I knew it.

Effing Big damn Hero Moment? Check.

Dimension travel shenanigans? Looks like it.

Asuna? Yup.

Reinforcements from trans-demensional Class 2-A and their teacher? We can only hope.

Felt like four weekly chapters awkwardly slapped together rather than one, cohesive chapter.

This is what comes from the sin of changing a manga's schedule from weekly to monthly. :no:
The decompressed yet still compressed nature has been changed, Low we are in despair!

I am confused are we still in the memory correct and the nagi and rakan are illusions as well as the asuna that has come to save them.

Also I wonder what the mage of beginnings goal is attacking like this since it is obvious she needs Kouta as much as anyone else is.

Still it is nice seeing eva get flustered about Nagi still.

The attack is more or less needed to break him down: emotionally and physically.

That said, the fact that they are in the MoB womb or whatever just makes things confuzzled.

almost makes it sound like they found the actual form of the MOB that they need to kill to destroy hr once and for all. What I am confused about is they went from yue and the others, thought dead characters, back and for some reason working with MOB, then we go to memories and MOB intruding. And now Asuna arrives and again doubt is real one. 

It is like when they decided to change the name they changed the direction.

ALso I thought about last chapter about how Eva and kouta are basically going to be a couple (eventually). I feel that some of eva's friends from class 3-a a are going to tease her a bit on this, which I would find cute eva reacting to some teasing about her relationship.

It makes no sense at all for Asuna to be an illusion.

The illusions already had Touta and were dragging him down. The Mage of the Beginning had him defeated. It'd have been completely stupid and pointless from her to summon an Asuna to save him, then revive Evangeline, so they could kick her butt afterwards. So she could torture him more, when she'd already effectively broken him, to the point he was telling himself it all was hopeless? I mean, that'd be beyond Cartoon Cobra Commander levels of villain idiocy. Heinz Doofenshmirtz would call that a stupidly contrived selfdefeating plan.

Chapter 131 is out, but nobody has been able to rip it from Crunchyroll, and their online reader has been acting kinda weird.

This thread on 4chan has the pages from scanlations in other languages and translations to english, so it is something.

Ok So asuna's mind is being channeled into tota but Asuna is not doing to channeling, no idea why. Still no idea why Yue and the others are still alive and working for MOB. But at least things now seem to be moving forward.

also apparently uq holder takes place in the bad end timeline, something I didn't know.

As for this chapter I loved it. That face eva makess with the half closed eyes was adorable.

It's more like it's Asuna with her whole memory, aka the Imperial Princess who is doing this and she can connect with Touta because they both have the same power. Yue and the others are probably being mind controlled by the MoB, or they joined her because the MoB is a good girl and totally the hero here. It taking place in the bad ending timeline was something we suspected for a long time, specially when we heard that magic just recently got revealed and that the MoB was still running around.

Also Eva was cute this chapter, she really loves those Springfields eh?

Besides, in this timeline Sayo hasn't moved on yet, something she was said to have done in Negima's epillogue.

Negi's relationship status: It's complicated.

Pretty much the tagline. Seriously just try to make an explanation out of this. Also anyone else think this is the Mahorafest of UQ Holder?

Yeah, even with Eva interrupting a (grand)father - (grand)son moment.

Well, I guess Akamatsu had to weasel out of having Touta go up the tower somehow.

Don't worry, we'll resolve that plot point in the sequel to UQ Holder with the Touta's great nephew's step-son's dog walker as the main character.

The next chapter has updated. But the moodwhiplash hurts. They went from an epic fight to whipping out the chamo-scale and then Cutlass ruined all the fun.

Fucking brutal. This whole chapter was a rollercoaster of emotions, is the first time I see something like that in an Akamatsu manga.

Too. Much. Emotion.

Nice Love Chart call back. If I remember correctly, it means that Kirie has a high lewd and maternal rating according to Chamo's chart.

So Murder Imouto is gonna stick around to pester her older brother? Sure why not.

Well, that's quite the conclusion to that fight.

Also, I'm still really curious who Murder Imouto is related to. I think she may be a Negi/Setsuna clone, but I'm not sure...

Reallly, the only thing I'm kinda certain about is that she looks eerily similar to Kuromaru and mini-Setsuna. Just palette swapped I suppose.

No. No immortal feud.

Kirie forever. Those two deserve it.

The old geezers from the previous generation need to have their own happy ending too.
