Impressions on Negima Live Action Episode 1

Oh yes, I am a f-cking SAINT! I managed to watch the first episode of the Negima Live Action. I’m lazy to type out the review, so just read the condensed chatlog of my impressions.

[21:38] <kur0gan3> I am so going to regret this…

[21:49] <kur0gan3> oh my god, Sasaki just stripped in the middle of class
[21:50] <Gains-out> i think i might see it…
[21:50] <kur0gan3> make sure you have nothing sharp nearby
[21:50] <kur0gan3> you might injure yourself
[21:51] <kur0gan3> whoever they chose to play Takahata doesn’t fit at all
[21:51] <kur0gan3> oh shit
[21:51] <kur0gan3> Nodoka’s appearance
[21:52] <kur0gan3> must. resist. stabbing self
[21:52] <Gains-out> i can’t imagine the non mamiko nodoka
[21:52] <kur0gan3> don’t
[21:52] <kur0gan3> okay, Konoka looks like a slut
[21:52] <AnonyM0US3> kur0gan3 – you HAVE to review this, it’s so bad that it DEMANDS a review!
[21:53] <AnonyM0US3> (from the sound of things anyway)
[21:53] <kur0gan3> i don’t feel like writing any thing
[21:53] <kur0gan3> why is Shizuka-sensei serving milk to Negi

[21:57] <kur0gan3> well, at the least, whoever they hired to act as Asuna knows her character
[21:57] <kur0gan3> uh oh
[21:57] <kur0gan3> Negi’s being swarmed by girls

[22:00] <kur0gan3> I’m almost finished with the episode
[22:00] <kur0gan3> I AM A SAINT!
[22:00] <XGas> you are!
[22:01] <XGas> to be able to withstand that horrible abomination.
[22:01] <Gains-out> put a fact on kuro
[22:01] <Gains-out> patron saint of negima :P
[22:01] <kur0gan3> LOL
[22:02] <XGas> @fact-set kur0gan3 Patron Saint of Negima
[22:02] <LoliPico> Fact recorded.

Well, actually it was not as bad as, uh, Sailormoon Live Action. They did keep the magical effects to a minimum and made it at the least, not too overtly in-your-f-cking-face, even if it was still cheesy. The actress for Negi was a total fail though, her acting was wooden. Asuna’s one did a good job of doing her though.

I might, keyword here -might-, check out the next episode, although I feel like not after seeing how Eva and Chachamaru look like in it.

    All of the acting was pretty wooden. Also, how ’bout those QUALITY visual effects?

    Anyway…represent Negima Live Action survivors! I should get a bumper sticker for that. :P

    Trainwreck ftl. Even when watching knowing how horrid it was gonna be, I kept going wtf! The camera was jerky, the lightning was bad and the sets were cramped. All the acting felt forced. And wtf is with all the freaking posing?

    And talk about missing parts. It goes from Negi being assigned to being found out to teaching in class to living in Asuna’s room to the love potion and getting chased to being accepted by Asuna, with nothing of plot/explanation/resolutions in between. God my eyes are buring after this.

    @Xellos Lol, KonotaXSetsuna yuri and a love potion induced orgy can probably save anything from being utter crap.

    Yup, you are definitely a saint, Kurogane. In my case, I turned the damn thing off five minutes after I started. It’s just so BAD.

    Well, you can do “reviews” for this piece of trash, No, “bashings” is the appropriate word here.

    I watched the forst episode too……………..I’m going to need to watch some Mai Hime….or Gundam….or ANYTHING!!! It was wrong on so many levels. I hope they didn’t pay the actors to much….well, they got ripped off anyway. And I agree, only the actress palyng Asuna knew what she was doing.

    They really skip a lot of parts. From the manga point of view, they almost cover one whole volume in one apisode.

    Nodoka with Negi is really something while Sasaki strip in front of class also new compare with the manga.

    I dun like how Asuna dicover Negi magic by just looking and the sky.

    You are right about the headmaster. Both headmasters are the worst.

    Chamo is in the stich of the robe? I was hoping they made it real.

    Overall, it is not very good as the video is low quality. Waiting for it to be sub with high quality.

    You survived one episode, I’ve survived two. Does that make me a stronger Saint then you? Who knows, I need to watch one more episode before I make my final conclusion on the series, but still… If I can survive three episodes… will I attain God Hood?

    Survived four episodes…so I’m uber-saint!
    Well, honestly it isn’t so bad. The patch that is Kon isn’t good, and the magic effect sucks, but I found it somewhat amusing. Asuna’s actress was pretty good, and her fight with Ayaka in episode two drew some laughing fits out of me.

    Overall, much worse than the manga, but not so bad that I would puke from watching it or anything. After reading too much biology crap, Negima Live Action does prove to be quite entertaining…
