Show Summary

This show guide covers both the Funimation version and the Japanese version. To become a Master Wizard like his father, the ten year old Negi Springfield must put aside his developing magical skills, and teach English to a middle school class on the Mahoraba campus. Not a problem, except that his class is all girls, each with her own personality, and some even have magical powers and hidden abilities. With so many pretty young girls wanting to win an even younger "Negi-sensei's" affection, how will poor Negi make it through the year? A fun little show from the mind of Ken Akamatsu, the creator of the enormously popular Love Hina romantic comedy.

  • What was that all about?

    2.5
    What the heck was that, like what is this?. Ok, Ok im not a fan of anime and this is also the reason why anime is crap now. And it also drives cartoon fans crazy.



    Ok, it's all about that 10 year old guy named Negima who had accidentally become a teacher in the classroom of girls. Many girls fell in love with Negima (what the heck)



    The plots doesn't even make any sense, like girls' breast got bigger (what the heck, but im serious). It has also anime fetishism too. This isn't appropriate for kids who are 10 years below.



    And people love this show, yeah right but they're wrong. Sorry fans for this.moreless
  • Although it wasn't my favorite anime, Negima made me laugh, cry, and cheer.

    7.0
    A few years ago, I began reading the Negima manga and fell in love with the world. I loved the characters and the entire storyline for the most part. After reading a few volumes, I decided to try out the first anime to see how good it was. Unfortunately, if you were a big fan of the manga, the anime won't live up to it. But still, it's a great show - better than most anime I've seen.



    The show is about a young magician, Negi, that leaves his country Wales to complete his wizard training. What he is told is that he will be teaching English at a school in Japan. What he isn't told is that he'll be teaching a class of 31 girls - some not even human.



    The problem about the anime is the pace. In the manga, the first three to four volumes introduced us to the characters. In the anime, this takes about seven episodes. The manga dedicates about ten issues to the Evangeline Ark while the anime covers it in about two episodes. Also, the anime ends in about twenty-five volumes of the manga leaving a lot of unsolved problems and leaving the storyline incomplete.



    Overall, if you haven't read the manga you may be okay with the show. I had read the manga and the show came out average. It's still a good watch, though!moreless

    Negi Springfield is a ten year old wizard from Wales, who dreams of becoming a Magister Magi a special wizard who uses his powers to help normal people using covers such as working for NGOs. Negi's reason for becoming a Magister Magi is to find his father, Nagi Springfield, the legendary mage also known as the "Thousand Master" who many believe to be dead. After graduating from the Merdiana Magic Academy in Wales, Negi is given a duty as a cover in the real world, and training, before he actually becomes a Magister Magi. That duty is to become an English teacher at Mahora Academy in Japan. The task will not be easy, however, as Negi will become a teacher to a Middle School class of 31 older girls, each very special in her own way. The series details his time and adventures in Japan as he gains acceptance and respect from his students, helps them in their problems, and faces magical threats from inside and outside Mahora Academy. His main relationship is with Asuna Kagurazaka, his student and roommate, who dislikes him initially but later accepts him as a friend and becomes his partner, helping find clues about his father and his life.moreless
