4.0 out of 5 stars Negima! 26 Aug 2009
By T. R. Alexander TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

This series follows ten year old Negi Springfield from Wales who gets a job teaching a class of teenagers at Mahora Academy an all-girls school in Japan. This is the final test for the young wizard in training as Negi must try to be a good teacher as well as keeping his magic secret. Negi isn't the only one with secrets though as many of the girls in his class and the Academy itself have their own secrets.

I am quite a fan of the `Negima!' manga and although this anime series doesn't live up to the original quite as well as it could, it does have its moments and is enjoyable in its own way. The series doesn't really find its feet for the first few episodes but once the Evangeline story arc starts the series does seem to settle down somewhat.

The series does have quite a few problems but the worst has to be the quite poor English dub which has some truly awful British accents and can be quite annoying at times and although the animation is generally okay there are a few annoyances.

Although some parts are out of sequence and others are greatly curtailed storyline is good and keeps reasonably close to the manga until the final few episodes of the series. The final four episodes, although they do deviate from the manga storyline heavily, are actually quite good and surprisingly emotional in places even if the series finale does go a bit over the top in places.

Overall this series is good but doesn't live up to its potential the series is nonetheless quite entertaining although, as with many anime series, the manga is far superior. I feel that the series disserves somewhere in the region of three and a half stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars When anime meets Harry Potter... 4 Dec 2008
By J. Snook VINE VOICE
You may think that Negi Springfield could be a character straight from the pages of Harry Potter as he is a bespectacled 10 year old wizard attending school. However, he is not attending school to learn magic...on the contrary he is the teacher!!

Negima is a magical harem comedy originally concepted as a manga by the writer of Love Hina, Ken Akamatsu. In the first episode you see Negi introduced to his non magical, all female class at the Mahora Academy. The series progresses through 26 episodes that last around 25 minutes each. Most of the episodes are lighthearted and fun that have some good comedy and at the same time the series creates some likeable and entertaining characters...even if most of them are bonkers. I particularly liked how each member of the class have been carefully and individually designed. Sometimes in anime, you notice that alot of the sub characters look quite stock and unoriginal, but the same cannot be said for Negima. Even though there are so many characters to take into consideration, each of them is giving some screen time at some point in the series. However, the story itself sometimes comes across as very un-original and it feels as if I've seen the same sort of thing before in other animes. Furthermore, even though the characters are nicely designed, and create some decent comic relief, the majority of them seem very shallow and stupid, and only a handful are fleshed out...I guess that's the harem genre for you.

Like Ken Akamatsu's other works, Negima also pays a fair amount of attention to fanservice...For some bizarre reason most of the class that Negi teaches have crushes on him despite him being 10 years old. Sometimes it can get a bit strange but it never goes too far to the point of being just plain wierd.

3.0 out of 5 stars Asinus in cathedra 16 Oct 2008
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Negi Springfield is often touted as Japan's answer to Harry Potter, although in personality he's a bit more like Hermione.

And while the wizard prodigy isn't quite shown to his full potential in the anime adaptation "Negima," where stretches of fluffy harem comedy are speckled with serious magic and action. While it starts slowly and relies too heavily on semi-nudity and slapsticky antics, the more wizardly adventures end up keeping it worth watching.

Middle-school student Asuna is desperately hoping that her crush, Professor Takahata, will be teaching homeroom at Mahora Academy this year... and her mood is further soured by a preteen boy who tells her, "Not everyone can be lucky in love."

Turns out the boy, a Welsh prodigy named Negi Springfield, IS the new teacher. Most of the girls immediately love him, but Asuna is enraged by Negi's "weirdness" -- when she glimpses him magically saving a student, his secret comes out: Negi is a wizard, and if Asuna reveals his secret he'll be turned into an ermine. Fortunately, Asuna agrees to keep his secret... if he makes a love potion for her, with predictably chaotic results.

And soon Negi is faced by a creature from his family past -- a vampiric student who is determined to drain his blood. And he has to deal with myriad other troubles -- web idols, vicious volleyball teams, kiss contests, spying cheerleaders, a timid ghost, and a scheming ermine. And when Negi's job hangs on his class's bottom-of-the-barrel test scores, Asuna organizes a trip to the mysterious Library Island to get a magical book that can make even the Dummy Force smart!
