Synopsis

A remake of the Negima anime with its own original story.

Wizard Negi Springfield may be a boy, but he has a man-sized job to do! Fresh from the Academy of Magic, Negi continues his training as an instructor at Mahora Academy in Japan. But before he can get his Masters in magic, the 31 schoolgirls of Class 3-A are gonna keep him up all night cramming for a final exam in will power. Temptation aside, Negi has more on his syllabus than flirting and spells. Darkness is closing in, and Negi is gonna need help from his lovely student bodies to drive the ghouls from their school. These girls want to prove that they're the best in class, and extra credit is available to the cuties that aren't afraid of after-hours phantom fighting!

Negima!? is not to be confused with Mahou Sensei Negima!. They're part of the same universe, but are completely different stories. Negima!? is produced by SHAFT, and their crazy experimental presence is definitely noted in this show.

Story: Negima!? takes a completely different direction from its counterpart, deviating from the manga storyline. The first episode opens up with the final battle between the Thousand Master and Evangeline McDowell. Evangeline gets turned into a loli form and we then start the story with Negi Springfield. Negi starts his teaching career over at an all-girls school. The crazy mischief starts when it's revealed to his students that Negi read more

Story:
The story is great and lots of comedy I guess. The story's plot is good and that I find it interesting. The action contained in this good as well though it could have been better if the battles are much tougher. There are drama parts of this anime that I find can move someone's feelings/emotions.
Even if this anime is great I observed that some segments of the story are very short and lacked of details. It also seems that there are confusing parts in the story but these are explained later on.
All in all, the story is great.

Art:
Generally, the art's well read more

It's not the Negima that the fans of the manga know, it's Negima 2.0 the wacky version.

STORY: This is the result when the studio Shaft, that is known for silly and over the top comedy anime like Pani Poni Dash and Arakawa Under The Bridge, get to do a remake of a story that the fans had already known about and let their imagination go wild.
This is a second attempt at a Negima anime, but this time around things are sillier, more random, and has more action than the first anime with an original story.

The beginning jumps straight into the Evangeline arc of read more

If you liked Pani Poni Dash, you don't even have to bother reading the rest, you'll likely like the show. If your a fan of Negima the manga, your probably not gonna like this and you might want to delete any episodes you have on your harddrive (I mean return the dvd you bought, of course that's what I meant). I walk a middle ground here as a fan of both of those series, however, it did get boring for me as it continued on.

Now, if you think you knew the characters from the series, you'll only be half right (for the most part) read more

Recommendations

Both of these come from the same studio, so they have a lot in common... most noticeably the weird frog and the quirky sense of humor. It borders on being ridiculous, so I don't suppose it's for everybody, but if this sort of humor suits you then you're in for a treat.
Both shows are from the same studio, SHAFT, so they share quite a bit in terms of humour and style. Zetsubou Sensei has much more dark humor though, and a more distinct artistic style (in some ways similar to xxxHOLIC). Negima is a bit more random, and focuses a little more on magic and jumbled relationships and such.
Both have magic, male main characters that have a lot of women that fall in love with them, a good bit of comedy mixed in, and make you feel a bit ease while watching it. Neither take them selves to seriously and are just fun to watch. Both have action, comedy, and romance.
They're both funny, and are about the problems you have to put up with in an all-girls high school!
Also, Freddy Crab likes how both animes have short-skirted girls in them ( He sighs happily)
Both take place in an alternate world where magic exists. The male lead and the heroines has special powers, that over time get stronger. Also sacrifice is a strong theme too.
reportRecommended by Jmac - Add to favorites
An adorable kid with strong powers turns up and ends up helping/having to give his new friends/students powers. Both have action and comedy and center around some sort of magic. The main character loves his friends/students, is very selfless, and likes to smile.
