna has become an expert at keeping her bra on apparently.

      😆 Well, she’s the most experienced at dealing with it. 😉

      At least Touta doesn’t appear to change anything in the past so that’s alright.

      I think they were just in a phantasmagoria.

    • sanchi says:

      Bra AND panties. Negi sneeze proof and magic resistant underwear. shucks, the spoilers didn’t show any brand name. 🙂 I guess it is better than the ones the Konoe twins were wearing – but then it was Tota’s magic that worked on their clothes.

  2. Mattcgw says:

    I know Akamatsu-Sensei is relying on his assistants more, but that shouldn’t entail the lifemaker looking like a cross dressing fate.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Akamatsu-sensei has such a limited range of character designs (by his own admission) that it is hard to say if he did this on purpose or not. MotB did create Fate and company, so there might be a reason her psycho mode comes off like Fate.

    • Dargor says:

      The Averunnci looking like the Lifemaker wouldn’t be too far of a stretch. I’m more disappointed that we’re supposed to assume that the women is the Lifemakers original body, but eh.

      • AstroNerdBoy says:

        I’ve been thinking that ever since MotB revealed herself without a hood in Negima during the flashback. I know most people assumed this was just another body she’d taken. When she showed back up in UQH, that pretty much confirmed that MotB was always a woman.

        What disappoints me is that MotB may not be connected to Amateru.

    • sanchi says:

      I’m trying to remember — there were several clones of ‘Fate’ in Negima that was defeated by Negi. I was wondering who was the source of the cloning – seem it was from the MotB – so possibly she should look like Fate – and why Fate got so emotional and understanding the MotB, about the suffering of the MotB in the earlier chapter – and there may be some form of connection between those two… but limited drawing is also a good reason.

    moar pics… the colonel was a lie

    …. that Yolda

  4. OverMaster says:

    Sooooo… this Albireo is the Lifemaker, but he was standing next to the Lifemaker-posessed Negi. Soooo, the Lifemaker can be in two places at once, Negi was never the actual host but he was otherwise influenced, or what?

    Also, I think the sudden change from ‘LOL Nudity!’ comedy to a bloody battle in a single chapter diminishes both the comedy and the drama, especially the former. It doesn’t feel like it’s funny if it immediately changes into torture porn, and rather it feels like gratuitous bait for the manga’s relaunch. I guess we’ll have to wait for the rest of the chapter to see if the Negima cast show again, but if they don’t, it was pointless to bring them back only for yet another strip sneeze joke, and the manga could have done without it. If you’re dragging old characters back, at least do something worthwhile with them. If you can’t, then use that room (now even more valuable in a monthly format) to better flesh out your new cast, because they sure need it desperately.

    • OverMaster says:

      Wait, no, the new images do show Al and the Lifemaker in different panels of the same pages. So Al is just a puppet, or allied to her because of any reason. Still I don’t get why the Lifemaker isn’t in Negi’s form then. Have they contacted the Lifemaker of the past? At that point, shouldn’t it be Nagi?

      • sanchi says:

        “We don’t even know yet if these are the real Yue and Nodoka, or only duplicates with similar abilities (considering the Lifemaker can create beings who were far more powerful than either of them) or ‘hollow’ posessed bodies that happen to hold the girls’ Pactios.”

        OverMaster – looks like you were right! Seems Alberio and probably all of Negi’s group may be the MotB’s creations, and most likely part of it is to keep Negi under control.

      • sanchi says:

        hmm – makes me now wonder about Cutlass. Is she Tota’s test-tube sister or another manifestation of the MotB??

      • Mattcgw says:

        @OverMaster Ones inner appearance does not reflect the exterior appearance.

      • AstroNerdBoy says:

        I think when this is in English, we’ll get a better understanding. Remember, we’ve seen MotB before, holding Negi and Nagi. Folks seemed to discount this, but I think it means something. I think MotB may have pulled Eva and Touta to a place where she has form.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Sooooo… this Albireo is the Lifemaker,

      I don’t think so. Just an ally or controlled.

      As to the chapter, I think the Negima stuff is to show where the series has come, in part for new readers and in part for us old readers. Then the dark stuff is to say, “This is the Negima world now, via UQH.”

      • OverMaster says:

        ‘The world used to be happy and bright, now it’s bloody and miserable’ may be a good hook if they’re aiming for the Attack on Titan audience, yeah. It doesn’t work that well in tandem with the apparent attempt to appeal back to the Negima fanbase, to the point of retitling the manga:

        https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/daily-briefs/2016-10-07/uq-holder-manga-adds-magister-negi-magi-2-subtitle/.107381

        but whatever.

