Shiroki Tsubasa OVAs
A third set of OVAs called Magical Teacher Negima! ~The White Wing~ (魔法先生ネギま!〜白き翼 ALA ALBA〜, Mahō Sensei Negima! ~Shiroki Tsubasa Ala Alba~?) was announced by Ken Akamatsu himself on his website days after the end of the live-action adaptation's airing. Production will once again be handled by Shaft and the entire anime cast from Negima!? will reprise their roles in this new venture. This set of OVAs will cover chapters 176 to 183 (except 181) and will be shown in three parts:
The first OVA covers chapters 176 and 177 and was released on August 12, 2008, together with the release of Volume 23 of the manga.
The second one will cover chapters 178 to 180 and will have a release date of November 17, 2008, along with the release of Volume 24.
The third one will show chapters 182 and 183 and will be out on February 17, 2009 together with Volume 25.
Just like the Negima adaptations by Shaft (i.e. the Spring and Summer OVAs and Negima!?), Akiyuki Shinbo will take the directing helm in this set of OVAs, together with the very same leading animation crew but will closely follow the original character design and storyline.
From the Negi no Ochakai event that was held on May 2008, Ken Akamatsu mentions that if preorders for the first of the OVAs exceeds 50,000, the staff would consider a film adaptation and 100,000 for a third animated series. The counter at the official website is actually the number of orders for all three OVAs. The counter reached just over 82,000 before the first OVA was released.
