New chapter is available at Onemanga.
Akamatsu-sensei does not seize to amaze me. I was kind of afraid that the story might get slightly cliched after Negi's arrival to Fate's castle (i.e. beats Fate and other bas guys, gets ahold of the keys, returns everybody back to normal etc.). But seeing Zazi at end of the chapter was totally unexpected for me. No wonder this manga still remains in my top ten.
Oh, and Negi's expression was priceless ^_^
I'm actually very surprised with Zazi's appearance... and possible long overdue character development!
And now I have remembered the black things Zazi used to scare the ghost (forgot her name) with. And that deleting mage was aslo black if I remeber correctly.
I've always thought Zazie's friends were some natural Shadow creatures, like those constructs the Stripper-girl used (forgot her name, like everyone in the manga does...).
At least now we know where she got her little dragon friend, she gave as a present to Chao.