        All I’m saying is, right now is it looks like the series doesn’t even know if it wants to be its own thing or not. Too much of the old cast and setting have been lost for this to feel like any actual Negima 2, but at the same time the series just keeps clutching to more and more of the lore that was supposed to have happened more than eighty years ago. And that simply isn’t working. I suppose it can be done, the Star Wars saga has done something akin to mixed critical results but great financial success… but it’s very hard to pull off, and this approach just doesn’t feel natural. As it is, the inherited elements aren’t properly fleshed out, but nor do they let the newer elements to bloom properly on their own either.

        This should have been either an all new story or a continuation of Negi’s story. It’s failing at trying to be both things while truly being neither. Akamatsu can call it ‘Negima 2’ all he wants to, but it’s still a Negima In Name Only that still falls short as its own tale.

        Imagine if Takahashi Rumiko had tried to make up for all the Ranma loose ends by making Inuyasha a Ranma sequel, constantly shoehorning Ranma references, quick flashbacks and conscious Expies into Inuyasha’s plot while trying to balance Inuyasha’s tone with Ranma’s. That’s what UQ Holder feels like.

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          Man, I thought that was just a one-time name thing. I only saw the old Negima name on the color page spread. Otherwise, it was just UQ Holder. Interesting.

          As to your concerns, I totally understand them. And this is the problem with Akamatsu-sensei ending Negima prematurely, but then starting up UQ Holder in the same universe and trying to use it to resolve plot threads from Negima.

          On a personal level, I rather enjoyed chapter 129, but that’s just me. ^_^;;;

    … dammit. They keep forgetting Mana, Chizuru and Kaede when it comes to these stripping sneezes.

  6. Seimei says:

    Astro : “Yolda Both” is mostly a distortion of “Ialdabaoth” the false god who created the world according to the Gnostics. In the time of ancient Greece, it was equated with Chronos, then, when Christianity appeared Ialdaboth was assimilated to the God of the Bible. However, note that the lifemaker carries a slightly different name. The demiurge nm (and super robot) is “YarudaBaoto”. While MOTB visibly called “Yoruda Baoto” or, as I translated, “Yolda Baoth”.

    She is probably NOT the true demiurge of the universe, but she simply took an pseudo, inspired of this deity, which is logical given her other nicknames (mage of the begining, lifemaker…).

    However, interesting fact. For Christans Gnostics, Jesus-Christ is the adversary of Ialdaboth. He was sent by the true God save humanity of the earthly prison created by Ialdaboth.

    Of course, as I said, “Yolda” is probably not the real Démirge (in addition she has only 2600 years, not billions of years)

    Yet the symbolism is there. An immortal magician, symbolically evoking the Gnostic demiurge. Considering that the master of karin, wase maybe Jesus, it is possible that Yolda-Baoth played a role in his death.
    This would give meaning to the phrase of Tota “If God hurted you, I’ll kick his ass! ”

    I repeat, for me, Yolda is NOT the Biblical God, or the Gnostic Demiurge. But simply, she has inspired of his name, to create her flase-name after becoming immortal.

    This is logical, since I remember she did the same for her daughter Amateru. Her name is derived from the Japanese sun goddess, Amaterasu. But Amateru is NOT Amaterasu …..^^

    I WANT THIS CHAP!!!!!!

    • Mattcgw says:

      @Seimei So what is Ialdabaoth to Protestants?

    • sanchi says:

      “Yoruda·Baoto” OK — I initially thought of the phonetics as a attempt at stating ‘Yoda Bat’. The Yoda Bat is Nyctimene (genus) Nyctimene; Eastern tube-nosed bat, Nyctimene robinsoni. Too technical and having a initial name after a bat that looks like Yoda — too far of a stretch.

    • sanchi says:

      From Wikipedia and other word search/thesaurus – a synopsis of the word “Ialdabaoth”:


      “The creator of the visible realm and of the earthly Adam and Eve of the biblical Garden of Eden is a lesser being, a ruler (archon) named Ialdabaoth – or ‘demiurge’ defined as a deity in Gnosticism, Manichaeism, and other religions who creates the material world and is often viewed as the originator of evil or simply a artisan-like figure responsible for the fashioning and maintenance of the physical universe.”

      So it fits the limited description in UQ of the MotB.

      • sanchi says:

        originator of evil = Mage of the Beginning

        Interesting in UQ we also have the opposite in Karin and her gift/power. Also Kuromaru that was able to break those ‘black’ ribbons – if these ribbons are the same thing as Xiao used on Tota.

        • Seimei says:

          Waitt, wait, calm down!

          As I say, “Yolda-Baoto” is a name that is inspired by the Gnostic Ialdoboth (which would write in japanese “Yarudabaoto”. MOTB is probably NOT Ialdoboth. Even less, the biblical God.

