• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Negima Shaft.jpg

A Continuity Reboot of the Manga Mahou Sensei Negima! by Studio Shaft. This 26-episode series takes the basic premise and characters of the Manga, adds Deranged Animation and gags, removes almost all of the Fan Service, transforming it into a Widget Series.

There is also a manga of the anime series called Negima!? neo (making it the manga of an anime of a manga), which keeps the same overall plot but removes a lot of the Deranged Animation and Widget Series elements and adds a few of the old series's elements back in.



Chamo: Speak through one person!!

    • The above is taken to it's logical extreme towards the end, when the Crystal creates illusions of the entire class in order to trick Negi. When revealed, the girls all shout a single sentence, with each girl saying a few words.
  • Improvised Weapon: Asuna throws a boat at Eva while at the lake. As Eva says

"Who throws a boat!?'

  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Standard fare for Mana and Zazie who grade each other on the quality of the pun or others grade them when the team isnt together. They later start grading ones that they can't possibly hear.
  • Interactive Narrator: The narrator is not adverse to having conversations with the cast.
  • Language of Magic: Though most viewers (especially in Japan) wouldn't guess it, the magical script that accompanies the incantations is actually written in the Armenian alphabet.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Konoha comments on Asuna's obsession with Takamichi lasting "only for part of the first season. Then it was chupacabras.".
  • Lethal Chef: Takamichi and his world delicacy noodles.
    • Asuna also starts a grease fire attempting to fix Negi breakfast.
  • Lemony Narrator: The Narrator takes the Large Ham to a whole another level. He's even hammier in the English dub! Considering the Japanese Narrator is Mugihito, and the English Narrator is Christopher Sabat, this should be expected.
  • Mood Whiplash: Happens multiple the same scene.
  • My Friends and Zoidberg: Baka Pink.. full stop. She constantly gets cut off in her introduction and her personal movie was denied. She hates it.
  • More Dakka The bad guys in the Macross Shout-Out are nothing but guns.
  • Mysterious Protector: A Tuxedo Kamen clone known as the Black Rose Baron is introduced early on. At first, Negi believes that the Baron is his father, but he later finds out from Konoka that the Baron is really his big sister/cousin, Nekane Springfield.
  • Mythology Gag: Both this show and Negima?! Neo like to play with these. The former spends oodles of time on a one-off chupacabra joke from the original manga, and frequently lampshade Konoka/Setsuna Ship Teases. In the latter, chapter 29 is basically one long Mythology Gag about Konoka and Setsuna's trip to Movie Town during the original manga's Kyoto arc.
  • Odd Friendship: In this version Makie and Ayaka room together and have a very odd relationship.
    • Also, Takahata hangs roundabout Evangeline and Chachamaru quite a lot (mostly for tea and/or ramen, along with plot-relevant conversation). Sarcastic, relatively playful banter often ensues.
  • Ominous Multiple Screens: Used often during important scenes.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Setsuna's armor pactio card does this unlike her original self which she is half demon and has them naturally.
  • RPG Episode: Sayo's exploration of the dorm. She gains stats as she scares the crap out of the dorm residents from a top-down perspective like the original The Legend of Zelda. The Triforce even makes an appearance.
  • Running Gag: Many but Makie being Crushed and Asuna's Chupacabra are almost in the Once an Episode territory.
  • Sentai: The "Mahora Sentai Bakaranger" shorts. Poor Makie...
  • Shy Blue-Haired Girl This time it's Nodoka (who normally has purple hair but is always shy).
  • Shout-Out: A lot of them:
  • Shoe Slap: Asuna throws both her shoes at Eva before throwing a boat.
  • Slippy-Slidey Ice World: Eva creates one by freezing a lake, complete with caverns.
  • Spotting the Thread: Towards the end, the Star Crystal creates illusions of Class 3-A in order to trick Negi into jumping into an abyss. When Negi is reluctant to do so, fake!Eva quickly tries to pull a Heroic Sacrifice, telling Negi to jump while she stalls the monster chasing them. Real!Asuna (the real Class 3-A is watching the events unfold) quickly calls fake!Eva out for her uncharacteristically noble behavior, which is what tips Negi off that he is being set up.
  • Theme Tune Cameo: The theme from the first anime appears in episode 14.
  • Tin Can You Hear Me Now: Kaede and Setsuna tried to make these work between their rooms however as Konoka explained they don't work between doors, much to their dismay causing them to gain +5 Absentmindedness and -3 intelligence however it lets them hear the invisible Cute Ghost Girl nearby leading to screams.
  • Transformation Sequence: Occasionally invoking a Pactio involves this.
  • Utility Belt: Yue has one for her various juice boxes.
  • You Are Number Six: At the start of the series Negi calls his class by their number; in an illusion later on, their number is tattooed on them, changes places and is always in frame.
  • Wingding Eyes: Asuna gets hearts when she gets the game Zombie Rider: The Son-In-Law.
  • Wiki Walk: Asuna does this a lot. Only Konoka can explain the route she took to get there.
  • What Do You Mean It's Not Awesome?: Ramen just ramen. Eating, cooking, telling the future with it — Takamichi makes it awesome.
