Storyline

Negi Springfield is only 10 years old, but he is trying to become a wizard(Magister Magi) but he was sent to Japan for training, despite the protests from his sister. The principal, who was a friend of his grandfather, assigned him to be the homeroom teacher and English instructor of middle school which is an all girls school. And the class is full of girls, with "special" characteristics, like one being a vampire, another a ghost, another a robot, and others being athletes and bookworms. Negi puts a lot of good will towards everyone and works hard to teach them, and even though most of the girls are very friendly with him, they see him more as a kid to have fun with instead of a respectful instructor, except a few of them, that hate the concept of him being a teacher, one of them is an anti-social computer nerd and the other is a hard worker who had a crush on the previous teacher, and to make matters worse, she found out about Negi, and his magic. Think of it as a Harry Potter meets... Written by Anonymous

Genius Child, almost like magic.
2 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, I have to say, this is one of my favorite anime series. The plot balances absurd with serious very well. Also it is a very harrowing task to create a class of thirty-one girls, and manage to cover almost each one (well, mostly, but there are rumors of a season two, which could help with character development). Anyway, onto a plot summary. Negi Springfield is a genius child, to say the least. He is only ten years old, and yet he has become the teacher of a middle school class in a foreign country (he is from England, he teaches in Japan). Even more so, the teaching job is really just extra training for him. He graduated top of his class at magic school, and is now going through more training to become a Magister Magi (Latin for Master Mage). Negi is not the only oddity in 2-A though. There is also a robot, a ninja, a vampire, and a ghost (and the oddities only begin there). I really recommend this series for anyone who can appreciate some good comedy (though it is a little perverse, I must admit).
