My post primarily answers the titled question such that the answer works for people that have read and have not read Mahou Sensei Negima (MSN). Part 1 (For people who have read MSN. If you have not read MSN, skip to part 2) Remember Eva from MSN? She is the same person as Yukihime-sensei. Over the years, Eva figured out a way to change her appearance so ...

Negima! is a direct adaptation of the original manga. It covers most of the major stories from the manga up through Volume 6, then does an original story for its last few episodes. The stories are done out of order, though; the Library Island arc from Volume 2 is done after the Evangeline arc from Volume 3, and the filler stories are scattered all over the ...

Ku Fei and Yue are not known to be alive during the time of UQ Holder. What you are referring to is a flashback scene regarding a tournament that the main characters are now training for. It shows that Yue and Ku Fei competed as a duo in a previous running of the tournament, some time after Negima but, by their appearances, long before UQ Holder. ...

There is no significance Asuna Vesperina Theotanasia Entheofushia, a.ka. Asuna Kagurazaka, has one green eye, and one blue eye, as depicted in every canon appearance except in Negima!? There is no real known significance as to why she has heterochromia, though it may have something to do with the fact she is of royal descent. She is seen as having ...

I would assume the basis mangaka's use for witch incantations and the like would come from Mantras. sometimes they are called Arias or incantations but the basic principle is that the words that make them up hold value either to the actual spell or to the user. In Soul Eater the witches use Arias which flow from their themes. For Blair, even though she's "a ...

There is another more more more obvious link: Chapter 1 pg 19: Touta Konoe, the main hero, is the grand-son of Negi Springfield, somehow related to Konoka Konoe (his surname is Konoe).

The good thing about UQ Holder is that even if you didn't read MSN, you will still understand the story. Yes there are some MSN references which UQ Holder dialogues explain thoroughly especially Negi's "Thunder in Heaven, Great Vigor" was explained in the latter chapters. As for the other characters, some are not yet dead since not all of them are human ...

I'd say that the info on MAL's page would be the accurate one. You can see in Amazon's page for the first volume of Negima!? Neo, that both the information on the authors (right under the title) and the cover state that the story is by Akamatsu Ken and that Fujima Takuya is the illustrator. Also, Amazon.co.jp's page on Negima!?Neo too states Akamatsu ...

The instruments are called Maracas which are similar to shaker. Similar to how some singers use tambourines, other use maracas when they are singing often dancing while playing in rhythm to the shake. You can often see backing vocalists use such instruments to appear busy when they are not required. Here's how to dance with Maracas.

Yes, in the real-world, there was a law set to be passed that would, in principle, give editors and the magazine substantially more control over the individual manga. In the end not much came of it, but Akamatsu took it pretty seriously at the time and suddenly ended the manga in three chapters, seemingly in part to avoid and protest the perceived legal ...

Okay from what I understand so far about the whole Magia Erebea is that it can be a way to become immortal. Now within the manga, UQ Holder, we find out that there are varying degrees of immortality and what is suggested that they are not "Complete" because they still need to eat, they can become injured and, to some degree, die. Spoilers Negi, on the ...

Most likely, it's purposely because the entire academy was run by mages, and they would know about most if not all of these cases. There also is the fact that a 10 year old genius mage was given that class specifically. It will, though, remain in the realm of speculation as no such thing has been mentioned in the manga series.
