Class 3-A


#1: Aisaka Sayo (相坂 さよ)

Age: 77 (appears 15)
Birthdate: ?, ?, 1925
Bloodtype: Unknown
Likes: Convenience store at midnight
Dislikes: The School at night
Club: Anyone she wants to be in that doesn't involve items she has to pick up.

Note: The hapless and meek yurei. More often frightened than frightening, Sayo haunts seat #1. She is invisible to virtually everyone and her presence goes unnoticed until Negi absentmindedly counts her during a class vote.


#2. Akashi Yuuna (明石 祐奈)

Age: 14
Birthdate: June 1, 1988
Bloodtype: A
Dislikes: Bad Clothes, shirts hanging out, sloppy lifestyle
Clubs: Basketball

Note: An athletic girl who plays basketball and is a friend of Makie Sasaki, Ako Izumi and Akira Ookouchi who are also in the school sports clubs. She loves her father who happens to be a professor. It is unclear if this professor works at the Mahora Academy.


#3. Asakura Kazumi (朝倉 和美)(A personal favorite of mine! <3)

Birthdate: January 10, 1989
Bloodtype: O
Astroloogical Sign: Capricorn
Likes: The Big Scoop, Human-Interest Stories, Cameras
Dislikes: Great Evil
Clubs/Affiliations: Journalism Club, Reporter for the Mahora Newspaper.

Notes: 1. Known as the Human Database of 3-A, she has a talent for gathering information. She has excellent grades and the fourth largest breasts in class.

2. The resident class reporter always with a camera on hand. She likes to get the inside scoop on everything that goes on. She is also one of the few girls in the class to know of Negi's secret, which she found out while investigating who had proclaimed their love to Negi. She is currently staying silent about it, and is occasionally seen plotting with Chamo. An additional feature of Kazumi that is perhaps often mentioned by male readers is with regards to her breasts.


#4. Ayase Yue (綾瀬 夕映)

Age: 14
Birthday: November 16th, 1988
Blood Type: AB
Likes: Reading
Dislikes: Studying

Note: The cool slacker. Despite being talented, she hates studying and keeps being amongst those who have the lowest grades in the class. She is a member and leader of the "Baka Rangers", the nickname for the five lowest scorers in Negi's class (she is the "Black Ranger"), and is a member of the Library Exploration Group, often hanging around with Haruna and Nodoka. She is a strong supporter of Nodoka, and encourages her to develop a relationship with Negi. She is also one of the few girls in the class to know of Negi's secret, which she found out all by herself by figuring out the clues and strange incidents since Negi's arrival. In fact, she was the one who called Kaede, Ku Fei and Mana for help when the Kansai Magic Association headquarters was attacked by the people who kidnapped Konoka at Kyoto. She is sometimes seen drinking tomato milk.

RUMOR: Some passages in the Del Rey translation imply that she may also be Konoka's cousin.


#5. Izumi Ako (和泉 亜子)

Age: 14
Birthday: November 21st, 1988
Blood Type: A
Responsibilities: Health Officer
Likes: Cute Band-Aids, Cleaning
Dislikes: Blood, Fights

Note: A shy athletic girl who plays soccer and works as a school nurse's assistant. She has a scar over the back of her waist and is a friend of Makie Sasaki, Akira Ookouchi and Yuuna Akashi who are also in the school sports clubs. She is also the coach of the boy's soccer club.


#6. Ookouchi Akira (大河内 アキラ)

Birthday: May 26, 1988
Blood Type: AB
Like: Helping others, Small animals
Dislikes: Fighting, being picked on
Clubs: Swimming Club

Note: A very athletic and shy swimmer in the swimming club. She is a friend of Makie Sasaki, Ako Izumi & Yuuna Akashi who are also in the school sports clubs. She resembles Motoko Aoyama of Love Hina.


#7. Kakizaki Misa (柿崎 美砂)

Birthday: May 15, 1988
Bloodtype: O
Likes: Balloons, Shopping
Dislikes: Cabonated Drinks (eg. soda)
Clubs: Mahora Cheerleading, Chorus Club

Note: One of the three & the leader of the cheerleaders in the class. She is a friend of Madoka and Sakurako. The only student who is confirmed to have a boyfriend. Seems to be good at dressmaking.


