^ the only reason he's being "nice" is that he sees negi as a tool that is begging to be used.
What I'm wondering more about is: How does Godel know about fate in the first place? If you remember in the old world, even Eva had no info on him. Neither did Donnet.......
also the question Godel asked at the end..."who stands to gain the most by attacking Negi's village...?"...got me thinking...here are some possible goals.
1. The most obvious goal: Draw Nagi out of hiding and kill of all blood relations at once. By Killing Negi, the possible future crown prince of Ostia, one wouldn't have to worry about him coming back to take the throne.
2. [conjecture] possibly take out a portion of Wales' magic forces.(which was succesful) [/conjecture]
3. [conjecture] Set the son of the Thousand Master down a path that would get him super strong in a matter of 6 or 7 years and lead him back to the magical world. [/conjecture]
.....and agreed....an epic Negi V.S Asuna fight would be awesome
