Original appearance:

Mahou Sensei Negima! manga Chapter 1: The Child Teacher is a mage

Kazumi Asakura is the class reporter with a camera always on hand. She likes to get the inside scoop on everything that goes on, and is the paparazzi of Class 3-A (formerly 2-A). Kazumi won't stop at anything until she gets her scoop.


She was one of the first girls in the class to learn Negi's secret, which she discovered accidentally in Kyoto while investigating the rumor that someone had proclaimed her love to Negi. At first, she intended to reveal Negi's secret to the world, but she was persuaded to keep quiet about it. She frequently elected herself as Negi's manager when it came to scheduling time with him (even though Chamo, Negi's familiar, is actually the one pulling the strings).

She is also friends with Sayo, a ghost girl that follows Kazumi (or rather haunting her), and she's one of the few people who can see the ghost since Sayo sat next to her for so long. Thus, Kazumi was the first person that contacted Sayo. She later obtained a doll from Evangeline for Sayo to possess, so that she can leave the school grounds.

Role in RakenzarnEdit

Kazumi makes her official appearance in Chapter 6: Bad Blood, alongside some of her friends and child teacher Negi. She also has a romantic relationship with Axel Akamura.

When the plague cursed Rakenzarn, Negi disappeared mysteriously. Axel volunteered to find him and bring him back home safely. However, Axel hadn't returned for too long, which worried Kazumi greatly. This prompted everyone in Class 3-A to go and find them. They separated into groups and spread throughout Rakenzarn. Kazumi's group consists of Asuna, Konoka, Setsuna, Nodoka, and Makie.

They arrived at Riveras Village where they happen to come across Kyuu and the brigade. Axel happens to be with them, much to their surprise. When they finally reunited, she slaps Axel by the face followed by a sudden embrace, angrily shouting that she's really worried about his safety. They eventually make up.

With the brigade's help, they eventually rescued Negi and meet the elves. Ever since, she and her friends stay by the brigade's side.

While some view her as 'one of those crazy paparazzis,' they eventually chang their minds when Kazumi proves to be a very valuable ally. She actively assists Kyuu through his journey, giving him important information and interesting assets, such as the history about their foes and potential allies and how to recruit them. She's hoping that by aiding the brigade, she'll be able to get some scoops.
