Format: Paperback
I wanted to read at least two volumes of this manga before I reviewed it. It's based mostly on the anime of which I've only seen a little bit though I do follow the original Negima manga.

To put it simply, if you're a fan of either the Negima manga or anime this is going to feel like a retread. It's not that writer/artist Takuya Fujima isn't talented. The art is good if rather heavy on the moe, there's a lot of details and the action is fairly well done. The problem is that most of what's good in this series is the stuff that was good in Ken Akumatsu's work and it's just carried over here. Even the art, which does have its own style, clearly grabs a lot of pages out of Akamatsu's book. And while Fujima is a skilled artist he's just not on the same level as the man whose work he's drawing upon.

Now with that said there were some really good points to this volume as well. Sayo gets some real character development which is really nice as I think she's one of the most interesting girls who is stuck in the background most of the time. Anya playing a bigger role in things is also nice as she serves as another counterbalance to Asuna. We also get plenty of yuritastic Setsuna/Konoka action.

Of course, not really being up on the anime I don't honestly know how much of this is Fujima and how much of this is just lifted from the anime. That was always nagging in the back of my mind and really cut into my ability to enjoy things.

With all that said I'm still going to give this book three stars. Yeah, it's a big retread. But it's a well done retread and if you're looking for an easy in to all things Negima this book is a good place to start. If you're already a fan I'd suggest just sticking to the original manga.
