Negima!? : Spring SummerNegima!? : Spring Summer
Negima!?: Spring Summer
Anime DVD Review

Negima, from Love Hina's creator, Ken Akamatsu, is basically what happens when you take an underage wizard, and throw him to the wolves... or in this case, a class of 31 hormone-frenzied teenage girls who all happen to find him adorable.

In this OVA (based on the series), Ayaka arranges a romantic getaway, determined to lift the little professor's spirits (and possibly something more!), but when the rest of the group finds out, the outing turns into a no-holds-barred spring break in a warm tropical paradise. Rest assured that the bathing suits are sparse, and should Negima accidentally sneeze, even their itty-bitty outfits will disappear in a puff of magic.

Negima!? : Spring SummerLater, a magic spell goes awry, and Negi finds himself on a short leash — harnessed to Nodoka! And while it may be a dream come true for the soft-spoken bookworm, an impromptu trip to Ayaka's family spa ensures it will turn into a hard-core nightmare!

This is Negima after all, and you want him to bathe? While attached to a woman? Who needs viagra when you've got these hot ladies vying for your attention?

Manga Review

It's Harry Potter meets Love Hina when a 10-year-old wizard in training who goes off to do his work experience teaching English in an all-girls school.
Negi Magi: It just doesn't get cuter than this!
Unfortunately, the girls he has to teach are older and more physically developed than he is, which brings out his allergy to uncomfortable situations – a magical sneeze capable of blowing the outer garments off any female in his path!

Particularly striking about this manga is Ken Akamatsu's ability to create a class of 31 girls and have them all with different looks and personalities. The art undoubtedly helps - although there's a simplistic style to his work, he's managed to keep his class of girls looking individual, with differing heights and haircuts. If you enjoyed Love Hina, you'll adore this manga series!
