Magical Boy?

So I have seen some magical girls animes. Wondering if there are more magical boys shows?

I could only think of Negima for a magical boy show.

How do you define magical girl anyway ? My impression of mahou shoujo : Traaaanssssfoooorrrrmmmmmmm ... ( with ofc all clothes disappearing and reappearing as different ). Then they fight against the evil and save the world X_X.

So how would you put Negima in that category ? D:.

Magical girl/boy refers to the idea that there is a character in the series who has some special powers and they're placed in the real world. Have not seen Negima, so only going off the description, but he is a wizard placed in the real world. From what I have seen, most magical girl/boy stuff ends up being a romance of some sort.

Well there is DNAngel.
Daisuke pretty much does the same thing as Dark that Maron does as Jeanne and Reimi as Saint Tail.

There are also plenty of shows where the main is a magical girl but have magical boys as rivals/sidekicks/mysterious protectors.
Shugo Chara!, Sailor Moon, Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne, Pretear, Kamichama Karin, Kaitou Tenshi Twin Angel, Princess Tutu, Akazukin Cha Cha, Fairy Musketeers.

There are also Rental Magica and Night Wizard. They could count as magical girl/boy shows by a loose definition and Itsuki and Renji are both male. There better than the Negima anime at the very least.

You know, most of the magical girl I watched have boys that can also do magic. For example, Cardcaptor Sakura, Shugo Chara, and Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha all have "magical boys." But if you want a magical boy lead, then maybe...Zero no Tsukaima or Bleach?

Yeah uhh, magical girl doesn't just refer to a girl who does magic. It's like a subgenre of shoujo... Normal girl meets magical mascot and gains the ability to transform and fight some not-so-nefarious bad guys (and/or dance/sing I guess).

So when it's a guy and it's not a shoujo anime it doesn't really have much to do with magical girls anymore...

Mythical Detective Loki Ragnorak is a true "Mahou Shounen" series, complete with magical transformation. Suteki Tantei Labyrinth would also qualify, though I don't consider it nearly as good.
