To be frank, I couldn't care less about who did he like. I let that girlish stuff to, precisely, girls. But I find this ending way to short, like made in a rush. I really can't believe such a great manga will have this (quite lame and unexplanatory) ending, and considering it mentions stuff like "that's a story for another time", I really don't think this is just over like that.
Ok for everyone who is complaining about us not getting our answer. well we did, in a way. If you go back to the end of chapter 353 Asuna forces Negi to confess who he likes.
Asuna also states that everyone still has a chance.
In 355 no we dont find out who Negi chose because of the time of the epilogue Negi is still single. and no he didnt get married because that picture of him in a tux is at kotaros and natsumi's wedding. And It also states that Makie is still chasing after Negi. After we do all the math removing the ppl who never had that connection with Negi, ppl who are with other ppl and all those who ended up away form negi you can narrow it down to Four conclusive endings
1. Negi is living the bachelor life.
2. Negi is dating Asuna
3. Negi is dating Chachamaru, after all she did get wound up everyday.
4. Negi is dating some one who is not one of his students
I would add Makie but she would have no need to chase Negi if she already caught him, nor would she still be chasing him if he got married.
I am for number 1. He is working on stop and wont have the time for a significant other. yea he could have settled down at the end with one of the and if he did thats fine. We already know what student he had a crush on that should be enough.
And why hasn't nobody mentioned Eva? For one I like that pairing, and Asuna said in chapter 353 "I mean you are both the same kind of people" (well that phrase can still be interpreted in many ways)
Do anyone know why this rushed ending? Is there something official or just speculation?
I would like to share my story today..
Its about how I got into negima..
I found my first copy or negima back when I was in a treatment center for my sickness, I was 12..
The doctors told me my recovery would be hard..
I give up hopes back then, I was alone in the states doing my recovery..
I was ready to accept death or permanent immobility..
But then one day, they change my room to the old wings..
In that room, I found someone left a copy of negima, it was a pirated one, bad english as well..
I reach to it out of boredom,
and I remember it was when they in the Library Island..
My heart race reading it, my mind travel far to japan and my soul is cherished..
I look it up on the internet, and Im hooked..
I look forward to the weekly release, and I start to smile, I start to believe..
A year from that Im fully healed, out of the center, go back to middle school and have a normal life..
My life was reformed by negima, it give me hope and laughter..
It gave me courage to face the future, and faith in people..
Not a day I do not check the internet for the new release..
Now Im 19 and in Switzerland doing my Bachelor..
Im crying out of happiness the manga is a huge success and the characters reach their happy ending..
But a part of me is uber sad for not being able to thank Akamatsu Sensei properly..
I wish I could send him a letter of gratitude..
Just to tell him my story, and how his story got me through hard times..
Chemo was painful, but I always told myself "hold on, be strong! U will live and u get to read more negima!"
And I did, and Im healed.. A huge part of it thanks to Negima..
I would love to know where to send a letter for Akamatsu Sensei..
If any of you could help me, I'll be grateful for the rest of my life..
Well considering every time someone gets picked in a harem there's usually a s.storm from the 'Internet Otaku Community'(IOC) for who isn't picked, you can't blame authors in general for sidestepping due to abuse.(see Kampfer for example).
either way,though I think this was a decent manga. Always thought that the manga could of done more with Negi's dark powers rather than the harem aspect.

I was extremely disappointed with this whole ending. He completely wasted the last few chapters on gags rather than actually wrapping up the story. He practically completely ignored the whole overarching drive of the main character. From the beginning, Negi's whole goal was to find his father, and instead it was relegated to a brief mention in the final chapter. Getting led on for 300+ chapters only for it to be completely skipped is just....Also, we never did find out what happened to Negi's mother either.
Ive seen some pretty terrible endings but this ranks up there with some of the worst. Its not even right to call it an ending, more of a "wtf was that?" kinda deal.
Was there any reason outside of boredom for this crap ending? As far as I know it had pretty good ratings and there was no legal reason either.
So I read the Chapter but I'm a little confused. Who did negi end up with?
As I expected, the poor boy was abused by these girls when he didn't even have reach puberty for too long. He never was in love to begin with, he just told Asuna one girl he likes a bit more than the others. He is now insensitive.
Best harem end so far, the raging girls got what they deserve.
By the way OtakuModeEngage who's Yume?
