10-year-old Negi Springfield is a wizard-in-training, and needs only to pass one more test in order to become a Master Wizard. Unfortunately, his final task is a bizarre one—to become a English teacher at an all-females boarding school. As soon as he arrives, he completely embarrasses one of his students, Asuna Kagurazaka, and replaces the teacher she loves, which garners her hatred. To make matters worse, Asuna learns that Negi is a wizard, and promises to tell unless he helps her out. But unfortunately, circumstances force them to work together to do many things, from fighting evil wizards to helping the class pass their final exam, with a lot of humor, magic, and romances thrown in.

Before I start this review, take into consideration that when I watched this, I did not read a single chapter of the manga yet. This was also the first anime I was hooked on.

During my last vacation to America, I got bored. So bored that I resorted to waching anime in desperation. When I first heard about Mahou Sensei Negima, I decided to give it a shot and watch it. I was surprised at what I had stumbled upon.

The story was very original. I'd never expect a 10 year old teacher who teaches in an all girl's school. To make things read more

A comedy series full of stupid fun and fan service, for you to enjoy. However this Shounen anime seems to be aimed more at the female demographic, leaving most guys cringing at all the cuteness. ^_^

Negima! is a Magical, Supernatural, Harem, Comedy about 10 year old boy Negi, who has become a teacher at an all girls school. There's one other shocking piece of info about him and that is, he's a Mage (Magician).

Well that's the basic idea of this simple show and what helps it stand out is the shear number of girls (31 in fact), so learning their names are impossible. Even though read more

Negima, also known as Mahou Sensei Negima, Negima Magister Magi Negi and numerous other titles, is based on a long-running manga by Ken Akamatsu, best known for the archetype-setting harem series Love Hina. Love Hina was adapted by Xebec, and subjected to a not-particularly-great adaptation. Negima is almost the same in that respect, except that rather than a not-particularly-great adaptation, here we are presented with an appalling one.

For starters, this series came out several years sooner than it should have done. The manga is, to this day, still running, and promises to be around 40-50 volumes in length by its completion. This, however, was read more

As I started watching this, I was frankly afraid of falling into a pit of lollicon Ecchi with tons of pre teen boobs fallin all over the screen, but I was gladly surprised with a heartwarming comedy about friendship and loyalty.

Story: 8.
I don't give it a higher grade ONLY because you can tell it's unfinished. I mean, it all wounds up in the last episode, but you can tell the story doesn't stop there(that actually led me to the manga , - that continued for several more years after the anime ended - which I started reading after the finale).
So, I think the concept is read more
