319 summary (fixed)

Filed under: Updates — CanonRap @ 11:59 pm

Who is correct…? The answer is known only to each other’s fists!!

The fight between Negi and Fate begins with them knocking each other back from their first hits. Just as Negi blows Fate off the platform with a kick, Chiu and the girls notice Asuna with Shirabe.

Negi fires a 1001-arrow Sagitta Magica arrow barrage (the same amount he used against Rakan). Fate thinks that, despite being such a simple magic, it is an attack reminiscent of the Thousand Master; the barrage doesn’t seem to hit him, but Negi’s already made his way over for a 1001-arrow Ouka Houken. Fate manages to intercept him with Kakon Omma Petroseos – literally fired from his eye, interestingly – and Negi’s fist is petrified.

Just as Negi is dodging another barrage of petrification beams, he sees Fate use Pnoe Petras, the spell that he was hit with in Kyoto. Collet is shocked because she’s never seen a petrification spell on this scale before. Negi launches a Jovis Tempestas Fulguriens at Fate, which at the same time clears the cloud away.

Takane asks Haruna if Fate was downed by the spell, but Fate appears behind Negi with his swarms of black blades. Negi punches his way through most of them, but then sees that Fate had prepared another, even bigger barrage of stakes.

EDIT: I was just translating the chapter and realised I read this line wrong. My bad.

This is what surpassed Jack Rakan. Jack Rakan had endured this.

How about you? Negi-ku…

Negi, in Lightning Form, is already next to him, punches him into the floor below the Altar, and chases after him. However, just before he connects, Fate punches him away, telling him that Rakan had already revealed the proper response to the technique during the Tournament, and to hold nothing back.

Negi smiles (after a bit of shock at finding out that Fate had watched the match) and upgrades to Raiten Taisou 2, asking if Fate is satisfied, and commenting that Fate was smiling a lot today for someone who was always expressionless. Fate simply answers that it was because this was fun; to him, this battle was his only wish.

Fate takes the time to contact Shirabe and tells her to continue the ritual. However, she is attacked by Ku and then Anya. Shirabe manages to avoid both and heads for the Altar instead, but is barred by Nodoka and Natsumi (still bound).

And finally, Fate’s last line:

Now, show it to me.

Your everything.

Being a fighty chapter, there’s not much to translate. The new spells will be pretty fun to work on. Anyway, see you all Saturday.



  1. LOL, Fate and Negi look like they are enjoying this a lot more than anything. It’s actually kinda awesome.

    • It’s like Fate’s just handing the whole thing over to Shirabe so he can go fisticuffs with Negi.

      Oh, and I just realised, is the title (“1000% Battle!”) supposed to be a reference to the Negima?! OP? ^^;

      • Probably that and the way Negi has gone over9000. Also, 1001 Sagitta Magica.

    • Fate did sort of skip over the whole “lol rewriting reality” bit. Welp, never mind, turns out I translated it wrong.

      And yeah, go foe yay!

  7. From what i heard a long while back his older translator, the one who helped him with the Latin or Greek name for the spells & other things, quit/left his job around the time of Raken & Negi’s fight.

    I don’t remember whether he got a new one or not, but from what i heard, because of it the usage of Latin-Greek names in the story has decreased quite a lot since then.

  8. that’s too bad 😦 I hope he’ll get a replacement soon. One thing that I like about Negima is that latin spell that they always use.

  9. Besides what SL said above, I believe the spells were “dumbed” down for the 2nd generation Negima readers (around preteen age) since there were some fans that gave feedback about the spells being “too hard to understand”. If I’m not mistaken I recall this being mentioned in the AQS forums, ne