#8. Kagurazaka Asuna (神楽坂 明日菜)

Age: 14
Birthday: April 21st, 1988 (She's 2 days older than me!) Blood Type: B
Nickname: Baka-Ranger Red
Likes/Crush: Takahata-sensei (quite possibly Negi-sensei too)
Dislikes: Ki, Childish Things, Studying
Club: Fine Arts Club
Special Technique: Long Jump Kick

(Lots of) Notes: The irascible dunce and leading female character, and bearing many similarities to Naru Narusegawa. She is also often in conflict with people. Asuna has a crush on her former English teacher, Mr. Takahata, whom Negi replaces. Asuna is in fact an orphan, who was allowed into the school for free by the school dean, yet Asuna still tries to pay for her schooling via a paper route. Much to her chagrin, she is a member of the "Baka Rangers", the nickname for the five lowest scorers in Negi's class. She is the "Red Ranger". She has Heterochromia iridis and as such, her eyes are blue and green. This is considerably more noticeable in the anime, as while in the anime the two eyes are of quite different colors, they are quite similar to each other in the manga version. Asuna is the first to find out about Negi's secret when she saw him saving Nodoka from falling down the stairs. Negi and Asuna had a very shaky relationship from the start but later improved, with Negi being like a little brother to her and Asuna being like a big sister/guardian to him; their relationship seems to, very occasionally, show hints at eventually developing into a less platonic one. Asuna is the first person that Negi made a probationary contract with. Her artifact was supposed to be a giant sword, but turned out to be a giant fan instead; she nevertheless wields it with gusto and effectiveness. However, the sword first appear when Asuna was worried and tried to save Negi from the sharks in chapter 61, which means that emotions play a role to her summoning the sword. She has immunity to most magic against her such as love potions or petrification spells. Asuna may have met the Thousand Master as a child before which may explain her strong magic immunity.


#9. Misora Kasuga (春日 美空)

Birthday: April 4, 1988 (Year of the Dragon and an Aries)
Bloodtype: A type
Likes: 100m Dash, Mischief
Dislikes: Talking to her father, being silent
Clubs: Track & Field Team

A tomboy in the track & field club. She sometimes wears a nun's habit.


#10. Karakuri Chachamaru (絡繰 茶々丸)

Activated on April 1, 2001
Likes: Spring rolls, Tea
Clubs: Tea Ceremony Club, Go Club


1. First Spring-Powered Model w/external power was completed by the Mahora University Department of Engineering on January 3, 2001. Officially activated on April 1, 2001 with internal power. Special Technique: Rokettodecopin

2. A robot (created by Hakase and powered by Evangeline), though only a select few actually seem to have noticed (even though her metal robotic parts stick out very clearly, such as her rabbit-ear-like antennas and mechanical head screw). To date, only Evangeline, Chamo, Chisame, Chao and Satomi have been able to identify her without having it pointed out to them. She also stands out as being about the only friend Evangeline A. K. McDowell has in the class. In fact, the two are so close that Chachamaru takes care of Evangeline whenever she gets sick. This is not simple friendship, as she has been designed by Eva as a specific magic partner. Chachamaru behaves cold and emotionless most of the time (as she is an android), though she spends most of her free time, of her own will, taking care of people and animals (she is looking after a pack of stray cats). She is also in the Go and tea ceremony clubs, but only because Eva is in those clubs too.


#11. Kugimiya Madoka (釘宮 円)

Born: March 3, 1989
Bloodtype: AB
Nickname: Kugimi
Likes: The Gyuudon at Matsuya, Silver Accesorys, Western Music
Dislikes: Her Husky Voice
Clubs: Mahora Cheerleading

Note: The serious one of the three cheerleaders in the class. She is one making sure that the other cheerleaders (especially Sakurako) don't get into any trouble. She likes Gyuudon Noodles, Silver accessories and is a fan of Avril Lavigne but hates playboys, and is mildly obsessed with her husky voice. She does resemble Motoko Aoyama of Love Hina with short hair.


#12. Ku Fei (古 菲)

Ku Fei Student #12
Age: 14
Birthday: March 16th, 1989
Blood Type: A
Nickname: Baka-Ranger Yellow
Likes: Training, Strong Men, Nikuman (Meatbuns)
Dislikes: Chao and the Professors new inventions
Favorite food: Meat
Clubs: Chinese Martial Arts Society

Note: The energetic and joyful kung-fu fighting Chinese girl. She is much like Love Hina's Kaolla Suu (though less childish). She's a member of the "Baka Rangers", of which she is the "Yellow Ranger". She says that she can't concentrate much on her studies as she "takes most of her time" to study Japanese language. She hates being used as test subjects for Chao's and Satomi's inventions. She is also one of the few girls in the class to know of Negi's secret when she, Mana and Kaede helped Negi, Asuna and Setsuna rescued Konoka at Kyoto.


