The new story of Negima is set in a futuristic version of the Negima! world and will be called UQ Holder! It will start airing in October 2017. To celebrate the broadcasting of the new Negima series, a complete box set of Negima! Magister Negi Magi will be released in 3 volumes.
Negima! Magister Negi Magiagi (Maho Sensei Negima!) started airing in January 2005 and is based on the manga by Ken Akamatsu. The second season aired in 2006 and was followed by an OVA and a movie.
Box 1 comes out on 28 June 2017 and includes Season 1, Negima! Magister Negi Magi.
Box 2 comes out on 9 August 2017 and includes Season 2, Negima?!.
Box 3 comes out on 20 September 2017 and includes the movie, OADs, and more.
It also comes with a compilation of songs that are connected to the anime, including the hit theme song ‘Happy Material.’
Box 1 comes with the compilation CD and a cover illustrated by Ken Akamatsu. Last but not least, the 31 Pactio cards, which were included as a present in earlier products, have been re-printed and will be divided and added to the three boxes. The cards were also illustrated and designed by Ken Akamatsu.
The first box set includes a re-printed version of the following pactio cards:
Negi, Sayo, Yuna, Kazumi, Yue, Ako, Akira, Misa, Asuna, Misora
In the series, pactio cards are used to perform magic. It is explained in the manga that it is something that develops when a wizard and one of their followers make a contract ritual called Pactio. The card shows the follower, with which the contract was drawn and has noted down their attributes and abilities. The first cards that were designed and illustrated by Ken Akamatsu came with the 2004 Negima! character song CDs. The rarity of the 31 cards is making them worth collecting.
