WHAT IS GOING ON

– Okay, first things first. I did look over that line of Secundum’s again. Of course, when I was first translating it, I was fairly entirely sure of my translation. After looking it over a few more times, I can’t say for sure I know for sure what that sentence means, or more precisely, what exactly is being “gently and thoroughly enjoyed” – though I’m leaning towards Secundum enjoying the humans, what with his “delicious” comment earlier which I had forgotten about. If this sounds like a really non-committal answer… well, it is. In any case, I apologise for what was likely a mistake.

– Takamichi uses the term 極大魔法 ‘kyokudai mahou’ (“maximum/greatest/titanic” “magic/spell”) to refer to what Negi and Fate are using. I don’t recall ever seeing this term in the series, but it certainly fits.

– On page 4, in the close-up frame of Asuna, the onomatopoeia suggests that Asuna is starting to awake.

– I’m not sure what to think on Negi disappearing after the handshake deathmatch, with Fate literally standing there alone until Nagi popped up.

– Kosmo Entelekheia ‘flowing backwards’… this one’s a bit weird. Presumably, this is what allowed Negi to see Fate’s memory first-hand, and is causing the ‘images’ in Negi to take form. If this is the reversal of Kosmo Entelekheia is supposed to be, does that mean the real thing actually seals everything inside one consciousness?

Or maybe I just forgot something.

  1. Nah, that’s what seems to be happening (in relation to Kosmo Entelekheia)… though you have to wonder what the hell would cause that. Did Negi lose the handshake battle and get sent, however briefly, to KE, only to reconstitute himself from pure magic? Because that would be awesome.

    • That would certainly explain why he disappeared for a moment (and it clearly wasn’t just Fate seeing as no one else could see Negi). And incredibly awesome.

      Though as one fan asked of Akamatsu, “how much stronger will Negi-kun get?”

      • But if that were the case, as stated by Dynamis when he was about to send Nodoka to Cosmo Entelekheia, Negi would have left behind a body. Although I’m not sure if he meant her soul would be sent after killing her.

  2. Only thing I can say is that going by Albireo’s comment and Fate’s on page 16, Asuna has something to do with that wierd stuff about Cosmo Entelecheia. Maybe the fact that she’s waking up is reversing its effects?

    • Hopefully the next chapter will explain this. The story’s been in dire need of more straight answers for a while now.

  4. That deal with Nagi and Rakan… considering that they also appeared in Negi’s “mind-scape” when he was in ME-induced coma… reminds me of Ionioi Hetaroi from Fate/Zero – Iskander’s “personal world” that can be temporarily written over real world and contains an army of heroic spirits of his past army.

    Alternatively, Negi (somehow) “channeled” Nagi and Rakan – seeing as only one of those three was actually there at every moment.

  5. It’s been said that the Thousand Thunderbolts is the most powerful spell from the Lightening series. Given that Tearing Earth’s incantation is similar, maybe that’s what TTT is talking about when he says “ultimate” magic.