#13. Konoe Konoka (近衛 木乃香)

Age: 14
Birthday: March 18th, 1989
Born in: Kyoto
Blood Type: AB
Relation: Grand-daughter of the Principal of Mahora School
Responsibilities: Secretary
Likes: Fortune Telling, Tarot Cards, Cooking
Dislikes: Nothing in Particular
Clubs: Fortune-telling Society, Library Exploration Club

Notes: A gentle and caring girl who lives with Asuna and Negi. If anything, she's the mediator within Asuna's and Konoka's dorm room, being both Asuna's best friend and Negi's biggest supporter. She is also the school dean granddaughter. A fan of fortune telling, she has much magical potential, having come from a family of powerful mages. Her father is the chief of the Kansai Magic Association, who married her mother, the school dean's daughter, in an arranged marriage in order to ease tension between the Kansai and Kantou (where Mahora Acedemy is located and the dean lives) Magic Associations. (This is because Kantou mages use western type magic from Europe, and this angered Kansai mages who use eastern type magic from East Asia, because they see Kantou mages forgetting traditions and being more western). She is the fourth person that Negi made a probationary contract with and has the magical ability to heal wounds. She has strong affection for Setsuna, and this often makes their friendship seem more akin to a romantic relationship (it sometimes seems that the friendship, indeed, has that potential). Known to many fans, Konoka resembles the look of Tomoyo Daidouji from Cardcaptor Sakura.


#14. Saotome Haruna (早乙女 ハルナ)

Age: 14
Birthday: August 18th, 1988
Likes: Tea Parties, Pandemonium/Choas
Dislikes: Reptiles. Deadlines
Clubs: Manga Club, Library Exploration Club


1. She is sensitive to the romantic love of others and can smell it faintly. Her pen name is "Paru" or Pal. She is strong in pandemonium makes the deadline of the manga (she makes??) made every month.

2. The local rumor-monger and a frequent companion of Yue Ayase and Nodoka Miyazaki. If there's a rumor going around in the class, she's almost always at the root of it all. Also, as a member of the Library Exploration Club, she seems to have made it her mission to get Nodoka together with Negi - whether Nodoka wants her help or not.


#15. Sakurazaki Setsuna (桜咲 刹那)

Birthday: January 17, 1989
Bloodtype: A
Likes: Training in the sword, Konoka
Dislikes: Chatting
Clubs: Kendo Club
Fighting Style: Kyoto Shinmeiryuu School (Motoko Style like in Love Hina)

Note: A kendo expert trained in the Kyoto Shinmei (God's Cry) Style. Originally from Kyoto, she is a childhood friend of Konoka and often acts as her protector. At times, her devotion to Konoka and Konoka's open affection towards her is suggestive of a more romantic relationship (and the friendship, indeed, seems to have that potential). However, she rarely communicates with Konoka, as she believes that she should be her "protector from the shadows" so to speak. But the truth is she is has angel wings since she is half human, half bird, fearing that Konoka and everyone else would hate her. But Negi, Asuna and Konoka, who were the first to find out, still became her friends even after finding out who she was. The only people who know about her secret is Asuna, Konoka, Eva, Chachamaru and Negi who all agreed to keep it a secret. After the Kyoto incident, she has become more open, even being with Konoka. Occasionally goes on exorcisms with Mana Tatsumiya. She is the third person that Negi made a probationary contract with. Interesting note: the kendo style that Setsuna use is the same style used by Motoko Aoyama of Love Hina. This has led fans to believe their might be a possible cross over between the series since both are created by the same author, Ken Akamatsu. And she was the first girl to beat Makie Sasaki of her number 1 postion in the readership polls.


#16. Sasaki Makie (佐々木 まき絵)

Age: 14
Birthday: March 7th, 1989
Blood Type: O
Clubs: Gymnastics Club

Notes: The delicate and feminine rhythmic gymnast. She has a strong liking to Negi and is friends with Yuuna Akashi, Ako Izumi & Akira Ookouchi who are also in sports clubs. She's a member of the "Baka Rangers", the nickname for the five lowest scorers in Negi's class, standing out as the second lowest scorer (only Asuna does worse than her). She is the "Pink Ranger". In several readership polls, she has been consistently been voted number 1 in reader polls & being the most popular girl in Class 3-A.


