…Best I can do for now. Busy dealing with life stuff at the moment.
Edit: Something I should clarify…
Back during Negi vs. Rakan, Ricard specifically notes Negi’s melee tactic as “infighting”, which is a martial art term for fighting the opponent from within his guard. Hence “infight” in this chapter.
Oh, and by the way: Light, Wind, and Lightning are all separate elements (whether or not they’re related or derivatives is up to debate). Darkness is also an element. Light spells summon light spirits, lightning spells use lightning spirits, etc.
“Light” path and “Dark” path are ideologies: as Rakan puts it, Light is co-op, and Dark is solo. These are not related to elemental affinity. Negi’s affinities are Light and Wind but he is suited to the Darkness.
