The release date for the second OVA, Negima! OVA Summer Special has been set for November 22. This is a surprisingly quick release considering it's only a month after the release of the Spring OVA (October 25), and the fact that the Summer OVA screening hasn't taken place yet.

As with the Spring OVA, there will be two discs, one for the feature presentation and the other for a behind the scene extras, including voice dubbing shooting and coverage of the Summer OVA event, to be held on Sept. 17 (incidentally, I received the invitation to it by mail today).

Here is the synopsis for the Summer OVA. Beware! Spoiler warning! (Spring OVA synopsis here)

All right. The second OAV is going to be Nodoka-focused. I definitely need to watch that when it comes out.

(hopes for, if the OAV does acknowledge Negi's Pactio with Nodoka,

Well... it *sounds* like a completely original OVA, so I wouldn't count on the festival appearance. I just love Engrish ... "The start of a heart-throbbing, happening-filled adventure." <blargh>

Looks like Negi-overload with the series and the OVAs all popping at the same time.

True, though thats not a bad think at all - its just a shame most of its got nothing to do with the manga.

ok after watching the promo the first thing that popped into my mind was...

what is this crap.

I'm going to have to be harsh now because i couldnt tell if negima was supposed to be an ecchi school girl show or a bikini porno. you would have thought they figured out in the first seasons twenty or so episodes that the story sucked.

and so what do they do about it? hey lets stick everyone on a deserted island and have them drop in by sky diving. beacuse this was never done before. there isnt a whole love hina OVA where this already happened.

I wanted a story about the girls and why they are unique. when i say unique i dont mean by the different color panties they wear. the negi sneezing bit has been done twice. three times now. its not funny anymore.

at least the second half of the promo does look to be promising. hopefully they dont stick to all that fanservice because that is a turn off. fanservice should be done with taste. not a buffet where its stuffed down your throat.

ok i feel better now.

I never get past second episode of anime, but I'm reading manga as they come out. From the promo it looks like they will animate end of seventh book, recognized a lot of scenes, and some original material, at least I don't remember that there were more than just beach scene.

Well, looking forward to this one, mainly because the director is Akiyuki Shinbo, so it can't be bad, ne?

The fact that the first OAV is basically going to be a "fanservice" fest is one reason why I'm planning to skip that one and instead wait for the Summer OAV (Nodogi = cutest anime couple IMO) and the TV series.

The 1st OVA appears to be primarily a retelling of the beach trip in the manga (some modifications and expanded whatnot). Since Evangeline supposedly can't leave the perimeter without special dispensation, it'll be interesting to see if they cover that plothole or ignore it.
As far as the fanser... okay... camera angle on butts .... it is pretty extensive and repetitive ... but then I've noticed the manga volume incidents are getting more blatantly risque though the total number of "fan bits" have dropped.

This is bullshit. WHY!? you may ask:

1. NEGI DOESN'T write in the air to cast spells. he never ONCE did that in the manga!

2. I hate what they did To Nodoka. she's may favorite character and she didn't need a "small" design change to her. For God's sakes they shortened her face covering hair.

3. CAN'T ANYONE GET EVANGILINE'S LOOK WRITE! neither the origanl nor the OVA seem to get her to look like the manga version!

4. Asuna has 2 different colored eyes! They didn't put that in the OVA! and does anyone else notice that she looks more like Usagi from Saior Moon than Asuna from the Manga! GOD!

5. Sakurako's hair is a fucked up blonde!? IT'S ORANGE DUMBASSES!!!

6. Yotuba lost weight!? she is a full figured character people!

7. Ako, Makie, and Chizune all character degines are off. NEED TO BE FIXED!!!!!

Im not going to watch this shit. The "effects" maybe better that the origanl anime series but this OVA squese further from the manga that the origanl did. this does the manga a huge diservice.

However. since the 2nd OVA seems to focus on Nodoka's love for Negi i might watch it just for that. but if it has a bad end for her love for him i will never watch any of the OVA ever again.

Well... at least Rin-sama is specific about his complaints. I'd seen the character (re)designs a while back and given that the SHAFT team was involved... their artstyle is just different --- I gave it a pass since you could still tell who was who. Kind of like looking at a character done by different artists in their own styles.

I admit I have no clue why anyone thought messing with Asuna's eyes was okay.

I'm ambivalent about the finger writing because frankly, manga is a collection of still frames... in fact, parts of volume 11 during the fight sequences.. its rather tough to figure out what is going on at times (Ken A. lacks some finesse in combat storyboarding).

The real key will be the story ... we know it isn't going to follow the manga line for line though it may incorporate concepts or major events -- but will it capture the spirit of the characters and the flavor of the adventures? Dunno til we see it.

Whats the point of complaining about changes in a OVA when the purpose of it is to change what people didn't like in the previous series?

Wow.. if you're not liking it now, i can't see you liking the new TV series at all.

your supposed to make changes to improve the show

honestly, were people complaining about not enough panty shots before?

what if they changed asuna's eye color every other screen event, lol that would be funny. its very important for asuna to have different color eyes, it would be like if she did not have the bells in her hair. its just not right.

The amount of fanservice was a complaint among some of my friends.

It's a shame that no one so far can get Asuna right.

they all look matured (physically i mean). is this like a continuation of the series or a stand alone version?

The OVA is a re-telling of the beach arc from the manga, but with a few new extras parts - though it shall be a stand alone story, meaning its not got anything to do with the brand new series that starts later this year.

As far as their physicality, I'm watching Ken do the same thing to his girls... compare some of the girls from volume 1 with volume 11.... they must serve really uber-tofu in Japan. Hair color changes are annoying but not out of the question since a bottle of hair color is available technology.... but Asuna's eyes are just annoying. Its like doing Chach without her ear fins.
