Mahou Sensei Negima! is a manga by Akamatsu Ken which has had an anime and live action adaptation of the same name.
There is also another manga called Negima!? Neo by Fujima Takuya which was made into an anime titled Negima!?. Wikipedia says that Fujima is the author and Akamatsu merely provided guidance. MAL, however, credits Akamatsu as a story author (along with Fujima).
Is there any official statement on Akamatsu's role in Negima!? Neo?
I mostly want to know if he played a major role in its creation or just basically made sure Fujima didn't completely ruin his series and/or its' reputation.
