This show guide covers both the Funimation version and the Japanese version.
To become a Master Wizard like his father, the ten year old Negi Springfield must put aside his developing magical skills, and teach English to a middle school class on the Mahoraba campus. Not a problem, except that his class is all girls, each with her own personality, and some even have magical powers and hidden abilities. With so many pretty young girls wanting to win an even younger "Negi-sensei's" affection, how will poor Negi make it through the year?
A fun little show from the mind of Ken Akamatsu, the creator of the enormously popular Love Hina romantic comedy.
