    ^ Yeah that's what I was thinking too....
    ^^; I didn't mean that this asuna was a golem, I was just trying to support my point of the weapon thing. I was kinda thinking of Setsuna's shikigami too, that it's independent and also has telepathic communication with the original without a time limit for it's use...

    "You have other hearts trapped within you as well, dont you?"
    "You're that guy from last time! What are you talking about?!"
    "The other Hearts within you."
    "Hearts trapped within me....?"

    And the next thing we will see:

    1. This spy-girl will taste what it is like to have friends and comrades.

    2. Seeing what a great guy Negi-kun is, she will fall in love with him.

    3. In the end she will leave Fate's side and join Negi's team.

    4. Welcome to the harem.

    Or something like that.

    I always thought that it was quite clear that Asuna was a being of dual natures. She has the magic cancel ability and yet she can perform the contract with Negi and all that that implies, she is also a being of the magic world - the twilight princess to be exact - and she has spent 'round about half her life in the normal world. Does it not stand to reason that being in her native land will rekindle some of her old self? There is also the changing nature of her relationship with Negi to consider.

    As for her actions, she is a very proud girl whose character and actions are guided by the same hand that brought us love hina. We have already seen that Akamatsu-sensei is prone to losing story coherence after too many volumes of the same work. I am awed at his ability to keep it together this long. He has certainly grown as a manga-ka since Love Hina. It is no surprise that any of the MSN characters may have Love Hina~esque moment. :3

    I don't see where you are getting the idea that she has been replaced with a golem or shikigami style creature... Please enlighten me.

    I will definitely say, he is doing an excellent job making me want the chapters to come out faster. I started with the anime some time ago, stopped mid way, finished it up about 3 weeks ago, and started reading the manga and finished about 2 hours ago up to chapter 229. I just want it to go faster again.

    I do have to agree with what flenser is saying. Looking at it(as much as I may have a faulty translation) the text doesn't really make it sway towards her being a pseudo person. Even the images don't really pertain to this. This is just my opinion, but it just seems like she's remembering more and more about her past, which is really starting to play with her personality a little bit.

    *Edit*
    Right now, is there by chance a suspected release date of the next chapter? I realized that they are starting to get a bit further apart by dates that they have been released. I didn't see anything at the end of the chapter. >.>

    Well, I do feel like that the recent chapters are foreshadowing something bad is going to happen to the series...
    But it might have happened before, but I just didn't know since I started reading when 208 chapters were out.

    As for Asuna being fake, most people have dropped that by now.
    It is still evident that she is not acting like herself, as in the chapter Asuna apologized and was not the first one to hit Negi in the head.
    People looked to the name of the ministra, Shiori.
    It means bookmark. The best guess was that She might have done something with Asuna's mind.

    As for the chapter releases, it's just the scanlations.
    Rena, the one who used to provide the RAW dropped Negima. Someone took after her.
    And then, RedHawk also dropped scanlation.
    I guess people just looked at the few chapters and thought that it's a crappy manga series or something...
    *No offense to others, but Negima pwns in plot and storyline.

    Ken takes a break week every 4 weeks.
    So it feels like it's less than once a week, when it actually is.
    Just that it's really a regular week release, and a week is being skipped from time to time.

    God damn... there are only two active threads in this whole forum and it seems people STILL don't keep up to date (aka: reading them every couple days).

    Anyway... Read this thread... or did that discussion start in the RAW thread. In any case, read both, then you'll get your answer. If you're too lazy:

    Asuna doesn't study and is inept at it, therefore she's a Baka Ranger. She's not a fucking retard who would make the =3 face and then break a page in a book everyone already knew was delicate. After "saving" Negi by jumping in against Fate, she said Setsuna was fine, a fact she would have had no way to verify without going back and seeing for herself. The counterargument here is that she could have just been making the assumption, in which case it would have been more likely she said "she can handle herself" or something. Also, her fight wasn't shown.

    feels like i left something out but whatever... i think that's enough...(and that maybe i got some info wrong)

    There better be a good plot twist because this manga's getting too predictable.

    ^

    We're gonna find out Nagi is actually Negi's uncle and that Asuna really is his sister. When the two can't get over the fact that they've been incesting all this time, they'll attack Megalomesembria and destroy half of it before finally committing seppuku.

    well one last thing:

    this

    and this

    Asuna was burned in one scene , and in the next she had no damage OR any burns on her clothes. That's another dead give away.
