…dude take a look again. I'm talking who Negi married. That was Negi's daughter in that grave and the father is the son of Konoka Konoe. Now I don't see the name of the Grandmother that Negi married.

What make you so sure it is his daughter? It could be his son that kept his mothers name, not her son that kept her name.

And what makes you so sure that he's the son of Negi? dude, Negi's father and Konoka's father are friends and if Negi did like Konoka wouldn't he be in bed with Konoka instead of Asuna? Also I definitely know that the daughter is Negi's. And like I said on my long post I explained that she is because of her hair. Although the manga is in black, white, and gray, white is the color of light colors in the manga. Since I saw Negi's mother's hair in white and in the Colored cover of the manga shes a blonde. Meaning Negi's daughter got her traits from her. Konoka sons hair is black like Konokas.

Chapter 11
That was a fun read. But I could of sworn I've saw some familiar character design from Akamatsu-san's past works... But maybe that was just me

I'm completely unfamiliar with Negima, but decided to give UQ Holder a try since it's one of the titles that CR now has all the chapters (to date) of, and there are few enough that it took little time to get caught up. I wouldn't say it's anything especially great, but it's been a fun read and I like the characters, so I expect I'll keep reading as each chapter comes out.

Well that was kinda cool... but how did Evangeline grow up? I guess it's alright though, loli-vampire from the previous series would be kinda weird in this timeline.

they explain it around chapter two or three. She uses those Pills that Negi and Kotaru were using so they participate in the tournament in the magic world.

Her real form is still chibi loli.

Lol @ the last scene. This manga continuously has a balance of good comedy and characterization. Loving it so far.

best to read negima first so you can pretty much understand for what's to come.

The original Mahou Sensei Negima by Ken Akamatsu. Not Negima Neo. The original contains all the things you need to know for what might relate to the Negima series in UQ Holder. It will make everything clearer if you read it.

WARNING: Negima spoilers below...

then dont die yet!! all the negima fans have been waiting for the answer of whom Negi married and god damn Akamatsu-sensei knows how much we want the answer. He's been trolling us since the Negima series ended. i encourage everyone who loved the series to keep reading and not to die until this new series answer our question and be finished.

That isn't the only question. We don't know which universe this is in! Is this in:
Universe 1: where
- NO (The Space Elevator wouldn't be there in that universe, I don't think...)

Universe 2: which resulted from the
- Possibly, no way to tell really...

Universe 3: where
- This is the most likely universe...

Now, for who Negi could have married...

Karaman wrote:
We all at first thought that this series was shipping Negi and Asuna but due to fact that they are related it is highly false.

Not so! Asuna is not that closely related. She is probably an Aunt or something along those lines, but not necessarily closer than three or four generations. Royalty frequently marry that close.
. However...

[I will list the likely candidates and my reasons why I think they may be his bride...]

Candidate #1 - Seat #8 - Asuna Kagurazaki - status Highly likely
Arguments against:

Arguments for: We do know that Negi and Asuna were together a good amount of time, based on the final chapter bio of Ayaka:
- This argues strongly in favor of Asuna being Negi's wife. In addition,


Candidate #2 - Seat #29 - Ayaka Yukihiro - status NO
Arguments against: See the spoiler blocks for Asuna. The manga says outright that she doesn't marry Negi.
Arguments for: None!

Candidate #3 - Seat #10 - Chachamaru Karakuri - status NO
Arguments against: She is a robot. She wouldn't be able to have children.

Arguments for: None!

Candidate #4 - Seat #4 - Yue Ayase - status NO
Arguments against: It is stated in the manga.

Arguments for: None!

Candidate #5 - Seat #27 - Nodoka Miyazaki - status NO
Arguments against: See Yue.
Arguments for: None!

Candidate #6 - Seat #13 - Konoka Konoe - status Practically NIL
Arguments against: It states in the manga that

Arguments for: Tōta's last name is Konoe. She, or some relative, is his ancestor, so I suppose she could have married Negi, or used him as a sperm donor in order to have a child with her wife Setsuna. Let's face it. She didn't marry Negi. She doesn't swing that way!

Candidate #7 - Seat #15 - Setsuna Sakurazaki - status NO
Arguments against: See Konoka above. She doesn't swing that way...
Arguments for: None!

Candidate #8 - Seat #3 - Kazumi Asakura - status NO
Arguments against: Not really much of a candidate. She is a journalist. Her interest in Negi is as a news story.

Arguments for: None!

