Well, Negi almost lasted the entire chapter against Eva. That’s not bad, isn’t it?
* I lol’d when Negi freaked out as soon as Eva said she won’t hold back. Even Eva looked surprised when he just got blown away.
* How did it blow his shirt off without affecting his pants? The behaviour of clothes in Negima is probably more unrealistic than the magic which doesn’t exist.
* Eva used Magia Erebea! The names of both the spell she used to power up and its armament form are in Japanese, so we’ll have to wait until the tankoubon, I guess.
* As was already spoiled by the pics, Al reveals that Negi is indeed immortal — specifically, how a vampire can be ‘ageless’ (never grows old) and ‘deathless’. So yes, he really did go through “death and rebirth” through Magia Erebea… just according to the lexicon.
PS: Oh, and Asuna will be entering the fray next chapter. Good timing too, considering Eva pretty much had Negi beat by the end of the chapter.
