New Negima Anime in 2011

Mahou Sensei Negima

The 41st issue of Weekly Shounen Magazine will confirm that production of new anime feature, based on Akamatsu Ken’s manga Mahou Sensei Negima, has been approved and scheduled to 2011. Kodansha producer Ishimoto Youichi announced in February at a Negima event that if the upcoming Negima OVA sold well, they would think about making a theatrical adaptation. Last month, Akamatsu Ken mentioned on his blog, that creation of new Negima anime had been green-lit.

The first of four volumes of Mahou Sensei Negima -Mou Hitotsu no Sekai- OVA series will ship on September 17, together with 27th volume of Mahou Sensei Negima manga. It will be a limited edition (a DVD-less edition will be available too) but there will be over 70,000 copies.
