Fanfic / Nerima Magistra Nelly Magi

Go To

Nerima: Magistra Nelly Magi is a Negima! Magister Negi Magi fanfic that came about due to a discussion on whether it was possible to Gender Flip Negima! Magister Negi Magi without ending up incredibly creepy. Japanese Teeth decided to take up the challenge by making this complete genderflip which follows the story of the manga with slight differences to reduce creepiness and to keep it interesting. The romantic elements are reduced a lot but there is plenty of humor and a lot more exploration into the viewpoints of characters other than the protagonist and the world where [every individual, real or fictional has been genderflipped.

This fanfic provides examples of:

  • Attack Pattern Alpha: The Baka Rangers, although the formations names are from the Gothic alphabet instead of the Greek alphabet.
  • Cassandra Truth: The twins' insistence that Kaneda (m!Kaede) really is a ninja in training.
  • Double Entendre: Hayate (m!Ayaka) in chapter 13, it was immediately lampshaded by Fujio (m!Fuuka) and Fujiko (m!Fumika).
  • Double Standard: A lot of the more risque material is toned down on the basis it being pretty friggin' creepy when it involves a young girl and a bunch of teenage guys.
  • Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Asuma (m!Asuna) is far more restrained than his canon counterpart, probably due to the prevalence of this belief.
  • Early-Bird Cameo:
    • We briefly get to see Fate in chapter 11.2.
    • m!Chao is introduced much earlier in the plot than in the original manga.
  • Good Hair, Evil Hair: Haru (m!Haruna) has grown an evil goatee.
  • Goofy Print Underwear: Asuma (m!Asuna) wears pink boxers covered in teddy bears holding hearts.
  • Hot for Teacher: Despite the reduced romance, Asuma (m!Asuna) still has a crush on Takahata-sensei.
  • Ho Yay: Kon (m!Konoka) gives some clues to his orientation during the escape from Library Island (though there were hints even before that).
  • Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: Every chapter title is the name of a song.
  • Sentai: The Baka Rangers follow this more closely than in the Manga with Asuma (m!Asuna ) being the reluctant leader.
  • Shirtless Scene: Whereas Negi's sneezes have a tendency to flip skirts, Nelly's have a tendency to blow boys' shirts open.
