Mahou Sensei Negima verison >>>>>> X 1000 >>>>> Negima?!

By SO many levels.
I watched Negima?! for 10 minutes before I dropped it.



Anyways.
I'll watch, though. But I'll be annoyed is they do skip the Mahora Festival.

I don't really read manga unless I reeeeally like a series. Negima isn't that important to me. I don't care for lolis or shouta alike. 10yo kid in ecchi situations with a bunch of girls... meh. =p Was fine as a single anime run, but I don't care nearly enough about it to bother with the manga. Only two series have ever made me go buy the manga, and only a couple more have encouraged me to read scanlations.
Haha well if you don't want to read about a 10 year old kid in ecchi situations, you might not like the manga anyway. I find the manga to be wayyyy better than the anime, though; lots more enjoyable.

Isn't one remake already bad enough?
I meant for them to remake it so that it does the manga justice. Both anime series don't even come close to manga in terms of entertainment.

Negima is not the sequel of Mahou Sensei Negima, its a messed up spin off with no real plot and only randomness.
Just watch Mahou Sensei Negima and that is enough!


I know. That's why it sucked. I enjoyed Mahou Sensei Negima, until the last 2-3 eps (stupid last arc) and was hoping Negima?! would be a continuation of more of the good stuff, but instead is an alternative version, which I hate on general principle, not to mention they changed some stuff like the heterochromia that I liked in the first one. Whether it's manga canon or not I don't care, but I liked the first series and the second was terrible.


Negima!? is not the sequel its adaptation from the manga called Negima Neo!
(i did the same mistake, i thought it was a different version)
And i agree with the ending, they rushed to finish it, like the Claymore anime!

Basicaly we agree that the first one was better than the second one :P
P.S. chapter 207 and 208 of Mahou Sensei Negima manga is out!!! It better than the anime!

why don't they do Mahora Festival.......

Hm..... Interesting. I guess I will have to fnish Negima! before looking more into this. So from these posts, peope say that Negima!? is bad? I guess I will have to watch it and decide that for myself.

Another Negima so I'll be watching it no matter what! I hope this'll be better than past series.

Whats the chances of Del ray doing this part?

Bugger all is my opinion!

With Mahora releasing Negima!? 21 my hope has been renewed and I welcome these OVAs.

And seeing as I critique animation over everything else, I can't even start Mahou Sensei Negima. Their hair and bodies just look like crap.

Which is why I love Negima!?. While it doesn't follow the manga's storyline, it has decent animation (Setsuna's armor pactio was awesome shit) and overall good humor. People need to stop bitching about it geez.

More Nodoka..... More Haruna.... More Chisame....... it will rock!!

Now as i think about it.... it's not a April Fools Day joke.... right?

Both first and second series suck. I won't be watching this.

I´d prefer they just start again from chapter one and go through the whole manga again, I liked the Negima!?-graphic; is there even a need to say that it looked way better than the first series? lol

Well even an OVA is nice for now, I´ll make sure to watch it^^


why not just make a season two of the first one? The first series pretty much followed the manga for the most part. They could easily make a second season that follows the manga.


Alas, yet it will probably never happen...

Wait it actually might.

I still got to finish negima!? I was thinking about picking up the complete boxset at Best Buy. Although I was disappointed that there wasn't any ecchi.
