The ones with Latin (and Mana's) are from Akamatsu, and are (or would be) used in the manga. The others are made by the anime people are are seperate from the magna. Already in the manga, one character has been shown with a pactio whose ability is different than the one in the anime. Although Haruna doesn't have a card with Latin on it (yet), the ability design is from Akamatsu.

As for the style, according to Del Rey, it depends on the mage.

It is one of my all time favorite! Strange because I hate perverts story. Maybe I don't hate it because Negi does the pervert action not on purpose and that it is funny. Anyways, I own ten volumes and saw all the shows.

-Misora
-Asuna
-Nodoka
-Satsuki
-Misa
-Akira
-Yuuna
-Sakurako

Sayo's age though doesn't mean she's got a maturity that is second only to Eva (although we never know... she doesn't show it so far. Her magic power doesn't make one think of her as a senior with experience).

This is the manga section, what you want to be known should be asked in the anime section.

& i've already answered your questions in the other thread.

Okay... we've had two or three posters give the girl's "real" ages... but no one is providing references. Soooooo, I have no way to know if these are just educated guesses (or just guesses) or if its nailed down somehow.

So are those guesses or where's the actual data reference? Mana, for example, does poorly in class (absent a lot) but is certainly *built* and *acts* like someone much older than 14 (as does Kaede). Both girls have outside duties that imply a lot of experience and Mana's story just doesn't add up to only 14 given the story she told Negi.

If they are both 14.... can someone supply the reference data?

And Chizuru is 13???????? Even allowing for anime physics or anime biology, I'm having some trouble here.... references?

Mana is 14..? she looks like 17-19 at least
plus in the manga they say she traveled around the world doing things (if i'm not mistaken, i'm re-reading negima so i probably confirm this in a later time XD )
, plus the way she uses the weapons, so i guess she started training when she was 5 or something :|

anyway, what card draw is your favorite? D:
<3 the one with konoka in "miko" dress

Like I said... I'm not taking the age assertions by posters too seriously unless someone provides some hard references. Mana's backstory implies much more age (never mind her build and personality)... I'd put her and Kaede at least 17+ maybe older, especially since Mana heavily implied she was romantically entangled with her former partner.

I don't think calling their age based on their class assignment really works here (private school, magical situations, precedent of people being assigned to classes disregarding age, etc).

I'm pouring through the Negima novels and official websites... not finding any age references so far. So those posters with age lists ... references, please?

Hmm, i remember the ages being posted on Negima's Wiki character page - could be official?

Volume 11's just about a month away, can't wait~

I believe they're from the character guide, but I don't have mine with me so I'm not sure. They may also be in the character sketches at the end of each volume of the manga - but if they are that would make them somewhat suspect as a lot of that information has changed.

Wiki (by definition) is a guess unless they have hard references from the creator. As many people discover when they try to do research only with wikis... they have flaky layers of truth. I'll go browse them and see if they have links for reference.

Caveat: I'm not denying they may all be "14" or whatever. I'm just stating the evidence in the manga doesn't really support it and if there's hard evidence I'd like to see it. Then I can crab about lack of realism in a story about wizards, ghosts, demons, and underage girls who are on growth hormones or something, and such edit: yeah, the character sketches are really problematic for source data because of the brainstorming on them... I think Mana's heritage changes like 2 or 3 time on one page?

edit: just browsed through the wiki... its full of information but there's hardly a single instance of reference cites or source. I'm betting the ages are based on their birthday (month/day given) and working backward from the "usual" age of that class age in Japanese schools. Then they add a year for the clearly older ones. It also assumes the year is 2003 in the first volume (and that is actually well-cited based on manga hints). Until Mana's backstory, I'd have probably been okay with that educated guess, but with the recent revelations about her and some other characters, I'm less sanguine about the tactic. In fact, the ages given by Starlight are only correct using the Wiki for a small part of the year since everyone's birthday is scattered throughout the school year (which starts in April).

It can sometimes be a lil' scary how Wiki' can always get the right bits of information - so i'm gonna say they're right. I mean, there's a japanese character guide that rooboy mention, could easily be from there.

Hmm, "essentials things" as age always go to waste when it comes to fantasy, plus I think the mangaka got so focused in the character's looks than bothering with age, etc etc

But to continue with that many characters included in the story.. I wouldn't blame him if he forgot that the looks and details doesn't fit.