#17. Shiina Sakurako (椎名 桜子)

Likes: Karaoke, Her Cats (Cookie and Biscuit)
Dislikes: Black
Clubs: Lacrosse Club, Mahora Cheerleading

Dislikes: Slimy Things
Clubs: Biathlon Club (Extracurricular)

Notes: The mercenary miko. She works part time at a shrine within the academy as a priestess & employs guns with spellbreaker bullets as her tool of exorcism. She is also one of the few girls in the class to know of Negi's secret, when she, Fei Ku, & Kaede help Negi, Asuna & Setsuna rescue Konoka at Kyoto. She is also in the Biathlon club as her crush, the Biathlon captain is in the club. Mana is 1 of the 5 girls in the class who have big breasts & the 2nd largest breasts in class.


#19. Chao Ringshen (超 鈴音)

Notes: The top student of the entire year group. A rich Chinese girl, she is in a lot of clubs and is particularly into cooking. She is best friends with Satomi Hakase & both enjoy using Satomi's inventions on Ku Fei. Her origins are mysterious and she may be related to Negi in some way.

Age: 14
Birthday: November 12th, 1988
Blood Type: O
Likes: Pudding, Relaxing
Dislikes Frogs
Clubs: Walking Club

Notes: The gentle and calm yet strong and tall girl. She resembles Mitsune Konno from Love Hina.

She is a member of the "Baka Rangers", the nickname for the five lowest scorers in Negi's class. She is the "Blue Ranger". Kaede is one of the rare girls who know Negi's secret (though he doesn't know at first, as she noticed it secretly) & helped Negi, Asuna & Setsuna rescue Konoka at Kyoto with Mana & Ku Fei. Kaede is 1 of the 5 girls in the class who have big breasts & has the 3rd largest breasts in class.

Likes: Relaxing, Helping others, Being with people
Dislikes: Loneliness, Long Distance Relationships (#1 breast size in the class)
Clubs: Astronomy Club

Notes: Is a gentle and loving, yet strange, girl. She resemble Mutsumi Otohime from Love Hina & even acts like her.

She is also roommates with Ayaka Yukihiro & Natsumi Murakami. Chizuru is 1 of the 5 girls in the class who have big breasts & has the largest breasts in the class.


#22. Narutaki Fuuka (鳴滝 風香)

Age: 14
Birthday: December 6th, 1988
Blood Type: A
Relation: Older Sister of Fumika
Likes: Pranks, Sweet Foods
Dislikes: Ghosts, Inanimate objects
Clubs: Walking Club

Notes: The elder of the Narutaki twins. She's the class prankster, and always seems to be looking for some way to get into trouble. More often than not, she winds up getting Fumika to help her out as well. Together with her sister & Sakurako the 3 look like hyperactive kids.


#23. Narutaki Fumika (鳴滝 史伽)

Age: 14
Birthday: December 6th, 1988
Blood Type: A
Responsibilities: Beautification Officer
Relation: Younger Sister of Fuuka
Likes: Cleaning, Sweet Foods
Dislikes: Hairy and Long Things (eg. caterpillers)
Clubs: Walking Club

Notes: The younger of the Narutaki twins. Truth be told, she's almost the complete opposite of Fuuka. Her hobby is cleaning, and more often than not winds up going along with Fuuka's pranks, trying to tell her sister that it's a bad idea the entire way. Together with her sister & Sakurako the 3 look like hyperactive kid.


#24. Hakase Satomi (葉加瀬 聡美)

Clubs: Robotics Society (Mahora University), Jet Propulsion Society (Mahora University)

Notes: The robotics expert. She is best friends with Chao Lingshen, and created Chachamaru with her help. She & Chao enjoy using her inventions on Ku Fei.


#25. Hasegawa Chisame (長谷川 千雨) (a.k.a. Chiu) (ちう)

Age: 14
Birthday: February 2nd, 1989
Blood Type: B
Clubs: "Going Home" Club
Skills: Great with Computers

Notes: The grumpy computer geek, with a double life. She is serious in public, however in private she dresses via cosplay fashion and takes glamorous and sexy pictures of herself by the name of Chiu and posts them on her website. In the manga, she is the most popular of the internet idols. She particularly dislikes Chachamaru Rakuso, Mana Tatsumiya, the Narutaki twins, Ku Fei, Lingshen Chao, Evangeline, Kaede Nagase, Zazie Rainyday and Negi, considering them to be crazy (as they are quite eccentric-looking). Actually, she is afraid of being crazy herself because of her hobby, but denies it herself. She does look like Love Hina's Naru Narusegawa with her glasses on. The only person who knows about her double life is Negi and Kazumi Asakura. Unfortunely, not only did he found out about her secret, he even accidently embarrasses her to the entire class no thanks to his magic (he sneeze at her which blow all of her clothes off in chapter 12) & she vows one day to get her revenge for what he did. Kazumi is shown holding a cosplay picture of Chisame as Chiu in episode 16 as blackmail.



