Negi became a Magister Magi by the age of fifteen years old, an awesome feat in the minds of many. He is a kindhearted person, with a very optimistic outlook toward life. Though only seventeen years old, he displayed at the early age of ten maturity far beyond his years much to the amazement and admiration of his older and rowdier students. His dedication has gotten him towards this point, as well as his bravery. Negi has shown himself to be intelligent, analytical, perceptive, and deductive. As a teacher, Negi's grades are near the top, despite his work as a mage in training. Aside from that, Negi appears to be able to determine the pattern of his opponent's battle methods and correctly deduce a proper counter-strategy to defeat his opponent's attacks.
Negi's intellect is one of the key skills of his leadership abilities. It was Negi who came up with the plan to defeat Chao using the entire school. The Mahora Fest event. Mars Attack Vs Mage Order. Negi has also said that he has created a plan to save the magical world. Which no one else has been able to do. Not even fate or Kurt Godel. Negi has shown time and time again that he is talented at using advanced spells and incantation like "Thousand Thunderbolts" and techniques like "Magica Erebea. He is also an expert at developing new spells (thunder god spear: titan slayer) and new ways of using old spells (Ōka Hōken). He is also an expert at delayed spells.
Negi is a young lad that grew up far too quickly, and thus he lives in a community of older people and is the youngest and most inexperienced of them all. He knows a lot of theory and tactics, but has had barely any chance to apply them in real life. This has also stunted his social growth amongst his current peers with his current age. He's very easy to deceive. Negi is slightly weak physically due to the amount of magic he has had to project through his body while fighting in the past. He did all of this before he was fully developed, and so while exerting himself for any amount of time, he will take far more damage then the normal individual.
In the very beginning, despite being very mature for someone his age, he had the emotional level of a child and at the time didn't realize the full extent of the feelings his students had for him. He is also naive in many aspects of the world and his normally optimistic outlook on things does put him at a disadvantage when a more realistic approach is needed. His naive nature also seems to make him rather gullible as well as he seems to take relatively minor things as very serious. Negi's one true character flaw is that he tends to push himself too hard, especially for someone his age. His drive to match his father's achievements takes a heavy toll on him both physically and mentally much to the worry of the ones around him, particularly Asuna.
Negi Springfield is the son of master mage Nagi Springfield, famously known as the legendary "Thousand Master" and Arika Anarchia Entheofushia, the last Queen of Vespertatia, she fought along side Nagi in the Great war and was instrumental in ending it. Early in his childhood, Negi came to live with his older cousin (whom he calls older sister, since they grew up together) Nekane Springfield in a small village in the mountains of England. Even as a small child, he lived pretty much alone in the guest house, with Nekane coming to care for him during her breaks while studying in Wales. While there, he befriended Anya, a little girl about a year older than him who helped him study magic, and even gave him his first training wand. Negi spent much of his time getting into trouble, hoping that if he were to get into enough trouble, the Thousand Master would come to save him. His antics ranged from being chased by large dogs to nearly drowning in a river.
When Negi was four years old, his wish came true, with unfortunate results. A horde of demons appeared and attacked his village. Just as a demon was about to attack Negi, the Thousand Master appeared just in time to save Negi from receiving a fatal punch from the demon. With a few strikes and a powerful spell, he destroyed all of the demons but the village was already in ruins and most of the villagers had been already petrified. When the fighting was over the Thousand Master saw Negi and before parting he left Negi his staff and a few words. After the incident Negi, Nekane, and Anya were moved to a village of magicians in Wales, where Negi immersed himself into his studies. He graduated from Magic School at the age of nine at the top of his class of only five students to graduate that year. His certificate of graduation read that to become a Magister Magi (Latin "Master Mage") he must take on the assignment of teacher in Japan as part of his training. The Headmaster sent Negi to Mahora Academy, a school run by the dean Konoe Mo who is a close friend of the headmaster. As part of his assignment Negi is now the homeroom and English teacher of Class 3-A of Mahora Academy Middle School as the teacher of a class of formerly 31 girls.
Negi's teaching career at Mahora middle school got off to an extremely rocky start. As a ten-year-old boy in front of a rambunctious classroom full of 14/15-year old girls (the teachers even mention them being the most energetic class in the school), to his surprise and embarrassment was mob-cuddled by nearly the entire class as soon as he introduced himself. At the start he seemed to have exceptionally bad luck with Asuna Kagurazaka, the first of his students he met as he entered Mahora and also a student whom he not only managed to get on the bad side of before he even began, but discovered that he had to live with as well. However, over time, Negi managed to prove his worth as a teacher to the class, showing them, much to their amazement and sometimes shock, that his maturity, reliability and natural charm are far beyond those of the typical adult, let alone a young naive ten-year-old boy. Negi came to teach class 2-A late in the school year, and as the girls prepared to take their exams, Negi was given his final test to become a full-fledged teacher at Mahora Academy. The test was deceptively simple: Ensure that all the girls in 3-A passed their final exam. Unfortunately, Class 3-A was the bottom-ranked class in the school, particularly the five lowest-scoring students in the class, which he had gathered into a study group dubbed the Baka Rangers (Asuna being part of this group as Baka Red).
As Negi searched for ways to improve the grades of his students, the Baka Rangers discovered a legend about a magic book in the Academy's main Library, which was supposed to make anyone who used it smarter. The Baka Rangers, along with their classmates in the Library Exploration Club, decided to make a journey into the depths of the library to find it. However, the Library proved to be far more than anyone would sensibly imagine a library to be. With Negi's magic voluntarily sealed away, the Baka Rangers, despite their additional studying and surprisingly formidable physical abilities, found themselves trapped in the deepest underworld of the library, where Negi convinced them to do some more real studying while they searched for a way out. While studying, they were attacked by the guardian of the book. The Rangers managed to not only get the book from it, but also found a way out with the help of an express elevator to the surface. But because of problems with the elevator they had to sacrifice the book to get back to the surface and back to school, where they were just in time to take the test.
Unfortunately, despite the added effort by the rest of the class, 3-A was still ranked at the bottom. Dejected, Negi prepared to leave, despite the pleas to stay. However, it was later discovered that the scores of the Baka Rangers hadn't yet been added to class 3-A's total score. Graded by the Headmaster himself, the scores were re-tallied. The combined scores of the Library Club, as well as the much-improved passing scores of the Baka Rangers, pushed 3-A's score right to the top of the school. Shortly before the school year started up anew, Nekane sent him a letter, where she teasingly wondered aloud about Negi searching for a Ministra Magi yet. Negi was explaining to Asuna about Ministra Magi, but was overheard (and misunderstood) by the Narutaki Twins who were ease dropping through the door. They proceeded to tell the rest of the class, that Negi came to Japan to find himself things from a girlfriend, partner, fiancee, and even a princess (one of the rumors was Negi was actually a prince looking for a bride).
