This thirty-seventh volume and penultimate volume of the 'Negima!' manga sees the series move away from the epic battles to the lighter harem comedy of the series' first couple of volumes. While I still love the series and there are some very nice scenes in this volume, even I will admit that from this volume on 'Negima!' is a little disappointing when compared to what came before. While there is still a lot of very nice comedy throughout this volume an at least one decent fight, the change in tone was a little jarring for some. The volume does give a hint of what could have happened with the series had it continued with Negi revealing the details of his far reaching plan to save the Magic World and there are a couple of nicely emotional moments included in the volume as well.
The volume includes the usual extras such as fan art, translation notes and the like.
Although I personally still enjoyed this volume and consider the series as a whole to be one of my favourite works of fiction, I know some fans were very disillusioned with the series due to this and the final volume.
While not anywhere near as good as some of the volumes that have come before, I still found this penultimate volume of 'Negima!' to be entertaining and I would give it a solid four stars.
Continuing the conclusion of the Magic World arc, this thirty-fourth volume of the `Negima!' manga is another brilliant instalment of the series. The volume incudes some great battles and has some nice twists to the plot that make the volume very entertaining to read. Highlights of the volume include the assault on the Great Altar that allows for Ala Alba to show how good they are without Negi, and Kaede's battle against a foe far more powerful than she is.
Overall this was another brilliant volume of `Negima!' and despite a few minor annoyances about the translation and the relative lack of extras when compared to earlier volumes, this is still worth a full five stars.
This final volume can be split into three parts. The first section of the volume sees the completion of the Sports Festival arc and sees the girls of 3-A attempt to get the name of the girl he likes out of Negi. The Sports Festival arc is somewhat maligned by fans as it returns the series to the more comedic style of the first couple of volumes. Personally I find this arc quite funny in places with some nice gags (although some do fall a little flat, such as Chizuru's Artefact) and an interesting look at how the 3-A girls can work together when they want to. We also see Akira finally getting a pactio.
The second section sees Asuna have to undertake her duty to help stabilize the Magic World. This is an incredibly emotional section of the volume and probably has some of the saddest scenes in the entire manga. This section does a very good job of showing how much Asuna means to everyone, as well as how much they mean to her (the sections involving Asuna and Ayaka's relationship are especially moving). This section is brilliantly done and I personal think that it is worth a full five stars all on its own.
The final part of the volume is the epilogue set seven years after the series proper. The epilogue sees Makie's younger brother request help of Yue to track down an underwear thief. This is an entertaining epilogue, if a little light, that has a brief but fun battle. The epilogue finishes with information on what the various characters do after the end of the series and while some fans were disappointed with the ultimate fate of many of the girls (Chisame and Akira especially) I quite like them.
The main bad point about this volume are that it is somewhat rushed and this is somewhat understandable if some of the rumours surrounding the end of the series are true. As well as this there are still a lot of unanswered questions and missed potential in the series with our final look at the Class Roster hinting at the many adventures that were missed. There is a note from Ken Akamatsu at the beginning of the volume saying that he would like to come back to the series one day but more resent interviews have stated that he is thinking of retiring when his next series (to start sometime in Summer 2013) finishes
The volume also includes the usual author's notes, translation notes and fan art.
Overall I loved this series and while this final volume could have been a hell of a lot better, I did still enjoy it and can give it nothing less than a full five stars.
