Oi! Oi! Portland!

I will say that it was bad to the point where by episode 10 Akamatsu stepped in himself and took some control over the anime's production, too little too late though. The anime still suffered from hair coloring issues and artwork which wasn't even close to the original that was seen in the manga. Why did everyone have such fat faces? The end plot that they came up with was horrible and rushed. I mean, what were they thinking? I guess by then they just didn't care. Oh well, the artwork for Negima?! the second series, note the "?" in the title to differentiate them, was a nice improvement, but the story was weak and it was all too Paniponi Dash-y. Though that makes sense considering the studio that made it.
Anyway, I've rambled on enough, it all comes down to peoples opinions. I actually liked the first Negima anime before I read the manga and was horrified at how badly the anime butchered such a great piece of work.
The negima anime was what got me to look into the manga. After reading several of the manga I realized how poorly the anime had been done. But if I had not seen the anime I would never have looked into the manga. So even if it is not as good as the manga I will always like the Negima anime.
I read mine online other wise i watch the anime, but I think if you look at amazon, they have 19, maybe, other wise barnes and nobel
I tryed to see things from your point of view but i cant seem to get my head that far up my ass!
I guess that's just what happens when they make an anime way too early into a serialization that's slated for a very long run.