#26. Evangeline Athanasia Katherine McDowell (エヴァンジェリン) (a.k.a. Eva-chan)

Likes: Tea, Japanese Scenery, Go
Dislikes: Garlic, Class
Clubs: Go Club, Tea Ceremony Club

Huge Notes: (Listed as Evangeline A.K. McDowell), the only Western/Caucasian girl in the class. A cold and devilish small girl, she is actually a criminal witch/vampire nicknamed the "Dark Evangel" and a thousand other names... or so she would have a person believe. She may look like about 10 but she's really over a hundred years old! She rarely ever says much in class, but what she does say tends to lean towards an attempt to seem as evil as possible. However, she DOES have a soft side, which she rarely shows. The only people who can truly say much about Evangeline would be Chachamaru & Chachazero. She enjoy playing Go & is in the Go & Tea Ceremony club. As an interesting note, Mr. Takahata wrote "Ask her advice if you're in trouble" on Negi's class roster. (See Note on Evangeline in Translation Notes) Eva ostensibly hates Negi, although it is due to the fact that his father rejected (indirectly) her love & 15 years ago, he put a powerful curse that seal her magic powers & prevented her from leaving Mahora Academy as punishment for being evil. However she was able to leave the academy once when she & Chachamaru help Negi, Asuna & Setsuna rescue Konoka at Kyoto thanks to the dean who was able to find way to trick the powers that prevented Eva from leaving the academy. Another way for her to leave, is if the entire electricity power at Mahora Academy is shutdown since this power is powering the curse that's been sealing her magic & preventing her to leave. The only way for her to end the curse is if somebody who is powerful like (Negi father) to lift the curse or she has to completely drink Negi's blood (which contain very powerful magic which was passed down from his father) in order to be free from the curse. Given that the identity of Negi's mother is unknown, and given Eva's past with Negi's father, there is a possibility (but a very, very remote one) that Eva might be Negi's mother but it is unlikely since Eva was cursed 15 years ago & Negi was born 10 years ago.


#27. Miyazaki Nodoka (宮崎 のどか)

Age: 14
Birthday: May 10th, 1988
Blood Type: O
Responsibilities: Library Officer
Likes: Books
Dislikes: Boys/Men
Clubs: Reader's Club, Library Exploration Club

Notes: The shy book maniac. A member of the Library Exploration Group, and helps in the book store, she spends so much time in the library that people outside the Library Exploration Group refer to her as "Bookshelf girl", "Library Girl", "Book Store girl", etc. (the Del Rey translation often gives it as "Librarian-chan"). When Negi first arrived, she always had hair falling in front of her eyes, though her current hairstyle usually leaves enough of an opening in her hair that one (and only one) eye & later both eyes can be seen, created by wearing a short ponytail. After Negi catches her after she falls down some stairs, she develops a liking to Negi, which seems to be reciprocated & rather interesting since she dislikes boys. Interesting note, she is very much like Love Hina's Shinobu Maehara, by the same author, Ken Akamatsu. Nodoka is the second student Negi make a probationary contract with. Her magical artifact is a "Diary" that shows the thoughts of any person she speaks the name of, and has saved Negi and company on more than one occasion.


#28. Murakami Natsumi (村上 夏美)

Likes: Theater, The anticipation of going on stage
Dislikes: Herself, Red hair, Curly Hair, Ad Lib
Clubs: Theater Club

Notes: Is a sweet yet shy girl who is an actress in the theatrical club. She loves acting but one thing she hates is herself & how she looks because her body is not mature. This is made more worse since she is roommates with Ayaka & Chizuru who both have mature bodies & bigger breasts.


