What about Sayo?
wonder if the final arc of Negima is gonna be about Sayo-chan's death or something... I mean.. most of us forgot that she's a ghost and her death wasn't explained or something...
dunno.. just my two cents or something...
I'll be honest and just ask... did this really need a thread?
That out of the way, a lot of the class hasn't had much attention yet if you think about it. It's likely that, should the series continue beyond this stint in Mundus Magicus, that there'll be at least one arc that features Sakurako, Zazie, Sayo, etc.
You took the words out of my mouth.

Sayo should be too.
They should also explain if Negi's class was all planned out or not...
No, not really. Nevertheless, lets see what we can salvage with a title change.

More likely a collection of the children with a relation to magic and maybe a few fillers to fill out the rest of the class and Takahata to keep an informed eye on them (maybe protect them too).
I agree though that it's kinda ridiculous to think that Sayo is the focus of the final arc. There might be a decent story there, but not as interesting or involving as say a half demon, a vampire mage, a scarred girl with a mental block or a princess or two. It's a side story and not end game material.
yeah, i have to agree. though sayo's character has been flushed out a little, i would like to know more. hopefully ken will get to the other classmates as well, but like he said, negima can go on forever but hopefully not.
It's in the first anime. She was a friend of the principal (Konoka's grandpa).

Reason: + Zazie
I thought KA already assigned Zazie for the final arc?
I say Negi's class is planned with some people there by random luck: lets see setsuna and her ouju-sama were planned, chao was planned, chachamaru & eva and nodoka were probably random, sayo was probably planned, Asuna planned, etc.
Chao definitely planned being part of the 2-A class on the same sidetopic it has bugged me why she said that even her was unable to take on class 2a/3a, somehow she foreshadowed Negi's party being made up of 2a/3a students doing some great stuff in the future together
Well anyhow back to topic, I would love to see more of Sayo, I think that the origin given in the show should not be taken as canon, I mean Negima shows stray off too much from the source material
Insert sig here
@Leia: First anime isn't canon... none of the anime series are canon material.
@Quincy80: who's the half-demon?
@CPN: I don't see how you can say Setsuna and Konoka were intended without saying Eva was as well. HOW can Eva not be intentional, she's the fucking Childqueen of Darkness, Tidings of Woe, etc.. You have to remember that Nagi specifically asked the Konoemon to let her into his school, so I don't see her being put under the watchful eye of Nagi's ex-partner as random at all.
And how can Chao be planned? She came from the future under the disguise of being from... everyone else in her class said China. And that part about her not being able to take on everyone from 3-A... she probably meant that she couldn't do anything in the state she was in. If her Cassiopeia 3 were still operational (in other words, if Negi were retarded), then the class wouldn't have been a problem because, as we saw earlier on, two of the strongest people in the class got beat in with a baseball bat.
On top of that, she could have also meant that she couldn't bring herself to actually fight against some of them (Ku and Satsuko, primarily).
