Mana Tatsumiya is a character from the Mahou Sensei Negima anime and manga.

Mana is the eighteenth student in Negi's class, and is the daughter of the Tatsumiya Shrine on the Mahora academy grounds.

In the AWA fics, Mana is a student at the AWA Academy.

Appearance

Mana is a tall, teenage girl with a waist-length black hair and has hazel eyes. She usually wears her Mahora Academy uniform.

Personality

She has knowledge of magic even before Negi Springfieldarrived. She is not what one describes as sociable, since she keeps to herself most of the time and does not engage in conversation. She is also a mercenary, and mostly takes on contracts that pertain to hunting/destroying/exorcising demons and ghosts but will take on any job as long as she is paid well (she employs guns with spellbreaker bullets as her tool of exorcism). Her assignment during the Mahora Festival was to prevent confessions of love from occurring, although Chao also employed her during the Mahora Fighting Tournament. When on the job, she is extremely serious and straightforward, which at times can make her seem cold-hearted and quite frightening. She discovered Negi's secret when she helped rescue Konoka at Kyoto. She is also in the Biathlon club, as her apparent crush is the club's captain. Mana has the third largest breasts in class, and is the tallest girl. As such, she (and Kaede) are often mistaken for being older than middle school students. 

Abilities

Demon Eye - This allows Mana to see demons and spirits, though she did not notice Sayo until much later.

Marksmanship- Mana has incredible accuracy as shown throughout the series. She is capable of shooting various students in the head in order to prevent them from confessing during the Mahora Festival with a sniper rifle in a time-span of seconds. She is shown to be very efficient with guns, rifles and other armed weapons, as well as the use of coins as projectiles.

Magical Power- At first, it was unclear whether Mana's magical power is innate or due to her former contract. During her battle with Poyo Rainyday at the Gravekeeper's Palace, it was revealed that Mana has half demonfolk blood which is the source of her power.

Rakansen- A type of Chinese hidden weapon, basically throwing of the coins. Although a simple technique of throwing coins can be found everywhere, it is considered useful in combat. Mana has been shown to use this technique against Ku Fei during the Mahora Festival, due to the rules of the martial arts tournament. She fires them like a machine gun.

Guns- Mana owns and carries many varieties of guns. Guns she has used until now are listed in Mana's Bullets.

Ikuudansou (Alternate Dimensional Ammo Storage)- This magic allows mana to store her ammo and various guns in her own dimension.

Trivia

  • According to her character design notes in Volume 6, Mana is half-Puerto Rican, half-Japanese. It also states her name as Ryū-gū Mana (where the kanji is the same as Tatsu-miya Mana).
  • She had a pactio contract with Kouki T.(?) until he died
  • According to her epilogue in chapter 355, she was still alive during the 22nd century. This might be because of her half-demonfolk blood.
  • She later reapears in the Negima sequel UQ Holder and acts there as stand-in principal for the Mahou school.
