Negima to end after three more chapters
babel writes: So, after nine years, Mahou Sensei Negima! will be ending (but not until the March 15th issue of Weekly Shonen). AKAMATSU Ken will be taking his time to write the three remaining installments. It is uncertain at the moment whether or not these will be extended chapters (as he did with the ending of Love Hina). It is also unknown what, if anything, will follow Negima. Rumors on the anime boards have suggested variously that a 'Negima 2' will be written (with a slightly more adult cast), or that fatherhood has taken it's toll and nothing will be forthcoming for the foreseeable future, though neither of these possibilities has been accompanied by any hard evidence so far...

I for one am very excited. Did you know that Negima was the very first series that I helped scanlate?

Crazy I've been reading it since the beginning... about a decade ago.

Yeah, they could totally have a plot on what happens after 100 years when Asuna wakes up

Ive been reading for quite a long while as well, I think since the dodgeball chapters. Its a bittersweet feeling to see my favorite manga come to a close

thread

» VawX on February 3rd, 2012, 9:10pm

sooo... long, probably because of the breaks Akamatsu-sensei took every now and then mmm...

Same here. Heres to hoping for Negima 2

Weird, did the topic with his father got resolved yet? Sorry if this question is stupid, I have only been following the story loosely.

thread

» ylchow on February 3rd, 2012, 6:20pm

Yeah, his father got body jacked by the arch villain

thread

Hmm I remember start reading it at some time, I eventually stopped for some reason.
Good time to read the whole thing from start to end!

I really am going to miss the series, almost a decade filled with laughs and cries in the story. I hope this series paved the way for something new and better.

» pcheshire on February 3rd, 2012, 4:40pm

I hope for a 15-year old Negi!!

thread

» Shakaku on February 4th, 2012, 2:57am

I second that, there has just got to be a Negima II.

thread

» Kemm on February 8th, 2012, 7:44am

I think that should be impossible, since he became an unaging monster...

thread

» cele on February 3rd, 2012, 4:40pm

I completely understand that because honestly, it got boring with the last fight (with dead people getting back usw.) which was just deus ex machina overkill. And there isn't much left to tell (except for the search of his father, which i believe could be handled in negima 2 if there will be such), just hope that the romance issue gets resolved (thank GOD its not asuna)

thread

» ylchow on February 3rd, 2012, 6:24pm

bigrazz, Jack Rakan was too awesome to be erased. Anyway, this is a light-hearted series lah. Besides, compared to the earlier battles, the last fights were quite brief.

thread

» uzumakiwalid on February 3rd, 2012, 5:39pm

Now that's surprising. Negima is in fact the first adult-oriented manga that i read besides anything else. Let's see whether Negima 2 will be out and satisfy our(Negima's reader) curiousity with Negima's cliffhanger...... or not.

thread

» T1 on February 3rd, 2012, 6:08pm

cool, I didn't know that...

Did you know that Negima wasn't one of the first series I scanlated?
/me feels very old now D:
Thanks for that T.T

I hope that the cast will get older if he does a negima 2...more sexier chicks :3
He may stop going: Screw scanlation, I strike (wouldn't be first time he would complain about scanlations, lol)

Well....we had a story for another arc....but he's gonna end it like this, so I wonder how this is gonna work out with his dad and such as the final boss....

thread

» Demigodrickli on February 3rd, 2012, 11:48pm

There is definitely gonna be a negima 2. But I'm guessing it's gonna be MUCH MUCH more action adventure and fantasy elements.

lambchopsil: "I for one am very excited. Did you know that Negima was the very first series that I helped scanlate?"

Hell, I knew I'd seen your name before when I first joined here, but I couldn't place it exactly. Now I remember, it was at Aquastar when they took over from Meow scans wasn't it? I used to visit their Negima boards quite a lot back then. Good times. You had the amazing Sushi-Y translating back then, and I remember she was kind enough to post the scripts there for those who couldn't wait for the editing (well, until someone started stealing the scripts of course.... same old story eh?).

You got it~ Good times

Ok, i was expecting another ark or something but my expectations were completely destroyed... i hope we dont get a crap ending

So long as he ties it all up I'll be reasonably happy/satisfied.

Still in 3 chapters with so much.....

thread

» Milleniummaster18 on February 5th, 2012, 2:33am

Glad Negima's reaching its conclusion, it just kept dragging on, and on, and on. The whole Magic World arc had a ridiculous amount of exposition for basically nothing.

It was entertaining, yet it's a smart move to end it, we don't want a series that sucks overall because of too much filler, eh?

Let's see if this story continues after the time skip.

thread

» draksig on February 5th, 2012, 5:05am

I hope there is a sequel since I doubt there will be enough time to tie off all of the loose ends. Finding his father, freeing Evangeline, who does negi like?

thread

» M-ols on February 5th, 2012, 12:43pm

I hope there is a "season 2" since, as far as I remember, the whole point of the story was that Negi wanted to find his father. Him being a mage and going to a school as a teacher were all results of this if I remember correctly. And I do remember this correctly. He also wanted to resurrect his village if I am not wrong. Sooooo, even if it is logical to end this manga (he was never going to be a permanent teacher, we knew that from the very beginning), the main objectives have not been accomplished.

» wishbone89 on February 6th, 2012, 7:01pm

I'm absolutely devastated, having just read 351 and 352, i may not read the rest because i almost cried, not shaping towards an ending i want.

thread

» darknegi25 on February 9th, 2012, 10:32pm
