Hi folks, thought I'd update and talk about this then since I do the manga reviews, but that I'd post this separately. The latest chapter 210 (you can see my review in the manga discussion BTW) ended with the class polls which have been done before. If you want to note how this has changed from previous polls or simply to chime in on them, go right on ahead. NOTE: This poll was done in Japan, and it ONLY COVERED the class students, not other characters.

Source help: the manga page: http://www.onemanga.com/Mahou_Sensei_Negima%21/210/15/
From the site of one of the scan groups for Negima, Aquastar, off their forums for the translation of the poll results:

Poll results
(NOTE:the first number next to the name is the rank, the other number I believe is the total amount of fan votes each one got)
(RECENTLY ADDED: OK just relooked over that manga page link I gave above and I can at least give you the movement of each character from the 6th poll to the 7th current one, so note I'm adding next to names the rank they had last poll and how much they moved. I do this cause I got a lot of love to give and it's fun. lol My comments are still based on the comparison between 5th and 7th polls though I'll add a few extra paragraphs at the end. ALSO I read up and it looks like the poll was open to those in Japan getting the manga during January only of this year, so that was roughly right after Yuuna had her focus chapter following her dad, explaining possibly why she did so well, and for example why Chisame dropped as she had yet to decide to follow the team to the Magic World for example, and why some have yet to get the full effects of the current arc.)

31 00064 Hakase (28th, down 3)

NOW I did my best being a bit tired now to find the last poll results, but I could at best only find the 5th poll from 2006/chapter 129. At least you can also use it as a gage to see how characters moved ranks still:

OK now for my part, some of my own notes and comments:

-As you can see at the top to reflect a bit of the character building from the 5th to the 7th recent poll, Setsuna jumped over Asuna for the #1 spot previously challenged in past polls (if I recall right) by the likes of Nodoka, Eva and Makie even (remember in the first polls how high she ranked. Well being a huge fan of Setsuna I like how she's #1 this time with her mix of great battles and some character build (but to be fair, the most recent chapters don't really feature her as much).

-Asuna and Eva tend to hang in those top 3 slots too with Setsuna of late. Note though how Ako dropped from the 4th rank to allow Konoka and Nodoka to pass her. Again looking at these next 5 the manga chapters have focused on them a lot of late (OK again one can argue Ako and Asuna only got featured recently for example) but these slots seem to be held by them for now.

-Past them you'll note how the more recent focus in a year plays a huge role on fan's interest. In the 5th poll the focus was still on the Mahora Festival (just before Chao's plan took shape if you go check chapter 129) so you can understand why characters like Kazumi, Sayo and Chachamaru dropped a bit (but again think about it, in the early days of the manga, those 3 were no where near the top half of the fans' favorites aside from Chachamaru). The big jumps to the top 10 certainly now are Yuuna (who got more focus here and there for her possibly dormant powers and her dad's involvement), Akira (just for being the character used as the voice of reason of late in the Magic World), Yue and Chisame (which I've come to like much more now than in the past with their HEAVY amount of character development).

-Makie must have the kawaii gene going as she confuses me the most being still at the #12 slot, and in the 11 slot on the 5th poll. Maybe that's just me. Kaede dropped and she is featured more than Makie is for example. Others that dropped in the last bit despite being on Negi's main Magic World Squad (maybe I guess hurt by the whole separation story in fan's eyes) are Ku Fei, and Haruna.

-Then you get a lot of characters that float in the middle of the poll due to being not that well represented but still well liked by fans and having some screen time like Ayaka, Madoka (I'm not sure why she's ranked higher than the other 2 cheerleaders aside from her brief character development during the Mahora Festival when helping Ako, but she has less relevance in this since Akira took over this role currently), Chizuru, and Sakurako.

-Sorry then to fans of those in the bottom 10 of the list currently, as they haven't moved much from even since the 5th poll. Someone explain to me though how Zazie is at the top of the bottom 10 ranks with her brief appearances? Natsumi might get a bump up next time due to the developing relationship with Kotaro I'd imagine. Mana's another one I just got a feeling will go up if she is brought in more to help with the whole Magic World Crisis as we saw briefly when she entered the world with Takamichi and Donnet.

