UQ HOLDER!, Vol. 1 by Ken AkamatsuThe Negima! manga franchise had a really badly-written end due to some wrangling in the Japanese parliament. Basically, media industries over there want to have their companies gain greater control over the characters in their products as the comics companies in the US have. Many authors, fearing loss of the creative control over their stories ended them prematurely. Ken Akamatsu, creator of Negima! was one such author. Therefore, he rushed an end to the series, which really upset fans as it just wasnt very good.
After the bill mentioned above failed in the Japanese parliament, Akamatsu decided to revisit the Negi universe, this time through the eyes of immortal vampire Evangeline from the original series, and her ward, Negis grandson Touta.
UQ Holder! begins two years after Evangeline, now going by the name Yukihime, became Toutas guardian. Following some tragedy which everyone thinks was a car accident, Evangeline took Touta in and he lost his memories of before that point. This doubtless will become a major plot point later on.
Touta has some big, but largely indeterminate dreams. They are really quite vague. He just knows he wants to go places, do things, sing, other stuff. Really, my description is not that far off how vaguely he himself describes his dreams. At first, Evangeline doesnt want him to leave the small rural town where they live, but events change that.
Those events are Evangeline having no choice but to sire Touta as a vampire to save both their lives when he is nearly killed by an evil bounty hunter. The newly-vampirized Touta saves the day, but now is an immortal vampire.
They decide to leave town and start anew somewhere else where folks wont know their secrets. Somewhere they can have peace from those who would want to harm vampires and other immortal people. Thus the adventure begins.
This is kinda fun to see the two characters play off of each other. They are such opposites. Shes a really old female vampire, and hes a young, brand-new male vampire. She is jaded and tired of immortality, while he thinks immortality is great. She is gruff and stern, with a hidden heart of gold, and he is kind and very trusting, but can be very tough when the need arises. Each one really is what the other needs.
This dynamic between the two, and allies they meet along the way, is at the heart of the story. It is what makes it worth reading. Oh, it has lots of action, and, in the beginning, probably too much gore (though that stops quickly enough to a typical shonen level). But thats not what makes the story so riveting. Their familial bond of love does. It is quite funny and heart-warming all at the same time.
A quick note about the title. The letters “UQ” are translated from the Japanese kanji for the word meaning “eternity”. The title UQ Holder! literally means Eternity Holder, which refers to the main characters immortality.

No recent wiki edits to this page. Originally serialized in Weekly Shonen Magazine.
At least that means they wont leave out as much stuff as they did with Love Hina! Yes, 52 episode, but there are 66 chapters, and more coming. I think they need to double up 2 chapters in one episode. You should read the LH manga mr. I don't have the time right now. Yah, and hopefully after the 52 are over, maybe they will release some specials or something, thatd be nice :D Somehow i got this really bad feeling that it will get licensed when its about at the half :. Do we know the number of manga volumes there will be, I thought i heard there might be like 40, but this was a rumor from the bookstore owner where i got my Negima manga from.
Magister Negi Magi. Negi Springfield, a year-old wizard who recently graduated from Merdiana Magic Academy in Wales, hopes to achieve two things—to find his missing father, who was once known as the Thousand Master, and to become a Magister Magi, someone who helps the everyday world through magic. To reach his latter goal, he is assigned one last task: to teach English at a middle school in Japan. Much to his surprise and dismay, he not only discovers that his homeroom class consists of 31 girls, but also ends up revealing his true identity as a magician to Asuna Kagurazaka, one of his new students. Negi must now negotiate with the girl and face his most difficult challenge yet—to keep his identity a secret as he tackles magical threats both from within and outside of Mahora Academy, all the while keeping a watchful eye out for his lost father.
It took me ages to fnd it, in the end I had to grit my teeth a bear with a apinfully slow torrent, I don't know where you could download it direct. In reply to mirokuneo14, First off, I'd suggest buying it. I downloaded the first volume and liked it enough to buy the rest of the books. I haven't been disappointed yet. Here is a direct download , but if you are going to download all of it, please donate to the site because