As it turned out, the discussion was rather timely, as Negi began the new year by finding himself in a battle against two of his own students, a vampire named Evangeline A.K. McDowell and her android partner Chachamaru Karakuri, which was an impossible fight for him as he had to deal with their teamwork that never allowed him a chance to chant his spells let alone use them. At the same time, Albert Chamomille, a shady friend of Negi's from Wales, arrived with what he figured was the perfect solution: get a Partner of his own. However, Negi refused to get any more of his students involved in the battle. So he tried to take Evangeline alone once again in a valiant effort, actually holding his own with his collection of antique magical items, but eventually being overwhelmed by Evangeline and Chachamaru's abilities. The battle seemed lost for Negi until Chamo and Asuna saved him. Chamo convinced Negi that the only way they can win is to form a temporary contract with Asuna. With Asuna's help, and a timely sneeze, Negi managed to defeat Evangeline.
After the battle with Evangeline, Negi discovered from her that his father used to spend time in the Kansai area, particularly around Kyoto. At the suggestion of Asuna and Chachamaru, he scheduled a four-day class field trip to Kyoto. Unfortunately, the Headmaster informed him of bad politics between the Kanto Magic Association, which he was the head of, and the Kansai Magic Association over the use of Western-style Magic. A condition for allowing Negi and his class to go on the trip was he was tasked with safely delivering a letter to the head of the Kansai Magic Association, and beware of people who would want to interfere with the affairs of the Kanto and Kansai Magic Associations. However, his students managed to complicate matters, from the possibility of Setsuna being a Kansai spy, an actual Kansai rouge trying Konoka, and Nodoka confessing to Negi that she liked him. Other complications also arise as Kazumi nearly revealed his secret to the world and then scheming with Chamo to get the entire class embroiled in a game to get them to make contracts with Negi. In the end, Nodoka managed to win the game, with help from Yume tripping Nodoka and her landing on Negi's lips. However, the group of Kansai rogues were still after Konoka and her slowly awakening powers. The enemy managed to infiltrate and attack the castle, kidnapping Konoka and petrifying everyone inside, along with Konoka's father. The Kansai Rogues used Konoka's latent magic power to summon a powerful demon.
Negi, despite using all of the powers he could, couldn't damage the powerful demon and still had his hands full with another powerful mage named Fate Averruncus. The chance of victory seemed non-existent as Negi was face to face with two unbeatable opponents. Only with the intervention of Evangeline and Chachamaru was the demon able to be destroyed and forced the mage Fate to escape. After the Kyoto incident, Negi feels that he was still lacking the strength to protect those who are important to him. To improve himself, he enters an apprenticeship under Evangeline in order to learn magical combat skills, and asks Ku Fei to teach him martial arts, particularly Chinese kenpo. When Evangeline discovers this, she rescinded her agreement to train Negi, only agreeing to it if, with the help of Ku Fei's training, Negi manages to land a single blow on Chachamaru. Negi trains hard under Ku Fei's tutelage, Makie alternately helping and hindering along the way, but in the end, she manages to inadvertently give Negi the opportunity to hit Chachamaru and earn his training. Negi's training, in both magic and martial arts, progresses at a swift rate. This is partially due to the use of Evangeline's resort, an island in a bottle where time passes at a rate of one day for every hour in the real world. This allowed him to get in a full day's training without disrupting his duties as a teacher, although it did tend to wear him out.
In late June, Mahora Academy held the Mahora Festival, a massive, world-famous school festival celebrated by all schools. During the preparations, Negi was formally introduced to the other Magic teachers and students who also attended the academy, and was told a surprising secret: Every twenty-two years, the World Tree, a mountain-sized tree that dominates the skyline of the entire campus, would glow with power around the same time the festival was held. For some reason, the glow was coming a year early. This glow signified a sharp rise in the magical energy in the area, and at certain points around the tree, even a simple confession of love would have the same effect as a powerful charm or curse. The mages of Mahora had to make it their duty to ensure that no such confessions took place in those areas during the festival. Unfortunately, Negi also had a very full schedule with seeing to his students, many of whom were counting on seeing him at the various events their extracurricular clubs were hosting, not to mention a fighting tournament at the festival that both Kotarou and Evangeline were expecting him to enter. At the same time, another problem comes up, with another of his students at the center. Chao Lingshen had gotten in trouble with the faculty for spying on them, particularly those who used magic. Negi managed to talk the teachers into allowing him to take care of her, and not to erase her memories. In thanks, Chao gave him a special watch called Cassiopeia. During the first day of the Festival, Negi, worn out from previous events, ended up oversleeping (along with Setsuna) when he intended to take a short nap.
Panicking that he had lost the entire day, the Cassiopeia watch activated, taking Negi and Setsuna all the way back in time to the beginning of the day. With a time machine at his disposal, his overstuffed schedule was much easier to handle, as he could always go back in time and take care of anything he did not have time to do before on the next go-around. Over the course of four "days", Negi would see the festival's attractions with Setsuna, go on a date with Nodoka (With disastrous results for Asuna), and help some of his students with the class' haunted house. He would also see his other students at their club activities, patrol the festival for confessions, try out for the tournament, and even help Chisame win a secret cosplay contest, all within the first day. The second day, Negi participates in the Mahora Fighting Tournament, along with Takamichi and many of his own students. Between his training by Ku Fei and Evangeline, and his own intelligence, Negi makes it to the finals, defeating Takamichi, Takane D. Goodman, and Setsuna in turn. However, Negi lost in the final match to Alberio Imma, a compatriot of Negi's father Nagi, housed his Pactio artifact to become Nagi as he was shortly before Negi's birth.
