As we were re-reading Negima in our community Discord server, an idea came to form. Who is truly the strongest of Negi's students? We have made a tournament-style bracket made up of the entirety of Class 3-A. The idea is simple. Each girl is paired with another, but in a battle, who would win?
The idea was inspired by one of the many features in the Negipa books, which covered the very same idea. Some of the results were rather surprising, so we had a thought: how would the community's answers compare to the official ones?
This battle takes place immediately after the School Festival arc in the manga, so any growth made by the characters in volumes 19 and up will not be considered in this tournament. This follows the same rules as the tier in Negipa.
Voting took place on the Discord server and we'll highlight some of the best reasoning to the community's votes.
