Yea, the Holder members need some work, but we haven't gotten to know them as much as the three mains.


Also, is not the gravity blade such a troll-worthy sword?

It takes place in the world of Negima, many many years later. Lotsa people have moved off into space, so more land is becoming abandoned.

The primary plot, which has barely gotten started, seems to focus on immortals, and immortal hunters (immortals including vampires, people with just good healing factors, and so on. So varying degrees).


The main character is a kid (under the care of his badass teacher Yukihime), who's on a journey to the orbital elevator because he wants to go into space, who forcefully befriends at least one other companion (an immortal hunter) along the way.

It is not a direct sequel, so you don't need to worry there. If you like the sound of it, jump in and you won't miss much aside from some references.

yeah, it's pretty a stand alone story though Yukihime is a character from Negima and the main characters seem to share ancestory with other Negima characters.

and yes, Q99, that sword is definitely troll worthy.

Sounds interesting. Sounds so interesting that I might pick up with Negima just to pick up on this new one.




Q99, helping people get through the workday one recommendation at a time.

I will note Negima starts primarily comedy, the shounen fight stuff hits around volume 3 (and said action gets progressively more awesome).


UQ Holder, on the flip side, is action from the start.

If you remember, I quit Negima around chapter 50-70.

Also, do you think the manga got better because the author got better?

Ah, then re-start around there smile

I think a large part of it is because mixing genres worked well for him, and he continued to build on what came before. He did get more polished, but I'd blame it more on the story snowballing and building upon itself. And for people around here, they're of course going to be more interesting in the fight stuff.

well originally, in Negima's case he had wanted to do an action thing from the get-go, but his editors all but forced him to do a comedy/ecchi-ish thing due to how popular Love Hina was. but eventually, he broke away from it on his own via how he wrote the plot.

And that's at least one mystery at least partially revealed.

Bump. Rather nice to see Yukihime in Ice Queen mode again... it seems that even her 'reduced' form is relatively strong...

Strong enough to keep Fate at bay. Hm, I don't know, in a way I feel disappointed. Sure Yukihime back in Negima was powerful enough to pwn Fate back in the Kyoto arc... but a lot of time has past since then and Yukihime is seemingly weaker here than before and yet she still seems to hold the upper hand over him. And he's clearly been training all this time too.

Before, she was notably stronger than end-of-series Negi.

Here, she needs to go Ice Queen. magia erebea in order to fight Fate (who likely hasn't changed in power much, maybe edged up a little), and Fate believes he'll win, just not by enough with other immortals present.

Magic erebea used to be something she found semi-obsolete and now it's needed to hold her own.

Noticed, but even then, I feel her holding the upper hand (Magi Erebea or not) to be kind of odd. Fate was already strong, but there's no way he'd improve by only a little during the time gap between this and Negima.

Fate's reminding me of Kurt from Negima...

Remember, the Fates aren't designed to get stronger from training, and he still likely doesn't train. Fate picked up some techniques and tactics from experience and such (how to break the shields of another Fate, for example), but I don't think his raw magic level changes.
