Being somewhat of a Negima! fan and even more of a SHAFT fan, I was rather excited to see this being released (and even subbed!). Despite having such a long title, the new “series” happens to be just three episodes long and are based more closely on the manga rather than what SHAFT did with the series previously.
This one is probably for all you Negima! fans out there since it jumps right into the later chapters in the manga without much explanation of what has happened so far. A few things happen in the beginning and if you haven’t had prior knowledge of the events that occur, I’m sure you’d be pretty confused as to what is happening (as I was). However, once the main part of the episode started, it was pretty much like a typical Negima! episode with a bunch of characters running around getting crazy.
Despite possibly needing to read the manga to fully enjoy these OVAs, I found the first episode to be enjoyable and can’t wait to watch the rest.
