I should have seen that one coming. I forgot that Fate’s other name was Show ▼

They need Negi. Now. And Nagi. Plus Jack Rakan for good measure. Then they might just have a chance…

In other news, the next Negima OAD is out, this one being all about Yue’s plight after being trans-located and losing her memory. I think it’s probably the best one yet. The others suffer by being made from filler material, being a transition in the story, or requiring many skips, but this was a pretty self-contained side story, and a good one at that.

  1. Oh, heck. The last one looks like a girl, donchathink?

  2. Also: now we know why he volunteered information instead of letting Nodoka read his mind.

    I’m just hoping that the fact that there’s three and aligned with specific elements means they’re individually weaker. There’s nothing to base that hope on though. Show ▼

    I actually think that it is worse than it looks at first glance.

    1. Latin ordinals can end in -us (male), -a (female), and -um (neuter). That and all the mention of dolls implies that the Averruncus are themselves neuter. Yet one is clearly female. (Look at the hips, and the different cut of the clothing.)

    2. The bad guys have a big ol’ collection of minds in cold storage. The use of appointment kind of suggests that the dolls are activated by pulling an able and compatable mind out of storage and loading it into the doll. (Some brainwashing might also occur.)

    3. We know, or at least it is implied, that the first and second are dead, and one of these may have activated the third. Show ▼

    4. Show ▼

    Very sorry for the spoilers. I meant to have the list in 4, and the text for each of the sides hidden in spoilers.

  6. Ubu Roi says:

    Sorry Pat, somehow I missed yet another group of messages in storage — for two weeks this time.

    As for spoilers, most of it is speculation, and the rest, I got it.
