Great generic shonen manga or greatest generic shonen manga?
>greatest generic shonen manga
I've never known a manga to start out with a huge and unwieldy cast like Negima. Most series at least wait a few years to introduce dozens of characters with no hope of development.
Fuck no that title always goes to Ueki.
greatest generic shonen manga is the correct answer
fuck i love negima
Wow. I remember this from along time ago
okay seriously, i lost that doujin, i need it please
No, but great generic harem when it's actually trying.
negima is pretty fucking amazing
The porn and the Shaft series are the only good things about Negima.
i like it
I stoped reading negima a while ago but if Shaft makes a guest appearance then I better pick if back up.
thanks much! i'm the only one on /a/ that loves ayaka.
Thread needs more Eva
and negima actually develops its fuckhuge cast too
>>if Shaft makes a guest appearance
Fuck that, give me some Kitsunegi and I'll be set for a week.
really it does, every girl he's pactio'ed with has gotton at the very least 2 chapters to themselves
try the manga
really though, where's makie in this namek arc? i thought she was the nips favorite
Great show. Now all it needs is for Negi to go GAR with dark magic and it'll be ultimate win.
I remember the first time I saw trap Negi. Oh lawd
Greatest yaoi fangirl right here.
One of these things is not like the others
One of these things just doesn't belong
She hasn't been in the top 10 in a long time. Setsuna, Asuna and Eva are the favorites among the 11s.
... and somehow, Natsumi is number 10.
needs a timeskip where negi = this
makie sasaki fails at life?
future negi will look like this if he does'nt cut his hair. Once he hit puberty all that working out he does will make him ripped
One day Anon, one day...
Fuck no! I don't want to wait for YEARS for the mangaka to get off his lazy ass.
Needs more Akamatsu's wife
thats why I said a timeskip
SHIT EVERYONE WILL BE MORE AWESOME AFTER A TIMESKIP I mean Nodoka will be Kira, Yui will be a mage valkyrie, Asuna will be umm whatever she was too begin with, EVANGELINE WILL STILL BE LOLI. THERE ARE ONLY PROS AND NO CONS TO A TIMESKIP
Law of Ueki Hijack
this manga is a fucking rpg
and taht is AWESOME
kill yourself you fucking faggot
ah yes bleach is a piece of shit just like naruto
*furiously reads mahou sensei negima chapters*
now thats a good manga
I love it.
LoveHina Remix, but possibly greatest
Hey /a/ I upgraded your Anon.
This is Ken Akamatsu, he's not gonna write a competent harem lead. The point of Negi being ten years old in the first place is that we can blame his faults on his age so he seems better than he is. A time skip would ruin that. Also it would make the girls graduate and scatter, destroying the school setting and the LOL THIRTY GIRLS gimmick.
It's never gonna happen.
I've always hated Negi.
And we've always hated you Anon.
don't listen to him, i still love you unconditionally.
I liked the series initially, but then it went downhill when it turned into generic power level rather than use-powers-creatively
You don't read Negima for Negi. You read it for it's FUCK AWESOME secondary characters.
well the manga is pretty much satire and fun.
Mahora festival Arc was the only good arc.
Ok, I will read the manga then.
The Shaft series is much better than the manga. It is especially good when the plot gets forgotten, unlike the manga, which becomes torturous in School Festival Namek.
You guys can't deny it. This will be the pair at the end!
you're silly, but that's why i love you
Not enough Nodoka in the anime, though. Not enough Iincho either, but the manga shares that flaw.
Shaft's work was total and utter SHIT! I'd rather watch the 1st anime for the rest of my life than watch the 2nd series again.
Here's hopeing the 3rd anime series is the charm.
Can't be Nodoka. Can't be a Jap chick.
It'll probably be Asuna, but we can always hope.
the fact that you like ayaka as well is also a reason i love you.
No anonymous. The series was shit. The overall-art quality and extras were the only things that made it good. Everything else is shit.
come now thats an overstatement. the first 4 or so episodes were great, and the ova's were fun
I like Negima, because they don't stop to explain the spells unless they aren't in a battle. They just get to fucking casting them and blowing shit up.
Sorry, but I'm against your thought. Shaft series is just that: SHIT.
>greatest generic shonen manga
This for sure
moar liek greatest generic harem shounen manga.
negima is a good mix of action, characters, plot and most importantly, fanservice
Negima (The original manga) is fuckawesome.
You read it for the girls, and whenever Negi becomes awesome, your jaw just drops.
Motherfucking Chao boss battle needs to be animated FAITHFULLY and well.
What's your favorite girl /a/?
For me it has to be yue. Too bad good yue doujins are rare.
yeah a faithful adaptation of the festival arc would be fuckwin.
fuck yes, yue
/r/ doujins nao
Setsuna. Any incarnation (minus the 1st anime).
Funny thing is, you could tell Akamatsu was dying to make a shonen manga as you read through Love Hina, now all those pent up urges+a good understanding of fanservice led to one of the better shonen series I have ever read.
Also, if you are keeping up with School Rumble, you get the same vibe from Kobayashi. I wonder if the upcoming third season of SR or a new series will head off in a similar direction.
Character wise? I'd have to say Eva and Kaede.
She's got legs that go on FOR-EV-ER!
Chisame or Nodoka, I can't pick!
Evangeline. No one else comes close.
Fuck, she's got the power to grant you ANY fantasy you could want, granted you could make her to.
fuck yes, that would be awesome
Ahem, you forgot Nodoka.
Nodoka is superior. She STILL remains the ONLY girl to give Negi a romatic kiss. (non pactio, or possed kiss) And Negi said himself that Nodoka's kiss was the best.
Pig-ugly Shaft Nodoka is Fucking shit!
NODOKA WITH GLASSES IS JUST FUCKING WRONG!!!!! It makes her look like she's in her 80's!
i have a huge boner for Ayaka. after that chisame, setsuna and konota
To add to this; This is excatly why Akamatsu drew her with long bangs in the front to cover her eyes. He didn't like her with Glasses either!
Meganekkos are adorable, I don't know what you're talking about.
Some girls can pull it off. Other's can't. Nodoka can't. That's why Akamatsu drew her with long bangs.
Nodoka is your standard meganekko character - only without the glasses! One of Ken's great innovations.
Looks-wise? Ayaka, Takane, and Chizuru.
I'd facepalm so hard.
Cast full of awesome characters and they stick Negi with the meh one.
Seriously, as far as I've read (chapter 109 was the last one, I think), she's the only character that's more than a really minor character that I don't like.
to the guy who said a timeskip would be awesome, it would fucking suck balls. it wouldnt have the same feel, cause they would probably get split up from the same class, characters would be too old, and it would just become the next naruto or some other shit like that. also its pretty fuckwin anyway without a timeskip w/ grown up negi.
Have Negi train in the hyperbolic time chamber over the entire next summer break.
Hell, I wouldn't mind if Negima reached 500 chapters. By then Negi would have time to bone the entire class.
