Great manga   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

One of the best fighting manga I've ever read, there's some hole early like Evangeline was weak but later she actually really good even when he still sealed. But inconsistency was gone after around 10 volume power level was managed really well so no more surprise or inconsistency.

I never really expect love story, and when presented I don't really care for the harem because unlike other character this one was 10 years old boy so even if he confused, not noticing, cant reply back I can understand(what you expect guys... seriously love story gimme a break). Honestly the most bad score anyone can give was 6, giving less than that mean you just a hater. There's character progression some are weak but still better than other harem fighting manga.

As for the ending also I can understand why author make it that way after all Negima ending was an anchor for UQ Holder! which btw much2 more awesome than Negima, I just hope it can answer all my question at the end, but even when not I still will give both manga solid 9 and 10.

Ho Hum, Just More Magic Fighting

I bought this manga because there were many possibilities for funny and sweet relationships between the ostensibly smart main character and the kids. What it turned into, though, is mostly magic fighting. I don't like magic because as far as I know no-one except some marginal folks have believed in it for several hundred years. And I don't like fighting, manga variety, because it's all just nothing—people jumping around in the air and waving things at each other, and NO ONE EVER ACTUALLY GETS HURT.

What a waste of thousands of hours of drawing work and a few hours of my time 'til I figured out what it was and trashed it!

good read for fun. Don't appreciate loose ends or so many short cuts(end felt quite rushed and rapid all things considered) but there's a sequel so perhaps some things will eventually be settled, you know the whole WHO THE HELL HE ENDS UP WITH. haven't started reading UQ yet looks interesting read about the main and who hes related to but that's just made me even more confused........

I read the manga back in the day where i forced myself to keep up with "popular" series and have to get this off my chest after years of silence. I dislike Akamatsu(only the first half of Love Hina is ok in my book) and this manga really pissed me off. The world rules and random development made no sense.
How often did Negi change his age, how often did the genre shift on a whim and how little time did pass ?
Then the vast harem elements which make up 50% of the story in form of filler and the ending are a joke(one point deduction). I read that he fought the publisher(but still works for them ?) or something and the readers lost i guess.
It least i could jump off. The ecchi elements were downright unreadable to me(loli rape jokes really ?) and are especially problematic if you know that the author does lolicon porn in his free time. Which is of the yuri variety so why he messed up so badly here i don´t even know. It´ like Sailor Moon never happened.
The art is technically well done but the designs are all to similar and bland to be remembered. I read 3 random chapters of the "sequel" for reference and expect no review for that one because i found it a money grabbing joke and stopped reading garbage thank to manga´s like Negima. Akamatsu may be a friend of Miura but he and i will probably never meet again. Read Ran to Haiiro no Sekai for a magical manga instead.

Super! Great ending too!

The manga was great and fun from start to finish, Character development, especially emotion-wise, was portraited detaily. I like the ending too, it was not rushed like most other manga, ending in 1 or 2 chapters, this one has enough chapters for closing most, if not all the loose ends.

Overall, a great fantasical adventure, with lighthearted but emotional friendship, and love comedy, without being too forcefull, typical of a harem story.

Give it a read if you haven't, it's an experience totally worth your time!

i read this because i love cute little kids saving the world, and im not dissapointed at all. its not always you find a manga where 10 year old boy get molested by hoards of 15 year old girls and not a hentai, so im very thankful of this manga.

the first 250ch of this manga is a blast. i love the interactions between negi and the girls, and their countless struggles for his lips. the craziness of mahora academy and the diverse stories for every one of the girls make me respect the mangaka in being able to keep track of every single one of them. im not gonna lie, until the end im unable to separate some of the girls from each other, their hairstyles not enough make me notice them. around ch 250 to 310, the battle is too intense, i get quite bored with the story. to anyone who love battle manga, this will be great for you, but for me that prefer the interactions of negi and the girls this is quite a drag and i have to force myself to read them. in the end i do not think anything is properly explained. but the last chapters are very cool. i love the 'after the end' chapters, because it shows how close is their relationships! i wish negi stay a shota forever. i love that the various characters are given proper ending, it bring somewhat a closure to me after these 38 volumes.

read this if you love shota, combat, magic, panties and more!

Pretty Solid

Well, I'm not sure if I missed something from the others. But I think this manga was pretty solid. The story gradually became better and better. The ending was pretty good as well.

Anyway, truth to be told, I loved this manga!

This manga had a good premise until it basically turned into a Dragon Ball Z clone.

All of the wonderful character development and comedic aspects that were present in the earlier volumes pretty much went down the drain about half way though when the focus, for some reason, shifted to pointless battles (no one cares about) and Negi gaining more and more unrealistic powers. Even the romantic elements which made the first several volumes interesting were for the most part abandoned. This manga really should have stayed a romantic comedy and ended after 10-20 volumes!

This is only the second time I managed to read 20+ volumes of a manga and wasn't able to finish it -- I dropped it somewhere in the middle of volume 33 as I didn't feel any connection what-so-ever to the story anymore.

Reboot Rumored to be in the Works

This manga was absolutely fantastic, hands down. Rom-com, action-adventure, slice of life, this encompasses it all. To all the people out there dissapointed with the ending, take note that Akamatsu-sensei is undergoing a copyright dispute with his publisher at the moment, which is why he ended the series early (to protect his copyright). Once the dispute ends, I expect that we'll see a reboot of the series that addresses all the plot holes the rushed ending left us.

probably many argue, Negima has a lot of character, and it's confusing. But, that's the interesting part of Negima. 3-A All students have different properties, and it's trying to show of the problems they face. That's what makes me like curious, what will happen to the girls then? or, in fact how her feelings are real? . It's very interesting and sometimes surprise us. things that I get from reading the Negima is STUBBORN, not to give in any case. And there is one very important thing! Ken Akamatsu CANT DRAWING UGLY PEOPLE? ,BECAUSE THE GIRLS THAT LOOKS VERY CUTE,hahaha