After the tournament, Negi discovers that the tournament is part of a plan by Chao to expose the "Inner World" of mages, demons, and monsters to the "Outer World." To this effect, she has leaked images and video of the tournament all over the world. Thanks to his impressive showing in the tournament, Negi becomes an almost instant celebrity. For the rest of the second day, Negi avoids the inquisitive reporters and others by using the age-disguising pills to make himself appear to be a teenage version of himself. During this time, He spends some time (and another trip through time) with Ako Izumi, another of his students, who happens to have fallen in love with his older-looking self. After attending Ako's concert, Negi goes back in time again to attend the tour of the school's library, where he finds himself in the middle of Yue's conflicting feelings between her friendship with Nodoka and her own crush on Negi. This is eventually resolved, resulting in a fifth Pactio with Yume and Haruna Saotome also taking advantage of the opportunity to make a pactio of her own. He also tries to help Asuna that night with her date with Takamichi, but it doesn't go as planned. After hearing from Ku Fei that Chao plans to drop out of the Academy and return home after the festival, he confronts her to find out why she is trying to expose the mages, as well as her reasons for leaving. Chao responds by challenging him to a battle. If he wins, she'll give up her plans. but if he loses, he'll have to join her. Either way, she says that she'll also tell him the truth in the process. Chao gains the upper hand in the fight, until Setsuna and Kaede intervene. They grab Negi and make their way to the school's roof, where Chao is ambushed by the entire class... who throw her a surprise going-away party.
After the party, Chao leaves, with the situation unresolved. At the end of the night, Negi gathers his partners, as well as Kaede, Ku, and Chisame, and brings them all to Evangeline's resort, to figure out how they're going to deal with Chao's plans. Unfortunately, when they leave to begin the final day of the festival, they find that they've fallen into a trap. Chao had rigged the Cassiopeia watch that Negi has to activate on its own during the third day of the Festival and send him into the future. It results in Negi and his crew being stranded there eight days in the future, where Chao has succeeded in her plans to expose magic to the world. The magic teachers of Mahora Academy, Negi included, are being held responsible for their failure to stop Chao, and will likely all be turned into Ermines. Negi is arrested by Gandolfini and imprisoned in a magic-proof cell, as they await their punishment. However, Negi's partners rescue him,and they find that the tree's roots are still glowing with enough power to activate Cassiopeia one more time. Negi activates the time machine, bringing them all back to the present.
Forewarned with the knowledge of how Chao pulled off her plan, Chamo and the girls allow Negi to rest while they go off to set up Negi's plan to stop her: Using an old store of weapons designed to stop magically-empowered constructs, they arm a thousand of the festival goers under the pretense of the festival's new Main Event: A "staged" battle between mages and the Martian robot army. Mahora Academy quickly becomes a surprisingly non-lethal war zone, magic disruption blasts exchanged with clothes-stripping energy beams and time-displacement bullets. During this battle, Negi finally recovers, just in time to have a seventh Pactio initiated by Chisame, who is needed to counter a cyberspace attack by Chachamaru. Once again, Negi found himself in conflict against his own students, as he found his path barred by Mana Tatsumiya and Chao's robot army. With the help of Kotarou and his other students, however, Negi fought his way to a final showdown with Chao atop an airship hovering high over the festival. Negi managed to hinder Chao, forcing her to reveal her magical power with Fire as her elemental affinity-much to the surprise of all witnesses of the battle especially Negi.
In the middle of the battle, Negi warned Chao of her disastrous power as it may endanger her life however, she ignored the warning and replied that she had "killed" herself for 2 years for her purpose and ambition. At the climax of the battle, the magical symbol at Chao's head burst and Negi achieved victory against her but the battle left them both drained of energy. Unfortunately, the battle lasted long enough for Hakase to finish the spell. However, Chao told Negi that she had ordered Hakase to alter the spell in the event Negi managed to defeat her in battle. The spell was changed to a very powerful wish for world peace for one day. While everyone celebrated the end of the festival, Negi confronted Chao again and asked about the magical seals on her body. Negi confessed that he believes they had something to do with her tragic 'past' but she doesn't answer. Several of her other classmates arrive and but not before asking her to become a strong mage at his side. To keep Negi and the others from stopping her from leaving, Chao revealed her most diabolical weapon yet: Her family tree, which would by definition contain just whom Negi eventually marries therefore, literally inflicting psychological damage to Negi's party.
After the Mahora Festival, Negi and the others went beneath the World Tree to an appointed meeting with Alberio and Evangeline, where Negi finally received irrefutable proof that his father was still alive, even now. With the first term over, Negi is planning to spend the summer by going to Wales in hopes of entering the Magic Country and finding more information about his father. Asuna and several other girls are invited to join him, (either invited or Negi being coerced). They are now officially recognized as the English Culture Research Club and are given permission to travel overseas by the Dean of Mahora. Accompanying Negi when he goes on this trip are his Ministrae Magi (Asuna, Nodoka, Setsuna, Konoka, Yue, Haruna, and Chisame), Kū Fei, Kaede, Chachamaru, Kazumi, Sayo and Kotarou. Along with his students and Kotarou, Negi is also joined by his childhood friend Anya, who arrived in Japan 12 days before the trip to check on Negi. After a series of misunderstandings and some more training sessions, Negi and his associates head out to England. After arriving in London, they are soon found by Ayaka's group and meet up with Donet McGuiness. After a cheerful reunion with Nekane and a short tour of his hometown, including the Merdiana School of Magic where he and Anya graduated, Negi reveals his intent to enter the Magic Country to search for his father to Nekane. He is led to the basement of Merdiana and is shown the still-petrified remains of those who fought to protect his village.
This only steels his resolve as he and the rest of the White Wing Club prepare to enter the portal to the Magic Country. Negi's trip into the Magic Country starts smoothly, but immediately begins to go wrong. Due to the immigration laws, he must keep his Pactio cards, weapons and other magical items within a sealed container before entering the city. He is informed by Donet that four unauthorized people had also teleported along with the gathered mages. Sure enough, the people being detained are four of his students: Yuna, Akira, Ako, and Makie, who until now, had no idea of his magic abilities. But before he has the time to do anything, he is suddenly attacked by Fate Averruncus, whom he had also fought in Kyoto. Though gravely injured by Fate's initial attack, Negi manages to fight back after the release of his Pactio Cards and weapons from their sealed container. Konoka manages to heal Negi's injuries with her Pactio Artifact but Fate still delivers several attacks before leaving the scene with a parting blow which destroys the Gateport. Negi and his students are scattered across the Magic World, hundreds of miles away. Negi finds himself stranded in a rainforest with Chachamaru at his side. Slowly, starting with Chisame, Negi finds out where most of Ala Alba and the four accidental stowaways are.
