A ContinuityReboot of the {{Manga}} ''MahouSenseiNegima'' by Creator/StudioShaft. This 26-episode series takes the basic premise and characters of the {{Manga}}, adds DerangedAnimation and gags, removes almost all of the FanService, transforming it into a WidgetSeries.

There is also a manga of the anime series called ''Negima Neo?!'' (making it [[RecursiveAdaptation the manga of an anime of a manga]]), which keeps the same overall plot but removes a lot of the DerangedAnimation and WidgetSeries elements and adds a few of the old series's elements back in.

!!Examples
[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Negima!?]]
* AdaptationDyeJob: [[DyeJob/MahouSenseiNegima Has its own page.]]
* AlternateContinuity
* AlwaysInClassOne
* ArtShift: Many, many times, most noticeably with the chibi {{Baka}} Rangers. Several of the characters also had minor changes between manga/first series of the anime to the second for identity purposes.
* AscendedExtra: The Narutaki twins, who are hardly seen in the original ''Negima'', have their role greatly expanded early on in the series, being among the first characters to have a Pactio. Chizuru and Natsumi also get this treatment somewhat.
* BadNewsInAGoodWay: Frequently, courtesy of Motsu.
** in a good way...
* BlessedWithSuck: The Neo Pactio system. Each time a partner transforms, Negi will draw one of three cards: an Armor card (the strongest), {{Cosplay}} Card (moderately stronger than normal), and a Dud card (absolutely useless); time runs out very quickly and the partner is starving afterwords.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Done very, very, '''very''' often.
* ByThePowerOfGrayskull: The series does this differently than ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', as spell incantations now are at the end of casts instead of before them. Negi uses Tel Ma Amorista and Eva uses Lilac Spirtous
* CastHerd: Most of the class seems to be in groups; however, the most blatant example is the cheerleaders, who are never seen separately.
* CameBackWrong: The {{Baka}} Rangers come back as zombies after getting Blown up by Baka Pink and then become girls in animal suits after being rebuilt by MadScientist Hakase.
* CanonForeigner: Motsu and Shichimi.
* CloudCuckooLander: Negi's sister Nekane. [[spoiler: Which turns out to be a case of ObfuscatingInsanity.]]
** Chizuru has her moments, too.
* ColorFailure: Kaede gets one when Fumika refuses to tell her what she will look like in the future.
* CurseCutShort: In episode 25 of the dub, Chamo says that he's "getting too old for this sh-*beep*".
** Negi also has one of these early on in the series when he's busted by Shichimi and Motsu. If you listen closely, he starts to say "holy shit" but manages to change it to "Holy Shichimi!"
* CharacterExaggeration: Quite a few of the class members. The most blatant examples are:
** Makie goes from the everyday GenkiGirl to the ButtMonkey of the class.
** Ayaka's love for Negi, while extreme, never went as far as making stuff such as coffee mugs, t-shirts and other material with Negi's face on them. (This one becomes a bit of a CanonImmigrant as a plane with Negi's face shows up in the manga.)
** Asuna goes from a normal girl with really bad grades who sleeps in after her paper route to a girl who suffers from AttentionDeficitOohShiny with hyperfocus whose train of thoughts can only be understood by Konoka.
** Yuna goes from a [[GenkiGirl Genki]] {{Gunslinger}} to a gun-obsessed tank {{otaku}} who just drools over Mana's guns. Whereas the Cheerleaders thought Yuna was over Mana's guns.
* {{Chupacabra}}: Asuna is obsessed with them and forms the ((Chupacabra)) [[JapaneseSchoolClub Research Society]].
* DerangedAnimation: Everywhere but the Opening is especially deranged.
** [[http://img830.imageshack.us/img830/9075/arigatounegimas2ep13x26.png Chibi versions of the girls on Popsicle sticks being chased by a T-rex...]] it's that kind of series.
** It's Creator/StudioShaft! DerangedAnimation is their trademark.
* EyeCatch: Everywhere, often to denote ''scene'' breaks rather than commerical breaks. There's some really freaky ones like [[http://img810.imageshack.us/img810/7325/vlcsnap2011042521h43m26.png Octopus Zazie]]
* EvolvingCredits: The first time an episode has the "A-LY-A!" ending animation, there is a lone chibi-Asuna "assisting" the music, with maracas. Konoka and some others start to join two episodes later.
* ExpressiveHair: Asuna's is extremely expressive, spelling words, pointing at things of interest and creating CrossPoppingVeins, among other things.
* TheTeam: The {{Baka}} [[{{Sentai}} Rangers]] (Dummy Force in the dub) was once a throwaway line in the original manga about the 5 worst students in the class. It gets expanded to its own short miniseries in this where they spoof {{Sentai}}, gain powers to fight crime and constantly fail at trying to live up to their roles.
* FourLeafClover: Yue gives one to Nodoka to support Negi in his final battle
* GagSeries
* GagDub: Well, kind of. FUNimation's dub somehow manages to make the series even sillier.
