Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (7)

    • With the exception of Konoka, who wears a fedora a la Indiana Jones, all the hats that Negi and his Ministra Magi wear during the trip to Library Island contains at least one feature associated with the animal that they turn into when in their Suka form:

      Negi - Mouse ears
      Asuna - Boar ears, snout, and tusks
      Nodoka - Seal flippers and ball
      Setsuna - Japanese crane head and tail

    • In the town deep within Library Island, the Statue of Liberty can be seen except instead of holding a torch, she is holding a book.

    • Fuuka and Fumika make a pactio with Negi. Fuuka kisses him then Fumika.

      Because of this, they also become apart of the Chupa Team.

    • Throughout this episode during the mini music breaks all the characters (except Chamo) are wearing Nodoka's red "cosplay" glasses.

    • Makie goes into a store to find Motsu in the freezer section sleeping under an ice cream bar package and she automatically calls him "Daddy" when he wakes up.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Nodoka: Plase be careful where you step.
      (Asuna steps on a blue switch)
      Asuna: A...
      (A pan falls on Asuna's head)
      Nodoka: Please watch your...
      (Asuna steps on a yellow switch)
      Asuna: (sidesteps to the left) su...
      (A pan hits Asuna from the side)
      Nodoka: Please watch...
      (Asuna steps on a red switch)
      Asuna: (Asuna steps back) na!
      (A pan hits Asuna from behind)
      Negi: Are you okay, Asuna-san!?
      Setsuna: She falls for traps, amusingly...
      Konoka: Asuna's mishaps are normal...

    • Chamo: Way to go, Aniki! Having four partners in such a short amount of time is a brilliant achievement!
      Asuna: Is this alright, Negi? You're making provisional contracts like no tomorrow!
      Konoka: Negi-kun, you're a man now; learn to take some responsibility.
      Negi: take some responsibility?
      Konoka: In Japan, the law is that if you kiss someone, you have to marry that person. Otherwise it's the death penalty.
      (Negi's face turns to shock.)
      Negi: (putting hands on his cheeks): What am I going to do?
      Asuna: (similar pose as Negi) Thanks for telling me that; I don't even think my heart's ready for this!
      Konoka: (smiling) I can't believe you believed that, Asuna.

    • Narrator: By overcoming many, many predicaments, Negi and company have finally arrived. Thank you, Chamo! We'll never forget you and your accomplishments!
      Chamo: I'm still alive!!

    • Setsuna: Ojou-sama, it's dangerous here, so I ask that you refrain from touching any of the books here.
      (Setsuna pauses and looks at one of the books.)
      Setsuna: Could these be the masterpieces and art scrolls made for the Shinmeiryuu during the enlightened era for the Ougi Hyakusei techinique!?
      (Setsuna touches a book and an arrow is shot at her, in which Setsuna cuts it down with her katana.)
      Setsuna: See, Ojou-sama? It's dangerous here.
      Konoka: Look who's talking, Seechan.

    • Negi: W-Who is that man?
      Nodoka: A regular at the library. He knows anything and everything about the library here!
      (Yamada falls off a cliff.)
      Asuna: Ah, he fell.
      Chamo: Yeah, he sure knows anything and everything about it.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Opening Song Credits:
      The opening theme for this episode is "1000% SPARKING" and was sung by Rina Satou (Negi Springfield), Akemi Kanda (Asuna Kagurazaka), Ai Nonaka (Konoka Konoe) and Yu Kobayashi (Setsuna Sakurazaki).

      This version of "1000% SPARKING" contains different lyrics than the previous opening theme.

      The animation has changes in three parts that normally show Fei Ku (pose on a table), Ayaka (standing in front of group of tables) and Makie (wearing a red mask) are now replaced with Asuna (standing on a table), Konoka (standing on a table) and Negi (kneeling between two rows of tables).

      Closing Song Credits:
      The ending theme for this episode is "A-LY-YA" and was sung by Sawa Ishige (Haruna Saotome), Natsuko Kuwatani (Yue Ayase) and Mamiko Noto (Nodoka Miyazaki).

      This animation ends with Motsu wearing a black jacket and having yellow hair and holding up a sign of a gloved hand when he reaches the Negima circle.

      Under the circle, a chibi version of Asuna is dancing with maracas while a chibi version of Konoka is playing the tambourine.

      The background color of this animation contains a combination of orange, red and yellow.

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • The shirts that the Narutaki twins were wearing in one scene have chupacabras doing a "fusion" technique similar to that of the anime, Dragonball Z.

    • Indiana Jones
      During the group's exploration beneath Library Island, Konoka is wearing an outfit resembling that of Indiana Jones. This is also a cross-reference to director Akiyuki Shinbo's previous work, Pani Poni Dash, where Ichijou wears the Indiana Jones get-up in two different episodes. Also, both Ichijou and Konoka are voiced by the same Japanese seiyuu, Ai Nonaka.

    • During one scene, Kaede and the Narutaki twins are watching a horror film, which is an obvious reference to the 1998 Japanese original, Ju-On (or The Ring).

    • Makie: Daddy?
      A subtle allusion to the anime Azumanga Daioh, where Sakaki thinks that Chiyo's dad is a talking cat.

    • At the end segment of the show, Chao wanted to test the Super Power Hand created by Hakase in a fight against Ku Fei. When the fight begins, the meters seen in the fight are similar to ones from the game Marvel vs. Capcom.

    • Whenever the Narutaki Twins stroll around with Kaede, trying to prove themselves to be adults, the costumes they are wearing resemble those on the Teletubbies. Instead of a television monitor on the front, they just have a white sheet with writing on it.