#29. Yukihiro Ayaka (雪広 あやか) (a.k.a. Class President; Iincho)

Age: 14
Birthday: July 5th, 1988
Blood Type: O
Responsibilites: Room "A" Head Student Officer (Class President)
Side Note: Ranked 4th in class
Likes: Flowers, Innocent and Pure Boys
Dislikes: Rebels, Violent People
Clubs: Equestrian Club, Floral Club

Notes: The rich and snooty class representative. More often than not, she winds up being the only thing keeping the class in order, due to Negi's inexperience with handling large groups, which winds up with betting rings opening up whenever she's distracted, more often than not because she's fighting with Asuna (which in turn winds up being what the betting is on). She and Asuna seem to hate each other, with the two often getting into fights, but it eventually comes clear that they merely have a very weird friendship that neither is willing to admit to. She is madly in love with Negi, though she stands by the position that she's only interested in Negi because he "needs a mother figure". She tends to be aggressive in pretty much everything she does, which tends to wind up with her being misunderstood. However, she's very good at hiding her own past (such as her younger brother who died at childbirth, which may explain her fixation on Negi). She also roommates with Chizuru Naba & Natsumi Murakami & is in the equestrian & floral club. Ayaka is 1 of the 5 girls in the class who have big breasts & has the 5th largest breasts in class.


#30. Yotsuba Satsuki (四葉 五月)

Responsibilities: School Lunch Officer
Clubs: Cooking Club

Notes: Is the only girl in class who is overweight. She enjoys cooking and is in the cooking club. She also runs a nikuman business with Lingshen, and is the school dining officer. Despite her overweightness, she is still rather cute.


#31. Zazie Rainyday (ザジ レニーデイ)

Clubs: Magic Club

Notes: Is a very mysterious student. Nothing much is known about her, as she rarely talks. What is known is that she is in the school's magic club, thanks to Takamichi's notes. She has dark skin, and has two particular face paint marks: a large teardrop under her left eye, and a vertical line crossing the right side of her face. She is always seen with her pet bird.



Negi Springfield (ネギ・スプリングフィールド)

English Instructor/Wizard-in-Training
Age: 10
Nationality: Welsh
Likes: His Older Sister, Herbal Tea, Antiques
Dislikes: Baths, Sleeping Alone

Note: Teacher of Class 3-A (formerly 2-A) of Mahora Academy Middle School.


Takamichi T. Takahata (高畑 T. タカミチ)

Takahata-sensei is the teacher Negi is replacing in the school. This is not to say that he is not in the school, however - he has appeared several times throughout, though he has become the new art teacher for the time being. It should be noted that Takahata-sensei is close friends with Negi, and fought in the magic war, alongside Eishun Konoe and the Thousand Master. He is very much like Love Hina's Noriyasu Seta (who is also a calm teacher on whom the leading girl character is in love with).


Shizuna Minamoto (源 しずな)

Occupation: Guidance Councelor/Nurse

Age: 28
Birthday: June 28th, 1974
Blood Type: AB
Likes: Sieved Soba Noodles, Driving, Sake
Dislikes: Cigarette Smoke

Notes: English Dept, 99cm Bust. Negi's advisor at the school. She primarily attempts to be a motherly figure whilst Negi adjusts to the school, slowly leading him into the different aspects of his job. In the anime, she is aware of magic. In the manga, however, it is currently unknown.


Konoemon Konoe (近衛 近右衛門)

Occupation: Headmaster (Principal)

Konoka's grand-father, which likely played a role in his decision for Negi to live with her and Asuna. What has been indicated is that he's a kind-hearted man, but extremely strict and is the chief of the Kantou Magic Association. The Dean's hobby is arranging marriage interviews for Konoka to choose a future fiance. One arranged marriage thanks to him is his daughter's marriage to the chief of Kansai Magic Association (Eishun Konoe) which has resulted in Konoka's birth and easing tension between the Kansai and Kantou Magic Association. Unfortunately, there were still a few mages in Kansai who dislike Kantou even after the marriage, so the dean sent Negi on secret task to give the chief of Kansai a letter containing a peace offering when the school was on fieldtrip to Kyoto. (Actually the letter was a complaint by the dean, telling his son-in-law to try to control his henchmen who dislike Kantou Mages). When the Kansai Magic Association Headquarters was attacked, his granddaughter kidnapped by Chigusa Amagasaki and her henchmen, the dean helped Negi and the others by sending Eva and Chachamaru. He helped Eva leave the academy by distracting the powers that prevented Eva from leaving by stamping a document on where she was going, however this only last for 5 seconds, which resulted the dean stamping a new document every 5 seconds! As a result, he ended with bad back ache and a sore hand but he was glad he was able to help Negi save his granddaughter.

