Mahou Sensei Negima! (Magical Teacher Negima!)
Watched roughly 2009
In summary an almost ridiculous show with too many characters and far too much going on. We have cyborgs, witches and more. You name it, this show has it. The characters are half fleshed in and this show attempts to take on the highs and lows of an entire class, in 26 episodes. Giving everyone ‘unique’ powers that are often almost the definition of a ‘Mary Sue’ character.
We follow a 10 year boy, from Wales of all places, as he becomes teacher at an all girls boarding school. Negi Springfield. A mage, whose dream is to become a master mage and find his father. Class 2-A. A class of 31 girls. Honestly, this show would have been twice as good if they had cut the girls by half and actually thought about them a bit more. They are just walking tropes. Down the girl who will destroy the girl by her very existence.
The ending was sweet and the show does give some excellent laughs. As a comedy it succeeds. It’s just not an anime I would actually recommend because it lacks in pretty much everything else in my opinion. Also it is classed as romance. Lots of not right situations with the girls and their 10 year old teacher. Some are funny, others are just a little uncomfortable.
I give it a silver because it is worth a watch for the comedy.
