Negima! doesn't look anything special from the perspective you are looking at, but it holds up to itself the same way One Piece does.
It may not look like one of the greatest Manga there is. But believe me when I say that once you read it, you get hooked and you won't stop.
Side note: I went from 0 to up-to-date in about 4 days. That hooked I was!

Greatest disappointment in manga history

This started out BRILLIANTLY and continued wonderfully up until the Negi vs Rakan fight (chapter 233). Then it slowly declines in story telling quality and suspense until this becomes my MOST HATED manga ever. If you are planning on reading it, stop after chapter 233, and the only important information that you would need to know after that is
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
You never find out who gets with Negi. They all return to Mahora and graduate happily. Negi sneezes their clothes off about 100000x every chapter and Chao Lin makes a cameo appearance at the end.

THIS IS SO GOOD. It started off really shallow but the characters are explored deeper and the plot develops into something more. The art is just...WOW, and the action parts are so entertaining!! >u< This series kept me on my seat for the whole day, really wrapped me up the the magical world of Mahora.

The only problem I have with this is how the romance can't really be taken seriously. But if you're looking for some intense and interesting magic battle, mixed with a wide array of interesting (and hot >u>) characters and situations, this manga's for you. (^u^)b

The producers of the manga magazine had always wanted akamatsu-sensei to create another "love hina" ripoff, seeing how it got so widely accepted, but akamatsu-sensei had always wanted to draw a shonen action manga. So being like the ninja he is, he disguised Negima to be another school life harem themed manga yet hid heap loads of action potential in it. The result?
Awesome X Awesome!
Don't be discouraged just by reading the first few chps and volumes thinking: gahh! all these characters are annoying, because you'll definitely miss out the character developments in it.
Akamatsu-sensei's unique art style and his perfect amount of humor dosage would serve Negima to become one of the most memorable manga you'll ever read.

good series with irritating and pedophile girls.....

The art is good, story is good but the girls are irritating. All the girls are pedophile wanting love from a 10 year old. Now come on .... 10 year old!!!. Plus too much fan service.....Before 150th chapter almost 75 chapters are unnecessary fan service. Now who would like to see boobs and panties of a 14 yr old. Give me some life. Overall I will rate it 7/10. If there was no fan service and irritating girls then it would have been 10+.

NOTE: The magic land arc is 10/10. No damn fan service

Start like any generic harem series but in actuality thing have been laid on carefully from the start (except the characters design) culminating in truly grand setting for the world, its history and subsequently the plot, the kind of planning that mindless manga like Bleach could only dream of.

Still with all the seriousness it retain all the charming atmosphere of Akamatsu's style, truly enjoyable read.

One of my all time favourites.

I admit, the first reason why I started reading this was for the ecchi and humour ala Love Hina. But then as the plot progressed I noticed how it changed from a harem series to one hell of a kickass action storyline while still retaining the humour and fanservice. This series has been with me since my highschool years and now into my university days. A truly great series.

EDIT: And so it ends...very disappointed in the ending. Nothing feels truly resolved and a major plot point is concluded without any of it being in the manga! It was just one moment its a huge mystery and the next it's all done! We never know who Negi ends up with, interesting characters with huge storytelling potential wasted and some of them just disappear never to be mentioned even in the epilogue! Everything is just one hell of a crazy disappointment. This series, great as it was during the journey ended with a bitter taste.

This series is very nicely written out. While it is typical shounen stock (main character constantly getting stronger to defeat new enemies, etc.), it delivers it out flawlessly and often in comedic fashion. It's funny, very ecchi, and action packed. The series may have a bit of a weak beginning (relied a lot on ecchi scenes), but it gets really good. The ending is really solid, in fact a bit too solid, and as a result, it may not have the emotional impact one would expect. But, it's still worth reading, so don't just drop it because of the first few arcs. To this day, even after 9 years, this manga remains as one of my most favorite manga series.
