It's the humour that you'd expect from Ken Akamatsu. In many ways Negima is Love Hina but made even more funny by the addition of around twenty five girls and making the main character not only nine years old but also a wizard.
This particular volume sees Negi coming to blows with two of his students, not to mention a little ninja training and the arrival of an annoying ferret. Or possibly ermine.
The genius of Negi is the sheer range of characters, as well as the inter-weaving worlds of Japanese highschool and high fantasy. And of course, there's some major plot unrolling somewhere...
By the way, anyone know anyone from Wales named Negi?
After Makie is attacked in a dark street, Negi is determined to find the magical force that harmed her. He barely rescues Nodoka from a cloaked figure, Evangeline McDowell -- one of his students, and apparently also a wizard, a vampire, and with a lethal robot partner.
What's more, she has a grudge against Negi for a curse his father laid on her, and only Asuna's intervention gets Negi away with all his blood. Now it's more important than ever that Negi find a magical partner, but who will it be? Timid Nodoka, cheery ninja Kaede, or street-smart Asuna?
Negi learns more about kind-hearted robot girl Chachamaru, who feeds stray cats, and about the "school hell" curse that the legendary "Thousand Master" -- his father -- put on Evangeline fifteen years ago. But will he and his new partner have the combined strength to defeat the "Dark Evangel," or will Negi become her latest victim?
Akamatsu has a knack for slightly raunchy comedy, but in the third volume of "Negima," he shows that he's got an even stronger knack for adventure/fantasy/horror. Things get pretty grim when Negi is cornered in his own classroom, with a student he can't bring himself to hurt, but who is determined to kill him.
No, it isn't devoid of humour. Most of it is provided by criminal pantyphile Albert Chamomile, a wisecracking ermine who smokes a cigarette and wears a fedora. But Chamo is mostly there to provide information to Negi.Read more ›
This twenty-first volume of ``Negima!' begins with what is probably the first true life or death battle of the series as Fate and his team go up against Negi and his friends. This fateful encounter sees everyone scattered across the magical world and as such from hear on many of the characters will be out of focus somewhat as the story follows Negi as he attempts to find his friends. This volume also shows us a bit more about the Magical World itself and it does look to be a very interesting and well created world.
