This is the Negima Universe, I'm absolutely sure another similar time travelling device is somewhere in the works and don't forget Chao did promise she was going to return to Negi. If you strictly go under the belief that Chao is the only one that has a Cassopeia or other menas to travel time. Then Chao will come back with the high possiblity that a cassopeia is used. How would she fuel the Cassopeia's with the power needed to travel I really wouldn't know....
Time sync does sound really interesting for a pactio method. For some reason though I kinda of get the feeling Ken would be sticking with the Kiss Pactio. I don't know maybe as an Ideal tool of fansevice for both men and women. And I wonder if mages have already come up with a cure for aids and HIV....
well although its a bland fact wasnt konoka's dad also "attached" to nagi because he was in the nagi etc pics and so was takamichi and his teacher dude
Just a reminder, Chao originally came to this time line of Negima Via the World Tree of her time in the future, she returned home using the power of the World Tree again after the big battle of the last chapters...
She created the Cassiopeia in the two years in 2-A class along with the engineering girl... And the Cassiopeia requires a large amount of Magical Power to time skip back further then a Day...
Negi used the power of the weakened World Tree a week after the Festival (Chao's little cheat when they used the resort to recover...) even then did Negi spend a couple of Hours on his back in the Library...
Also Yes Konoka's Dad is a partner of Nagi, everyone in that photo Negi got on the Kyoto trip, bar the kid, (Takamichi most likely) is Nagi's partner...
It has never been stated the Takamichi became one of Nagi's Partners either...
Yeah Most likely Ken will stick with the Kissing Pactio mainly because he is himself, He like to have the Boy Kissing Girl thing stay, look at Love Hina...
Time Sync is most likely my creation by the by, some other way for the Same Sex Pactio to happen without the Kissing or Blood Swapping...
first off the kid is not takamichi cuz he had trouble with using kanka therefore there is no way that he is the kid. second it was never stated that konka's dad was a partner of nagi, only best friends. and what do you mean that ken akumatsu likes boys kissing girls, i don't know how that is related to this topic where we are suppose to put up theories on nagi.
Please read the manga carefully.
It IS stated that Konoka's father is a comrade of Nagi, if you look at page 14 of chapter 53, he said "These were the Thousand Master's Comrades-in-arms." and in smaller font "The one in black is me."
yes, comrades-in-arms not partners. i don't know where comrades-in-arms suddenly became partners. why don't you read the manga carefully cuz i don't see partners in there anywhere.
Yeah, comrade in arms doesnt spell pactio partner to me either. But the Jap to Eng translations? Who knows? The implication of a bishi pactio-partnered mage team may appeal to the female fans.
I also have to disagree with the whole Adult Negi time travel thing. I hate it when people cant stop comparing HP and MSN especially this 'theory'. Ok lets get this straight. Harry Potter timetrips back to where he got attacked by Dementors hoping to catch a glimpse of his father. He was WAITING for the event to happen until he realised that he was the intented rescuer.
Now queue to Negi: Why would he (as an adult) go back to when his village got attacked? To catch a glimpse of his father? Would suddenly realising that he was 'that Nagi' prepare him to remark to 10y.o Negi "So you're Negi?......you've grown" and hand over his staff to him like a real father would after not seeing the son in so many years? If you say this is subterfuge, 'Nagi' could just easily have said "I am your father"; a ten year old who has been pining for his father for so long would need no more words to believe 'Nagi' imediately.
Suppose you counter with adult Negi having planned all this. Who confirmed that 'Nagi' who saved the village was not really Nagi '1000 mage'? The real Nagi himself? If Negi were to finally find his father and confirmed that 'Nagi' who saved the village was not his father, who in their right mind would think:" Oh jeez, then that must be ME, I must make a time watch and go save myself"? More likely he would be trying to confirm whether Nagi's lying, but making a time watch to save himself in the past would probably be the last thing on his mind. (even if he did, refer back to last paragraph)
Suppose someone did know adult Negi would have to time travel to save himself. Who would he/she be and what purpose for telling Negi? Unless anyone can answer that with a definite (not another theory), quit palming out this dumb time travel theory just because you read something 'like that' in another novel whose only real similarity is a 10 y.o wizard.
that and it wouldn't explain where the staff came from.
My theory may be fragile, but somehow I think Negi is actually Nagi. Just the theory, but maybe something happen and Nagi was turn into a baby. His relative knew about it but covering it by saying that Negi is Nagi's son. The Nagi that rescued Negi may be some kind of guardian spirit or the left magic power that Nagi put into his staff, to watch over Negi.

Though I do not possess volume 1 of the manga... and someone else will hopefully back me up on this finding with wikipedia, I do acknowledge the fact that wikipedia isn't always reliable. You have to admit the influence from Harry potter is strong. Yes there are great many key differences, the plot of the two being a huge one. And there are more similarities between the two characters then just the both being wizards or mages at a young age. both are British, both are basically orphans, and both had tragedy strike their lives at a younger age,and both have proven to be extraordinarily diligent in their own right. As one could see, you'll have a hard time telling people not to compare the characters. Just the way it is I guess.
Also as for the whole "Just another theory thing". You might want to take a closer look at the title of this thread. It's a list of theories. as for my original theory I'm still sticking by it... and if it's proven wrong during the run of the series more power to all of you who've voted against it.
Notice the how similar the facial features of Nagi and Negi are. I belive even Asuna would even mistaken an Adult Negi for an Adult Nagi. She even comapred the two during their little "Practice date" chapter when Negi used those age deception pills. Again this is all theory and speculation. Try no to take it to harshly.
