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.

[21:50] <kur0gan3> you might injure yourself
[21:51] <kur0gan3> whoever they chose to play Takahata doesn’t fit at all
[21:51] <kur0gan3> oh shit

[21:52] <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
[21:58] <kur0gan3> uh oh

[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.
