As for this arc, I don't think it will end with just finding everyone else and then going home. Otherwise the trip that Takahata and Mana wnt through would have been useless, and besides Fate and co. are up to something, and I have a feeling Negi's dad is involved as well. You guys probably already suspected this, but now it's more open.
As for Negi's dad, does anyone else get the feeling that the reason why he went missing, was because he sided with someone in this book that would be considered an antagonist?
I actually had the feeling that Nagi is the big boss in the shadows or something... but that's just me...
oh and Fate's back at 209...
Now that Negi has accepted darkness, he will gradually become evil and pull all his team with him. Then, it will be Yue's turn to become the main character, gather the remaining people, find new friends, and save the world from Negi.
Through such a development would mean Negima is going to last a long, long while.
Or... maybe the dark powerz will influence Negi to impregnate all 30 students...
Aquastar Anime just published their scanlation of chapter 208. The real one this time. You can get it at their website.
Overall a slightly better translation than the one from Franky House, though I prefer FH's edit.
But... "Your original landscape" ?

Yeah, I saw that too, "original landscape". I suppose it made sense at the time.
In AQS's defense their lead TL is on vacation so I suppose he either a) rushed to do it before he left, b) did it drunk while on vacation or c) let the 'apprentice' (for lack of a better word) TL do it this week.
I took a look at the editing. To me it looks like Franky used some heavy levels and maybe took the blur tool to it (the grids/screens didn't stand out as much as they do when I try leveling the picture) and then used the pen or pencil tool to cover the dirt on the pitch black. The only thing I though was a little off was how the lost some of their midtones (probably from the leveling, check Eva's skirt on page 7).
AQS did alright with the levels (they still have nice midtones), but they left a lot of dirt behind which kind of spoils it. It wouldn't have been so apparent if they had cleaned up outside the frames like Franky.
So I have to say Franky wins for editing(sigh), but the raw was so rough and full of dirt that either one's pretty good considering.
Thats my commentary on editing though take it with a grain of salt because I'm still a Photoshop noob.
ps: I don't care if you care I learnt something from writing this.
