Just remember the important ones that actually played fairly important roles up to now~
Asuna, Konoka, Setsuna, Nodoka, Yue, Evangeline, ChaChaMaru, ChaChaZero, Makie, Ku Fei, Kaede, Kazumi, and Ayaka.

I also happen to remember these:
Chisame, Fuuka, Fumika, Yuuna, Sakurako, Satomi, Chao Rinshen, Mana, Akira, Madoka, Haruna, Sayo, Zazie, Ako, Natsumi, and Chizuru.

...the rest I don't remember. >_<

So looking at Ayaka as being rich and high in society I think this may be a kind of "flowering Rich Girl?" or just "Prosperous Woman"
Hmmm, that doesn't sound very combat related. Mebbe she can win fights by bribing the other side!

What does Asuna's card say?

bellatrix comes from bella = beauty or beautiful trix is a suffix for female ( the version for make us taur, sometimes spelled tor in modern language)

sauciata just means shes saucy...

bibiotecaria means librarian

I personally enjoyed the Del Rey editions, but there are others who'll say that it's lacking in translation and colour pages. Having said that, they are the only legal way you can read the manga in English (so far), so go for it!

I bought the second volume of the MNM manga yesterday. I'm going to say right away that the Latium Lexicon Negimarium is full of errors. My Latin professor would have a fit. The Latin phrases themselves are okay, but the "translations" aren't always accurate. Magister Negi Magi can't mean Wizard Negi-Sensei unless you wish to introduce new grammatical rules for Latin. But I really do appreciate the Latin.

Great job! I was hoping someone was going to do a detailed job on the cards!

Just to clarify on the Charta Ministralis ("Ministral" Card), the Minister (the "Ministral") is the partner of the "Magister", the one who protects the Magician. (That fact is in volume 2, so it's not really that much of a spoiler.) The number that is listed is the seating in the classroom- so Asuna, who is card 8 sits in seat 8.

You find out more about the process of selecting a Minister and what the cards do in volume 3.

Well, at the time then I translated the cards, I didn't have the book. I haven't updated my translations yet.

Anyway, your explanation makes sense. Ministralis in this case should be an adjectival form of Minister (male partner, male attendant) or Ministra (female partner, female attendant), so Charta Ministralis should mean something like Ministerial Card as in Attendant Card.

I have something to say about the HILARATRIX on the Sakurako card. None of my dictionaries list the word hilaratrix or its masculine form hilarator. Google doesn't help me find anything else that attempts to define the words except a Japanese Negima site. I also found a site that mentions Thresor de la langue françoyse, but that isn't helpful to me.) I wonder where the creator of the card saw hilaratrix. Anyway, I can look at the word and tell what it means. The verb it came from is hilarare, meaning to cheer. If you rip off the are ending and stick the a and the trix suffix at the end, you have something that means she who cheers, which is a good word for cheerleader.

There is some writing on Asuna's weapon that I didn't notice until now. There seem to be three words, but I can't make out the second one. The first one is "MINISTRA" and the third one is "ASUNA." The Japanese site that I mentioned earlier shows "ensis exorcizans," meaning exorcising sword.

I think I read in the news recently that some latin language body recently added new words to the ocabularyvay, and some linguists didn't like the new words the body came up with because they were applying ancient application to what were essentially modern words.

Yes- I wonder if it helps you to know that along with the card (which does lots of neat stuff!) the subject of the card gets some kind of instrument (not necessarily a weapon)? It then makes it interesting to speculate from the description provided on the card and what we know about the character on the card what speciality that person does.

BTW, Evangeline's partner has

Not really off topic... but- yay for flying turtles! Is that the spoiler or is it the text? And two thumbs up for having Ayaka on the cover (at last!)

My copy is coming on Monday! Unfortunately the sender didn't send it the day it came out, but rather the day after the weekend, which was a long weekend! Oh well, I am getting it, so I can't complain.

Spoiler:
Asuna's full version sword says "MINISTRA NEGII ASUNA" whereas ChaChaZero's blade says "MINISTRUM MAGI CHACHAZERO." I personally think it just means "mage's partner so-and-so."


.


Oh, and off-topic again, but Ayaka's single "雨上がりの天使" is pretty good. I think the seiyuu (Minagawa Junko; yes, Echizen Ryoma from Prince of Tennis) does a wonderful job portraying the elegant lady-like Ayaka. ^_^
