kotaro isn't an eastern mage. he uses ki not magic and if he were an eastern mage he would be using shikigami instead of fighting himself.
And the gigant spider that was with him when he fought Negi the first time, wasn't it a shikigami...sure it was. So Kotarou is an eastern mage,but he reather uses ninjutsu then eastern magic or charms.
The topic is going somewhere else I see...
For Koutarou's partner, I'd suggest the best suited for it was either Kaede, Mei, or neither... Since Koutarou is a *Wolf* who prefers going solo than in group.
West meet East? Here's Mother and Son:
I think that honoka wants a patner because setsuna says that girls cannot kisss girls in a chapter so why not make kotaro(inuyasha lost brother)his partner
HxH is back in October =p
if they realy want to scew things up yue he has no brains and she has more than enuff
Ehehe, nice idea... Though I doubt Yue would like that. Kotarou is a "fighter" so I guess his partner would be more of "support" class.
i want it to be mei xD
mei's cuteee and kotarou seems to get along wif mei
[insert cool signature here]
ok the girls most likely to be kotarous partner
Natsumi, Chizuru, Kaede, Nodoka, and Mei
for Natsumi and Chizuru they both live together so closeness breeds love
for Kaede they fight and train together, and if Kaedes bathes with kotarou as she did with negi, then theres possibilities there too
for Nodoka, kotarou constantly refers to her as cute, and he seemed to have a little crush on her kyoto arc, but that maybe gone by now, and Nodoka seems too horny for negi
for Mei, i think aaroneo can answer this one better