He and Kotarou enter a tournament to free Ako, Akira, and Natsumi, who had also passed through the gate. After an early battle, Negi is attacked outside the tournament and saved by Jack Rakan, although not before Negi gets his arm severed off. After Negi recovered from his injury, he left to train with Jack Rakan. Rakan tells Negi there is a way to reach Fate's level, but Negi have to make a choice. He must choose one of two magical paths: embrace light magic and continue in his father footsteps, or choose dark magic and follow his teacher, Evangeline. Negi is told that once he chooses one of these paths, he can never go back to the other. In the end, after realizing he can no longer follow his father's past, he chooses dark magic to forge a new identity. Negi then falls into a coma and fights a spiritual copy of Eva in a duel inside his mind. If he loses, he will either die or lose all of his magical abilities, but if he wins he will gain the power to defeat Fate Averruncus. After two days, Negi is seemingly defeated by 'Eva'. But after remembering his friends encouragement, Negi finally understands the true meaning of the test and embraces the darkness. Negi takes a full blast from 'Eva' and absorbs the energy, and unlocks his dark powers. However, by the time of the Ostia Festival, Rakan pronounces that Negi is not ready yet. During the rescue of Nodoka, Negi utilizes several techniques learned from Eva and easily defeats the bounty hunters.
Right after the Ostia Tournament has started, Fate Averruncus shows up and confronts Negi with a deal; Fate would safely escort Negi and his friends to the gate portal in Ostia in return that Negi will leave the princess to Fate. Negi refuses the offer angrily and attacks Fate in the street, but he is blocked. Fate decides then that he does not need the princess and offers a second deal for the safe return of Negi and his friends: leave Fate and his companions alone with their plan to destroy the Magical World. Fates objectives are also to render Negi powerless, like the demon Graf Herrman tried to do when he came to the Mahora Academy, and which Setsuna attempts to reveal to Negi, with a powerful magical item that would force him to honor his word if he chooses to leave Fate alone, even if Negi lies when he says it. The reason for this, about why it is one of Fate's objections, has not been released yet. Negi eventually refuses Fate's offer, so Fate officially declares Negi his nemesis. Fate then launches a physical assault on the group and Negi retaliates with Magic Erebus and the fight between him and Fate begins. This time, it seems that Negi is as powerful as Fate and to Fate's surprise, Negi easily punches Fate's stomach. Still, Fate seems to be more powerful and Negi can't defeat him that easily. During the fight, when Nodoka and Kotarou arrive, they learned Fate's real name is Tertium.
After the battle, they have to leave because the security guards from Ariadne are coming. While Negi was escaping, he flew past Yue, who was in an Ariadne Royal Knight uniform. Negi recognizes her, but isn't really sure since Yue doesn't remember him. Soon, the rest of the guards catch up to Negi, but Yue let's him go, although she doesn't know why she did it. Back on Haruna's ship, he wonders if that was Yue and why she actually helped him to escape. Later, they have a meeting on what they have learned about Fate and his intentions. According to what Negi manages to read in Nodoka's petrified diary it says that one of Fates missions was to render Negi powerless. Then Rakan starts to explain how the whole story started with a video to Negi and the Ala Alba. The video shows Nagi and his comrades during the Great War 20 years ago. It shows how Rakan became a member of Ala Rubra, how and why Nagi became a hero, their fights with the enemies; Fate (who appears as a young man), with the secret organization Cosmo Entelecheia who nearly succeeded to destroy the Mundus Magicus and how the world was saved. Negi finds out that he has gotten stronger. Later, Negi gets nervous when he founds out that Rakan has entered the Nagi Springfield Cup.
Rakan tells Negi that as he is Nagi's rival and Fate has lost to Nagi, he and Nagi are on about the same power level. Rakan expands, saying if Negi cannot beat Rakan, he won't beat Fate either, and since Negi is after true strength defeating Rakan himself is Negi's gateway to that level. Chisame tells Negi that Rakan's strength is around 12,000. Negi demonstrates a new spell he's attempting to learn; Khilipl Astrape (Thousand Thunderbolts), which has 10 times the power of Jovis Tempestas Fulguriens. That spell was previously the most destructive in Negi's arsenal. However, Negi's Khilipl Astrape isn't yet perfected with a lengthy incantation, but he intends to absorb the perfected spell to multiply his maximum strength by a factor of 5 or 6. Even Theodora, Seras, Ricardo and an illusory Evangeline have come to help Negi with some extra training in order to defeat Rakan. Theodora makes a temporary pactio with Negi, in which Negi is the minister and Theodora is the magister. Theodora says it will be their first "ace in the hole" in the fight against Rakan. Negi's final stage of training was mental, and took place inside of Evageline's scroll.
Once Negi finished his training he and Kotarou began the fight against Jack Rakan. At first in the fight it appeared that Negi had the upper hand in the fight due to his artifact and use of Raisoku Shundou but as the fight continued, Rakan found weaknesses in the technique and used them against Negi. After a barrage of devastating blows by Rakan, Negi was down for the count. However, he remembers his promise with Ako and miraculously stands up. Negi then asks Kotarou to buy him 43 seconds for his ultimate comeback in which Kotarou gladly accepts and turns into his ultimate shadow-dog form. Kotarou then buys him 38 seconds fighting both Rakan and Kagetarou. Kotarou manages to take down Kagetarou, but is defeated by Rakan. Negi then activates his ultimate spell and pummels Rakan with overwhelming speed, but sufficiently lacks the strength and power to finish it. During the ball he completes his Pactio with Chachamaru and Ku Fei then goes to meet Kurt Godel in a private room, with Nodoka, Asakura, and Chisame accompanying him. Kurt shows a flashback saying that the Megalomesembrian Council was responsible for the attack on his village causing Negi to be captured by Magia Erebea and attempting to kill him. He is stopped by the girls and it is reveled that Kurt wanted to be killed in order to place him within his group in his attempt to protect humans against various evils of the Magical World. Through the battle, Negi realizes that Kurt's fighting style is the same as Setsuna's and using his knowledge of this he turns the battle to his advantage and nearly beats Kurt, but the spell starts to take over again. He is saved through the combination of Chisame using her artifact to shut down the projections in the meeting room and Asakura, via her artifact, informing Ku Fei of Kurt's coordinates. This results in not just Ku Fei smacking Kurt with her staff, but also for Kurt to confront Takahata.
