What's your Otaku Quotient? (Scenes like the Chalkboard in episode 1)
 
Remember all those bizarre references in the chalk board in epiosde 1? Negima is chock full of references to other shows. Some people get those references and some people don't. The people who get them have a much higher Otaku Quotient. This thread is a chance to prove your Otaku-ness by explaining those references to people who don't get it.

Some rules:
  1. Only discuss things that test your Otaku Quotent. And stick to discussing only things that happen in Negima?! This is not a thread to discuss random shows whose only relevancy is a line of text on a chalkboard.

  2. Don't just give huge lists from many episode. Generally most of the older references will have been mentioned already. Try to talk about what you saw in the latest episode unless someone asks about one of the older episodes.

  3. Read the thread before you ask about some references. Nobody expects you to read the whole thread once it gets over 10 pages, but at least read the last 2 pages to see what has already been mentioned from the most recent episode.

  4. Try not to spoil the episode. Many of these references have no relevancy to the rest of the episode, but if something could be a spoiler, please use a spoiler tag. It works like this:
    [spoiler=Episode 27]Just after Negi dies, you see a really cool message written on his forehead.[/spoiler]

    Spoiler for Episode 27:

Haha, the whole chalkboard is a dork test mang lol

I only got the AzuDai reference in the 1st ep. I'd rather not get every reference on the chalkboard cos being an otaku is bad D:

Vexx 2006-10-14 03:13

Actually, you're already doomed because you used the shorthand "AzuDai" ... too late. :) :)

This exercise reminds me of the time I spent rummaging through references when I was translating Pani Poni Dash!

This is proof that the chalkboard references for Negima!? are random jabs intended for otaku folks, and certainly not for the people who watch it live during the evening.

o_O; I'm surprised you actually got all those references.

I dunno whether I should bow down to you or like run away scared xD

Sushi-Y 2006-10-17 21:13

I'm more surprised that you bothered to go though the trouble to organize all those images. :heh:

By myself, I was able to get about half of the references (for non-Japanese natives, the TV show references are pretty much impossible to understand. Hell, even Japanese natives won't get them all unless all they do is watch TV/anime/play games/be a NEET otaku in general all day).

Which, is also one of the anime that director Shinbou Akiyuki did.

Also, it looks like Hakase is the one that inherited the "shiny forehead" this time.

In episode 2 the Jar-like thing that falls over Kamo had a girl and a logo on it, but I couldnt recognize neither, does somebody knows from where they came?

I believe she's a character from Akamatsu's manga A.I. Love You.

This is cool. I'm creating a wiki. For Negima and all this stuff.

(the chalkboard is killing me<-if you know who i am you know what i mean and thats no one here.)

Two questions I need to ask about this Negima Wiki:

1. Will it include information about the manga?
2. Can you provide a link to the site when it's ready?

[darkfire] 2006-10-24 09:23

The wiki is already created. Were just setting up things. It will have everything "Negima!?" including the new Neo manga. Thats if the wikiers fill like adding it.

Edit:
Well the site is up. Nothing is added. We would like it to be like wannabe's school rumble wiki. We will move things around as things start flowing.

That's not what I meant. What I meant when I mentioned the manga is the original manga that's still running in Shounen Magazine.

[darkfire] 2006-10-25 09:04

Yah Your free to add the orginal MSN manga and tv show if you want. No body is stopping you

Pani Poni Dash! Imagery from Ep. #4

http://xs208.xs.to/xs208/06453/helloNegi_01.jpg

That's gotta be the rabbit....

Click me!

TnAdct1 2006-11-08 14:33

The rabbit also shows up in episode 6, during a scene involving Haruna and Yue.

Some other things I noticed in episode 4:

-During the shot of the "eggs" underneath Negi and Takahata, one of them is actually that jewel that Griffith carries with him in Berserk.
-When Chamo tells the two "annoying mascot" characters that Nodoka has a Pactio with Negi, I believe that that a sound effect from Puzzle Bobble (Bust-a-Move) can be heard.

your right and I was thinking there where did I see this egg ...

TnAdct1 2006-11-25 13:24

Some more references that I've found:

Various episodes:

-Konoka is sometimes seen having the same eyes as Ichijou from Pani Poni Dash (no surprise since Ai Nonaka voices both characters, and most of the Negima!? staff also worked on PPD).

Episode 5:

-During the still of Negi taking the blame of Chamo's peeing on Asuna's sheets, Asuna is seen wearing the same yellow dress that Asuka wore when her character was introduced in Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Episode 7:

-The Triforce from the Legend of Zelda is seen in the "video game" shot of Haruna and Ku Fei's room.

Episode 8:

Spoiler:

-The Chupacabra t-shirts that Asuna gives to the twins features a pair of Chupacabra performing the Fusion technique from Dragon Ball Z.

Quajafrie 2006-11-25 15:34

Episode 2 - The flashback about Eva and Negi's father has some animation identical to the first scene in the first episode of Noein. Specifically, you can see Kosagi's and Fukurou's attack animations, and the animation of Karasu entering the field.

darkchibi07 2006-11-25 16:04

Man, with all these fun references, who's willing to type it all in here:
