Existence of backward TE volume modes which are to be identified as Magnetostatic Wave (MSW) in anisotropic single-negative slab with partly negative permeability tensor component have already been revealed by present authors. In this paper, detailed modal analysis has been carried out for this kind of TE volume modes to find out their novel and peculiar properties. From these numerical results, it has been clarified that dispersion curve of the lowest order mode for thicker slab has a frequency of turning point below which both forward and backward waves can be simultaneously observed and also there is a critical slab thickness for each order of TE volume modes to exist.
