According to the author's notes on the final volume of the manga series Mahou Sensei Negima!
, the author Ken Akamatsu
stated his ambitions for another long-running serialization.
Ken Akamatsu said:
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.
Mahou Sensei Negima! had its last chapter released on March 14th, 2012, and the last (38th) volume was released yesterday, Thursday, May 17th, 2012.
