Negima agian you ask, well you have to look at it this way, Ken Akamatsu wanted to make up for his mistakes with the original Negima. Here is my full depth review hope you like it. I will bring up the manga, people don't want that kind of stuff posted on here well I am doing this to make refrence and points of proof.
This remake of Negima I find to be better than the 1st one, why, you ask? Well the manga is what did it for me because when I was 13 I was getting bored with some manga so I decided to pick Negima. I have all 21 volumes and I LOVE this manga, my opinion is that it's the best manga ever. On to my point. Negima started off with Negi graduating in the constify magic assosiation as a mage like the manga began, which in the original it starts off with Asuna picking tofu out of a pool to decide a love fortune. That really sucks because you know you don't want this beginning, you want the manga idea. The other great thing about this version of Negima is that there is a better focus of action and suspense, the writters were thinking straight saying 'hey we fucked up so let's make it up with more action'. My other main concept is the lesbiens in Negima, I will describe their realtonships: The common couple is Setsuna and Konoka they grew up together, it's just that Setsuna feels nervous about it until the last episode. Then we have Asuna and Ayaka, these two hate each other but you're wrong, they act like lesbians in many ways. They turn red when close then argue, Spoilerin the manga Asuna in volume 19 page 103 Asuna meets Ayaka in a courtyard, Asuna admits that she has feelings for Ayaka.End Spoiler Asuna thinks she has no chance with Takamichi Takahatta. Not like written out I find this on Negima fansites and many peoples favorite couple is Ayaka and Asuna, I will get to more of this some other time. Overall, I feel great that this is a remake of Negima not based on the manga, but creative. I felt disappointed, kind of, with the original but hopefully the creator will treat us to a new series with the mahora festival where Chao Ligshen is the enemy. But overall, check it out

At first I was kind of surprise seeing the anime called negima shows again.
I imagine it's just another remake with little changes
However after I tried to watch the first episode, it changes my opinion completely.
The anime is funny also have more intense battle rather than the old one
Now for the marking (umm I’m not teacher!)
A direct improvement in the graphic from the old one
The evidence: watch the first episode of Negima!? then watch the old negima one. You will feel some difference in the graphic
If you like the old Negima music then you will also love this
I myself enjoy it a lot and now that opening & ending is ringing in my head
It's not original anymore so you should know already what happened after some part
However I believe (from what I have watched [episode 22]) it leads to different end
These bring originality to the plot and will make people to become anxious to the continuation
Now for the best part of Negima!?
In the old Negima (Mahou Sensei Negima) the pact are only for some people. Now the entire student got pack with negima.
The pack will invoke the inner ability of the person
Some of them are still the same but there is many new ones which I haven’t looked yet until the newest episode
Each person has three costumes from suka card, cosplay card, to rare card
You must see one of the episode when all of them become suka card!!! It is soooo cute.
There are a lot of funny things or good things that can't be categorized in the above so I put it here.
Example: sasaki makie shikaku (failure)! ....gaan! Or the ramen lover takamichi + eva
It will roll your tears of laugh!
You also must see the after ending which consist of the baka ranger, south park negi version (I’m serious!), and many more!
I assure you 100% guaranty will at least smile and at the worst you will roll over and over
A catchy character design and all version of cute or hot girl in many style will catch your eye.
I must say that I really like the character design as also the music.
Sometimes the jokes can be pretty boring since it is used again and again.
In conclusion if you’re looking for a stress reliever and want to spam laugh then negima!? Rules
Ps: Although the character is from Ken Akamatsu, but the story is actually from Negima!? Neo (manga) which is created by Takuya Fujima.
Therefore the usual ken's fan service is actually demoted
He however raises the battle tension which might be good or bad depends on people
I for one think this is a good thing since it makes me think this as the alternate world of negima

If you like the first released version, Mahou Sensei Negima, hen you would love Negima!?. This is the new completely revamped version for this series. Everything from the characters to the animation has completely changed. Along with the changes includes several twist in the story line, such as "pactio" cards and skills being unique and at the same time very funny. This anime is a must see for all who love great art and magical storylines.
The art is great but coloring could be better.
The plot is great; it is completely different from the previous version of Negima but awesome and unique.
Very funny jokes. :D
I love this series and all of Ken's work. Just when I thought when the first version ended it they put us on our toes with this release. Now I am a very happy camper :)

The story begins like the original story (Mahou Sensei Negima) with some minor changes. I was really surprised the first time I saw it. After some episodes, the story stops to follow the original MSN and a new adventure begins. The "pactio" are not the same and sometimes are very funny. We can't know what will happen after each Pactio. If you like Mahou Sensei Negima and want to see a new story more funny and like MSN, Negima!? is for you.
Graphics : 10
The graphics are really good. It's a little different than the Original.
Plot : 10
Some of the plots are the same of MSN, but the results are different. That's why I'm giving a 10 here.
Characters : 10
All the characters are here. Without them, it's not the same ^^.
Humor : 10
The humor of the remake is very good. I laugh more than the Original.
Overall : 10
Yes, I know that I give him 10. It's not only because I like it a lot and that U can't wait to see the next episode. I'm a great fan of MSN and this remake makes me really happy because of all I said before. I hope you will like it like I do.

Remake or version 2?
This what came into my mind. After all there has been remakes (i.e. Ah Megami-sama) and spin-offs (i.e. Mai Otome) the past six years.
So this comes along. The fun is still there, almost like Ken-sama's other work, Love Hina. Fun.
So I'll be ranking this one now....
Just like the original. But with new "variations" and the graphics definitely improved.
Clearly we got something here. The plot's maybe too familiar to some but, hey! This is Negima here.
...back on track are almost all the characters from the first version.
Overall : 9
So this should have the same appeal as MSN, but since the story is different we can expect new suprises, maybe...
