UQ Holder's WMG page. The home to many crazy theories to come as the manga develops.
Touta's parents were not his true parents Or they overused Time-manipulating Training RoomsThe dates and ages provided, do not add up. Touta's mother was born in 2050 and his father in 2040. Given that they died in 2064 that would make them 14 and 24 respectively at the time of their death. Therefore they either were not his real parents and only cared for him or made Extensive use of those Time-Manipulating Training Rooms Eva used to train Negi.
Touta's parents did not die in a car accidentIt is too similar to the fake story of the death of Harry Potter's parents! Also the fact that Touta has no memories of them - but they can have been sealed.
Shinobu Yuuki and Touta eventually have a child, and that child is Chao from Negima.Look. Tell me that doesn't look like Chao. And, assuming Negi is in fact Touta's grandfather, Chao is the great-granddaughter of Negi. As Corollary to this, I also believe that Shinobu is the child of Fate/Tertium, or, more likely, grandchild.
Touta is not actually related to NegiWhen Touta visits the graves of his parents, he refers to Negi as "Ji-chan," which does not always necessarily mean "Grandfather." In the first chapter of Negima, Negi himself calls the Headmaster of his magic class the same thing, which led to speculation that the Headmaster was actually his grandfather, which he is not.
Touta inherited Magic Cancel from somewhere.He's incompatible with the magical apps in the first chapter, and he could have easily inherited the magic either through Negi (it's a royal ability, and Negi's an Ostian prince) or through Asuna (we know nothing about Touta's other grandparents after all). On a meta level, it would also be a nice contrast with Negi to have a protagonist who uses Anti-Magic rather than being an ubermage.
Negi isn't actually deadGiven that Negi was supposedly immortal at the end of Negima (though not invulnerable), it's entirely possible that he's still around, but faked his death for some reason. Part of Eva's motivation may be to track him down.
In the end, it's Yotsubawho becames Negi's spouse She's arguably the nicest girl from all girls in 3-A, and the ones who didn't act all-crazy in chasing him. Naturally, this will attract him. Give her a couple of years and then.... On the same note, it was noted that Touta is a good cook, as well as Chao. Surely, all that skills has to come out from somewhere....
Touta is related to TakamichiTakamchi's thing was that he couldn't incant spells, leading him to learning the Muon-ken and the Kanka-Hou, techniques that require power but don't require incantations. Touta also cannot incant spells. Maybe this is a hereditary disability, and it was passed down.
Touta will learn ShinmeiryuHis surname is Konoe and he's a dab hand with a sword. 2 + 2 = ...
Touta's friends from the first chapter will be the adult male characters in the character spreadThe theme of the manga is supposedly immortality. Touta is now immortal. Is it really weird to think that there might be a timeskip, Touta looks the same, and his friends have grown older?
Shiraishi is FateShiraishi's name, 白石, literally translates to "White Stone." Fate is the Averruncus of Earth, and has white hair.
UQ Holder's setting is Mars.Clue Evangeline is said to come from the top of the tower, orbital elevator. Another we see the Orbital Elevator of New Tokyo and there is no World Tree in sight. According to Mana's epilogue Mars would be embroiled in a war for independence. UQ Holder being more Shounen genre and darker could takcle this war.
UQ Holder Timeline is the timeline where Asuna never went back in time.In the True Ending of Negima Timeline C as illustrated by Chao magic was disclosed a few years later. As a consequence magic crime increased after two years of disclosure. Which Negi and his Ministra had to handle. In the UQ Holder timeline or Timeline B magic was only disclosed 10 years earlier. The current year being 2086. Normal people can use Magic Apps for magic but each slot cost half a million Yen. As Evangeline aka Yukihime said as it gets cheaper the chances of magic crimes also increases. The factor for these changes is Asuna's presence. If she goes back in time when she left Mahora with her position as princess of Ostia she can politically push for a disclosure of the existence of magic. If Asuna didn't return magic disclosure would be delayed for 70 years due to the problems to Negi's plan of integrating Old World Earth and Magic World societies. This problem resulted to the Mars independence war in both timelines. Which Mana participated.
A dead member of 3-A will make an appearanceThe only question of course is whether or not it's Sayo...
Eva did kill Touta's parents
Kuromaru is possibly Setsuna's descendant.Having the same hairstyle and same swordsmanship as Setsuna counts. And apparently this might translate into a case of Ho Yay if ever he ends up joining Touta, just like the relationship between her and Touta's (presumed) ancestor, Konoka.
Kuromaru is from the same Crow Race (Uzoku) clan as Setsuna.Kuromaru as in Crow as the pun on his/her name. From what we know of Setsuna she was ostracized by her clan for being a half-human hybrid and her wings are white instead of black. White wings to Setsuna's clan are bad luck. Eva implies Setsuna dyes her hair and it is naturally white. Uzoku are described to have beaks and white hair. Well Kuromaru's clan has bird masks and they have white hair. Much like Setsuna Kuromaru is being ostracized by the clan for being an oddity. In Kuromaru's case he/she is an immortal. Which why Kuromaru's brother sent him/her on an impossible mission so Kuromaru will die. Hoping Evangeline will kill Kuromaru and rid of a person that the clan prejudiced against. Jossed: Kuromaru is from the Yatagarasu tribe, not the tengu, and thus does not have albinism like setsuna.
