Volume 32 (Spells, Nazenani, Commentaries, Mantras, Misora)

Filed under: Updates — CanonRap @ 9:32 pm


My local store: So yeah, your order’s arrived.
Me: Isn’t this… kinda late? Like, 3 weeks late?
Store: Shrug. Oh, and we still don’t have Nekomonogatari yet.
Me: …

Anyway… some bits of new Latin, all of which have already been covered by the various Japanese blogs to your right.

Eva’s instant popsicle:

Gelidus Capulus
凍てつく氷柩 itetsuku hyoukyuu
Freezing Ice Coffin

Yuuna’s card title (of course, there’s no Japanese for this, so this is just an approximation from Latin dictionaries and the info provided by aforementioned blogs):

Strenuus Arcarus
Vigourous Shooter

And of course, the bonus this time is ‘Misora’s Consultation Room’. There are questions for (or, ‘from’) Yue, Natsumi, Akira, Chamo, Anya, Haruna, as well as general fan letters and personal issues. I particularly liked Shiori’s:

This is Shiori. I flutter whenever Fate-sama calls me ‘Shiori-kun’, but I go all hanya~n whenever Negi-san calls me ‘Luna-san’. I’ve thought of changing my name to include both, but picking one of them to be my middle name troubles me. Which is better, ‘Luna Shiori’ or ‘Shiori Luna’?
M: Please have faith in life.
C: Said it again…

There’s also a 3-A affinity and horoscope section, matching it with blood types, and matching up some of the girls.

Will post again as more parts are translated.

PS: Off topic, but I never knew WordPress tracked stats back to 1970.

EDIT:

  • Updated Spells and Affinities a bit, nothing major.
  • Nazenani Negima Vol.32
  • Character Commentary Vol.32 – this is actually incomplete and missing the bits about the voice actor and live-action actor… I think I can be forgiven for not translating those yet. And as I’ve said earlier, I’ll be backtracking and doing the rest of these.
  • A rather barebone Mantras page is now up, also incomplete – I haven’t gone back and done the entries from the Kyoto arc yet. But, better to have up what’s available rather then keep it in the Draft bin forever, right?

The Consultation Room is unsurprisingly (to me at least) not done. Let’s see if I can make some progress this weekend.

EDIT2:

  • Character Commentary Vol.32 complete. Moving on to the previous ones…
  • Consultation Room Vol.32’s character questions are done. Reader questions (including Taketatsu Ayana’s and Hata Kenjirou’s) are in-progress.

  1. Well, Shiori. Lets try using ‘Shiori Luna’… And for Misora, don’t try it again. Remember about sister Shanti’s punishment…

  3. Could it be that the animation adaptations will come to an end with the feature-length animation next year?”
    “That’s the plan for the time being.”

    This bothers me not because it’s the plan, but because of the “for the time being” bit. I hope the movie does well enough and the plan gets changed…

  4. The fans made the movie a reality, didn’t they? Iirc, LE for 23-25 had to meet a certain number of sold copies in order for the movie to be green-lit.

    If so, then hopefully fans will make the movie a moderate (or good enough) success so a second movie can be considered, or at least a good adaptation of the School Festival arc (which should be four cours, and no less).

    • There’s plans for a feature-length animation in 2011. Akamatsu has mentioned it a few times in print and online.
