• Negima!


    published in Empire No.67, Sydney
    Volume 1


    A love-comedy shifting from the riotous to the forlorn, Negima! teases out a romantic love-hate relationship between pre-teen boy wizard apprentice Negima and young-teen Asuna. As part of his final training, Negima must teach English at an all-girls' school where he encounters Asuna after replacing the teacher with whom she had been infatuated. Negima's meek demeanour finds its opposite in the fiery madcap Asuna, making for many a calamitous heated moment throughout Volume 1's episodes. Noticeably limited in its animation due to being a 'market-dictated' TV series in Japan, this series should nonetheless appeal to a similarly defined children's audience in Australia.
