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 afterhours phantom fighting – especially if it means more time with their favorite professor.

Firstly, ignore all the talk about "temptation," in the synopsis; the series is quite wholesome. Beyond a couple of schoolgirl crushes, there is no sexual content in the video at all. It is a magical adventure series, and it does that very well indeed.
Only one thing kept me from giving this series the five stars it would otherwise have earned, the presence of my least favorite thing in anime, the comic pages, or anywhere else: talking animals. Aside from the ferret who seems to be channeling Joan Rivers, there is a frog and a cat, though the only way to tell with the latter two is that they say so. These animals add nothing to the show, and could easily have been omitted.
Now for the good stuff. Somehow the writers managed to give each of the 31 students her own personality, something some script-writers can't manage with even four or fives characters. Character development happens mainly with the ten or twelve main students, but even this is a monumental achievement. The story itself, moves right along with elements of mystery and intrigue, and the end of each episode had me impatiently scene-skipping to the start of the next. One warning to parents: there are scary elements which probably wouldn't be suitable for younger children.
You can't tell a book by its cover, and you can say the same for some plot synopses, apparently.
It is not as much ecchi as the original, but it fits so incredibly well with small children.