Kuromaru is actually a girl.Let's face it, there's a proverbial million and one ways Akamatsu could've written Kuromaru's introduction without making all his readers suspect as much. In fact, he's even expecting us to think this, meaning the eventual Reveal will be about something more than just this.
Kuromaru is related to ToutaShinmeiryu has ties to the Konoe family, after all, and the most prominent non-Konoe non-Aoyama practitioner we have, Setsuna, was highly suggested to have married Konoka, the Konoe main character from Negima- and magic means they might have found a way to reproduce without a male involved.
Eva sealed or erased Touta's memoriesEvangeline in UQ Holder has a parallel with Takamichi Takahata of taking care of a VIP with amnesia. If indeed Touta is Negi's descendant then he is by blood a prince of the Ostia monarchy like Asuna. Touta is also of the prestigious Konoe family who are one of the five families of the Fujiwara clan of Japan, where the brides of Japan's emperor comes from. So she may have done that in order to protect him and to let him have a normal life.
Living members of class 3-A:
Touta is descended from Kotaro and NatsumiJust look at that face and tell me he doesn't look like Kotaro.
Touta will eventually forced to use Age-Deceiving Pill to conceal the fact that he stopped agingClaim that you're late bloomer probably won't work very long, so he might resort to Age-Pill sooner or later.
In chapter 6, Evangeline's age pill effect will worn off after she is stripped of her towel.Jossed. At the start of chapter six, Evangeline is still shown with her "Yukihime" body after Touta strips the towel off of her.
Kuroumaru is a FTM TranssexualThe suspicion being raised is enough to present the possibility, at least, that Kuroumaru is a biological woman who feels that he should be a man. According to Karin, Kuro is indeed biologically female, but continues to identify as male nonetheless. It could just be a Gender Bender, though, so we can't call it confirmed yet.
Eva is wearing a swimsuitAs of chapter 5, she tasked Touta with fighting her with the promise that, if he could rip off her towel, he would see her naked. The chapter ended as soon as he managed this. What if Akamatsu is screwing with us, and she has a swimsuit on?
There will be a user of Magia Erebea later onWith all these immortals around, why not?
Eva has gotten weakerKuroumaru and Touta noted that Yukihime seems strong, but not top-of-the-world strong. Kuroumaru's clan claimed that Eva is a shadow of her former self. With that logic, they sent Kuromaru for his task, claiming that if he couldn't kill her while she was in such a state, he had no home to return to. Eva did not mention herself when she was talking about the strength of Karin's immortality as well as Touta's immortality, even though Touta is considered part of her "kin."
Yukihime is not really EvaShe can be a projection (she is able to do it), a puppet (idem) or a very advanced android imbued with a part of the soul and of the power of the real Evangeline (Magic and Magitek; her present personality appears have some sides similars to Chachamaru, too). This will be the Reveal at a certain point.
Kuroumaru's immortality has some sort of limitationWhereas Touta can only regrow limbs that are completely destroyed, Kuroumaru has a super regenerative ability that allows him to regrow limbs once they are merely detached from his body. That makes it sound like Kuroumaru's immorality has only benefits over that of Touta's. However, Eva explicitly stated that if mankind goes extinct, Karin and Touta would be the only ones alive at that point. So maybe Kuroumaru's immortality doesn't prevent aging, or he can't regenerate his head if it's cut off, or the speed of his regeneration slows down with overuse, or something.
Mikan is the granddaughter of MisoraJust getting it out there now.
UQ Holder takes place in Negima's original timelineNot the one at the beginning of the story, but the one that Chao comes from. Take a look at the shots of class 3-A, Chao doesn't appear at all. It's also the only timeline where magic would have been revealed as late as it was.
Touta is a Decoy Protagonist or the manga will soon undergo a major Plot/Genre/Difficulty changeI mean really, Akamatsu is a reasonably intelligent manga writer who has multiple successful series under his belt, so suddenly increasing Touta's skill and power to the level that Negi didn't achieve until most of the way through his series doesn't make sense, unless he's planning on changing something major that requires Touta to be overpowered early on, or he's planning to increase the general power level of all future opponents, making this training necessary simply for Touta not to die instantly.
Kuromaru will become a boy but still wind up romantically involved with ToutaIt wouldn't be above Akamatsu to put in some Ho Yay, it's not like Fate shied away from it with Negi, and Setsuna and Konoka had it going all over the place, besides, it'd be a nice change of pace.
Touta has inherited the Magia ErebeaWhen Touta awakens from the cross-binding spell, his arms are covered in a shadowy black magic that resemble Negi's demonic forms arms when he was overtaken by the Magia Erebea completely. The blind assassin, when he sees Touta's arms, also makes a vague comment about "Magia", lending a small credence to this theory.
Touta will make a "World of Cardboard" Speech similar yet different to the one that Tohno Shiki makes at some point.After learning what immortality truly means at some point he will meet a villain/antagonist who wants to gain Immortallity. Touta will let loose a speech similar to the one Tohno makes but with immortality instead of death.
I'll show you. This is what it means to live forever.
Keitaro is a member of UQ HolderIn later chapters of Love Hina, they joked that he was immortal. What if it wasn't a joke?
