Yeah... plus it has only just been a year in the manga, he came during the second semester of their second year and they just got throught the first semester of the third. So yeah, like everyone said, still 10.
Well, physically he'll be older but it also seems that magic has some effect on the aging process... like the Headmaster, he was around as long as Sayo was at the school making him well over 70 and although he does look old I believe he'd still be able to teach those youngins a lesson if needed XD
But the effects of Eva's training dimension and the watch can also be a cheap way to make him older. But if you think about it, if he trained every day with Eva he would go through 2 years for every one. Since it has been between 4-6 months he's already almost a half a year ahead, right?
Well, the resort has only been used by Negi for a MONTH, as stated by many during the tournament. The watch only does day-jumps, and Negi only used it for 8~10 times. (Someone may want to clear this up, I didn't bother to reread and recount.) So, given that Negi used the resort for only one hour a day, that gives him 47 hours a day, as one hour is stretched into 24. Plus the hours jumped... Negi should be about 2 months older biologically than his calendar age. Given a few more months of training (and an almost predictable timeskip) Negi would be well ahead of his calendar age. (Hint: Takamichi)
Ah okay, I thought it had been longer than that XD
Thanks for clearing it up.
I think you're right about the number of times he used the watch though I hadn't been counting much either... I think there were 4-5 times on the first day and 3-4 on the second. But yeah, the watch only had a 24 hour span depending on the amount of magic used... though there were a few instances where he used the watch as well as the resort in the same 24 hours.
But yeah, if he continues using the resort in that way it will continue to add up ^^
ok so roughly 10 days on the watch
and 31 days on the resort
however he went in the resort like 2~5 times a day so hes anywhere from
15 days older to 165+ days older
Hm... I guess you're right. My assumption was Negi used the resort for only once a day for one month.
If he used it 2-3 times a day, and/or stayed for more than 2~3 hours...
He could be 2~9 months older than his calendar age.
I can see it now
Negi with a full beard, grown man(technically like 30), going around saying Im 13, really!
Ehehehe, that's if he spends 14 hours a day in the resort! The other 10 are used up eating, teaching, and everything else....
AH! Now I get it, this was the plan from the beginning to get the an AsunaxNegi pairing, she falls in love with him once he is a sophisticated older man who looks twice her age! Devious. >O
Now that you mentioned it, Akamatsu-sama said something about MSN being difficult to turn into a romantic comedy. That sly devil...
Hmmm... Well... I guess why Negi is still LOOKED like a 10y/o... It's because he uses the candy that Chamo gave... Don't know the name... The one they use to look like younger or older...
