Upcoming season? This is the Negima manga thread, manga doesn't have "seasons", that terminolgoy applies to anime not manga The English edition is up to Vol 9 now, not sure how far the Japanese releases are (I'm sure someone has posted that info in this thread already).

How much have you read, or have you (as you imply) only watched the anime. If you have only seen the anime, then I would certainly recommend trying the manga since it much better (and doesn't suffer from the problems of the poor anime ending since it doesn't happen in the manga). The first volume can be a problem to some since it contains so much fanservice and panty shots but if you are able to cope with this you should find the plot entertaining.

But if you are worried about the ending of the anime, then it isn't a problem with the manga since it isn't part of the actual story (or at least in the way it was presented in the anime).

wheee... blundering through B&N last night, snared volume 10 of the Del Rey edition. Now I have weekend reading. They hadn't been shrinkwrapping the volumes lately but this one is so I figure some fanservice is inside..... (quick flip later) looks like this is my book with lots of Tatsumiya goodness..... and others....

Really? I don't get it sometimes, since I've seen many 18+ titles w/o shrinkwrap and on reachable shelves.

Oh yeah, has anyone else taken a gander at Chapter 137?

Most likely it was someone else, although in the American version of vol. 5, some of Negi's students do mistake him for a girl when he makes his first appearance in the story.

Spoiler:
The whole "shrinkwrap" thing is very flaky and inconsistent ... I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Finished volume 10 over the weekend... now I have to reread it as I was turning pages too fast. Lots of detail in this one and a lot of very nice focused chapters on particular young ladies. Ken is doing a pretty good job maintaining the "older sister or future lover" tension on the Negi-Asuna vector. The Yue dilemma exposition is pretty good though I might have picked something other than the rude little ermine to pull it along. Evangeline and Takamichi were interesting... hmmm.

And just how old *is* Tatsumiya?

I'm kind of wondering how many volumes Ken A. has this plotted out for -- and for how long a storyline: will we watch people grow into adults? Technically, he could string this along all the way through University years since the school is an "all in one" campus.

Most of the chars seem, by looks-wise, to 16-18, but then this is manga and i think the girls school year says they are around the age of 13, thats not case for eva and and ghosty girl.

Tatsumiya could be older and just be an agent payed to be in that class. But then the reference of her being a merc when she was younger and the time references seem to make her about 13/14.

Well... I knew the "middle school" age bracket and Sayo's and Eva's age checks.

I was referring explicitly to Negi's response after Tatsumiya filled him in on her background.
