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