* GamerChick: Asuna is ecstatic when she gets Zombie Rider: The Son-in-Law used. Setsuna is strangely fascinated by it; she Konoka, and Asuna are seen playing it on different occasions.
* GogglesDoSomethingUnusual:
** Until Sayo makes her Pactio with Negi, the only way the normal students can see her is via an enchanted camera.
** Fumika's cosplay item is a magnifying glass that shows what things will look like in the future.
* HeavySleeper: Asuna gets this now in addition to the already present NotAMorningPerson.
* HiveMind:
** The cheerleaders are turned into this.
** Whenever a group of students are possessed by the Star Crystal, they're turned into this. It's taken to the point where the Crystal will say a sentence while cycling through each girl's voice. Quickly {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in the Japanese dub by Chamo.
---> '''Chamo:''' Speak through one person!!
** The above is taken to it's logical extreme towards the end, [[spoiler:when the Crystal creates illusions of the entire class in order to trick Negi. When revealed, the girls all shout a single sentence, with each girl saying a few words.]]
* ImprovisedWeapon: Asuna throws a boat at Eva while at the lake. As Eva says
--> "Who throws a boat!?'
* IncrediblyLamePun: Standard fare for Mana and Zazie who grade each other on the quality of the pun or others grade them when the team isnt together. They later start grading ones that they can't possibly hear.
** One of the few times this ISN'T done is when they're all in their Suka/Dud forms.
* InteractiveNarrator: The narrator is not adverse to having conversations with the cast.
* LanguageOfMagic: Though most viewers (especially in Japan) wouldn't guess it, the magical script that accompanies the incantations is actually written in the Armenian alphabet.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Konoka comments on Asuna's obsession with Takamichi lasting "only for part of the first season. Then it was chupacabras.".
* LethalChef:
** Takamichi and his world delicacy noodles.
** Asuna also starts a grease fire attempting to fix Negi breakfast.
* LemonyNarrator: The Narrator takes the LargeHam to a whole another level. He's ''even hammier'' in the English dub! Considering the Japanese Narrator is Creator/{{Mugihito}}, and the English Narrator is Creator/ChristopherSabat, [[IncomingHam this should be expected]].
* LyricalColdOpen: The "A-LY-YA!" ending themes.
* MoodWhiplash: Happens multiple times...in the same scene.
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Baka Pink.. full stop. She constantly gets cut off in her introduction and her [[TheMovie personal movie]] was denied. She [[CryCute hates it]].
* MoreDakka The bad guys in the {{Macross}} {{shoutout}} are [[http://img714.imageshack.us/img714/9075/arigatounegimas2ep13x26.png nothing but guns]].
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Ramen. Eating, cooking, telling the future with it -- Takamichi makes it awesome.
* MysteriousProtector: A [[Franchise/SailorMoon Tuxedo Kamen]] clone known as the Black Rose Baron is introduced early on. At first, Negi believes that the Baron is his father, [[spoiler:but he later finds out from Konoka that the Baron is really his big sister/cousin, Nekane Springfield. If you listen closely you can tell its voiced by a woman]]
* MythologyGag: Both this show and ''Negima?! Neo'' like to play with these. The former spends oodles of time on a one-off chupacabra joke from the original manga, and frequently lampshade Konoka/Setsuna {{Ship Tease}}s. In the latter, chapter 29 is basically one long MythologyGag about Konoka and Setsuna's trip to Movie Town during the original manga's Kyoto arc.
** In episode 14, during a scene in which all of Negi's students who haven't yet entered pactios with him do so by kissing him one by one, the music that plays is the opening theme from [[MahouSenseiNegima Negima!]] The animation for that opening ended with each of Negi's students leaning in to kiss him.
* NotSoExtinct: Asuna spends 24 out of 26 episodes looking the {{Chupacabra}} which everyone says doesn't exist; they create a Chupacabra school club and order T-shirts and other items. At the end of the series, she finds one (which she quickly puts to work signing T-shirts.)
* OddFriendship:
** In this version Makie and Ayaka room together and have a very odd relationship.
** Also, Takahata hangs roundabout Evangeline and Chachamaru quite a lot (mostly for tea and/or ramen, along with plot-relevant conversation). Sarcastic, relatively playful banter often ensues.
** Makie and Motsu seem to strike up an odd friendship as well.
* OminousMultipleScreens: Used often during important scenes.
* PowerGivesYouWings: Setsuna's armor pactio card does this unlike her original self which she is half demon and has them naturally.
* RPGEpisode: Sayo's exploration of the dorm. She gains stats as she scares the crap out of the dorm residents from a top-down perspective like the original ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda''. The Triforce even makes an appearance.
