    I did not expect Negi to face any problems during his trip to the Magic World. The trip to the Magic World has a lot of action in it. Ken has carefully continue to focus on the relationship part of the series. Ako's flashbacks are a reminder that Ken has not forgotten the importance of the relationships in the series.

    The recent focus on action mostly reflects Negi's determination to help four of his students, and to prove everyone's innocence. Negi is acting more like a young adult than a typical ten year old. Negi could have accepted Fate's offer, but he seems to notice the importance of saving the Magic World.

    All Negi had wanted to do was to find his father. The Fates have been transforming Negi into a hero like his father. The series is following the basic Shonen formula. Since the series has its share of female fans, Negima is more than your average Shonen series.

    You just expected him to waltz in and be like "Oh! There's my dad!", live happily ever after, and then it ends?

    it's the magic arc with fate's group if you had to think their wouldn't be a lot of fighting in this your deluding yourselves.

    I'll admit i wanted more short arcs about the girls and side adventures in the magic world, but the moment ARENA popped up, you honestly THAT surprised about the shonen aspect?

    i would admit that it is getting more shounen-ish but i would also have to admit that i like it better (kind of) i mean at least they are fighting for a reason different reason other than destroy evil. i also wouldn't compare it to other mangas of the shounen genre especially bleach.
    one reason is that negi used is ultra powerful tech in the beginning unlike other shounen mangas *cough naruto, bleach and others who are guilty of using ultimate techs lastcough*. also another reason is that negi hasn't one any major battle save for herman. i mean he has lost to fate, eva (multiple times) and albiero. he only won against against takamichi because like eva said he was fucking around. takamichi didn't even show his better techniques till the middle of the match, he also let negi win. i mean he got up right away and after that he was friggin investigating what chao was doing.
    this is why i still say it is a possibility that negi still could lose against rakan, especially since rakan decided to go all out.

    I also like the shounen-ish elements in Negima.. although it's KA's first manga with those elements but his choreography and combat system puts other fighting-dedicated mangas to shame, not to mention that those elements help extend the lifespan of a manga greatly..

    and while I also think that the current arc is too focused on training and battling, it was inevitable with Negi's chase after his father..

    I guess we'll just have to wait out the magic world arc as Heartlessfang said..

    well to be honest after Eva's training I expected the troubles of the magic world to be little more than a nuisance to Negi's group so I was totally surprised with all that annihilated by Fate's group, scattered, enslaved, and were setup for crimes and corresponding bounties..

    Negi's only interests in the Magic World were to find vital information about his father, and to do some sight seeing. Fate's attack on Negi and framing the Al Alba were part of a twist. While Negi and the Al Alba did expect some action on the Magic World, they didn't expect to be fugitives from the law, and to see more action.

    Negi and the Al Alba has found some allies during the tournament. Three of their allies have the power to pardon Negi and the Al Alba. If necessary, these three allies have the money to free Negi's enslaved students.

    You think only six-twelve months of training will turn him into a master?

    Yeah, if only it were that easy.

    Actually I thought that Negi was at Fate's level at the end of the festival arc....until we discovered that Negi has been nowhere near his level for a while......

    "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....?"

    no I did not think that.. I just thought that he'll encounter more reasonable adversity than what he got..

    I remember Eva saying something like 'you won't have any trouble unless you run into the real deal' I didn't expect him to run into this 'real deal' thing so relentlessly and consistently, I expected it to happen maybe once at their journey back to the real world after fending off a slew of slimes and the occasional dragon..

    but he suddenly had to deal with Fate who turned out to be stronger than Sukuna, and Fate's a party of 1000+ level underlings, then eventually ended up duking it out with Rakan who is at his father's level..

    besides.. why can't he become a master in 6-12 months if he can master Japanese in 3 weeks