After Takahata tells Negi he would take care of Kurt, his group made their way back to everyone else. Unfortunately, the members of Cosmo Entelecheia attacked, which results in Nodoka and Asakura being separated from Negi's group as well as came into the possession of the Diarium Ejus. Nodoka used it to find out why Kurt didn't want to save the rest of the Mundus Magicus citizens. While Negi and Chisame looked at the pages, Negi witnessed the end of Rakan's battle with Fate, where Rakan ended up being erased. Consumed by darkness and the desire to kill, he went berserk, attempting to attack Fate but was stopped by Rakan who told him he could beat him yet. He kept himself visible for only a few moments to tell Negi that the one they were traveling with was most likely not the real Asuna. Negi faints, only to awaken in Haruna's ship. He's briefed on the overall situation of the Magical World, that all people of the world with the exception of humans are illusions. He then deals with the situation about Asuna, unaware that Chisame, Mana, and Nodoka have followed him and are serving as back-up. But to find out if the Asuna with them is an imposter or not, discovering her true identity by kissing her.
The kiss results in the imposter, a Ministra Magi of Fate's named Luna, not only reveal her true identity, but also, thanks to Chamo, made a Pactio with Negi. With her cover blown Luna reveals that the real Asuna was in the Gravekeeper's Palace. He is told by the fake Eva that because of the side effects of magica erebea he has the choice to either die or become a demon. If he didn't want this, then his only choice is to overcome the side effects of Magia Erebea and bend it to his will. So Negi then began training to overcome the side effects of Magia Erebea by having Eva induce his demon form, thus forcing him to try and overcome it. During his training his confidence begins to waver and after Akira tells him about the feelings of Ako and Makie he started to think he doesn't deserve their feelings until Akira tells him other wise. He attempts to make a pactio with Ako as Nagi but Ako stops him and tells him she wants to do a pactio with Negi. After forming a pactio with Ako, he forms one with Yuna and after regaining his confidence from a talk with Makie he makes a pactio with Makie as well.
With Negi's training to overcome the darkness at his limits he recalls past things he had been through and things people have said to him. Negi finally overcomes the darkness that was trying to consume him and finds his answer as he battles the fake Eva and gets faster and stronger as the battle goes on. He finally manages finds that answer to his questions on his own and manages to beat her. She asks what will he do if the darkness tries to consume him again what will he do, he replies by saving that he can rely on the members of Ala Alba to help him. Later he gets a call from Kurt and Tamakachi and hurts tells him that the forces of the Magical World has unite once more to deal with the crisis of the world that is currently at hand. But, they are most likely no match for the main forces of the enemy and their own hope is Negi and Ala Alba. Negi alerts everyone else of the situation and they all agree to take on the task. He devises a plan based on their goals and objectives and prepare for war until Tsukuyomi appears and attempts to attack and kill them starting with Collete until Negi quickly stops her. She gives Negi a message from Fate and leaves but not before using the Code Of The Life Maker to summon hordes of demons. Negi quickly goes out to fight the demons to clear a path for everyone else to Gravekeeper's Palace and is joined by Setsuna.
They reunite with the rest of the team and head into Gravekeeper's Palace as they are quickly confronted by who appears to be Zazie. She asks if he will stop from going down this path because it shall result in Chao's future, Negi replies by telling her that he is aware of that and shall not stop. She then uses her artifact Magic Lantern Circus on all of Ala Alba the only two who were not caught were Chisame and Makie because they were completely content with the life they have. This artifact is a imperfect replica Cosmo Entelecheia "The eternal garden" that Fate is seeking to create. Negi lived in a fake world where there were no enemies, he had loving parents and is a teacher at Mahora. When he is warned by Zazie that this world wasn't real, he breaks Cosmo Entelecheia and systematically weakening it for everyone else in the process. Negi questions Poyo why she is so certain there is only one possible future. She tells him that the Magical World will eventually collapse. Negi shocks everyone by saying he has a plan that can save the magical world and prevent the future that is set to happen.
As the rest of his group moves forward they encounter Dynamis and a few of Fate's girls. As battle gets underway, Negi realizes that Dynamis has the same power barrier as Fate. However he quickly breaks through it. Negi together with Kaede attack Dynamis. Kaede tells Negi to go on ahead to Fate and she will fight Dynamis. However as he goes Negi notices a crack in the fabric of space and quickly realizes it is an attack and takes the hit because if he doges it, it would hit Chisame and Nodoka. He loses control of his darkness and enters his devil form which has seemed to have changed and somewhat evolved and battles Dynamis. Once the battle wages on Dynamis seems to have the up hand however Negi overwhelms Dynamis defeats him. Negi rushes to attack Dynamis to finish him off but Shiori switches to from Asuna to herself and stands in the way and he attacks her instead. Negi goes berserk after he sees blood and the girls try to hold him down until Chisame reveals he didn't kill her.
In shock over everything the devil mode Negi turns to stone with cracks all over his body. Konoka attempts to heal him but she is unable to and concludes he is in a half-dead state. Negi is stuck in the void, the space in between life and death. There he meets his father and he asks him is he sure he doesn't need to go, but Negi doesn't remember where he is supposed to go. Nagi asks if there was someone who Negi risked his all to keep chasing, someone he kept looking for. These statements trigger a reaction within Negi and he begins to remember everything. Nagi comments that it just sounds like that Negi is following in his footsteps and is looking to surpass him. He then departs from the void and stops Sextum, He then goes off to battle the Averruncus of Fire before moving on to Fate. He quickly stops his attack from destroying Paru-Sama and everyone on board. After he sees Chachamaru broken in two he becomes enraged and quickly destroys the fire demon that the Averruncus of Fire created. It is soon apparent that the Averruncus is no match for Negi. Unable to hit him not even once having all of his hits blocked and evaded.
Negi defeats him in one blow. He then rides the Paru-Sama up to the location of his final battle with Fate, where he is waiting. Fate says that he was waiting as Negi prepares for battle. Fate quickly delivers a powerful blow to Negi's face but he is unaffected. Negi then proceeds to deliver a powerful blow to Fate in return. As the battle gets underway Negi and Fate attack each other with all their might. Negi then transforms into his Raisen Taisou II form and battles Fate head on. Fate questions if he can shoulder the world with his softness and he vows he can. As their battle rages on, Fate notes that his strikes now rival Jack Rakan's and that Negi has surpassed him in strength. Negi manages to overpower Fate and pushes him back into a corner and Fate claims their battle is nearing it's end. After a talk with Shiori, Negi learned of a different side to Fate. Negi asked him to be his friend because he likes and wishes to be friends with him. Fate calls him stupid and tricks him into a deadlock by asking for a hand shake. He then apologizes and asks Fate to lend him his strength and in return he will lend him his. Asking him to be his friend and comrade. Fate then gives up and states that it is Negi's victory. After Fate gives up, Negi tells him that his plan shall take ten years and he is needed for that plan.
