So yea, looking forward to see how the adaptation goes

I wonder if it was allways blonde.
yeah, I thought Kirie's hair was brown or something similar too, but it is indeed blonde in canon, check the manga vol 4 cover

I see quite a few of people are (understandably) not keen on Touta as the MC.
But I actually feel he is more or less different from a typical shounen protagonist

yeah, he still carries that troupe of "young boy with a dream", but have you notice that right in the 1st ep, he says straight to Yukihime (Eva) that being immortal ain't so bad if he can be with her.

That is, IMO, is quite a breadth of fresh air. A young lad that actually places some importance in his relationship other than his "dream"? Aw hell naw

Yeah, typical shounen protagonist that are chasing after a dream will, at best, treat others as friends. Sometimes not even noticing other character's feelings.
This used to be a common thing in sports anime/manga, where even the "main girl" that likes the protagonist doesn't want to get in the way of his dream.
But lately, that has been seen in other genres, such as adventure/fantasy types.

UQ Holder though, is done by Akamatsu, expect great things

Eva had to watch all her friends die/disappear due to her being an immortal. Eva reflecting how she was always alone due to being an immortal. It's a sad opening sequence. Flash forward 80 years to her new life....

...Odd that you should mention that... But no, in this case it's just a timeskip. Despite her better judgement Evangeline became friends with a bunch of (mostly) mortal people who then passed out of her life over the course of 80 years, leaving her yet again alone and having lost the people she'd formed bonds with.

Evangeline just as cool as i remember but even cooler in her adult form. Also i'm surprised to be seeing people get cut up into many pieces right in the first episode.
When your MC's are immortal regenerating vampires that's the level of damage you need to just get them ,out of the fight for a few minutes . Welcome to Hellsing lite.

I suspect it may be only 1cour. Unfortunately, I don't see this story as popular enough to earn 2 cours

Spoiler rules do apply here so please don't post hints or other information that the anime itself hasn't shown yet (even if advertisements "go there").

Thank you.

Okay, I will follow that.

In any case I'm not sure one can fit a satisfying ending of season 1 in 13 episodes without some serious cutting.

You better get ready, I'm quite sure they're gonna either make cuts here and there or rush the hell of it through.

It wouldn't be a Negima anime without plot butchering.

As said by others.

It was a 80 year time jump of early chapter of Negima (manga) to her current time period (the future).

Eva was reminiscing (or more like dreaming) about the past when she was a just a happy immortal living in the school and having fun where Negi blows ppls cloth off with a sneeze. (the manga originally started out as sort of Love Hina style of Slice-of-Life, it wasn't until the mid of manga when they change it to Battle Action style cause ppls got bored of Romantic Comedy.

I wouldn't even say it was mid manga. The Osaka trip was rather early right, and that practically kicked off most of the actual plot

And Akamatsu-sensei, as far as I remember reading in an interview, wanted from the beginning to have Negima! as a battle manga.

Yeah. The story as far as I know was that, after Love Hina, he was pigeonholed as The Harem Manga Guy by his publishers, so he pushed Negima as a harem manga while having every intention to transition to what he really wanted to do later.
