OMG

Spoiler for the end:


Well, that's that. Pointless to the end.

P.S. Nice post Azure22! I believe those who have expected some form of plot will agree with your overall assessment of the series. Those that didn't expect much from the show, well, they extracted whatever was given which, in a nutshell, is nothing.

So, monir, in essence you're saying it was a Seinfeld ... a show about "nothing"

Monir !
You missed the naked Nodoka !
(well, sort of ...)

That adaptation is quite disturbing for me.
To put so much money (comparing to some ninja anime) for such a little result is difficult to understand for me ...

But as a Yue-Fan, I really enjoyed the two episodes which were dedicated to her.
They were also part of the few serious one, asking myself if the director isn't a Yue-fan himself for sparing her too much randomness...
With the Natsu OVA, I somehow feel she had received a special treatment comparing to "Shikoku" Makie (which is one of the most beloved characters in the manga polls).

I also enjoyed her suka card part,
Spoiler for Want ... Drink ...:


Because the end of Negima?! feels like a beginning, it will probably be a 2-3 seasons serie.

I have!!!? It's a good thing I didn't delete the episode yet. Shall do a rewatch later.

Btw, I don't believe that the show has much production value. The entire series is comprised of loads of static images in 1 dimensional drawing and hardly any animated movements. The coloring/shadowing makes the drawing appears pretty stylistic, but even that particular aspect of the show wasn't consistent. There are several episodes where the drawing just looks atrocious. There are also not much lip synching as it is very noticeable when a character speak. The camera won't focus on the face. The face will be either sideways, or entirely off screen while you hear a character speaks. If I may exaggerate a bit, I think if 10 people buy 10 sets for the entire series, it probably would cover the cost of animating this series (barring the background music).

That's a very good analogy.

You aren't the only person to notice this, and, honestly, it's becoming somewhat of a theme in Shinbo's shows (make no mistake, I love Shinbo, but his emphasis on plot and the animation he ends up with are not the reasons why). I wonder if Negima!? is getting fixed in DVD releases as Moon Phase and Pani Poni Dash! were.

EDIT: Though I should point out that animation problems are hardly a problem for Shinbo alone (and I'm not trying to imply they are) - nor are they really something he can control. I actually somewhat like the solution he uses (to use a static screen of some kind) because it feels sort of artsy. But I find it irritating when episodes go by where I can't remember anything much moving.

Please don't call this a remake...it was more of a spinoff than anything.

As for the original series, more faithful to the manga up until the end...and that's where it failed too.

Not that either of the anime series were terribly bad interpretations of the original, but I still await the day that Akamatsu-sensei's manga gets the adaptation that it truly deserves. Until then I'll be elsewhere.

Thumbs up Negima last episode season 1 (ep.26)

I pretty much liked the last episode(26) I thought it was really great.even though the battle w/ the devil wasn't very long or exiting.but the chibi asuna was cute. And the World Tree at the end was beautiful

but Natsumi was a little exposing

quoteevangeline-san):"asuna,you've finally learned to come out to your friends who will always be their for you.Good job Negi"

thats the last bit from the last episode

I'm beginning to think Shinbo is the guy they bring in when the show has no budget to speak of and he makes it look "arty".... even his delightfully done Hidamari Sketch might as well be a slide show in some episodes (ep 10.....)

I suppose we'll see if these were all band-aids or actually some artsy attempt in the DVDs.

Still waiting for a production team to actually DO Negima rather than rape the concept. However, the upcoming live-action implies more pillaging ahead .... though I'm sure Ken A. is all shiny and on the set as often as possible to be surrounded by 30+ girls.

This whole series was a joke. For me as a big Negima fan this was a big insult to the Negima franchisee. It should be burned to ashes and never shown again.

Unfortunately, it may not help.... a better chance would be if someone just edited a "best moments of fanservice" short of the whole series....

hmm, truth. i was high while seeing the first 15ish eps. didn't make too much of a difference.

it seems that this is shaft being shaft on the wrong sort of material. pomo treatment should be reserved to cynicism and social stuffs.

I'm a little bit confused, seeing as there are two Negima series out there, which one are you refering to? I'm assuming it's the second one "Negima!?" based on the replies I've seen so far but I can't be absolutely sure.

Well either way I enjoyed the last episodes of both series along with the entire series themselves, though the second one Negima!? was my favorite of the two.

hmm, Am I the only person who actually enjoyed this series? Yeah it wasnt the best, yeah it couldve been better, but it also couldve been worse, the first series wasnt exactly a perfecto either (and im a huge fan of the manga btw)

but for the most part, I thought it was an enjoyable watch, and with the negima!? Neo manga eventually going beyond this point, if they ever made a Second season of Negima!? Id watch it
