As class president of class 2-A, Ayaka Yukihiro is always informed on what’s happening around the school at all times, except if has to do with Negi being a wizard. She has a short fuse when it comes to dealing with Asuna. One would say that Asuna and Ayaka are number one rivals, enemies, adversaries, etc... She lives in a huge mansion off campus when spring and summer time comes around. She is crazy about Negi, and wants to impress, and be with him at all times (another reason she hates Asuna). You may not be able to see it in her eyes because she hides it so well but Ayaka has on of the saddest pasts in the manga (her baby brother died at birth). But she tries not to let that get to her and she goes on with her daily life.
She comes from a wealthy family, and is the class representative. As such, she is frequently referred to by other classmates as "Iincho," (Japanese: 'class representative') She is one of the top ranking students in the school, and she is well trained in martial arts. She has a heated rivalry with Asuna that often causes conflict between the two, although the rivalry is in truth a cover for a caring friendship. She is obsessed with Negi, claiming that he needs a mother figure, and is the most vocal in her class in her open desire to "claim" him. However, most of her classmates feel that it is an unhealthy obsession, as Negi is only 10 years old, but she seems to have no qualms at all about his age. She later reveals that she would have had a younger brother, had he not died during childbirth, and she greatly wishes for that sort of connection, although her obsession with Negi still appears to be romantically based. She is voiced by Junko Minagawa in the anime adaptation, and by Laura Bailey in the English adaptation. She is portrayed by Rei ?tsuka in the live action adaptation.
