    What wories me the most is that fights in Negima are all about magic kung-fu now. There are so many interesting ways to use magic in combat, yet all strongest mages in MSN seems to be martial artists. Where are all the ranged magic specialists, demonologists, summonners, necromancers, DOT'ers and such? It's all about magical punching right now.

    And Negi surpassing Eva in ME is stupid beyond reason. 10 years old kid after one month of training surpassed a shinso vampire who spended 10 years developing ME and then used it for centuries... I hope it turns out that scroll Eva was created right after real Eva developed ME and don't have any memories beyond that.
    Lol shounen.

Especially if you have the speed to keep away from him and sword that can cancel all his ranged attacks. The fact Negi almost beat him in close combat make it even more ridiculous.
    On rakan: you're missing the entire point that Negi's plan centered around Rakan fighting him fist to fist.
    On Eva:

    @Ivanov: thanks for the ch/page. I was just making the assumption because Arika was imprisoned at Noctus Labyrinthus after McGill/Fate HEADSHOT!, and Rakan said during the fight that he fought the legendary thunder thing at Noctus Labyrinthus.

    @mist: I reread some of the fights recently... almost all of them, if not ALL of them, went:
    1) Espada/Arrancar: "omfg im so strong you can't win"
    2) Shinigami: "You're mom says you can't win! I will defeat you."
    3) E/A: "MY MOM?! Don't talk bout mommy like that!" *releases
    4) S: "Oh shit, I'm boned."
    5) E/A: "Yeah, suck it bitch."
    6) S: "PSYCHE!!"
    - insert one of the following:
    a) S: I'm gonna go 100% now and rape you :: E/A: I'm going to win by severely underestimating you
    b) Oh, it turns out my ability perfectly counters yours/is a better version of yours
    c) I'M KENPACHI THE RAGING BADASS PIRATE SHINIGAMI, ASSHOLE!!
    d) Oh... wow. Kubo's giving a damn about his work again.

    A and B were most prominent. Kenpachi's obvious. Rukia was D >.> Her fight was siiiiiiick.

    What? You mean those scientifically designed runes/insignias/whatever on her body?

    ^it feels like ME to me, the effect it gives, the way it look like... only it's a different form of ME (perhaps it because she's from the future i think). in all i still see it as ME.

    eh? chao with ME? naah. it just graphically looks similar.

    ME allows the user to absorb his own offence magic he created himself, thus powering up his stats, and obtaining effects related to the magic's nature. ex: absorb thunder= move at high speed.

    Chao's symbols were just some kind of rune thing that allowed a normal person to absorb the magic particles that is present in the environment and use magic.

    some effects are similar, but they are different stuffs.

    meaning: look similiar. actually it look more complex then the one negi made. it cover her hole body

    actually ME allow your body absorb spiritual or magical energy (either your own or your enemy's) and making it have more magical or spiritual power or/and become whatever it is you absorb. negi learn it to surpass fate magical level which is higher than him right
    Chao's symbols were just some kind of rune thing that allowed a normal person to absorb the magic particles that is present in the environment and use magic.

    forcing magical particle that is present in the environment absorb into herself and make her body has more magical power than it used to.
    meaning: give similiar effect. and for what negi said that time, it also give a similiar after effect
    that's why i said it' is ME in a different form . but basically it is still ME.

    my bad, forgot that negi could absorb enemy magic.

    i guess you are right to some extent. an analogy i can think of is birds fly, airplanes fly, helicopters fly, similar, but different at the same time.
