Negima Volume 37

Filed under: Updates — CanonRap @ 12:58 am

Well, it's here.

Still a little bitter after 354 and its… unfortunate treatment of my favourite character, but anyway. Personally, the main reason I bought this was for the Pactio Cards, and I’m fairly certain that was the motive for a lot of us.

That said, the only real changes are the signatures on the back and the FABULOUS sparkly coat on the front (on this, I’ve already expressed my apathy elsewhere when it was first announced) so…

No actual difference, no.

Though I did like the signatures on the back, since Negima does have several of my favourite female voice actors.

Clockwise from top left: Kuwatani Natsuko, Itou Shizuka, Asumin, Aipon, NotoMami, Matsuoka Yuki, Shiraishi Ryouko, Yu

I haven’t touched the DVD yet, and to be honest, I’m not sure I ever will.

Now, for the extras: the Nazenani in this volume is rather frivolous, but here it is in all its laconic glory:

Is Negima going to end?
It will end in the next volume.

The Affinities has been massively updated with all the new information from the Pactio Cards. Some of the new information is very interesting – the extra celestial affinity from the Bible finally get used (well, one, at least) and there’s also stuff that is completely new and not seen anywhere else before.

And as usual, new Spells that had been in Japanese got their Latin and Greek. Mainly, Anthos Pagetou Khilion Eton [Ανθοσ Παγετου Χιλιων Ετων] and Krustalline Basileia [Κρυσταλλινη Βασιλεια], both Eva’s.

  1. I decided that I will go ahead and watch the DVD. Can’t say that I’m really looking forward to it, but there ya go.

    I also, sort of wish that the pactio set contained some other, known pactio cards, but oh well.

  2. If you are to watch the DVD, I think it would be better to just get the fansub rip instead since that’s nicely post-processed lol.

    Seconding ANB, I would love some of the other Pactio cards in as well.

    Maybe Akamatsu will be a bastard and release an LE of 38 with ALL the Pactio cards. With a non-foil background. Then shit… lol

  3. They aren’t even bothering with the Nazenani anymore, are they? It’s really sad to see Negima ending in such a whimper.

  4. sucks that the next volume won’t contain a LE, i guess that means no shiori pactio.

  5. @ANB, Kurogane, blu: Yeah, it’s a shame there won’t be any other Pactio Cards.

    @OverMaster: I agree. The series is ending on a rather low note, unfortunately.
