UQ Holder
Volume 1


Twelve-year-old Touta Konoe has spent his whole life in a rural town. He dreams of one day going to the capital, where there is a tower that reaches into space. To fulfill his dream, he has been tasked to defeat his teacher and caretaker, Yukihime, who will then permit him to go to the capital.

Touta's life turns upside down when a bounty hunter arrives to claim a prize on Yukihime's head. In a desperate attempt to save both his mentor and friends, Touta follows Yukihime's instruction to drink her blood, turning him into an immortal monster capable of defeating the bounty hunter.

Yukihime reveals herself to be Evangeline Athanasia Katherine McDowell, a centuries-old vampire. With her identity now exposed, she and Touta flee to the capital and embark on an exciting adventure that will change both of their lives forever.

From what I can presume, UQ Holder is some sort of sequel to Negima, that ridiculous ecchi harem manga with lots of distasteful stripping and panty shots and all kinds of fanservice. Which made me avoid it even until now, because I couldn't stand supposedly great manga that can't help but ruin their stories with terrible ecchi.

Couple of weeks ago, I discovered UQ Holder, recommended to me (didn't know about that whole Negima relation thing for a time). It was pretty nice. I would rate it an 8/10 a couple of days ago. A tale of dreams, adventure, and friendship. A standard shounen and a read more

This manga is one of the best I've read. The fact that Ken Akamatsu has made another great manga doesn't surprise me. I was sad when I read the last chapter of Negima, it left a empty hole in my heart. I cried silently when I finished it in a public place then when I got home I cried for literally 20 minutes, going back and forth to get tissues. When I heard of UQ Holder, that empty hole was once filled again. The fact that UQ Holder has more characters, returning characters, and it continues the story of Mahou Sensei Negima just makes me read more

With the series finally approaching its conclusion in a few weeks, it seems fair to write a review now. It's been a journey, UQ Holder. And I've loved everything you've written till now, Ken Akamatsu. But this was just not it.

Minor spoiler, but in the latest chapter, the entire Negima cast pulled up outta nowhere. I can't lie, seeing Negi and his crew again sent serious chills down my spine. Sentimentality put aside, though, it's easy to see what it really is: Akamatsu went "dammit! Screw this!" and just started drawing all his favorite characters from when he was actually good at writing manga. I read more

I dont usually read manga so when a friend recommended uq holder, i was very hesitant to read it. But when I did read it, I regretted not reading this earlier.

The review is based on the first two arcs of the story, untill chapter 30.


Similar to fairy tail, uq holder is an organisation that helps those in need in exchange for money. I like such a plot because it can give a variety of different arcs; darker, sinister ones and light funny ones.However, uq holder also has a lot of unanswered questions such as Totua's parents death. Even though it apparently seems that the read more