As they shake hands and Negi helps Fate up they are shot by a blast from a far off distance. It soon is revealed that all fallen members of Cosmo Entelecheia that were defeated twenty and ten years ago have been revived, Negi tries to stand up to them but is overwhelmed and defeated with Fate only to be saved by his master Evangeline. A bit after the backup from Mahora and the revival of Rakan, Evangeline cast what may be her most powerful spell. Just as Evangeline ordered that Negi should be sent back to Mahora, the Mage of Beginning stopped her, grabbing Negi by the neck. Negi is saved by Asuna, and together proceed to attack The Mage Of Beginning. It is then revealed that the Mage of Beginning is none other than Nagi. He tells Negi that he must kill him in order to end everything and fades away. Afterward Asuna using the Grand Master Key to revive everyone who was erased and restores the Magical World, and a few days later everyone relaxes and enjoys a party celebrating their victory. And with all of the magical world's citizens bearing witness Kurt announces Negi as son of the Thousand Master and hero who saved the world twenty years ago and the man who saved them all this time around as the new hero and savior of the Magical World.
Afterward, summer vacation ends with everyone returning to Earth and school begins again. However Negi has Fate become the substitute teacher of class 3-A. When he returned to Mahora Academy, he invited Yue, Nodoka, Makie, Natsumi, and Fate for tea, Chachamaru soon immediately offers her help in his plan. He hesitated a bit and did not want his class involved in his plan when thinking about their school life and future careers but stopped due to Chamo's and Asakura's small interfering and Chachamaru's decision. Negi said that his plan will take a very long time and will be difficult but offered Chachamaru a chance to which she immediately accepts. Later, he reunites with Chisame and give her a souvenir to which she easily gets mad and throws it back at him. They later have a drink and as soon Negi reveals his plan, Ayaka takes over. It turns out that his plan is some sort of "space development". Negi and Kotarou (both disguised as Nagi and Kojiro) both later meet up with Fate who is also disguised in his older self (calling himself Feitas). Negi is approached by Misa about his relationship with Ako, and through hilarious circumstance, the six began a so-called "Triple Date" something only Sakurako and Misa called, and arrive at a nearby Karaoke bar. Both Negi and Kotarou are taunted by Fate's performance for singing at try to overthrow him, but fails.
After Kotarou and Kugimiya leaves for the restroom, Misa is seen having a conversation with Negi while the girl berates over how innocent Negi is. Negi is then confessed to by Misa just as Kugimiya and Sakurako both confess to Kotaro and Fate respectively with Ako at the sidelines. At that moment, The three boys transforms back into their original and younger forms. After the transformation, Fate scolds the girls, which shocks everyone and Negi demands why Fate forced remedial classes for the three cheerleaders, which Fate says that he was having fun, confusing the boy. Negi later seen with Fate and Kotaro, all in their adult forms again, meeting up with Ayaka and Asuna at an expensive restaurant. Negi is then scolded with Kotaro by Asuna on the triple date that Fate has mentioned. When Ayaka revealed that she has made a Pactio with Negi three weeks prior that day (using a very heated French kiss, and an almost reversed Pactio with Negi as a Ministra), the boys talk to each other about why Negi made the Pactio and how it would effect Negi's plan to save Mundus Magica. Later, Chizuru revealed to Kotaro that she has also formed a Pactio with Negi, to the young boy's surprise and conclusion that Negi is indeed the "Enemy to all womankind".
Following a Time Skip of 130 years, due to Asuna's slumber required in the Negi's plan to save the Magic World, it is shown that Negi's plan to terraform Mars succeeded and Mundus Magicus has been saved. After Asuna meets with a descendant of Ayaka she learned that Negi died on June 12, 2065. With the exception of Evangeline and Chao, everyone else died with Ayaka lasting the longest in their wait for Asuna's return dying at the age of 115 in 2104. Following Asuna's awakening, through a promise that his time skip version made with Evangeline, a third timeline is created when Asuna is sent back to the time before she left. In that time line, Negi continues his goals with the difference that Asuna is now with him. It is implied that the girl he's interested in is actually Evangeline as Asuna mentions that the girl he's interested in is the same as him. Haruna reveals that the reason she was so intent on forcing Negi to reveal his crush was because she's afraid that Negi is 'shaking off the feelings of the majority of the girls and flying off to the distant lands of masculine romance!' Seven years later, he does find and reunite with his father as well as the entire former class 3-A girls. It's not certain who he really ends up with with the timeline having changed. Now, being seventeen, he is attending school at Tsukuba Academy, boarding at the Hinata Sou Inn boys dorm instead of living on campus and he is shocking dating a young lady by the name of Nunnally Lamperouge. He still continues his training and is looking to always make new friends wherever he goes.
A powerful Magister Magi known as "The Thousand Master". He is Negi's father who was thought dead when Negi was born. Considered deceased by most, one night he mysteriously appeared before Negi to save him when his village was in danger, and gave him his staff. Negi believes his father is still alive, and follows every clue he finds about his whereabouts, determined to find him. One of Negi's reasons to work so hard is to become a master mage just like his father. Although several characters believe he is alive, no one knows where he is. In the end, Negi eventually finds and reunites with Nagi and introduces him to his students/comrades.
Negi's cousin (whom he calls older sister, since they grew up together). After his father disappeared, she and her parents took the orphaned Negi in. Her gentle personality is largely based on interpretations through disjointed flashbacks, so it is hard to identify precisely what she is like. What has been indicated however is that she took on more of a motherly role in his life, as at one time she even risked herself to protect him from harm. She is shown to be someone that Negi cares greatly for and respects a lot.
Arika Anarchia EntheofushiaEdit
After the tournament in the magic world, it is revealed through an encounter with the Megalomesembrian Senator, that Arika (First mentioned during Rakan's movies of his adventures with Ala Rubra) is in fact, Negi's mother. Not much is known about her, other than she traveled with Nagi and Ala Rubra.
Assuming that what Chao Lingshen said about being a descendent of Negi Springfield is true, then it is certain that Negi has at least one child in the future and that one of his descendants gives birth to Chao Lingshen.
