Student Number 11: Madoka Kugimiya (釘宮 円, Kugimiya Madoka)
She is the serious one of the three cheerleaders in the class. She makes sure that the other cheerleaders (especially Sakurako) do not get into any trouble. She likes gyūdon and silver accessories and generally into Western music (currently is a fan of Avril Lavigne from notes), but hates playboys and is mildly obsessed with her husky voice. Her surname is usually the target of nickname making (which Madoka does not like) from her classmates; such as "Kugimi".
During the school festival, she develops a small crush on the teenage form of Kotarou. She has been shown to be very protective of her friends, and especially for Ako, whom she encourages to be more confident. Ironically, she almost got Ako shot when she pressed the shy girl to confess her love for "Nagi" in front of an audience during the Live Mahora Concert. Luckily for Ako, and much to Madoka's consternation, she only asked for Nagi's e-mail address. Madoka also takes part in the "Mars vs. Mages" game and is among the first "casualties" (meaning her clothes were blasted off), when she is hit by the robots' strip beams.
She, like the rest of the class, assists Negi in saving Nagi and defeating the Mage of the Beginning. A firm goverment official who worked at elevator customs. Her job is quite tough, thanks to the development of Mahora, she is happy that she can have fun without traveling far. Her eyes are drawn to anyone black-haired and dog-eared.