-OK again I wish I had the 6th poll results (feel free to add those to this thread BTW anyone) because I imagine Chao might have enjoyed some success at the top during that time due to being the main antagonist for a while. She's understandably back at the bottom for not being present for now. Misora's another character that might have got a better boost up the rankings once her character developed during the fight with Chao. She again might go up with her recent appearance in Chapter 210 with the other magical sisters. No surprise the twins fill the bottoms in Fuma and Fumika (I can't ever recall anyone liking them much at all. Satsuki Yotsuba is a personal underdog fav but it's too bad she's not featured often, but again, during the Mahora Festival arc she had moments of importance. Misa of the cheerleaders easily took the biggest plummet this chapter (leader takes the big fall I suppose). And sorry to any Satomi fans, even from 5th to 7th polls, she's dead last. Once again, I imagine she had risen slightly during Chao's big arc and focus.

RECENTLY ADDED: OK now that I added the ranking movement from the 6th and 7th poll, I'll add a few more comments based on the movement between the 6th and 7th poll, which I'll cut and repaste so you can see:

01 12607 Setsuna (1st, same spot)
02 10151 Asuna (2nd, same)
03 08142 Evangeline (4th, up 1 spot)
04 05705 Konoka (5th, up 1)
05 04947 Nodoka (3rd, down 2 spots)
06 03776 Ako (8th, up 2)
07 03456 Yuna (11th, up 4)
08 03203 Chisame (6th, down 2)
09 03053 Yue (10th, up 1)
10 02884 Akira (13th, up 3)
11 02704 Chachamaru (17th, up 6)
12 02695 Makie (9th, down 3)
13 01983 Sayo (21st, up 8)
14 01856 Kaede (14th, same)
15 01792 Kazumi (7th, down 8)
16 01345 Ku Fei (19th, up 3)
17 01279 Madoka (24th, up 7)
18 01152 Ayaka (12th, down 6)
19 00831 Chizuru (22nd, up 3)
20 00768 Haruna (16th, down 4)
21 00704 Sakurako (23rd, up 2)
22 00639 Zazie (15th, down 7)
23 00511 Natsumi (25th, up 2)
24 00510 Mana (18th, down 6)
25 00447 Chao (20th, down 5)
26 00383 Misora (26th, same)
27 00255 Fumika (27th, same)
28 00191 Yotsuba (29th, up 1)
29 00190 Fuka (30th, up 1)
30 00127 Misa (31st, up 1)
31 00064 Hakase (28th, down 3)

-Biggest jumps (just like the manga noted) were Yuuna up 4 spots to make the top 10, Chachamaru who jumped 6 spots from 17th to 11th (she was the first person Negi found once separated so she's been around a lot), but the BIG jumps were easily Madoka from the cellar at 24th to 17th (again I imagine due to the Ako relation for a bit), and Sayo who went from the low 10 list to 13th, jumping 8 slots. Akira got a nice jump of 3 spots too, as did Chizuru and Ku Fei.

-Biggest drops as you got to have people drop too, you had Makie drop 3 slots from the top 10 at 9th to 12th (again being that high still baffles me), Kazumi dropping like a rock from 7th down 8 spots to 15th (and amazingly lower than her partner in crime Sayo!), Ayaka who dropped 6 spots from 12th to 18th spot, Haruna who dropped 4 spots, AND AMAZINGLY ZAZIE who was last poll at 15th until her 7 spot drop this poll (guess just SHOWING UP during the Mahora Festival helped her ranking?), Mana down 6 spots, Chao down 5 (see, both were prominent antagonists in the previous arc and suffer from being absent now pretty much) and poor Hakase who was out of the last spot for 1 poll, but now back there. Also note in the top 10 it was actually Nodoka who dropped 2 spots to allow Eva and Konoka by her, while Ako and Chisame flipped spots.

There you go, have fun with talking about it and take care!
