Negima Second season – slow on the uptake
May 13, 2006
As usual, being the busy man that I am I am late on the uptake of the amazing news that Negima Second season is being animated by someone GOOD.
I won't go into how awful the first season was, only that I stopped watching it after episode 2 since the animation was godawful and the seiyuus weren't the best. I especially don't like the voice for Negi-sensei. I think they should have gone to greater lengths to make his voice less annoying and sound more like a BOY, since he (presumably) is meant to be. (optional yuri storyline: anime Negi turns out to be a girl).
Also, just to get all the bitching out, all the hair colours were wrong, all the backgrounds looked like they were filled in in MS Paint and Asuna's heterochromia iridis is far too pronounced and just looks stupid. From the look of the preview pictures, Asuna's heterochromia has been cured somewhere in between series 1 and series 2.
The new Negima anime is to be animated by the same people who are famous for (recently) Pani poni dash! and Tsukuyomi Moon phase, and I for one am extremely excited, since Negima is one of the mangas I have much love for at the moment (respect goes out to Aquastar-anime scanlations). And look!! Setsuna's hair is the right colour!!! ::squees::
Looking forward to much Konoka-> Setsuna fondling in the new animation style – one of my favourite couples of the moment ^_^ Look forward to a Konshuu no renai – Konosetsu in the near future.