She is somehow related to Arika, and is thus related to Negi. The full extent of this relationship is unknown. However, besides that, she is one of Negi's former students and pactio partner.
Negi's current girlfriend, despite the many attempts at his female former classmates have made in order to win his attention and affection. However, their meeting was unintentionally as was their relationship but Negi has admitted to being in love with Nunnally since their encounter and friendship. He treats her as if she was a regular person despite knowing the fact the she is wheelchair bound, this not changing a thing in regards to his feelings. Though he is unaware of her family background and connection to the Sailor Senshi.
Powers & AbilitiesEdit
Negi specializes in wind and lightning spells(his father's specialty), both light magic. He is has also mastered a few dark magic spells and his master's powerful forbidden dark magic technique. When Negi sneezes, he summons up a powerful gust of wind that can blow up skirts, or even blast off the clothes of anyone near him, especially Asuna's (The sneeze is considered a form of the spell Flans Exarmatios, a spell that disarms any in the immediate vicinity, including but not limited to armor/clothing). Negi's sneeze has also shown that it can unintentionally strengthen some of Negi's attacks with the extra force of the gust. He demonstrates excellent marksmanship skills, and owns many magical antiques, including a rare antique magic gun.
At present Negi has formed fifteen Probationary Contracts in the manga. In the first anime series, due to necessity Negi had to make probationary contracts with every girl in the class. Currently in the second anime series, Negi has completed a provisional contract with Evangeline and Chachamaru who were the last two students in his class, whom he didn't do so yet, meaning he has completed a contract with all of his students. He has learned Magica Erebea which initially consisted of a defense-attack (darkness-absorbing flames) mode or a mobility (lightning-absorbing thunder) mode. Until Negi mastered the Thousand Bolts spell. He then createn Raiten Taisou and Raiten Taisou II. All forms eat away at his soul and distort his soul towards the darkness. Once the corrupts peaks he turns into a Demon form and only thinks of killing the enemy. In his battle with Dynamis he partially transform his hands into the claws of his demon form to crush the barriers around Dynamis, however he lost almost all control after Dynamis pierced his chest almost killing him. After the girls manage to stopped Negi's rampage he temporarily when into a deep sleep, but when he manage to wake up he finally gained complete control over Magia Erebea by making it part of his body and turning into something that can't be called "human".
As a result of his mastery over Magia Erebea his physical strength grew to great and explosive lengths. Surpassing both Fate's and Jack Rakan's physical power and natural absorption abilities allowing him to take in some of Fate's dangerous punches due to their power. He also has accelerated healing powers as, when Asuna saved him from the mage of beginnings, his previous wound had already healed, and during his battle with Evangeline his wounds healed instantly. Negi's newfound regenerative ability gives him near invulnerability, though he does not appear to have Evangeline's immortality, given the fact that he appears to age normally and dies of what is presumed to be old age in the second timeline. Negi made a pactio with Princess Theodora before his battle with Jack Rakan, his artifact being a small journal that contains the Pactio cards for everyone he has a contract with. Using this artifact, he has access to all the artifacts of his partners. He was shown using Asuna's and Setsuna's artifacts in battle with Rakan, and he later used one of Konoka's fans to heal himself after the battle. However this pactio is no longer active.
Negi's artifact, Mile Vincula (Latin: The Thousand Bonds), looks similar to a passport. One side contains the Pactio cards of every Pactio he's formed as the Magister, while the other has a slot for holding a single card. By inserting one of the Pactio cards into that slot and calling the word "Adeat" again, the Mile Vincula transforms into the artifact of that ministra. While transformed, it gains all the powers the original has, which Negi demonstrates in chapter 241 by using Asuna's Ensis Exorcizans in sword form in a sword clash with Jack Rakan and his artifact. With the blades against one another, Negi slowly pushed his through Jack's, proving its magic-canceling abilities are very real as Jack's began to melt like butter and was sliced in two with ease. Additionally, by calling the word "Abeat" only once the artifact returns to it's original form, where Negi can swap the card in the slot with a different one or call "Abeat" again to return it to card form. Negi received this by making a Temporary Pactio with Theodora, Third Princess of Hellas Empire. However, because the Temporary Pactio was meant only to last until the end of the Ostia Tournament, the contract has now ended and the Mile Vincula can no longer be used.\
Spells & TechniquesEdit
Shundo (Instant Movement) - a movement technique that allows the user to move faster than the eye can follow. This is used by concentrating ki or magic power into the feet to get from point A to point B in the least amount of steps. It's important that when going from point A to point B that you hold to the ground with the inside of your feet or you will simply trip. Koku Shundo (Empty Sky Instant Movement) - A form of instant movement that allows the user to use instant movement on the air by bouncing of it. Lightning Decoy - Negi creates a clone of himself made out of lighting. Thousand Lightning Decoy Barrier - Negi creates a thousand lighting clones to attack, block or shield from attacks, and distract the enemy. Cantus Bellax (Song of Battle) - A form of physical reinforcement used by a mage in preparation for close combat. Aside from providing a long-lasting anti-physical shield, this magic also exponentially increases muscle tension, allowing greater power, speed and endurance; it also increases the flexibility of muscles and tendons to prevent the mage damaging himself from overexertion. In addition, the mage’s reflexes are enhanced by a moderate increase in the stimulation of the nervous system. Previously, Negi had to forcibly make a contract with himself to divert large amounts of mana back to his own body – a magic based on the Pactio‘s mana supply system. This is the completed form of the technique which Eva taught him. Melodia Bellax (Melody of Battle) - A more advanced form of Cantus Bellax used to achieve extremely high agility by supplying mana to all parts of the body. Vis Maxima (Maximum Output) - The spell to draw out the maximum performance of reinforcement magic such as Cantus Bellax. Due to the increase in mana upkeep requirements, the duration of this spell is fairly short.
One of the most basic attack spells, but also very versatile. The caster creates a number of elemental magic missiles and fires them at the target. The number can vary from just one to at least a hundred and ninety-nine arrows, but in the manga is usually a prime number. The missiles have a homing capability, and will track and follow their target at the direction of the caster. Normally, the attack fires in a widespread swarm, similar to an artillery shrapnel shell striking the target from multiple angles, but the caster, by substituting Convergentia for Series, can combine the arrows into a single larger bolt, which is easier to avoid, but hits that much harder. Negi primarily uses Light arrows that cause explosive damage, Lightning arrows that paralysis the target if they hit in addition to the damage they do, Wind arrows which usually do not inflict damage but instead bind the target and currently darkness Arrows which has the same effect has light arrows. Some mages, particularly combat mages, will also use the Sagitta Magica to enhance the power of their close-combat attacks. A single Light or Dark arrow can add considerable power to a punch, while adding a Lightning arrow to an attack is doubly useful for the reasons stated above. During the Mahora Martial Arts Tournament and later, Negi demonstrated this by using various types of magic arrows to supplement his blows, such as a technique that he named Raika Hōken (Lightning Blossom Crumbling Fist) and Ōka Hōken (Cherry Blossom Crumbling Fist). Negi also realizes that one can use their entire body to cast Sagitta Magica, and combines this with a full-body tackle.