Kyoto Arc Characters


Eishun Konoe

Konoka's father and the chief of the Kansai Magic Association. Before Konoka's birth, the Kansai and Kantou Magic Association had a feud because Kansai mages did not approve of Kantou mages becoming western and using western style magic instead of eastern style magic, because they dislike western mages and see Kantou's actions were abadoning their tradition. In order, to ease the two sides, The school dean of Mahora who is also the chief of the Kantou Magic Association made an arranged marriage between Eishun and his daughter. The hostility ended but there were still few in Kansai who still dislike Kantou and/or western mages.(e.g. Chigusa Amagasaki). Despite Kansai mages attitude towards the west, Eishun became best friends with a powerful western mage, the Thousand master, Negi's father. Nagi, Eishun, Takamichi, 'Sanders' and 2 others who were Nagi's comrade-in-arms, fought in a magic war that involved both mages from the east and west 20 years ago. He has battle scars on his body from that war. Even after his so called death in 1993, he still kept Nagi's holiday house clean. When Konoka was born, Eishun never told her that she was a mage because he wanted his daughter to have a normal life. However, because she is also from the Konoe bloodline, she inherited incredible magic power which makes her a target for anyone who wanted to use her powers. So Eishun sent her to study at Mahora Academy with Setsuna as her bodyguard, so his father-in-law could protect her from the danger of mages trying to kidnap her, especially those from Kansai. Eishun is a kindly man with a moderate demeanor, and he resembles a gentler and younger version of Gendo Ikari from Evangelion.


Chigusa Amagasaki

A ying-yang charm user from the Kansai Magic Association. She was the one reponsible for causing trouble at beginning of the school field trip. She try to prevent Negi from giving his letter to the chief of Kansai Magic Association because she does not want relations between the Kansai and Kantou Magic Association to improve and she was the one who was trying to kidnap Konoka due to the powerful magic power she has. She bears a grudge against western mages because her parents were killed in the magic war that Nagi, Eishun and other mages from east and west that were involved in that war 20 years ago. She plans to have her revenge against the western mages by summoning the demon god "Ryoumen Sukunanokami" and the only way to do that was to use Konoka's powers. Despite having the ability to summon warrior spirits and creating Shikigami she needed help, so she also enlisted the help of 3 mercenary children to help her in her plan. She was successful summoning the demon god using Konoka powers but Evangeline who was more powerful defeated the demon. Her plan failed, she tried to escape but was captured by Chacha Zero and is under custody of the Kansai Magic Association.

* She is named after one of Ken Akamatsu's assitants of the same name.



The Shinmeiryuu swordsgirl is 1 of the 3 mercenary children helping Chigusa. Unlike Setsuna who only use a 1-sword style, she uses a sword and dagger style. And she also knows how use charms like invisibility and summoning creatures (mostly dolls). She has a crush on Setsuna since she is a senior at the Shinmeiryuu, admires her bravery and loves to duel with her and even calling her Senpai. She loves to cosplay as seen from the costumes she wears, and is often seen dressing in Gothic Lolita fashion. She had a final duel with Setsuna, when Setsuna and Asuna fought against the demons summon by Chigusa but was stopped when Asuna and Setsuna went to help Negi fight against Fate and the Demon God, and when Mana and Fei Ku joined the battle against the demons. After the demon god was defeated, she returns to the Shinmeiryuu with the only shame she couldn't finish her duel with her beloved Setsuna-Senpai.


Fate Averruncus

1 of the 3 mercenary children helping Chigusa. He came to Japan from the Istanbul Magic Association a month before the school field trip to train but was really there to help Chigusa. Fate is an expert in both Western and Eastern Magic, and is stronger and more skilled than Negi. He helped Chigusa not because she hired him but for his own reasons. He was the one that turned almost everyone at the Kansai Magic Association headquarters to stone and kidnapped Konoka when Chigusa failed to kidnap her on earlier attempts. When Negi, Asuna and Setsuna try to rescue Konoka, they had a hard time defeating Fate for he is a very good fighter and mage but succeed thanks to Negi's surprise attacks and help from Eva. The name he has may not be his real name and according to Eva, he is not human but a construct. He disappeared after the demon god was defeated. He sometimes overdoes his magic.


Kotarou Inugami

1 of the 3 mercenary children helping Chigusa. He is wolf-man, which can be tell by the wolf-like ears and tail he has and uses the power of the dog gods to summon dogs. He is a powerful fighter and an expert in Ninjutsu and charms. He prefers to fight hand to hand rather than using magic. He disrespected Negi by calling him a weakling, because he had seen Western mages who let their partners fight for them, and came to regard them as weaklings. He takes back what he said to Negi, when Negi defeats him using both magic and hand-to-hand combat. He later turns into his beast form, a stronger version of himself to defeat Negi, but he was defeated easily thanks to the help of Nodoka and her magic diary. He and Negi had a final match when Negi was trying to rescue Konoka, but was it cut short when Kaede intervened and was defeated by her, who was more skilled. Despite being a hot headed person, he is a feminist and would never hit women unless they are powerful fighters. He was currently under custody of the Kansai Magic Association but later escape, trying to warn Negi of an impeding danger. He is currently living with Chizuru and Natsumi.




