Mahou Sensei Negima! 306

[scanlation by reddevilshn]

The effects of Magia Erebea are kicking in, and Negi is obviously not himself. The art of the swirling energy is well done every time Magia Erebea appears, even if the art isn’t something I normally notice in Negima. The jagged edges and inverted colors Negi’s appearance takes on help the effect being created.

Excellently appropriate, and not a bad tribal tattoo

A big fight is about to happen. The attacks taking place are of an appropriately large scale, and they’re getting bigger as the fight goes on. A bit of a mini-revelation, for Dynamis to tell us that Magia Erebea is a technique of his master. We know that Negi learned from Evangeline; does that make her Dynamis’s teacher? I doubt it, which means we’re being foreshadowed for a little more story on one of the mages we saw Nagi fighting in his flashback.

Negi is shrugging off no small number of completely devastating attacks, while tossing attacks back that match the output from Dynamis. The return of the lightning spear, but black lightning this time. Maybe Akamatsu Ken is taking some sort of signal from Kishimoto on this being the time to illustrate huge scale attacks. In defense of Negima, it has been doing this sort of thing for a long time now.

While I don’t exactly want to see Negi only win this by being overcome with this sort of dark magic, I much prefer an evil-powered smackdown to the incredibly played out trope of restraining himself before the fight is settled in his favor for some reason like “not wanting to win that way”. All of the girls are trying to stop him, but the one who throws herself in his way is… our newcomer? This is going to be interesting.

This is how to establish a new character

Final Flash: Excellent action, some intense fights, and nothing but more of the same on the horizon.
