Special Edition Covers

In the Japanese publication of Negima! Volume 25, there were two covers made. One is similar in design that was used for the US publication. The second cover was an alternate addition where the cover image was decidedly more "ecchi" in nature (seen right). These alternate covers were promoted as a "special edition" and were sold with a DVD of the Negima! "Negi Magi - Ala Alba" anime.