          Simply, is like the name of Amateru, his/her daughter, which is inspired by that of Amaterasu. Is just a way to echo his role as “evil creative” thinking.

          However, symbolically, I agree. Karin probably being a disciple of Jesus Christ, or one of the apostles, and Jesus being the opponent of Ialdoboth for the Gnostics, it is quite possible that there is a symbolic opposition between Yoruda and Karin. And as I say, it seems increasingly clear that the sentence of Tota, saying he will going to kill God concerned very probably, the MOTB. Not the True Ialdoboth, nor even less the True God.^^

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          Hard to say if the ribbons are the same or not. Xiao is a shadow user, so his ribbons were that. Whether MotB’s are the same or not remains to be seen. Highly possible though.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Thanks for the info. ^_^

  7. nyaa says:

    ghah! why the raw so short! ..the amount of page is like for weekly rather than monthly!

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I think there are over 60 pages for the first chapter. 16-18 pages is the typical weekly. What I had posted is just what was out there, sans some images plastered with watermarks.

  8. Setsuyume Edenfault says:

    WELCOME BACK ASTROOOOOOOOOOOO!

    …no, wait! I am the one who dissapeared! LOL Well, thanks for the long awaited UQH spoilers! Nice old school (pun intended) fan service there, how nostalgic! :)_

  9. magine says:

    Finally after a long wait!
    *sees the spoilers*
    Seeing this, I feel a mixture of feelings between nostalgia and rage. Nostalgia because I feel like I was seeing Negima again and rage because what the heck the Lifemaker is doing with Touta and Evangeline! Although I think that all this thing is an illusion created by the Lifemaker, I mean, in really Touta is seeing an illusion of Evangeline injured, isn’t he? (Seeing this, I’m beginning to think that the Lifemaker had a love tragic past)

    PS: Will this chapter be out this weekend? Thanks.

    • Dargor says:

      To be frank, I’m more angry at Eva being given the damsel in distress treatment over and over again. Ripped in half or not, this is the character that got skewered by a rock and got her arm blasted off, and didn’t so much as blink, regenerating instantly. Being reduced to this state just so Touta can have his “I’m a man I do cool things” thing is annoying at this point. Talk about character assassination.

      • magine says:

        I also realized that the Evangeline UQ Holder is like most “Soft” Chachazero was right when she said that she was becoming too friendly (I still don’t know where is Chachazero, I don’t know what became of her…) doesn’t bother me that occasionally show her emotions though (I guess someday will be explained the reason why she doesn’t have all her power)

        Even so if this is an illusion, this ‘Evangeline’ is just what the Lifemaker is showing, she isn’t the real.

        I feel that I’m seeing a resum of the entire story from Negima in this chapter, but with Touta, this is Dejá vu lol And I saw not long ago some chapters of Negima…

        I like see some scenes that in Negima wasn’t seen. I wonder if it will also be the scene when Evangeline talked alone with Negi before going to the magic world.

        I’m the one who has the impression that Evangeline’s expressions are like more… Happy… than when those same scenes happened in Negima?

        • Dargor says:

          Soft, in the sense of “I’m not an aloof vampire loli”, as opposed to crumbling heap of tears needing rescued after one attack.

          • OverMaster says:

            Well, odds are this is only a false Evangeline Lifemaker has created to screw Touta’s mind up and by next month we’ll be stuck back into the future plotline. So, I don’t think that really matters, since this isn’t happening to the real Eva and those weren’t the actual Negima characters we saw. It’s all only a play set for Touta’s benefit and to re-sell the series to nostalgics who won’t learn after being burned over and over. This chapter might have as well been titled ‘Shameless Bait’.

  10. shadowofthevoid says:

    Yay! The wait is finally over! Looks to be a long chapter (~60 pages). I hope that’s the standard going forward. Now to wait on CR translating it.

  11. sanchi says:

    Everytime I see those black ribbons used– more so now since Eva was restricted and split in half by those ribbons, I’m trying NOT to equate this with another similar concept called japanese rope bondage, or ‘kinbaku’ or ‘shibari’ which also has nudity as part of it too. We have seen Negi, Nagi, Karin, Kuromaru, Tota, and now Eva being literally tied up with it.

  12. Rob C. says:

    Looking forward to some answers to that the cliff hangar is all about. I think it’s big trap set by the MotB.

    I do think thou, MotB being a woman isn’t a shock. The one before Nagi was a woman as well as seen in a flash back in the old Negima manga.

    Not so crazy so far with excess nudity. I know their trying drum up sales, but this getting boring.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      The one before Nagi IS the same woman we see here.

      As to the nudity, I know what you mean. Negima could be quite excessive there at times.
