Interest Ken Akamatsu: Future Negima! 'Revival' a Possibility
posted on 2012-05-17 22:34 EDT by Ko Ransom
In an author's comment in the 38th and final manga volume of Ken Akamatsu's Negima! Magister Negi Magi! manga, Akamatsu writes that the series is done "for now," specifically noting that the phrase "for now" leaves open the possibility of a future revival of the series.
He then goes on to say that "To put it like Chao (a character in the series), the ending in this volume is only one from a number of different parallel worlds," and that his series still has enough hidden mysteries in it to easily last 100 volumes. Akamatsu's comment ends by telling readers that if, in the future, they see a new episode of Negima!, it would make him happy if they picked it up.
Akamatsu launched the manga in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2003, and Kodansha published the 38th compiled book volume this Thursday. Del Rey Manga began publishing the manga in North America, but Kodansha USA took over publishing duties for this title and others in 2010. The manga inspired a television anime series, several video anime releases, a live-action series, a film, and a few manga spinoffs.
