After the event, Mrs. Yukihime and Touta decide to leave town, so they won't cause anymore problems. They are heading to the capital, New Tokyo
I'm so happy that Ken Akamatsu is returning to the Negima's universe, I always love seeing the after match of the happy ending (can't wait to see Jack Rakan). Also glad it going to a smaller cast this time around, it was really hard to remember everyone names last time. Anyway, I was glad seeing Eva playing a bigger role this time around, I was always interested in her character in Negima. I also was interested that Touta's grandfather was Negi Springfield and he seem to be dead.
I only have a couple of problems, in that the main character is just a shonen main character with amnesia. I hope Akamatsu fresh him out later. The other problem I have is that his friends didn't have names, it was kind of hard to worry for their lives. Also, I wondering what UQ Holder mean? All in all, I can't wait for the next chapter
3.5/5 (So so beginning)