The only other student who graduated with Negi that has been named. She and Negi have been childhood friends for as long as they can remember, and it has been indicated that Anya helped Negi pack for his trip to Japan. She is currently working as a fortune teller in London, so it is unlikely that she will make any major appearances other than in flashbacks. Anya seems like a grumpy girl (often shown frowning), although that could be from the typical reaction of young people towards those they like.


Nekane Springfield

Negi's older sister. Her gentle personality is largely based on interpretations through disjointed flashbacks, so it is hard to identify precisely what she is like. What has been indicated however is that Negi's sister took on more of a motherly role in his life. As a side note, Asuna and Negi's sister feel similar for Negi. Nekane may not be the daughter of Nagi Springfield because when he was officially announced dead, he was 25, which doesn't make sense since she was still a teenager during and after his death, she may be Nagi sister or a relative of his, but if she is Nagi daughter, the only clear explanation is that Nagi married at an early age or she is his adopted daughter. 6 years ago, when demons attack the village where she and Negi use to lived, she was almost turned to stone trying to protect Negi from a petrification spell but was saved by The Thousand Master. (It is unknown if she knows she was saved by him.)


Albert Chamomile (アルベール カモミール) (Chamo/Kamo-kun)

A perverted lingerie-stealing (typical manga male stock character!) chain-smoking talking ermine that Negi helped out when he was five. Since then, Chamo has been going to Negi whenever he ran into trouble. He was originally thought to have been sent to Negi by his elder sister to help Negi out, though we later find out Negi was the only person he could rely on when Chamo escaped from the law for stealing girls underwear (over 2000!) because the law could not arrest him if he were a pet of a wizard. He lied to Negi saying he stole them to keep his sick sister warm, which Negi believed, whereupon Negi made Chamo his pet/familiar. As a side note, being turned into an ermine is one of the punishments that Negi's magic academy gives, which makes one wonder about whether Chamo was once a mage as well. He cares strongly for Negi and will fight to protect him, but he's not above using him to try to make a fast buck.


Nagi Springfield (The Thousand Master, often mistranslated as the Southern Master in early Del Ray editions vols. 1-5) (ナギ・スプリングフィールド/サウザンド マスター)
A legendary wizard who supposedly wields a thousand spells, hence the name, and he is Negi's (and maybe Nekane's) father. It's also possible that his title may have come about because he was able to make spells a thousand times stronger (i.e. Evageline's curse), and there is also a rumour that he made probationary contracts with a thousand different girls. He was so strong that he didn't even need any partners to help him. He was a magic swordsman, using both magic and hand-to-hand combat. Nagi and his friends (Eishun, Takamichi, 'Sanders', Gatou and one other) fought in a magic war 20 years ago when he was 15. After the war, he became famous for his heroic deeds and got the name The Thousand Master. He disappeared ten years ago in 1993, the same year Negi was born. No one knows precisely what happened to him, but most people assume he's dead. According to some flashbacks, Nagi was a nice and playful man but sometimes the things he did were troublesome especially the village he lived.. Negi when he was younger didn't believe the stories that his father was dead, so got himself in trouble, hoping his dad might come and rescue him. He did. Six years ago, when demons attacked the village where Negi and his sister live, he rescued his children and defeated the demons. He gave Negi his staff, after he defeated the demons and the last thing he said to his son was, "I'm really am sorry, I can't do anything for you. It's not like I have any right to say this, but grow up well and happy!" Negi is becoming a Magister Magi so, one day he could meet his father again. Nagi also met Asuna when she was a child.


Chachazero (チャチャゼロ)

A magical doll that was once Evangeline's partner before Eva was put under a curse by Nagi. Unlike Chachamaru (Eva's current partner) who is powered by a spring, Zero is powered by magic which mainly comes from Eva. As a result of the curse, she can not move but talk only, which is the reason why Eva relies on Chachamaru. While Chachamaru is polite and kind, Zero is rude and a whiner. She is always complaining that she can't move and her master has become too soft and not so evil lately because Zero enjoy killing and seeing things get killed. When she fights, she uses 2 daggers and sometimes a giant sword larger than her. She is sometimes seen riding on Chachamaru's head.
