Atrum: I'm for NegiXAsuna pairing, but I easily accepted that they're related because they're relation could be with a wide gap in between considering the two situations that I gave in my first post of this page. So don't fret, ayt? ;)
Quincy: I think the Labirynthus that Nodoka and her treasure hunter friends went and Arika's prison was one and the same. Just an opinion on this, though.
Shinigamis: THIS week is the break week. By Saturday or Sunday, you can expect spoilers to pop up again.
di: Maybe both? And Asuna older than Nagi???Hmmm...I like your sig, you're really into it, huh?
ivanov: I sourced mine from Hata of AQS. Your PS note was not a feasible one but a probable one. As long as they are not a mother-daughter tandam, it's fine. Your 2 points left me thinking as well. I think (IMHO)on no. 1 it's because it's her known name to the pactio partner. On no. 2, Maybe her real name (the long one) will appear just like she did to Brigitte aka Shirabe.
I'm 85 to 90% sure that Asuna's a fake in any way. There's only one event left unproven to make a full conclusion on her being a fake one.
According to the Wikipedia Negima article, Nekane is twenty-three-years old. Her father is Nagi's older brother. Nekane's father was one of the pertified victims during the Demon raid on Negi's home village. Her father's name is unknown. He seem to be a village leader.
If Asuna was replaced by a fake, the fake's identity will be easily exposed. Jack is being careful to avoid mentioning Asuna's name during his Al Rubra story. As long as Jack doesn't metion Asuna's name, the fake will not exposed. Jack is focus on the Al Rubra. Arika is an important part of Jack's story. At the present time, Arika is a candidate to be Negi's mother.
Hmm... Arika Hime and Asuna came from the same family. And Arika hime "Might" be Negi's mother... so in other word... Negi and Asuna are cousin?
This was a good chapter, i loved how Nagi was slaped twice XD.
Is it that i'm the only one that doesnt believe that Arika couldn't be Negis mom? though it seems that many have made some good observations .
wonder if there's an episode two of Rakan Sets Out or something....
Way I see it, she won't be Negi's mom but she'll somehow die and ask Nagi to take care of Asuna. I mean, I'm waiting for a major plot twist rather than just going straightforward and revealing her as Negi's mom.
AQS released 230 and 231
Wow, I haven't checked their work for a long time
It's nice that they're using the volume scans :)
yeah already got them a while back when they were still torrent only ;)
though I actually prefer magazine scans for online scanlations.. I know volume scans look better but I like the insert text at 1st/last page and the next chapter previews, both of which are missing in volumes..
notice how the badass insert text is gone in the (admittedly better looking) volume scan :)
... is AQS only doing tankoubon now?
can't say for sure but it's quite possible.. vol 26 is out soon and RAWs will shortly follow, AQS might release the first chapter or two from 26 based on magazine RAWs but the rest of the volume will be based on tank RAWs..
that's my guess anyways :)
