As Hoffmann said, Konoka may have the power to heal all the people that were petrified
Well, a thread like this was needed, now on topic I think that "this has only been his hometown from when he was 5 to 10" means that negi went to live there only after his original home was overrun by demons turning everyone into stone.
Who can tell me the similarity between the pictures (that isn't too obvious)?
note: the manga picture is from the recently released chapter 184
oh wow... it's the exact same train. where's the picture taken from ?
Akamatsu is good about backdrop accuracy. He does it with computers and stuff.
I was under the impression that it was the same place but if there are different places then Negi will probably check up on that abandoned village for clues.

1. Finally, everyone is in Wales, how glorious and without worries. But oh, I guess Akamatsu-san forgot that residents in Wales speak English and have the culture of Britain heritage. Examples, why do people of Wales refer to eachother using honorifics such as "san" and "chan"? Oh and since Negi is supposedly English, it would make sense if he called his sister (cousin), sister or cousin. Same thing with Stan Ojii-chan. Suspicous that Nekane knows Japanese FLUENTLY. Or maybe its a translating device.
2. Sayo is in Wales with them! As you can see her resting on Kazumi's shoulder!
3. What of the petrified people? Might Konoka possibly take part in this? (refer to volume eight when Hoffmann infers Konoka's strength and compares it to the petrified people of Wales)
4. How will Nekane react to all these girls with big breasts? Might she act like Anya, or faint as she usual does? o_O
5. Will Ako look for Nagi (the older version of Negi) while in Wales? What will Negi do if he founds out she tries to?
6. What will happen in the Magic Country? Will Asuna's identity be revealed?

Well, here's my two cents at least:
1) This is written for a Japanese audience, so without having to subtitle the next few chapters at the least, a little suspension of disbelief is in order. The British are fluent in Japanese because that is what the author's target audience is fluent in reading. And the cultural norms are also just translated across.
2) Well, they do show in 183 how Asakura managed to get that voodoo doll from Eva to bring Sayo along.
3) Perhaps, although it is questionable if she's progressed far enough yet in her training to undo the spell. But it may also be a plot point to show her doing so.
4) My money's on fainting, especially if she see's Ayaka's private jet!
5) This is an interesting thought, and hadn't occurred to me until I saw it. Hope she does!
6) I'm thinking that some things will start peeling back, and her past will get pieced out to us while they're in the Magic Country, but won't be completed until around the climax of the arc.
But then again, what do I know... I couldn't write my way out of a wet paper bag.
yeah but they could do like what they did in love hina. tell when theyre speaking english or not. like in pararakelse island naru would be sitting in the backround saying woah english. and yeahhhhh
