- "I think you should treasure those feelings and let them grow."
- —Akira Okouchi
Akira Okouchi (大河内 アキラ, Ōkōchi Akira) is a character from the series Negima!: Magister Negi Magi by Ken Akamatsu and a protagonist in Kuro Arashi: The Black Storm. The 6th student on the class 3-A roster, she is a tall, athletic, and very quiet girl in the Swimming Club. She is so good at swimming that the Mahora High School Swimming Club is already looking to recruit her.
Akira is one of the most mature students in the class. She cares a lot for her friends, but knows what is right and wrong, such as when Yuuna Akashi and Haruna Saotome steal Negi Springfield's ring and play around with it, which she doesn't take very well. While seeing Negi as a 10-year-old boy like the others, she respects him for his will and tries to help him in any way she can.

Akira also participates in the Mars vs. Mages battle, fighting alongside her friends using a staff that was oddly reminiscent of a gravity hammer. She exhibited an ability to adapt and think quickly, reacting faster than even Yuuna to destroy a droid that was threatening the other girl. Later, she defeated a number of droids very quickly using a combination attack that included an aerial attack, to the astonishment of her classmates fighting around her. Even she was awed with what she had done, wondering whether it was some affect of the weapon she had chosen or a hidden natural talent that allowed her to do those things.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
- Physical Ability: Akira has demonstrated great speed and agility as an ability when the girls pulled a prank on Negi that went too far. This allowed her to easily catch up with Misora who was using her artifact to increase her speed and defeat her. Akira also exhibts great ability in swiming, being both agile and powerful in the water. It is shown that even the High School at Mahora is looking to recruit her due to her skill.