Candidate #9 - Seat #2 - Yūna Akashi - status NO
Arguments against: Not really much of a candidate.

Arguments for: None!

Candidate #10 - Seat #14 - Haruna Saotome - status NO
Arguments against: Not really much of a candidate.

Arguments for: None!

Candidate #11 - Seat #12 - Kū Fei - status NO
Arguments against: The manga states that
No indication that she and Negi marry.
Arguments for: None!

Candidate #12 - Seat #20 - Kaede Nagase - status NO
Arguments against: The manga states that
No indication that she and Negi marry.
Arguments for: None!

Candidate #13 - Seat #16 - Makie Sasaki - status Small chance
Arguments against: The manga states that

Arguments for: She was a girl who confessed to him and in the final chapter
Still, I doubt it. She is too mundane.

Candidate #14 - Seat #5 - Ako Izumi - status Small Chance
Arguments against: In the manga bio
In addition, she was more hooked on the "Nagi" version.
Arguments for: She did eventually confess and she does


Candidate #15 - Seat #6 - Akira Okochi - status Small Chance
Arguments against: In the manga bio
She was one of the last one to form a contract and her feelings for Negi were only hinted at, really.
Arguments for: She did appear to have feelings for him and


Candidate #16 - Seat #25 - Chisame Hasegawa - status Minimally small chance
Arguments against: The manga states that

Arguments for: I suppose there is the chance that Negi marries her and she
Not very likely though...

Candidate #17 - Seat #26 - Evangeline Athanasia Katherine (Kitty) McDowell - status NO
Arguments against: She was in love with Nagi, not Negi. In addition,
After Negi's death in
she very obviously continued to watch after his descendents, though she was unable to save Tōta's parents, she did "save" him... at least from being completely dead...
Arguments for: None!

The rest of the girls are listed as either having been married to someone or suspicion of marrying someone. They are out...

My bet is on Asuna in Universe 3, Kū Fei in Universe 1 (due to Chao seeming to be of Chinese descent), and one of the other girls, or none at all, in Universe 2.

EDIT: Looking at some of the stuff about the manga, it looks like this story must take place in Universe 2 or 1! Why? Because of the date that magic was revealed to the world. In UQ Holder, it was "10 years ago", which would be 2076, since it starts in 2086, with Tōta being born in 2072. In Universe 3 of Negima!, magic and the magical world were revealed in 2009, five years after middle school graduation. The final chapter takes place 7 years after graduation and it had been 2 years since the magic reveal...

Therefore, it must be a different universe than the one at the end of Negima! Perhaps it is Universe 1, in which Chao is a descendant of Negi and the world is in bad shape. Bad enough that she feels a need to go back and change it somewhere around 20 years (or more) after UQ Holder takes place. (The question remaining is, does Negi have other descendants living on Mars at this time?)

Anyway, probably over thinking things... But the magic reveal dates certainly don't match up between the final chapter of Negima and the first chapter of UQ Holder, suggesting an alternate universe scenario, in which case all bets are off!

My bet is still on Asuna being his grandmother and Negi's wife. Part of this is his personality. Who does he remind you most of from the Negima series? What are his attributes aside from his new found immortality?

1. He is an idiot! - +1 Asuna
2. He is abnormally strong (he did massive weight training exercises before he was made "fully immortal" by Yukihime/Eva/Kitty. Asuna was abnormally strong as well, even before her magical abilities blossomed or she got a contract with Negi.) +1 Asuna
3. He is frivolous and directionless and really just wants to have a good time with his friends. +1 Asuna!

Personality wise, he is much more like Asuna than he is either Konoka or Negi. (or his other grandma, Setsuna. Yeah, I'm sticking with the magical genetic manipulation baby for Konaka and Setsuna as the dad. it just has to be the case...)

I wouldn't be surprised if Akamatsu totally avoids answering who Negi does marry. Depending on the overall plot and how far along the story we get before the series ends, it's possible Akamatsu will skirt around it until he gets to the point where it has to be revealed to advance the plot (assuming we even get to that point).

As for which universe/timeline speculation, frankly it could be anyone of them. The war happens in all the timelines including Negima's and it was for Mars' independence so that means it had to have happened after the space elevator was built. For the sake of convenience, I'm assuming UQ follows the Negima story timeline.

Who Negi marries: The end of Negima doesn't provide a concrete answer but does give plenty of clues for speculation. I'll round the students into 4 groups.

Well Negi + Asuna could easily lead to a lineage that can't use magic......
