DONT TOUCH THAT WAND!

Ten-year-old prodigy Negi Springfield, has just graduated from magic academy. He dreams of becoming a master wizard. Instead hes sent to Japan to teach English . . . at an all-girls high school! All the students are delighted with their cute new teacher—except for Asuna, who resents Negi for replacing the teacher she secretly has a crush on.

Although he is forbidden to display his magical powers, sometimes Negi cant resist. And when Asuna discovers Negis secret, she vows to make his life as difficult as possible— just the thing to prepare Negi for the challenges of life as a master wizard!

Includes special extras after the story!

Review:

"A bespectacled young boy magician enters a new school, where he will learn all about life, love and the extent of his powers — which include his ability to remove girls' clothing just by sneezing. Ten-year-old Negi Springfield is a new graduate from magic school who is sent to Japan to teach English to a class of 31 eighth graders. The twist? It's an all-girls school. Since this is by Akamatsu, the cartoonist behind the extremely popular Love Hina, the story includes page after page of sexual innuendo, panty shots and the odd manga convention of teenaged girls who look cartoony with their clothes on, and like Maxim models when they lose them in some embarrassing manner. Negi himself is adorable, as people keep reminding him ('Damn my charisma!' he says at one point). But that doesn't go far with Asuna, a temperamental student who is in love with 30-year-old Professor Takahata (the only adult within sight). To atone for accidentally removing her clothes on several occasions, Negi agrees to help Asuna by brewing up a love potion. Silly, unsurprising situations ensue, but if readers can get past the idea of teenaged girls pawing a 10-year-old boy, they should enjoy Akamatsu's real fondness for his cast and inventive, energetic cartooning, which is as loopy and manic as the story. A tense dodgeball showdown between Negi's class and the dreaded St. Ursula Girl's High School team showcases both to fine effect. (Apr.) " Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Ken Akamatsu's third series is hard to describe, as it is a fusion of many different ideas, themes, and genres. While a wizard prodigy teaching at an all-girls school sounds weird at first, it seems that Negima! is just another romantic comedy like Love Hina, yet the plot is not just comedic. As the series progresses, Akamatsu adds more and more to the story; fantasy and action are only a few of what Akamatsu has to offer. While the fan service and sexual innuendo may be distracting at times, it is still something that is beautifully weaved into the plot, an essential element to the story (as expected of Akamatsu). If the first volume is interesting enough, don't stop reading this series; you won't regret it.
