What would you say if you get the chance to become a teacher of a class full of pretty and cute students?
Not bad at all right?
Well thats basically the hole thing behind Negima! Its about the adventures of this group of school girl students and their very unique teacher, a ten year old boy, Negi, who´s also a very skilled magician. He ends up being the girls teacher as a final test to prove himself as a master magician and earning enough skills to clarify the mystery around his missing father. At the beginning Negi founds some troubles getting along with the fact of being a teacher at a so young age, but as the story resolves, he ends up earning confidence and something more than just the respect of his cute students.
As you can see this is like the typical harem show and apparently seems to be the regular fan service based anime. The story itself may not have the most original plot, but its the way it is developed what makes it a unique show.
As pros I would say:
1.- It is rather difficult to categorize it under only one theme, even though it follows the ordinary harem, it has at the same time romance, comedy, action, drama and more.
2.- This also makes it very funny and well balanced, as you don´t get bored with a plane story. You will always find yourself surprised.
3.- It has a wide range of great characters and each one has its own complexity within the story. The series gives a lot of importance to the relationship between each character and Negi.
4.- It has a fast plot and an entertaining story.
As cons I have to say:
1.- Well I have to say that my first impression wasn´t that good, come on, the hole idea of 15 year old girls falling for a 10 year old kid was disturbing, but the story prove itself really good and I ended up forgetting it.
2.- I would have liked to see more battles, it felt like they could have developed that thing a little bit more in the show.
Resuming, it was a great show, entertaining, fast and funny, so I give 4.5 stars out of 5 to Negima!
