Mei Sakura is a character from the Mahou Sensei Negima anime and manga.
Mei is kohai to her senpai, Takane whom she refers to as 'onee-sama'. She is deemed as a skilled Ministra Magi whose artifact is a broomstick. Mei is also a transfer student, sent to study from a North American mage academy before the Mahora Festival Arc. She is a 2nd year middle school student in Mahora Academy, making her a year younger than most of the 3-A student.
In the AWA fics, Mei is a student at the AWA Academy.
Mei has an orange hair tied in pigtails and has brown eyes. She is currently wearing a Mahora School Uniform with blue socks and brown shoes.
Not much is known about her but Mei is a loyal person especially to Takane. Mei gets embarrassed easily especially whenever Negi accidentally strips her naked.
Mei seems to have an elemental magic affinity for fire and is shown to be proficient enough to disarm Kaede and Setsuna at battle. Although in most fights, her true strengths were not demonstrated.
Pactio: Puella Genista - Her pactio artifact, the Favor Purgandi, is a broom that she uses for combat as well as transportation, just as how Negi's does with his staff. It may be similar to the broom that Yue has. One possible power of the broom is to completely to disarm opponents with a stroke, but it is uncertain whether this is due to the broom, or Mei's own magical prowess.
- Mei seems to have a crush on Koutarou Inugami after he saved her from drowning.
