Negi Springfield is only 10 years old, but he is trying to become a wizard(Magister Magi) but he was sent to Japan for training, despite the protests from his sister. The principal, who was a friend of his grandfather, assigned him to be the homeroom teacher and English instructor of middle school which is an all girls school. And the class is full of girls, with "special" characteristics, like one being a vampire, another a ghost, another a robot, and others being athletes and bookworms. Negi puts a lot of good will towards everyone and works hard to teach them, and even though most of the girls are very friendly with him, they see him more as a kid to have fun with instead of a respectful instructor, except a few of them, that hate the concept of him being a teacher, one of them is an anti-social computer nerd and the other is a hard worker who had a crush on the previous teacher, and to make matters worse, she found out about Negi, and his magic. Think of it as a Harry Potter meets... Written by Anonymous

User Reviews

I still haven't decided on whether I like this anime or not.
31 October 2006 | by shhhspeakerSee all my reviews

At first I expected something like "Azumanga Daioh" or "Love Hina", something lacking in dialogue but packing in fun. They introduce only mere crumbs of a serious plot but completely leave it in the dark and it's episode after episode of fluffy magic and being introduced to the large cast of characters, even those that don't really matter and lack roles bigger than being just background objects fill ins or single exclamatory lines.

I'm someone who if there's a dialogue, I want to see it I am turned off to unnecessary chiss miss. It's an unreasonable tease. I dislike how they beat around the bush so badly, give you a few minutes or less of an actual dialogue to let you know that there is indeed one lurking about, then it's back to silly fun and games. It generally can't keep a straight face.

I don't feel that I will ever want to run through this series twice like with most of the animes that I own, but will hang onto the DVDs I have purchased in case of a change of heart. I am currently on the dub release in Amerika, so I will most likely edit my comment in the future because the series is still being released (DVD 4 comes out in the coming month).
