Or that her parents were greedy bastards and named her after a currency.

Chao = Chinese, Negi = Chao's grandfather,
Negi X Chinese = 1/2 Chinese..
1/2 Chinese X Chinese = Mostly Chinese
In conclusion, Chinese in the class of 30 = Ku Fei

or she could have just been lying, or negi pimps all the girls or negi pimps a girl not yet introduced, or etc etc etc...

i don't believe she said negi was specifically her grandfather either, wasn't he just her ancestor.

Generally an ancestor is a parent or a grandparent, great grandparent, etc.

With that said just because Chao is chinese doesn't mean Negi has to be with Ku Fei or any chinese woman. One of Negis future grandsons or granddaughters could end up with a chinses person.

I thought Chao was from much farther into the future. Grandfather and grandchild just seems too close. Although we'll probably never find out how, what I'd like to know is where in the family line did descendants lose their natural magic. Chao may have been a genius, but her magic was forced, wasn't it?

She is able to use magic due to some special speel patterns/tattoos on her body. As for the ancestor thing Chao woul be a descendent from far far in the future because I'm pretty sure she is from far in the future. So Negi is probably a great great great great grandparent.

Yes, I know that. But she's supposed to be a direct descendant of one of the most powerful mages ever. Yet, she practically possesses none of that natural power.

Unfortunately I don't think we will ever know how Chao doesn't posses her own raw magical power or how she may have lost it. She still has the talent though to use high level magic.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Chao's magic activating chant nearly identical to Negi's.

Also is it just me or do the marks on Negi's body when he uses dark magic resemble the marks on Chao's body when she used magic?

My guess is, Negi's and Ku Fei's family lines will cross at some point of the future to form Chao's. I doubt they are going to end up together.

A shy-moe is defined by their shy reactions in mainly personal happenings. Sure, we've seen Nodoka brave and couragous, but looking at the more private moments, like her recent escapade with her new friends, its clear that she's still a shy-moe.

Basically, as long as she keeps blushing and going 'uhm.. uhm..' she's still a shy-moe.

Random question, is Negi pronounced as "Negi" or "Neji"? Never watched the anime, so I don't really know.

It's negi, because of the spring onion joke.

Not to mention that there's no "soft g" sound in the Japanese language.

Next chapter should be a more exiting one. I can't wait for it.

About this:

"(he also raises the cards one by one and asks 'which one negi is going for' do note that Rakan says 'oh, your face got a little red' when he raises Nodoka's card. A hint?)"

Negi blushing when Nodoka's card was raised in front of him doesn't mean that he has feelings towards Bookstore. Most logical reason for his blushing is that Nodoka is the one who confessed to him of her love and kissed him. And, yes, ladies and gentlemen - it's NOT a hint.

I know, I know, I was joking, just like Rakan was. Heck, Nodoka/Negi is rock-bottom on my list of favourite pairings, but I couldn't help but notice it and joke about it.

Is it just me, or Nagi himself has a character similar that to Jack Rakan?

What do you mean? Do you mean Negi and his short attitude change in 215? I think that was just a joke on Akamatsu's part. Negi's still the same determined and genius, yet clueless, brat.

No, he meant Nagi. From what little we know of the guy, he is sort of like Rakan. Both of them are idiots and both have an urge to show off.

Its little to go on though.
