At least they have a kid playing a kid…

Ray’s take: Oh please, don’t do that on the keyboard! She’s 13 for God’s sake!

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.

  1. What the hell do you mean by she?!

    I thought Negi was a guy character? I am getting very confused.

  2. This is a live action drama, though. Are they changing Negi’s gender? How will the patented Akamatsu fan service work then? 🙂 Though I notice the title is “parallel”–does that mean they’ve reversed the sexes so that instead a little girl is teaching a class of 30 adolescent boys? That would be a riot. Literally, too, I bet.

  3. shh227 – My guess is that they’ll have her playing a boy. So just imagine the possibilities…

  4. Wow loll… Well… What can I say… Uhhh let’s see Crossdressing gender bender? Has Negima changed it’s plot?

    Hmmmm well it can’t be as good-I mean bad, as a Strawberry Panic live action.
