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)

Format: Paperback
Negima - the latest work from Ken Akamatsu (Love Hina) has been running now since 2003 and despite initially seeming to be another harem/romance manga like Love Hina, Negima has fully separated itself from that series to become one of the best shonen/action/romance/comedy manga's out of there. I have read a lot of shonen action manga's over the years, Naruto is a good series but runs at a snail's pace, Bleach got repetitive, Historys Strongest Disciple has dissolved into fan service, One Piece is too bizarre and Yu Yu Hakashu ended prematurely. These are all great action manga's (along with many others) in their own right and will have legions of followers who will swear that 'they' are the best shonen manga out there these and yet for me, Negima remains the most enjoyable, action-packed manga out there - why?

The set up for Negima initially seems bizarre. Negi Springfield (aged 10) from Wales dreams of becoming a Magister Magi and as part of his studies is sent to Japan to become an English teacher at the all girls school of Mahora Academy for a class of 31 older girls. Between his magic studies and work as a school teacher he is on the hunt for his father, Nagi, the legendary 'Thousand Master' believed to be dead.

Thus the first volume introduces Negi and he is as overawed and confused by his class of 31 ladies as the reader is, what quickly separates this series from many others is that over time, each of the 31 ladies (plus many other supporting female and male characters) becomes fully developed and integrated into the story. Many other authors would struggle to make each character individual and special, yet Akamatsu largely succeeds, hence why each character has a fan club of some description back in Japan...

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ten year old wizard Negi Springfield has graduated top of his class from his magic school in Wales. In order to complete his training and become a fully-fledged Magister Magi like his famous father he must now teach a class at Mahora Academy, an all-girls school in Japan, without anyone discovering that he is a wizard. As he deal with both his own problems as well as those of his students he quickly discovers that his class and the school itself aren't quite as normal as they first appear.

'Negima!' is a brilliant series that is easily my all-time favourite manga. This omnibus contains the first three volumes of the series and I must say that it was very enjoyable to read the early parts of the series after reading through the entire series as it is nice to see how much the series and the characters have developed over the years. The original Del Rey release of these volumes was quite infamous for the poor translation and this omnibus retranslates these volumes to be much better, although there are still a few minor issues here and there.

The first volume in this omnibus is an introduction for the characters, allowing us to see how Negi deals with his first few weeks as a teacher and introduces the various students. The volume doesn't have much in the way of plot but it does lay the groundwork for the series and has some foreshadowing of future developments.

The second volume consists mostly of the Library Island arc where the Baka Rangers, the five worst students in the class, search for a magical book that will make them smarter so that they can pass their exams. After this there are four chapters that each focuses on a one or two of the students (Chisame Hasegawa, the Narutaki twins, Ayaka Yukihiro and Konoka Konoe respectively).

Format: Paperback
Negima! is one of if not the best Shonen manga. As others have said Ken Akamatsu fully develops each of the 31 girls in Negi's harem (class). It is very hard to choose a favourite because there are so many great characters in this series. If you like magic, school romance, ecchi and a great story with great artwork then you'll love Negima!
