So we are going to see the moment Chao using her secret weapon completely destroying Negi's team animated... Can't wait for that! Though I'm not sure I'm going to laugh that hard as I did when I've read it in manga...
um... it's actually up in youtube.. not translated but then again, people who read the manga already got the gist of what happened...
and no... we don't get to see the secret weapon... well, maybe parts of it...
but yeah... Fulgario Albicans (White Thunder) rocks!!! >: D
then again.. I hate how they made the opening vid... >_>
this ain't a fricking billiard pool... : /
though ed was kewl...
I knew Ken would eventually get fed up with everyone bastardising his manga and chopping it into unrecognisable bits in an anime verison. Kudos to him.
Unfortunately he has a lot of work ahead of him since the first season and second series "Negima?!" totally ruined the image of his manga to new anime viewers and those who wern't following the manga. I know a lot of people have already written Mahou Sensei Negima as a dud after the first season, those who gave him a second chance with the second season (Negima?!) had whatever hopes they had for it dashed because imo it was trash just like the first season.
I certainly hope he achieves his sales target and continues on with animating the rest of his manga. There were many things I wanted to see animated (Eva leaving the academy and pwning that huge demon with Chachamaru support; the entirety of the festival tournament and other awesome scenes). It probably won't happen but I'm still happy that any of his original material is getting animated the way he wants it and not some dumbass director out looking to make a few bucks.
^ Wow harshness. I agree with how Negima!? took things in a different direction, but it was a better series overall. It was funny and it was animated much better than the first series was. It made me wonder if Akamatsu-sensei even worked on the second series(which is it's own spin off manga now...).....He's had a track record for making good manga and bad anime.
We can only hope that he learns from his mistakes here.
You serious?! Can you give me a link? I'd be really greatful.

hurr you go...

^ doesn't look too bad so far. The soundtrack doesn't feel as grating as the first series( at least to me...). and the cinematics are a lot like Negima?! .
To rodavlas Thanks a lot ^_^ Though I didn't manage to see the moments I expected, it was still fun.
But anyway, I still consider that charqacters drawn in manga are cuter than animated ones, especially Yue and Chio. This may sound coarse and obvious but I'm sure no animation version of Negima will ever surpass the manga.
P. S. Green eyes do not suit Ayaka a.k.a. Incho.
P. P. S. Only three episodes?.. I know it's not fair for me to say that, but it's just not fair v_v.

so far though... no ecchi stuff.. well, aside from minor panty shots but then again, there weren't any ecchi stuff that happened during those chapters so I guess I can overlook it... olololoololol
Well, as far as I know, those three OVA episodes represent a bonus for those people who bought 23-rd, 24-th and 25-th volume of Negima manga.
