I'm not sure if it was the first time Nekane Springfield's name is given in full, but it shown on a letter Negi sends her in chapter 72 (start of volume 9). To be exact, it was addressed to:

Miss Nekane Springfield
1600 Mason Street
Merdiana, Wales [something I can't make out, probably supposed to be a postcode]
United Kingdom

(note that I don't think there are any streets in Wales with 1600 door numbers..)

I wouldn't know.
But he has to draw/ink everything, and I can't imagine how long it takes to illustrate one manga page. In my opinion, it probably isn't easy, especially with the page spreads and the pages which show the setting.

It is a lot. I'm amazed that people are saying that he probably makes more.

Yap, he has to do almost everything. Fortunately, he has staff to help him.

I'm sure Negima and other manga as well takes a bit longer because of more detailed background; the inks and inking process; publishing queue; retouches; and the mere fact that the magazine which Negima appear published only once a week.

Hmmm, maybe...just maybe...the first process is the story writing - Akamatsu-sensei can finish an 18-page period of his manga in less than an hour, revisions included. He has a creative mind so writing the novel will be a jiffy. Next comes pencilling, putting his story to manga concept. It takes a large amount of time due to conceptaulization. Next is inking - I'm sure, this stage is Akamatsu-sensei's biggest headache. One tiny misplaced smudge can ruin the entire page aesthetically, and this is very frustrating if you're already on the bottom part of the page. Extreme caution must be exercised on this part. I usually 'get hit' on this stage. Lolz!

Those are just my two cents, coming from a writer's point of view. Only Akamatsu-sensei know the actual process of writing his manga.

However, I read Delrey's manga that Akamatsu-sensei also employed drawing techniques with the use of a drawing software (Photoshop, maybe???). Such technique helped Negima became a beautiful and detailed background manga. With that I salute our good mangaka.

Well hellooo Asuna, looking mighty awesome there. Can't wait to get my hands on the RAW.

The 'stripping Nodoka' part though... less so. Kinda drains the tension of evil enemies away with pointless fanservice in my opinion.

Asuna looked badass, and Negi going dark mode. Can't wait to read this chapter. I don't really like Nodoka so the Tentacle thing doesn't do much for me.

Okay, actually reading the chapter is better then those spoiler pictures. The fanservice is somewhat less pointless with actually knowing whats going on.

With that said, spoiler time!

Spoiler for 218 summary:

You say that as if this is the first time we've had Nodoka fanservice.

just read 218, man, the dude sure doesn't put a mask on what he likes. This chapter must break some sort of record on how many time boobs/chest was mentioned in one chapter. Even hard-core H-manga didn't use that word that many time in a row... ^_^

One of them? The other three weren't exactly normal either. One of them hunts people to help his sick mom, another one is a demon with a serious concern for his appearance, and the last one is named 'Chiko-tan'

Seriously, I can imagine why the guy changed names...
