Ken just has no room for the rest of the arc, the the pacing is all off.
Anyways, I'd like to question what the theme is.
I mean, Negi's supposed to be sadistic, right?
Him being a nice little innocent teacher at Mahora is just a facade, no?
He's truly fueled to wreak veangence on the people who destroyed his village.
After, all he's hellbent stubborn, and just won't listen to his friends' advices to take it easy and leave some load of work to them. (Light Route)
In turn, he goes to the dark magic for easy and fast power.
Interesting note: Among what Negi reflected in his test, he finally recounted his father's "You should be yourself."
I always thought that Negi is a really serious guy and was always being himself, perhaps maybe concealing his true feelings from his students.
However, maybe it is the pursuit of his father that made him like that.
Anyways, at the end, he seemed to learn to finally trust his friends. (lol)
Light rejects the Dark. But dark takes in everything, including light?
Then again, I could be overanalyzing bullshit.
soo much things to say....
1. yaay, what i predict long ago might come true.. there's a chance that fate will end up in negima team... (well he is "fate of the earth" so it's a must that he'll be back to earth)
2. negi finally confess to eva (even though it's just a bunshin). her blushing is a definite win moment.
3. umm... is this mean that scrolleva will be no more T__T
4. so he finally understand what it meant to be dark..not just to put everything inside you but also to accept everything, even deaths.. and move on
5. akira's pactio next... the moment we've all been waiting for ^__^
btw what is the use of that giant syringe anyway?? it's too huge to be use to someones body.. and what's the point of the neko nurse outfit??
somehow i got the feeling that yuuna's gun artifact was used by her mom b4
Wow, so the definition of dark is rather pleasant.
well the end result is pleasant. but darkness is not the result, it's the process how you get there...
try answering this:
your father has been murdered. can you see your father dead body, knowing how he got killed, knowing who killed him, accept all of those and move on with your live without the tiny bit feeling of revenge?? if so you can handle the dark part of you. in real life i believe this is where religion/faith comes out. it help you handle yourself.
I think I kinda get the gist.
In the beginning, Negi can be considered Lawfully Good.
He does good things, but bury his strife.
Even though he was trying to be good like his father, he was carrying out his vengeance.
Only after accepting his dark side and negative feelings, and immersing in them, can he truly understand what dark is, and overcome it.
