Editorial Reviews

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 Master’s 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 student bodies to drive the ghouls from their school. These girls want to prove that they’re best in class, and extra credit is available to the cuties that aren’t afraid of after hours phantom fighting – especially if it means more time with their favorite professor.

You really do get to know their names and remember them.

The animation in this series is very well done, so is the soundtrack and the voice acting.

Very funny series, not for all anime fans but most would like it.

Technically, there's already been an anime series -- "Negima" -- about preteen wizard/schoolteacher Negi Springfield.

But apparently that isn't stopping them from creating another parallel series, rebooting and revamping Ken Akamatsu's bestselling manga into the visually lush, fantastical "Negima!?" (see, the question and exclaimation mark mean it's a different show!). And this series is a vastly different creation -- while it's rarely faithful to the original manga's storylines, it's still a solid fantasy story sprinkled with some fun comic relief. And chupacabras.

Negi has been assigned to a vast all-girls Mahora Academy in Japan -- but things start going wrong before he even starts. Half-asleep student Asuna witnesses a small magical display, and a vampire is attacking students. A vampire who is also his student.

Even worse, the vampire Evangeline and her robotic partner Chachamaru are targeting Negi, since the boy is her only ticket out of a curse that binds her to Mahora. Even worse, her suppressed superpowers come back at the full moon -- and soon Negi's only hope of defeating Evangeline is by forming a Pactio (a magical contract). Asuna is the logical choice since she already knows about his magic, but will the stubborn girl agree before Evangeline's icy magic smashes Mahora?

But there's more trouble when a pair of disguised wizards bring news -- the legendary Star Crystal has been stolen, and it may be related to odd happenings at Mahora. As Negi tries to avoid erminehood, he must deal with a kindly resident ghost, the dangerous Library Island, camping trips with his Pactio partners, and an evil fairy that is attacking the school -- and even transports them to another dimension.

Negima!? is pretty much a brand new anime, but includes the same characters as Negima! (Note: Negima! is Season 1, Negima!? is known as Season 2, though they are entirely different)

Season 1 was based on the manga, where Negi needs to teach at an all girls school to complete his magic training. The whole series seemed to rely on fan service to me, but was also quite funny.

However, this version of Negima is nothing like the manga (after the first 3 episodes). This series relies on complete randomness to be funny. If you don't like randomness, stay away! There is pretty much no fan service in this season, making it much more family friendly and fun, though there is still plenty of romance (including a girl girl one).
There is a story, but its confusing and seems to only be brung up when the writer couldn't think of something random to add.

The characters mostly have the same personalities and traits as the manga/Season 1, though Asuna isn't as smart and has become obsessed with Chupacabras and is often portrayed as being an idiot.

Overall, I loved this season much more than Season 1.
(Though this is just the first part of the Season. I don't know what the last reviewer was complaining about pricewise, its the same price as other anime part 1 sets such as Ouran High School and School Rumble)

First of all, I love the Negima manga series. The U.S. release is now up to volume 20 and it has been a fantastic ride the whole way through. The first anime series was ok. For the most part it followed the stories laid out in the first few volumes of the manga pretty accurately. Then for the final few episodes they created original material to wrap up the series. Overall, it was fun to see a great manga series in animated form with voices and music, but they really only scratched the surface.

This second Negima anime series starts over and pretty much tells its own story. Some might complain because they want to see the Manga better represented, but I see no need for this. I can enjoy the anime series as an alternate storyline, and this one is just all around fun. The animation is fantastic and the characters are well represented. Since it's a new story I get the same sense of wondering what will happen next that I do when reading the manga.

One bit of advice. Going into this series it would help to be familiar either with the manga or the first anime, because this series spends a lot less time explaining things. I would probably be confused if I had just jumped into this series without my previous knowledge of the Negima universe. The creators really seem to assume the viewer already knows thw who's and the what's of it all. So it's not truly a sequel because it starts over, but it's not completely independent from previous versions either.

I look forward to the next DVD release continuing this series, as well as the hopeful eventual release of the live action Negima series.

I bought this anime with a few fears in mind but I have to say it is simply amazing. The Show is ridiculously well animated, it has great humor that isn't forced to vulgarity or sex to make it funny, a deep story line, and unlike a lot of animes everything meshes together very well. The plot starts out similar to the original before bending off into its own little story (and for some reason skips to year 3 after the 3rd episode) and like an above review mentions it does seem to assume you know a lot of things about the series. As I've mentioned before the plot is simply amazing all the characters are really fleshed out and seem so much deeper then they were in the original with a lot of things going on but they all work together very well but now I'm just rambling I guess the bottom line is if you were a fan of the original DEFINITELY buy this.

One more thing DOES ANYONE KNOW WHEN THE SECOND PART COMES OUT THE CLIFF HANGAR AT THE END IS DRIVING ME NUTS.
