Editorial Reviews

Review

- "Highly recommended, not just because it's another fine effort from Ken Akamatsu, but also because of the inspired translation and excellent handling of sound effects." --"NewType" magazine
- "Filled with the slapstick fan service and romantic comedy elements which have made "Love Hina" such a hit. --ICV2.com (comics industry website/newsletter)

By Zack Davisson HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 14, 2004
Format: Paperback
This second volume in Ken Akamatsu's "Magister Negi Magi" finds Negi Springfield and his wacky all-girl students off on a quest to find a magic book in the Mahora school's Library Island, an enormous maze littered with traps, giant metal golems and other very unlibrary-like things. If they can find the magic book, and the girls can manage to not place at the bottom of all the classes, Negi can get granted full-teacher status. It should be no problem, because leading the way are members of the Library Island Explorers club. What could go wrong?

Additional stories in volume 2 feature single adventures with a few students, including Chisame Hasegawa, a girl who can't stand Negi or her classmates, but lives a secret life as an internet pin-up cosplay girl, the cute twins Fuka and Fumika Narutaki, who take Negi on a tour around the vast school grounds, and Class representative Ayaka Yukihiro and the story of her and Asuna'a bitter rivalry.

"Magister Negi Magi" is really starting to pick up with this volume. The characters are getting fleshed out and the girls are starting to get their own personalities and motivations. Of course, Negi is still the star and the book is packed with Akamatsu's trademark humor. A great comic, that I highly recommend!

In this volume we get a lot of catch up, are introduced to the series' next big threat and get a pretty hefty revelation about the nature of the magical world.

Getting the gang back together and ready is the main thrust of this volume. Yue finally is reunited with her friends. But her memories of them being a few steps behind causes problems. Setsuna and Kanoka form their Pactio with the yuri level cranked up to eleven. Natsuki and Ku Fei struggle with their feelings for Kotaro and Negi while Nadoka and Akira also get their moments in the sun.

Negi's new foe adds a lot to the goings on. His power, ties to Nagi and seeming willingness to answer Negi's questions make him someone to be worried about but not someone that the gang can just avoid. This puts Negi in a situation where he has to play a very dangerous game which ads to the drama nicely.

Lastly, we get a big clue about the nature of the magical world which ties into some key elements from the past and hints at bigger surprises down the road.

Akamatsu clearly has a plan for this series and he's doing a wonderful job at letting things fall into place bit by bit. If you're a fan of the series this volume is a can't miss.

You know how everyone always says the original is the best? Not in this case, cause Harry Potter ain't got jack on Negi! The capers of the pint-sized wizard continue in Negima! volume 2.

Negi is thrown for a loop when he receives a "Final Challenge" from the headmaster of Mahora Academy- stating that if he can manage to get class 2-A out of last place by the end of the semester finals, he will be made a permanent teacher at the Academy. Problem for him, though, is his class contains the Baka Rangers ("baka" being Japanese for "idiot"), five students who are much less than average intelligence- and of course, Asuna Kagurazaka is one of them (the others being Kaede Nagase, Fei Ku, Yue Ayase [surprising, considering her love for anything philosophical], and Makie Sasaki). He tries to do it by magic, but Asuna gets onto him about it, so Negi places a magical restriction on himself so that he can't do magic for the three days prior to the test. This proves to be a bad move, however, as Negi gets dragged along with the Baka Rangers and the Library Exploration group (Haruna Saotome, Konoka Konoe, and Nodoka Miyazaki, with Yue Ayase as the third member) on a quest below the library to find a mysterious magical book that will somehow make them smarter. Of course, hilarity ensues, including one final showdown between Negi and the "rock-and-roller", as he calls it.

This volume of Negima! is I think better than volume 1 in many ways. I liked the subplots, which I will list here:

- Chisame Hasegawa, in which Negi catches her in her secret life of the Internet's hottest cosplay bunny;
- Konoka Konoe, where her and Negi run from her grandfather's attempts to set her up as an o-miai and her confessing a big secret to Negi;
- Fuka and Fumika Narutaki, the twins...

Volume 9 of Negima follows the pattern of "after a big battle, it's time for some mostly unknown student development." While half the volume is dedicated to the general group of magic/tech/martial arts friendly students that usually surround Negi (Chachamaru, Asuna, etc.), the new students to get their own focus are the chef Yotsuba, the ghost Aisaka, and renaissance girl Chao Lingshen...

Various ruckus (rucki? ruckeses?) are planted throughout with plenty of opportunity for fanservice, such as the lovely cosplay section towards the beginning (mmm... bunny girl Setsuna)... not to mention that Negi (er, Nagi?) and Asuna actually go on a date together!

Akamatsu's art is great, as always, and his penchant for having very busy frames carries through with little tidbits of insight and comedy. And, while the progression is, also as always, cliche and stereotypical, he still manages to sneak a few goodies in that can make a reader see past the shallow fun of the festivities to the big picture Akamatsu's trying to paint adventure-wise for the entire title.

All in all, a fun read with more than a few possible red herrings/hints to the grand arc and jokes (nun's who are witches?).
