I'm actually gonna miss Shaft, the fight scenes they did for the OVA's were real nice. I like JC but I don't really have much knowledge of their action based adaptions. Index and Shana being the only 2 that come straight to mind and I hope UQ is nothing like their style as nice as some scenes were in Railgun, UQ/Negima fight scenes should be far more fast pace.


as much as i dislike anime for the first 2, dungeon deai, taboo tattoo, and especially WCW action was LIT AF...

if you didn't want to answer my question you shouldn't have replied at all.

Have you read my post fully? I already answered your question in my previous post but I want to ask why are you care about the harem stuff?
I asked whether it was a harem or not I didn't say anything about the fanservice. Btw I hate harems I asked because in the picture the mc is surrounded by girls.

Well Touta is voiced by Yuka Takakura in the anime, I was always through he will be voiced by Sōichirō Hoshi because his voice is suiting Touta's personality in my opinion, still hope Mrs. Takakura can did a good voice to him and the old cast's voice actor like Rina Satou can returned to voice Negi and others. Hoping Kuromaru was voiced by Yū Kobayashi (Setsuna's voice actor).

Just realised I haven't read the synopsis for UQ Holder, how old is Negi in this series xD I'll find that out once I get onto UQ Holder, guess I need to read Negima a bit more often.

Why are you care about the harem and fan-service stuff? Only in the later story have those kind of things, in the first three arc was just a action/shounen show.

HYPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After what they did with the Negima anime, I was sad, so hopefully this makes up for it.

Looks like a generic forgettable harem from the mid-2000s

Wooot, this gets me hyped regardless even though I don't really like UQ Holder. Hopefully Mahou Sensei Negima gets a real chance at having a great anime adaptation.

Also hope that this would give action anime a real kickoff, I haven't really spotted any great action anime in a while.

Takes place in the same universe, also pretty much a sequel to Negima but with different main characters this time around, though many previous characters will make appearances later in UQ Holder's story. Takes place a bit over 70 years after the events of Negima(manga), iirc? If you consider starting Negima, I would recommend reading the manga over watching the TV anime seasons since they kinda do their own thing partway through.
So it's kinda like Jojo's Bizarre Adventure with the generation thing?


Yes

With Children of the Whales also airing during Fall and with how this key visual looks here, I think it's obvious which show JC Staff is putting more effort into.
Which is a shame because UQ Holder really needs some good animation for the fights it has. But we'll see.
I really doubt they'd do two 2 cours shows though.

i put it on hold since tho because that sound bullshit excuse... was expecting the sequel would explain someting but author only keep teasing even add it to more drama that piss me off... i honestly waiting for anime to make sure i am continueing this or just drop it because anime usually easier to binge...

damn, it ended 5 years ago already... it make me surprised how many things i forgotton from this series.... i felt old...
I dropped the manga when
takeover UQ holder as a whole completely overshadowing touta and UQ holder characters.Seems like author is very confused what does he want to do with UQ Holder as a whole.



fuuuuck...

SO EXCITED FOR THIS
KEN AKAMATSU'S MANGA ARE LIKE MY FAVORITES
too bad all their adaptions are trash...
I hope this doesn't get their treatments and get a shitty anime original story/ending.
The shaft OVA's for Negima were great, but both the main adaptions were trash.

No high hopes for the anime series, but excitement none the less... I would like a longer series though, and I do hope the action scenes are good.
Fights later in the series look great and have a great feel of epicness to it, I hope that goes well!

It looks more like another timeline from the ending of negima so I think Negi ended with no one..

Tried checking beforehand but your list's private, sorry :P

Hmm... Don't think they ever said in Negima. Even in UQ Holder up to the current chapter, there's been no clear answer as to who he ended up with. I'm just assuming that'll be explained later, hopefully lol

I really hope this will be a 2 cour. A 1 cour adaptation would just be a waste of time.

Mar 18, 12:48 AM by Stark700

Think this kinda needs to be a 2-cour to be worthwhile. Takes quite a while before it really gets good tbh
