UQ Holder Chapter 139 SPOILER Images & Anime Teaser Trailer (To tide us until the English chapter comes out.)

Here is some SPOILER info for the upcoming UQ Holder Chapter 139.  (My review of UQ Holder Chapter 139 should come out as soon as they appear on Crunchyroll, depending on when Crunchyroll can actually be bothered to publish the chapter — it should already be published since it is already the 8th in Japan.) The best we can hope for is 5pm PST (I think) on the 8th in the U.S.


The UQ Holder Chapter 139 goodness begins. The raw is completely out since it is the 8th in Japan.

First up, Negi vs. Nagi-MotB plus our old buddies from Cosmo Entelecheia.

I found this interesting.  It shows how much Eva has mellowed for her to hang with the three cheerleaders (now in college) while Negi and company are out in space, battling MotB. Now whether her remaining out of the action or not is the result of the curse or the result of her not getting involved is unknown. I’m hoping we see more of Eva’s involvement in the events of the past.

Negi’s battle harem arrives.

And some other allies as well, including Fate’s battle harem. Glad to see them here as well.

And again, no Touta or any other UQ Holder person is involved. Yay! 😛

If anyone wants to see the full chapter, it is here. Hopefully we get the English version in 16 or so hours, but it could be 40 or more hours if Crunchyroll doesn’t publish on time. (And yeah, the chapter will be out on Amazon for those wanting to digitally buy it and and have a reader.)

    It is satisfying to see the final battle of the ‘prime’ timeline play out on the page, and the that is a pretty great two page spread showing just about every major player save Eva gathered for the fight. Although if Yue is present for the final battle, that conflicts with how this timeline ended with Yue receiving a visit from Negi and Nagi and merely heard about the final battle, IIRC. Maybe this gets accounted for, maybe its a retcon; if so probably a good one anyways.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I’m not a fan of retcons. But if this were done because they aren’t exactly in the timeline we think, then I’d be OK there.

    • Durra says:

      Nah, that was never stated. The Yue chapter in Negima seems to have occurred a decent amount of time after the final battle with the Lifemaker, and Nagi was busy recovering in that time, and that reunion was just when Nagi was recovered enough to properly meet everyone.

  2. Eight Star King says:

    Why is it that I laughed the moment Kuromaru was shown naked along with Karin and Kirie? The staff knows what’s up that’s for sure XD

  3. Izayoi Arashi says:

    Judging from the PV, JC staff probably plans to start off the anime adaptation somewhere in the middle of the manga. I’m just speculating since the latest key visual had Negi Ialda’s gang in it, along with Touta’s confession to Yukihime in the PV. They would either jump from a certain chapter from the beginning to the 90’s, which would leave anime only watchers bewildered. This is just speculation, So I welcome other opinions.

    Aside from that, this chapter was basically giving us a full action packed space battle with Negi being pushed back by his Ialda possessed dad, along with his lackeys. Good to see Fate’s battle harem again. Always wondered what had happened to them after that battle. The next few chapters will hopefully follow on how Negi and the rest of his team defeat and free Nagi from Ialda’s control, thus, taking us back to the epilogue of Negima, hopefully with added after credits scenes. And after this, Touta and co. would probably use this information they had gained from watching the happy end timeline and brainstorm ideas on what they could possibly do to counter Negi Ialda’s team of broken characters.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Someone else mentioned to me that they thought the PV is for the OAD that’s coming out. I’m not sure if that’s correct or not. That said, it wouldn’t surprise me if the TV anime skips most of the UQ Holder stuff to get to the Negima stuff.

  4. Cat says:

    In the trailer under UQholder it says Mahou Sensei Negima two. Maybe they plan to promote the Negima aspects of the story.

  5. DD says:

    I dont know japanise but i think that this battle lasted 5h and negi new spear is 7th version of it but its awesome anyway . About anime well i hope they introduce other uq holder members we havent seen in manga yet .

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I wouldn’t count on the anime introducing new UQH folks. If anything, existing UQH folks will be introduced and such, but then the focus will be mainly on Negima! elements.

  6. Mattcgw says:

    Something bothered me about konoka and setsuna, is that they’re shorter, than what one would expect from 19 year olds, everyone else looks fine, but those two look like they’re 16 and not biological adults. Especially, if you compare the heights from the colour pages.

    Or Akamatsu-Sensei gave them decreased aging , probably not. But still, an option to consider.
    Also, Ayaka first page, loved that.

    Did not like, Asuna was missing her face. I’ll just blame one of Sensei’s assistants.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Yeah, I did notice that Setsuna still seemed the same age while Konoka and Ku didn’t really seem 19.

      Did not like, Asuna was missing her face. I’ll just blame one of Sensei’s assistants.

      When she first showed up? I think that was on purpose.

  7. Bryce says:

    The chapter images look interesting and get me excited to see what comes next.

    The trailer, however, seems kind of wrong to me, since Kirie’s hair color seems wrong. I might need to take a look at the promo image for the manga again, but I do not remember being blond and blonde characters do not usually get their hair shaded in.

    Oh well, things do not seem to look too bad

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I admit that Kirie’s hair always seems wrong to me when I see it in color. I’m not sure why.

  8. Magine says:

    I was glad to see that the teaser trailer came out, but when I saw it, it gave me the feeling that the scene of the bath of the OVA are of the chapter 96, 97 of the manga. It scares me that the anime begins from the chapter 96 of the manga and not from the beginning, it would skip a lot of story and I don’t know if it also would end up inventing an end like Negima because if the anime starts so advanced, it could reach the manga since it would not have so many chapters, and it is now monthly.

    The OVA will be when Evangeline and Touta meet, I don’t know if Dana will appear in the anime (Maybe that part of the OVA is only from Evangeline’s point of view and we will see Touta appear) I hope I’m wrong and that the anime starts from the beginning being faithful to manga.

    PS: I liked the characters, although I thought Kirie had another hair color and Evangeline seemed strange to me when I saw her.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Well, the UQ Holder version of Eva isn’t quite straight up to begin with, at least in her adult form. As to Kirie, I think early art had her with pink hair. Manga volume covers have made her blonde, but it still doesn’t look right, does it.

  9. TM says:

    Guys, someone please explain about UQH’s plot relate to Negima. (It seems like Parallel world rather same world, some plot didn’t make sense)

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      As best as I can tell, UQ Holder is in a timeline/universe where Asuna was on the Magic World after graduation from school. Some fans theorize that the current timeline is the one Asuna eventually woke up in. I wouldn’t put it past Akamatsu-sensei to do this, but I’m REALLY hoping for some other timeline that accounts for UQH folks. Right now, Dana is showing them how Negi achieved the “happy end” shown at the end of Negima.
