Setsuna kakkoii~~!

Negima?!

Ohime-sama dakko~~

I need to constantly remind myself that Negima?! isn’t Negima!. There are a few things here and there in the series I do not agree about, but one thing I must say stands out is the awesomeness of the fight scenes, when SHAFT really gets serious. Setsuna really made this episode for me. Even Secchan Konoka had a show of her powers with the chopsticks, but I much prefer her as the healer/maiden-in-distress role :). Also looks like they combined a bit of Yue’s power in to Nodoka. Asuna’s sword is much bigger than her manga incarnation.

Well… I still have to get used to the weirdness of SHAFT’s humour, though I really love their updated parodies. Doesn’t this look remotely familiar? Didn’t spot anything else for a while now. And what is with the Chupacabra mania in Negima?! ?? :P

    i have mixed feeling about this…
    i mean..they obviously are not related to the manga anymore…
    so.should this be considered blasphemy ?
    or should this be accepted as..”another anime “

    Also, you mean Konoka with the chopsticks.

    @kurotsuki: They did announce that *Negima?!* is an alternate universe series, which gives them more creative license to do things like commercialzing it even more in the form of more cards, 3 per character to be exact. I’m trying to accept as is it… which is an offshoot of the true *Negima!* series.

    @AC: Oops, thanks for pointing it out :). And yes, we need more Strike Freedom :P.

    THE WINGS!! Hopefully Negima?! utilizes them a helluva lot more than Negima! did/does. They were just too cool when they were first revealed… but now they’ve basically nonexistant, and it’s like even the characters (and Seechan herself) forgot they’re there.

    It isn’t like SHAFT ever sticks to the manga. The Tsukuyomi and PPD mangas were horrid, and SHAFT did nothing but improve those, and in PPD’s case, basically completely rewrite the entire thing. If KyoAni is where you send source material to have it faithfully produced without any major changes, SHAFT is where you send source material to let it be totally revamped. Negima just happens to be a much higher quality source than their other two projects and actually has fans and people who care about changes.

    I can’t truly decide between KyoAni’s take of *Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Matsuribayashi-hen*… or SHAFT’s *Higurashi!?*, which would surely feature lots lots *LOTS* of meido fanservice :(

    (btw, everyone seems to be getting the title wrong. It’s *Negima!?*, not “Negima?!”.

    That’s OK anyway….
