Mahou Sensei Negima! has had its first ending in the final chapter of the 38th compiled volume that was published just recently (Thursday, May 17th, 2012) in Weekly Shounen Magazine. Do not fret to worry, though. Ken Akamatsu, the author of the series, has said that there is work and story for at least 100 more volumes and that this is just a temporary cease in the publishing of the manga.
Everyone, thank you for your long-lasting patronage. “Mahou Sensei Negima!” which has continued for 9 years, will come to a temporary stop at volume 38. By “temporary”, I mean the series will be revived sooner or later. To put it like Chao, the conclusion shown in this volume is merely one of several parallel worlds. “Negima!” still has far more undiscovered mysteries that would easily surpass 100 volumes in length (lol). However, given that the multimedia franchise has met a thorough completion and that I was able to see the “B Version Ending” in the movie, I decided to depict a conclusion for the original story as well. If, in the future, you happen to see a new episode of “Negima!”, I would be ever grateful if you could take it into your hands. One of your remaining questions may just melt away.