* RunningGag:
** Makie being '''Crushed''' and Asuna's {{Chupacabra}} are almost in the OnceAnEpisode territory.
** The three minutes it takes to cook instant noodles. ItMakesSenseInContext. [[GagSeries Kind of]].
** In episode 14, Kazumi frequently runs up to Negi to tell him there's something going wrong.
* {{Sentai}}: The "Mahora Sentai Bakaranger" shorts. [[TheChewToy Poor Makie...]]
* ShyBlueHairedGirl This time it's Nodoka (who normally has purple hair but is always shy).
* ShoutOut: A lot of them:
** Throughout one episode, bags appear with names of famous warriors from the RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms novel.
** The Triforce shows up during Sayo's exploration of the dorm.
** [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Sayoth Park]] [[http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/3066/arigatounegimas2ep20x26.png]]
** VideoGame/StreetFighterIII [[http://img831.imageshack.us/img831/7034/arigatounegimas2ep08x26.png]]
** {{Macross}} In a really weird shoutout Ku Fei gets to play the role of TheCaptain ([[http://img848.imageshack.us/img848/9075/arigatounegimas2ep13x26.png Complete with hat and cape]]). Yuna, Ako and Akira get the roles of the BridgeBunnies, Mana, Zazie, Asakura play the role of the {{Ace Pilot}}s. The LemonyNarrator [[LampshadeHanging points out]] that not one of them questioned the arrival of SpaceInvaders.
** In the same sequence [[http://img191.imageshack.us/img191/9075/arigatounegimas2ep13x26.png This angle]] is exactly the same as a certain Ace Pilot in CodeGeass.
** again in that sequence the targeting screen looks a lot like a [[http://img828.imageshack.us/img828/9075/arigatounegimas2ep13x26.png certain atari game]].
** The "Super" PowerGlove makes an appearance
** Kumā makes an appearance on a sign during the camping trip.
** When Eva grows to gigantic size, the reactions of the other characters are almost identical to a scene from the 2nd season of ''Anime/GalaxyAngel''.
** There's a Pokemon shoutout at one point.
** In episode 21 when Evangeline and Chachamaru become mysteriously trapped in a house in the middle of a body of water, it may be a reference to the GainaxEnding of ''Anime/TsukuyomiMoonPhase'', especially considering that like that show's protagonist Hazuki, Evangeline is a vampire. Evangeline even turns up in a cat costume at the end of the episode, while Hazuki frequently wore a CatEaredHeadband.
** The status screens in ep 26 greatly resemble the interface in ''VideoGame/EtrianOdyssey''.
** In one episode, Mana can be seen cleaning a [[http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/9103/screenshot20120902at405.png gun]]. That gun happens to be the [[http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/4/46928/1754534-nge_positron_rifle_composite_2.jpg positron rifle]] from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. The design is slightly different, but the plate reading "JSSDR" is nearly identical to the one reading "JSSDF" on the rifle in Evangelion.
* ShoeSlap: Asuna throws both her shoes at Eva before throwing a boat.
* SlippySlideyIceWorld: Eva creates one by freezing a lake, complete with caverns.
* SpottingTheThread: Towards the end, [[spoiler:the Star Crystal creates illusions of Class 3-A in order to trick Negi into jumping into an abyss. When Negi is reluctant to do so, fake!Eva quickly tries to pull a HeroicSacrifice, telling Negi to jump while she stalls the monster chasing them. Real!Asuna (the real Class 3-A is watching the events unfold) quickly calls fake!Eva out for her uncharacteristically noble behavior, which is what tips Negi off that he is being set up.]]
* ThemeTuneCameo: The theme from the first anime appears in episode 14.
* TinCanYouHearMeNow: Kaede and Setsuna tried to make these work between their rooms however as [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_arigato_3431.jpg Konoka explained]] they don't work between doors, much to their dismay causing them to gain [[RPGEpisode +5 Absentmindedness and -3 intelligence]] however it lets them hear the invisible CuteGhostGirl nearby leading to screams.
* TransformationSequence: Occasionally invoking a Pactio involves this.
* UtilityBelt: Yue has one for her various juice boxes.
* YouAreNumberSix: At the start of the series Negi calls his class by their number; in an illusion later on, their number is tattooed on them, changes places and is always in frame.
** In the "normal" opening sequence (there are a few variants of this) the girls are nearly ALWAYS depicted with their number next to them. This even occurs when their face isn't shown. The only exception to this is when the girls are walking at the beginning (some are, some aren't) and Asuna when she's running through the desks with Negi.
* WingdingEyes: Asuna gets hearts when she gets the game Zombie Rider: The Son-In-Law.
* WikiWalk: Asuna does this a lot. Only Konoka can explain the route she took to get there.

[[folder:Negima!? Neo]]
* ACupAngst: Anya, just like in the original, but here it's played with even more.

* DisposableFiance: [[spoiler:Fate.]]
* MissionControl: Negi in the Baka Rangers shorts.
* PantyThief: A cat making a bed for her kittens and not Chamo for once.