Ensis Exsequens (Executioner's Sword)Edit
A high-level attack spell used by Evangeline and Negi, so far shown to be unincanted. When invoked, the caster's desired hand is wrapped with magical energy, which stabs outward in the direction of the outstretched fingertips in the rough approximate form of a blade.
The personal style of Negi Springfield combining Western magic and Eastern martial arts, firing spells off his fists in melee combat:
- Crushing Fist of Majestic Winds - His spell uses three wind element Sagitta Magica's which circle around his fist in a stream like from which in turn adds considerable power to his punch.
- Maximum Crushing Fist of Majestic Cherry Blossoms - A more advanced form Crushing Fist of Majestic Lightning where instead of three lightning element Sagitta Magica's its nine which supplies the spell with even more power. This spell was strong enough to damage Takamichi considerably.
- Piercing Lance of Cherry Blossom Majesty, Archduke Angler Dominator - Similar to Crushing Fist of Majestic Winds but Negi uses it thought his staff instead of his fist causing piercing damage.
- Crushing Fist of Majestic Lightning - This spell uses three lightning element Sagitta Magica's which circle around his fist in a stream like from which in turn adds considerable power to his punch. This move is powerful enough to send Takamichi flying but it wasn't enough to damage him considerably.
- White Lightning Palm - An original spell created by Negi, achieved via Magia Erebea's Actus Noctis Erebeae from. This is used by absorbing Fulguratio Albicans using Dextra Stagnans than releasing it using Dextra Emittam after making physical contact with the target.
- Hellfire Mountain-Crushing, Heaven-Bearing Palm - An original spell created by Negi, achieved via Magia Erebea's Sim Fabricatus Ab Incendio from. The spell hits the target with a close-range heatwave.
- Thunder Deity Spear, "TITAN SLAYER" - One of Negi's original spells that uses the abilities of magica erebea and combines the Thousand Bolts and Lightning spear spells into one power. He used it as his 4th "Trump Card" against Rakan at the Final Round.
- Titan Slayer: Windstorm of Martial Strength - An original spell created by Negi, achieved via Magia Erebea – that is, delayed spells. By merging Jovis Tempestas Fulguriens into the spear form of Iaculatio Fulgoris, this spell concentrates the intense destructive power of Jovis Tempestas Fulguriens into a focused "spike".
Master Hand-to-Hand CombatantEdit
Negi has become an adept combatant thanks to his training with Ku Fei; his skills became sharper from actual combat experience with adversaries such as Kotarou and Fate, and through the usage of his "Raiten Taisou II", or "Perpetual Lightning Form" has shown himself to be able to fight on par with Rakan, who is said to be unmatched in unarmed combat. As of chapter 321 it has been said by fate that Negi's strikes rivals Jack Rakan's and that Negi has surpassed even him in strength.
Even before learning Chinese Martial Arts, Negi has repeatedly shown himself to be a very agile fighter. Negi has demonstrated great reflexes in battle, able to quickly dodge a strike with no wasted effort and he can instantly counterattack right after. He is able to strike quickly without warning and in rapid succession. His speed also allows him to follow the movements of faster opponents to better analyze their movements or blocking difficult and otherwise fatal strikes. The second form of Raiten Taisou allows him to move and think at the speed of lightning (150 km/s).
Negi has been shown using a short sword several times, and wields Asuna's artifact, the "Ensis Exorcizans," with sufficient skill to over match Rakan's "Ho Heros Meta Chilion Prosopon" in their fight, but it might just be because of the "Ensis Exorcizans"'s innate magic disruption/cancellation abilities. However, he is still shown to be skilled with a sword as he displays great use of his magical sword Ensis Exsequens. Though he has called his version imperfect and not yet mastered compared to his Master's (Eva). He is shown to skilled enough to battle Fate in a intense close range and high speed sword battle.
Wind Element & Lightning Element SpecialistEdit
Negi has a strong affinity for wind and lightning magic. He is well known for using wind and lightning magic and can learn spells of these elements perhaps faster than anything else. And can easily become extremely efficient in using them. He mastered the high level long range spell Jupiter's Storm Of Thunder which combines both wind and lightning magic before he had any combat experience or training. Also, his affinity for wind and lightning element give him speed and reflexes (respectively) beyond that of a normal human being.
- Interestingly enough since Negi's mother was once queen of Ostia, also known as the "Queen of Calamity", this would mean that Negi is royalty in the magic world. Which makes the rumors of the 3-A girls, that Negi is actually a prince, true.
- Before Asuna burned Chao Lingshen's family tree book, Chisame Hasegawa 'accidentally' (debatable) glanced in it, making her the only person to possibly have seen who will be Negi's wife.
- However, after the Magical World incident, it's been presumed that the future has been "changed", thus, changing whoever will be Negi's future wife.
- Negi's name is actually a pun: Negi in Japanese means scallion, also known as green onions, spring onions or, vitally, Welsh Onions, and are in the same family as the leek, which is a national symbol of Wales. He likes spring onion kabobs with grilled chicken, because his name is in it. His nickname, "Negi Bōzu", is another pun since while "Bōzu" can be translated as "brat", "Negi Bōzu" literally means "Onion Head". Evangeline, being a vampire, hates green onions.
- According to the character design discussions in volume one, he is stylistically inspired by the titular hero of Harry Potter, in that he is a young British Mage with bad eyesight who was raised without his parents. From thereon, his idealistic, upbeat and positive personality diverges from his troubled inspiration. Volume one also states his original name as Negi T. Silverberg.
- To match this scheme, the design of the DVD-Boxes in Continental Europe, especially the Headline, uses a variation of/copies the Harry Potter design.
- Thanks to his training with Ku Fei. His fightstyle similiar to Leo Kliesen from Tekken series. Despite by their hair style and fight styles are mainly Hakkyoku-Ken.
